Tuppy Glossop

Tuppy Glossop

Hildebrande "Tuppy" Glossop is a fictional character appearing in some of P. G. Wodehouse Jeeves books. He is a member of the Drones Club and a good friend of Bertie Wooster. Tuppy is engaged to Bertie's favourite cousin, Angela Travers. Jeeves has ruined Tuppy's relationships with the opera singer Cora Bellinger and the dog lover Miss Dalgleish in order to keep Tuppy with Angela. In "Right Ho, Jeeves", they break up their engagement because of a certain shark. But Jeeves restores their engagement with his normal brilliance. His uncle is Bertie's nemesis Sir Roderick Glossop and his cousin is Bertie's ex fiancée Honoria Glossop.

In the book "Much Obliged, Jeeves", Angela and Tuppy haven't married after being two years engaged. The reason is a lack of money on Tuppy's part. Angela's mother Dahlia decides to do something about Tuppy's money problem. She thinks that L.P Runkle of Runkle Enterprises owes Tuppy money for Tuppy's late father's invention which made Runkle rake in millions. With Jeeves's brilliance and the Junior Ganymede Club book she gets that money from Runkle.

Bertie has not forgiven Tuppy for playing a low trick on him. One evening at the Drones Club, Tuppy dares Bertie to swing across the club swimming pool by means of the exercise rings. Bertie makes quick work of the challenge only to discover that Tuppy has looped the last ring back, necessitating a fall into the water in full evening dress.

In "Right Ho, Jeeves", we learn that Tuppy is of Scottish origin.

In the ITV series "Jeeves and Wooster", Tuppy is played by Robert Daws.
