A former US Navy officer who loves watching TV. He often sits with a remote in his hand, patting the sofa as if it were a ship. The most famous Sofa Captain is Captain Earl Pickles, USN Ret.
Earl: Hey Nelson, you want to sit here with your favorite Sofa Captain? I think 'The Flintstones' is on.
Nelson: You are a such a goof! Of course I'll sit there with you.
Earl: (like a sea captain) Aye aye! Clear sailing ahead, matey!
Nelson: (like a sea captain) Arrgh, the goodship Flintstones dead ahead!
Opal: Anybody want some brownies and milk? Sofa Captains needs their snacks, you know!
