He is a nameless hippie who roams around town without "caring" in the world. He is barefoot. When he's not painting murals or riding his unicycle, he operates a magic/pawn shop. At times when no other adult will understand Bessie and her friends, the Hippie will, and usually can help in some way. He and Happy seem to be on the same wavelength.
A quote from Hippie
"Ha Ha Ha. It's happening. I'm flying. My father was wrong!"
