Mr. Maellard is a supporting character in Regular Show. He is the owner of the park and Benson's boss (as well as the boss of all the other workers of the park), the father of Pops, and the husband of Mrs. Maellard. While not normally an antagonist, he is very well-known for his screaming that is even worse than Benson's as well as blaming Benson for everything that goes wrong.
Roles in Regular Show
In "Dizzy", he forces his son Pops to make a speech in front of a crowd and forces Benson to help Pops prepare for the speech or he will be fired from his park manager position (alongside the other park employees). Pops successfully gave a very brief speech, which was to introduce a new statue in the park. Mr. Maellard congratulated Pops despite his son's lacking composure, and left.
In "Benson Be Gone", he plays the role of an antagonist and demotes Benson from the positon of park manager when Mordecai and Rigby crash his limo into his office. Blaming Benson for Mordecai and Rigby's actions, Maellard hires a woman named Susan, who proves to be much worse than Benson, when she turns all the park employees into clones of her, while Benson was gone talking to the former park manager that became a "full-time slacker". Benson returns to help his employees from Susan's influence by ordering his former employees to slack off so that they can regain their former selves.
Susan reveals herself to be a demon and turns into a giant, and Mr. Maellard arrogantly confronts her. Susan threatens him and picks him up, and Maellard begs Benson to help him, offering him his job back and the keys to his limo, but Benson's predecessor and recent friend Leon, the former park manager, sacrifices himself and drives his limo into Susan's high heels causing her to lose her balance and fall to her death,sSaving Maellard, Benson, and the rest of the park employee's. Afterwards he thanks Benson for saving him.
In "Busted Cart", he is seen with Benson when inspecting the park, while Mordecai and Rigby intervene when they crash an unmanned golf cart into a tree. Benson then screams at Mordecai and Rigby and Maellard screams at Benson himself, and brings him to his office. Once again deciding that he is responsible for the actions of Mordecai and Rigby, Mr. Maellard forces him to drive to the golf cart dealership across the country before the warranty expires otherwise he will be fired. Thankfully, despite several setbacks caused by Mordecai and Rigby's going to an arcade after promising to help Benson in order to make up for their mistake, the three manage to get the cart reparied on time.
In "Lunch Club", he forces either Benson or Rigby to write a resignation letter after Rigby ruins a party at the park by sleeping on a lawn mower. He blames Benson for mismanaging, but decided to give them both the chance to resign. Eventually, he decides to keep both after Pops convinces him their contributions were valuable to the Park.
In "The Dome Experiment" he serves as the main antagonist in which he traps his employees (including Pops) in a dome to be experimented on, in exchanged for money by the government. After Benson figures it out, he and the rest of the park workers managed to escape from the dome, and are confronted by Maellard where he tells them that they finished the experiment. Mordecai asks him if the plan was to trap them with no warning, and Maellard confirms this. An angry Benson confronts Maellard and asks why he did it, to which he responds he did because he wanted to see what the park and its employees' would do in a zombie apocalypse. The employees don't buy this, so Benson threatens him and after some convincing from Pops, he admits that he put a dome on the park simply for more money, to which the Park employees finally get the hint. But before he leaves, he tells Benson he got the date wrong, and Benson cheers about him being right as Meallard and the other tanks leave.
He passed away in the series finale 25 years after his son's death.
