The Big Daddy of Blooper-surfing[1][2] or Big Daddy for short[3] (also known as Big Daddy Blooper-surfer,[4] Blooper-surfing Big Daddy,[5] or simply Bloopy[5]) is a tan-colored Pianta who owns the Blooper Racers found in Super Mario Sunshine. He is seen only in Ricco Harbor, and he appears in only two episodes: Blooper Surfing Safari and Red Coins on the Water. He is very friendly, and he allows Mario to ride his colored Bloopers for free, although he "waives all liability for accidents," as crashing a Blooper instantly makes Mario lose a life.
