Daddy Twofoot was a hobbit of the Shire.


Daddy lived in number two Bagshot Row, next to Old Gaffer (Hamfast Gamgee). One night in the Ivy Bush, shortly prior to Bilbo Baggins's Farewell Party, Daddy Twofoot was gossiping about how Frodo Baggins's mother, Primula Brandybuck, was from Buckland. He conjectured that the Bucklanders were odd, for they lived near the Old Forest, which was wild. Daddy Twofoot afterwards attended Bilbo's Farewell Party.[1]
