Marvin "Bert" Finklehimer is a supporting character in The Amazing World of Gumball. He is an elderly man who is occasionally seen around Elmore.


He is a short, round, and red being. He wears a little brown hat, and walks with a cane. He also has only three teeth and overly large eyes with brown pupils, and he is very wrinkly due to old age.


Marvin is a senior citizen who is usually seen with the rest of The Senior Citizens. He seems to be quite energetic for an old man, as he is seen teasing Anais with a biscuit in "The Responsible," but he is also quite frail, as most elderly people are. He can also be quite stubborn, as shown in "The Watch."
