Mr Pickwick is a character from Charles Dickens' first published novel entitled The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club or better known as The Pickwick Papers. Mr Pickwick is the novel's main character and president of the Pickwick Club. He makes the suggestion to three other characters to journey to remote places and to report on all that occurs. The characters are all very comic and have equally exaggerated responses to different situations.
