Bio: Not much is known about Pineapple. So named because his hair comes out of the top of his head like the leaves of a pineapple, he is revealed as Farina's older brother after they both get "speckled fever" and will both be out of school for six weeks at the same time the circus is in town in Circus Fever. When he's not stuck at home or in school, Pineapple earns pennies as a page for the local beauty salon, which the gang explores during their visit. When they get locked in a boxcar at the railroad yard, Pineapple and the others get an unexpected trip to New York City to see the sights. He and Farina also own a dog in Dog Days.
