Originally the Pope was portayed as an grumpy, old conservative man speaking in Pig Latin. In later episodes he was depicted as some kind of rock star. The church leader wore sunglasses, sometimes played guitar or wore jeans. He spoke with an American accent and used phrases like "Yo..." and "Hey man". Sometimes he even claimed to be an atheist. He also appears towards the end of the Genesis "Land of Confusion" Music video playing a guitar.
