[edit] History

Bingo was the youngest of the five children of Mungo Baggins and Laura Grubb, and an uncle of Bilbo Baggins. He married Chica Chubb, and their son Falco Chubb-Baggins was born in S.R. 1303.[1]

[edit] Other versions of the Legendarium

In early manuscripts of The Lord of the Rings, the name Bingo was used of the character that would later be named Frodo.[2]

[edit] Portrayal in Adaptations

2003: The Hobbit (2003 video game):

Five portraits are clustered on a wall in Bag End. One of them is Bingo, and one of Bilbo's lines when looking at the portraits is "Good old Uncle Bingo".
