Things You Should Know About George Cooper

George was the only Cooper family member who didn’t physically appear in the geek-centric sitcom’s 12-year-run. By the time The Big Bang Theory began in 2007, he was already long dead. Despite this, both Sheldon and Mary used to share stories about their late patriarch, albeit mostly bad ones, giving the character a bad rep. So, when Young Sheldon properly introduced him, there has been some confusion as the prequel’s version of George may not be perfect but isn’t the lazy and drunk father that his son and wife liked to describe him as.
