Very Long is a monster-sized pirate who appeared in the first Puff, the Magic Dragon TV special, in which he captured Puff & Jackie Paper (the construction paper version of Jackie Draper), and planned on doing something terrible to them. However, Jackie figured out Very Long's dream of being a baker (thanks to the help of one of Puff's magic smoke rings), but doubted it at first until he and Puff were fed Very Long's homemade pies, satisfied with their compliments, Very Long turned into a baker like he dreamed of being and bid Puff and Jackie Farewell.  He later returned with Jackie with his recipe of chicken soup to feed the living sneezes and help Puff get his magic back.
