Poindexter is a character in the fictional Felix the Cat universe. He is the nephew of the Professor, the arch-nemesis of Felix.

Poindexter is very intelligent, and always wears thick glasses, a lab coat, and a mortarboard. He helps his bumbling uncle concoct elaborate schemes to get Felix and capture his Magic Bag.

The character was very popular, and today the term "Poindexter" is applied to people who are overly nerdy or bookish.
