Skip Jones is the husband of Peggy, and the father of Fred.

Physical appearance

Even considering familial similarity, Skip Jones bears an uncanny resemblance to a middle-aged, heavier version of Fred. He has blond hair, a large build, and almost precisely the same facial features, although his hair is beginning to recede.


Skip is affable, yet slightly absent-minded. He seems extremely close to Fred; they have a warm yet elaborate "high five" greeting ritual, more in the vein of two frat brothers greeting each other (than a father and son), and very devoted to his wife, Peggy. He is extremely easy-going, but appears to have a short attention span.

Insert details here.



  • He is terrible at directions. As Fred recalls, his father gets lost even trying to find his own bathroom.
  • Skip compliments his son on the elaborate ghost trap Fred constructs, hinting that this is a family tradition.
