Nedsel "Daddio" Flanders[1], also known as Nedward Flanders, Sr.[2][3][4] is the beatnik father of Ned Flanders and Nediana Flanders, the husband of Mona Flanders and the paternal grandfather of Rod and Todd Flanders

History[edit]

Nedward at Ned and Edna Krabappel's wedding.

He and his wife brought Ned to Dr. Foster when they found that he was difficult to control.[5]

He possibly served during World War II, since Abraham Simpson once referred to a "Commander Flanders", when scolding Private Charles Montgomery Burns.[6]

Flanders once said "Homer, you met my parents" (to which Homer replied, "Not naked I haven't", as he was naked at the time).[7] Nedward and his wife were later seen attending Ned Flanders and Edna Krabappel's wedding as the only guests aside from Rod and Todd.[8] They also appeared visiting their son at his house, where they seemed to favor Homer's presence over Ned's.[9]
