Ed Needlemeyer is Ned's father who appears in both the game and the TV series. In the TV series, he tries to comprehend Ned's nightmare dillemmas, this does not occurs often, as he is constantly confused by them. In the video game, he appears in the "good" ending, sitting on the side of Ned's bed when Ned wakes up and isn't scared. Ed is only a supporting character and does not speak a single line during the game's course, but plays a bigger role in the TV series.
In the TV series he is voiced by Brad Garrett.
