Walter Nichols is a main character in Drake & Josh.

He's portrayed by Jonathan Goldstein.

Personality Edit

Walter is shown to be geeky and clumsy, who loves magic tricks. He is also very playful, as he often cracks jokes to cheer up people, though nobody finds them funny at all. Still, he is a bit strict and persistent about the conduct of Drake, Josh and Megan. Despite that, Walter is portrayed as a caring and kind father.

Walter isn't aware of Megan's constant pranks on Drake and Josh, so he almost never shows severity towards her. On the other hand, Walter is often scolding and punishing her brothers for things she did, as they are never able to show him what really happens.

Relationship With Other Characters Edit

Audrey Parker-Nichols Edit

Walter and Audrey are a happy couple and almost never fight. The only episode where they have a real fight is The Affair, when it was Drake and Josh's fault. Yet, Audrey prefers Walter's competitor, Bruce Winchill, as the weatherman along with Megan.

Josh Nichols Edit

Josh is very similar to his father. Both like magic tricks and are considered awkward. Josh is the one that most respects Walter, and often defends him in many situations.

Drake Parker Edit

At first, Drake didn't like Walter and hardly talked to him. In The Bet, Walter is on Drake's side and thinks he will beat Kosh. In the episode Guitar, Walter tries to befriend Drake. Drake often calls Walter by his name, but still calls him "dad" most times.

Megan Parker Edit

Like Drake, Megan never calls Walter "dad" . She also mocks him for his "awful" job and thinks he is goofy. For Walter, Megan is his sweetest and most innocent child.
