Oh man! Ned spilt ink over my poems! He is a real flat tyre, I mean a cube man! He's putting us on a trip to Squaresville, Mona!
―Nedward when Ned accidentally spilt ink on Nedward's poems.

Nedward "Daddio" Flanders, Sr. is the beatnik husband of Agnes Flanders, the father of Nedward Flanders Jr. and Nediana Flanders and the paternal grandfather of Rod and Todd Flanders.


He and his wife brought Ned to Dr. Foster when they found that he was difficult to control.[3] His father was Neduchadnezzar Flanders and his mother was Winifred Trout.

It is possible he served during World War II. Abraham Simpson once referred to a "Commander Flanders" when scolding Private Charles Montgomery Burns.[4]

Nedsel is still alive, as he was shown attending his son's wedding to Edna.

There is a discrepancy with his name because in the episodes, he is called "Nedward," but in comic issues, as well as the Flanders' Book of Faith's Flanders' family tree, he is called "Nedsel."

Description Edit

Nedsel looks a lot like his son except for the goatee and his grey hair.
