Bennett James is the father of two, the stepfather of one, and the husband of Ellen Jennings. He is a child psychologist for a living and thought of adding a dog to the family, which came along Stan. He is not a very strict parent, but can sometimes surprise you in a lot of ways—which is not a good thing.


Bennett is the father of the Jennings/James family. He is a big-time child psychologist who has written several books, however, he is kind of a goof ball. He always thinks he knows the best way to handle everything, and comes up with some pretty unusual ways to deal with family issues. He always thinks of Chloe as a princess, himself as a king, and Ellen as a queen.

Character History

Season 1

In "Stan of the House", Bennett got the kids a dog because they were not bonding very well. Stan introduced him as "Bennett James. A little full of himself. Sniffs his butt. Not impressed". He later chewed the kids out for not taking care of Stan properly after he ran away.

In "The Fast and the Furriest", Bennett brought Tyler home with his learners permit. He then gave Tyler a driving lesson, but was extremely strict and gave him too much coaching.

In "Dog with a Hog", Bennett helped the rest of the family get the pig back to Glendale.

In "Wingstan", Bennett played a minor role of helping Ron through his stealing problem.

In "World of Woofcraft", Bennett drank some gamer juice and went crazy with energy, running around through the household.

In "Bark! The Herald Angels Sing", Bennett went caroling through the neighborhood.

In "The Parrot Trap", Bennett was on the kids' side of getting rid of Lucy. He was talking to the vet about what to do to calm her down, and gave the advice to Ellen.

In "The Bone Identity", Bennett helped Ellen try to get rid of Chloe's princess phase.
