About Mr. Fond

He is a bachelor, rumored to live with his mother and several beloved cats. Mr. Frond also has a close relationship with his stuffed animals and speaks to them as if they were alive. He is a skilled knitter as well. While awkward, Mr. Frond is not without charm and has dated Linda’s sister Gayle. He also has a crush on the Museum of Natural History employee, Madeline Greenberg.
His gullibility makes him an easy mark for students to take full advantage of him. He believes that talking things out is the solution to everything from surviving a hurricane to student conflict resolution. Title-character Bob Belcher finds him annoying, and the feeling appears to be mutual with Mr. Frond. Though their relationship is strained, Bob and he did bond over their shared love of cake.
