Bartholomew "Barty" Blake[1] is the husband of Nan, and the father of Daphne and her five older sisters, four of whom were identical quadruplets.

Physical appearance

Barty is a tall, middle-aged Caucasian male, with blond hair and a huge square jawbone, similarly to Fred and his two fathers. He wears a purple jacket over a white turtle-necked sweater, and purple pants.


He seems stiff, snooty, stern, and aristocratic. Like his wife, he disliked that Daphne wasn't a prodigy like her older sisters and condemns her association with Mystery Inc. He is also a bit of a hypocrite, as he yelled at Fred for breaking Daphne's heart, even though he never liked him and wanted their relationship to end anyway. He looked down on Fred and the other members of Mystery Incorporated.[2]

Once the Evil Entity was sucked into a black hole and altered reality, Barty's attitude and feelings towards Daphne, her sisters and Fred is the exact opposite of what it was before. He now approves of Daphne's relationship with Fred. He approves their relationship to the point where both he and Nan are planning their wedding,. He thinks highly of Fred, calling him a perfect specimen. He however expresses disappointed in Daphne's sisters, whom he considers as underachievers.[3]


Early life

He attended the wedding of one of his daughters (an unnamed astronaut daughter) who got married in a space-suit. His attire at that wedding included a purple sash, sword, and large gold medallion, suggesting he has a connection with foreign nobility.[4]

Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated

Season one

He and Nan tried to talk to Daphne into not spending so much time with Fred Jones and the gang after they were recently sent to jail for interfering with police business.[2]

He and Nan convinced Daphne to go on date with Rung Ladderton.[5]

Daphne's parents dropped her off at Darrow University.[6]

The Blakes hosted a dinner party for Mr. Wang. Then later let the gang borrow the family boat. He almost accepted Fred as Daphne's boyfriend, but he and Nan got caught in one of his traps.[7]

He and his wife came to get Daphne out of jail. Daphne chose this moment to announce that she and Fred were engaged, to which he fainted at after hearing. He then later showed up after the Freak was caught to take Daphne home.[8]

Season two

He spoke to Fred Jones, Jr. when he came to the door looking for Daphne. He yelled at Fred for dumping Daphne, even though he never liked Fred in the first place.[9]

The Blakes held a welcome home party for Brad Chiles and Judy Reeves at their mansion during which the Hodag attacked and robbed the guests of their jewelry.[10]

His Pangea car had been stolen.[1]

In the new timeline created after the Evil Entity's demise, Barty not only approves Daphne's relationship with Fred, but also decided to plan their wedding along with his wife and Fred's biological parents. He now expresses a big pride for Daphne and Fred, and a profound regret for his quadruplet twin daughters (who are now failed underachievers).[3]
