Mr. Dingle is the husband of Mrs. Dingle and the father of Becky and Merton. We never see anything but the back of Mr. Dingle's head, once, and we don't know his first name. But he's mentioned a lot.
- Pilot: Merton asks if the football team came to egg his house and claims his dad "installed egg-proof siding."
- Pilot: "It's only fair to warn you that my dad was a navy seal!"
- In Stormy Weather, Merton says he had to lose the wheelchair affectation because his dad "refused to install a wheelchair ramp."
