Appearances: Book, Film


Charlie Jones is the father of Coraline and the husband of Mel Jones. In the film, he is the counterpart of the other father in the other world, and both characters are voiced by John Hodgman

Overview

From what has been depicted in the film, Charlie is left with the cooking (although terrible at it as expressed by Coraline during one dinner time) as his wife does the cleaning. Like his wife, being a busy father and husband, Charlie has little time and attention to spare for his daughter as he spent most of his time typing articles for a gardening catalogue in his computer. However, although busy with work, Charlie seems to wish that he could pay with his daughter more often but is too busy and wrapped up with the demands of his job.

Later in the film, after Coraline escaped from the other world, he and his wife were kidnapped by the Beldam and was trapped in the other world. They asked for Coraline's help through the mirror in the hallway of real world and was later revealed to be trapped in the snow globe on the other world's mantlepiece. After Coraline saved them, they came back in the real world without any recollection of the events that took place. Afterwards when they finished their gardening catalogue, they hosted a gardening party and Charlie seemingly paid more attention to his daughter, Coraline. 

Appearance

Charlie is a lanky man with a long neck and face. In the film, he is depicted to look very tired and stressed under his glasses, and wears green long-sleeved shirt that says Michigan State and pants with a brown belt around his waist. Unlike his counterpart in the other world, he wear blue monkey slippers. 

Personality

Very much like his wife, Mel Jones, Charlie is constantly busy with typing for his gardening catalogue and have very little time and attention to spare for his daughter, Coraline. However, despite this, as a father, he also loves her and cares deeply for her just like how Mel does. 


Trivia

  • He makes a joke in the film implying that he had a rash on his bottom but Mel comedically interrupts him before he can say anyting too descriptive, like how Coraline had a poison oak rash. He calls it writer's rash and it has become a popular joke in the Coraline fandom.
