Walter Nichols is Josh Nichols's father, stepfather to Drake and Megan Parker, and husband to Audrey Parker.
Walter's occupation consists of being a weatherman constantly in competition with Bruce Winchill. He is shown to be a passive father, preferring the boys learn from their own mistakes but will be strict when needed.
Like his son, Josh, he is also a bit of oddball and shares some of the same interests: science and technology.
Walter is shown to be geeky and clumsy, who loves magic tricks and electronical devices. He is also very playful, as he often crack jokes to cheer up people, though nobody finds them funny at all. Still, he is a bit strict and persistent about the conduct of Drake, Josh and Megan. Despite that, Walter is portrayed as a caring and kind father.
Walter isn't aware of Megan's constant pranks on Drake and Josh, so he almost never shows severity towards her. On the other hand, Walter is often scolding and punishing her brothers for things she did, as they are never able to show him what really happens.
Relationship with other Characters
Walter and Audrey are a happy couple and almost never fight. The only episode where they have a real fight is The Affair, where it was kinda Drake and Josh's fault. Yet, Audrey prefers Walter's competitor, Bruce Winchill as the weatherman along with Megan.
Josh is very similar to his father. Both like magic tricks and are considered awkward. Josh is the one that most respects Walter, and often defends him in many situations.
At first, Drake didn't like Walter and hardly talked to him. In The Bet, Walter is on Drake's side and thinks he will beat. In the episode Guitar, Walter tries to befriend Drake. Drake often calls Walter by his name, but still calls him "dad" most times.
Like Drake, Megan never calls Walter "dad" . She also mocks him for his "awful" job and thinks he is goofy. For Walter, Megan is his sweetest and most innocent child.
