    Harold Wilson is a recurring character in The Amazing World of Gumball. He is the father of Tobias and Rachel and the husband of Jackie. He appears to work as a psychologist. He is voiced by Kerry Shale.

    Why He Isn't So Amazing

    1. He is incredibly egotistical, immature, and selfish. Examples of Harold Wilson's egotism, immaturity, and selfishness:
      • "The Cycle" in general. See it below.
      • In "The Castle" he pokes random people for fun and he starts a wild party in the Watterson's home and refuses to leave and gets them kicked out, though this can be seen as hilarious.
      • In "The Silence" he scammed Gumball and Darwin into paying him for his pool house instead of giving him therapeutic help and getting no comeuppance.
      • In "The Shell” he cowardly abandons his wife in a car to save himself. Some husband.
      • In "The Choices" where Nicole hallucinates a different life where she’s with him instead of Richard, and he manipulates Nicole to go out with him, makes their wedding all about him instead of her, and mistreats her. Although none of this happens, it shows how he would’ve acted.
    2. "The Cycle" reveals that he is at his absolute worst:
      • Harold is a complete jerk who bullied Richard Watterson since high school, and it maintained the cycle through adulthood, much to Gumball, Darwin, and Anais' chagrin.
        • The most infamous example of his torment is when Harold created a fake letter for Richard, notifying that he was chosen to become the prom king by Principal Brown.
        • Other than the prom incident, Harold crossed the line a few times, going as far as deliberately crashing the Watterson family car in the parking lot and "friendly" teasing Richard in the clothing aisle.
      • When he thinks he’s rich from a fake blank check he finds on the street, Harold mistreats everyone around him and even leaves his wife for a younger woman.
      • His running laugh can get annoying.
    3. He is a bad influence on his kids Tobias and especially Rachel.
      • Given his arrogant manchild behavior, it is heavily implied that he is the reason why Tobias often acts this way to Gumball and Darwin in general, which somehow parallels to that of Harold and Richard during high school.
    4. He is a Casanova loser who wants to be popular with girls, which is one of the main traits given to his son, along with his mean-spirited personality.
    5. Twenty-one pathetic words: "That was as easy as taking candy from a buh.... What was the expression again? Oh yes. A brainless man child."
    6. Overall, he's one of the worst characters in an otherwise good show in TAWOG, along with Margaret, Miss Simian and Granny Jojo.

    Redeeming Qualities

    1. He does get his comeuppance in “The Castle” where Nicole scares him into cleaning up their house that made a mess in, and in “The Cycle” where Richard tricks him into blowing himself and his house up with dynamite off-screen thinking he's rich enough to buy a new one.
    2. He can be admittedly pretty funny at times.
    3. Kerry Shale does a good job voicing him.
    4. His design, much like all characters, is admittedly passable.
