Professor Reed is Miss Pippin Reed's father. Usually reffered to as just 'The Professor'. He is quite senial and comes up with lots of silly ideas and stories. He is thought of as the most intelligent member of the gang, but is quite clearly not, although he will often be asked for a soloution to a problem. Professor Reed is quite old and not much is known about his past except that he never went to war and once went on an expedition with Sam Grant and Lizard Boot's fathers.
