Psycho Dad

Jeffrey Todd Ridgway Sr., mainly known as Jeff & Psycho Dad, is the main antagonist during the first and third quarters of The "Psycho" series and the secondary antagonist for the second quarter of the series. He is Jesse & Jeffrey Ridgway Jr's father. Jeffrey Sr. is the former Director of Public Works for the County of Salem. Jeffrey is known to constantly argue with his son, Jesse about his video gaming and tells him to get a job. Later, as of the events of Psycho Dad Reacts to One Million Juggies, he had a change of heart.

However, his truer intentions are revealed in SCARED STRAIGHT, where, according to Jesse's Mother, that Jeff had secretly partnered with Jeffrey to teach Jesse a lesson during the events of Psycho Kid Gets Arrested, with Jeffrey serving as an instigator. He is also shown to be self-sensitive, as by backtalking to children and having to go to extreme lengths to destroy something in self-defense.

He is also a target for manipulation, as when Jesse used him to dig a hole on which he was gonna soak his brother in with mud. Although not manipulated, he is used as a pawn to banish Jesse twice.


He had a white cap, grey hair and eyeleashes, black sunglasses, pale skin, orange shirt with white line, white pants and shoes.


Jeffrey is usually shown to be in an irritated mood in most videos. It could be that he (with the expection of most or some situations) hates being filmed as he has mentioned a few times. Generally speaking, Jeffrey is quick to anger especially when around his son Jesse. Jeffrey goes into fits of rage that usually include profanity and destruction of nearby items.

The "Psycho" SeriesEdit

Becoming a Psycho DadEdit

On December 9, 2006, when his son Jesse Ridgway created a YouTube channel, his family started to show support for the slowly growing account. 6 years later, on the verge of Christmas, he, with the help of his older son Jeffrey Ridgway Jr. managed to catch Jesse playing Xbox on his TV. In turn, he burned the Xbox in the fireplace and lashed at Jesse.[2] 2 years and 5 months later on May 26, 2014, Jeff Sr. was shown the events of "Psycho Dad Destroys Xbox" on Jeff Jr.'s laptop by Jesse and in turn destroyed the laptop with a nearby axe.[3]

Jesse's Job ConcernEdit

On August 5, 2014, Jeff Sr. steals Jesse's video games from his room for Jesse playing them without getting out of his room and in turn as a punishment mows them over the next day and shredding them into pieces as Jesse screams in agony. On September 2, 2015, his TV was destroyed by Jesse after Jeffrey Ridgway Jr. confiscates Buzz Simkins's Gameboy SP. The next few episodes, including Psycho Dad Destroys Xbox, Psycho Dad Wrecks Car, Psycho Dad Chainsaws Xbox One & Psycho Kid Ruins Thanksgiving are confrontations regarding Jesse's Job.
