"See this badge? Cleanest cop car"

Darryl Steven Parks is a recurring character in A.N.T. Farm and the father of Chyna and Cameron Parks and the husband of Roxanne Parks. He is also a highly decorated member of the San Francisco Police Department. He loves his children and will do anything to protect them. He's also commonly mistaken for a mall cop by many of the children at Chyna and Cameron's school. He won a badge for San Francisco, cleanest cop car.



Though he obviously loves his daughter, he can be very overprotective. He considered pulling her out of the ANT program after the first episode because he thought she wasn't ready for high school. It has also been shown that he is very incompetent at his job, such as letting a purse thief run by him while he was laughing at him for having a purse or letting a suspect escape while he went to the bathroom. He also tends to treat his son Cameron differently than Chyna constantly. He's also shown to be a very lazy cop sometimes, he loves his kids a lot but makes them do work for himself sometimes. As shown when he makes Cameron get food for him.

Change Of Personality Over Time[]

In Season 1 Darryl is very funny and a scaredy-cat (fear of ants) as shown in the "transplANTed" episode and sometimes gullible.

In Season 2 Darryl has become very overprotective, and more of a serious cop, and he's also shown to be very caring.



In the pilot TransplANTed, there is a running gag where everybody (especially Lexi) mistakes him for a mall cop. He takes Chyna to the A.N.T. Farm and catches them at a party, which gives Chyna, Olive and Fletcher street cred.

In SciANTs Fair, he gets excited when Lexi comes over, thinking that Cameron finally is successfully interacting with girls.

In StudANT Council, he spends some time with Fletcher, because his own son doesn't hang out with him and Fletcher was suddenly being so nice to him just to get to Chyna.

In The InformANT, he gets gifts for his kids from the evidence locker. Chyna doesn't like her bag, so she buys a new one without Darryl knowing. He thinks she's shoplifting and hires Officer-39 to spy on her at school. He then finds out about Chyna's bag, but doesn't make a big deal out of it.

In The ReplacemANT, he helps Cameron on his 1000 word essay, but Cameron doesn't think that he is fit to be an ideal hero.

In America Needs TalANT, he waits at a popular bacon truck with Fletcher & Cameron, while Angus was ordering his food and pretends to be Oprah to get some of the bacon related snacks.
