Plot Appearance

Movie

An excerpt from the main article: Coraline (filmography)

Other father first appears in the the other world, in a room where he attempts to play the piano. Coraline Jones confronts him. Ater a dialogue where Coraline disputes his ability to play the piano, other father then plays a song for Coraline by having the piano play him by using mechanical hands extended from it. When Coraline sets out to find the the three ghost children's eyes, the Other Father attacks her while atop his mechanical preying mantis-like gardening machine in the Fantastic Garden. Interestingly, at this point in the film, we see that the Other Father truly did not want to harm Coraline (stating this as he attacks her) being forced by the Other Mother to do so via the mechanical hands attached to his. He meets his end after he destroys the bridge leading to the garden and falls through it into the water, he frees his hand by breaking the mechanical hand, and hands Coraline the first eye, (which was actually disguised as the top of the lever on his preying mantis) he accidentally slips through the opening that he made of the bridge, and falls into the water. He later drowns in the pond and eventually, the rest of the garden transforms into lifeless stone.

    She's a peach, she's a doll, she's a pal of mine.

    Our eyes will be on Coraline!"
