King Garrick is Hugo and Axel's father. He appears in the Disney Junior animated series Sofia the First.



Garrick is a very kind and caring father to his sons, and he knows them well enough to sense their feelings. Garrick is aware of Axel's boastfulness and whenever Axel is boasting to Hugo, Garrick warns him not to make Hugo feel bad. Like a lot of parents, he doesn't like it when something bad happens to Hugo or Axel.

In "Lord of the Rink", Garrick was shown to be stern but very vivacious, and his voice is powerful. He had a distaste for boys ice-dancing and highly doubted any of the men in his family ice-danced, unaware that Hugo was an ice-dancer. This implies that Hugo had inherited this from him since he told Sofia that flying derby was a princely thing in "Just One of the Princes". It is shown that he tends to put his family first. Garrick also implies that he and Hugo don't spend much time together, and he was caring enough to give his youngest son extra attention. Garrick doesn't approve his sons keeping their talents a secret from him no matter what they're good at, and what matters to him is seeing his sons happy with what they're doing. When Garrick saw what an amazing ice-dancer Hugo really was, Garrick was furious that Hugo had been keeping his talent a secret from him, and he admitted that he was all right with Hugo's passion for ice-dancing, forming a stronger bond with him

Physical Appearance

Garrick usually wears a brown jacket with gold buttons and a leopard pattern on the cuffs, a sash that goes over his left shoulder, a sash around his waist, black boots, and a navy blue bow tie. Like his sons, he also has hazel eyes. Garrick's hair color looks like a grayish shade of dark brown, implying that Hugo bears the most resemblance to him.

Role in the series

Garrick and his oldest son, Axel, both make their debut appearances in the episode "The Flying Crown". They and Hugo are at a flying derby race to support Royal Prep. When Princess Sofia and Prince James win, everybody starts singing the Royal Prep cheer for them, except for Hugo, and Garrick knows him well enough to sense how bad it has made his youngest son feel. When Axel is boasting to Hugo about how he remembers his peers singing the cheer for him, Garrick tells him not to hurt Hugo's feelings. Later in the episode, Garrick is seen on the balcony with his oldest son and Sofia's family to see her and Hugo ride in the championship race. When Hugo and Sofia are trying the flying slingshot, Axel and Garrick are both worried that something bad would happen to the riders if it goes wrong. When Sofia and Hugo win the championship race, Garrick is seen happily clapping for them.

He reappears in "Lord of the Rink", when he shows up at his castle's ice rink to see what Hugo and Sofia are up to. Hugo is too afraid to admit his passion for ice dancing, so he lies by saying they are playing ice hockey. Garrick decides to show Sofia the hockey skills that made him the "Big Prince on Campus" and puts on Hugo's black figure skates, to his son's horror. While demonstrating his skills, the skates magically make him do a flip. Realizing what kind of skates they are, Garrick asks his son what he is doing with Enchanted Ice Dancing skates. Hugo claims that he must have grabbed Sofia's by mistake, to Garrick's relief because he suspects (correctly) that Hugo had taken up enchanted ice dancing, which he declares is for girls. Sofia tells him she knows some boys who ice dance, but Garrick assures her that the boys in his family only play rugged sports. He also implies that he spends more time with Axel than with Hugo as he declares that he wants to spend time with his youngest son and says nothing about Axel joining them.

The next day, Garrick finds a way to spend more time with Hugo by becoming the Hockey team's assistant coach, and assures his son he would be coming to all his practices from now on, very much to Hugo's horror. During practice, Hugo does an enchanted ice dancing move called an axle to everyone's shock. Garrick voices it by asking "What was that?", and Hugo excuses himself, seemingly embarrassed. Later, after catching Hugo ice-dancing with Sofia, the rest of the ice hockey team tell Garrick that his son could not make it to practice because he was sick. But Garrick later catches Hugo with Sofia, thinking he is feeling better, and drags him to hockey practice. Still having butterflies in his tummy, Hugo tells Garrick about the ice-dancing recital but says nothing about him participating in it. However, with some encouragement from Sofia, Hugo finally admits his passion for enchanted ice dancing to his father. Garrick, Sir Henley, and the hockey team follow Sofia and Hugo to the recital, and are all wowed by Hugo and Sofia's duet. Sir Henley compliments Hugo's talent, even saying he'd judged a lot of ice-dancing competitions. Garrick tells Hugo that he is angry Hugo never told him about his talent before and he's very proud of Hugo's amazing talent. In order to still have more father-son time with his son, Garrick decides to be the new assistant coach for the ice dancing class.
