Hollyhock's dads model sheets.

Dashawn Manheim is one of Hollyhock's adoptive fathers.

He is a dancer and claims he's the wrong person to mess with in a dance battle.

Physical Appearance

Dashawn is a middle-aged African-American man with a tall slim figure and a dancer's physique and a bald head.

He wears black glasses and a long-sleeved black shirt, dark grey sweatpants with a drawstring, and black shoes.

According to the model sheets, he's slightly above 5 1/2 ft. tall.


Not too much is known about Dashawn, although like the rest of the dads he is very protective of Hollyhock and a loving father.

He seems to be a calm man, but he claims he is the opposite in a dance battle.

He also apparently makes Polish jokes, which Otto disapproves of (as he himself is Polish), because when he says Hollyhock is a thin as a pole, Otto thinks he means Polish people and says he knows he doesn't like his Polish jokes.



The eight men adopted Hollyhock, born September 24, 2000, and who was sired by Butterscotch Horseman and his maid/mistress Henrietta, sometime when she was still an infant.

They sometimes communicate with a Dad Speak of which the intent that people outside of the relationship (including Hollyhock) wouldn't be able to understand it.

However, unbeknownst to the dads, Hollyhock understands what they're saying perfectly well.

They live in Wichita, Kansas.

Season 4

They are mentioned numerous times throughout Season 4 by Hollyhock.

They make their first appearance in Lovin that cali lifestyle!!, when they travel to L.A. after Hollyhock accidentally overdosed on amphetamines, which unbeknownst to anyone at the time was due to Beatrice putting weight loss supplements in her coffee.

They blame BoJack and refuse to ever let him see her again.

In What Time Is It Right Now, BoJack travels to their home in Wichita, Kansas, and after begging them to hear him out, he explains how he discovered he isn’t actually Hollyhock’s biological father—his father Butterscotch is.

He also found out Hollyhock's mother, is his family's former maid, Henrietta Platchkey, and he wanted to give Hollyhock her phone number.

They agree to tell her, but still tell BoJack to leave.

Season 5

They seemed to have allowed Hollyhock and BoJack to talk again, as Hollyhock and BoJack continue to have a far distance sibling relationship afterwards, even visiting him in Ancient History.
