Mr. Bill Anderson or Riley's Father is a business man and the father of Riley Anderson in Inside Out. He is a caring and loving father who does everything in his power to keep track of everything in his new job, but also help his daughter get used to the fact they had moved. He is also an entrepreneur at a business called Brang. He has brown hair, brown eyes, a brown mustache with growing beard, wears a white shirt, a black tie. He is 'voiced' by Kyle McLaughlin.
In the movie, he is first seen at Riley(and Joy and Sadness's) birth as he says that Riley is a little bundle of joy. As the years past, he and his wife have a good time with their daughter and have a happy life in Minnesota. Him getting a new job is what kick starts the plot to the movie, which causes the family to move to San Francisco. The problems among the move are the investor, the moving van not coming til certain days, etc. However, he and Mrs. Anderson ask Riley to be happy about the move, which she stepfordly agrees. On Riley's first day of school in San Fransisco, he says goodbye to Riley before she leaves, but at dinner, due to work, wasn't paying attention to his wife's clear throat(in his head, his emotions were watching hockey) when she notices Riley's behavior(caused when Joy and Sadness are sucked out of Headquarters). When she signals him, he asks Riley how was school(which annoyed Riley's mom's emotions since she just asked Riley that). Riley(thanks to Anger being in charge) answers "School was great, alright?" in a annoyed tone which gets both parents confused, but Mr. Anderson gets angry with Riley for her attitude(which was caused because Joy and Sadness, Riley's emotions were sent out of Headquarters and Fear, Disgust and Anger took over their job til they get back) which resulted in a heated arguement between father and daughter. His emotions treat this as if were a military attack and put down "the Foot" which is basically, Mr. Anderson grounding Riley by sending her to her room for Riley's moody behavior which consists of a combination of anger and disgust. He later comes up to check on Riley and tries to talk to her as well as cheering her up, but Riley doesn't want to leaving Mr. Anderson to leave the room(thus causing one of her personality islands to fall). When Riley runs away, he only says goodbye to her before realizing Riley is not at school. After Sadness and Joy return to Headquarters and Sadness makes Riley realize running away is not a good idea, Mr. and Mrs. Anderson embrace Riley and she confesses that she misses Minnesota as she cries it out. Mr and Mrs Anderson then comfort her and tell her they miss Minnesota too. The end shows them adapting to San Francisco.
