|Charles "Charlie" Townsend|
|Last appearance||Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle|
|Portrayed by||John Forsythe (voice)|
Charlie Townsend is a retired detective with a lot of enemies. For the protection of his employees he never allows more than one of them (Bosley) to know his appearance.
Charlie's birthday is in mid-November.
As of December 1979, Charlie owned a 100-foot yacht called the Wayward Angel. It was registered as being owned by the Townsend Agency, not him personally. Its interior design was done by Pat Justice. After its theft and recovery, it was impounded as evidence for three months.
Eric Knox threatened to track down and kill Charlie and his Angels because he thought he was responsible for murdering his Dad (secretly a Double Agent) who was discovered and executed in Charlie's platoon in the Vietnam war.
"Charlie, how will we ever know you really exist unless you come down here and have a coconut with us?"

"Faith Angels, it's called faith."
-Charlie responds to Natalie
"Good Morning Angels!!!"
-Charlie's catchphrase to all of the Angels.
