Mr. Spats is one of the parents of Carmelita Spats, and the husband of Mrs. Spats.

Biography

Lemony Snicket: The Unauthorized Autobiography

Mr. Spats is briefly mentioned in a letter addressed to him and his wife by Vice Principal Nero. They apparently sent him an article from The Daily Punctilio on the dangers of allowing students to read certain books. Nero used this information to fire a teacher named Ms. K (implied to be Kit Snicket). Ms. K responded by grabbing two students by the ankles and running away with them. Nero assures him that neither of the two children is their darling daughter Carmelita.

Nero describes Mr. and Mrs. Spats as "busy parents," and he thanks them for bringing the article to his attention.

The Slippery Slope

The Man With a Beard But No Hair and the Woman With Hair But No Beard mention all the fortunes they will secure from the Snow Scouts' families. One such fortune named is the "Spats fortune," implying that Mr. Spats will be killed so Carmelita can inherit the fortune, and then somehow obtained by the villains. Quigley Quagmire tries to warn her about this eventuality, to no avail. 

TV Series Divergent Canon

In the TV series, Nero mentions Carmelita has two living parents.[1] Carmelita says that they let her do anything she wanted. 

After kidnapping Carmelita, Count Olaf fails to ransom her back to her parents. When he wonders why Carmelita can't be sent back to her parents and Esmé Squalor mentions to Olaf that they "burned down their house with them inside."[2]
