HOMER SIMPSON -
Here is where I'd post my Simpsons video I edited for HumorUs that appeared on Buzzfeed of all of Homer's hilariously terrible advice....but unfortunately it got taken down. It summed up the greatness of the character of Homer in the first 10 seasons of the show. Everything the man said was preposterous but at the same time really clever in its stupidity haha. Sure he'd rather drink a beer than win father of the year, but he's happy just the way he is.
While he may be a little overprotective, you can't really blame the guy when he lost all of his other baby fishes AND his wife to a rude sea monster or eel or whatever that was. As a result of that traumatic experience, he's absolutely devoted to his son and will swim across the entire ocean to find him. That's nothing to sneeze at!
Not only is Atticus a pretty amazing individual all the way around, but he's a good dad to his kids too. He loves them and wants them to understand the real truths regarding life and humanity. He teaches by example the way to treat others, and for these kids the value of that lesson is immeasurable.
MIKE BRADY - If you want a father with all the answers all the time, look no further than the father of the Brady clan. Yeah, I know I used Carol in the last list, but Mike Brady's know-it-all-ness had to make an appearance in this list. He pretty much perfected the Dad guilt trip lecture speech!
DANNY TANNER - Raising 3 girls on your own is tough to do! That's why you ask your brother-in-law and weird friend to move in to help lighten your load. If you have a dad per/child you can't go wrong right?? Well, don't underestimate how crazy those Tanner girls can be!
MICHAEL BLUTH - We'll just completely ignore everything that happened in the fourth season and just talk about the good dad he was in seasons 1-3. Sure he was secretly kinda manipulative...but he's always just looking out for his son's best interests. Who can blame him for wanting to save him from a girl like Ann (her?) He wasn't perfect (like having a hard time listening to his son when he'd talk about loving his cousin for example,) but he almost always tried to put his son's needs before his own.
JOR-EL - If for some reason you foresee that you won't be able to be in your son's life (on another planet,) make sure you leaving a floating A.I. hologram of yourself to be able to guide him and teach him about his heritage. That's the considerate thing to do, after all, just don't take the time to make one of your wife or anything.
Honorable Mentions: Frank Costanza, George McFly, Mufasa, George Sr. Bluth and Professor Henry Jones
And that's a wrap! I hope everyone had a great father's day yesterday. Hooray for Dad's! Hip Hip Hooray. The end. And be sure to check out HumorUs' youtube video page for other funny dad's!
