Father’s Day is this Sunday and in celebration, CNN put together a list of some of their favorite TV dads.
First up is Actor Bill Cosby as Cliff Huxtable who became one of television’s favorite dads with his trademark delivery of tough love to his five children on “The Cosby Show.”
Next is High Beaumont as Ward Cleaver, from “Leave it to Beaver”, whom CNN states is “long held as the prototype for the ‘perfect dad.’ Not to age myself, but I don’t really recall watching this show all that much, but I know his character stands out against many.
Bob Saget as Danny Tanner would be on my list, and he also made the cut here. Others on the list included Cameron Tucker on “Modern Family,” Burt Hummel on “Glee,” Mike Brady of “The Brady Bunch,” Ted Mosby on “How I Met Your Mother,” and Jack Arnold of “The Wonder Years.”
Do you think Homer Simpson should have made the cut? Who else is missing from this list? Who’s your favorite father figure on television?
