It’s that time of year when we give thanks to dad, give props to pop, say cheers to the old man and all that good stuff.
But around here, we think even fictional fathers deserve some respect because, for most of the western world, these dudes set the bar for “Pretty Awesome Dad”.
Sure, they’re not perfect. They all have their flaws. But at the end of the day or episode…these rad dads were there with a warm hug, a kind word, or a kick in the ass!
Let’s give a big thanks to these TV Dads for being the best guys around. (Tim Allen made the list twice!!)
