TV is filled with all types of dads, from the ones who are unbelievably perfect fathers to the ones who are more realistically flawed. Some TV dads are good fathers, and others are downright rotten. All types are welcome in this thread. Let's talk about the TV dads that we most enjoy watching.

My very favorite TV dad is probably Andy Taylor from The Andy Griffith Show. As someone who didn't have a big relationship with his father (he passed away when I was only three years old), Andy seemed like the type of man who I would have liked to have had as my dad.

He's far from being a perfect dad, but he knows how to make me laugh.

I'm very sorry to hear that Supes.

I can't imagine the challenges you've faced as a result, but I am glad you ended up here with us.

As for a Dad entry, I'll go with this man first:



Sure, Steven was a liberal ex-hippie, but he was also a great (and very patient) father.

Andy Griffith was definitely an ideal TV dad.

Thanks, Vaporman. 

Here's another of my favorite TV fathers.


Gidget only lasted one season, but the father/daughter relationship was one of the highlights of the episodes that were produced.
