Just because a father is composed by artists and voiced by an actor doesn’t necessarily make him any less of a father. In fact, some of the most revered fathers in television history come from the world of animation.

At their core, these characters are really no different than Archie Bunker, Al Bundy, or Cliff Huxtable, except that they can all withstand an anvil to the head. The fact that they’re cartoons also amplifies what they’re able to get away with, and how forgiving we’ll be when they abuse their kids, endanger their family’s lives, drink themselves into a stupor, and even put their own balls in the microwave.
