Tim Taylor (Home Improvement)

We can’t deny his love of the Detriot Lions and power tools. Even though DIY projects didn’t always go exactly as planned he was a great father…at least we think so Tim.

Phil Dunphy (Modern Family)

He’s the “fun” dad, he likes to feel like a kid (and acts like one a good portion of the time) but when he needs to be an adult for his family he’s ready to flip the switch.

Phillip Banks (The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air)

He took his wild nephew from Philadelphia Will in and we all know how that went…He was more of a father figure to Will than he ever had and it helped shape him into a better person.
