  • Okay, so the special comes with better cheese

  • and it's called never been fed up.

  • Some we wish were our dads.

  • Did you hear that, are you laughing?

  • Some we don't.

  • You like shaving your armpits, Hayley?

  • 'Cause if the terrorists take over this country, that's the first thing to go.

  • Welcome to watchmojo.com,

  • and today we're counting down our picks for the top 10 cartoon dads from TV.

  • Yabba-dabba-doo!!

  • Number ten.

  • Bob Belcher, "Bob's Burgers."

  • Tina, you're on the grill.

  • My crotch is itchy.

  • Oh!

  • Okay, now your telling me this is my daughter or my grill cook?

  • He may actually be the most normal and stable cartoon dad in the bunch.

  • But normal is a relative term!

  • He looks like a child molester.

  • Louise don't serve him, let Gene bring it.

  • Uh, Bob.....

  • Why do I have to get molested?

  • Because he's not gonna molest you.

  • Why?

  • Because your heavy.

  • The long-suffering owner of Bob's Burgers,

  • Mister Belcher does his best, or at the very least makes an effort when it comes to running his family.

  • Oh my god!

  • Huh, I know.

  • It's a cow.

  • You know what, you won't even know it's here.

  • He gets very little respect from his kids and clients,

  • but can always count on some comfort from his loyal and loving wife Linda.

  • And Linda, I'm sorry I called you a nag at the Christy.

  • I was in the heat of the moment,

  • it was really dumb.

  • Oh, thank you Bobby.

  • Let America do better.

  • Number nine.

  • Papa Smurf, "The Smurfs."

  • Over 500 years young,

  • Papa Smurf is always there to lend a helping hand or to dispense much needed advice to the Smurf population.

  • To ensure his blue friends live in peace,

  • Big Papa often uses a little touch of magic.

  • How does it work?

  • But even with the daunting task of running a town full of bumbling Smurfs,

  • (Yoo-hoo!)

  • (Ouch! Ouch!)

  • (Woo!)

  • (Woops!)

  • this wise elder doesn't regret his role as patriarch,

  • and that makes him one of the most devoted cartoon Dads.

  • How wonderful that my little Smurfs get all so well together.

  • Number eight.

  • Sir Nigel Archibald Thornberry, "The Wild Thornberrys."

  • The king of beasts, the lion, known to local tribesmen as......

  • Certainly one of the coolest cartoon Dads,

  • Nigel is a globe-trotting wildlife documentarian who brought his family along for the adventure.

  • Completely oblivious, only in the way Dad's can be,

  • Nigel doesn't seem to realize that his daughter has the ability to converse with animals.

  • So what now?

  • We do what we Thornberrys do best.

  • Snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.

  • Nonetheless he proves to be a caring and attentive father when the occasion arises,

  • and a charming oddball even in the face of danger.

  • No sweat! Easy come, easy go.

  • You, you speak......

  • I mean, you speak English.

  • Number seven.

  • Stan Smith, "American Dad!"

  • Osama is that you?

  • Gee, Stan, what gives?

  • Holy Toledo! You killed your son's dog.

  • Perhaps not the likeliest person to win "Father of the Year."

  • Ouh Dad, get off me.

  • Stan is highly focused on his career with the CIA.

  • His father planted drugs on without him knowing.

  • He has no proof.

  • I've got his confession on tape,

  • I was wearing a wire.

  • Why were you wearing a wire?

  • I always wear a wire.

  • With two kids who don't particularly respect him,

  • and an adopted alien who has nothing but contempt for him,

  • Stan is a good old-fashioned Republican patriarch who sees his family as an occasional annoyance.

  • Impulsive, manly, and radical as they come,

  • (Wait, you gotta believe me.)

  • (I don't know how that pot got in my van.)

  • Stan Smith is the embodiment of the American dream.

  • Sort of.

  • But.....

  • You!

  • Sack up and eat your wife's grub.

  • Number six.

  • Randy Marsh, "South Park."

  • Well-meaning but sometimes ignorant,

  • Randy Marsh is a relatively devoted father to Stan and Shelley.

  • While his drinking occasionally gets him into trouble,

  • (What the heck is this?)

  • Randy's PhD in geology means he's often asked to solve situations he knows nothing about.

  • Which cord is it?

  • You decide this, jackass.

  • Like stopping a volcanic eruption,

  • (Oh my god!)

  • (A volcano!)

  • or burrowing through legions of hippies.

  • The drill is getting too hot from all the hippies.

  • But whether he's teaching Stan about puberty,

  • (But Stanley you can't let them get in the way of your friends)

  • (There a lot of boobs out there son,)

  • (but they're just boobs, your friends are forever.)

  • or taking an active interest in his hobbies,

  • (Hang on, I almost caught the dragon)

  • (You almost caught'em.)

  • Randy still finds time to bond with his son.

  • But I flew to her........

  • Dad, dad!

  • What are you doing?

  • Number five

  • Hank Hill, "King of the Hill."

  • Clean-cut, straight-laced, and with an unnatural predilection for Propane,

  • Hank is a caring father,

  • if an ineffectual disciplinarian.

  • I just think if you don't read the newspaper, and the only TV you watch is the MTV,

  • you shouldn't be allowed to vote.

  • Out of touch with his teenage offspring and the world in general,

  • Hank's is just trying to reconcile his good old-fashioned values with an increasingly modern society.

  • What are you listenin' to son?

  • I don't think you'll like it.

  • Mother of god! It's all toilet sounds.

  • We may not see eye to eye with his sensitive son,

  • Hank is still a patient and devoted Father,

  • and less in a loud mouth than other cartoon Dads.

  • Okay.

  • I love you no matter what you do there.

  • Let's go get something to eat.

  • Number four.

  • George Jetson, "The Jetsons."

  • His world may have flying cars and household robots,

  • but that doesn't solve George Jetson's problems with fatherhood,

  • and bringing home the bacon.

  • With a Son who is up to are kinds of mischief,

  • and a teenage daughter who's attracting the attention of all kinds of boys

  • (Imagine me out on a date with Jet Screamer)

  • (Oh! Yikes!)

  • George's patient is often pushed to a breaking point.

  • Jane, now listen to me Jane, I want this bunch of phonies out of here right now.

  • But when all set and done,

  • he's still a loving cartoon Dad.

  • Number three.

  • Peter Griffen, "Family Guy."

  • As stupid as he is reckless,

  • the patriarch of the Griffen clan,

  • puts his family in harm's way at almost daily rate.

  • Barely kept and checked by his forgiving wife,

  • and often out-thought by his own dog,

  • Peter has no attention span to speak of.

  • Oh no!

  • I broke the pipe organ.

  • Hey look, the deed to a cattle ranch.

  • And is pretty brutal in his treatment of his daughter Meg.

  • Dad, what is it?

  • What's going on?

  • I heard a noise.

  • Somebody down stairs?

  • Ah!!

  • Oh God Meg, you startled me, I'm sorry.

  • But even for all his faults,

  • Peter still manages to connect with his kids.

  • Just don't ask him for advice!

  • If you wanna get anywhere with a chick,

  • you can't treat him too nice-like.

  • Really?

  • Trust me Chris,

  • the next time you see this girl treated like crap.

  • Oh, Mr.Flintstone,

  • here's your paper.

  • Catch!

  • Number two.

  • Fred Flintstone, "The Flintstones."

  • Did you get your paper, dear?

  • Yeah,

  • and I'm lucky it only comes once a week.

  • Setting a precedent for cartoon Dads everywhere,

  • Fred was a bungling husband and clueless father before it was cool.

  • What took you so long? I've been worried sick.

  • Are you okay, sweetheart? Is everything alright?

  • How is little Pebbles?

  • What did the doctors say?

  • Fred, take it easy.

  • Though he's loud,

  • (Do Re Mi Fa Sol La Si Do)

  • easily aggravated, and always trying to make a quick buck,

  • Fred is also friendly and will do anything for his kid.

  • Boy, that's what I call a short ride.

  • What does he expect for a dime?

  • Around fifty the moon?

  • By working a full-time job to provide for his loving family,

  • while also trying to keep his wife happy,

  • Fred is prehistory's finest example of a devoted Dad.

  • Go ahead laugh!

  • But remember, "he who laughs last laughs"

  • Before we unveil our top pick,

  • here are a few honorable mentions.

  • It's not, I just don't want to touch it.

  • Actually girls, to him,

  • well, you're pretty gross yourselves.

  • With your big heads, large eyes, little bodies......

  • Okay.

  • I didn't do anything.

  • You're caught up robbing a train.

  • What! I didn't rob who!

  • That's not a bad picture, though.

  • Off the rim.

  • Oh!

  • Almost! Boy, that was close.

  • Hey, what's up for today, Neddie?

  • Number one.

  • Homer Simpson, "The Simpsons."

  • How do I know this isn't some beautiful dream, too?

  • Ouh!

  • You know a pitch is more traditional!

  • Homer is equal parts awkward, idiot, and dedicated Dad.

  • Homie, you do remember your promise to children.

  • Sure do!

  • When you're eighteen, you're out the door.

  • He may be a heavy drinker, a voracious glutton,

  • and an all-round lazy lout.

  • But ahead of the Simpson family,

  • he's always there for his kids,

  • and ready to help any way he can even.

  • Even if ain't the brightest crayon in the box.

  • Your the best Father a boy could ever have.

  • Aye, son.

  • Now you got little hands.

  • Can you reach under that mower and pull out that skate?

  • Never mind.

  • Though we often strangles his son,

  • and sometimes ignores his daughter's skills,

  • (Meggie, cut that racket.)

  • Homer is definitely the most famous cartoon Dad, ever.

  • Why am I such a loser? Why?

  • Well your Father was a loser,

  • and his Father, and his Father.

  • It's genetic, man!

  • Do you agree with our list?

  • Who's your favorite cartoon Dad?

  • Is that all you got, storm?

  • Wind-chimes!!
