Since the early days of television, the on screen father figure has evolved considerably.  From the man who always knows best, to the guy who hasn’t got a clue.  We’ve seen his image redefined, and redefined again – working class hero – single parent neat freak – live in housekeeper – animated doughnut eating, son choking, lovable shlub .  His evolution has been a sign of the times, transcending stereotypes, boundaries of race and orientation.  From reality, to actual reality, DAD comes in many forms, shapes and sizes.  Who is your favorite TV DAD?  Here are just a few of TV’s memorable father figures:
