    Geo, Jefferson

    Fred . Sanford

    Archie Bunker

    Ralph Waite as John Walton

    Howard Cunningham

    Doc Martin Ellingham

    Dr. BJ Hunnicutt

    Col. Sherman Potter

    Al Bundy

     Alan Reed as Fred Flintstone

    (Didja know Reed played Pancho  Villa in "Viva Zapata" with Marlon Brando ? He was a big, dark eyed, dark haired man. so he fit the role.)

    Ralph Cramden ( Honeymooners)

    John Astin as Gomez Addams

    Desi Arnaz as  Ricky Ricardo 

    Fred Gwynne as Herman Munster (The Munsters)

    Hank Hill

    John Walton wasn't anywhere near "perfect": Snapped at his  kids a few times, got stubborn over a court case.  Took pot shots at a road crew that had legal right of way. 

     Howard Cunningham was a far better father.  My "favorites": here are  Not necessarily  the "best" father figures, I just enjoy the nonsense some spout. The Fonz woulda made a great father .So would Capt.  Francis MulCahy
