As with my Fave Fictional Moms post I did for Mother’s Day (inspired by Natalie @ Browsing Bookshelves), I felt it fitting of course to feature my favourite fictional dads. Surprisingly this was easier for me to think of than the moms… and if you notice a trend, many of my pics are because they’re hilarious. Funny = golden. Anyway, Happy Father’s Day!
1. Arthur Weasley | Harry Potter series
Like I had chosen Molly Weasley, the patriarch of this magical family embodies fatherhood to all his children – and more!
2. Phil Dunphy | Modern Family
I love love love Phil Dunphy on Modern Family. What a hilarious character, and he’s such a great well-intentioned dad to those three kids!
3. Charlie Swan | Twilight
While I’m not a huge Twilight fan, I find Charlie Swan as a character – especially in the movies – really well portrayed. He’s witty, with a rather dry sense of humour.
4. Keith Mars | Veronica Mars
A fantastic father/private detective/character on this often under-rated show. I feel it’s like Arrested Development, where it wasn’t big while it was on the air but has become a cult fave because of it being available on DVD.
