In honour of this Father's Day (which is Sunday June 17th for anyone who needs reminding!), we have compiled a list of our Top 10 TV Dads!

Phil Dunphy - Modern Family

The self-proclaimed "cool dad" of Hayley, Alex and Luke, played by Ty Burrell, is a pro at finding new ways of embarrassing his kids. His failures at being cool and geeky charm, never fails to make us LOL!

Phil Banks - Fresh Prince of Bel-Air

Another Phil (James Avery) who is also one of our favourite TV Dads, Uncle Phil's short-temper and low tolerance for his nephew Will's (Will Smith) shenanigans, allows leads to a hilarious showdown. Uncle Phil also proves to be a huge softie when it comes to his kids and Will, who he treats like one of his own.

Hal - Malcolm in the Middle

Hal (Bryan Cranston) is one of the most iconic TV Dads. While he is the dad of five unruly boys, he may as well be one of the kids!

Cam and Mitch - Modern Family

The best of both worlds- these TV Dads balance each other out perfectly, combining silly with serious.

Tim "The Toolman" Taylor - Home Improvement

Tim Allen has played dad-roles before, but Tim Taylor has to be one of the best! That grunt was the sound of the 90's!

Homer Simpson - The Simpsons, Bob Belcher - Bob's Burgers, Peter Griffin - Family Guy

We can't forget our favourite cartoon dads this Father's Day! All three are pros at being both terrible people but have shining moments as dads.

Reginald "Red" Forman - That 70's Show

The perfect balance of tough love and good guy. Red (Kurtwood Smith) loved nothing more than calling his son Eric (Topher Grace) a dumbass!
