Even though Frank Costanza didn't appear in many episodes of Seinfeld, he deserves his spot on this list for being one of the most original dads on television. Whether he was inventing holidays or designing male breast-holders, Costanza always left us laughing and happy we didn't actually know him.
Yeah, Walter's made a few mistakes, but who among us can honestly say hasn't given his cerebral palsy-struck son too many tequila shots, or gotten his name wrong, or embezzled drug money through his cancer charity website? Regardless, it takes a lot of courage to become a meth cook to get your son through college. Walter White isn't father of the year, but no-one question his dedication.
Jay Pritchett isn't just a father: he's an old-school, football tossing, model airplane-making, nostalgia-evoking, semi-emotionally-available dad. We love you, Jay Pritchett
Listen, we're not going to pretend Frank is a good father. Or a good husband. Or a good human being. But you know what he is? He's a completely unhinged, loose-cannon, ex-millionaire hedonist who drinks wine out of a soda can and eats dog food for dinner. So.
As that old saying goes: The dad so nice, he named his sporting goods store after his offspring.
