Cliff Huxtable 1 of 6Oh, I know Cliff was a beloved TV dad, but he always seemed to be laughing at the kids, not with them. And implying that there were a huge pain. Which they probably were, but what kid wants to hear that? And don't get me started on his sweaters. Get it from Amazon $39.49
Mike Brady 2 of 6Thanks for designing a house with one bathroom, architect dad!

Archie Bunker 3 of 6The bigot dad who called adult Gloria "little girl." I'm surprised Hallmark hasn't come out with a "thanks for being less of a bigot than Archie Bunker, Dad!" line of Father's Day cards.

George Jefferson 4 of 6I'm sorry, if I lived with father who slammed the door shut as often as George Jefferson did, my nerves would be shot.

Tom Bradford 5 of 6I loved Eight is Enough but thought it was weird that Tom never mentioned the children's mother, who apparently died between seasons 1 and 2. Plus he remarried in season 2. And he married Abby who was only slightly older than Tom's oldest daughter.
