They don't have to be together.  You can take a mom and dad from different shows.  Cartoons count.

 

The best dad was either Jack Arnold from the Wonder Years or Dr. Seaver from Growing Pains....Al Bundy I think I can lump in that discussion too. 

The best mom was either Marge Simpson from the Simpsons or Kitty Foreman from That 70's Show.

Kitty Foreman, with props to Midge for just being the hot neighbor.
Homer Simpson or Peter Griffin. Funniest dads of all time, imo.

The people from Family Ties, with Michael J Fox. The Keatons. Those people were solid parents, I remember wishing i had good parents like them.

I always thought the Cunninghams from Happy Days were good parents.

I got here too late, but it would be hard to beat Laura Pertrie! And then.....some guy...... Rob is fine, but I might have had to knock him off to get a shot at comforting a grieving Laura. :)


Probably not the dad from That '70's Show.
