The best cartoon dad and one of my favorite is Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz from Phineas and Ferb
Unlike most Dads where they’re, of course caring and loving to their child, give good advise, dorky jokes, cool and protective like
Greg Universe from Steven Universe
Hunson Abadeer from Adventure Time
Ice King/Simon Petrikov from Adventure Time
Rafael Diaz from Star vs The Forces of Evil
Tonraq from The Legend of Korra
What makes him stand out more to me is his backstories. Unlike the other dad’s I’ve mention, his is probably one of the most tragic stories I’ve ever heard.
His parents didn’t show up to his birth
His father force him to be the gnome when his gnome were all gone
Also been force to wear girls clothing for the his childhood so his younger brother could wear them
He was raised by Ocelot
Bested by his younger brother
His father name his dog “Only Son”… harsh
Also he hated Heinz for shaming the family when he couldn’t dive in the pool
He made his own surprise birthday party
You probably think that his tragic story should make a true villain? Nope, instead he becomes a real dork and fun villain to watch.
And instead of ignoring his family and take them for granted like any other villain would do, he actually tries to be a good dad to his daughter, Vanessa. Although he’s an ex-husband, doesn’t mean he’ll stop trying to support her daughter.
Like he set surprise birthday parties, even though she didn’t ask for them like a dorky father will do
He cheered her on first swimming team
Clapped the loudest on her school play
He taught her how to drive
Caught a fowl ball
And the best father moment is he didn’t stop to find a Mary McGuffen doll for the past 10 years for her
Heinz Doofenshmirtz is without a doubt, the best cartoon dad ever in all of cartoon shows. Although he considered himself a evil scientist, he’s a good man in my book
I always thought the new and original characters were the most broken characters like
Steven Quartz Unvierse has to live the fact that his mom, Rose Quartz, have commited some dark acts in the past
Star Butterfly lost almost everything in season 2
Marceline Abadeer lost her mother, her first and true friend, Simon lost his sanity for wearing the crown too much, and what’s worst that she has to become what she hates the most, a vampire
Ice King lost his sanity and forgotten everything he once knew himself
But probably the current most broken cartoon character out of all of them is Samurai Jack
What makes this man such a broken figure is he used to have a strong will that keep him moving, always had hope that he’ll find his way home, and always fight for justice. Even though it seem bad at first, but he finds another way, like he always had.
But now, after 50 years without aging alone, he lost himself in this forsaken time. He lost his honor as a samurai, lost his way to what to fight for and lost his faith to find his way back to the past
Every time portal is destroyed
He lost his sword, the only weapon that could defeat Aku
Really horrible PTSD
And what’s worst is he thinks of performing Harakiri (suicide)
Out of all cartoon characters in today world, I find Samurai Jack, the most broken out of all cartoon characters and deserve the most hugs
As Steven Universe, Star vs The Forces of Evil, Gravity Falls, Samurai Jack, Rick and Morty and Adventure Time is getting much praise for being great Cartoon shows, We Bare Bears deserve much praise as those shows. It’s not action pack or story driven like them but it’s still great to watch with tons of reasons why
1) It doesn’t have plot, but most of the ep. are really heartwarming, and great humor
and it can give the FEELZ
2) Each character are really well written, making them interesting, even the side-characters are entertaining.
Sure he looks like a dweeb, overweight, and doesn’t look interesting but he’s very kind-hearted and easy going. What makes him a very good character is he’s the one let the bears get back together again by getting himself arrested.
3) It’s really cute, especially the cub episodes!
4) I may have said that it doesn’t have a plot going on but it does have flashback episodes, or small bits of it that been added to a episode about them being cubs like “Yuri and the Bear”
5) It’s very realistic, I know there’s talking bears, a koala, and a Sasquatch but still very realistic like instead of Chloe being this an inventor like Phineas and Ferb or Dexter from Dexter Labatory, she’s just a ten-year-old prodigy
Out of all shows I’ve watched, as of right now, I find this show to be very charming, lighthearted, fun and actually funny to watch.
