The reason cartoon dads being dorky, slobs, boring or otherwise ineffectual is troublesome is due to the fact that idealized males are what should be in the media. It's like how there's no more sexy women in cartoons now.

    Just once I want to see a cartoon where the dad is an overly neurotic uptight always-right sage and the mom is the dorky, sporty, imbecilic slob barely capable of walking and breathing at the same time. Specifically a role reversal, not a "return to 1950s Father Knows Best, Mom is in the Kitchen", but the dad is literally a sagely dude on the verge of collapse from his wife's chaotic antics.

    Not because that's my ideal set up for a cartoon sitcom family, but just because I'm curious as to what sort of response it would get from ~~*certain reviewers*~~.
    Ideally they ought to see it as an interesting subversion of the typical sitcom set up, but I have a nasty feeling that instead it will get criticized completely unironically.

      Cinemaphile hates it, but the Loud House is literally this
      Lynn Sr is literally the male version of the typical neurotic sitcom mom and is probably the most capable Nickelodeon dad since Hugh Neutron (guy runs his own restaurant, pretty competently at that). Rita isn't explicitly too dumb to live, but she's not some wise all-knowing mom keeping her husband on a leash. Hell she even got arrested once. Their only fault is being too laissez faire with their kids (and coming down too hard on Lincoln specifically in the early seasons).
      If it wasn't for Savinogate and the fanbase being known only for pedo incest, I think the show would be beloved by critics for its parents.

    Cartoon dads being dorky slobs isn't explicitly because there's an agenda. If you ask men in real life, they adore these guys because they're fun. They're ugly dudes who scored banging wives and get to live their dream of being boyish at old age without the consequences (like CPS taking their kids away for even 1% of their antics)

    Seriously I agree with the other anon, you're trying to find a feminist agenda here but haven't thought it through. If feminists really wanted to demonize men in media, the last thing they'd do is popularize shows where literal fatass loser slobs who barely can put their pants on correctly win hot, thicc trophy wives, two and a half loving kids, and a big house in the suburbs.

          Cartoon dads were always a joke. Going as far back as the Jetsons and The Flintstones. And do you wanna know why? It's because there's nothing funny about a boring, competent dad, and a cartoon's job is to be entertaining.

          Glad I could clear that up for you. It is kinda subtle.

The TV industry didn’t want cozy, tightknit shows that took place in the Midwest anymore and replaced them with absolute filth that not only lowered expectations for TV but also made the entire country stupid as a result. The only dads who find people like Billy’s dad or Pete from Goof Troop are the ones who’d absolutely fold under a divorce and have no sense of balls.

                The bumbling dad stereotype is the main reason why daddy issues are so prevalent now. No good father role models result in kids hating their dads and seeing them as something they aren’t. Nobody wants a beer chugging, sports loving, 75 IQ moron as a father. Which is why very few of those exist in real life

      It’s true, people like Norman Lear shaped television into making white men look like racist jackasses while portraying black people as smart and witty. Mainly because he was a israelite. The dumb dad trope evolved from him, went further with Married with Children until finally reaching peak moron with the Simpsons. The image of dads in media hasn’t recovered since then and we’ve actually been using dumb dads in both cartoons and live action shows longer than the 50s “father knows best” type who was actually a positive role model.

      Pretty wide variety of dads here, a lot of whom are actually pretty cool within the story itself, or the main comedic relief. People remember Timmy's dad because he's funny. People remember Timmy's mom cuz she's got curves for days. Even though they're basically the same person.

        And this is why Mr. Cinemaphile is the better of the two board tournaments here.

    Shit, homie, wash your ass. My wiener smells like shit after our last shower encounter.
    Your b***hing during our sex about your dad raping you while your mother pleased all the other brothas on the block in the other room is only funny when you don't shit yourself.

        you must be confusing me with someone else, because i generally don't give a frick about cartoon dads.

        there's hundreds of cliches that i'm genuinely fixated on, that's not one of them.

    Spongebob's dad
    If anything, HE was the one wearing the pants in the relationship imo, I remember the mom being more clumsy and stuff
    >Membrane
    He's a literal scientist, how is he dumb or goofy?
    >Cow and Chicken's dad
    >Timmy's dad
    >Danny's dad
    Doesn't really count, the moms are just as crazy and dumb
    >Phin and Ferb's dad
    Again, not dumb, just eccentric, but then again Linda was too

    I get everyone here is tired of the "dumb dad, nagging wife" trope but a fair bit of these don't even really apply. I want to know what people on here think are good cartoon parents.
