As you know, Father's Day is this Sunday, and as a dad, I'm looking forward to a relaxing day (glad I mowed the lawn Wednesday night). I'm sure that we'll all be honoring dads one way or another, and there are some famous dads that many of us know. I thought it might be fun to remember some of the famous animated dads from cartoons and animated films.

Here goes...my list of famous animated dads:

1. Doggy  Daddy (Augie Doggy's Dad)

2. Sylvester the Cat (His son is named Junior and is a spitting image of dad.)

3. Gepetto (the carpenter who created the puppet Pinochio, who later became a real boy and Gepetto's son).

4. Donald Duck (No, he was only an uncle to Huey, Dewey & Louie, but let's honor him anyway).

5. Fred Flinstone

6. George Jetson

and the one and only Homer Simpson!

My favorite animated dad is Doggy Daddy, because he sounds like comedian Jimmy Durante...ha-cha-cha!
