10 Daddy Bear Favorites for Father’s Day

With Father’s Day this Sunday, naturally we are thinking of all things daddy. And what better way to celebrate the occasion than to list out some of our favorite fictional daddies from when we were growing up in the 80′ and 90’s! But, no matter what decade you grew up in, we are sure you have a few Daddies in mind that made you sit up and take notice. It’s kind of a gay bear right of passage.

Even to this day there’s something about a big, burly and funny man that makes all us all weak in the knees. It’s that intoxicating blend of masculinity and that feeling of security that many of us love about bears, plus a good sense of humor is just hot, no sense denying it. And for us millennial babies, there was a decided bend towards plaid and flannel in our sitcom daddies for some reason which is like catnip for us, or perhaps -bear-nip! (I’m looking at you Dan Conner and Al Borland.)

For our list of daddies we expanded the search beyond sitcoms of course, including some hunky daddies we loved from the worlds of wrestling and the movies. Frankly it was hard to stop at just ten but that always leaves room for another list because honestly we love daddies all day everyday, not just on the second Sunday of June.

So without further ado, we present ten of our very favorite daddy bears for your review and enjoyment. And we want to hear from you too! Did we miss your favorite Daddy Bear? Did we hit the nail on the head for you? Tell us in the comments and we’ll add them in for next Father’s Day!
