30 of TV’s Best Father Figures Who Weren’t Actually Dads, From Mr. Belvedere to Joey Gladstone (Photos)
In honor of Father's Day, TheWrap recognizes non-parent TV father characters, from Mr. Feeney in "Boy Meets World" to Mr. Carson in "Downton Abbey" to Mr. Belvedere of the same name and Chief Hopper in "Stranger Things".
Some examples to start with:
Mr. Feeny (William Daniels), "Boy Meets World"
Matthews' neighbor was also Corys (Ben Savage) teacher and eventually his headmaster, who gave him smart advice during his young life. He will probably still be in the sequel "Girl Meets World".
Joey Gladstone (Dave Coulier), "Full House"
Uncle Joey had his dolls and nieces, but no children. Nevertheless, he played an essential role in the education of Danny girls (Bob Saget). Uncle Jesse (John Stamos) would have made this list, but he ended up having his own twins.
Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) on "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."
Coulson selected his own team by hand and filled it with broken people who needed support, guidance and guidance. No wonder he is a father figure for so many of them and especially for the orphaned Skye (Chloe Bennet).
Mr. Dink (Fred Newman), "Doug"
Doug's (Billy West / Tom McHugh) older, eccentric neighbor was as quick with a bizarre high-tech device as with words of wisdom for the young man. Unfortunately, sometimes both turned out to be of little use.
Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), "The Flash"
When Barry Allen's (Grant Gustin) mother was murdered and his father was wrongly convicted of her murder, he was taken in by a family friend, police officer Joe West. Joe proved to be a dedicated foster father and even inspired young Barry to become a forensic scientist. And after the accident that gave Barry his powers, Joe was his first friend to learn about the secret and serves as one of The Flash's strongest allies. And now that Barry is married to Joe's daughter Iris, he's not only a great foster father, he's also a great father-in-law.
