Homer. I agree about it being a crime that Hal was left out. He's the one part of MITM I think has gotten better rather than worse over the years.

Malcom in the Middle sucks.  Frankie Muniz sucks.  When it first aired, it replaced Futurama for Sundays at 8:30.  That was a good time for Futurama.  And MITM is a rip-off of MWC.

Also, for Brady fans, I didn't put Mike Brady, because the Bradys suck as well.

Because you touch yourself at night.

Despite the Family Guy quote, I'm voting for Homer.  smile

I say Ozzy. He's a batty old coot and he really loves his family, nomatter how annoying they are.
I just dunno about Archie Bunker.. say what you want about All in the Family, but I wouldn't want to live in the same TOWN as that guy, much less the same house.

EL, when he says "Jerkass Homer", he's not refering to the dumb Homer we all know and love. He's refering to Mike Scully's version of Homer who gets raped by pandas and crashes cars through windows.

Good point, but that scene was actually funny.

Of course, as I've said in many a thread, I think Jean has pretty much fixed Homer. He's just about back to being the well meaning and funny character he was.

From Eegah! on MST3K:

Joel (holding Jiffy-Pop over a hot plate): Mmm-mmm-mmm-mmm. This is gonna be good. You know it's as much fun to make as it is to eat.

Crow: Well I hope it tastes good, because the 'as much fun to make' part just isn't happening for me.

Servo: Uh, say Joel, I've got a question about today's experiment.

Joel: Mmm-hmm?

Servo: You know that Roxy chick hangs out with her dad alot, but where's her mom?

Joel: Oh, well I'm sure dad's a widower.

Crow: How do you know he wasn't divorced?

Joel: Well, because the movie took place in the 60's, and back then divorce was considered socially unacceptable and so the entertainment industry's elegant solution was the untimely death of a spouse.

Servo: You know you're right, Joel? You know, now that I think of it, the families on TV back then were mostly run by widowers. Huh. Think of it, guys: The Andy Griffith Show, Mayberry RFD, Courtship of Eddie's Father, oh, My Three Sons, Flipper, The Beverly Hillbillies! The list goes on and on!

Crow: Yeah, the only normal family back then was The Munsters....

Joel: Yeah.

Servo: Hehe. So what happened to all those spouses on all those 60's shows? I mean, geez, back then marrying a good natured, suburban guy with cute, precocious kids was like buying a one-way ticket to an early grave!

Joel: Right, well I know on My Three Sons, Steve Douglas' wife's untimely death had something to do with Secret Project X-15! Yeah.

Servo: Oh. So how 'bout Uncle Charlie? Did he have a dead wife?

Joel: Oh.

Crow: Oh, well he was secretly married to Bub, who died under mysterious circumstances that were hushed-up by the government.

Joel: Now you're making stuff up.

Crow: Just push the corn.

Servo: Oh, what about Mr. Eddie's Father's wife? Wha happa?

Joel: Oh, you mean umm, Mrs. Livingston?

Servo: Yeah.

Joel: She tragically died leaving the Earth's atmosphere running away with My Favorite Martian. It's sad, really.

Crow: Oh, now you're making stuff up.

Joel: Yeah I am.

Crow: When you come right down to it, what we're really talking about here, guys, is a cheap plot device that enables young, swinging bachelors to mix it up with a hot, young lady and still have adorable kids that they can dispense folksy, homespun advice to.

Joel: Yeah, I guess it was all pretty harmless.

Servo: Now wait a minute! What do you mean, harmless? An entire generation grew up watching shows run by single parents. No wonder the nuclear family has exploded in recent years.

Crow: Hey, I just thought of somethin'! We don't have a mom, either!

Servo: Well hey, yeah! We're latch-key bots! Oh....

Joel: C'mon, you guys. Gimme a break, c'mon. I'm stranded in space. And besides, when I was a kid I saw the ABC movie of the week with Herschel Bernardi, "But I Don't Want to Get Married"; it had a profound effect on me!

Crow: Well don't worry, Joel. We both know we have alot to be grateful for. We have you, we have Gypsy, Cambot, Magic Voice, but most importantly, we have lots and lots of love. And that's something you just don't get in a two-parent household!

Joel (feeling hot plate): This thing wasn't even on.

Servo: D'oh!

Joel: We'll be right back.

Action.. I love you. You're the only other person I can think of who thought that scene was pure genius. [I don't get it! So many of my friends skip that scene! I need new friends is what.]

Happy belated Father's Day, I guess...

Anyway, I voted Homer. There has never been a better symbol of American fatherhood than he. Yeah, I know, you're probably thinking: "Cosby! Cosby! Cosby!". But, get with the program. No dad is perfect, and Homer represents that. He tries to be a good dad (well, at least pre- and post- Scully's era), and even though he usually fails miserably, he's still a great guy.

Al Bundy is hilarious.

I saw the episode where he takes his shirt off and threatens to show up Bud's school and Kelly's job in his underpants and say he's their father.  Then he'd go to Peg's salon w/o underpants and then he'd tell everybody that Charlene Tilton's adominzator didn't work on him, unless they gave him his retirement money.

They way he said all that was funny.   laff

What's kind of pathetic is that even though Homer is animated, he's a far more realistic and likeable father figure then anyone else there (with the possible exception of Archie Bunker.  I've never seen that show, which is a shame as I'd probably like it). 

So Homer easily.
