Top 10 Worst Cartoon Fathers

Top terrible and awful cartoon fathers you would hate to have as your dad.
The Top Ten
1 Peter Griffin - Family Guy Peter Griffin is the main protagonist and titular character of the American animated sitcom Family Guy.

He is a bad father watch a couple modern episodes and you'll see what I mean. Although Homer does choke bart at times, doesn't care for his family at times, addicted to donuts and beer which causes him to neglect his family, he is a good father and cares for his children. Peter literally shot his daughter, Homer choking bart has nothing on that! Although Mr. Krabs definitely takes the cake as most annoying, (I don't really find Peter annoying.) Peter is way worse than him and when watching modern SpongeBob a while back I thought Mr. Krabs was the worst cartoon father until I saw this monstrosity! Also I bet Homer wouldn't shoot his kids or hide any injuries his children sustained from Marge!

2 Fire Lord Ozai - Avatar the Last Airbender

He's one of the most abusive, horrible fathers in all of fiction. He treated his son terribly, put a huge burn across his face, banished him and sent him to do something he thought was impossible, manipulated his daughter into becoming a psychopath and almost let her rule but didn't even love her, and that realization made her have a breakdown. Seriously, this guy was horrible.

He treated Zuko terribly, burned his son's face, banished him just for speaking up and sent him to do something he thought was impossible. He never loved Zuko and turned Azula into a monster. And because of him, Azula never understands the value of love and friendship which turned her mad. The worst father in the history of fathers.

3 Mr. Krabs - SpongeBob SquarePants Eugene H. Krabs, or simply Mr. Krabs, is a fictional character in the American animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants.

He ruined almost all of Pearls birthday party's because we wouldn't stop being cheap he cares more about money than about his own daughter, what a selfish jerk he even gave Pearl dead batteries for Christmas seriously who does that.

Krabs cares little for Pearl. Cares more about money. He ruins everything for Pearl.

His own worker did a better job at takin care of his daughter then he did himself

4 Cotton Hill - King of the Hill
5 Homer Simpson - The Simpsons Homer Jay Simpson is the main protagonist of the American animated television series The Simpsons as the patriarch of the eponymous family.

One of the dumbest, fattest, and drunkest fathers EVER.

6 Hugh Test - Johnny Test

The man is just too self-absorbed and pathetic to be a father.

7 Royce Lumpkin - The Simpsons
8 Greg Universe - Steven Universe Greg Universe is from the show Steven Universe created by Rebecca Sugar.

Greg Universe is the dad of the main character, Steven Universe. Greg is a human and lives in a van in the small boardwalk town, Beach City. Greg is usually seen with a white tank top on with shorts and flip flops on. In... read more

Greg isn't a bad dad, he's a great dad who loves Steven and supports him all the time

9 Hoyt Platter - King of the Hill

It's so sad the fact that Peggy and Hank have to lie to Luanne to keep her from learning the truth about her father being a jailbird and also Hoyt steals money from a cash register and then convinces Lucky to take the blame.

10 Jerry Smith - Rick and Morty
The Contenders
11 Mister Ruckus - The Boondocks

He viciously abuses Uncle Ruckus throughout his childhood.

He viciously abused Ruckus in earlier days.

12 Randy Marsh - South Park Randy Marsh is a fictional character in the animated television series South Park. He is the son of Marvin and Grandma Marsh, the half-brother of Jimbo Kern, the husband of Sharon, and the father of Stan and Shelly. He first appeared in the Season One episode, "Volcano", and is voiced by Trey Parker... read more

There are many bad things about him that describes him as an unlikeable and undesireable human being, mainly because he's the one person who has hurted his son the most. Also killed his own daughter's boyfriend for selfish and studiest reasons.

He doesn't think of his family at all and he is more selfish than homer simpsons and peter Griffin

I hate him he's so annoying ruined south park and is a terrible father pulled a gun on his own son

13 Lao Beifong - Avatar: The Last Airbender
14 Mr. Burns - The Simpsons Charles Montgomery Plantagenet Schicklgruber "Monty" Burns, usually referred to as Charles Montgomery Burns or simply Mr. Burns, is a recurring character in the animated television series The Simpsons, voiced initially by Christopher Collins, and currently by Harry Shearer.

If you think Mr. Burns can't any more crueler, there comes the fact that he has a son named Larry Burns (voiced by Rodney Dangerfield). He abandoned him as an infant. When Larry finally sees Burns at his gift shop kiosk in a desert road, all Larry wanted was his father to accept him as a son. It was a fools errand due to Mr. Burns thinking that Larry is an embarrassment to the family line.

The episode about Burn's heir, it really should've been Larry his son.

15 Le Var (Freight Train) Brown - The Cleveland Show

LeVar is a horrible father. He beats up Cleveland, cheats on Evelyn.

16 Francis Griffin - Family Guy

Actually he wasn't his real father but he still SUCKS with his closeminded antiProtestantism, and Lois is actually Jewish and all...

Burn in hell you raised peter griffin and we all know how he turned out

17 Richard Watterson - The Amazing World of Gumball Richard Watterson is the father of Gumball, Darwin, and Anais in the animated series The Amazing World of Gumball.
18 Frank Murphy - F Is For Family
19 Stephen Stotch - South Park

He grounds butters for no reason at all. It was very statisfying to see leopold 'buttes' stotch punch him.

Why Homer and Randy are much higher that Stephen?

He grounds Butters for the pettiest reasons.

20 Glenn Quagmire - Family Guy Glenn Quagmire, often referred to as just Quagmire, is a character from the animated television series Family Guy.

Peter may be one of the worst fathers in history but at least he sees his children.And all Quagmire does is get random women pregnant and leave them with no support.He never learns from his mistakes.And also keep in mind that he nicknamed his daughter ''Anal'' and wanted to do her once she turns 18 AND he put her up for adoption, because she was ruining his sex life.That's why he should've been on second place.

Quagmire has had sex with woman all over the world and probably has a whole lot of kids who he never sees, in one episode after he give up his daughter to a couple and says to Peter "who knows maybe I'll bump into her at 16" Peter says "What" and he response is "Come on Peter You don't think Iv'e changed that much" which indicates that he's planning to what ever he normally does to his own daughter.

21 Big Bob Pataki - Hey Arnold

He can never remember Helgas name and always favored Olga over her.

22 Mr. Turner - The Fairly Oddparents
23 Early Cuyler - Squidbillies

If you look up deadbeat abusive father in the dictionary, you'll see a picture of Early Cuyler from Squidbillies. He can't hold a job, he abuses the law and his family, and he only cares about himself.

Early might actually be worse than Peter Griffin.

24 Shredder - TMNT 2012

If you think Splinter is a bad father, then you forgotten about Oruku Saki, aka The Shredder. After causing the fire that killed Shen and caused grief to Hamato Yoshi, Saki then abducted a baby Karai and raised her to hate her true father. The truth is, Shredder does not love Karai, he just wants to use her to spite Splinter. Shredder is an inhuman monster that deserves to die by either the Turtles or Karai's hand.

Shredder was bad in 2012. But in 2003, he was worse. He raised Karai for even worse. He is post-apocalyptic. He made Karai try to kill Splinter.

25 Clay Puppington - Moral Orel

Um hello this man shot his son, mentally and physically abused him, made him lose faith in God. Even if he had a rough childhood his behavior is totally unnecessary and he should not have taken it out on old pure Orel. In my opinion he actually deserves to be higher up on the list.

He got drunk and shot his son, blamed him for it, didn't treat the wound, and acted like it wasn't his fault since he didn't remember doing it. Absolute scum.

Let's not forget that he shot his own son and frequently abuses him.
