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.

Peter Griffin is the worst on this list. He hates his kids, abuses his kids, cheats on his wife. Is a murdering psychopath. Is a huge alcholoic. He will never be redeemed.

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!

I would hate to have a father like Peter Griffin. He neglects his children and wants to pretend they don't exist. In Seasons 1-5 he was stupid but still loved his kids even when they drove him nuts. Nowadays he abuses his kids and treats them like punching bags. In the season 12 episode "Peter Problems", Peter discovers his kids are being cooked and sees raw chickens sitting at his table, and says "You know Peter, you tried hard, and you still earned that wine". Talk about child neglect am I right?

Peter is perhaps the worst father in cartoon history, unlike Homer Simpson who actually loves and cares for his children even when they drive him nuts Peter treats his kids like dirt in one episode where Stewie suffers a concussion and Meg and Chris try to hide it but Peter knew the whole time but said nothing and his solution for the problem was throwing Stewie under the Car and passing the blame on Lois, he even admitted he hated spending time with his own kids.

2 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

He was too selfish to care for his child

3 Fire Lord Ozai - Avatar the Last Airbender

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.

Dude, he banished and/or killed his wife after she made sure to save Zuko from death from Ozai himself, burned his own son's face after he refused to fight him, banished said son and rid him of his 'honor' until he brought the Avatar to him, raised his psychopathic daughter and almost made her Fire Lord, commited genocide of the Airbenders just so the Avatar wouldn't stop him, and basically tried to rule the entire world and make it all completely Fire Nation... I think we know who deserves "Worst Father of the Year" Award.

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.

4 Cotton Hill - King of the Hill

He’s so annoying.

5 Royce Lumpkin - The Simpsons
6 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.

7 Mister Ruckus - The Boondocks

He viciously abuses Uncle Ruckus throughout his childhood.

He viciously abused Ruckus in earlier days.

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

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

9 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...

10 Frank Murphy - F Is For Family

The Newcomers

He has many abilities like, super strength, utilization of ki, flight, teleportation, super speed, enhanced reflexes, and Super Saiyan transformation that increase strength, speed, and durability. more.

11 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.

12 Big Bob Pataki - Hey Arnold

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

He forgets who Helga is.

13 Hugh Test - Johnny Test

He's a killjoy for no reason!

He likes mr scotch from South Park
And for some reason he’s obsessed with meatloaf and for some reason he’s obsessed with meatloaf petting meatloaf and cooking meatloaf sure meatloaf is tasty but he’s addicted to it

14 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.

15 Gabriel Agreste (Miraculous Ladybug)

It's a good thing you know that he is one of the worst father in cartoon history. He yeets his own son for his personal gain just to revive his wife back. Couldn't he just move on with Natalie? I mean he is also Hawk Moth. Hawk Moth is trying to steal 2 teenagers' jewelry just to save his wife from dying. Just ridiculous, utterly ridiculous! Imma just insert the whole Chat Blanc episode. Miraculers, you know what I mean.

16 Randy Marsh - South Park

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

17 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.

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

18 Mr. Turner - The Fairly Oddparents

So dumb that he's a bad Dad.

Worst cartoon dad ever!

A Big dimwit. He is so retarted.

19 Jonas Venture Sr. - The Venture Bros
20 Shou Tucker - FullMetal Alchemist Shou Tucker is a fictional character from the Fullmetal Alchemist manga series and its adaptations created by Hiromu Arakawa.

This guy is the absolute worst

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

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.

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.

22 Brian Griffin - Family Guy Brian H. Griffin, popularly known without his middle initial as Brian Griffin, is a fictional character from the animated television series Family Guy.

One Brian is a dog 2 he didn't KNOW he had a son and when he thought he was having kids in screwed the pooch he almost got neutered for them (although in stewie is enceite it was funny 'now brian do you have any questions for the doctor' 'yeah are there a lot of stairs in this building"

Brian is cruel to Dylan and was never caring at all.

Rest in hell you stupid dog

23 Hank Hill - King of the Hill Hank Rutherford Hill is a fictional character and the main protagonist on the animated television series King of the Hill.

Loves his lawn and propane more than his own family. Treats his friends like garbage. He also has some Major anger issues, and was once sent to an anger management class. He also wouldn't let his son do many good things, like in Reborn to be Wild, when Bobby was hooked up on bad influences, his Dad made him join a youth group. When his dad found out that the Christian group was exactly like what Bobby was into before the youth group, he wanted him to leave the group, and had to drag Bobby back home, while he was performing onstage with Pastor K, who completely forgot about no. 5 and his dad made him look like a baby in the show.

Hank is a good dad he's a little tough on Bobby but he loves Bobby

He don't suck, he cares about his family

24 Homer Simpson - The Simpsons Homer Jay Simpson is the protagonist of the American animated television series The Simpsons as the patriarch of the eponymous family.

Homer is just an unredemable cruel father. he strangles his son, humiliates his son on live action televsion and is gluttonose over doughnuts. he's drunk wich is a normal cause of divorce in real life.and even stangled a man his age.

25 Shredder - TMNT 2012

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.

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.

Cool villian, terrible father.
