Homer Simpson Voted Fave Dad

film reviews | movies | features | BRWC Homer Simpson Voted Fave Dad

GetPaidTo – the new cashback and rewards website – has revealed the nation’s favourite fictional TV dad is Homer Simpson of America’s longest-running animated programme The Simpsons.

In the run up to Father’s Day this year, GetPaidTo asked 1,000 Brits to vote for their favourite onscreen father figure. Even with recent whispers of a potential Homer and Marge split, the beer and doughnut loving Homer Simpson was by far the most popular dad – with almost one in five people naming him as their favourite.

What the Deuce vs. Eat my Shorts



When it comes to much loved and somewhat controversial American cartoons, The Simpsons and Family Guy are two of the most popular, but it seems Homer’s once again pipped Peter to the post. Still reeling from his court case loss in the much anticipated Family Guy Simpsons crossover episode, Peter came in third place with just one in ten Brits naming him as their favourite fictional dad. Jim Royale of BBC’s The Royale Family managed to squeeze in just ahead of Peter receiving 11% of the votes.

Top 10 fictional dads

  1. Homer Simpson, The Simpsons (19%)
  2. Jim Royale, The Royale Family (11%)
  3. Peter Griffin, Family Guy (10%)
  4. Arthur Weasley, Harry Potter (9%)
  5. Mufasa, The Lion King (8%)
  6. Uncle Phil, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air (7%)
  7. Walter White, Breaking Bad (7%)

  9. Rick Grimes, Walking Dead (5%)
  10. Phil Dunphy, Modern Family (4%)

Daddy’s girls and boys

There was also a stark contrast between daddy’s girls and boys. While Homer Simpson proved to be the most popular dad amongst men surveyed (grabbing 23% of the male vote), women preferred the softer approach to parenting from Harry Potter’s Arthur Weasley (with 13% of the female vote).
