The Brady Bunch
Played by Robert Reed
He got a perm, which permanently cemented his position on this list. But Mike Brady was also committed to making his blended family work out in the early 1970s, at a time when real blended families needed some reassurance. An architect, he was ethical and lucid, but never sanctimonious. And unlike many TV dads, he actually seemed to like being around his kids.
