Also, Alan Thicke in Playgirl = win.

Bill Cosby should be on this list - he was one of my favorite TV Dads growing up :-)

Kind of funny, it it just me or did they make some of these people look older in the 80s, when they were 30 and 40 somethings playing TV dads?

That's what I was thinking too! :)

It is kind of freaky looking at them looking middle aged 25 years ago, and looking at them now when they really are middle aged.

30s through early 40s isn't quite middle aged these days, lol. Also I would buy a lot of them in TV father of thee TV kids now more than I would have back then. Heck, I think Ed O'Neil is playing one on The Middle.
