* Larry the crocodile from ''PearlsBeforeSwine''. He is [[TheDitz completely idiotic]], even compared to the rest of Zeeba Zeeba Eata, and he is quite an [[TheAlcoholic Alcoholic]]. Once he didn't even bother to rescue his wife, Patty, when Zebra kidnapped her, and they only got her back when Zebra realized he was only hurting their son Junior.

* Pop of ''HappyTreeFriends''. It's usually fatal for Cub when he's DistractedByTheShiny. He means well, but he doesn't exactly live in a world which pities mistakes or oversights. (Or seemingly safe and sensible decisions for that matter.)

* Omakes in ''Manga/TokyoGhoul [=:Re=]'' reveal Yoshitoki Washuu to be one to his AntagonisticOffspring, Matsuri. His various attempts at family bonding fail miserably, primarily because of how completely different [[TokenGoodTeammate father]] and [[LackOfEmpathy son]] are in personality and [[JockDadNerdSon interests]].

* Dagwood Bumstead on ''ComicStrip/{{Blondie}}'' ranges between a StandardFiftiesFather and this. Justified by his IdleRich background-- he never learned to do most of the things required of him as a working-class father.

* Roger Fox from ''FoxTrot''. In one strip, he managed to burn his silhouette onto the wall trying to light the furnace. In another, even more ridiculous strip, Roger flooded the house when he tried to use the ''dishwasher'', and that was while Andy was out of town.

* In ''RanmaOneHalf'', both Soun Tendo and Genma Saotome were often {{Bumbling Dad}}s more typical of the American form of the trope than the Japanese style (as opposed to the {{egregious}} Principal Kuno in the same series, who was very much in the Japanese mold despite his obsession with Hawaii). This was even more pronounced for those times when they ''did'' act like the competent martial artists they were supposed to be.

more damn tidying
* In ''Series/EverbodyLovesRaymond'', there is Frank Barone, a blustering uberboor with no concept of sensitivity or restraint who embodies this trope: his husbanding skills to Marie are non-existent, and his concept of bringing up sons involved intimidation and lots of shouting combined with insult and rough treatment. all for their own good, naturally. His sense of personal hygeine is hazy and he is a voracious glutton as well as an exemplar of DoomItYourself.
