* Hugh and Jean ([[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Taz]]'s parents) from ''TazMania'' are such loving parents to their 3 children. Several people would have abandoned Taz, but these two? They are '''''very''''' tolerant of their son's crazy antics and stick by him, no matter what.

* ''Series/That70sShow'': Red and Kitty Forman are mostly like this, despite one being a grumpy hardass and the other being more than a little neurotic. Kitty's emotional support has proven essential to allowing Eric to survive being Red's son, and has also led her to provide support for Eric's friends. Red might seem harsh and strict, but dealing with it leads Eric to become a stronger person for it, especially since Red only really punishes Eric when he's actually done something to deserve it. The one time Eric didn't deserve to be punished (when he took the blame for Donna smoking cigarettes) he apologized for not believing him and making him smoke an entire carton.

They aren't just this to Eric, but they are also like this to his friends, acting as surrogate parents, especially to Hyde. They're probably the best parents out of anyone in the series.

* Music/RobbieWilliams portrays himself this way in his song 'Go Gentle', which is a song to his daughter warning her about the kind of guys she'll probably meet in her life. He noticeably manages to avert the OverprotectiveDad trope, in that he does encourage her to find love; just to be careful about who it is she picks.
-->''And when you go giving your heart,\\
Make sure they deserve it.\\
If they haven't earned it,\\
Keep searching, it's worth it.''
* Music/KanyeWest has a song called "Hey Mama," dedicated to his mother and how good she was to him.
* ''Music/Ashanti'' has a song called "Mother." She sings about her mother and how she thanks her for being wonderful to her.

* Most of the parents of Team Kimba in the WhateleyUniverse. Chaka's and Tennyo's familes. Lancer's dad and Generator's mom. Fey's parents were separated, but having a son become a [[GenderBender female]] mutant [[TheFairFolk Faerie]] seems to be bringing them back together. Even Phase's parents were loving... right up to the second he manifested as a mutant and things went wrong.

* Finn and Jake's parents in ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime''. Not only did they adopt the human Finn as their child and raise him equal to their own, they grew up to be the greatest heroes of the land of Ooo. Jake even shows that he'll raise his pups just like how his parents raised him, in one of the series [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming absolute most adorable, d'awe inducing scenes]]. "Joshua and Margaret Investigates" takes it even further with TheReveal that [[spoiler:they lovingly raised Jake as their son despite his [[FaceFullOfAlienWingWong bizarre origin]].]]

* Leela's parents on ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' fit the bill, despite [[ParentalAbandonment having abandoned her]] - technically - after she was born. As revealed in "Leela's Homeworld", both were mutants living in the sewers, and when Leela was born with no mutations other than a single eye, they wanted her to have a better life than what she could have there. But they were always close - a flashback montage at the end of the episode [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming shows how they covertly helped her and watched over her all along.]] (Even Bender is touched.)

* Vernon and Petunia Dursley become this in ''Fanfic/ABetterMan''.



* Michael and Carolyn Lestrade in ''Fanfic/ChildrenOfTime''. Michael is not always around for his kids due to being a detective on the other side of the Atlantic, but he certainly had time to instill and cultivate a Sherlockian obsession in his eldest two children. Michael and Carolyn are still HappilyMarried with several children when their twenty-five-year-old daughter, Beth, can finally introduce them to her husband. Michael's first meeting with said husband, none other than Literature/SherlockHolmes, turns out to be far less painful than Sherlock had anticipated, and much more fond.
* In the original Fanfic/DantesNightAtFreddys, Lucia is depicted as the better parent towards her and Dante's children, while Dante himself comes across as selfish and easily annoyed. However, when their daughter is dragged into the events of the sequel, ''Animatronic Boogaloo'', Dante shows off a lot of PapaWolf tendencies and that trying to hurt his kids is his most extreme BerserkButton.



* Elrond has been often portrayed as a loving father for all four of his children, including his adopted son Aragorn, as seen in such stories like [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/1179397/1/An-Eye-For-An-Eye An Eye For An Eye]] and [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2626518/1/Healing-Hope Healing Hope]].

* Mrs. Potts in ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast.'' .



* Pixar's ''WesternAnimation/{{Brave}}'' has King Fergus and Queen Elinor (who falls into MyBelovedSmother territory, but genuinely loves and cares for her children).
* In Disney's ''Disney/{{Cinderella}}'', it's implied that Cinderella's father was this, [[DeceasedParentsAreTheBest before he died]].



* Pacha and Chicha on ''Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove'', and the spin-off series ''WesternAnimation/TheEmperorsNewSchool''.
* Anna and Elsa's parents from ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' do their very best to protect their daughters and get Elsa to control her powers until they tragically die in a storm. Mistakes are made, catastrophic ones, but every decision is made out of honest concern for their children's well being.
* In Creator/{{Disney}}'s ''Disney/{{Hercules}}'', thanks to AdaptationalHeroism, both Hera and Zeus are affectionate parents to their son, Hercules.
* In ''Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame'', there's Quasimodo's biological mother at the beginning. Her appearance is very brief [[spoiler: since she gets killed by Frollo in the prologue]] but the way she's running from soldiers with the little helpless baby in her hands, while never giving up despite her chances of escape being hopeless, is certainly what a good parent would do.
* Bob and Helen Parr in ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles.'' Bob may struggle with ParentalObliviousness sometimes, but definitely by the end he gets it. Helen, in a [[WhatCouldHaveBeen deleted scene,]] even talks about how being a good and loving parent can be ''just'' as important as superheroing when it comes to making the world a better place. Rock on.
* Mufasa in ''Disney/TheLionKing'' is one of, if not THE best, fathers in any film, as he is wise, humorous, stern when necessary, protective, and royal. This is part of the reason his death is such a well-known TearJerker. Even after his death, he continues to guide his son in spirit.
** Although she doesn't get as much focus as Mufasa, Sarabi is also shown to be a very loving mother. When Simba sees Scar smack her near the end, he loses his temper.
