* Kent Mansley from ''TheIronGiant'' was designed to resemble this, and could be considered a deconstruction. He was even voiced by Christopher [=McDonald=], who played Ward Cleaver in the 90s ''Leave it to Beaver'' movie.

* Mr. Fantastic has played a Standard Fifties Father pretty straight since his conception (Although ''ComicBook/FantasticFour'' #1 was released in 1961.) and after marrying his college-sweetheart. "Wives should be kissed and not heard!" indeed. Modern interpretations make him more subtly--and egalitarianly--condescending. So while his archnemisis is mocked for being medieval, he is merely Rockwellian.

The Standard '50s Father is solid, dependable, and responsible. He's HappilyMarried to his wife, whom he met [[HighSchoolSweethearts when they were both teenagers]]. And if the love he gives his children is slightly distant, it is no less heartfelt for being so. He's an upstanding citizen who rarely swears or drinks to excess, [[GoodSmokingEvilSmoking if he smokes he]] [[DistinguishedGentlemansPipe smokes a pipe]], and attends a regular "bowling night" with his friends ("darts" if British). If he plays cards it will be bridge, probably in partnership with his wife, ''not'' poker in a dingy room full of cigar smoke. He wears a shirt and tie with dress pants and a cardigan during the day (even while he cuts the lawn on Saturday morning) and sleeps in sensible cotton pajamas. He usually wears glasses. He's buttoned-down, calm, wise, and thoughtful. None but a few things can rattle him: 1.) [[OverprotectiveDad His daughter getting a boyfriend]], 2.) [[PanickyExpectantFather His wife revealing that she's going to have a baby (and her later going in labor)]], 3.) His wife deciding that she wants a job (assuming that it's her idea and not his), or 4.) The threat of losing ''his'' job (combining 3 and 4 could send him into open hysterics).

** Played with: at first, Mr. Egbert appears to be one of these -- a caring, pipe-smoking, hat-wearing, sensible man -- albeit with a bizarre passion for harlequins that convinces his son John that the elder Egbert is a street performer. And then it turns out that he's secretly a.) [[spoiler:a perfectly ordinary businessman whose apparent harlequin fixation is in fact an attempt to support John's [[{{Brainwashing}} chucklevoodoo-induced]][[TomatoInTheMirror love of clowns]]]] and b.) [[spoiler:a superhumanly strong, MadeOfIron PapaWolf capable of taking out enormous monsters with his bare hands. And he's also John's half-brother via cloning. It's complicated.]]
