* Ed Avery from ''Film/BiggerThanLife'' provides page image. Interestingly, he's a subversion, as he develops severe physical and mental health problems.

Husband to the HouseWife. Father to the GirlNextDoor and TheAllAmericanBoy.

Husband to the HouseWife. Father to the GirlNextDoor and TheAllAmericanBoy.
TheAllAmericanBoy. Contrast BumblingDad and AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents, two tropes created as a direct subversion to this one.

** He returns in ''Go Set a Watchman'' as a darker version of this trope.


Added DiffLines:

** Sometimes, Ren himself would also take on this trope, wearing glasses, a red robe, and slippers, smoking a pipe, and reading a newspaper countless times. Stimpy, his parter, would also treat him as a {{HouseWife}} would her husband. This is most apparent when he gets a son in the episode "Fake Dad".

** Deconstructed with regards to Bojack's maternal grandfather Joseph Sugarman, who [[spoiler:got his wife Honey a lobotomy because he couldn't handle her grief over their son's death in World War 2 and then threatened his daughter Beatrice (Bojack's mother) with one of her own if she didn't keep her emotions in check]].

* Mr. Young in ''Literature/GoodOmens''.

to:

* Mr. Young in ''Literature/GoodOmens''.''Literature/GoodOmens'' is pretty much the Platonic ideal of this kind of character. He's so serious minded that in the finale [[spoiler: his mere arrival on the scene is enough to dispel Satan]].

* Atticus Finch from ToKillAMockingbird may be the quintessential example. He's a lawyer from a small, Southern town who is willing to uphold due process when a black man is accused of raping a white woman. He stoically endures being spit in the face by his enemies and ''definitely'' imparts wise lessons to his children.

* During one episode of ''WesternAnimation/RenAndStimpy'', Ren and Stimpy pretend to be babies for a while. The father featured in this episode was a Mister Cleaver. The father's appeared before: he's the slightly [[{{Gasshole}} flatulent]] guy [[TheFaceless depicted by two black-sock-and-garter-clad legs and a meerschaum-style pipe hanging down onscreen]].
