* ''Series/VeranoAzul'' has the local {{Meganekko}}'s father dropping by during summer vacation. As it's a Spanish series from TheEighties, coming right after the very conervative Franco dicratorship, merely speaking on-screen about divorce was ''revolutionary'' back then.

* After [[DaddyDidntShow not coming to a family pinic]] in the Nick run of "WesternAnimation/{{Doug}}", we finally meet Roger's father in the Disney run episode "Doug's Movie Madness". Despite what's implied about him before,he proves to be a good, if not better parent than others. When all the children want to see an R-rated movie. Doug's parents use trailers and reviews that can lie to a viewer, to make their choice to not let Doug see it. When Roger asks his dad to see it, he says he'll have to watch it first to jugde it fully and ends up walking out half-way in since in this case the trailers actually kept a lot of the bloodier parts out. He tells Roger this who still doesn't understand. Later on, all the kids told no go to see it anyway and Roger's father is the only parent who catches their kid doing this, physically takes Roger from the movie and has a better, gentle, talk with him about it. Doug's parents dont find out until after and while Roger learned that sometimes parents do know what they're talking about and a better understanding of his dad, all Doug learned was that he got nightmares, and grounded without fully understanding why his parents did it in the first place. The other kids never even get caught.

* The film DriveMeCrazy has Melissa Joan Hart's father visit her and take her on a hot-air balloon ride to bond. While up in the air, he gives her the book "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance" to better understand him. She replies "This stupid book is supposed to explain why you're never around?" and flings it over the edge. RogerEbert wrote in his review of the film that he cheered at this part.

* ''ComicBook/{{Jonesy}}'': Inverted, the title character's mother is the one who's usually away while Jonesy lives with her father and she eventually comes to visit in the 7th issue. Jonesy isn't too thrilled at this due to thinking that her mother left them and it comes to a head near the end of the issue. However her mother reveals that that wasn't the case, the two separated due to marrying young and growing apart as they go older. Jonesy's father was the one who volunteered to look after her while her mother went to the city to study to be a lawyer. But never stopped loving her and comes visit when she can, even going out of her way to get a apartment with a spare room so Jonesy could have some place to sleep when she visited her in the city.
