FRESH PRINCE OF BELL-AIR
Stepping in as Will’s father figure, Uncle Phil used a whole lot of tough love to get through to his outspoken nephew. At the end of the day, he always treated Will as one of his own. Major proof that family isn’t limited to DNA.
With his goofy persona, witty banter, and obsession with being the “cool dad”, this funny man is the doting father and loving husband who never fails to put his family first.

Danny Tanner, Uncle Jesse, Uncle Joey
When the going got tough, our favorite trio was always there to help. From Joey’s endless lines of jokes to Uncle Jesse’s flawless Elvis impersonation, their incomparable guidance inspired us all.

The manly, yet goofy dad may have spent the majority of his time joking around, and fixing up cars, but the occasional wisdom he passed down to his boys was just one of the things that made him such a lovable dad.

Neighbor, teacher, life coach, and friend. The list goes on and on! Mr. Feeny was always there to guide our favorite gang (and answer to the infamous Feeny-call) with solid wisdom and support.
