When it comes to TV dads, no one can surpass Danny Tanner for patience, compassion, or bedside heart-to-hearts. In honor of the passing of actor Bob Saget, here are our favorite Danny Tanner parenting moments.
#1. When He Gave Us The Perfect Advice
Specifically in the last season, when he reminded Stephanie’s friend’s mom, “Just remember when children seem the least lovable, it means they need love the most.”
#2. As A Dad-Coach To Jesse & Joey
Danny had help via his brother-in-law and best friend, but that meant teaching the two what parenthood is all about throughout the series.
#5. When DJ Was Struggling With Body Image
As he said to D: “On the inside, who a person is is far more important than how they appear on the outside.”
#6. When He Explained Dating After Loss
The girls were skeptical of their dad dating, but Danny compassionately explained that no one could ever replace their mom in Season 1.
#8. When He Showed His Unconditional Love
We all remember when he said, “No matter what you do wrong and how angry I get, I will always forgive you because I love you.”
#9. When He Helped The Girls Through Big Life Changes
Like when Michelle’s baby book was completed and she was scared of not being the baby anymore. (It’s a tough time!)
Even if he wasn't cool, he was still the best...
