Introduction

Throughout history, fathers have been looked to for strength, support and security. More than ever in today's turbulent and ever-changing world, we continue to reach out to our fathers as anchors.

The role of the father in the family structure is important and unique. Fathers are called upon to be husbands, providers, teachers and disciplinarians. They often manage to do all this while also acting as role models and friends to their children.

With this collection of cartoons, we seek to pay a humorous tribute to dads and the many roles they play, from supporting moms through pregnancy and birth, changing diapers and playing catch to teaching teenagers to drive. Dads take the kids fishing, build tree houses, seem to never ask for directions, interrogate their daughters' boyfriends and have heard every excuse in the book. They tuck the kids in at night and act as storytellers. Fathers wear many hats.

We hope these cartoons make you laugh and that you see a bit of your own father, or even yourself, in them. Most importantly, may these cartoons cause you to recognize the many roles and responsibilities inherent in the role of the father and remind you to appreciate the unique men who are lucky enough to be called 'Dad.'
