Call for Abstracts - Edited Collection on Father Figures in Children’s Animated/Cartoon TV Shows


 

“The handy thing about being a father is that the historic standard is so pitifully low.”
- Michael Chabon, Pulitzer Prize Winner


 

The trope of the “hapless dad,” clumsy and useless with his own children, appears in storytelling across several mediums—especially in animated kids’ cartoons on TV. For many contemporary kids’ shows, however, this trope appears less pronounced. These shows often showcase masculine parental figures as kind, emotionally intelligent, and nurturing to children, normalizing childrearing is more than just "women's work."
