Thank you to everyone who voted in this Poll.
Charles Ingalls was voted as Favorite TV Father, with John Walton, a close second, then Andy Taylor, third.
I love both Charles and John, so I'd definitely choose both of them. In fact, I must say... my own Father has often been compared to both of these characters - hard working and caring.
