Counting Down The 12 Greatest Disney Movie Dads

9. Zeus, Hercules


The easy-going Zeus actually delivers one of the greatest lines ever in a Disney movie, telling Hercules, "A true hero isn't measured by the size of his strength, but by the strength of his heart.”


2. King Triton, The Little Mermaid


While King Triton might have been constantly at odds with Ariel, he clearly loved her deeply. He not only agrees to take her place in Ursula’s contract, but also transforms her into human again, so that she could be with Eric.

1. Mufasa, The Lion King


Like anybody else could be number one.

Mufasa is the quintessential Disney dad, courageous, wise, and most importantly, loving. Even after his death, he is able to guide Simba back to Pride Rock.
