Today, Sunday 16th June, is Father's Day in many countries around the world.
In the magical worlds of Disney there are many characters who are a dad, or who have been seen as a dad, or performed fatherly duties.
Let us thank them all, and celebrate with our own dads, in this special photo cavalcade.

First up, it's the original Disney dad, Goofy! Although he often embarrasses his son Max, they make quite the pair, and are more alike than Max cares to admit.
