While it's certainly hard to find maternal figures in Disney movies, you needn't look hard to find paternal figures! Thus, I give you, Disney Daddy Day! We look at the paternal figures, and evaluate their good parenting moves, and their bad.
Thanks to IMDB for the quotes.
The Sultan of Agrabah from Aladdin
He even acts as a replacement father to Aladdin in the sequels and TV series.
Best Daddy Moment: Refusing to arrange a marriage for Jasmine (at least, when he's er...in control of his thoughts and actions). He may be forcing Jasmine to choose a suitor, but he's letting her choose.
Worst Daddy Moment: Letting himself be controlled by Jafar. Well, then again, Jafar did hypnotize him. So...not having a name?
Best Parental Quote: "That's right. You've certainly proven your worth as far as I'm concerned. It's the law that's the problem."
"Well, am I sultan, or am I sultan? From this day forth, the princess shall marry whomever she deems worthy!"
He's as lovable as Maurice, just with power, and without a proper name.
