Happy Aunt and Uncle’s Day! This fun holiday is all about appreciating the parts of families that often go overlooked. Whether they act as another pair of parents or friends, aunts and uncles can be special for lots of folks. So as a celebration, we’ve created a short list of fictional ones who know how to make their niece or nephew feel loved!
Phil from Fresh Prince of Bel Air
While he was often tough on his nephew Will, uncle Phil was ultimately the support system every kid needs. Remember that one scene after Will’s father leaves? No, I’m not crying, you are.
Edna from the Incredibles
It should be said that not all aunts or uncles need to be blood-related. They just gotta have lots of love to give! Edna from the Incredibles is an example of that: she babysits Jack-Jack and they become BFFs. Who would’ve thought?
May from the MARVEL UNIVERSE
An absolute icon when it comes to the character of Spiderman. She takes in Peter, raises him as her own, and does everything to ensure he’s safe and happy. No matter how many versions of her there are, aunt May is the best.
Donald Duck from Disney
As if Donald Duck wasn’t already a grump by himself, he often has to deal with his rambunctious nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie. This trio of brats love to push their uncle’s buttons, but he still adores and protects them!
Luke Skywalker from Star Wars UNIVERSE
Besides holding a lightsaber over his sleeping nephew, uncle Luke did a fine job. He took on the responsibility of practically raising his nephew Ben after Leia and Han sent him to Jedi training. And hey, the two eventually made up in the afterlife because of Rey, so that counts.
