As the title suggests, these are TV or movie male servant characters mainly who, for whatever reason, have to take on mostly the role of mother or father to their employer's children in addition to performing their own duties. They not only cook meals for the kids and clean up after them, they console them, advise them and care for them like a parent. And since this has the name of Micheal Keaton movie in the title, his role in on this list too eventhough he wasn't a servant. Which one is you favorite?

First off, it is the same character, Lynn Belvedere. They are both based on the novel by Gwen Davenport . Clifton Webb played him two more times: "Mr. Belvedere Goes to College" (1949) and "Mr. Belvedere Rings the Bell" (1951). I'll just update the description for him.
