My Two Dads was a comedy series that ran on TV from 1987 to 1990.

Marcy Bradford, mother to twelve year-old Nicole, passes away, leaving Nicole to live with her father. Trouble is, Marcy was dating two different men when Nicole was conceived, and she never knew which was the father. DNA testing was not yet available, and the blood typing was inconclusive.

The obvious solution is for Nicole to live with both men. This is suggested to be what Nicole's mother wanted, so that Nicole could benefit from each dad's best traits: one man is sensible and organized, while the other is artistic and carefree.

A few years into the series, DNA testing became available. Nicole got tested, but decided not to look at the results, preferring to live with both dads and never knowing which was biologically her father.

Tropes used in My Two Dads include:
  • All Work vs. All Play
  • And That Little Girl Was Me: Subverted. Nichole is worried about going to the prom, and Judge Margaret tells her about another teenage girl who was teased at her prom. When Nichole asks what the girl did, the judge says she destroyed the other girls with her psychic powers.

 Nichole: Wasn't that Carrie?

Margaret: It's all I've got. I was really popular at school.
