In honor of Father's Day, USA TODAY Network is highlighting some of our favorite dads whose acts for their kids cracked up, entertained or impressed the Internet.

1. Donkey Kong hacked

Self-described "gamer dad" Mike Mika of California hacked the video game Donkey Kong so that his daughter could play as the female character Pauline who saves Mario, instead of the other way around.

"If this experience has taught me anything, it's that the world could be just a bit more accommodating," Mika wrote in a 2013 article for Wired.

2. Oh, The Places You'll Go!

Bryan Martin of North Carolina spent 13 years collecting teachers' comments about his daughter, Brenna, in a copy of Dr. Seuss' Oh, The Places You'll Go! Martin gave the book to his daughter in 2012 when she graduated from high school.

Brenna's post on Imgur has nearly 25.5 million views.

3. 21 Years

Twenty-one years are compressed into a six-minute video Ian McLeod created using photos he had taken of his son every day (with a few exceptions) since birth. The video has 6.2 million views on YouTube.

4. Saturday mornings

Vine user and dad "Bottlerocket" captures what it's like on Saturday mornings with weekly short videos. The videos usually feature him in the foreground looking exhausted while his 4-year-old daughter is in the background jumping on furniture, singing and dancing.

He now has more than 340,000 followers on Vine, and a YouTube compilation of the videos has nearly 3 million views.

5. Multitasking dad

While on paternity leave, Los Angeles resident Doyin Richards took a selfie of himself combing his 3-year-old daughter's hair while he carried his 3-month-old daughter. Richards, who blogs at Daddy Doin' Work, said he snapped the photo to prove to his wife that he could handle getting both girls ready in the morning.
