Just so you're not confused, this is my dad about the time he was engaged to my mom, maybe even a little earlier, which is cr .1948-49.
This is where I admit I don't really remember, or know much in any case, about TV dads. Most of what I think I remember is what I watched as a kid in the 1950s. My TV watching was limited and after I left home I didn't pay much attention. Even today, I don't know much about TV. So, when Carole asked us to list our favorite TV dads, I was at a loss. Furthermore, I admit, I had to Google TV dads! Seriously, I couldn't think pasted Leave it to Beaver and Ben Cartright, but Google did its job and my memories came flooding back. Here's my Ten on Tuesday list of my Favorite TV Dads.
Ward Cleaver -Leave it to Beaver
Andy Griffith - Andy Griffith Show
Dick Van Dyke - Dick Van Dike Show
Robert Young - Father Knows Best
Ben Cartright - Bonanza
Ozzie Nelson - Ozzie and Harriett
Sky King- Father of a GIRL!
Archie Bunker - All in the Family
Tom Corbett-Courtship of Eddie's Father
Cliff Huxtable - The Cosby Show
I loved Sky King (Google didn't help me there), Leave it to Beaver and the Dick Van Dyke show. As it is I only watched small portions of the other TV shows, so if you really want to know more about TV Dads you'll have to follow the other ToT posters. But, before you go, tell me your favorite TV Dad.
