Father Knows Best: Season One
Father Knows Best is one of the all-time favorite family sitcoms. Maybe he didn’t always know best, but insurance salesman Jim Anderson (Robert Young) of Springfield, Ohio, was America’s favorite head of household. Father Knows Best premiered on CBS in October 1954 and has been part of the American cultural fabric ever since. Every week families gathered around the television set to join Jim, Margaret, “Princess”, “Bud” and “Kitten” in their very first year as everyone’s favorite 50’s family. 4 DVD Set – Complete First Season. This wonderful glimpse of the American family in the early 1950s began on radio with the same title, Father Know Best. Naysayers can knock Father Knows Best for being square, but it espouses timeless values. And who’s to say the lingo wasn’t hip for the 1950s? Colorful examples include “goobers,” “criminy,” “creepers,” “knot-head,” and “simply utterly.” You will love this rare classic TV Show. Another family sitcom you might enjoy is Trouble With Father, starting Stuart Erwin.
