Favorite TV Dads Vary In Polls
Father’s Day is coming up Sunday,June 19, and through the years there have been some memorable Dads on television. Going way back to the fifties was Ozzie of “The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet”. And then there was Pa on “Bonanza” in the sixties. And in the seventies, Howard Cunningham from the seventies’ “Happy Days”?
And in recent years polls have been taken to find out who is the favorite TV Dad and those polls vary. A recent Harris poll shows Cliff Huxtable from “The Cosby Show” as the top Dad, while democraticunderground.com has Red Forman from “That 70s Show” on top. And still another poll has “The Simpsons”cartoon Dad Homer Simpson as the Big Cajuna . Even though I love and laughed with and at all of these guys, I think the best TV Dad of ’em all was Mayberry’s Sheriff Andy Taylor. No one could tell a story like Andy Griffith! Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads on television and all the Dads watching it! It’s your day….relax and enjoy.
