Wait Till Your Father Gets Home is an animated sitcom produced by Hanna-Barbera that aired in first-run syndication in the United States from 1972 to 1974 (airing on most NBC stations on Sunday nights at 10:30, except for the ones who had moved their late-night news to that slot). The show originated in a one-time segment on Love, American Style called “Love and the Old-Fashioned Father”. The same pilot was later produced with a live cast (starring Van Johnson), but with no success.
The show was the first primetime animated sitcom to run for more than a single season since The Flintstones more than 10 years earlier and would be the only one until The Simpsons 15 years later. The show was inspired by All in the Family.1 Comment
