Father Knows Best premiered on CBS in October 1954 and has been part of the American cultural fabric ever since. The program's depiction of a "typical" mid-century, middle-class, Midwestern American family is fondly remembered by many of us who grew up watching the show and rather enviously thinking: "Oh. So this is what happens in all the other houses."
Every evening mid-century, Midwestern insurance salesman Jim Anderson came home, put on his favorite sweater and prepared for an evening with his family--a situation where anything could happen. Robert Young returns to the head of the dinner table to play the patriarch of America's most beloved family in Season 2 of Father Knows Best.
Robert Young is back as America's favorite father to the beloved Anderson family, serving up healthy and wholesome doses of advice for his growing kids.
Take a trip back to 1950s suburbia with the Andersons! Robert Young is Jim Anderson, patriarch extraordinaire to his loving--though at times misguided--family. With Bud taking up mind-reading, Kathy rebelling at camp, and Margaret and Betty enrolled in the same class, this father has his hands full!
