Father Knows Best clip - starring Robert Young, Jane Wyatt, Billy Gray, Elinor Donahue, Lauren Chapin.
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.
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.
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!
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."
