Countdown to Father's Day 2008 (T-08): Top TV Dads

Saturday, June 7th, 2008

As we countdown to Father’s Day (T-08 days) – here’s our continuing look at some of TV’s favorite fathers: From the 1950s cardigan-wearing, “Father Knows Best” types to the 21st century guys juggling dysfunctional families and questionable careers.

TV’s Top Dads (in chronological order)

Mike Brady (1970’s)
TV’s first stepdad, Mike Brady (played by Robert Reed) was the widower patriarch whose new blended family included three sons (his) – and three daughters (wife Carol’s). The Brady Bunch (1969-1974) managed to face their weekly dose of overly dramatic family dilemmas with some firm discipline from Mike (and fresh baked cookies from Alice, the housekeeper). One of TV land’s strictest dads, Mike was also the most even-handed – not to mention the hippest (remember the perm?).

Check back each day for another TV dad (or you can cheat and check out all our TV dads here).

International Clothesline Week
Do you realize that the basic technology of the clothesline hasn’t changes in decades?

I guess if ain’t broke, don’t fix it! Which brings us to this week’s celebration.

We’re encouraged this week to save energy by skipping the dryer and drying our laundry outside on a clothesline.

And remember – the planet you save may be our own!
