My Favorite TV Dads

My dad, in his humanity, is a flawed man. But he is the only man who has never let me down and he is the only man who I’ve ever truly trusted.

Now let’s get on with the show. In honor of Father’s Day here are clips of my favorite TV dads. Dear readers, I urge you not to miss the last video as it is one of the funniest scenes I’ve ever seen.

I watched “The Andy Griffith Show” every day as a kid and I especially loved the relationship between Andy and his son Opie.  Watch and see if you can identify the little boy in this scene.

Watch this clip of “The Cosby Show” as Heathcliff Huxtable tries to get his daughter Rudy to eat her veggies.  Read more of this post

Tracey Ullman Woman of the Week

“The Simpsons” started with her. She made a music video with Paul McCartney and she’s been making us laugh for over two decades. Yes, it’s Tracey Ullman, the funny woman from England who became an American citizen in 2005. Who can forget the characters she created in “The Tracey Ullman Show.” From the perky 14-year-old Francesca McDowell to the meek and rather tragic Kay Clark, these characters remind me of what I watched in my youth, what made me laugh and what made me look forward to on Sunday nights.  I always felt a twinge of sadness at the end of every show when she said “Go Home … Go Home.”

With numerous movies, television appearances and her fabulous character-based series on HBO and Showtime, Tracey Ullman is my woman of the week because her talent has brought so much happiness to me and to her millions of  fans.

Here’s some vintage Tracey …

Now go home … go home,
