Synopsis

37 Classic Uncut Episodes With America's Premier Sitcom Family

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 Two of FATHER KNOWS BEST.

Following Season One's cancellation from its 10:30 p.m. time slot on CBS, fans protested, prompting rival network NBC to pick up the series for a second season. The show became successful when it began airing in August 1955 at the more family-friendly time of 8:30 p.m. A growing number of families began tuning in to see what kind of trouble "Bud" (Billy Gray) was going to get into next, how Kathy (Lauren Chapin) was handling growing up, whether Betty (Elinor Donahue) and her boyfriend du jour would break up and how Margaret (Jane Wyatt) would inevitably hold their universe together. A day in the life of the Andersons was a 1950s suburban dream come true.

Join Jim and Margaret and "Princess," "Bud" and "Kitten" in Season Two as everyone's favorite '50s family in FATHER KNOWS BEST.
