  • Details
Fred McMurray's portrayal of the wise, earnest widower Steve Douglas raising his three sons with the help of his father-in-law, "Bub" O'Casey (William Frawley), was the key to this elemental 1960s suburban domestic comedy. Sibling rivalries, neighborhood intrigue and assorted challenges of childhood and adolescence generate engaging and often hilarious life lessons, as do Steve's often awkward relations with members of the opposite sex.
