Just as "The Flintstones" was modeled after "The Honeymooners," WAIT TIL YOUR FATHER GETS HOME is the animated cousin of "All in the Family." And, just as "All in the Family" broke new ground, so does this fantastic Hanna-Barbera classic. The hot-button topics of the early 70s are all here -- feminism, bigotry, even nudism! -- and the scripts are superly written, surprisingly bold and truly funny. Top-notch voice talent, too, featuring Tom Bosley, Allan Melvin, John Stevenson, Sandra "Gladys Kravitz" Gould, Casey Kasem, and more.
Also, THANK YOU to this set's producers for keeping the show's laugh track, as it originally aired. Given that the series is a bonafide sitcom and aired in primetime, the laugh track is totally appropriate here -- and actually adds to the fun.
If you are a "Simpsons" fan, that show would be unthinkable had WAIT TIL YOUR FATHER GETS HOME not paved the way. And even if you're not, this 4-disc set makes for hours of terrific watching.
