OT Tuesday January 11 2022: Before the Simpsons ...


Wait Till Your Father Gets Home is an American animated sitcom that aired from 1972-74. The show was the first primetime animated sitcom to run for more than a single season since fellow Hanna-Barbera show The Flintstones more than ten years earlier, and would be the only one until The Simpsons seventeen years later. The show was inspired by All in the Family. Since being one of the first primetime animated sitcoms, it was referred to as the great-grandfather of adult animated sitcoms. By ‘adult’ they don’t mean actual f*cking, pervs.

Its fundamental, fatal flaw was it JUST WASN’T FUNNY.
