Father Knows Best Old Time
Father Knows Best, a popular American radio and television sitcom of the 1950s and 1960s, portrayed an idealized vision of middle class American life of the era.
The radio show showed a marked difference from the TV series. Jim was far more sarcastic and showed he really "ruled" over his family. Bud was portrayed as a somewhat dim boy who took everything literally. For example Jim would say "Go jump in the lake," to which Bud would reply "OK, Dad; which lake should I go jump into?".
Jim also took to calling his children names, something common on radio but lost in the TV series; for example, Jim would say, "What a bunch of stupid children I have." Margaret was portrayed as virtually solid reason and patience, unless the plot called for her to act a bit off. For example, in a Halloween episode, Margaret cannot understand how the table floated in the air, but that was a rare exception.
Betty, on radio, was portrayed as a status seeking, boy-crazy teenage girl. To her, every little thing was "The worst thing that could ever happen." Kathy, on radio, was portrayed often as a source of irritation. She would whine and cry and complain about her status in the family as overlooked. She often was the source of money to her brother and sister, although she was in hock several years on her own allowance. Bud, on radio, was portrayed as an "all-American" boy who always seemed to need "just a bit more" money, though he got $1.25 per week in allowance. The actor had an "effected 'r'" but not quite as pronounced. Bud was in charge of always having to answer the front door, which he hated.
