I'm sure there is a big fan club out there wishing that Mike Brady were their dad, or that Ozzie Nelson had room in the back for them. To me, Tom Corbett was the best father, right up there with Hugh Beaumont from "Leave It To Beaver." Not only was Tom attractive, and funny, but he would always take time to talk to Eddie, and really try to understand what was going on in his world. He was the type of father that would never dismiss any idea, and showed a great deal of respect for his "best friend." When I think of Bill Bixby, I don't think of a guy turning green, or a man talking to a martian. I think of a father, and his son, climbing rocks near the ocean, searching for themselves.
