The relevance for today
28 January 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Surely this cartoon series has resonances for today and deserves a contemporary audience.

There are many funny scenes and dialogues as a broadly average family man struggles to deal with all the tribulations we have come to expect from raising teenage children.

However, Harry also has to put up with a lunatic neighbour who is armed to the teeth and sees communists everywhere.

Superimpose an image of the overreaction of many to the perceived terrorist threat of today. Everyday behaviour is modified, trust is at a minimum and everybody is suspected.

Against this background, Harry is trying to raise his family, prepare them for the future and help them make educated decisions.

Allow today's viewers to draw their own conclusions about the paranoia and fear in America at the start of the 21st century and the effect that this has on family life.

But don't forget, "Wait Till Your Father Gets Home" is very funny.
