Storyline

Harry Boyle, a mostly conservative businessman, has a son, Chet, and a daughter Alice. Chet is a hippie and Alice is sexually liberated. Harry's shrewd youngest son Jamie is often an ally, but Harry's wife Irma is a neutral in the ongoing generational war. Their paranoid reactionary neighbor, Ralph, prepares them for the oncoming takeover by the Communists. Written by J.E. McKillop <jack-mckillop@worldnet.att.net>

A Cult Classic
6 July 2003 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite show's from Hanna-Barbera. After years of placing families in the stone age, the space age and even in ancient Rome, Hanna-Barbera finally had a piece that took place in this century. The best thing about this show was the fact that the Boyles were played more or less like real people and it was a very humorous look at how conservative Harry dealt with not only his liberal kids, Alice and Chet, but with a changing world around him. However, the real star was Ralph, Harry's reactionary neighbor. He made Dale from "King of the Hill" look normal. Ralph was always looking for communists in every nook and cranny and he would always give Harry all sorts of crazy advice based on his wild theories. The only thing I found wrong with the show, however, was the poor job of animation (allegedly Hanna-Barbera "farmed out" the animation work to a Canadian company as a way to save money). All in all, though, despite the poor animating, this still is one of the funniest cartoons to come out of the 1970's.
