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>

29 November 2002 | by (Marrero,Louisiana) – See all my reviews

A lot of people think this show was the cartoon version of All In the Family,but in reality,it is a spin-off from Love,American Style,by coincidence,Tom Bosley was also on another show that spun off from Love,American Style,Happy Days
