At the end of the opening of the show, Gerald McRaney (Major McGillis) picks up Chelsea Hertford (Casey), who instinctively took his uniform hat off and put it on her head. McRaney and the rest of the show's cast and crew thought nothing of it, however many Marines complained of the act, and so for the second season, it was changed to her going to take the hat and McRaney looking at her like, "No." The third and fourth season has her not even trying. However her removing the hat has been left in all first season episodes. See more »
Major Dad was a wonderful show !! Funny and lovable !! I love Gerald Mcrainey and everything he has done. Polly and the girls are pleasant and cute. A very wholesome and family oriented show, wish it was still on !!!! They depicted the US Marine Corp with respect and admiration, which was wonderful. TV nowadays is very lacking in positive wholesome entertainment. They were able to deal with several issue like child abuse and family issues such as step children etc in a very tasteful way. Lt Holowachuk is hilarious and Sgt Alba Bricker is a scream !!! I particularly enjoyed the episode that Holowachuk revealed that he didn't drink, and he gained the respect of his fellow Marines regardless.
