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>

Jackie Earle Haley
5 February 2007 | by See all my reviews

I love this show. I was 10 when it came out but funny enough, don't remember watching it back in 1972. I guess I was too busy watching the Partridge Family and Brady Bunch. I'm glad it's on the Boomerang network, along with another childhood favorite, the Banana Splits. Thank God for DVR so I can tape them since it's on in the middle of the night. I hadn't seen mentioned here in detail that Jackie Earle Haley, later of the Bad News Bears and most recently, the movie "Little Children" (Oscar nominated) was the voice of youngest son Jamie. According to his IMDb bio WTYFGH was his first acting job, albeit vocally only.

This show is awesome and I'm sure was very topical for its time, for example, the episode when Chet wants to move in with his girlfriend. I'm surprised that the Jack Burns character was able to get away with talking about "Mexicans, Puerto Ricans, Blacks" on a cartoon. He reminds me of a cartoon version of Archie Bunker, for sure.
