Dads have been a huge part of television from the very beginning. More than a few shows, especially in the Fifties and Sixties, revolved around a dad and his family. Most series portrayed married life, but a few iconic dads like Andy Taylor and Lucas McCain were single. 

Here are 15 TV episodes that all have Father, Dad, Paw or even Pappy in the title. Can you match each one to the right show?

  1. “Fonzie the Father”
  2. “Lucy Becomes a Father”
  3. “The Case of the Flighty Father”
  4. “Dear Dad”
  5. “Mrs. Drysdale’s Father”
  6. “Gomer and the Father Figure”
  7. “Daddies Anonymous”
  8. “Pappy”
  9. “Look Paw, I’m Dancing”
  10. “Father of the Year”
  11. “Substitute Father”
  12. “I’m Allergic to Daddy”
  13. “Daddy-O”
  14. “My Dad, the Athlete”
  15. “Boots with My Father’s Name”

Can you match these Dad-centric episodes to the right shows?

Father's day is like some father-son event, and the choices are to be embarrassed, ornot go.

Not everyone has a father that's around.
