When I was a boy growing up in the 1960s, my favorite TV show was "The Jetsons." It was all about the wonderful adventures of a 21st-century space-age family. There was George Jetson, Jane (his wife), daughter Judy, and his boy Elroy.
When I was a boy growing up during the Eisenhower Administration and the New Frontier, fathers were revered figures in America. One of those revered fathers lived in my own home. He was my Dad.
