"I love my Mum and Dad and my brothers too,
and the groovy way we get along"
"Everytime the slightest little thing goes wrong
Mum starts to sing this familiar song"
"Wait 'till your father gets, until your father gets
Wait 'till your father gets home"
"Dad's not so bad and he seldom gets mad
And we aren't about to desert him"
"Kids today like to have their own way
And what Daddy doesn't know won't hurt him"
"I think my Mum's just swell but she starts to yell
Everytime we have a fight"
"Just...wait 'till your father gets,
until your father gets
Wait 'till your father gets home!"
Wait 'Till your Father Gets Home was a thirty minute animation shown in the early - late 1970s. Originally made in 1972 this animated sitcom was way ahead of the likes of the Simpsons and Married With Children. It focused around a house in Elm Street owned by the Boyle family, Harry the father, Irma the mother, Alice the teenage daughter, Chet the teenage son and Jamie the youngest son, oh and not forgetting the Boyle family dog. Harry worked long hours and was the major bread winner in the family. Irma took care of the housework and the family whilst the kids were typical kids. Alice was constantly trying one diet after another - sometimes several diets all at once. Chet was a dreamer (nicest way of putting it). Jamie was clever and cunning and was never short of money.
