Western Animation / Fatherhood


This Animated Series on Nick at Nite, based on the popular book by Bill Cosby, concerns high school teacher Arthur Bindlebeep; his wife, Norma; their three children, Angie, Roy and Katherine, and the family dog, Guinness. The stories tend to be gentler than those in other animated Sit Coms, and there's always a lesson to be learned at the end. The show ran for two seasons from 2004 to 2005.

The voice cast includes Blair Underwood as Arthur Bindlebeep and Sabrina Le Beauf as Norma. The show's official site is at http://www.tvland.com/nickatnite/shows/fatherhood/ (two seasons have been produced so far).
This series provides examples of:
  • Bears Are Bad News: In "Take My Daughter... Please", a bear was in the garage. But that wasn't the worse part.
  • Limited Social Circle: In "Take My Daughter... Please", the parents were briefly worried that Roy doesn't have enough friends and he might end up a lonely drifter.
