YMMV / Wait Till Your Father Gets Home

  • Animation Age Ghetto: Can you believe that reruns of this used to air on Cartoon Network (long before the advent of the similarly themed [adult swim] block, to boot)?
  • Ear Worm: The theme song.
  • Values Dissonance: To an extent, Cartoon Network's sibling channel, Boomerang. The content of Wait Till Your Father Gets Home should easily garner it a TV-PG rating (it would have if Cartoon Network aired it, especially these days, where you have shows like Regular Show and Adventure Time airing proudly with a TV-PG rating), but when Boomerang last screened it, a "TV-Y7" rating was given. Back in the early 1970s, Wait Till Your Father Gets Home, much as The Simpsons was in its early days, was criticized for being a cartoon with adult content, in a time when animation was thought of as exclusively for children.
    • Having said this, it should be noted that the show was originally designed for and for the most part aired in the new 7:30 family slot.
    • Some of the show's handling of feminism (especially the episode where Irma gets a job at a law firm and the younger, prettier secretary is treated better than the older, plainer Irma), and population control ("Expectant Papa") would be either this or Values Resonance.
  • What Do You Mean, It's Not for Kids?: This show is best described as All in the Family: The Animated Series. Too bad most people at the time saw cartoons as being frivolous kiddie fare, not helped by most of the studio's other content being exactly this. It wouldn't be until The Simpsons came along in the late 1980s for people to see the light.
