After its inception as a radio program in the late 1940s, FATHER KNOWS BEST quickly went on to become the definitive TV portrait of the nuclear family, winning six Emmy awards and millions of loyal fans. Despite the titles declaration, the show often poked gentle fun at the "traditional" middle-class order, allowing dad, Jim Anderson (Robert Young), to be bested by his brood, including his wife, Margaret (Jane Wyatt), his eldest daughter, Betty (Elinor Donahue), his son, Bud (Bill Gray), and the baby of the family, Kitten (Lauren Chapin). This Season Three collection features 37 classic episodes, including "Margaret Disowns her Family," "The Angels Sweater," and "Whistle Bait."
