Warner Home Video will release the first season of Hanna-Barbera’s Wait Till Your Father Gets Home on DVD for the first time on June 5. Available in time for Father’s Day, the four-disc disc will feature 24 episodes of the 1972 primetime series that spun off from a segment on the show Love American Style.
Wait Till Your Father Gets Home is a generational comedy that revolves around the Boyles, a lovable dysfunctional American family living in the suburbs of Los Angeles. Tom Bosley of Happy Days fame lends his voice to the role of Harry Boyle, a conservative father and everyman trying to come to terms with the changing world around him while learning to deal with his liberal kids. His youngest, Jamie, is voiced by actor Jackie Earle Haley, who recently received an Academy Award nomination for his role in Little Children.
DVD special features will include a retrospective featurette titled Animation for the Nation, which highlights the history of the series and time period in which it is set. Also featured is Illustrating the Times, a look at the show’s animation and how it ‘crossed the line of poetic license and danced around the exaggerated version of an American family.’ The disc set will carry a suggested retail price of $44.98.
