Flawed and Funny TV & Movie Listings Especially For The Dads
Father's Day is this month, and if your dad is anything like mine, he's a big fan of television. So with this in mind, I sorted through the ole private collection of clippings and found an assortment I thought perfect for the occasion. These are all clippings from the television and movie listing sections of newspapers, and from shows and movies with "Dad" themes. Please note that these are typically flawed from human oversight, and as such, don't always reflect exactly what one might expect from the show or movie that's supposed to be described. Others may just be complete editorial goofs, while a few appear to be perhaps intentionally flubbed for the sake of a joke. In either case, I found them amusing and I hope you do, too!
Now when I was a kid, my mom and I spent a lot of evenings watching reruns of My Three Sons. But for the life of me, I had no idea how groundbreaking this series really was!
Family Ties, on the other hand..yeah, Mr. Keaton was an open-book.
So I'm guessing My Mother The Car might be the bride's mom?
This listing is screwed up six ways from Sunday dinner with the inlaws.
If I had never seen this miniseries before, reading this description would have me thinking it's one of those old dilemma-filled, coming-of-age ABC Afterschool Specials.
Yes, there's nothing better than a romantic Sci-Fiction flick.
Because an avenging-dad story is always more dramatic when there are singing animals and Elton John melodies thrown in.
This listing begs to ask: but isn't that where all boys come from?
I have to agree, there are few things scarier than the Rugrats, except their parents.
Changing the baby vampire's first poopy diaper made for a particularly visually disturbing scene.
I may never watch AHS again! And I used to love that show, sigh.
Why Dad should never tell a kid to pull his finger.
Looks like they shared the same writing team on these two.
Yeah, that Bill Cosby has even started giving me the creeps.
The job of being a U.S. President comes with some hardcore responsibilities, doesn't it?
And remember kids, before there was Caitlyn Jenner there was Sesame Street! To think, I always had Bert and Ernie pegged for the first LGBT folks in the neighborhood.
