Happy Thanksgiving From Springfield. ..

At home wisth, Margaret, Bud, Betty, and Kathy

No, not the home of Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie et al.  But, the home of  Bud, Betty and Kathy Anderson.  You may notice that at this point, all but "Father" will sound different. Jim Anderson knew best on radio before he came to TV.  Enjoy this "Father Knows Best" radio special, just for Thanksgiving.  

Of course, this was before he ditched the Andersons, changed his name, moved into Beaver's house and called himself "Marcus Welby."

The radio episode may sound familiar to regular viewers of the much-loved 1954-1960 television program, despite the fact that the only recognizable voice is that of Robert Young (the only cast member from the 1949-1954 radio version to, appropriately enough make it to the tv show) since this script was adapted for the small screen.

Here are parts one and two of the radio program.

And, well...

I was going to post the television version, but the only one online was one that asked viewers to purchase it.  Not fair.  So, here's a favorite Bud episode of mine.
