"My Three Sons" father Steven Douglas (Fred McMurray) was my all-time favorite dad. Uncle Charley O'Casey (William Demerest) played a male nanny/house keeper as Mr Douglas was a Widower, and made a wonderful 'surrogate' father in Mr Douglas's absence. side note - prior to Uncle Charley was Bud O'Casey (William Frawley {who played Fred Mertz on I Love Lucy - Charleys brother on-screen)

My folks were divorced early in my life and Mr. Douglas was who I picked to replace my dad and Audrey Hepburn as a imaginary mother (which was only appropriate when I didn't get my way or was in trouble.)
