Wait Till Your Father Gets Home began as a one-shot animated segment on Paramount's Love American Style series on ABC-TV in 1972. Entitled "Love and the Old-Fashioned Father", it served as the pilot for the syndicated 1972-74 series. The pilot was originally purchased by the NBC owned stations to help fill up the then new FCC prime-time access rule time slots.

The series was created by Harvey Bullock and R. S. Allen. It showcased the generation gap clashes between dad Harry Boyle (voiced by Tom Bosley) and his three modern day kids, Chet, Alice and Jamie. In it's second year, the show featured many celebrity guest voices, including Don Knotts, Phyllis Diller, Don Adams, Rich Little, Jonathon Winters and Monty Hall.

This was around the same time that many of these stars also lent their voices to another Hanna-Barbera cartoon, The New Scooby Doo Movies. Other voices included Joan Gerber as Irma Boyle, Kristina Holland as daughter Alice, David Hayward as son Chet (replaced by Lennie Weinrib in season two), Jackie Haley as youngest son Jamie, and comedian Jack Burns as the vigilante neighbor Ralph.
