The End of the Stupid Father Era....well, for a time, I guess

61 Things You Never Knew About the Cast, Characters, and Production of Bonanza
This was fact number 55 in the collection. Now the stupid males are back in force in commercials and dramas.

"Before Bonanza debuted in 1959 there was a common theme among TV shows. The men played bumbling morons who could only support their family with the leadership of their wives. Creators wanted to make sure that Ben Cartwright was a loved and respected father figure who was working hard to support his family and give his children a good life. The idea worked and soon teenage boys all over the country were writing to the show’s studio to say they wanted Ben to be their father."
