Dads have been a huge part of television from the very beginning. More than a few shows, especially in the Fifties and Sixties, revolved around a dad and his family. Most series portrayed married life, but a few iconic dads like Andy Taylor and Lucas McCain were single. 

Here are 15 TV episodes that all have Father, Dad, Paw or even Pappy in the title. Can you match each one to the right show?

While all the results are on the honor system, me trusting you, and you trusting me, with that in mind, I'm not going to reveal how absolutely horrible I did. I'd like to convince y'all that I am a better father than guesser. Only MeTV knows for sure.

Thinking about Dick Van Dyke Show's Father of the Week when I answered the Father of the Year question.

I got trip up on the, "My Dad the Athlete" question.

What's really funny is that years later they repeated the Father of the Week plot for an episode of the Bob Newhart Show. Since Bob and Emily didn't have kids of their own, Bob got invited to speak to the class that Emily was substitute-teaching. The kids, naturally, had no interest in psychology, especially when there was a firefighter there as well, Howard was an airline navigator, and even Jerry showed up with a giant tooth. Bob returns a second time and shows the kids Rorshach test cards,
