Diff'rent Strokes and beyond

Thinking about The Courtship of Eddie's Father had spurred me on to think about other single fathers in TV, movies, and books. So far, my list looks something like this:

  • The Courtship of Eddie's Father
  • Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
  • Finding Nemo
  • Whale Rider
  • Diff'rent Strokes
  • Archie's Place
  • Kramer vs. Kramer
  • Punky Brewster
  • Nanny McPhee
  • Jersey Girl
  • Full House
  • Silver Spoons
  • Benson
  • Gimme a Break
  • The Pursuit of Happyness
  • Silas Marner
  • Pretty in Pink
  • Some Kind of Wonderful
  • The Ballad of Jack and Rose
  • The Andy Griffith Show
  • To Kill a Mockingbird
  • Fly Away Home
  • Life As a House

Additions and suggestions are welcome, especially examples dealing with divorce where the father takes full custody.
