Born on this date: Robert Young

Actor Robert Young was born Feb. 22, 1907. Young is best remembered as the father in Father Knows Best and the title character in Marcus Welby, M.D. In his honor, here are the openings to both shows.

In this opening to Father Knows Best, the show is sponsored by Kent cigarettes. Apparently, father knew best how to expose his family to secondhand smoke!

Young is equally reassuring in his role as a doctor on Marcus Welby, M.D. Plus, as an added bonus, the opening shows James Brolin as a hot young doctor on a motorcycle.
