Fatherhood was a live-action sitcom that aired on Nickelodeon from 2004 to 2005. The show was based on the book of the same name by Bill Cosby and follows the life of Dr. Arthur Bindlebeep, played by Blair Underwood, a widower who is trying to raise his three children on his own.

The show takes place in New York City and centers around the Bindlebeep family: Dr. Bindlebeep, his three children, and his two best friends, David and Sarah. The three children are Trevor, played by Jamai Fisher, Angie, played by Khamani Griffin, and Emily, played by Olivia Hack.

Dr. Bindlebeep is a successful pediatrician, but he struggles to manage his personal life and work life. His children often get into trouble, and he has to find a way to balance his profession with his responsibilities as a father.

Trevor, the oldest son, is a teenager who is constantly trying to impress girls and find his place in the world. Angie, the youngest child, is a lovable and precocious young boy who often looks up to his older siblings. Emily, the middle child, is the typical teenager who is always at odds with her father.

The show's comedic moments often come from the interactions between the characters, particularly from the witty banter between Dr. Bindlebeep and his two best friends, David and Sarah. David, played by Anthony Anderson, is a stay-at-home dad who is married to Sarah, played by Sabrina Le Beauf. Sarah is a successful therapist who often offers advice to Dr. Bindlebeep on how to handle his children.

Throughout the series, Dr. Bindlebeep struggles with being a single father and facing the challenges that come with it. He often feels overwhelmed and turns to his friends for support. This show portrays the joys and struggles of single fatherhood in a lighthearted and relatable way.

One of the unique aspects of this show is the way it handles serious topics in a way that is appropriate for children. For example, in one episode, Dr. Bindlebeep has to explain to his children about the death of their mother, something that can be a difficult topic to approach.

Overall, Fatherhood was a heartwarming sitcom that explored the challenges and joys of single parenthood. It was a family-friendly show that both children and adults could enjoy. The show's cast brought the characters to life, and their performances truly made the show a hit. Although it only aired for one season, Fatherhood remains a beloved classic for many who grew up watching Nickelodeon in the early 2000s.

Fatherhood is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (25 episodes). The series first aired on October 12, 2004.
