From Wikipedia:
'The Danny Thomas Show' (known as 'Make Room for Daddy' during the first three seasons) is an American sitcom which ran from 1953 to 1957 on ABC and from 1957 to 1964 on CBS. A revival series known as 'Make Room for Granddaddy' aired on ABC from 1970 to 1971. Episodes regularly featured music as part of the plot by Danny Thomas, guest stars and occasionally by other cast members.

In March 1953, Danny Thomas first signed the contract for the show with ABC and chose Desilu Studios to film it using its three-camera method. Two proposed titles during pre-production were 'The Children's Hour' and 'Here Comes Daddy'.

For me, it will always be 'Make Room For Daddy'.  For a long time, the show lay in syndicated limbo although I remember it being on every afternoon around the late 1960s, early 70s.  But thanks to renewed interest in old shows on various retro networks (in this case COZI-TV), DVD rebirth, and a fervent following on Facebook, 'Make Room For Daddy' is enjoying a growing popularity (even if it is shown during the middle of the night.)

So for today's edition of Saturday comics, we present you with a few examples of the Williams Family as they were seen in the universe of comic books.
