8 Financially Savvy Sitcom Parents We Love

7 Financially Savvy Sitcom Parents We LoveWhen you hear the words "educational television," probably a few specific programs spring to mind.

"Sesame Street."
"Dora the Explorer."
"Arrested Development."

  • I like Full House the best. I especially like Stephanie Tanner and DJ Tanner’s best friend Kimmy Gibbler, as they make a great comedy team. :)
