Major Dad is an American sitcom television series created by Richard C. Okie and John G. Stephens, developed by Earl Pomerantz, that originally ran from 17 September 1989 to 17 May 1993 on CBS.
It starred Gerald McRaney as Major John D. MacGillis and Shanna Reed as his wife Polly. The cast also includes Beverly Archer, Matt Mulhern, Jon Cypher, Marisa Ryan, Nicole Dubuc, and Chelsea Hertford.
General Craig and Lieutenant Holowachuck are transferred to the White House. The new general is a stern disciplinarian whose aide behaves sycophantically. The new base commander has no tolerance for the Major’s easygoing style of leadership, and creates extra work for Gunny with such minute details as ordering she dispose of coloured thumbtacks. The Major and Gunny realise it was a good environment under General Craig and would give anything to work with him again.
This was the last episode shot, but debuted out of order as the penultimate. As such, it is considered the series finale.
