Ed,

For your consideration:

The Courtship of Eddie's Father (1969–1972)
Widower Tom Corbett raises his young son Eddie.

Widower Tom Corbett must raise his son Eddie (originally seven) who is always scheming to get his dad remarried. Tom is a magazine publisher, Mrs. Livingston is his housekeeper, Tina is Tom's secretary, Norman is a photographer, and Joey is a friend of Eddie's.

People let me tell ya about my best friend!
I had it on and pulled it because of low ratings.
But I'll put it back in. Matter of fact It was the first thing that came to my mind. Was shocked that it is not remembered by anyone but us "Old Folks" ! LOL

Ed,

I suspected that you excluded "The Courtship of Eddie's Father" because of low ratings. It is also the first series that came to mind when I saw the title of your poll suggestion.

I loved that show when I was little but I'm a bit perplexed: I couldn't possibly have known it when it was originally on. I guess it must have been re-runs. Come to think of it, re-runs were also on some cable channel within the past ten years because I saw Jodie Foster on the series, lol.

Atticus Finch, I would be helpful to have the name of the single dad for each movie.

Making people think is better than thinking for them. Telling them who it is means that they do not retain things or they have not seen the title.
Sometimes a poll needs to nudge ones memory.
There is only one title in that list that I personally have not seen.
For other people that dont know who the single father is for the specific title, they are not going to vote on it anyway. So having the name of that Father would not matter.
No, there will be no names.

Trivia: Who is the one Single Father that is most hard to Identify contained in the poll?

Hard question:

I saw: 

The Pursuit of Happiness ( Forgot his name)
Mary Poppins ( Forgot his name)
Finding Nemo (Forgot his name)
The Parent Trap (Forgot his name
Night at the Museum (Forgot his name, I didn't even remember that the dude had children)
To Kill a Mockingbird (Atticus Finch)
How to Train Your Dragon (I just know that he died)
Tomorrowland ( I thought that the dude was just a lonely old man, not a dad)
Nanny McPhee (There is a dad ?)

So, I don't know wish one is the hardest to remember since I forgot all their names and can't remember, but I know that I will vote for Atticus Finch because he is the only one that I remember.

I have never seen this and am not familiar with it as will others be too. Keyword says single parent not Single Dad or Single Father too.
Thanks, but I'll pass on that one.

I know that the list is full but I was looking in vain for my favorite 'TheRoad' https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0898367/ (and no Ed, it's not because of Charlize Theron)
