Harrigan and Son is an ABC sitcom about a father-and-son team of lawyers, played by Pat O'Brien as Jim Harrigan Sr. and Roger Perry as Jim Jr.. In supporting roles, as secretaries, are Georgine Darcy as Gypsy and Helen Kleeb as Miss Claridge. The series aired 34 episodes at 8 p.m. Eastern Time on Fridays from October 14, 1960, to September 29, 1961. It preceded ABC's cartoon series, The Flintstones. Its competition was the second half of the CBS Western, Rawhide. For the first half of the season, Harrigan and Son aired opposite the detective series Dan Raven, starring Skip Homeier.
A running gimmick in the show consisted of Harrigan Sr. commenting on some situation in Latin, Harrigan Jr., replying, "Which means?", and Harrigan Sr. translating his comment, usually humorous, into English. The exact same gimmick had been used continually in the television show Colonel Humphrey Flack some years earlier.
