Yes, it’s the “Dad’s Day Out Silver Spoons Father’s Day Marathon,” with 37 episodes of the sitcom featuring a kid, Ricky Stratton (Ricky Schroder),who’s growing up while living with his millionaire father, Edward Stratton III (Joel Higgins), who refuses to do so.

In case you oversleep or want to get started in advance, we’ve got the pilot right here:

The pilot will also air free tonight at 3 am ET in Silver Spoons’ regular Antenna TV weeknight time slot.

Antenna TV, as its name implies, is available via an antenna hooked up to your TV set. Visit Antenna TV’s Channel Finder to find your local station, and the channel’s schedule page for the complete Silver Spoons lineup.
