A new survey by the Pere Partnership entertainment ad agency of almost 2,400 mothers and fathers who had just had a newborn in the family say Maclaine, who starred in Terms of Endearment, and Keaton, who played Mr. Mom, are their top choice for iconic mothers and fathers from a movie.
Meanwhile, boob tube watchers say Elizabeth Montgomerys character on Bewitched and Tony Danzas blue collared pop on Whos the Boss are the top TV parents of all time.
The survey also asked which star moms and dads would be the best pitchmen. Out of TV moms Felicia Rashad from The Bill Cosby Show is No. 1, while Bill Cosby is the most trusted dad.
Finally, Barbra Streisand and Steve Martin were the most trusted movie mom and dad pitch people.
