Classic Episode of Diff'rent Strokes:

And yes, that is the guy from WKRP in Cincinnati, the late great Gordon Jump.

I hate to admit that when I was younger I watched waaaaaay too much TV which helps me especially appreciate Family Guy, the creator of which Seth MacFarlane is likewise my age and watched way too many episodes of shows like this when he was growing up (and often incorporates those references into his show). Fortuitously, given that "Family Guy" is one of the most popular programs of my students, it helps me form a meaningful connection when I do my best to "edutain" them. In education, never underestimate the value of a good Simpsons or Family Guy example.
