Childhood TV memories

Get Smart
Land of the Giants
The Galloping Gourmet
don't forget Beverly Hillbillies!
What???? No one mentioned the Kids of Degrassi Street?? The Electric Company? You Can't do that on Television?

Who mentioned Quincey? I used to watch that with my grandmother. I loved that show. Charlie's Angles, Rockford files and Columbo were all favs of mine when I was little. I guess I was really into detective shows.

I must admit to loving the Beach Combers too.

Kung friend and i were heavily into the reruns...he tried to get his older sister into it...she couldn't and did not get it....

she said lol.....the guy just wants water and has no need for money....

it was so true....people would offer him money and he would say"I have no need for money"

if he was in a bar all he wanted was water...or like a dog for some water...

do you remeber when they chained him to Pontoon...some neanderthal ....

my friend nicknamed me pontoon for years...then the nick became..."don't call me halal"....LOL don't ask...Hi is Don't call me halal there....

The original producer of that stuff, Friz Freleng, was an opera buff and frequently used operatic scores as background music, if not the actual subject, as in the Barber of Seville. Those cartoons were my introduction to opera, and there are still musical passages I cannot hear without thinking of those cartoons and laughing. I doubt I could sit through a real performance of The Barber of Seville without behaving inappropriately in an opera house.

LOL Dexter, I remember having extremely violent laugh attacks from watching the Barber of Seville with Bugs and Elmer Fudd... Bugs bunny massaging Elmer's bald head to the rhythm of the music was just too much to bear for me... Me and my siblings would simply become hysterical with laughter...

Good ol' game shows like Match Game. Hilarious. And the original Hollywood Squares. Just like a Dean Martin Roast. Oh hell, that was even pretty good when I see them now.
Banana Splits, The Monkeys, Romper Room, Wild Wild West in my youngest days. Always wanted to watch Peyton Place and Dark Shadows but my mom wouldn't let me.

My first memory of television was about three days of my sisters screaming about The Beatles were coming and going to be on television

Woo hoo.... I sat there entranced while that sad man Sullivan announced their arrival....

It was a buncha guy with weird hair.... so much for sisters knowing everything!!! They weren't even dressed in costumes...

Johnny Quest and Space Ghost. No kidding Space Ghost is back with a talk show. I got the same Sunday night programming that most have mentioned. Sullivan when I was young, and Rat Patrol. Then as I grew older and we got another tv, Captain Kangaroo before school. I remember Sesame Street when they were just starting out. I was a little old for that and the novelty wore off pretty quick. Mostly there wasn't much time for tv though. Back when kids could play outside without armed escort.
