| I can remember a lot but I'm afraid you don't know most of them (not easy to export our french programs ), so I'll try to remember "internaltional" one's : Skippy the kangaroo, Flipper the dolphin, Thibaud the khight, The Globe Trotters, The double-decker, The muppet show, and some cartoons like Candy and Goldorak...so you can guess I'm very old...

| Let me say first off, that when I was a child, we had to watch TV by candle light 'cause electricity hadn't been invented yet.
There was Boston Blackie, Yancey Deringer, Checkmate, Peter Gunn, Mr. Wizard, Rin Tin Tin, My Friend Flica, Fury, Sky King, Lone Ranger, 77 Sunset Strip, Sgt Preston of the Mounties, I remember the first season of Captain Kangaroo, The Twentieth Century, Industry on Parade (they always talked about some guy that started making plastics in his garage and ended up with a multi million dollar factory), Perry Mason, The Arthur Godfrey Show, Lawrence Welk, boxing once a week, all the Warner Bros. westerns (Sugar Foot, Maverick, Bronco Lane, Cheyenne, etc.) and a bunch more that I'll probably remember as soon as I get up from here.
Ya'll drive safe and come back soon.

You should consider getting XM Radio or SIRIUS Radio. Both of them have a classic radio theater channel. But XM has an audiobook/new radio theater channel.
I used to watch all the Saturday Morning Cartoons -- Bugs Bunny, etc. When I was about 13 or 14, they had the Dungeons and Dragons cartoon, which I thought was pretty cool. I was also a big Star Trek geek when I was a kid.
Basically, if it was a cartoon, I watched it. I was also a die-hard Sesame Street and Mister Rogers fan.
When I had kids, I got reacquainted with my two public television mainstays. In fact, if you go to my website -- www.humorcolumnists.com
-- you can read a real tear-jerker essay on what Mister Rogers meant to me and my family.
