....as in "Robin Hood, Robin Hood, riding thru the glen, Robin Hood, Robin Hood, with his band of men......" (or something), Richard?

Now I remember.....Robin Hood was played by (and this is a reach) Richard Sterling? Some dark haired guy named Richard, anyway. Have to do a search to see how accurate I am.

I am as old as TV....well almost. Annabelle is as old as she wants to pretend to be....but she could tell you that Clayton Moore was the Original TV Lone Ranger and Tonto was played by Jay Silverheels. I've been to Lone Ranger Ranch north of Los Angeles....it was up near Spahn's Movie Ranch of Charles Manson fame.

After a quick search, I see I was wrong about the star of the old Robin Hood TV series.....'twas Richard GREENE and not Richard STERLING. Oh well.....the show ran from 1955-58 and was filmed in and around London and Sherwood Forest, incidently.

Yes McHaggis, that is the very one I remember. You did a good job singing the song I remember.

I was beginning to worry, no one around my neck of the woods remembers that show. I was beginning to wonder if I made it up in my own mind.

Thank you. I would dearly love to see one of those old episodes again just to remember.

Tartangirl comes through with the last two lines of the Robin Hood song! Nice!
And Richard, there's a complete set of the old Robin Hood series available on the net.....I'll look it up and find the URL for you.

Got reminded of some....
The Carol Burnette Show
The Mary Tyler Moore Show
The Bob Newhart Show
The Dick Van Dyke Show
Seem to be name dropping......

And
WKRP in Cincinnatti
Anyone remember the Thanksgiving episode when Les Nessman dropped the live turkeys out of the helicopter, not realizing they couldn't fly?

Scary thought, that! Hard to imagine Robin of Locksley with that squint and the ever present cigarette!

Hi everybody,

It's sure fun reading through all these lists! It brings back to mind a lot of shows that I'd forgotten about, but really enjoyed. Funny how that seems to work as we get further into life rolleyes.gif . (Let's just agree to leave it at that!)
