I watched Batman and Robin, The Monkees, Mr Ed, the talking horse, My Three Sons, The Waltons, Bewitched and all the Looney Tune cartoons. I could probably mention others, but have forgotten them now. But I am sure you will all remind me! laugh.gif

I can remember a lot but I'm afraid you don't know most of them (not easy to export our french programs laugh.gif ), 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... tongue.gif tongue.gif

Ok, I'm familiar with what those are. But I didn't watch those. I never actualyl got into a habit of watching many serial shows when I was young, but there were some over the years I found I liked, starting with Cartoons and similar:

Fraggle Rock
Transformers (the time or two I got to see it)
GI-JOE

Ohh, and you remember the old Pinwheel show on Nick? I remember only getting to see it once or twice a year as a kid. I wish I could have seen more.


A-Team
Knight Rider
Airwolf
Star Trek TNG
National Geographic Explorer

The only two of the above I ever got to watch on a regular basis are GI JOE and National Geographic. I wish the latter hadn't started doing repeats all the time :'( If It helps place when I watched it, I remember 3-4 different hosts, among them Robert Urich and Bob Ballard. (late 80's early 90's)

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. blink.gif

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. wink.gif

Thanks CelticRose. I've spent ALL MORNING writing down the shows I used to watch, and haven't gotten anything done for my employer.

The key phrase here is "...As A Child".

"... Station 51 out. KMG 365."

Others were:

Star Trek

Ironside
The Rockford Files
Room 222
Hee Haw
The Six Million Dollar Man
Bonanza
CHiPS (ugh)
Barney Miller
All In The Family
Mission: Impossible
Columbo
Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In
The Captain & Tennille Show
The Hudson Brothers Show (does anyone else remember Bill, Mark, and Brett?)
Saturday Night Live (back when it was actually funny)
Charlie's Angels (back when the Angels were pretty)
Maybe stay up really late and get to watch Don Kirschner's Rock Concert
Maybe stay up really late and get to watch The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson
Maybe stay up really late and get to watch Night Gallery

Space Ghost (yes, I did make my very own Power Bands for my arms)
Johnny Quest
Speed Racer
ANYTHING containing Wile E. Coyote
Captain Kangaroo

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.
