Mickey Mouse Club was a favorite too (the original with Annette). My older sister always watched American Bandstand so I started watching that show very young and grew up with it! biggrin.gif

When I was a child, and I mean a really little child which has been a LONG time ago there have been only two TV channels here. Most of my favorites of this time have already been mentioned: Lassie, Fury, Bonanza, Daktari but not RinTinTin...does anyone still remember RinTinTin? I loved it!!! biggrin.gif

It's pretty scary to realize that I grew up in the days of all these classic TV shows. However, when I try to emphasize to my lovely wife that I, too, am a classic, she just refers to the excess rust and age sad.gif . Oh Well . .

Of course, everyone grew up on Looney Toons. Bugs and Daffy were my roll models! And no one ever gives enough credit to the late, great Mel Blanc, the voice of all the Toons. He helped babysit an entire generation. What a great talent!

One show I don't recall seeing mentioned was Combat! Pretty nifty WWII show. The local rasslin' shows, featuring Bobo Brazil, the Sheik, Hans Schmidt, Lord Athol Layton, Wild Bull Curry, Mark Lewin, (the list could go on and on) was must see TV at our house.

The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson was great stuff. Got to give kudos to Ed Sullivan also. Was anything as dumb funny as Hogan's Heroes? I agree that with all the channels we have today, there is not near the quality we had then. Yes, I officially declare myself an old fogey!

Merry Christmas everyone!

More TV shows I watched as a kid:

The Dukes of Hazzard (IMHO, the General Lee was the best car ever from a TV show)
Knight Rider (KITT was a close second)
The Incredible Hulk (Eric Bana has nothing on Lou Ferrigno)
Dudley Do-Right
George of The Jungle
The Courtship of Eddie's Father
Get Smart (greatest gag ever in TV-Maxwell Smart's shoe phone biggrin.gif )
Double Dare (a kids' game show on Nickelodeon)
Woody Woodpecker
You Can't Do That On Television (a kids' show on Nickelodeon which was basically the anti-"Mickey Mouse Club")

Pop quiz: Which four pop singers on the radio today were on kids' TV shows in their younger years?

Answer: Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake and Alanis Morrisette. Britney, Christina and Justin were on the "Mickey Mouse Club". Alanis was on "You Can't Do That On Television".

Could that be Engineer Bill? With the game" Red light, Green Light" with a glass of milk?

How about Hobo Kelly? The Paul Winchel Show with Jerry Mahoney and Knucklehead?
