• I didn't watch a lot of tv as a kid. I don't watch it now, either, come to think of it. I did like schoolhouse rock as a kid and when I was a teen I liked In Living Color, but my stepfather was prejudiced and would change it. I liked soul train, too. I liked the dancing.

      Did you ever see the show they did where the two guys were conjoined twins, and one of them made it famous, but the other one kind of tried too hard, so even though they were joined at the hip, they ended up drifting apart and not talking to each other. It was one of the funniest things I ever saw on television. I think they recycled the idea later on in a movie, but the show was funnier.

      It sounds familiar, but I don't really remember it. Maybe I just saw previews or part of it.
  • the brady bunch
  • Mighty Mouse
  • Supe's On, with Superhost. Loved the Stooges & Little Rascals episodes that was on before the 2 "flicks" were up. And don't forget the "Convoy" skit. Classic.

  • A favorite? Hard to say; I wasted too much time watching far too much TV. At least it's good for trivia night.
  • Lost In Space. Saturday morning cartoons (Johnny Quest, Mighty Max, ThunderCats, etc.) was a close second.
  • "I Love Lucy"
  • My husband loved "Car 54," too. I wasn't allowed to watch much TV as a child, except in the summers. When I got the chance, I loved "The Man From U.N.C.L.E," "Secret Agent," "The Avengers," and "Star Trek". Then, when I was 11 or 12, a "wheel series" (rotating protagonists) called "The Name of the Game" really hooked me. It was broadcast on Friday nights, so not on school nights, and was about journalists, so my parents let me watch it. (My father was a journalist.) I LOVED it, but by the time I went to boarding school a few years later, it had been cancelled, and I pretty much stopped watching television altogether. No time, with all the homework we had.
  • There were a couple of westerns I liked back in the early 50s. "Rin Tin Tin" was one, and "Brave Eagle, Chief of the Cheyenne" was another. Then there were the rude violent socially unacceptable today cartoons that you can't watch anymore too.

      Yup, and there was Popeye the sailor fighting the Japanese navy, and smoking his pipe.

  • "I Love Lucy" was my favorite

  • When I was a kid, we didn't have TV. I was 12 before I ever knew there was a thing called TV. I was 14 when we got our first TV. We had only one channel. It came on at 4 PM and went off at 11 PM. The test pattern came on at 3 PM.
