I also remember Night Rider and McGyver (I was a small, young kid). Also, there's Rags to Riches, Beverly Hills 90210 and Baywatch.

Oh, I am old... :grandpa:
Cuz if you're talking about childhood/early teen TV shows, mine are:
The Monkees (of course!)
The Wonderful World of Disney
The Mickey Mouse Club (the original, with Annette and Cubby et. al.)
Dark Shadows (oooh, spooky!)
Love, American Style
The Partridge Family
Rocky & Bullwinkle
Scooby-Doo, Where Are You?
The Andy Griffith Show
Space Ghost (the original, with Jan and Jace and Blip)
Jonny Quest (Sim sim sala bim!)
The Huntley-Brinkley Report (Beethovan's Ninth for a theme song - awesome!)
The CBS Evening News with Walter Cronkite
Heck, I remember back when we only had a B&W TV and what a great day it was when my parents brought home a color set.
Yep, I am old...

wow, Torka. You are old.. LOL.. just playing. Most of those shows are just a bit before my time. Not much though.. (born in '68)
For some reason, even though I am not a big sci-fi fan, I loved Battlestar Galactica.. I thought the Cylons were bad a--

I was ready to defend Torka's youth, and then I saw "Walter Conkite" : ).
But I remember The Partridge Family, though I guess it was a rerun.
Married: with Children
The Greatest American Hero

Hey, Cronkite was anchoring the CBS Evening News until 1981. Huntley and Brinkley wrapped up on NBC in 1970. But given that you were only two years old then and the news doesn't often show up in reruns, I don't expect you'd remember them too well. ;)
I was in college for most of Wonder Woman's run, so I can't count that one as a "childhood" TV series, although I do remember it well. I liked the show especially since Wonder Woman's "real" name is Princess Diana and my "real" name is Diane. (I know, doesn't take much to impress me, apparently.) :)
So, how many oldsters here (besides me) will admit to being able to remember where you were and what you were doing when JFK got shot?

I Dream of Jeannie

Oh, man, I had totally forgotten about Get Smart. "Sorry about that, Chief!"
Earlier today some of us were reminiscing about Rev. Jim and some of the other characters on "Taxi" and a couple of the guys from the office had never seen the show. I told them nobody had ever heard of Christopher Lloyd or Danny Devito before Taxi and they were totally amazed.
Man, I think I need to go home and take a nap. Us old folks gotta take care of ourselves...

TORKA.....................I can't believe you left out the LAWRENCE WELK SHOW and all of those tiny little bubbles....... :toast1:
The Partridge Family
Heck, I remember when I was the REMOTE. :sidesplit
12th December 2007, 02:25 PM
My GRANDPARENTS watched the Lawrence Welk show. I didn't care for it, myself (except maybe when Bobby and Cissy danced :D).
Laugh In was more my kind of variety show. ;)
I remember when I was the remote, too (and when the TV was black and white).
Of course, I also remember when the only way music came was on vinyl records or reel-to-reel tapes (my uncle had this enormous reel to reel machine he used to listen to classical recordings). I remember having to keep a supply of those little plastic inserts for the middle of 45 RPM records so I could stack them on the spindle of my record player. I remember when transistor radios were the cat's pyjamas. I remember when people said things like "the cat's pyjamas." I remember when every town had at least one (and often several) drive-in movie theaters. I remember when the hottest radio DJ in town would broadcast from a booth in the parking lot of the local drive-in burger joint every night (and I'd listen to him on my super-groovy transistor radio).
But ask me to remember what I did at work yesterday, and I have no idea.
Memory is a funny thing...

I love it. I am a baby comparitevely born in '82. But I grew up in a small rural town that was(still is) a few decades behind the times. My first veheicle had an 8 track in it and working 8 tracks. They came with it as you couldn't buy 8 tracks anymore. I used to take my highschool sweetheart (now my wife) to the drive-in for dates. We had a b&w tv and my dad would tune in the football game on the radio so we coul watch and listen. Fun stuff. I am probably the 25 year old in america that has high speed internet but no cable or satelite tv. Just an old tv to watch rented movies from time to time. It is color though.
