TV from waaaaaay back
« on: February 04, 2019, 09:44:37 PM »
Okay, let's have your favorite TV shows from before you were ten!  Link the openings from YouTube, if at all possible.  I don't care if it hasn't aged well or you wish you could disavow it now, and to prove it, I'll go first.

In my case, that'll be 1973 and earlier.  Here we go.

1965: Jonny Quest.  Because JONNY FUCKING QUEST.

You know, the worst is, I am sure I'm forgetting something... and I should put in a word for the 1973 Watergate hearings, which I was absolutely mesmerized by:

Special mention to Fred Rogers.  If you ever needed a half hour to just feel good, it was hard to beat Mr Rogers.  This clip is outside my time frame, but... Margaret fucking Hamilton.

Does anybody else remember Range Rider?  I would be surprised if anybody else does remember it.
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent,
Is he able but not willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able or willing?
Then why call him god?

My families first TV appeared in our household in about 1953.  It carried one station, which came on at 6 am and became a test pattern at 10 pm.  Black and white, of course.  I remember programs like Rin Tin Tin, Range Rider, Dragnet, Liberace, news, Arthur Godfrey, Tennessee Ernie Ford, I love Lucy, and Howdy Doody--and more, I'm sure.

Was also listening to the Lone Ranger, Winnie The Poo, and Gunsmoke on the radio.

I was about 4.5 years old when we got a TV, c. 1955. First program was a travelogue with palm trees and beaches. Hawaii? I actually wondered how they got those little people in that box.

Then I discovered Captain Kangaroo, Mr. Green Jeans, and Howdy Doody.

A few of my favorites have already been mentioned, like Jonny Quest. I recall a few others that I watched early on:

Of course, at that age I only watched cartoons, except in the evening when we'd have to watch the grown-up stuff, like Perry Mason, or Lawrence Welk.

When I was under ten I watched Captain Kangaroo and Mr. Rogers.  Also Romper Room, I was always disappointed that Miss Sharon never saw my name in her Magic Mirror.  I lived in a good Christian home back then so on Sundays there was Davey and Goliath and a local Show called Jean's Story Time.

I remember Davy and Goliath! I also just remembered Shari Lewis and Lambchop:

Had the hots for Sheri Lewis--if a 6 yr old can even have the hots. :)) :huh:

Yeah, they probably work well for tenderizing meat, though.
