Yeah...they had those tube testers at a lot of drug stores, too...and even radios back then had tubes...

We also loved to watch the stations go off the air at night...and the Indian test pattern was fascinating...

I had an old B/W Zenith "portable" TV in my room growing up. I think it weighed about 100 pounds. I remember the dot! My dad used to work on our TVs when they went on the blink. He had dozens and dozens of tubes of all types, and a tube tester. I remember him sitting at the kitchen table with that box, plugging tubes into them. I remember once saying to him that what he was doing looked like fun. He just said "it's not". Also remember those tube testers at the store.

Before we had all the transistors and computers in TVs that we do now, they were all the old tube type...does anyone else remember turning the TV off and waiting to see how long it took for the little dot in the center of the screen to disappear? lol...

We used to watch Burke's Law all the time...also The Avengers...great shows... Gosh, for a list... Batman I Love Lucy Leave It To Beaver The Dick Van Dyke Show (the original, where MGM got her start on TV) Sing Along with Mitch Miller (one of my mother's favorites, wasn't half bad and we loved watching that bouncing ball...lol) Red Skelton Jack Benny Johnny Quest Gilligan's Island Get Smart The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (now that's a pain in the behind to type properly) The Monkees The Brady Bunch All in the Family Mary Tyler Moore Bob Newhart The Jeffersons Good Times The Waltons (got tired of it later, especially with all that "goodnight, John Boy" stuff...) The Twilight Zone Bewitched The Andy Williams Show (especially the Christmas shows) The Hollywood Palace The Munsters We used to watch Torey Southwick all the time...if I remember right, his show was on channel 9, now KMBC) We also watched Whizzo, but it annoyed me because I thought he was incredibly stupid...lol Oh, far too many good shows to remember them all and to list them...

You folks are missing some of the better ones, like Airwolf.

Airwolf, Automan, Manimal, Knight Rider, Street Hawk, Remington Steele, Moonlighting, SOAP, Mork and Mindy, The Cosby Show, Highlander: The Series, War of the Worlds....

There is really a severe lack of decent programming, or at least interesting, these days. It's really a bad sign when Full House is a better choice, ya know?

"Paul Blart? Digging deep for that one, I don't disagree, but gee, I would never give that one any thought." CW

I don't remember what RI has. The opposite of ADD. He keeps a lot of thoughts in his head that I'd normally forget because my mind is more free-form let crap go out of my mouth. If it looks stupid, eh, I don't care. I'm married for life with a great family and am eagerly looking forward to grumpy old man status in thirty years. RI is the Human Google. I think he has photographic memory with a mind that can actually make that useful. However, he still can't remember what temperature a chicken breast needs to be to safely eat it.

And I'm just going to assume I misspelled a bunch of words. I'm with Autie on this being meaningless online.

Now that could be interesting. The Princess told me that White Owl (noted KU campus dirty old man) told them one time that Jesus was from Chicago. I told her that he might be on track because in 1972 I was quite aware that Jesus just left Chicago and he was bound for New Orleans, Searching from one unto the other, and all points inbetween. Is it possible that Jesus is wandering the midwest yet today...39 years later? Just like 40 years in the wilderness but that is a different fairy tale....Oh good lord...Hollis, I haven't even started drinkin yet today.

"Catagorizing poorly made movies "

I can't recall a decent movie she has made. Girl, Interupted was a complete mess, but I guess that's what got her famous. That and being naked in Gia. Another horrible movie.

"then harrassing total strangers in hardware stores."

The French are notorious for their poor reading comprehention skills. The cashier harrassed Jesus. Jesus took it in stride. I was more concerned with my kid banging the cart into the wall.

Many people (especially in Hollywood) don't know that originally the term Angelina Jolie was a French term for "botox overdosed". Catagorizing poorly made movies is probably a better use of time then harrassing total strangers in hardware stores. I drink, therefore I am.

"'Brad Pitt and Sean Penn's New Movie Booed at Cannes'"

It ended up winning best movie at Cannes. There is a technical French name for the award. I believe it is called, "Le Poopy."

Angelina Jolie, while a whore and home-wrecker, I think is actually genuine. She's a crappy actress, but the UN seems to like her.

I bet Peter Fonda was good friends with the Brando boys, Christian and Vito or whatever his name is. All Christian ever did was murder his brother-in-law and then die young. His sister got upset and killed herself. Last I heard about Vito, he claimed he was one of Michael Jaclson's bodyguards. I hope Marlon got a Father of the Year award at least once.

HollisBrown 2 years, 10 months ago

Beverly Hillbillies, which, like Andy Griffith, started sucking once it came out in color. The only decent thing Jane Fonda has done in her life was a few years ago when she let a pissed off Vietnam Vet spit in her face at a book signing without filing charges. However, physically she's holding up well for 73. I would like to fool around with her, but then I would feel really bad about myself afterward. I think Peter meant to direct the "Freaking Traitor" comment at her. Really, besides a lot of drugs, which he bought with the proceeds from his dad's commie movies, he hasn't done anything else in his life. He's probably really frustrated and fry-brained, like me.

We had a ritual when we got home from school to watch "Lil' Rascals" from the 30s. It played on Channel 41 (I think) and we always thought it was hilarious. We also used to turn off the picture--we could do that with old tv sets--and just listen to the sound effects for Speed Racer. It was rather entertaining as the sounds they made would sound very inappropriate. The noises Speed made when he was scared or how Pops used to talk or when you wondered what in the heck Chim-Chim and Trixie were up to. The other shows that were on during that time were Johnny Sokko and Ultraman. They were pretty bad.

My dad and I used to watch Benny Hill at night on channel 41 (back when it was an independent station). That made my mom maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad.

Had no cable, so no MTV when it first came on the air. Sometime in the early 80s, there was a UHF station in Lawrence that would show some of the weirdest music videos. But it introduced me to the B-52's, so something good came from it.

Captain Kangaroo--my very first favorite (Tom Terrific and his Mighty Dog, Manfred, were featured during the show--then there was Bunny Rabbit, Mr Green Jeans, Grandfather Clock... and the sweet, soft-spoken Captain, who, blessedly, never had so much as a squidge of controversy or nastiness attach to his good name) The Andy Griffith Show (but NOT the successor, "Mayberry RFD," which sucked a nightstick) (Everything I needed to know I learned from Andy or the Captain, I do believe) The Dick Van Dyke Show (Dig the separate twin beds for this pair of young hotties--so quaint) I Love Lucy (which was so old, it was already in reruns when I watched it as a little kid) Any Warner Bros cartoons: Bugs, et al... Yogi Bear Woody Woodpecker Huckleberry Hound Top Cat Heckle & Jeckle The Flintstones The Jetsons (Some of these cartoons didn't have their own show; they played within other half-hour presentations--but they were still great faves) Popeye The Three Stooges Lassie (with Timmy--and June Lockhart as Mom. The first few seasons had a kid named Jeff but I don't remember even seeing those in rerun) My Three Sons Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom The Beverly Hillbillies Gilligan's Island The Munsters I Dream of Jeannie Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In The Smothers Brothers The Carol Burnett Show Red Skelton Jackie Gleason (and awaaaaaayyyy we go!) Get Smart The Twilight Zone Gomer Pyle Lost in Space (so campy!) Batman--my brother was hooked on this

Then there were the ones we watched, but, even as children, knew they were pretty crappy: The Patty Duke Show, Petticoat Junction, Green Acres, My Mother the Car, My Favorite Martian, A Family Affair, Flipper----bleeeaaahhhh! I don't think I could stand to watch any of those today, even for the hilarity of it all. So. Very. Bad.

My dad watched all the usual westerns--Bonanza, Gunsmoke, etc... and sometimes, I'd get drawn into a story line, but didn't watch them religiously. My mom latched onto Hee Haw when it came out, and that hideous mess never failed to send me running out the door. My folks also watched Car 54, Where Are You, The Man From U.N.C.L.E., McHale's Navy, Mission Impossible (I would be riveted to the opening scene, with the tape that would self destruct, then wander off when the story was underway), Perry Mason, Dean Martin Show...

There are too many classic shows to nail one down as a childhood favorite--at best, I'd have to say I had different favorites as I got older. First love will always be Captain Kangaroo, though.. What a sweetie.

Whizzo was to Bozo as Joyland was to Worlds of Fun. I remember my parents buying an odd brand of potato chips and getting a blue round plastic token in them that was good for a free ride at Joyland in Topeka. All their rides looked unsafe...creaky and layers of flaking off paint. But I loved going there.

0

scopi_guy 2 years, 10 months ago

The Whizzo! show out of Topeka also scared me to death. Just something about him made me uneasy. But when my cousins got to be on the show on their birthdays, I was pretty jealous. I saw him driving in his Whizzomobile once on the highway when were driving down to my grandparents house.

The Sleestacks on Land of the Lost scared the heck out of me. My brother did a pretty good immitation of them and would put our mom's knee-highs over his hands to make it look like he had webbed fingers and chase me around making that hissing/breathing noise at me. Even at 5, I could tell that show had a very low production budget.

Until I was 10, my main goal in life was to play the tamborine and the triangle for the Partridge Family.

Loved Match Game in the mornings, and The Price is Right. And the CBS Saturday night lineup in the 70s. The Family sketches on Carol Burnett were the best.

The only PBS show I really liked was Zoom. I remember trying to do that thing with your arms like that one girl on that show.

That was not fair Hollis. I read that post and promptly projectile launched coffee through my nasal passages and on to my desk. Do you know how much that burns? I also almost choked to death laughing.

R_I, lest you forget there would be no Patriot Act or Patriots to have a Patriot Act without the French. The blockade made of string cheese trapped the British in Yorktown so the Americans could win...or the British let us win cause they got tired of blowing all their money on such a screwed up adventure. Anyway, if not for the French you could very well be speaking with Cockney accent gov'nor.

Bonanza

Although the show always used the instrumental version of the theme song, there were lyrics. Lorne Greene (Ben Cartwright) sang it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kA-PdP...

When I was 5, I would have told you "Wall Street Week" was my favorite show. Because I used to sit on my dad's lap while he watched it and Louis Rukeyser looked like a very nice grandfather.
