Julie’s blog yesterday about Scooby Doo got me thinking about tv shows I loved as a kid. There were a lot of them that I really enjoyed that I haven’t seen in years. One of my faves was Lost in Space. Danger, Will Robinson, danger! I never got into Star Trek, but I never missed Lost in Space. Go figure.
Another childhood favorite was The Flintstones. Flintstones, meet the Flintstones–they’re the modern stone-age family! I loved watching Fred, Wilma, Betty, Barney, Pebbles, Bamm-bamm and Dino. I loved the clever way they turned everything that was modern into the stone age equivalent. Yaba Daba Doo!
Along those same lines, I loved the Jetsons. I wanted my family to get a robot maid like Rosie and a dog like Astro. And I wanted Judy Jetson’s hair. Needless to say, none of that worked out.
I also loved Bugs Bunny and all the Looney Toons gang. And then there was Mr. Ed (a horse is a horse, of course, of course!) and My Favorite Martian, Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie, and I Love Lucy (remember the Vitameatavegamin episode?). And let’s not forget Creature Feature, the Monkees, and the Partridge Family. And please tell me I’m not the only one who watched the Jack LaLanne show! Me and my mom watched that all the time.
Wow–it seems as if all I did was watch tv when I was a kid, LOL! What tv shows did you watch growing up? What were your favorite episodes from those shows?
