That was pretty good! I still don't remember it though. It sort of sort of reminded me of Gilligan's Island in the stone age. Was that always the theme, or did they land in different places for each show?


That was the theme for the short duration of the show. I loved it then & still do!

I was trying to place who the actors were and what other shows they played in. I'll have to look it up on the movie data site and get a list of the actors names.

You must have been reading my mind. I was out all day and was just going to add several of the shows you listed. I didn't know if anyone would remember The Real McCoys or My Mother The Car.

Now what was the name of the show starring John Astin, set in cowboy days. When the show came on, he was a baby left for wolves to raise. Showed him as baby in diaper, then grown...still with the diaper on????????
Ok, now more.....Wild Wild West, Hogan's Heroes, The Munsters, Night Gallery, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Bonanza, The Virginian, High Chapperal, Kung Fu, Maverick, Wagon Train, The Dick Van Dyke Show, seriously.......I could go on & on. I watched every show regularly that I've listed & many many more I can't recall I'm sure. I did do a seach of Joh Astin half through this post............Evil Roy Slade was the question I started this post with.
It is amazing how many I can recall & every single one was a top notch show...no cussing, no sex (except for Ellie May Clampett LOL). Just remembered ....One Day At A Time, The Jeffersons, All in the Family. I gotta stop...time to get some sleep! LOL All these great shows of the past & nothing worth a crap today!:mad2::mad2::mad2:

Gun Smoke, The Big Valley, Rin Tin Tin, Lassie, Sky King, 77 Sun Set Strip, Route 66, Gomer Pyle, Garfield Goose. Three Stooges.
Then Came Bronson... this is addicting!

Better quit and go to bed. Hope I didn't do any repeats

Somebody listed Ed Sullivan already... I can't remember... What was the name of that mouse on the show?

As for cartoons...one of my early faves was "Tobor the 8 Man". Tobor spelled backwards is robot.
As for my oldest favorite made for TV movie was "The Ghost & Mr Chicken". Don Knotts was such a good actor!
Another fave just came to mind as I mentioned Don Knotts......"Gomer Pyle USMC"...had to love how me got to ole Seargent Carter! edited to add: I see Bill beat me to Gomer! LOL

Thats a easy one. Topo Gigo was his name,of course it was said with a shyness.He used to like having Ed scratch him behind the ears.
It's funny how the old shows made a impression on us,we can seem to remeber them quite easily. Larry
