James, no idea to the gumshoe w/bird. You named a few more of my regular watched shows. One other I remember was "Dr Kildare"....then "I Spy", and I LOVED "Get Smart"! "Secret Agent" and more!

Anyone also recall "It's About Time, It's About Space"? Only ran a year, but as a kid I loved it. Almost all the old shows were great. Even the worst of yesteryear's shows are better than 90% of the crap on TV today.:mecry:


What was the show about the young gold miner they found frozen in Alaska, brought him back to life, and he went to live with his grandson who was a old Air Force General?
The Rat Patrol with Eric Baden from The Young and The Restless

Laugh In
Bewitched

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


Thanks, Larry. I can hear Ed saying that name, now that you told me what it was.

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


I forgot about Tobor. Did you ever see the movie Tobor The Great? I don't know if the TV show was related, or not.

I can kind of remember the one about the frozen gold miner, but can't recall the name.
Candid Camera... that was a great show! Made back when you could fool people with simple things.
Charlies Angels... I got to watch them, filming an episode at the hotel we were staying at in Hawaii. They spent hours, doing a take of the film, that was only a couple minutes long on the show!
The Evening News Show... Used to be only 15 minutes long! As a kid, I couldn't wait for it to get over... Yogi Bear and Boo Boo came on next!

Don't recall that one Bill.


Tobor...It was one of mine, and my sister's, favorite movies. It was shown on a local Chicago show called Family Classics, that was hosted by Frazier Thomas. They showed some really great old classics... hence the name. It was a something we always looked forward to watching, on Sunday afternoon, because it was always a good show!!! Frazier Thomas was, later, a replacement Ring Master for the Bozo Show.

By mistake, I found this thread.
Not that I was a huge fan, but at times, it's all that was on.
Lavern and Sherlly.

Remember the theme song.
Hum it a few times.

Sure would be interesting to see what the next generation would post here.

That's almost scarey. I just don't get some of the stuff on the tube now.
Shows like, funniest home videos.
I just can't find humor in watching stupid people hurting themselves.

When I see those types of shows, I start humming

Great shows listed by all. But my First thoughts go to the old Sunday night lineup of Wonderful World of Disney and Mutual of Omahas Wild Kingdom. And Mannix after those, when I was allowed to stay up.

Of all the shows listed here...Loved many of them by the way...No one mentioned Star Trek! Another one of my favorites was "Night Stalker" with Darren McGavin! I didn't see Happy Days either. I almost forgot to mention that my favorite cartoon series was the Looney Toons! Bugs, Daffy, Porky Pig, Foghorn Leghorn (one of my absolute favorites!), The Road Runner,and Speedy Gonzales!
