What TV shows did you like as a child? - Page 2

post #31 of 56
I loved Karl Kolchak! Not exactly a kid's show -- and I was no longer a kid by the time it came along -- but my brother and I were both crazy about it.

But for kid's shows, you couldn't beat Rocky & Bullwinkle! Boris & Natasha, Fractured Fairy Tales... such good writing! Very smart show.

Does anyone else remember Beany & Cecil?

I liked The Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits, and a show called Project Terror that had scary movies like Village of the Damned. I was a severe insomniac as a child and watched scary shows late into the night.

I also like Bewitched and The Jetsons.

That's it! H.R. PufnStuf! I must have confused that and Sigmund because they were probably played back to back when I was a kid.

I forgot about Romper Room. I kept watching when she had the magic mirror and they never said they saw "Hope". It was always "I see Cathy, Jane, Robert, Julie, Bob...." Yes, I'm tramatize by that!

I was born in 1950 and I never heard of Muffin the Mule. Maybe it wasn't shown in the US.

When I was a kid my favorate shows were:

Maverick
Gunsmoke
Bonanza
Wyatt Earp
Leave It To Beaver
Combat
Dr Kildare
Superman
Andy Griffith Show
Lone Ranger
Cheyenne
Sugarfoot
Wagon Train

"De plane, de plane!"
I don't think I actually saw Kimba on TV, but supposedly the creators of the Lion King ripped off Kimba.

Shows I watched as a kid.. most of them are quite "new" because I was an early 90's kid:

Mr Dressup
Tintin
Are You Afraid of the Dark?
Kitty Cats
Babar
Mr. Bean
Rocket Robin Hood
Goosebumps
Iris the Happy Professor with the giant pink piano
Magic School Bus
Tales of the Riverbank/Hammy the Hamster
Care Bears
Art Attack (with the nice Brit.. I think his name was Neil)
Rocky and Bullwinkle Show
Doug
Beavis and Butt-head
America's Funniest Home Videos
The A-Team
Rugrats
I vaguely remember a show with Mario and Luigi

My ultimate favorites were Fraggle Rock, The Smurfs, Strawberry Shortcake, and Rainbow Brite.

And OF COURSE, Punky Brewster!

Flintstones
The Jetsons
Gilligan's Island
Bewitched
I Dream of Jeannie
All in the Family
The Bob Newhart Show
Chips
Happy Days
The Jeffersons
Lavern and Shirley
The Mary Tyler Moore Show
The Odd Couple
Sanford and Son
Taxi
The Waltons
The Brady Bunch
Welcome Back Kotter

It's funny, because these are still some of the more favourite shows that I find to watch on TV even today. I can't stand most of the trash that is showing up on TV these days so I tend to stick to watching reruns of old favourites like the above.
Are we living the same life or what those were all of mine too!!!! I also
loved Bugs Bunny, would love to watch all of those right now, but they never show it! Scooby-do, Captain Kangaroo, Bozo the Clown!

When I was really little I found a polaroid picture of Tattoo that someone had taken while watching Fantasy Island. I asked my mom who it was and she told me. I think I saw Fantasy Island a few times.. not sure where though.

Sugarfoot was the name of the show and the name of the main charactor of the show staring Will Hutchins. He was such a cutie!!! I was about 12 when it was on TV.
