Off Topic: Favorite Classic TV Shows?


Recommended Posts

CeneMaven: Thank you for the Jellybean clip. I don't remember him and I thought I'd seen all the Van Dyke episodes. He was kind of cute but not the attitude. I'd not have worked for him.

 

The is becomming my favorite thread as I'm constantly learning about something new or meeting up with something old. I too remember General Hospital's beginnings and appreciated the photos. Soaps are now a vanishing breed as even As the World Turns is terminal and most people think Days of Our Lives is too. I stopped watching a long time ago, real life is even more fascinating.

 

I also watched the Match Game clip with "Cooko, Fran and Ollie". I know that woman must have been embarrassed but seeing everybody else so cracked up was a hoot. Keep them coming!

I bet that woman didn't realize at the time that something like youtube would be around now to preserve her embarrassing moment for generations to come. :)

 

 

As for Soaps I used to be a pretty big fan of Days of Our Lives in the 90's, something I can't say I am very proud of. I remember I watched until my favorite couple (Hope & Bo) got married. Once that was done I decided I better stop watching before they break up again & the whole vicious cycle starts over again. ;)

*Frank Grimes* I enjoyed a lot of those too as a little kid and I'm a little girl. :P

 

Speaking of *Muppet Babies* that was the show where I first learned about the African Queen. Scooter and Piggy imagined they were Bogart & Hepburn on the African Queen.

 

Do cartoons today make any references to classic films? I wonder!

I am not sure about today's cartoons but I always enjoyed The Muppets because they assumed parents would watch with kids and there were just enough grown up jokes in there to keep us happy. One of my favorite bits from when my kids were little was from "Sesame Street" and they did a spoof on The Beatles "Let It Be" with a bit called "Letter B." It was great because they spoofed it so well that I got it and my kids learned enough of the point even though the underlying bit was way over their head.

 

Sir Francis:

 

Some of those I don't even remember and I am older than you. That is quite a list.

I still watch those. You want to make something of that?

 

I want to add the Tales of Beatrix Potter, as well. I have those on DVD. Love them!

I like animals to LOOK like animals in my cartoons.

I don't mind that, but when they start resembling nothing animal, vegetable or mineral it bothers me.

Honey West is a show I wish some station would show. Now I believe I love the show but I hadn't see it for years and maybe I believe I love it only because of my teen crush for Anne Francis (that mole really got me!).

 

But the show was only one for two seasons (or was it only one?), and thus it makes me wonder how good the show really was. The plot or acting wouldn't of matter to me back then!

And Crawford always ended the show with some piece of wisdom:

 

"Leave blood at the Red Cross - not on the highway."

 

"Remember - a careless driver isn't driving his car - he's aiming it."

 

"Circus clowns are funny - but not when they're on the road."
