Off Topic: Favorite Classic TV Shows?


Recommended Posts

Oh my gosh he's soooo cute!!!!!!

 

The only really fun shows I have found are cartoons - the Backyardigans, and Charlie and Lola. One is musical, and the other is just really funny in a very British way. Alice does like Tom and Jerry and Bugs Bunny, so there's hope.

 

sigh. I miss seriously believing in puppets.

Yeah, I loved the announcers in those days --- so rich, resonant -- ".....and Poncie Ponce!"

It brought back a flood of memories when Rich mentioned it.

> I had a rubbery LambChop puppet when I was little, with white hair and a little pink face and drawn on eyelashes, but my mom got rid of it. I was heartbroken.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You know what's frightening to me? A lot of the old people in South Florida actually look like Lamb Chop now.

I loved Popeye cartoons after school. In socal Tom (oh Lordy I can't remember his last name) Something hosted Popeye and would you believe my Mother ogled cute Tom in his tight t-shirt.

 

How about Beany and Cecil (The Seasick Sea Serpent) and Captain Huffenpuff and the Leakin' Lena...was that show nationwide or local LA?

 

Then there was Space Patrol w. Buzz Corey and Happy (was that the character's name?), I had rather a crush on Happy.

> Great memories, Bronxgirl48. Also Captain Jack McCarthy, who sent me material on Popeye for a paper I did in college. Yeah, I know, a paper on Popeye! :)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I remember Captain Jack. He had prematurely gray hair and looked very dashing. Handsome Irishman. (and a nice guy too from what you say)

Early 1960s hunkorama. Now Wally was a hunk on his own, but when the competition

was Eddie and Lumpy, that can't hurt. Speaking of hunks, he had a strange verbal tic

on the show. He would ask for a hunk of cake, okay, and then ask for a hunk of milk,

huh? Always got a kick out of that.

Beany and Cecil. Brilliant show. Sailing, sailing...............

 

Diver Dan! And Clowny the fish.

 

Weird wild stuff. But who was more weird and wild than Max Fleischer, a man ahead of his time.

 

Wally, really? I liked Eddie, he was a lot more clever than Wally.

 

I never watched Andy's gang...Froggy scared the beegeezus out of me. Which channel was he on?

I remember the original "Time for Beany" , It was a puppet show with Stan Freberg as the voice of Cecil the sea-sick sea serpent and Dishonest John or D.J. and Daws Butler as Beany and Uncle Captain...

To arlenemccarthy: Hello, Arlene, and welcome. I too remember Mary Hartline from Super Circus. I had one of her ?magic dolls? which was a 1/8-inch-thick cardboard paper doll with a magnet imbedded inside. The clothes had thin magnetic strips on the back and made the costumes stick so you didn?t need tabs like you did for other paper dolls. If anybody doesn?t know what I?m talking about, ask your Mom or Grandma; they do.

 

Back in the late 70?s she was featured on a 60 Minutes episode. There was a big flack about domestic and other service workers needing a City ID card to be able to live and work in Palm Beach where she lived. She was the widow of some wealthy man and couldn?t understand why anybody with nothing to hide would object to being singled out just because they were working folk. She was in her seventies and still had that long white-blond hair but definitely could not fit into those majorette outfits we always saw her in. Thanks for the memories!
