I spent today browsing old tv series all because
of spending time with my family with christmas.
Because sometimes it happens while
doing the dishes talking about last week mobile phones
and music we suddenly walk the memorylane of childhood.
this time about the tv, Only 2 nets. Black and White.
Childrens series on wednesday afternoon
and sunday early evening fighting with dad not about the remote
because we had none. But soccer on two or our series on one.
Like catweazle, thierry the la fronde and floris and sindala,
The rest of the days we used to play outside with the neighbourhoodkids
designing our own stories pretending being floris or any other caracter from the series.
Wish to share a youtube clip of Floris the blond knight a very young
Rutger Hauer we were all mad about.
I am curious about you, what kind of series you used too watch as a kid

Cool show! I'd never heard of it before. Rutger Hauer
was really something back then!

Here in the United States in the 60s-70s, we
watched Sesame Street, Electric Company
(both shows for kids), and when I was in my
early teens, I loved Blackadder, Fawlty Towers,
Faerie Tale Theatre, etc.

Ooooh, I love old sitcoms.

My daughter, Pria, watches Disney XD and Disney Channel A LOT.
I like watching cooking shows because I want to cook more than enchiladas, quiche, and pasta.
Sometimes our dog, Mikayla, takes the seat and watches some TV, one time she even watched the NFL, she wouldn't let me change the channel. LOL
My hubby almost watches nothing on TV.

I remember coming home from school and watching Passe-Partout. Later, we had Sunday nights watching Ed Sullivan...oh and Jackie Gleason - The Honeymooners. We had the only television in the village for the longest time so when Hockey Night in Canada came on, the living room would be full of Dad's friends coming over to watch the game! Yes, that was really living it up...grew up in a really small town, village really, so tv was a treat reserved for Sundays and one show after school...

Oh my gosh! Rutger Hauer is one of my favorite actors! I used to tease my husband that he and Rutger could be twins (it was true - scary true how much they looked alike). He has passed away but every time I see Rutger on TV, it brings back all the memories of how much my hubby is missed so thank you - you brought me a lovely Christmas present!

Remember whispering "please let it be Fantasyland"? We got tv when i was 10 yrs, and was allowed to eat cereal in living room while Roy Rogers, HopalongCassidy, and the Lone Ranger was on, then neighborhood kids would ride our bikes around pretending they were horses. 4 yrs later, it was a must to watch American Bandstand, classmates and i used to visit the show, but we would usually sit in the bleachers and look at Justine, she seemed so sophisticated, lol.

Thanks for bringing up the Rifleman series, Goofy!
Anyone else remember the Rifleman Toy Gun ?
THis is embarrassing, but heck, it happened sooo long ago:
My sister is 4 years older than me, and when she was 12, Mom had to take us shopping for her first bra.
I was very jealous, and wanted a bra, too ! I was 8 & very much a tomboy.
My dad made me an offer ~ I could get a bra....OR....the new Rifleman Gun that was all the rage.
Of course, I chose the toy gun, and thought I was such a bigshot !

The Red Skelton Show and the Danny Kay Show were my favorites.

My dad loved Klem Kaddlehopper and collected every sad-faced clown he could find, paintings, figurines, magnets, ornaments, you name it. And he got a signed painting from Red Skelton (Red was a brilliant artist for those who didn't know). It was his most treasured position.

What is this TV thing of which you speak? I seem to remember some sort of machine in the den that had pictures on it and you needed a mouse to change locations, but hubby always wanted to hold the device, so now it is lost

ha ha Joanie, you are younger than you think remembering a mouse to change locations
the first one i remember had a button for on/off and 2 buttons to change locations. so stand up push button 1
because button 2 had sports most of the time. Sit down wave your hand trying to remove someone in front of tv pushing button 2
stand up push button 1 sit down.Pillowfight

When my mum was in the room she was theTV button boss
No pillowfights then. we all watched with her High chapperal and Bonanaza.
Sometimes I was allowed to stay up late and watched
with her the very scary The Avengers, one of her favorite programs.
Or the less scary and handsome the Saint

were probably "hiddum up movum out"

Pandie1 - your avatar looks like Loretta Young, coincidence?
Sophia - Little Joe didn't speak Dutch? How disappointing.
Does anyone remember the title of show that had someone trapped in a big bubble on the water, believe it was from UK like Avengers
Goofy - Was Rawhide the one with James Arness

I remember so many of those shows!

And now for a Canadian moment, any canucks out there remember The Beachcombers? Don Messer's Jubilee (my daughter's dance teacher actually made his dancing tv debut on that show...)? How about Wayne & Shuster? We laughed ourselves silly watching those 2 guys...of course there were the kids shows - The Friendly Giant and Mr. Dressup, Chez Helene as well...ah memories!

But now I feel old thinking about how long ago those shows were on...

No I think James Arness was Gunsmoke - Rawhide was Clint Eastwood (obviously that dates me but I'm not telling lol).

And The Flying Nun and The Patty Duke Show and Gidget . . .

A few years ago I watched the old Prisoner series. I really loved it. I just recently saw the new one and well, not so much.

I remember mr. Dressup and the friendly giant with rusty the rooster. I always thought rusty was a little obnoxious and That girl puppet on Mr. Dressup was pretty obnoxious too. I remember (although this is not canadian) at a very early age staying up late and watching Night Stalker. Needless to say it had a profound affect on my psyche. There were more than a few times my teachers didn't let me read out my stories in elementary school.

BOY!! Talk about a walk down memory lane. Thanks so much! We ddn't get tv till I was 12. But it was still black & white. A few of us went to a friends house. He had the "color screen" anyone remember that. A plastic film to put over the tv screen. Three colors. Blue at top for sky- red for skin- green for grass. Really looked dumb when watching cartoons. But it made a color tv. lol. I rushed to see Mighty Mouse. The coolest dude to handle the villians. After we got our own tv I couldn't wait to see Ricky Nelson. & Father Knows Best. Can't remember her name but she sang Johnny Angel. Also Zorro! Of course the cowboy shows were the tops. Singing included. Tried telling my grands about them, they looked at me like I was crazy! Maybe I am-- but what a wonderful way to be. Thanks for the Memories.! (another one)

Oh -- that reminds me of the Gene Autry Show (he sang I think) and the Lone Ranger and The Roy Rogers Show where he and Dale Evans sang.

Where oh where did all these great shows go? All that is on now are stupid comedies, crime drama or legal shows (don't get me wrong - I love the Mentalist and The Good Wife and the CSI series) - but still - a good cowboy show like Bonanza or Gunsmoke or the Rifleman or something would be a refreshing change. Or something like Sea Hunt or something based on the movies Logan's Run or The Island - anything would be a good thing. lol

The last good cowboy series I remember was Paradise. It was a weekly show with Lee Horsley & Amelia Lawson. 1988-1991.
(I looked the dates up lol) I thought it was great and sorry they took it off the air.
Now decided I wanted to find this show on DVD. Found other old westerns I remember.
Does anyone remember: Cheyenne, Have Gun Will Travel, Laredo, and Branded?
