No one has mentioned Dark Shadows! I can remember running down the street after getting off the school bus to make it home in time to watch! Most of my other faves have already been mentioned. One thing I find sad is the lack of theme songs these days. We sang those silly songs all the time. I guess Gilligans Island would be the ultimate memory. My friends and I would play different characters and set up our own stories to play make-believe around the neighborhood. If we weren't Gilligan's Island we were Huck Finn characters! What memories!
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

Yea, we would do that to jabbur.... all except we acted out the Godzilla and King Kong movies. I remember I was always Rodan... the terradactyl (sp?). I always loved being the monsters with wings! I hated when King Kong would win over Godzilla.

I loved Top Cat, Kimba the White Lion, and George of the Jungle! Also Tennessee Tuxedo, Bullwinkle, and the Saturday morning Looney Toons cartoons that included Daffy Duck, the one with the sheep dog and wolf (one of them was Sam and the other Ralph) who fought all day and then clocked out a the end of the day, Pepe LePew, Taz, etc. There was also a cute one for awhile with a little sheep who would cry out, "It's the woolif, it's the woolif!"

I never saw Land of the Giants as a kid, but my husband bought the whole series and we have been watching them.

There was a show I loved on Saturday mornings that had a similar name. Land of the Lost.

I almost wrote this one down and then forgot! That was the only "soap" my mom or I ever watched. It was so campy that it was great!

Dark Shadows.................. I've had a thing for vampyres since I was in 2nd grade. I never really got what that show was about back then, but I loved the way they'd cover their bite wounds with a scarf.
How can we sleep while our beds are burning???

can't remember the name of this one, but Grocho Marx hosted it, he would mortify or make fun of the contestants, I thought it was really funny..
