Your favorite shows as a child

My youngest son and I went with a friend and her children recently on an outing. The friend had Gilliagans Island in the DVD player and my son loved it. I loved this show as a child/teen and was thrilled to see that he too enjoys it. Sure miss those wholesome shows. I'm going to surprise him with some season DVD's. I also loved the Waltons, Little House on the Prairie to name a few..... He even loves my favorite cartoons Scooby Doo and Tom & Jerry.

What are some of the shows you loved as a child.

My favorites were Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie, The Twilight Zone, The Monroes, Gunsmoke, Gilligan's Island, The Flintstones, The Jetsons, Brady Bunch, The Partridge Family, Love American Style, and After School Specials. As a little older teen I loved The Waltons, Little House on the Prairie (now buying the DVD sets of those two), Father Murphy, Sunday Night Mystery Movie (which included Columbo, McLeod, McMillan and Wife, and later Hec Ramsey, and Quincy M.E.). I'm not sure if this came on during my teens or just after, but I also loved Highway to Heaven.

You are making me think of more! Galloping Gourmet, I love Lucy, Dick Van Dyke, Leave it to Beaver, The Munsters, Addams Family, Ozzie and Harriet, Hee Haw, Beverly Hillbillies. You'll probably never believe it, but I actually did spend a lot of time outside, playing! Looking at my list, it's hard to believe! LOL Of course most TV watching was in the evenings.
