Patti - Some of those shows have become really iconic. Thanks for the reminder.
I'm surprised at how few of those I watched or saw only a couple of times.
I was addicted to THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. and THE GIRL FROM U.N.C.L.E. back then. And MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE.
Laugh-In, Mission Impossible, Man From UNCLE, a number of others. Of course what we watched was at least partly controlled by what my mother wanted to watch.Jeff M.
I'm mildly surprised how many I saw before they were in repeats...but, then, despite getting barely halfway through my first decade by the end of the '60s, some of these series (such as ADAM-12 and HEE-HAW...hyphenated series!) were barely started by the end of the '60s as well. Pity about misspelling the SmoBros title...
Coming from a TV watching family, I watched most of them at least a couple of times. A few spoke to the TV of the future, a few to the past. A sort of interim period, I think. And my Mom, Jeff, loved the westerns which began to decline around then.
My mother was the first one to watch Have Gun - Will Travel. She also loved shows like Checkmate. It was the comedies we wanted to watch that didn't appeal to her. I got to watch The Beverly Hillbillies because my father liked it!Jeff M.
From the examples you provide here, Jeff, she had the lock on good taste.
Your mother and mine must have been twins, Jeff. I could never get her to watch a single comedy. It has to be dramas or news shows.
A vast wasteland, saved only by "Laugh-In" and The Smothers Brothers.
Lots of fun to see these old pictures. I can think of 100 more they missed but it was a decent sampling. And this is the first time a video link worked for me in over a week. Thanks.
