I had such a crush on...what was his name? Cheyenne.

For tv shows, Bonanza, Mickey Mouse Club, Leave it to Beaver.

(for the women out there, some of the shows had real hunks--not only Cheyenne but Adam Cartwright on Bonanza, and that Troy something on Adventures in Paradise. Not to mention Tom Selleck later on.)

Well, let's see . . . I loved the Carol Burnett show (and PHXBARB: you are not alone! I still laugh so hard at that whole skit!!!)

50s, 60s, and 70s all kind of run together for me when thinking about TV shows: Star Trek (the original, of course) . . . Mission Impossible . . . Gunsmoke . . . Alfred Hitchcock . . . The Andy Griffith Show . . . McMillan & Wife . . . the Dinah Shore Show . . . Lucy . . . and when I was tiny, I was watching the Rosemary Clooney Show and The Honeymooners . . . then there was Father Knows Best . . . the Nelsons . . . Lassie . . . Ed Sullivan . . . Perry Mason . . . Bob Newhart. . . All in the Family . . . I Dream of Jeannie . . . The Fugitive . . . Combat . . . and I can't remember when the Mary Tyler Moore show was on (70s?) . . . and one of my all time favorites probably wasn't til the late 70s-early 80s - MAGNUM P.I. :-)

I agree with each of your choices although I always liked 'Little Joe' over Adam....

I have a deep dark confession to make ... here it is ... some of the shows on TV I loved included:
  • Gilligan's Island
  • McHale's Navy
  • Mr. Ed
  • The Addams Family
  • The Patty Duke Show
  • Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea
  • My Favorite Martian
  • Get Smart
  • Wild, Wild West
  • The Munsters
  • The Donna Reed Show
  • F Troop
A lot of them had such silly, stupid prefaces ... "Identical Cousins" - really ... and a talking horse. But when you're a kid it's such jolly good fun!

Of course, some where really good dramas and science fiction like Rod Serling's "Twilight Zone."

I faithfully watched the Patty Duke Show - and Donna Reed, as well.

As a little kid I much preferred the shows that featured animals - Rin, Tin, Tin, Lassie, Sargent Preston of the Yukon, etc. While I liked the character of Ed Norton on the Honeymooners I found that Ralphs threats of domestic violence struck a little too close to home and were not at all funny to me.

I didn't much care for Romper Room or later, The Mickey Mouse Club. I did like The Ozzie & Harriet show and My Three Sons. I was never a big fan of cartoons either but did like Rocky and Bullwinkle and the one with Yogi and Boo-Boo bear.

I do recall that Leonard Bernstein did a series of young peoples concerts that taught a lot about music and I enjoyed those a great deal.

And of course, Rhett DID show up . . . He had followed the gold west, too!
I hadn't heard that lumber mills made gobs of money. But during the gold rush it was the provisioners who got wealthy.

I liked/disliked I Love Lucy for a similar reason. I thought she made herself out to be just too much of a doormat. Sometimes I found it more offensive than funny.

The irony of this is that all along it was she who was running that entire enterprise!
