I also watched the Channel 8 Morning Movie so I grew up with an appreciation for classic movies such as Casablanca, Treasure of the Sierra Madre, The Boy With Green Hair, etc.

All this was pre-kindergarten.
I remember Mr. Dress Up and The Friendly Giant (look up, waaaaaay up )

I think my favorite was the original Get Smart series with Don Adams. Very campy now, but it made me laugh my head off when I was a kid.

I also used to like The Beverly Hillbillies, The Carol Burnett Show, Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In, The Dean Martin Comedy Hour, The Bugs Bunny Show and a lot of other stuff I can't remember right now.

I like Get Smart and F Troop, great shows. I still watch the Hillbillies if it's on.

Are you my long lost twin? That's exactly my lineup, with the addition of Sledgehammer and Greatest American Hero of course.

Tour of Duty opened with Paint it Black, which is what got me into the Rolling Stones - ah that brings back the memories.

Me too! Awesome..... I remember that I had been recording ALL the episodes on a VHS tape then our house was robbed, including the VCR with the tape in it. I was so upset about it. That show was awesome.

The original Dark Shadows was so bad that it was great.

As for the 3 Stooges, my father told me many years ago to never marry a woman who didn't like the Stooges and hated camping.
