  1. I agree they should have,maybe seemed longer by constant reruns. Both series were tried again, sometimes with the same actors, but you can't go home again and they never worked (at least for me). new show- The city this takes place in is .mentioned in the pfal class. It also starred a group of actors that seemed to not do much afterwards, though very popular at the time. It also concerned radio which just gave it away.
  2. sure sounds like the Munsters, which along with the Addams Family lasted 2 seasons.
  3. you got it, George. I just read where Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman, lasted like 325 episodes. Then morphed into Fernwood Tonight, a mock talk show. That concept had, as they say, legs.
  4. Little House on the Prairie. Mary wasn't so lucky as to get her sight back,. I never read the books but I'm assuming her blindness may have one of the few things that actually happened. Since I know that's the answer, I'll throw out a new one. This was a late night soap opera, which was a spoof on soap operas. The star was just as dysfunctional in real life as the character she played.
  5. it was called 'Broadside", which may be the most interesting thing about the show.
  6. looks like no one's going to get this.I'll try one more clue. The actors I referred to on the show are Kathy Nolan from the Real McCoys, Sheila James, who was Zelda in Dobie Gillis, and Dick Sergeant, the second Darrin in Bewitched..
  7. I don't count Happy Days, though the argument can be made. This was kind of a female version of McHales Navy, with actors from the Real McCoys, Dobie Gillis, and later, Bewitched.
  8. I'll take a guess-The Jeffersons.
  9. new one-this was a 'game show', where the more the contestant made you pity her, the better her chances of winning a crappy washing machine.
  10. sounds like Captain Video to me. I've never seen it, but some things are just in the brains cultural encyclopedia for whatever reason.
  11. just for the record-it's Magoo.
  12. Most things seemed dorky and frankly embarrassing to me when I was in the way- still do. But the Beatles will never be dorky.
  13. this may be slightly off topic, but I've been thinking about it a lot lately. I never went in the Corps, despite being a Twig Leader, class instructor, way home 'head',wow vet, etc-the pressure was there, but I couldn't stand the thought of being told where to be 24 hours a day-and the thought of sleeping in a room with several people, and having to keep everything perfectly organized terrified me. What I've been wondering is-what happened when someone got sick while in residence. I'm sure the pressure to suck it up, believe, and just soldier on was huge-but what happened when someone was really, knock down, flu bug, puking, fever sick ? Was there even a 'third aid' office? Were sick people shown any compassion at all ? Sure, most everyone was young and healthy, but even the strongest go down once in a while-especially when you're constantly pushed, and barely getting enough sleep. I'm assuming anyone with a chronic disease, needing to take medication would not last long. I guess I've been thinking in light of the Crohns disease I contracted right around the time I left the way, and thankful I never had to put that to the test. I also wonder about simple humanity in residence. I will forever regret that I didn't cross the country for my grandmother's funeral while I was out wow. I got crap from the coordinator about leaving my commitment, and I should have just gone. Were way corps even remotely treated like real people with real lives outside the compound ?
  14. it sounded like something there was no chance of my ever getting. I was not watching shows of this nature in the 70's through the 90's.
  15. I'm disqualified because I googled it, but was surprised that this was a very popular show-I even saw it a few times.
  16. not only don't I know this, but I'm certain I never saw it-but I'll take a wild guess-the A-Team, which I also never watched.
  17. yep-Red Skelton Show it was.
  18. Clem Kadiddlehopper, Freddie the Freeloader, Gertrude and Heathcliff-that should be more than enough.
  19. Jackie Gleason at the end of his opening monologue. Bring on the June Taylor dancers.
  20. that's what I get for not reading with comprehension. I even drew a couple Bozo comic books back in the 80's.
  21. the only primary character,besides the teacher, I remember from Romper Room, was the Do Bee ( don't be a Don't Bee )
  22. the second one was a bonus anyway, so I'll reveal that it was Space Angel, made by the same studio, with the same lips thing as Clutch Cargo. They weren't sold as shows, but they were syndicated and usually included in TV stations local shows. I saw Clutch Cargo on Mr Goober in Connecticut, and Space Angel was run on a New York station in the afternoon, but don't recall who hosted it.
  23. you're right about Clutch-I wasn't thinking of Conan. The other cartoon was around the same time as Clutch, and had wonderful design by Alex Toth.
