If you lived around a Deetroit, you had your lunch watching Soupy Sales with his buddies White Fang, Black Tooth, and Willie the Worm (sickest worm in Deetroit, Ah Choo).  You would see Soupy doing the Soupy Shuffle!

The best thing I liked on that show (Lawrence Welk) was Big Tiny Little Jr on the honky tonk piano!

Early TV, wow.! That's late fifties early sixties. Some of the shows I watched, especially on Saturday were Sky King, Fury, My Friend Flicka, Wonderama, Mighty Mouse, The Lone Ranger, Pro Bowlers Tour, and Wide World of Sports. As a matter of fact, I have a set of cassette tapes, if you remember what does were, of every single TV show beginning and ending music, probably up to the late sixties.

I loved the Flying Nun as a 12 year old in a Catholic grade school. Fantasies about nuns abounded anyway like what was under the habit that this program fed into.

Didn't watch a lot of TV, but did see a few episodes of a lot of shows. I remember Lassie (always liked dogs). Flipper. A game show called Camoflage where you looked at a picture of random lines and tried to guess the picture of what was hidden in it. Leave It To Beaver. Dennis The Menace. Roy Rogers. Kung **bleep**.

This is a really old show, taken off the air bec. it supposedly supported  racism (!) - The old "Amos & Andy" show...really funny, and MUCH funnier than any sitcom since, I think.   Yeah, there were sterotypes, but most were standard ones:  nagging wife (Sapphire), mother-in-law from the bad place, the shyster lawyer (a Mr. Calhoun) the con man (the Kingfish, whose laugh at end of show is still in my head!)..the kind of characters I still think are universal ones.   Was sorry that it was deemed negative-really; I see shows on TV now I think are much more stereotypically negative...!

I grew up watching tv!  I had Howdy Doody, Uncle Miltie, Ding Dong School, Captain Kangaroo.  As I got a bit older, Ozzie and Harriet, Leave it to Beaver, Ed Sullivan, American Bandstand (even at the tender age of 9!).  The old shows were great geared for families, clean and funny.  Today's shows depend on too much double entendres, sex and violence.  Watch Dragnet for a realistic cop show!

I grew up in Vermont and we had 3 vhannels and if the weather was bad there was no TV. We werer not allowed to watch unless it was raining out or after dinner. I findly remeber watching "The Lawrence Welk Show" every saturday night. I would sit on the step leading into the livingroom and be very excited to here the singers. I remember when Aurther would come out to dance I would also try to tap...Haha... so funny because even after I took tap I could not do it.

In 1989 I had my daughter and on Saturday night we would watch Lawrence Welk. When she went to school and the discussion was about music and she surprised her teacher with songs and singers from the 40s and big band era. I still watch Lawrence Welk with my mother (91) on Saturday only now it is on at 6pm on PBS. It still brings a smile to my face as I sing along with most all the songs. Fortunately I sing better than I tap. The tradition continues and cannot wait to introduce the music to my grandchildren oneday. So  for now I leave you with this....

Good night, sleep tight and pleasant dreams to you, here's a wish and prayer that all your dreams come true and now 'til we meet again... Adios, Orvour, Alvederzane. Good Night!
