Here's a cabin fever question plus I'm bord: What was your favorite "old" tv shows from like the 80's or earlier? Mine would be a three way tie between McHale's Navy, Hogan's Heroes, and the Andy Griffith show.

    Also Lassie, Sky King, Roy Rogers, Superman, Rifleman, Bonanza, Rawhide and many more. Seeing this list brought back many old memories. It is interesting to note how many of these old favorites featured a plot centered around guns and good shooting. Nowadays you won't find such shows. Interesting to note that in those days we had no random shootings and nowadays they are rampant. These shows always seemed to teach using that power for good.
    Wow I forgot about lassie, when I was little I used to watch it every afternoon as long as it was on.

      I had forgotten about so many of these shows, all I've watched of them was reruns though, another I liked when I was little was the Lone Ranger.

        Gary Devine: “Smokey and the Bear.” Duh.

        Wa Mtnhunter: ”Dennis the Menance.“ Anything with Mr. Weatherby.

        Ontario Honker Hunter: I was usually too busy to watch TV, as I had to follow the airwaves using only the signatures left in the air for over 356 miles to get to a working set…BUT, if I did I would watch “The Donna Reed Show.” FOXY MAMA!

        M.A.T: our favorite…I mean my favorite, show was “Sybil”

        Happy Myles: I was on safari when all the good television ships were on.

        Happy Myles: Shrews.

        Happy Myles: Shows!

        jcmesq: My favorite, shows, were, as follows, all tending towards, if I may, the type of shows, they call, courtroom drama, as such.

        Clay Cooper: I used to watch “The Rifleman” from 1000 yards away. With no optics. No lie, GI!

        Yohan: “Har-har-hardy Boys!”

        Blackdawgz: I uzzen to wach dat shew ‘bouten them flyboys in the cacki breeches…whazzit called? Oh yeah. “Blacksheepz Squadron.”

        Pray-Hunt-Work: Speaking of TV’s, can someone tell me how tall a TV is so I can build a stand for it?

        Amflyer: I don’t have anything constructive to add, but here is a poem about TV:

        MASH is the show,
        ‘Bout peninsular wars,
        Houlihan is so hot,
        Builds a tent in my drawers.

        Davidpetzal: Can I get on here?

        Davidpetzal: You are all stupid. TV is worthless. You should be shooting instead, and it’s all Hilary’s fault that you are not.

        PS: I might be more inclined to buy a television set if they made left-handed remotes.

              Magnum, P.I. was the pinnacle of pre-HBO, pre-FX television entertainment, in my opinion. As for other shows from that era, I am man enough to share with you all that I watched every single episode of Little House on the Prairie. There, I said it and I'm proud. Those Ingallses were good hardy folk.

                I think you confused "BJ and the Bear," with the trucker and the chimp, with "Smokey and the Bandit."

                  That was pretty funny. BTW I don't have multiple personality disorder; I have something just as annoying, four brothers.

                      Amazing how Annette suddenly caught a bad case of lung warts and Bobby ended up dancing with Barbra Boylan and Cissy King on the Welk show. Cubby also went to Welk for a few years then left and did well hitting licks for Spike Jones, Ann margaret, Jim Nabors, Carol Burnett, and Karen & Richard Carpenter over the following years.
