    What are some of the oldest TV shows you remember watching

    For me

    Ultraman
    Larry Smith and the puppets
    Speed Racer
    Uncle Al

    And does anyone else remember calling Time? Had to explain it to my kid the other day who couldn't fathom calling the Naval Observatory Atomic Clock
    Balls of Steele!!

    I watched Andy Griffith, The Beverly Hillbillies and Leave It To Beaver before they were just re-runs.

    Then there was Casper the Friendly Ghost and that hot little blonde witch Wendy. I later gravitated to I Dream of Jeannie (which I did), and Bewitched. Mary Tyler Moore came a little later......you may notice a trend.

    Golf is a relatively simple game, played by reasonably intelligent people, stupidly.

    Scooby Doo

    When Monday night football first started with Howard Cossell, Dandy Don, and Keith Jackson

    For those who lived in Indianapolis during the 70’s - Nightmare Theatre with Sammy Terry (pun for cemetery)

    One of my favorites - All in the Family.

    Anyone remember Clutch Cargo? I think that was the name. It was a cartoon that seemed to have human lips for the characters.

    Jonny Quest was another favorite.
    The Cool Ghoul
    Bob Shreve’s Past Prime Playhouse which was on over night. The further into the show, the more drunk Bob appeared to be.

    Hogan’s Heros was a big one. Combat came before that and wasn’t a comedy, but drew a lot of the same viewers I bet. People who lived through WWII like my father and FIL.

    F Troop and Daniel Boone (was a man!) also come to mind.

    Captain Kangaroo, Gunsmoke, Ed Sullivan. Watched Bob Shreve with my roommates on slow Friday nites at X. One of his sponsors was this hillbilly furniture guy named Cash Amburgy. Drinking cheap beer and eating pizza and watching Schoenling Bob.

    Speaking of Hogan’s Heroes, one of my best friends growing up lived next door. His parents were from Germany and his dad was a tank gunner or commander in the war. He wasn’t allowed to watch that show. For part of the war, my father was also a tank commander. For all they knew, they tried to kill each other. They never talked about it and considered themselves friends.
