Then the regular cartoons I remember were Wally Gator, Secret Squirrel (and Morocco Mole), Winsome Witch (her broom was a character), Precious Pup (and a Granny), Hillbilly Bears, Squiddly Diddly, Atom Ant, Touche Turtle (and Dum-Dum dog)... I'm not sure I can remember more that those, which is more than i thought I could! They were all along the lines of Top Cat.

    I loved Little House On the Prairie but eventually it got worn out and the later ones didn't seem as good somehow, probably where they started really going away from the original books written by the real Laura Ingalls-Wilder.

    As you can see I was pretty much of the generation raised by the television set!
    Banana Splits ! I loved danger island ( oh, oh chongo!) and the cartoon where the family shrunk themselves in a dune buggy. There was also a bit now and again that showed the entertaining traffic cops directing the cars in an amusing way…loved that.

    I used to like Bewitched and The Munsters a lot, all as repeats when I saw them. My brother liked Get Smart more than I did.

    I liked those adventure type shows like Land Of The Giants, The Time Tunnel, Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea (we used to say bathtub), and of course Star Trek. Also finding an Outer Limits or The Twilight Zone was a great thing. Basically anything that was 'different' would be of interest, and I'm still like that.

    My brother liked various American police, detective and lawyer shows that were just a lot of people standing around talking to me at that age. One called Adam-12 I did like though. They were two officers in a car on patrol, like half a Z Cars, and there was a similar show named Emergency with two paramedics in a fire department vehicle. Hawaii Five-O I'd love that great opening and then mentally fall asleep, not be able to follow the story and switch the channel.

    I suppose it'd be rude not to give The Partridge Family a mention

    To name but a few.
    Watched all those, plus have fond memories of The Wild Wild West (TV series, not the parody steampunk movie) and Project UFO.
