Thread: TV Shows Only You Seem To Remember

    That clip of Monster Squad brought the memories flooding back, Big Kid. I had forgotten all about this obscure show.

    Similar to Monster Squad was 'The Ghost Busters' shown in the UK in 1975 on ITV in the children's hour--on ATV at least. It was live action and starred Forrest Tucker as Kong, Larry Storch as Spencer and Bob Burns as Tracy the gorilla--in gorilla suit. Each week they were given an assignment, Mission: Impossible-style, by Zero via a self-destructing tape recording. There would be a ghost, monster or similar to thwart each week and usually the villan would be in a spooky old house or castle. Like Monster Squad it didn't last long but it was good, slapstick fun and just the job to watch while eating your tea.

    Motor Mouse and Auto Cat was a cartoon, similar in concept to Tom and Jerry if I remember correctly. I think it was shown on the BBC.

    Wait till your Father gets Home I really liked a lot. It was shown Sunday lunchtimes in the ATV region. Tom Bosley was great as dad Harry. His wife was Irma, I think, and teenage kids Chet and Alice, and younger son Jamie. Plus his neighbour, Ralph, who was obsessed with rooting out communists. It was The Simpsons for Nixon-era America. Great fun. Aimed at a more mature audience.

    I recall Soldier and Me, but not too well. I think Soldier was a Polish boy and called Soldier as his British mate couldn't pronounce his name properly and Soldier was the closest he could get to it. Seem to remember they were on the run for some reason.

    Jamie--do you mean Jamie and the Magic Torch, Zabadak, or is this a different programme?

    The mini-series, Jamie, doesn't ring any bells at all, Zabadak, so possibly it passed me by at the time.

    OTT I certainly do remember. Late on Saturday nights on ITV with Chris Tarrant and ex-TISWAS regulars John Gorman, Bob Carolgees and Lenny Henry. No Sally James, sadly. The most infamous part was the balloon dance with Chris etc dancing with only a couple of balloons to cover their modesty. Meant as an adult version of TISWAS, it always seemed to me to be less anarchic and edgy than TISWAS
