Nickel: Upstairs Downstairs was a must-see for me on Masterpiece Theater. I thought it was better than Downton Abbey.

HU-1786558043, I love Masterpiece Theater's intro, it made me feel so classy for watching what was basically a soap opera :-) (My other post was the opposite end of the spectrum!)

We got rid of Dish and started streaming about 2 months ago. So many free channels! And old shows. I have been watching Hill Street Blues, Naked City, and Johnny Yuma, the Rebel. Already seen all the original Perry Masons (except season 6 and 9 which they don't seem to show), and all of the Gunsmoke and Rifleman shows. So much fun!

I still want to know what is the show of Richards with the 2 guys wearing aprons. The first one he posted.

Maire_Cate, I was listening to one of my Jimmy Buffet albums last night and this morning looked up Gardner McKay since JB referenced him more than once! I had no clue about him or his TV show. An interesting character!

bengardening, that was a show called "I'm Dickens, He's Fenster". That's John Astin on the left, Marty Ingels on the right. I just barely remember the show, but not whether I enjoyed it!

Elizabeth Lars: Is that The Ann Sothern show?

The Ann Sothern Show came later, with almost the same cast. This is from the earlier show, Private Secretary. These shows were mainly about women manipulating men instead of vice versa. The boss only thought he was in control.

'bengardening, that was a show called "I'm Dickens, He's Fenster".'

Correct.


" ... remember the show, but not whether I enjoyed it!"

As far as I know it only ran one season so probably not enough did.

Personally, I think I found it worth watching one time but once was enough. :-)

Since noone tried to guess mine I will tell who it is. It was a kids show that was broadcast out of Sioux Falls SD called Captain 11. I thought maybe someone who was in that area would know it. I am from ND and when I moved down here to SD people would talk about it and I never had even heard of it. So I had to ask what they were talking about.

The Courtship of Eddie's Father is a wonderful movie, with Shirley Jones and Glenn Ford, directed by Vincente Minnelli. The title song for the TV series is by Harry Nilsson.

Anybody know this one?

I had a huge crush on the guy on the right. He sort of resembled Paul Newman with long hair. I clearly had many crushes on TV stars when I was a kid.

I remember I liked Here Come The Brides because Bobby Sherman was in it - another crush.

bragu -- yes :-)

carolb -- Alias Smith and Jones. I liked Pete Duel better, but now that you mention the Paul Newman resemblance... I loved Bobby Sherman too -- so cute!

Ah! I remember Cleo the Bassett Hound. But I had to look up the title - it's The People's choice. I don't remember anything about the show - just the dog.


Raee - now that you mentioned Jimmy Buffett and Gardner McKay - I had to look up that reference. The show ran from 1959 -1962 and I guess JB watched it when he was kid too. McKay did lead quite an interesting, adventurous life.

Don't know the first one of Annie's (possibly Have Gun, Will Travel, although I think there were moustaches in that), but I do remember The People's Choice.

Here's another we used to watch:

This show also had a spin-off show:

not as popular as the first.

Lars, I believe the first is December Bride, the second - Pete and Gladys.

Annie: Yours was High Chaparral. As for the other one, I seem to recall Jackie Cooper sharing billing with a basset hound, but the title escapes me.

HU, you got December Bride and Pete & Gladys correct. I liked both of those shows as a small child.

I'm not sure I ever saw High Chaparral. I did not watch westerns much except for when we visited our grandparents in West Texas - grandfather was a huge fan of westerns (especially Gunsmoke) and raised quarter horses as a hobby. He had other horses as well, and I especially liked the palomino he had when I was four and which he used to take me with him on it. He liked trading horses and riding on his ranch, even though it was not a working ranch.

Chloe - I recognise Bob Conrad, Connie Stevens and Troy Donahue, but no idea about the show.

Isn't it funny how we all seem to have certain programs familiar to us, but completely unfamiliar to others? I don't think it's age, but perhaps it is, along with location?

Carol, it's actually Troy Donahue but easy to think Tab Hunter. I loved watching the show just to see Connie's different straw hats. I think my mom finally bought me one. :-)

I think you're right about location factoring in with some of these.

Hawaiian Eye. I didn't realize that Robert Conrad was in it. I only remembered Connie Stevens.

Is that Jimmy Olsen on Superman, Lars?

P.S. This is a fun topic- thanks Judy!

P.P.S. I fixed my previous post - I knew that wasn't Tab Hunter but I couldn't remember Troy Donahue's name and had to look it up.

Carol, yes, that is Jimmy Olsen from Superman. I got to meet one of the Lois Lanes at a comic book festival in L.A. - not the first LL, but the second one. The second one is more famous for the role, as the first one did not last long.

Mdln, is that from Kukla Fran and Ollie? I do not remember a man being on that show - only a woman, and my memory of it is very dim. The main thing I remember from that show is the Nestlé Chocolate commercial.

I remember seeing Troy Donahue on the cover of teen magazines that my sister's friends had more than I remember Tab Hunter, but I did like Tab Hunter better.

If you remember the Art Linkletter Show and the segment Kids Say the Darnedest Things, Art would frequently ask children which celebrities they would choose for their parents. I really wanted to be on that show and tell Art Linkletter that I wanted to have Tab Hunter for my father and Nathalie Wood for my mother. I did not even realize at that age that Tab and Nathalie had gone on studio dates together or that Tab Hunter was gay. I finally did meet Tab Hunter at an autograph party in Hollywood when his autobiography came out. When I was a bit older, I wanted Jayne Mansfield for my mother - or Gina Lollobrigida.

Here's yet another show I used to watch with my mother:

Yes to The People's Choice and High Chaparral.

And just for Lars because he keeps guessing Have Gun Will Travel...one of my favorite westerns! That was Richard Boone...

Of course you had to suspend belief that back in those days, he could get from San Francisco to wherever in a flash....it only ever took one scene!

And the theme song was wonderful...
