I am not that old but growing up "way up north" we only had 1 channel and that was the Canadian channel. If you didn't like hockey you had best find your self a hobby on the days of hockey night in Canada.

Does anyone know who the Friendly Giant or Mr. Dressup were?


You bet I do. Being from the Falls you forgot to mention that we got Sesame Street in English/French (rather than English/Spanish), Glen Campbell and Romper Room.

Ah, the days when I WAS THE REMOTE ("Boy, get up there and switch it to channel 3")

Don't forget The Tommy Hunter show.

Benny Hill was pretty cool though.

That illness must have affected your head too. Now you're just making up names. Shocked

I have to agree with SB -- the Simpsons are the funniest show on TV.

How can you beat "Streetcar! The Musical" ? When Marge is in a community theater production of "A Streetcar Named Desire?" And the lead actor sings to her:

"Stella, oh Stella,
You make me yell-a,
You put me through heck-a,
STELLA!!!!"

Oh man!! It's been on forever for a reason people! : )

So I was feeling bored and wanted something to humor me today.
When I went to the grocery store and paid for my items today, I asked the younger lady at the register if she knew who Roy Rogers was. Laughing

Ohh my.... It took me 5 min to try to explain to her who he was. The funniest comment by her was... Does he live around here? Finally I just had to tell her to ask her Dad. Laughing

I like looking at my dad's Roy Rogers comic books (they're still in good shape!)

Dad also has a Howdy Doody marionette w/the box...he doesn't let me see that too often!
