    McHale's Navy, Combat!, The Desert Rats, Batman, The Addams Family, Gilligan's Island, Wild Wild West, Branded!, The Lone Ranger,  Zorro.  And the short lived Green Hornet.

    OH! and how could I forget the Red Skelton show.  The first time I ever heard a triple entendre joke that I understood and my parents didn't. I laughed so much I started to hyperventilate.

    Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

    -Scooby Doo (and most of the spin offs except the modern newest one)
    -Courage the Cowardly Dog
    -AAHHHHH! REAL MONSTERS
    -Rugrats (the original, not weird teen one)
    -Blues Clues (hey it was actually good even if made for babies :P I only liked the original actor though)
    -The Magic School Bus (hey it was good ok dont judge :P)
    -Cat Dog
    -Wild Thornberries
    -Dexter's Laboratory
    -Pinky and the Brain
    -Spongebob (but I still like it :P)
    -Pokemon (the original with Ash)
    -Ren & Stimpy
    -Invader Zim (so short lived :()
    -Xfiles (hey its not a cartoon!)


    And I'm probably missing some. But those are the ones I watched the most any time they'd come on. Most of those would be VERY controversial today, even more than they were back then. And some I still watch sometimes. Courage is still amazing, still love scooby doo...I still like spongebob like I said up there and what person doesn't like xfiles lol

    I've been so saddened by the crap networks now show on Saturday mornings. All of them live with actors and labeled "E/I", for "Educational" and "Informative." In other words, "propaganda."

    Why can't we let kids be kids anymore? :shrug:

    Yea, I graduated high school in 1981 :)

    A lot of the shows on my list can be seen MeTV or Heroes and Icons, now. My childhood is now in syndication :cry:

    Born 1987. Very thankful for the cartoons I got to watch as a kid in the 90's and early 00's. I'm obviously biased, but I consider it the golden era for Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network. Heheh, some of those 90's cartoons (especially Ren & Stimpy), you can't get away with that stuff today.

    I'm a Web Designer in an online company that offers these dog training collars which are one of the most useful tools used for training. Primarily used to correct bad habits such as barking, digging, and chewing, a training collar can transform a misbehave dog into a well obedient dog.  Sesame Street, of course. :)

    Oh man! I forgot a hole lineup that NBC used to run in the 70's. It was their "Mystery Movies" that aired on Wednesdays and Sundays. They rotated a bunch of "police shows" like MacMillan and Wife (had a huge crush on Susan St. James), McLeod (with Dennis Weaver), Columbo (with Peter Falk), Heck Ramsey (with Richard Boone), Banacek (with George Peppard), and about 10 others that ran here and there.

    Here's the Wikipedia link.

    Damn you, Amathe!

    Now I'm recalling Sunday Evenings as my family watched Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom (with Marlin Perkins and his buddy, Jim) and then "The Wonderful World of Disney", which usually showed a Disney movie or featurettes.

    I watch too much TV! Watching Buck Rodgers on MeTV I was reminded of the old "Battle of the Network Stars" annual show in the 70's. Those were always fun to watch and the swimsuits didn't hurt, either :eyebrow waggle:
