Television Memories

Most of my childhood TV memories are contained in this video. My earliest recollections in this roughly chronological video start with Sandy Becker's "Hambone" appearance. I don't remember seeing Jackie Gleason until his variety show aired, although I'm sure I saw Honeymooners reruns by then.

True, they didn't mention F-Troop, Batman, or Get Smart, but they still showed a lot of great programs that I remember from my happy childhood. Bittersweet memories in a way, but only because those golden days of television are long gone.

Thanks for the memories.

I got rid of cable a year ago and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made! I now use a digital translator box to get free broadcasts. Thanks to digital, most stations have 2 or 3 subchannels that carry national networks. One of these is MeTV, which runs most of these old shows in this video. Check it out!
