I watched Bill and Ben the Flowerpot men -- and Dr Who and the Darleks -- and, later, Steptoe and Son.

Lone Ranger and Tonto are bailed up at the head of a valley with about 10 000 warlike Indians after them. LR: I think this is it, Tonto, I don't see how we're going to get out of this. Any ideas? Tonto: Who's "we", Paleface??

And we had the Partridge Family (a favourite with my sisters who (like all girls of that era) used to love David Cassidy. It was very uncool in my group to watch it, but I must admit I had the odd perv on Susan Dey). Also...Happy Days, Hawaii 5-0, 20 000 Leagues under the Sea (which invariably had the sub rolling wildly and showers of sparks coming out of all the equipment at least once per show), Mork and Mindy, The Lucy Show, Beverley Hillbillies.... I bought a DVD with a few episodes of Beverley Hillbillies on for $1 at a discount shop not long ago. Still found it quite funny...they made 'em good in those days....(or maybe I never grew up... ;-)

If you think that England was behind the times you should have seen TV in Rhodesia (I saw all of these post 1960). Of the English TV I remember Robin Hood Ivanhoe Bootsie and Snudge Steptoe and son Dr Who & the daleks Bill & Ben the flowerpot men Of the US TV there was McHales Navy F Troop Yogi Bear Flintstones Thunderbirds (or was that English) Watch Mr Wizard Brady Bunch Leave it to Beaver there was one about some astronauts arriving back in the stone age (maybe It's About Time) Car 54 There was a canadian one with kids in a fort and also an Australian one, both of which I cannot identify at the moment

I don't know if this is such a dreadful joke- a variation of it was selected as the second funniest joke ever- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World's_funniest_joke

Being from the U.S., I should have seem most of them but we didn't have a television through most of the 60's. I had to wait and see them all in reruns. The classic, IMHO, is of course Gilligan's Island. I don't know if Start Trek counts because I can't imagine that anyone hasn't watched it at some point or other.

This has brought back all sorts of memories of TV programs I watched as a kid -- like "Champion the Wonder Horse" (another American classic -- but it was called "The Adventures of Champion" in the USA). Or what about "Flipper" and "Skippy (the Bush Kangaroo) from Australia? Did you see these also? If so, what country were you in? And do you remember any more of these classics?
