TV Show Delights

Daily writing prompt
What TV shows did you watch as a kid?

I’m showing my age, but as a kid we had less selection and less time options for viewing! No replay devices nor online tv show delights!

I think it was a blessing. While there were less options, they seem to have been better ones. Today so much noise causes everyone to want to be louder than the rest… in so many ways.

Casper the Friendly Ghost taught me how much empathy I have and also how much I love animals. I also wanted to bring Casper home and take care of him. Instead, I got an Emerald the Enchanted Witch doll, complete with castle, and plenty of room for Casper.

Scooby Doo, of course! I loved to follow along and hate on certain characters for being gross and loving the animals most of all. IF ANYONE KNOWS WHAT EPISODE HAD A CHARACTER NAMED MARNA PLEASE LET ME KNOW! I can’t remember much, but it seems there was a mummy or something walking slowly saying Marrrrrnaaaa… LOL

Any and all holiday specials… I adore the Heat Miser. I don’t like sad Christmas movies, so please never, ever, say Nestor to me. I don’t need to be made to feel things, so I try to skip the drama.

All that Glitters (1977)

The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

Perry Mason, but NOT AS THEY AIRED.

I Dream of Jeannie, of course! Seeing that as a kid, it was amazing and I still remember being so worried about what in the world they were going to do to get out of whatever mayhem, madness, etc. that I knew would unfold every episode. Same with Bewitched, but I hated that neighbor too much for it to be 1st.

Captain Kangaroo, and I loved that Dragon puffin away! Also Schoolhouse Rock, Happy Days.

THE PINK PANTHER! Loved the theme song and quickly learned it as soon as I had a flute in my hands!


BUGS BUNNY (and GOSSAMER)!! I loved Bugs Bunny for regular reasons, but most of all because he always won! No loser Charlie B here. THEN he did lose, but it was perfect. Two others called him for help and he was in the same predicament! I truly think a lot of my sarcasm was taught to me early by Bugs Bunny. I still giggle when I think of Bugs Bunny giving Gossamer a perrrrrmanennnnnnnt. I felt bad for Gossamer, so that’s why he’s in here with Bugs Bunny at NUMBERS 1.
