This week on the Today Show they’re revisiting casts of old sitcoms. Yesterday was Happy Days (a show I didn’t watch or like) and today was One Day at a Time (a show I watched and loved). It got me thinking about all the sitcoms I loved as a kid. I know if I were to re-watch them today I’d think they were awful (well, maybe not all of them) but as a kid I didn’t miss a single episode. Without a VCR or TiVo I not only had to be in front of the TV in time for the show to start, but I had to watch all the commercials. So here’s a list of some of my favorites. What were yours?
The Brady Bunch
One Day at a Time
Good Times (loved the theme song)
Sanford and Son (another great theme song which is on my iPod now)
The Facts of Life (my dad used to say “all those kids are smart asses”)
Love Boat (where old sitcom stars go to revive their careers)
Family Affair (I even had clothes from the Buffy and Jody line)
The Carol Burnett Show (love, love, love that show)
Green Acres (loved it so much my sister’s nickname is “Ralph”)
I could go on and on, since I watched a lot of TV, but now I want to know what you used to watch. As you can see, most of my shows are 70s-heavy since that was the bulk of my childhood. So, what were your favorite shows as a kid?
