TV Memories from the past

I was an only child and while my parents loved me very much...they didn't spend tons of time hanging Dad worked two jobs and my Mom worked part-time and took care of the house. Both of them were usually tired when they were home...soooo after dinner instead of playing a game or going for a walk we would plop down in front of the TV. 

So many of my childhood memories involve television shows from the 1970's and early 1980's. Whenever I get a chance I still tune in to Nick or TV Land and enjoy reliving my favorite shows. I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorites with you;)

1. All in the Family
2. Dallas
3. Welcome Back Kotter
4. Alice
5. Fame {the TV series}
6. Love Boat
7. Fantasy Island
9. The Cosby Show
10. Roseanne
11. Happy Days
12. Laverne and Shirly
13. Donnie and Marie Show
14. Knots Landing
16. The Jeffersons
17. Good Times
18. The Courtship of Eddie's Father
19. Family Affair
20. The Brady Bunch

There so many other favorites out there...Right now on TV Land they show "All in the Family" twice a night...I have been recording them all. It always is such a surprise to find myself remembering little details from my childhood when I watch this show!!

What are some of your favorite TV shows from the past? Please share!!


  1. I loved Happy Days and Laverne and Shirley. Those were my favorites.

  2. Fun post. We probably watched too much tv at my house too, but it was family time. I loved many of the shows on your list. And some others. We loved The Muppet Show, Bob Newhart, Greatest American Hero, Barney Miller, The Jeffersons, WKRP, Hulk, Mork & Mindy, Taxi, Different Strokes, The Facts of Life, Threes Company. I played Starsky & Hutch and Charlies Angels with my cousins. We watched Chips and Hill Street Blues and Cheers. Cosby was a favorite, of course. The list could go on and on. Fun memories!

  4. Almost all of these make my list, too. But not Dallas or Knots Landing because they came on too late! :-) (I've never heard of The Courtship of Eddie's Father or A Family Affair, though.) My sister and I watched a lot of Dukes of Hazzard, Three's Company, Bewitched, I Dream of Genie, Facts of Life, Different Strokes, WKRP...boy, when you list them all out, it sure seems like we must have watched TV ALL the time!

  5. So many great TV shows have been mentioned! As much as I wish I didn't--I do love TV (it can be such a time drainer). I loved Happy Days, Mork and Mindy, Facts of Life, and the Cosby show. I can hear the theme to so many of the shows just by reading the names. Fun memories. Fun post!


I appreciate your thoughts and ideas...they inspire me!! I will be visiting you soon. Have a CREATIVE day!!
