On this day in TV history

Friday, September 26th, 2008

Three “classic” TV sitcoms debuted on this date. “The Beverly Hillbillies” in 1962, “Gilligan’s Island” in 1964, and “The Brady Bunch” in 1969.

I have to admit these shows are silly, some would say stupid, but I used to watch them religiously when I was a kid. Today, I can hardly stand to watch an entire episode of any of these shows (except for Gilligan’s “Shakespeare A Go-Go” with Phil Silvers). Sometimes,¬†however,¬†I can’t help watching the Hillibillies. If I’m the right frame of mind, they crack me up.

My favorites are still Andy, The Honeymooners, Car 54, Sanford and Son, and Hogan’s Heroes. And sometimes The Munsters and Happy Days, and more recently MASH and Cosby. Corner Gas, too; a new classic. Leave it to Beaver is good too, and Dick Van Dyke. What are your favorites?
