Lagomorphs: menace or underutilized resource?

I also recall watching regularly these shows, which I have since, in a fit of right thinking, blocked from my mind:

Donny and Marie
Sonny and Cher
The Bugaloos
Shields and Yarnell


I still admit to enjoying these in addition to my first list:

The Hudson Brothers
The Smothers Brothers
Laugh-In
The Dean Martin Show


Granted, I was too young to understand much of what went on during those last three, but I still enjoyed them.

Heh. We could start a whole sub-thread on "entertainers who were given variety shows where they read lame jokes off teleprompters alternating with music performance". For some reason in the 70s TV producers thought this was a good idea, and kept using it over and over.

Am I hallucinating, or did Tony Orlando & Dawn get one of these? I seem to remember watching that one more than once, as I (blush) sort of liked their stuff.

I don't know if Laugh-In wears that well with age. It's pretty bizarre to contrast the Goldie Hawn you see later with the 18-year-old airhead from Laugh-In and her early movies. Still, there were some great comic talents that started out there.

But Smothers Brothers? Are you calling that a guilty pleasure? The Smothers Brothers were great!!! They never get old! Bizarre footnote: I've heard that they still entertain but they've switched personas, so Dick is now the dumb one. That's just not right.

Another possible hallucination: Did the Smothers Brothers have a TV sitcom where Tommy was an angel, or did I dream that?

Anybody remember Love American Style?

Sadly, yes.

How about Love Boat?

I wouldn't say that The Smothers Brothers were a guilty pleasure, just one that didn't come to me when I posted my first list. And yes, Tony Orlando and Dawn is another of those "I block thee from my brain" shows. Thanks for bringing it up again.  Lookingup

Others to add:

The Carol Burnett Show
Batman
Monty Python's Flying Circus
Are You Being Served?
The Red Skelton Show

I watch them all when they're on. I borrowed my mother's collection of COMBAT! so much, she won't loan it out any more.Mostly, I just watch Gunsmoke every day just to relax. Really upsets my girlfriend.

When in doubt, what would sgt. saunders do?

I bought the whole U.F.O. TV series on DVD and we've been watching it during dinner every evening.  The 1969 vision of what the future (1980) will be like is just awesome.   TeddyR

I'm surpised you don't hear much about the shows Emergency! and Adam-12. I grew up watching those shows and they were highly influential. Adam-12 ran for 6 or 7 years I think. I'm sure Emergency! inspired many a kid to want to be a firefighter or a paramedic. Even though these were prime time dramas, these shows even inspired lunchboxes. I had an Emergency! lunchbox in elementary school and I'm pretty sure there were Adam-12 lunchboxes as well.

My cousin had an EMERGENCY board game.  I think it was a map of a city and I remember there were little plastic fire engines that you had to move around the board to complete missions.  I also remember a Mad Magazine parody of ADAM-12 . . . I think it was called BOREDOM-12.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
