There's a couple of cartoon movies I remember watching and liking, but for the life of me I can't remember what they were called.

Cleveland TV staples Big Chuck and Little John


I remember them, in fact, I remember them when it was "Hoolihan and Big Chuck", I believe Little John was a cameraman or a director.

Back then (late 70s, early 80s), they used to play "Silent Running" once a year, and would announce it a month or so ahead of time, and even have a contest to see who could make the best models of the robots. They used to play "The Abominable Dr Phibes" once a year also IIRC.

Thank-you for all the responses. I do think they show what a variety of films we enjoyed as children. As in my case, I think many of them cannot be defined as "children's films," but yet we all turned out to be normal. Well, on second thought, I'll exclude myself from the last sentence.

Ben Hur
Miracle on 34th Street
ANY Vincent Price movie.
The Seven faces of Dr Lao
The Man in the White Suit
The Great Escape
The Guns of Navarone
The Mummy (1932)
Hammer films!

Most of the 'kid' movies (and others) listed already came out *after* I was no longer a 'kid' - technically.  These are faves from my childhood.  I would sit and watch them whenever they came on.  Every time. (And a few more that don't come to mind right now: loved war movies, Tony Randall, David Niven and Alec Guinness. Not to mention Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee, Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi!)  The Wizard of Oz was a family tradition but I cannot claim any real affection for it.  Some scenes scared the spit out of me.  For a while there, all the family/kid films seemed to be about animals dying: like there was supposed to be drama and a life lesson in each one.  Hated those.  You guys don't know how good you have had it!

No VCR's back then: it was an *event* when a movie you enjoyed was on TV at a time when you were allowed to watch!  It was a real treat to stay up late with my dad to catch a bad movie.

    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.
