Subject: Favorite 1960s TV Comedy

What's your favorite 1960s TV Comedy  (or 60s TV Sitcom)?
Focusing again on US TV shows.

You may select up to 5 shows to vote for.

I've actually seen at least 1 episodes from all those listed, seen the whole series for some of them.

Beverly Hillbillies
Addams Family

I picked
dick can dyke
Andy Griffith
My three sons
Courtship of eddies father
Julia



I was born in 67 so obviously I wasn't em exposed to these shows until the 70s and 80s

I will say family affair was a fav of mine as a kid.
As was Batman.  In my mid-20s I thought batman was too campy but I stared watching it again and realize the show is brilliant!

Green Acres I didn't really understand as a kid and I saw an episode when I was in Fourth grade that terrified me (bloody Mary ep - not sure why but it did  :D )
Anyway I spent my whole life hating green acres because I thought I was stupid but after taking film classes and getting a little educated on reading shows and seeing beyond the surface I found a lot of things I liked about green acres.

My favorite 1960s show was "Get Smart". Don Adams was brilliant in that show.


Other favorites are Courtship of Eddie's father, My three sons, Dick Van Dyke & Family Affair.

I wasn't around in the 60s, but based on re-runs, I absolutely loved "I Dream of Jeannie" and "Bewitched".

When we were small & got home after school, we'd watch TV and there were always reruns of 60s shows like Get Smart, Gilligan's Island, I dream of Jeannie, My three sons, The Munsters and a whole bunch of others.  Didn't watch reruns of 1970s shows because...they weren't reruns yet.

Can I pick "All of the above"?


I can't just narrow it down to 5. But Laugh-in would definitely be on my list.

Sock it to me!

There are a lot of good ones on the list but you forgot Nanny & the Professor.

Laugh-in O0

Nanny and the Professor looks like a late 60s show, but began in January 1970.

they still showed Batman Reruns when I was young so I watched them sometimes.  It usually wasn't that funny to me

Almost all Quite a bit of the humour was to laugh at them, not with them. And how silly the whole thing was.  I liked the Adam West/Burt Ward Batman series. Not something I'd buy on DVD but I'd watch it.
