I vaguely remember 'The Magician' (Bill Bixby in pre-Hulk days)...which used to be shoved on the box on a Sunday afternoon - I couldn't have been no more than eight or nine...!

The others? Totally alien to me...

I remember "The Magician" & "Nightstalker"(it's on Sci-Fi once in a while). Was the narrator guy in Nightstalker" the same guy from "A Christmas Story"? Haven't watched the new "Nightstalker".

a favorite of mine that i hardly ever anyone mention anymore is "family affair." had the wise-cracking butler and everything. cute as a button!

http://www.timvp.com/familyaf.jpg

there was also "night gallery." loved that one. it was on late so i'd have to engage in some trickery to watch it. oo! the one with the guy in the house, he kills somebody or something, some painter, and then the paintings in the house change to show the dead guy coming out of his grave and stalking up the house to get undead, zombified revenge! so self-referential, so spooky. i didn't sleep for a week.

i remember a lot of these only showed in texas. in washington they didn't show them.

vis-a-vis kukla fran and ollie -- on DC20, though, they had for a while a 50s retro thing in the 80s; two hours of dobie gillis and the patty duke show and stuff like that. pretty cool, i'd never had any exposure to those shows.

There was another show called Turnabout with Sharon Gless and John Schuck.  It was the same "plot" as Freaky Friday only it was a husband and wife who switched bodies.


FYI: Longstreet was a detective series where the main character was blind. Toma was the "insperation" for Baretta.


BTW, I do remember Kula, Fran, and Ollie.

It's American Life Television. Previously it was GTV(Good Life Television). They show 60's & 70's shows mostly. To name a few: Chico & the Man, Welcome Back Kotter, The Courtship of Eddie's Father, Combat, Gallant Men, Maverick, Kung Fu, I Spy, Man From Uncle/Girl From Uncle, Bronco &many others(Gee, I may have named some forgotten TV shows just now  :D ). They have a website. I'm sure you can find availability info there.
I have a large backyard dish and ALTV is a free digital channel with a subscription to any channel or package.

I checked the ALTV, actually ALN now(the website is http://www.goodtv.com/ )and noticed they list the satellites used for broadcast. I then looked these up at lyngsat to see which digital format they used. I don't think they use the DirectTV or DishNetwork format, which I believe is powervu.
All may not be lost though. You may be able to pick up a cheap MPEG free-to-air receiver and a used dish and watch ALN on that. This may require a little bit of learning on your part since MPEGs can be hard to get a clear signal on depending on where you live.

I used to watch a show called CBS Children's Film Festival every Saturday at noon.  Kukla, Fran, and Ollie hosted it.  The films were always about 30 minutes long and usually were an english-dubbed foreign flick about kids.

One episode, well the one I remember most, had James, a photographer, taking a photo at a football game that showed the winning team scoring a try that won the game.

I LOVED James at 15/16.  Yeah, yeah, I had a major thing for Lance Kerwin. I also remember "Mind Your Language".  They did a similar show here in the States called "What a Country" with Yakov Smirnoff but I didn't think it was as good as the orginal (and didn't last too long either). A couple of other British shows I remember are Goode Neighbors and Butterflies.

LAST WILL AND TEMPERAMENT

performed by the Frantics


LAWYER: As executor of Mr. Muldoon's estate, I have been empowered to read
Mr. Muldoon's Last Will and Testament.

HEDGE: Well, get on with it! The bars open soon.

JENNY: Oh, poor Arthur! Waah!

HANK: There, there Jenny!

RALSTON: How predictably boring.

MRS. MULROY: I never worked for a kinder man.

LAWYER: If we are all seated, I shall proceed with the reading.

RALSTON: I knew it.

HEDGE: Hah, hah, hah, hah.

LAWYER: I, Arthur Durham Muldoon, being of sound mind and body --

HEDGE: That's a laugh! Hah, hah, hah, hah...

LAWYER: -- do hereby divide up my considerable estate as follows: To my
overly emotional sister Jenny --

JENNY: Waahh!

HANK: Jenny, darling, he's talking about us.

LAWYER: -- who grubbed with her husband Hank, grubbed for everything they
could get from me and then shed crocodile tears when I needed sympathy; to
Jenny I leave... a boot to the head.

HEDGE: Hah, hah, hah, hah!

JENNY: A what ? (THUMP!) Ow!

HANK: Jenny, are you okay?

LAWYER: And another boot to her wimpy husband Hank.

HANK: (THUMP!) Ow!

LAWYER: Ah, but still, you are my sister. You have both admired my Rolls
Royce, and since I no longer need it --

JENNY: Oh, dear Arthur, he's too kind!

LAWYER: -- I bequeath... another boot to the head.

JENNY: What? (THUMP!) Ow!

HEDGE: Hah, hah, hah, hah!

LAWYER: And another one for the wimp.

HANK: (THUMP!) Ow!

LAWYER: Next, to my alcoholic brother --

HEDGE: Hey, I don't want no boot to the head.

LAWYER: -- to dear Hedge, who has never worked a day in his drunken life --

HEDGE: I'm covering up my head!

LAWYER: -- I leave my wine cellar and three crates of my finest whiskey.

HEDGE: Really?

LAWYER: And a boot to the head.

HEDGE: (THUMP!) Oh!

LAWYER: And another for Jenny and the wimp.

JENNY: (THUMP!) Uh!

HANK: (THUMP!) Ow!

LAWYER: Next, to my know-it-all nephew, Ralston --

RALSTON: This is so predictable.

LAWYER: I leave a boot to the head.

RALSTON: (THUMP!) Uh! I knew it.

LAWYER: And one for Jenny and the wimp.

JENNY: (THUMP!) Ow!

HANK: (THUMP!) Oh!

LAWYER: This takes care of family obligations. And now, to Mrs. Mulroy --

MRS. MULROY: Oh, ah, I don't want nuthin'.

LAWYER: -- who took care of me faithfully these many many years, who cared,
made me laugh, brought me tea --

MRS. MULROY: Oh, I didn't mind.

LAWYER: To Mrs. Mulroy, I bequeath... a boot to the head.

MRS. MULROY: (THUMP!) Oh!

LAWYER: And one for Jenny and the wimp.

JENNY: (THUMP!) Ah!

HANK: (THUMP!) Oh!

LAWYER: And so, to my cat Mittens, I leave my entire, vast... boot to the
head.

MITTENS: (THUMP!) Mroooow!

LAWYER: And finally, to my lawyer, who has helped me on this will, I leave
not a boot to the head, but a rabid Tasmanian Devil TO BE PLACED IN HIS
TROUSERS??? (growling...) Uhh! Huh! Huh! Huh! (panicking...) And, and, and
I leave my entire estate of ten million dollars to the people of Calgary so
they can afford to move somewhere decent

They did a follow-up

PART I : THE LESSON


MASTER: Approach student, close the circle at the feet of the master. You
have come to me asking that I be your guide along the path of Tae Kwon
Leap. But, be warned: To learn its ways, you must learn the ways of your
own soul. Let us meditate on this wisdom now. So: Ohhhhmmmmm...

STUDENT1 (Ed Gruberman): Uh, sir! Sir! (Oo!, Oo!) Sir!

MASTER: Who disturbs our meditation, as a pebble disturbs the stillness of
the pond?

EG: Me! Ed Gruberman!

MASTER: E-Ed Gruberman.

EG: Yeah, uh, no disrespect or nuthin', but, uh, how long is this gonna take?

MASTER: Tae Kwon Leap is not a path to a door, but a road leading
forever towards the horizon.

EG: So like, what, an hour or so?

MASTER: No, no, we have not even begun upon the path. Ed Gruberman, you
must learn patience.

EG: Yeah yeah yeah, patience. How long will that take?

MASTER: Time has no meaning. To a true student, a year is as a day.

EG: A YEAR??? I wanna beat people up right now! I got the pajamas! Yah
yah yah hwoom!

MASTER: 'Beat people up'...

EG: Yeah! Just show me all those nifty moves so I can start trashing
bozos! That's all I came here for! YO ASTA STA STA!!! Pretty good, ey?

MASTER: The only use of Tae Kwon Leap is self-defense. Do you know who
said that? Ki Lo Ni, the great teacher.

EG: Yeah? Well the best defense is a good offense, you know who said
that? Mel, the cook on 'Alice'.

MASTER: Tae Kwon Leap is the wine of purity, not the vinegar of
hostility. Meditate upon this truth with us. Ohmmmmmm.....

EG: Listen, shrimp! Now are you gonna show me some fancy moves, or am I
gonna start wipin' the walls with you?

MASTER: Ed Gruberman, you fail to grasp Tae Kwon Leap. Approach me that
you might see.

EG: All right! Finally some action!

MASTER: Observe closely, class. Boot to the Head! (SH-ZOOMP!)

EG (drunkenly): Owww! You booted me in the head!

MASTER: You are lucky, Ed Gruberman. Few novices experience so much of
Tae Kwon Leap so soon.

EG (quietly, to himself): Ow, oh, my head!

MASTER: Now we continue. Ohhhmmmmm...

EG: Hey! I wasn't ready! Come and get me now shorty, hah? Come on, are
ya chicken?

MASTER: Boot to the head! (SH-ZOOMP!)

EG (again, drunkenly): Oww! Okay, now I'm ready, okay, now, come on, try it
now.

MASTER: Boot to the head! (SH-ZOOMP!)

EG: Mind if I just lie down here for a minute?

MASTER: Now class, we shall return to our..

STUDENT2: Master?

MASTER: It is wrong to tip the vessel of knowledge, student.

STUDENT2: Many apologies, master. But I feel Ed Gruberman is not wholly wrong.

MASTER: What do you mean?

STUDENT2: I want to boot some head, too.

MASTER: Have you learned nothing from the lesson of Ed Gruberman?

STUDENT2: Yes, master. I have learned two things. First, that anger
is a weapon only to one's opponent.

MASTER: Very good.

STUDENT2: And secondly, get in the first shot. Boot to the head. (SH-ZOOMP!)

MASTER: You missed.

STUDENT2: Yeah. Well...

MASTER: You too shall be honored to learn a lesson...

STUDENT2: You don't have to, you know. I gotta be going...

MASTER: Boot to the head! (SH-ZOOMP!)

STUDENT2 (agonizing pain): Oyyy oy oyyyy.... Oh....

MASTER: Can anyone tell us what lesson has been learned here?

STUDENT3: Yes, master. Not a single one of us could defeat you.

MASTER: You gain wisdom, child.

STUDENT3: So we'll hafta gang up on ya! Get 'im guys!

(Master throws many Boot-to-the-head's and SH-ZOOMP's, and people are groaning
in pain)

MASTER: And now class, let us rejoin the mind to the body and gaze into
the heart of the candle of meditation.

UNISON: Ohhhmmmm....

MASTER: Very good, class.

No Cat, are you thinking of "Army Career" instead? "Boot to The Head" is also known as "Ti Kwan Leap". Royal Canadian Air Farce is a political satire show which would be too politically incorrect to run in the states. I used to watch it when CBC broadcasted in anolog.

That was Kids in the Hall

Actually, it was The Frantics . Kids In The Hall did "I'm squishing your head".

I think I have heard some of the Royal Canadian Air Farce stuff and always got them confused with the Frantics. I think they did "Dial 1 for help" and several other skits. Dr. Demento plays them a lot.

The Ghost and Mrs. Muir were played by Edward Mulhare and Hope Lange.


Who remembers Space:1999, My Mother the Car, Gettin' Together(Bobby Sherman) and Zoom (I still remember the lyrics to the theme song, the mailing address and how to speak the made-up language they would sometimes use)



Charles Nelson Rielly also played in the Ghost and Mrs. Muir. (I like the movie better with Gene Tierney and Rex Harrison).


I do remember My Mother the Car (Jerry Van Dyke and Ann Sothern), and I remember Gettin' Together-but I liked Bobby Sherman in Here Comes the Brides better. And yes, I was a BIG fan of Zoom. "Say you wake up in the middle of the night. You got an idea that out-of-sight. You jump out of bed, look around your room. You take your typewriter, pencil or pen, you write it all down and send it to Zoom. That's Zoom- Z double O-M, Box 350, Boston, Mass 02134. Send it to Zoom!"  (Please don't ask how I remember that.)

Don't know if this is the show you're talking about but there was one out of Chicago called BJ and Dirty Dragon.  BJ was the host (wore a derby and at some point I think he had a big bushy mustache) and the clay character was called "The Blob".  He would "sculpt" different faces out of the clay and add cardboard teeth and eyes and such.  While The Blob could talk it was all just gibberish, BJ was the only that could understand what he said.
There were also various puppet characters such as Dirty Dragon, the Lemon Joke Kid, Mother Plumtree, and the Thumptwangers.
Even if this isn't what you're looking for I want to say thanks for bringing back such a great memory!  I hadn't thought about this show in years.

BTW, I was just over at the BBC/America website and saw that they have all of the Emma Peel episodes of The Avengers available on DVD. I'm tempted to place an order.

As for forgotten tv shows, I loved KungFu. I think it still plays on some cable channels, but I don't get it here, but I bought the 1st and 2nd season on DVD and the 3rd season is out. David Carradine as Kwai Chang is an icon.

http://cdn.nflximg.com/us/boxshots/large/70033301.jpg

and it was pretty great! mostly commercials and PSAs from the 70s (although some look suspiciosly to be from the late 60s  ???) and pretty funny in the extreme. and a real eye-opener for those of us, like me, who were little rugrats in the 70s and remember it as a carefree time of foo-foo bunny rabbits. that was a messed up decade! with tab commercials with the slogan "be a mind-sticker"! and people constantly being berated for making bad coffee! wtf?

and the dance-party 70s t.v. remix in the end is just -- odd. i couldn't take my eyes off it.

The best After School Special I remember was called "The Wave."  It was about a history teacher who gave a lesson on the rise of the Nazis in Germany. It was based on a true story and VERY heavy. I wanted to get a copy of it but the only place I could find it, they wanted something $80 for a VHS tape.  :o  I did manage to find a bootleg copy on e-bay.

I remember that show...Here it was on late Saturday mornings, possible around 11am. The person with the big spectacles and ginger hair was the mother Im pretty sure. There was a larger blonde haird boy who kind of reminds me of Bobby from King Of The Hill.

All I remember of the theme song is the mother singing, "You just wait 'til your father gets, wait 'til your father gets, just wait 'til your father gets home" and then the boy would say, "Yeah, right." or something like that right at the very end. I LOVED that show and have been hoping it gets played on a pay TV shannel dedicated to older cartoons, like Boomerang.

hello everyone......i remember a show i used to watch on saturday morning called "run, joe, run"
here is a synopsis:


Run, Joe, Run was a Saturday morning television program that aired on NBC from 1974 to 1976. It centered around Joe, a German Shepherd in the military's K-9 Corp., and his master, Sergeant Will Corey (played by Arch Whiting). One day, during training, Joe was falsely accused of attacking his master, a crime for which the dog would be put to sleep as punishment. However, he escaped before being killed and a $200 bounty was put on his head.

Sgt. Corey believed Joe was innocent and also pursued him, hoping to find Joe before the authorities did. While on the run, Joe helped people he encountered.

During the show's second season, Sgt. Corey, having never found Joe (although he always came close), was called back to duty. Joe then teamed with a hiker, Josh McCoy (played by Chad States), and continued to help others, all the while still on the run.

However, he escaped before being killed and a $200 bounty was put on his head.

Sgt. Corey believed Joe was innocent and also pursued him, hoping to find Joe before the authorities did. While on the run, Joe helped people he encountered.

During the show's second season, Sgt. Corey, having never found Joe (although he always came close), was called back to duty. Joe then teamed with a hiker, Josh McCoy (played by Chad States), and continued to help others, all the while still on the run.
