DoorNumber3:
I grew up watching Captain Kangaroo,Romper Room,Mickey Mouse,MakeRoom For Daddy,The Dick Van Dyke
show,Ed Sullivan,Wildkingdom,ABC Wide World of Sports,
Then Dr.Kildare,Ben Casey,Marcus Welby,The NameOf The Game,The Bold Ones,Medical Center,Rescue8~which was a precursor to Emergency.

I hold a special place in my heart for Dr.Kildare & Richard Chamberlin:
When I was 6 I was diagnosed with Epilepsy.
One of the episodes was called "Tyger,Tyger" based upon the William Blake poem.
it held meaning for me because it was about a surfer who was diagnosed with Epilepsy.
I was 8 when it aired~ it made me see what could happen if I didn't take my medicine.
I could die from a seizure.

Rescue8 was a show that was in the early 1960's~ Jim Davis who was later to go on to fame as "Jock Ewing"
was on the show~ he was already grey then!!
The show dealt with a rescue unit~it wasn't on for long.
Emergency was a better show and in colour.
Emergency was helpful in getting EMS started thru out the entire country.

I loved Flipper, Lassie and Dark Shadows.  When I got older (11-16), I loved Big Valley, Hawaii Five-O and Little House on the Prairie.

I was a classic superhero comic book geek, so my favorite shows growing up in the early 70s were Superfriends, Ultraman, Speed Racer (which I loved because bad guys actually got shot and killed), Captain Marvel / Isis, Six Million Dollar Man, Bionic Woman, Wonder Woman, and reruns from the campy 60s Batman series.

Since that was before cable and 500 gazillion different channels, I also watched a lot classic sitcom reruns on the local independent station, especially the silly ones like Gilligans Island, Bewitched, I Dream of Jeanie, and The Beverly HIllbillies.  But even as a little kid, I also enjoyed the good stuff like I Love Lucy and The Dick Van Dyke Show.

Hullaballo,Where the Action IS,American Bandstand,MikeDouglas,PhilDonahoue,

My Little Margie,ShariLewis & Lambchop.My Friend Flika,Get Smart,Man From U.N.C.L.E.
Mission Impossible, Kojak,The Untouchables,Naked City.

My love of soaps began the day I saw my first episode of Day's of Our Lives back in 1964 when I was home from
School sick~then came Dark Shadows!!
DarkShadows enabled this once scardy cat to watch anything frightening on TV!!!
I've been a loyal watcher of DAYS of our Lives,Ryan's Hope,General Hospital,One Life To Live,capitol,Santa Barbara,
All My Children,Edge of Night,Young & The Restless,DarkShadows, GHNightShift,Another World

I've watched every "nighttime soap that has aired" with the exception of "90210" & Gilmore girls.
