: : You know, thinking about Little Joe and his hopeless brothers; (boy have I had a slooooow week; where is this DVD version...)
: : the thing I could NEVER get past is the 3 grown men asking "Pa, Pa, what are we gonna to do now Pa".... they were always going back to Pa and asking advice; and these guys were not teenagers....
: : The other program we watched all the time was Maverick...
: : Marcia help me out here; never could figure out the lyrics:
: : Nanashuts New Orleans, living on Jacks and Queens,
: : Maverick is the legend of the West...
: : (boy, lots of legends in the West....)
: : Ok, what was that word (as I am obviously lacking in the understanding department when it comes to TV lyrics...maybe it was our family TV's speakers.....I'll talk to my Dad) Nanashuts???
: : Jo
: : (Don't make westerns like they used to!!!!)
: : And this has nothing to do with LOTM, so Rich give the post a day or two for the Trivia Queen to give me the answer...)
: You think the Bonanza sons were a tad strange? How about
: Timmy on Lassie who lived on his farm for any number
: of years, but kept falling down the well or getting lost
: in the woods? Even as a kid I wondered why Lassie just

: Let the little bugger drown! Now where the hell is my
: chewie bone??"
: Now why, I wonder, do a great number of us look back
: so fondly on these shows? Perhaps it has to do with
: the headline Doctor M read in the TV section of the
: paper this morning... " New animated show about guys
: on road promises puppet sex!" Now there's something
: to look forward to! Back to the past! Chaaaarge!!!
: Doc M
Whoa, Doc M...
I don't think I watched more than 50 of that Lassie series; and remember none of them except for that darn "lost down the well" one...must have been one of my, ha, ha, fears!!!!....loved how they talked and understood EVERY direction that dog gave (go find Timmy, he's lost, turn left at the pond, go right at the forked trail....)however,at this point in life, I was always wondering why Mr. Milner and Mr. Corbet (?) took sooooo long getting across the US on Route 66....(years and years)...sort of like Wagon Train on a V-8 engine...
OH, OH, quick, someone answer before I am banned to the never never lands....
And, no Doc M., now, I don't watch any sitcoms on the TV, unless our mentor gives us a schedule so can't comment on the sad state of affairs that make up the daily schedule...seldom look at the TV guide.
Ah! Got my tie in!!! Why did we watch and REMEMBER these old sitcoms???? The Age of Innocence.....
