Here's an obscure one that quite possibly nobody will remember:
Thanks for all of the posts. Yes Greenacres was a cute show ( the pig was funny too ). Another old TV show from way back is " You Bet Your Life " with Groucho Marx. AndyClifton do you remember who was in that series that you showed the photo of ?
Speaking earlier of people like Groucho showing up on TV in the early years another show came to mind. Dean Martin had his own TV show ( and a good one ) but later he also hosted the Dean Martin Roasts. If one want to see a variety of Stars from years ago one needs to check out these Roasts many of which are up on Youtube.
Yes, Angel was created by I Love Lucy alum Jess Oppenheimer, and starred Annie Farge (that last name pronounced as 2 syllables, a la the French) as the title character, with Marshall Thompson (later to star in Daktari) as her husband. Also on hand were Doris Singleton (who had played Carolyn Appleby opposite Lucy) and Don Keefer as Doris' husband. The show was sometimes described as "Ricky Ricardo with a French accent," and was indeed fairly cute in places. There are btw a few full episodes up for viewing on YouTube.
My generation's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle:
Thanks for the info AndyClifton. Somehow I had missed that " Angel " series years ago. The " Daktari " show was very popular up here and I liked to watch it also. Another series that came to mind recently was the " My Favourite Martian ", the late Bill Bixby was one of the stars of that show.
The original intro for The Outer Limits:
I loved Daktari when I was a kid. That and Flipper! lol
The show was actually at first going to be called that...but then they deemed that that was too scary (in the era of the Cuban Missile Crisis), so they changed it to OL.
With apologies if I missed a post where this show has already been mentioned but one of my favorites was Wild Wild West with Robert Conrad. 20 something years ago while living on campus in college I remember part of our routine late night was watching Star Trek then Wild Wild West... then study... then go to bed..lol
I used to go to bed, then study (heehee!).
i can still remember the name ross martin :-)
There you go! I havent seen that show for at least a decade... thanks chubby!
Thanks for all of the recent posts. " Flipper " is another show that was quite popular up here, I also liked " Wild Wild West ", good plot-lines in that one. Then of course we come to the late Robert Stack as Elliot Ness in " The Untouchables ". Any remakes that they have tried to make of that show pale in comparison to Stack's performance.
Any other performance of Stack's pales in comparison to this one
That is absolutely a classic... and Im a man of faith. LOL Too funny!
Thanks for the posts. I was at one time used to seeing Robert Stack on TV each week so I tend to think of him mainly from his role there. Of course he had other roles as well but to me he is Elliot Ness lol.
On Mission Impossible, I thought Martin Landau was replaced by Peter Graves (brother of James Arness of Gunsmoke fame).
Mr. and Mrs. North, Sea Hunt
Nah, Leonard Nimoy replaced Martin Landau, while Peter Graves replaced Stephen Hill (the DA on Law & Order).
Thanks for the recent posts and also for the photos, we are getting more great old shows there.
