    When I watch Bewitched I feel and remember that 16yr old(me) laying on the couch eating tuna salad and saltines watching Bewitched after school every day!
    Does it to me every time! I am transported back in time if only in my mind! LOL I can almost taste the tuna when I hear the song start! LOL

    Anybody else have any similar experiences??

    If anyone mentions Red Skelton I remember going to bed on time and laying there trying to stay awake for The Red Skelton show to come on. About 5 minutes into it I would creep into the living room and say, "Daddy, Mr. Skelton is my favorite and I can't sleep with him on. If I'm really still can I sit on your lap and watch him?" Never missed a show. LOL

    Does the same happen with songs? Every time I hear The Monster Mash I remember being about 10 when a friend and I would take turns standing on a chair with a hair brush as our microphone singing the song. It was a favorite than and I still remember that time.

    A lot of the old shows bring back memories of a slower less compilcated time, although I was a grown up and had kids at home then. Some of the 70s and 80s music does that also.

    Star Trek - the original with William Shatner. It always played at 7 pm in Germany on Saturday evening which was church-going time. I made a deal with my mother that I would go to high mass on Sunday if she would let me stay and watch "my show." I hated those Sunday mornings but really liked the alone time on Saturday.

    Ok, I am to young to have seen the first airing of them, but Dragnet, the Mary Tyler Moore show, Dick Van Dyke and Get Smart are all shows My father and I would watch during while helping my studying my spelling tests. Sometimes I will see an old rerun and I automatically think of the word and the spelling. :lol: I actually saw a past Episode of Dragnet the other day and caught myself spelling beautiful in my head. :-D

    I used to rush home from school to watch Dark Shadows. That had to be the most low budget, worst show of all times but I loved it. I remember when the one actress's skirt actually caught on fire and "behind the scenes" people came scurrying out to put it out, seeing the wrinkles in the tarp that was supposed be the ground in the cemetery. The on fire woman didn't get hurt, she went on to be one of Charlie's Angels--the original. I don't remember her name but she was the one with straight dark hair.

    Look closely at the sets and scenery. Can you see the seams and wrinkles in the canvas tarp used for the cemetery? They just sprinkled some leave on it. When the girl's dress caught on fire she was standing in the doorway talking to either Barnabas or the wolf guy, wasn't his name Quinton? (he was the one I liked---those eyes made my young heart swoon)

    Raptureready I remember the seams and all the shadows. I also remember seeing the camera and the microphones hanging in the scenes. Bad acting but I loved watching it with mom.

    I remember that show too. I didn't realize one of the Angels was in it. I remember Barnabus and Quinton but not much else. I was about 12 I think.
    I had to go look it up! Kate Jackson played Daphne Harridge in 70-71. I havent' gone back and watched any of it so I didn't realize she was in it.

    Okay, here's a memory from the oldie! Dick Clark, American Bandstand. On 15 minutes after highschool let out. The "cool" kids stayed after school in the lounge so we could dance and watch. I can still hear the intro in my head, and see all of us trying the new steps. What a ball! PS... I'm talking when Bandstand was brand new to TV!!

    You have aged as gracefully as Dick Clark!! Last I heard ( I think last fall or so) he had had a stroke. They had a program on about these autistic twin ladies who got to visit their idol Dick Clark and he was recovering from it then.
