3. Highway Patrol 1955-59.
4. Have Gun Will Travel 1957-63
Then some years later...
5. The Prisoner 1967-68



With respect to Howdy, when Bob Smith suddenly discovered a nostalgic interest in the show, in the 1970s, on the part of the Peanut Gallery generation, he started a career of live shows on college campuses. Which led, in 1976, to a second, not so good, syndicated kids series, which last around 100 shows. Samples of both series are available on dvd.

I worked with an AF officer who grew up as a neighbor of Bob Smith, in New Rochelle New York, playing with his kids, in the period when Bob Smith was forced to broadcast from the basement of his house, following a heart attack. This was the period when Buffalo Bob's "brother" Bison Bill was a guest host in the studio, and (IIRC) when Gabby Hayes also began to guest host the show.

Got a couple of signed pictures from Buffalo Bob and Howdy. Howdy is two years younger than me.

I used to watch Peter Pan show in 1960:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0054176/

Peter Pan was actually an actress named Mary Martin. Tinker Bell was lovely, too.

I am now reading a book Peter Pan in Russian. :)

I have said that, myself.

Okay, what age range are we talking here? Because at one point I watched shows that I'd be embarassed to admit to now, on the Gilligan's Island level of programming.

After that, I liked MASH a lot. The original Star Trek was always a staple too.

I didn't set any limits except "younger life" but I'm most interested in the 1950's-60's range since that's what I remember as a child. I gather that you are slightly younger than I am.

Slightly, yes. In 1969 I was still only 7 years old, so my taste didn't count for much.

But I can say this: I am a big Dick Van Dyke fan. I always thought that was a great sitcom.

That explains why you wish to join an army. I'm way too old for that. Fighting at that level is for young people. I graduated from College in 1969.

You must be older than I. I enjoy listening to the programs from the 30s, 40s, and 50s now but I was a bit young to groove on even the 50s radio programs.

If you mean me, I think I am. I well recall listening to shows at the very end of the 40s and all through the 50s, to the extinction of network radio, with the death of Johnny Dollar and Ma Perkins.

OTOH, I look quite youthful, I am told. As compared to Highlander, for example.
