What are your top five favorite television shows when you were a kid?
1. Little House on the Prairie
2. Donny and Marie
3. The Brady Bunch
4. The Facts of Life
Who didn’t love Little House on the Prairie? I still watch it. My favorite episode ever, of course, was Sweet Sixteen when Manly finally looked at Laura as something other than his young friend. I may have the episode memorized, but it still makes me giddy 😀
Donny and Marie were my ultimate favorite growing up. I could not miss an episode. My father only ever let me watch it at his house once and that was out of pity. My mom, sister, and I were riding our bikes from Mom’s house to Chuck’s (my father). About a block or so after leaving the house, I remember taking my hands off the handlebars………and then I fell asleep. I kid you not. I did not wake up until I was around the corner from Chuck’s house, and that was only because I’d ridden my bike into the back of a parked truck. Skinned up the whole side of my face. But, on the upside, I got to lay on the couch with an ice pack on my face and watch my favorite tv show of all time. The things we do in order to watch good tv, hm?
I was in love with Peter from The Brady Bunch. I loved the rest of the family too, but Peter was it for me. I was smitten. I don’t really watch this anymore, but sometimes I’ll catch a rerun now and then. But I loved it enough back in the day that I ran away from Chuck’s house one night because he wouldn’t let me watch it. Went to Mom’s. She didn’t let me watch it either.
Was there any teenage girl in the 80s who didn’t watch The Facts of Life? Blair, Tootie, Natalie, and Jo. They were my girls, and Mrs. Garrett was an awesome caretaker for them. I wish they still showed reruns of this ~ I’d watch it everytime.
I always watched classic tv at night before I went to bed. That’s how I met Hazel, the maid. I loved this show. Hazel was a spunky domestic goddess and I looked forward to seeing her everyday.
