    Well, I'm a quite youthful 55, only three of them I wasn't sure of.

  • LisaRose

    Not quite sixty, two years to go. I got all but one and 14. I remember the Alka Seltzer guy, but not the name. I remember watching Red Skelton, Fredie the Free loader. I most remember his seagull jokes though. The Lone ranger was before my time, my family didn't get a TV until 1960.
