    Well since you said "childhood" shows....I'l have to go back further than Andy Griffith.

    I grew up in the mid fifties being born in 54'.

    I liked Felix the Cat, Casper the Friendly Ghost, ......and Ed Sullivan in the early sixties when I stayed all night with my grandparents. They watched Lawrence Welk too. I don't remember my age when Huckleberry Hound , Quick Draw Magraw, Deputy Dog, and the rest of that gang was around.

    I used to love the Sidney and Marty Kroft shows:

    HR Puffnstuff

    The Bugaloos


    Land of the Lost

    I also watched The Archies, Groovy Goulies, Star Blazers and the Electric Company (which was way more "edgy" than sesamy street, lol!), The Hillbilly Bears, Top Cat, Atom Ant.

    When I was a little older I would watch She-Ra, Voltron, ThunderCats,

    when I would get "sick" on Saturday mornings and couldnt go out in service I would watch The Littles, Alvin and The Chipmunks, and Duck Tales

    The Puppy's Great Adventures

    OMG, Nos! That picture you posted brought back some memories!

    I was also an 80s Saturday morning cartoon addict. My faves included the Hanna Barbera Cartoons like the Flintstones and Wacky Racers. I also liked Captain Caveman, Scooby Doo, the Littles, New Shmoo, and the one ugly dog who had to wear a doghouse on his head. Remember that one?

    I also lived for the 11:am weekend story special featuring kid-friendly stories based on books like the "Soup" series (Robert Newton Peck) and others. What a nerd I was (am).

    I miss the good 'ol days! BTW, I grew up on Sesame Street and the Electric Company. Woohoo!

    Little House on the Prairie, had to see it every Monday night. My dad gave up Monday night football so I could watch it.

    We didn't get to watch much on Saturday mornings. Only on the rare occasion when we didn't go out in service. I can't remember what we watched.

    In the 1980s, before my kids were born, I used to like to watch Pee Wee Hermans Playhouse

    So did we! Steve decided we had to have the video library. I stopped it after about ten videos, two episodes each PLUS the special Christmas episode. I just crack up when we watch them with the kids and see Laurence Fishburne as Cowboy Curtis...BEFORE Pulp Fiction.

    Captain Kangaroo..I absolutely loved that show, especially when he read stories. (mabye that's why I've been a librarian for the past 33 years...)

    Rin Tin Tin (yo-o-o- Rinny!)

    Circus Boy (remember Mickey Dolenz who would later tun up in the Monkees?)

    Beany and Cecile the sea-sick sea serpent

    Gerald McBoing Boing

    Mighty Mouse (here I come to save the day...)

    Rocky and Bullwinkle, Boris and Natasha, Dudley Do-Right

    Tom Terrific and Mighty Manfred the Wonder Dog

    Yikes...I think my age is showing.....

    I watched a show in Charleston, South Carolina called Happy Rain. She was a Native American woman who showed cartoons and played games. We lived around the corner from her, and I was horrified when I found out it was all dark make-up. She wasn't Native American after all.

    My sister and I were on a cartoon show called Bozo the Clown taped at Channel 2. I was so damned shy all I did was look at the floor when he tried to talk to me.

    I loved Deputy Dog, Pink Panther, Mighty Mouse, Quick Draw McGraw, and that cartoon with the black crow who just hopped and caused all kinds of trouble. I can't remember the name. And those bears who called each other maw and paw.
