OT: Favorite TV show as a kid

What was your favorite TV show as a child? One you still remember? I just found out all Power Rangers series are on Netflix, so it brought me to this question. And mine was Power Rangers!

Nickelodeon when they still had the good shows, live shows and game shows.

Rugrats, Catdog, Hey Arnold, Rocko, Rocket Power for the cartoons.

The live/game shows like GUTS, Legends of the Hidden Temple, Figure It Out, Finders Keepers, Double Dare, Slime Time.

Those were the days. Those game shows were all on Nick GaS, which has been dormant for a long, long time now. Poor Nickelodeon Studios......long gone. They buried a time capsule there and will unearth it in 2046 IIRC since it'll be 50 years after. Makes me sad.

Those who watched Legends of the Hidden Temple will get it-

Soupy Sales. I ran home every day and had tomato soup and a hot dog with him and the gang. White Fang, Black Tooth, him opening the door to a pie in the face. Suppose this shows my age somewhat.

My favorite was the original series, too. Watched it in reruns starting about 1974, on at 4:00 on channel 4 in Denver, right after school everyday. I can still name half the episodes by the dialogue alone...

And, yes, we're older than the Rugrats / Nickelodeon crowd. My kids watched those shows!

Original trek is actually one of my favorite shows, as well, despite having not been born until well after the show originally aired. Just s great show. Only time I ever saw my grandfather (a legit tough guy who was a welder and WWII vet) cry was when, during the subsequent movies, they killed Spock.
