Remember when..

I've been doing some googling today, I wanted to find info about some tv shows I used to watch when I was a kid. I was born in the early 60's, but we didn't get to see these on tv until much later, I lived overseas and everything had to be doubled first. I think it was the late 60's or early 70's when I got to watch them. I know that by 1969 we had a tv set, because I remember watching the Apollo 11 landing on the moon. However, I never watched any of these shows at home, my grandma used to babysit us, and that's where I'd watch them (she got a tv set long before we did).

Here's a list of some of the shows. The more I searched, the more I remembered about other shows. There are still a few that I cannot remember their names, sometimes it's hard because the name got changed in Brazil. You will notice that most of them are American shows. I am including a youtube link whenever I find it relevant. Hope you enjoy going back in time! =)

  1. Wow, such a nostalgic post!
    I used to watch Lost in Space, Daniel Boone (for sure!), Land of the Giants, Daktari (obviously, I hoped I had an elephant or a monkey for a pet!), Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie, Batman and The Flintstones.
    But you forgot The Monkees! (And my favorite was Davy, the cutest!).


  2. The song, I'm a Believer, is in Shrek´s soundtrack. :)
