Through this in here too. This was the movie (great) but it was also turned into a classic TV show:

Although not a show, it notworthy to post that Paul Harvey, 90, passed.

Yup....You had to actually use you brains for most of those old shows. Not just "Chewing Gum For The Eyes"....They had some nutritional value!

I never really got into this show. Probobly because when I was young I saw an episode that flipped me out.

There was an inmate at a prison and was tryng to find a way out. Undertaker told him that the next time the death bell rang to go to the morgue and climb into the coffin with the person that had died. The undertaker would then go to the cemetary later to dig him up and he would be free. The inmate did as instructed and after what seemed to be an eternity in the coffin after being buried he lit a match only to find out that it was the undertaker in the coffin with him that had died.

Another show that is one of my favorites wasn't a 50's show but was set in the early 50's was MASH. I also have the full series on DVD plus the original MASH movie. These are a great source of comedy that you can actually watch with little kids around and not have to worry. I like to collect series of tv shows more than movies. I also have a box set of "Our Gang" or Little Rascles whichever you like to call it, and also a box set of the 3 Stooges.

Honeymmoners are definately at the top of my list. Also Andy Griffith. Mayberry was the perfect american place to grow up. Loved the little rascals. Outer limits, One step beyond, Alfred Hitchcock presents, Mission Impossible, Leave it to Beaver, 3 Stooges, Abbott & Costello, Mr Ed, My favorite Martian, My 3 sons, Wonderful world of color,(Went to my grandparents to watch it in color). I'm sure the house was heated with coal back then too.
