Anybody remember Andy Devine in "Andy's Gang?"

"Pluck your magic twanger, Froggy."

How about Soupy Sales?

Andy's Gang I never even heard of. I guess I'm too young to remember the Soupy Sales show but do recall him seeing him on Hollywood Squares or somewhere like that.

Yes! Finally somebody who recalls the golden age. I still remember watching Soupy's "White man speak with forked tongue" routine. And how about

And how about



Never heard of Adventures in Paradise. However, some of my friends watched Rin Tin Tin but I never got into it. Arguments over which was the better show, Rin Tin Tin or Lassie were frequently seen and heard. Sometimes Old Yeller came up too.

When I was around 7th or 8th grade Where the Red Fern Grows was my favorite book. Read it many times.

"Adventures in Paradise" was about "the schooner Tiki III, which sailed the South Pacific looking for passengers and adventure". Sort of a "Route 66 afloat" with a boat instead of a Corvette. And since that covers land and sea transport, we might as well include airborne travel.... anybody else remember "Sky King"?

On a side note, since you brought up Lassie, in the late 80s I met June Lockhart (we were partners in a croquet match which is a whole story in itself). She had some great stories about her time on Lassie. She could also swear with great gusto whenever she missed a shot. It was really weird hearing those 4 letter words coming from Timmy's mom.

People who grew up in Los Angeles probably remember Boss City. I barely remember it, it was a local music/dance show on channel 9 - KHJ. I think dj Sam Riddle was the host. There was this hot blonde named Kim or Kam something. Holy smokes she was hot. I remember The Doors were on the show once, or maybe just Jim Morrison, it was a long time ago. Maybe early 60s, mid-60s? I dunno, it had to be mid-60s if the Doors were on it.
Don't believe anything until it is officially denied.

We should take guesses on who the nuker was. I am torn between face and mission but I think I will have to go with mission.

I watched a couple episodes of Diver Dan the other night on YouTube.
The barricuda wasn't nearly as frightening as I remembered him being as a kid.
