The BoomBoom Generation – Remember the laughter?

Change the channel?

What television shows filled your hearts and minds growing up? Who says the advertising”Mad Men” and television executives didn’t have an agenda? As children we all swarmed around the television set and watched:

Father Knows Best, Make Room for Daddy, Bachelor Father, My Three Sons, Sky King, Bonanza, Perry Mason,Gomer Pyle, Leave it to Beaver, Rat Patrol, Dragnet, Hogan’s Heros, Daktari, M.A.S.H., the Dick Van Dyke Show, Ironsides, Rocky and Bullwinkle, Mickey Mouse, Ed Sullivan, Get Smart, Dr Kildare…

test-pattern-152459__180Do you see a pattern?

Thank heaven for I Love Lucy and then the smart-talking housekeeper, Hazel who eventually graced our screens in black and white. Psychology Today must have had a field day analyzing Television Programming gender bias. Who noticed such things? Sunday night’s Disney’s Wonderful World of Color was definite ‘Appointment TV”

Television gradually expanded and we saw: My Little Margie, December Bride, the Patty Duke Show, Petticoat Junction and the Carol Burnett Show. The early 1970’s introduced the Mary Tyler Moore Show, the Waltons, All in the Family, the Partridge Family and Bridget Loves Bernie.

And you had to laugh…

We laughed a lot at the surprising wit and double entendres on Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-in, at the Smothers Brothers, and Car 54, Where are you?, Happy Days, the Odd Couple, Mork and Mindy, Gilligan’s Island, the Bob Newhart Show, the Flying Nun and the Beverly Hillbillies.

Dreamy Genies, monkeys, monsters, talking horses ( it could happen)  favorite martians, and witches kept us laughing with: The Munsters and the Monkees and Bewitched, Mr. Ed, and I Dream of Jeanie.

Remember the laughter, smiles, giggles, groans and guffaws.

Nothing show more about a man’s character than what he laughs at” 


What makes you laugh – out loud?
