Childhood's Favorite TV Show
I loved Little House, too! It’s still one of my faves of all time. It’s so wholesome and shows how a family should treat each other.
My favorite TV show growing up was Shirley Temple. I remember it came on every Saturday morning after the cartoons and I couldn’t wait to watch. I still think to this day that she was the best child movie star. “Shirley” no one is like her today, I mean come on, “Hannah Montana” is what we have to offer our little girls today??? Big difference.
The Waltons, Little House on the Prairie, Mutual of Omaha and National Geographic specials.
The Walton’s because I always resented being a part time only child (I had a half sister who came over every other weekend) and I LOVED that Grandma & Grandpa Walton lived with them.
Little House because I wanted to BE Laura! She was a girl but she acted a lot like a boy and she got to run around the countryside doing all sorts of things, and her Ma & Pa still loved her.
I watched Mutual of Omaha and National Geographic specials with my grandparents during summer visits. It was not my favorite thing then but it brings back special memories now.
Yes, me too!! I loved watching Shirley Temple every Saturday morning. It was waaaaaaay back then that I got the notion of going to finishing school. Frankly, I don’t know if those types of schools still exist or if they’re called something else. I grew up with that one thought and dream of going to finishing school. I never made it to that type of school, but somewhere toward the end of college God gave me a “private tutor” who “drilled” and groomed me in the fine art of being a lady.
I still enjoy the old black and white shows the best.
