  1. #8,9,11 and 12 I have never heard of – I remember the early days of the Mickey Mouse Club but probably stopped watching it by the late 50’s – I’ve never seen Gilligan’s Island, Green Acres or the Beverly Hillbillies, tho of course I have heard of them. I have vague memories of Sea Hunt… My brothers and my father liked Rocky and Bullwinkle, I don’t think I did. But I was a fan of Dobie Gillis…

  2. Nope to #8, #9, #11, #15 & #16. I definitely watched the others. I wouldn’t have necessarily classified shows like Gilligan’s Island or Beverly Hillbillies as kids shows though…

    Those shows are all still great fun to watch!!

    1. In Australia, l remember watching Gilligans Island when l was about 7 so that would be 1970, and the Hillbillies probably the same age so 1970 🙂 Yes, they are great to watch.

  3. I have a greater appreciation watching the Beverly Hillbillies as an adult. It’s my kind of humor. The writers must of had so much fun with it!
