Classic TV Shows

Here's a loving look at the spooky good TV shows of years gone by.


Absolutely love these old shows and this is a favorite. Even though it was the 1960's Samantha was a free thinking and strong woman. Darrin may have thought he ran the show but it was always Samantha saving the day. It may get a bit silly but is always fun to watch. They even appeared on The Flintstones.


 The Munsters

It had all the classic monsters in a friendly package. Again, we have a strong woman and husband with a few screws loose. The best part is they honestly don't see where they are any different than anyone else. Maybe those humans are a bit odd but they never treat them that way.

They also have a cat that sounds like a lion. That leads us to...

The Addams Family

They had a lion named cat. A kooky family who must have hardly ever mingled with the outside world. Did the kids go to school? Morticia and Gomez's relationship is wonderful and sweet. Uncle Fester is creepy and fun. Loved it when Morticia would say "Mind if I smoke?" then cross her arms and her body would start to smoke!

The Flintstones had neighbors named The Gruesomes. Look familiar?

I Dream Of Jeannie

Jeannie was so cute in her little pink outfit. As I get older the whole "yes master, anything you say master" is a bit much. You will see some eye rolling while I watch the show. But it's just a sign of the times and does not take away from the fun of the show. Besides, a very young JR Ewing is such fun to watch.

The Twilight Zone

It doesn't get much better than this. Great stories, great actors and great entertainment. These shows only get better with time. Rod Serling was a genius and left an amazing legacy of work. There are too many classics to mention them all but a good one that comes to mind is..."I'm talky Tina and I don't like you very much". Ah! Creepy dolls.
