    Yeah, but I'm old enough to have watched the Ann Southern Show in prime time. :eek:

    My motto, don't trust anyone under 65. :D

    I was watching an old episode of Malcolm in the Middle the other day, and was surprised to see good old Sheriff Carter in a small role.

    He sounds/kind of looks like the Dirty Jobs guy... (had to look it up, Mike Rowe.. I don't think I've ever seen more than a few minutes of that, but have heard him on podcasts and I think seen Rowe in other things.)

    You've probably seen Rowe in Ford commercials.

    I've been straight all my life, so I only cared who played Samantha. Although, in all honesty, Endora could have made me think about playing for the other team.

    Aww, I like Agnes Morehead as Endora. She hammed it up so well.

    I remember having to get up and change the channel using the big, clunky dial.

    I can remember while visiting my uncle in Canada you only had the volume and on/off switch, as there was only one channel to watch. :eek:

    I remember jingling keys to change the channel.

    I also remember using an actual "clicker" remote.

    Remote? We never had a remote. I grew up watching everything in black and white. All the good stuff like Amos 'n Andy, Father Knows Best, Ozzie and Harriet, Jack Benny, Burns and Allen, Dr. Kildare, Ben Casey, and so many other shows I can no longer remember as they've faded into oblivion. I still remember having to watch Ruff and Reddy and Tom Terrific cartoons in black and white when I was a kid.

    I think the best part of those times was that we didn't have newscasters going on a rant and preaching their own opinion. They just stuck to reporting the news. How I long for the days of Huntley-Brinkley and Walter Cronkite. :(

    ...or Bounty commercials, or as the narrator of Deadliest Catch and presenter of After the Catch.

    :confused:

    A refrigerator runs 24/7 while a toaster does nothing except toast bread every once in a while.

    By the time Jesse White got the Maytag gig he'd been in practically everything at one time or another.
