    Battle of the Planets and Speed Racer in the morning and Benny Hill at night. What more could a six year old want on TV? Certainly not Mom watching Dallas.

    And TV dinners. Of course, this was pre-microwave, so they had foil on top. Nothing like being raised on processed food.

    <tearing up> Good times, good times. </wiping away tears>

    Excuse me, I feel a need to go get a Hungry Man from the fridge.
    It's ALL about Starblazers man! (amazing how those incredible graphics and deep storyling have become ... somehow... less when I watch it now)

    I'll bet dollars to donuts that you took that field trip around Christmas time. My class took the same field trip. Of course, this was at a time when kids actually played outside after school. Kick the can, Ghost in the Graveyard, doorbell ditch...Good times, good times.

    Speed Racer rocked. And Kimba the White Lion. Then back to VHF for Dragnet. A few years later I got to stay home from school to watch Neil Armstrong walk on the moon.

    Yeah but the best thing was that on the UHF channels after 10:PM, Benny Hill came on and you could catch some topless chick comedy sketches. Other than that they just played old westerns...and what kid wanted to watch that?

    He had to walk barefoot to school over razor blade road and across rubbing alcohol river.

    Hadn't you discovered fireworks? (or did they go in the toilet as well?)

    Jeez, I didn't think they had running water in your childhood days.
