Lunchtime Poll

Lunchtime Poll 11/18

In honor of Little House day, and recognizing that not all of you are as batshit crazy about LH as I am, I thought I’d ask the obvious question for today’s Lunchtime Poll.  What are your favorite comfort TV shows from when you were a kid?

The Jetsons, Punky Brewster, Silver Spoons, and The Mary Tyler Moore Show. I basically just wanted to live in all of those sets (or sketches, in the case of the Jetsons). I loved Mary’s sunken living room, so posh! And Punky and whatever Ricky Schroeder’s Silver Spoon character was called had really cool beds.

The Brady Bunch, The Waltons (the earlier seasons with both Ma and Pa), The Monkees (not comforting, but the zaniness was fun, and Davy was my first crush), and of course THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW!

Although I didn’t like it as a kid I have come to lurve The Andy Griffith Show, mostly the b/w episodes. My brother is a Duke-ster, so he goto me hooked. Everyone at Puke, I mean Duke, stopped and watched the afternoon reruns.
