What are some of the best 1950's , 60's , 70's , 80's & 90's Television Shows there ever was ~

  1. Seinfeld is a sitcom that aired on NBC from 1989 to 1998 set predominantly in an apartment block on Manhattan's Upper West Side, the show features a host of Jerry Seinfeld's stories with his best friend George Costanza, former girlfriend Elaine Benes, and neighbor across the hall Cosmo Kramer.
    Seinfeld, the "show about nothing," gradually grew into an enormous hit and was the archetypal friends-hanging-out series of the 1990s. Most stories were about life's trivia, waiting in line, forgetting where your car is parked, throwing away someone's prized TV Guide. Seen once in a while were Jerry's parents, Helen and Morty, George's folks, Estelle and Frank (who were as neurotic as he was), and Newman, an overweight mailman who lived in the building. [​IMG] NBC

With so many head of cattle to look after, the riders often ran into trouble, including lack of water, anthrax, wolves, ghost riders, and of course, cattle rustlers.

    Theme Song Lyrics & Opening Credits
    Rawhide theme song's lyrics were written by Ned Washington in 1958. It was composed by Dimitri Tiomkin and sung by pop singer Frankie Laine.

    Rollin' Rollin' Rollin'
    Keep movin', movin', movin',
    Though they're disapprovin',
    Keep them doggies movin' Rawhide!
    Don't try to understand 'em,
    Just rope and throw and grab 'em,
    Soon we'll be living high and wide.
    Boy my heart's calculatin'
    My true love will be waitin', be waiting at the end of my ride.
    Move 'em on, head 'em up,
    Head 'em up, move 'em out,
    Move 'em on, head 'em out Rawhide!
    Set 'em out, ride 'em in
    Ride 'em in, let 'em out,
    Cut 'em out, ride 'em in Rawhide.

    One show I forgot to mention, but watched often, is the Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts. It was hilarious!

  4. Dean Martin was very talented ~ Singer and a great Western Star …… especially in John Wayne, Ricky Nelson, Walter Brennan and Himself ~

    What a great movie! I'm a big John Wayne fan too. Sons of Katie Elder is another good one with Duke and Dino.

    Loved Gunsmoke and Bonanza.

    I also had this vague recollection of a really cool western with a sci fi feel but whenever I mentioned it to somebody they thought I was crazy.

    Then, lo and behold, Will Smith stars in "Wild Wild West" and I wasn't crazy.

    How did I completely forget about The Flying Nun? When I was around 4 years old (1967), I remember having a crush on Sally Field, lol.

    At the same age, I also remember liking the opening and closing credits of Petticoat Junction. I liked the girls (even at that age), and old trains like the one shown were an obsession of mine.
