About

TelevisionWeek Executive Editor Tom Gilbert joins our roster of bloggers with this forum all about classic television, where anything from "Leave It to Beaver" to "Malcolm in the Middle" is fair game for discussion. Reunion specials, DVD releases of classic shows, vintage commercials -- anything that's ever been telecast is the hot topic here.

Some Ephemeral Moments

March 27, 2007 2:15 PM

Not all TV can be timeless, of course, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it is otherwise without value. TVParty.com, a great site for fans of classic TV, has edited together a few choice echoes of the past that may pleasantly jog the memories of folks of a certain age.

If you remember the original NBC peacock, S&H Green Stamps, Dobie Gillis, Captain Kangaroo, “That Girl” and when a colorcast was special, then enjoy!

S&H Green stamps! Ugh how i remember licking those horrible things and pasting them in books, and when you had licked yourself dry and collected 4000 books you could get a free cuckoo clock or something ... many memories stirred by that quick montage. always liked the Capt Kangaroo theme. I think it was a British piece called "Puffin Billy," about a train, but I could be completely wrong. Tom Gilbert knows whereof he speaks and speaks whereof he knows. HUH? You know what I'm saying; he appreciates things that need appreciating. The past is still there. All we have to do is visit it.
