Sounds like an interesting list! My husband has told me about the Avengers and I've seen the Bev. Hillbillies in reruns -what a hilarious show! I love Granny Clampett!
I thought the whole regular cast of the Beverley Hillbillies was marvelous. Producers and writers experimented more back then. The Beverley Hillbillies was panned by the critics when it first came out. Television audiences loved the show. Go figure.
Yes, I remember Have Gun Will Travel...loved it, and Bat Masterson, "He wore a cane and derby hat...they called him Bat..."and the Beverly Hill Billies...great stull, and Avengers with John Steed and Mrs Peel. Skippy I could take or leave. Memories.
I remember Bat Masterson, too. Show was based on a real lawman of the west. One difference between the television Bat and the real Bat is the real one carried a baseball bat. How about Casey Jones? Remember Casey Jones and the Cannon Ball Express?
Yes I remember Casey Jones too. wasn't the actor who played him later the Skipper in Gilligan's Island, Alan Hale?
Yes, Jodah you're right about Alan Hale. I reckon Casey Jones was a better show for him but I did enjoy the Howells on Gilligan's Island. Thurston Howell III was played by Jim Backus. He was also the voice for the near-sighted Mr. Magoo.
Do you get ME TV? Beverley Hillbillies, 6:30 AM; Sat. or Sun., all day, is western day; and GPB and/or PBA show(s) some Brit shows 7:00-7:30 PM (and on) weeknights and/or weekends.
Sorry I don't get ME TV. I live in Australia. I have some episodes of the Beverley Hillbillies on DVD.
Check out TVLand(Australia), I believe they have Skippy, B. Hillbillies and check for others too.

Excellent shows. I have Time Tunnel and Rifleman in my collection. I haven't been able to lay my hands on Rin Tin Tin.
Another I remember is Circus Boy starring Mickey Dolenz from the Monkeys fame as a child.
I don't believe Circus Boy made it to Australia. If it did I don't remember seeing it. My sisters were fond of The Monkees. Hey! Hey! Legend has it that a Monkees' mother invented liquid paper.
