Remembering the television shows from the 1960s brought me back to a time when you would run home from school to watch your favorite television shows. Our family only had one television, and I think it was a 13 inch, but the whole family would sit around at night, pop the popcorn on the stove, and watch television. This is my list of my favorite television shows from 1960s.

  1. Land of the Giants: September, 1968 - March, 1970
  2. The Mod Squad: 1968 - 1973
  3. Make Room for Daddy: 1953 - 1964
  4. Marcus Welby, M.D.: September, 1969 - July, 1976
  5. Medical Center: 1969-1976
  6. My Three Sons: 1960-1972
  7. Dragnet (remake): 1967-1970
  8. Green Acres: September, 1965-April,1971
  9. Hazel: September, 1961-April, 1966
  10. Bonanza: September, 1959 - January, 1973
  11. The Dick Van Dyke Show: October, 1961 - June, 1966
  12. The Big Valley: September, 1965 - May, 1969
  13. Gidget (Starring Sally Field): 1965-1966
  14. The Flying Nun: September, 1967 - September, 1970
  15. Petticoat Junction: 1963-1970
  16. Julia: September, 1968 - March, 1971
  17. The Courtship of Eddie's Father: September, 1969 - March, 1972
  18. Lost in Space: September, 1965 - March, 1968

The 1960s was a wonderful time for television. I really enjoyed compiling this list and I hope you will reminisce as I did and pay homage to the good ole days.

      Remember the song on Green Acres? "Green acres is the place to be, farm living is the life for me, land spreading out so far and wide, keep Manhattan just give me that countryside."

      Dick Van Dyke is my very favorite also Lucy. Imagine Lucy was popular for so many years, through all her various shows. I watched them all. How about Leave It to Beaver & Andy Griffith .. the ones with BARNEY! Do you remember Car 54 Where are You? Make Room for Daddy with Danny Thomas? Then That Girl? Oh, I could go on and on.
