Remember The 60's

Updated on November 20, 2017

Television Shows of the 60's

There seems to be focus, and attention given to the decades of yester-year. Remembering different decades can mean different things to different people. I listen to my dad often talk of the old days, and I think to myself Lord here go again!

But, then I really thought about it, and I said uh I guess those were the years of great movies, memorable music, adventureful books, and awesome television . Here in Illinois we now have a two station solely dedicated to classic television. It pretty much the only channel I watch. Ok--take a stroll with me.

  • Gunsmoke
  • Jack Benny
  • Have Gun Will Travel
  • Bonanza
  • Dennis The Menace
  • My Three Sons
  • The Flinstones
  • Rawhide
  • Alfred Hitchock
  • Perry Mason
  • Ed Sullivan Show
  • The Untouchables
  • Candid Camera
  • The Real McCoys
  • The Red Skelton Show

Alfred Hitchcock is best known for his famous directing of "Psycho" during the 60's, it bacame known for being the first horror film with a psychological storyline.

Sensational Comedy

Janis Joplin - A Legend Gone To Soon


She was the perfect icon for success in the late Sixties:

Joplin fit no standard of beauty.  Joplin displayed

the ability to wear a sensuality that mirrored a

movement which rejected societal standards by

creating its own. Janis Joplin arrived in San Francisco,

in 1966, the year before the Summer of Love, post-Beat hippie. Young

people flocked to hear her sing searching for identity, reason,

or just simple acceptance. Janis Joplin of legend set the

standard for the blues for female singers.  Janis' father, worked at

the Texaco refinery and the Joplins resided comfortably.

October 4, 1970, four years after she left Austin, Janis Joplin overdosed

in her room at the Landmark Hotel in Los Angeles.

Jimi Hendrix, died two weeks earlier. Jim Morrison would died within a year.

She is, forever, a raw iron soul.

Snap Shot of American History of Cartoons

In the early days comic strips were published exclusively as weekly features in the Sunday newspapers. The term "comic strip" in its now refers to a syndicated newspaper feature that appears daily in a single row of three or four panels, together with other comic strips that form a page. There is noted research as far back as 1892 of comic strips appearing in American newspapers. In 1907 Bud Fisher created the first daily comic strip with his Mutt and Jeff.

The effect of comic strips on the public with "Buster Brown" fashions early in the 20th century. Then later came "Peanuts," "Doonesbury," and "Garfield" products; many comic strip characters made the transition to television, film, and the theater through animation. Animation opened door to a whole to world for comic strip being developed in cartoon characters.

History of Cartoons

The Irish rising of 1798 contributed to cartoons. Striking drawings by English cartoonists portray the rebellious Irish as savages, but then - rather swiftly - as fundamentally decent, if somewhat obtuse, people. More than a quarter of a century later, when the emancipation question was again pushed through to the front of public attention after O'Connell's electoral victory in Co. Clare, a Williams cartoon shows Wellington kissing the Pope's toe, while Peel holds the Crown so it can be extinguished by the Papal tiara. Wellington and Peel ("Orange Peel", he was sometimes nicknamed) where certainly not crypto-Papists, and they accepted emancipation most reluctantly as a political necessity; but such cartoons suggest that the government's eventual decision was fraught with great political risk in Britain.
