Tra La La, Tra La La La

I'm a child of the '70's so I grew up watching The Flintstones, The Brady Bunch, The Monkees and lots of others. I have this vivid memory of being at a neighbor's house eating a pb&j sandwich with one of my friends and watching this show. Does anyone else remember The Banana Splits? I've asked my brother, my parents and a few of my friends but no one else seems to remember it.

The reason I thought about it today was because Curly Girl was watching Tom & Jerry (another one I watched!) and when it was done I heard something else come on from the other room.

"Mom! I don't like this show! Can I watch something else?" she asked.

I went out to see what it was and there it was after all these years! A blast from the past! I was so excited I said to her "Oh, we have to watch this! I used to watch this when I was little!"

"I don't like this show!" she said. Then she changed her mind when the Mr. Man show came on.

So that was my trip down memory lane today. Now I have to send the youtube video to my family to prove I wasn't just imagining things!

What were some of your favorite shows as a kid?
