Write a Post on Your Favorite Television Shows from Childhood
I love this prompt. However, as a big lover of tv shows, I couldn’t keep it to just 5. So…….I decided to do it in different genres. This list will be all shows I watched and were heavily into during my pre-teen years. Today will be sitcoms and then I think I will do a top 5 for dramas/action oriented and science fiction as well as one for cartoons. Oooh the cartoons are going to be very difficult to do. Anyways, here is my list in no particular order:
One of my favourite memories is about watching the sitcom Gimme A Break which ran from for six seasons from October 29, 1981, to May 12, 1987. Although I do not think I have watched the last 2 seasons, this show is big in my family’s memories and, along with the second show in this list, form the first 2 sitcoms that I have ever watched. The series starred Nell Carter as the housekeeper for a widowed police chief (Dolph Sweet) and his three daughters – played by Kari Michaelsen, Lauri Hendler & Lara Jill Miller – as well as the adopted son played by Joey Lawrence (seasons 3-6). I also had my first ever innocent crush at the wee age of 6 or 7 on Kari.
Mind Your Language is a British sitcom that premiered on ITV in 1977. It was produced by London Weekend Television and directed by Stuart Allen. Three series were made by the London Weekend Television between 1977 and 1979 and briefly revived in 1985 (or 1986 in most ITV regions) with six of the original cast. The series shows people of different countries with different social background, religions, and languages existing in the same classroom, learning English as a foreign language.
Silver Spoons is an American sitcom television series that September 25, 1982, to May 11, 1986The show focuses on the wealthy playboy Edward Stratton III, and his relationship with his young son Ricky Stratton. Ricky was the product of a brief marriage between Edward and Ricky’s mother. Edward was unaware that he had a son until Ricky comes to live with Edward at the outset of the series. The main cast stars Joel Higgins as Edward, Ricky Schroder as Ricky, Leonard Lightfoot as Edward’s attorney, Franklyn Seales as Edward’s business manager, and Erin Gray as Edward’s personal assistant and later love interest. Jason Bateman plays Ricky’s best friend over the first two seasons of the show, replaced by Alfonso Ribeiro over the remaining seasons. John Houseman plays Edward’s dour and disapproving father.
Small Wonder is an American children’s comedy science fiction sitcom that aired in first-run syndication from September 7, 1985, to May 20, 1989. The show chronicles the family of a robotics engineer who secretly creates a robot modeled after a human girl, then tries to pass it off as their adopted daughter, Vicki. The series turned out to be a surprise hit, specifically amongst the kid section, as many channels belonging to different nations witnessed while re-running the show. Owing to its popularity in some countries, the show had to be dubbed for different languages.
You Again? is an American sitcom television series that aired for two seasons on NBC from February 27, 1986 to January 7, 1987. It was based on the British show Home to Roost. Jack Klugman stars as Henry Willows, a man still embittered from his divorce ten years earlier, who had made no effort to see his son Matt (John Stamos) during that time. Henry had become fairly comfortable with his life as a supermarket manager and was not really looking to make major changes to it when Matt arrived looking to stay with his father, whom he hardly knew anymore. Matt was an ill-mannered but quite attractive youth who was very popular with the girls. He drove the gruff Henry almost over the edge, but of course in the end familial ties conquered all differences in sitcom tradition.
Honoroble mentions : Different Strokes, The Jeffersons, The Cosby Show & The Two Of Us.
American stand-up comedian and actor Gilbert Gottfried passed away yesterday at the age of 67. His persona as a comedian featured an exaggerated shrill voice and emphasis on crude humor. His numerous roles in film and television include voicing the parrot Iago in Disney’s Aladdin animated films and series, Digit LeBoid on PBS Kids’s long-running Cyberchase, and Kraang Subprime in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Gottfried was the voice of the Aflac Duck until 2011. He appeared in the critically panned but commercially successful Problem Child in 1990.
From 2014 until his death in 2022, Gottfried hosted a podcast, Gilbert Gottfried’s Amazing Colossal Podcast, which featured discussions of classic movies and celebrity interviews, most often with veteran actors, comedians, musicians, and comedy writers. Gilbert, a documentary film on Gottfried’s life and career, was released in 2017. At age 15, Gottfried began doing amateur stand-up in New York City and, after a few years, became known around New York as “the comedian’s comedian.” In 1980, Saturday Night Live was being retooled with a new staff and new comedians; the producers noticed Gottfried and hired him as a cast member for season 6. Gottfried’s persona in SNL sketches was very different from his later characterization: he rarely (if ever) spoke in his trademark screeching, obnoxious voice and never squinted.
In the late 1990s, Gottfried met Dara Kravitz at a Grammy Awards party. They were married in 2007 and had two children together: daughter, Lily, and son, Max. Gottfried was raised in a Jewish family, but he said on his podcast that he did not have a bar mitzvah. One of his sisters was Arlene Gottfried, a New York street photographer who died in 2017Gottfried died in Manhattan from recurrent ventricular tachycardia, complicated by type II myotonic dystrophy, on April 12, 2022, at the age of 67.
Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy is a 1955 American horror comedy film directed by Charles Lamont and starring the comedy team of Abbott and Costello. It is the 28th and final Abbott and Costello film produced by Universal-International. Rounding out the cast are Marie Windsor, Michael Ansara & Dan Seymour. This is the last film that Abbott and Costello made for Universal Pictures, although Universal released a compilation film of clips from their films, titled The World of Abbott and Costello in 1965. The day after filming completed, Abbott and Costello arrived in New York City to ride on the first float of the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Two bumblers get mixed up with Egyptian grave robbers and a murderous mummy. Pete and Freddie (Abbott and Costello) overhear a Cairo archaeologist’s chatter about discovering a legendary mummy and decide to apply as chaperons for the corpse’s journey to America. But when they arrive at the archaeologist’s home, he has been murdered, the mummy seems to have have disappeared, and to top it all off, the boys become owners of a sacred medallion that holds the key to the location of an ancient buried treasure that many would kill for!
On the Breast of a woman named Gale
was tattooed the price of her tail
and on her behind
for the sake of the blind
was the same information in braille.
There once was a man from Bel Air
Who was doing his wife on the stair
But the banister broke
So he doubled his stroke
And finished her off in mid-air.
There once was a man from Cape Horn,
who wished he never was born.
And he wouldn’t have been
if his father had only seen
that the top of the condom was torn.
“I’m lonely,” Adam told God in the Garden of Eden. “I need to have someone around for company.” “Okay,” replied God. “I’ll give you the perfect companion. She is beautiful, intelligent and gracious, she’ll cook and clean for you and never say a cross word.” “Sounds great,” Adam said. “But what’s she going to cost?” “An arm and a leg” answered God. “That’s pretty steep,” replied Adam. “What can I get for a rib?”
Three engineers are arguing about which is better, mechanical engineering, or electrical, or civil — and the mechanical engineer says, “God must’ve been a mechanical engineer — look at the joints in the human body.” And the second says, “No, God must’ve been an electrical engineer — look at the nervous system.” And the third said: “God had to be a civil engineer, cause who else would’ve run a waste disposal pipeline right through a great recreational area?”
A minister died and went to heaven and ahead of him at the Pearly Gate was a guy in sunglasses and a leather jacket and the guy said to St. Peter. “I’m Joe Nestorenko, cabdriver of Las Vegas.” Saint Peter gave him a golden robe and golden staff and then it was the minister’s turn. “I am Elmer Lundberg, pastor of Zion Lutheran for forty five years.” Saint Peter gave him a cotton robe and wooden staff.” “But that man was a taxi driver? and he gets a golden robe? and golden staff?” And St. Peter said, “Up here, we go by results. While you preached, people slept; while he drove, people prayed.”
I am not planning on spending much money other than on food, some snacks, medicine and the essentials like toiletries this month. Most of what I used to make online via sponsored posts have dried up and what I do make I add to my monthly bills. And I am keeping the rest for anything that may cross up from time to time like the handkerchief set that bought, the kitchen towels, the mosquito repellents and stuff. These aren’t things I buy that often so it’s mostly once in a while.
I do want to buy a shirt or two and I might. There is also a need to buy a replacement body trimmer since the one that I had stopped getting charged several months ago. And I need to trim the bushes, so to speak. So I am not planning on spending that much this month and even I balance things out I can get 2 shirts and get the trimmer. But if I had a little extra cash the thing that I would buy would be this set that you see over here. It costs Rs. 6,619.00 and is the boxset of all 23 stories in The Adventures of Tintin series that Herge released. The hours and hours of enjoyment that I had as a kid is priceless when it comes to Tintin. The Adventures of Tintin has always been one of my favourite childhood comics. A few of my cousins & I being engrossed in reading and discussing the series is definitely a treasured childhood memory.
Even though I have PDF scanned copies of all the books, it would have nice to have the entire set in book format. The main cast of the comic book series is as follows: Captain Haddock, Tintin, Snowy the dog, Professor Cuthbert Calculus and the mumbling police detectives Thomson & Thompson. Pictured & certainly an essential supporting cast of the series includes Nestor, Captain Haddock’s butler, famed opera singer Bianca Castafiore & her maid Irma. Incidentally, although they are remarkably alike in appearance and mannerisms, the detectives are not actually twins or even brothers! Which explains why they are called Thompson & Thomson (Thompson with a ‘P’ & Thomson without a ‘P’). They are always a hoot and manage to get themselves in trouble a lot.
Friends: The Reunion is a 2021 reunion special of the American television sitcom Friends. The special is hosted by James Corden and executive produced by the show’s co-creators, Marta Kauffman and David Crane, Kevin S. Bright, the show’s main cast, and Ben Winston (who also directed the special). The special sees the main cast revisit the sets of the original show (such as the Friends’ apartments, the Central Perk coffee shop, and the signature water fountain), meet with guests who appeared on the show as well as celebrity guests, do table reads and re-enactments of Friends episodes, and share behind-the-scenes footage.
The special was executive produced by the show’s co-creators, Kevin S. Bright, Marta Kauffman and David Crane, and the show’s main cast, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer. Ben Winston directed and executive produced through Fulwell 73. The special was filmed in Los Angeles, California, at Stage 24, also known as “The Friends Stage” at Warner Bros. Studios, Burbank, where Friends had been filmed since its second season. The filming of the reunion began in April 2021. Filming of the special was delayed twice, first in March 2020, and second in August 2020, both due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Bob Saget, the comedian, television host and actor arguably known best by audiences as wholesome patriarch Danny Tanner on the sitcom Full House, has died, his family confirmed in a statement to CNN. He was 65. Saget was found dead in a hotel room on Sunday at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes, according to a statement from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office. The cause of death will be determined by the medical examiner, the Sheriff’s office added. Saget was in Florida as part of his comedy tour.
Born in Philadelphia to a Jewish family, he briefly lived in Los Angels before his family moved back to Philly. Saget originally intended to become a doctor, but his Honors English teacher, Elaine Zimmerman, saw his creative potential and urged him to seek a career in films. Saget attended Temple University’s film school, where he created Through Adam’s Eyes, a black-and-white film about a boy who received reconstructive facial surgery, and was honored with an award of merit in the Student Academy Awards. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in 1978.
Saget, though known on the stage and among his friends for his raunchy humor, first became known to audiences on family-friendly programming. He starred as the widowed father of three girls on ABC’s “Full House” and then as host of the network’s America’s Funniest Home Videos clip show. As Saget recalled to Jake Tapper in a July 2021 interview, the track of his career was unexpected. The sitcom, which starred Candace Cameron Bure, Jodie Sweetin and twins Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen in one role, ran for eight seasons. It lived on in syndication with strong enough nostalgia surrounding it that Netflix picked up a spin-off in 2016, “Fuller House,” starring Bure but featuring frequent appearances from original stars, including Saget, Dave Coulier and John Stamos. It ran for five seasons, concluding in 2020. Saget was also known for his adult-oriented stand-up comedy, and his 2014 album That’s What I’m Talkin’ About was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Comedy Album.
Saget directed the 1996 ABC television movie For Hope, which was inspired by the life story of his sister, Gay Saget, who had died from scleroderma three years earlier. In 1998, he directed his first feature film, Dirty Work, starring Norm Macdonald and Artie Lange. Released one year after he left his long-running role as host of America’s Funniest Home Videos, the film received broadly negative reviews from critics and earned low box office returns. However, it has since become a cult favorite, due partially to Artie Lange’s later popularity on The Howard Stern Show where the film is sometimes mentioned, often in unflattering terms. In 1998, Saget made a cameo appearance as a cocaine addict in the stoner comedy Half Baked.
Following his first round of sitcom fame, Saget worked steadily in film and television roles but became known to a new generation of sitcom fans on CBS’s How I Met Your Mother, acting as narrator and the voice of future Ted Mosby. That show ran until 2014. Throughout the years, Saget remained a fixture in stand-up comedy, releasing multiple specials over the years and taking his show on the road. According to tour dates pinned to his Twitter account, he performed Saturday night at Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. Saget was in the midst of a tour at the time of his death that was set to take him to locations in New York, Canada and several other locations in the coming months.
Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga is a 2020 American romantic musical fantasy comedy film directed by David Dobkin, written by Will Ferrell and Andrew Steele, and starring Will Ferrell, Rachel McAdams, Dan Stevens, Melissanthi Mahut, Mikael Persbrandt, Ólafur Darri Ólafsson, Graham Norton, Demi Lovato, and Pierce Brosnan. The film follows the personally close Icelandic singers Lars Erickssong and Sigrit Ericksdóttir as they are given the chance to represent their country at the Eurovision Song Contest. The Story of Fire Saga was initially scheduled for a May 2020 release to coincide with the Eurovision Song Contest 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 contest was cancelled, and the film was subsequently released a month later, on June 26, on Netflix.
The Story of Fire Saga received mixed reviews from critics (who praised the original music but criticised the two-hour runtime), but had a positive reception from many Eurovision fans. The film received a nomination for Best Original Song at the 93rd Academy Awards (for “Husavik”).
