Grew up with these shows, flipper, salty, zebra in the kitchen, skippy etc. Fun family shows all of them that followed the "child, his exotic animal friend and clean wholesome adventure" Cookie cutter plot pattern that was so successful at that time.
These shows remind me of a simpler time, and when I catch I rerun I easily slip back into them and can almost smell meatloaf and macaroni casserole as mom got dinner ready for when dad came home from work. Ahhh the 70's....and there's no doubt who these shows are being re-run for since they're usually run in the extreme early morning hours around 3AM. It's for the insomniac sentimental forty-somethings to reminisce over since I can't see these shows sitting well with the new millennium kids in the after-school TV time slot it was designed for. Without a laser beam shooting robot that can transform into a toaster oven and a jet, or a mutant kid with hidden superpowers and skimpy clothing it likely won't interest 9 out of 10 of them. But I still love them.
Laugh now but you Degrassi kids are next. Lol
