remember watching as a kid
21 September 2010 | by (Lafayette, CO USA) – See all my reviews

I agree with the previous reviewer.

This series has been unjustly forgotten. I wonder if ABC even has any of the film reels or tapes left. It should be put into DVD format and marketed. I would buy the entire series just for something to look at every now and then and remember what it was like to be a young kid in '60s America.

It wasn't all bad stuff, my friends. There was a lot of good stuff out there, and this show proves it. This kids show had substance and class and was very well done.

I was born the year the series started, but I remember the tune from the show distinctly from as early as 3 years old when I was a very avid TV watcher for many years. I didn't remember a lot of other details, but then again this hasn't been on TV once ever since the original airing that I know of.

Please bring it back for old times sake.
