The Courtship of Eddies Father
(orig. aired 1969-1972)
I always thought it was cool that they had a housekeeper, Mrs Livingston. Do you remember that she always addressed Bill Bixby as "Mr. Eddie's Father"?
As I recall, Eddie and his father often had a deep lesson teaching talk at bedtime after Eddie JUMPED on/into the bed. I was never allowed to jump on my bed!
The Partridge Family
(orig. aired 1970-1974
it followed the Brady bunch on Friday nights for a time)
How cool to have a family that travels around in a groovy bus!! I always thought Laurie Partridge was so pretty and I wanted to be grown up like her. ~I had no sisters. And, well what can you say about David Cassidy? All my friends and I were in love with him and kissed his picture...ok maybe that was just me.
I have this sheet music for sale in my shop. And to answer your question....NO! I did not kiss this picture of him. SWEAR! Cross my heart and hope to die.
Charles In Charge
(orig. aired 1884-1985 and
then 1987-1990 in syndication)
Scott Baio was on Happy Days and then Joanie Loves Chachi before this show. The same person played his mom on all three shows. Chachi's real name was Charles.
Like most shows with a moral at the end of the silliness, Charles, the college student-live in babysitter, never failed to get the children to listen.Bewitched (orig. aired 1969-1972)
I never failed to be fooled and never questioned how the magic was done when I was very young. I must admit this show was not as fun when I began to dissect the splicing that was required to do the stunts before the computer generated magic we now have. I loved Aunt Clara and her doorknob collection! I was a Dick York (1964-1969) fan myself...
played later by Sandra Gould (1966-1971)
Mrs Kravitz had a very enduring husband if not endearing. I mean c'mon, who could put up with her?? Did you know that the outside of the Kravitz house was also the outside of the Partridge Family house?
I have a dear friend ~that I went to school with 1-12 grade~ that coincidentally lives down the street 3 houses from me now. When we want to check up on neighborhood gossip we call each other on the phone, "Hello Gladys? This is Samantha. Got anything?" We take turns playing the part of Gladys!
