A sitcom called Rocky Road. I think there were 3 kids that ran an ice cream parlor. I don't remember them having any parents. I think the oldest was a teenager. I think they lived in the ice cream parlor or something.


Day by Day, the sitcom with Julia Louis Dreyfus as the stuck up neigbor (i think she was stuck up). A couple had a day care in their house and they had some creepy looking teenage son that hung around the kids. I'm sorry but I would not leave my kids at that place.
I'm thinking that a lot of people here remembers that show, but no one in real life will admit to remember it.

I don't remember who played on Rocky Road either..but I still remember the song.

Yeah I remember Small Wonder, I never understood why they made her wear that little house on the prarie dress.

What about that Gary Coleman cartoon? The Cartoon network still airs that show.

Anyone remember "Heartland" ? It only lasted 13 episodes in 1989, Brian Keith, Katie Layman, Jason Kristofer, Devin Ratray, Daisy Keith, and Richard Gilliland. I enjoyed it.

Another one, "The Jackie Thomas Show" with Tom Arnold. and "The Charmings" both funny shows that the critics trashed.

Someone once asked me if I remember this wierd childrens show that would come on at 3am and had werewolves that danced to rock music, superheroes with big afros, Dracula and Igor and Vincent Price as Narrator.
Yes.
It was called 'The Hilarious House of Frightenstein'.

My sister was asking me if I remembered a Childrens Show that came out somewhere in ..maybe the early eighties which was basically a puppet show that took place in the sea (or an aquarium?) and it involved a Snail and his underwater friends.
I have this really vague memory of this.. it was 'low budget' but was a pretty popular little kids show for the time it was on.
Anyone know this one?

Here is another one I bet most people forgot about already - it was called 'Bigfoot and .... oh oh.. I think I have forgotten..
Bigfoot and Littleboy?

It was a lesser known Sid and Marty Krofft LSD sorta half-hour adventure and it featured Bigfoot (of course) and a young lad who I think was raised in the wilderness by either Bigfoot or Natives.
Anyways, each week him and Bigfoot (who for some reason had super jumping abilities) would solve forestry crimes and infractions.
Dont ask me why but for some reason I think the Bionic Man was involved as a special guest once.

If you remember that one - you watched too many wierd Krofft movies like I did back in the eighties lol!

Wow, I do vaguely remember that Bigfoot show! I don't remember the name though. When I think of a definitive Sid and Marty Krofft show, it's got to be H.R. Pufnstuf!

Hehe.. it was called 'Bigfoot and Wildboy' and there is a hilarious article on that one (scroll down) and also another wierd one called 'Sigmund the Sea Monster'.

Oh yeah... no doubt about it that HR PufnStuf remains the all time Krofft Classic. The controversy over the drug induced hallucinations of it all continue lol.

lol I remember that - what a freaky puppet unsure.gif His name kind of speaks for itself, doesn't it? 'Puff' 'n 'Stuff' . . . laugh.gif huh.gif

Don't remember the bigfoot show or the seamonster show but the bigfoot show reminds me of The Littlest Hobo, that show from the 80's about a homeless dog who'd travel from town to town saving kids from drowning rivers and infiltrating crime rings with his cuteness and then tipping off the cops to bring abpit justice. The star of the show was a real dog, not one of those mechanical dog puppets and he was really good because he could do emotion and stuff not just action scenes . . .

Hehe.. thats awesome Sam, Im not sure if the American readers will know what we are talking about The Littlest Hobo was an all-time Canadian Classic TV show.
"Theres a voice.. that just keeps on calling me.. down the road.. thats where I wanna be.. every step I take.. I meet a new friend.. then down the road back home again.. doo doot do dooooo"

Please tell me you have seen the Corner Gas episode where Hank .. lol.. has this German Shepard following him around and is convinced its 'The Littlest Hobo' lol!
The rest of them try and explain that there is no way the LH could still be alive since its been about 18 years since the show was on the air.
"Thats pretty long for a dog to live you know"

Just hilarious.

omg the tune . . . it used to make me tear up - doo doot do dooooo - lol! I've never bothered to tune into Corner Gas because CTV has so many commercials for it it's like I've already watched the show laugh.gif (that and Canadian Idol - lol) But shucks now I totally want to see it - if they liked Littlest Hobo then you gotta like them biggrin.gif
