Regarding "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea". As a young kid I thought the Seaview was real. One week TV Guide had a picture on the cover. It was Richard Basehart holding the Seaview in his hand in a backyard swimming pool. Burst my bubble!

I was a late in life baby, born in 1953 to strict church going parents that were already over 40. They didn't believe in television, dad called it a "hellevision" because it had beer and at the time, cigarette ads, etc. Boy if he could see what it's like now..........nudity, sex and sexual situations, more and more cursing and vulgar words, violence, murder, etc. Anyway, because of that, we didn't have a TV in the house until I was maybe 10 to 12 years old, don't really remember. My mom finally defied my dad, ha, and went out and bought a small black and white tv. My dad came home and became an instant fan. I still have fond memories of my tough truck driver dad, laughing until he couldn't get his breath, at The Beverly Hillbillies, Red Skelton, and Roadrunner cartoons of all things. Up until we got a TV, I would go next door on Sat mornings to watch all the cartoons and shows. I never saw The Wizard of Oz or Ed Sullivan or Bonanza since they came on Sunday night, and I had to go to church. I don't watch a lot of TV now, but I darn sure have a 55 inch Mitsubishi HD for when I want to in my stucco and studs. I also just purchased a Winegard Razor over the air antenna at Camping world that has suction cups to mount to a window. I mounted it here in the house, because I found Antenna TV (that is the actual station name) in my camper one day on the OTA antenna. They show a lot of the old shows, Dragnet, Leave it to Beaver, etc. There is also a few more of the stations that show the old shows and movies.
My dad had a hernia operation at 61 years old, in 1972 in Lubbock, Tx and passed away from a pulmonary embolism, blot clot to the lung, after three weeks in intensive care. I was 18 at the time, and wow, now I will be 61 next Oct. One of the last memories I have of him was the night before his surgery, several nurses came running into his room thinking there was something wrong with him, because he was loud and slapping the wall without realizing he was doing it, because, yep he was laughing at Fred Sanford "having the big one" on Sanford and Son on the TV.
So yes, great thread, lots of memories of many years of GREAT television. As Red Skelton closed his show, I will also say "Goodnight and May God Bless".

See how many we can remember
This thread has been pretty funny. Though the memories expressed seem a bit "clouded" cos -- you either weren't there or you just plain so old that can't remember!

The OP's question was about your first color TV experience, which for me was a cartoon show called Pixie and Dixie, where the cat said, "I hate you meeces to pieces!" This was back in about 1962 on a neighbors's set near Dallas, Texas. It was the first color TV I'd ever seen, and the picture quality was, at best, terrible!

Remember the jungle, "Wow! I saw color TV, an RCA Victor color TV. I know what I've been missing now... Wow, I saw color TV!"?

My favorite life changing TV moment was seeing the Beatles on Ed Sullivan. I'm still involved in the music bizz 50 years later because of it!

So, what was your first color TV experience??

As a late boomer '58 we always had a color tv. My dad was a rocket scientist so we had all the new gagets. I also grew up with a microwave the size of a ref. a vtr (video tape recorder), used 2" tape and the latest cars. First color show, Laurence Welk.

I just sat the other day on watched a Andy of Mayberry show on tv land......made me smile and laugh! As far as the intro song, thats funny as I listen to my wife whistle it daily (several times a day) to our African Gray parrot Otis and he just about has the whole song down, and the funner part is my birds name and the name of the person Barney was always locking up........Otis, but does anyone remember Otis's last name? No cheating now........ remember(no internet)
