Anything from the God of childrens' television, Gerry Anderson, the list just goes on!

(Most of this list is showing my age lol!)
Twizzle
Torchy the Battery Boy
Four Feather Falls
Supercar
Fireball XL5
Stingray
Thunderbirds (IMO the greatest of them all!)
Captain Scarlet
Joe 90
The Secret Service (with the unique Professor Stanley Unwin)
UFO
Space 1999

As well as childrens' stuff (he invented the term 'supermarionation'), he also created the TV series 'The Protectors', with Robert Vaughn, Tony Anholt and Nyree Dawn Porter, Anholt also played a part in Space 1999.

When I was young, on Saturday mornings my brother and I would watch Davey and Goliath first, then Felix the Cat, and then the Three Stooges. Sometimes they'd have a Roy Rogers movie afterwards. I was in my teens when Josie and the Pussycats came on. I would watch from time to time, but I had more important things to do like hang out with pretty girls.

For me it was:

He Man
Knight Rider
Mighty Mouse
GI Joe
Transformers
smurfs
Salute your Shorts
You can't do that on television
Alf
Reading Rainbow

As I got older I also watched Sponge Bob, Angry Beavers, Cow and Chicken, Dexters Lab and the Power Puff Girls.(I had a child in my late teens
)

I want to give a shout out to Samurai Jack though, I still love that cartoon.

Thanks again for the reminders Saroncan-- what a lineup there was-- Chez Helene, Friendly Giant, then Mr. Dressup and his tickle trunk...

I remember an early 70's sci-fi show from the UK call UFO. I was 5 or 6 at the time, but I was so drawn to that show. Even though I haven't seen it since, I can still remember the opening theme music and credits. I think this is the real reason I watched it though
www.scifiscoop.com... Yup purple haired hotties!

Just remembered one that used to be another fav, Michael Bentine's potty time loads of little characters that mumbled and squeaked.

Ufo along with a lot of Gerry Anderson stuff was what got me intrigued into Sci-fi, Space 1999 was a real classic part US part UK.

There are just so many that they just seem to keep appearing from the ether that is my childhood brain

And then there was

Wonder Woman
Bionic Man
Bionic Woman
Charlie's Angels

I remember at recess in school we would pretend we were these characters

Holy geez the memories abound in this thread!

I dunno if someone has mentioned these but a few I miss are Captain Caveman, The Shmoo and The Prisoner.
..and I loooved Space 1999. The animal morphing lady was my fave too! I was fascinated when she turned into a tiger!
I did always wonder what good her abilities were in space though lol. *sigh* Good times.

Captain Caveman! I can't believe I forgot that one! That was my favorite as a youngster.
George of the Jungle was one of my favorites too.
