You’re a classic TV fan — from “The Honeymooners” and “The Three Stooges” to “Taxi” and “Three’s Company” (a huge guilty pleasure) — and still watch some of these shows to this day. You also have an impressive collection of classic TV box sets on DVD!
Hearing “Tom & Jerry’s” classic line “The white mouse will not explode” still makes you laugh. “Don’t you believe it!”
You were in awe of Speed Reader’s AMAZING talents on “The Great Space Coaster.”
Dr. Claw saying “Inspector Gadget may return after these messages” still bounces around your brain every so often.
You’re a fan of music — good, REAL music. By that I mean people who can actually play instruments and sing. (Queen and their masterpiece “Queen II” is just one example.) Pop, rock, hard rock, glam, classic, you name it! The bottom line is the main artist’s name is not Yamaha!
You looked forward to watching “The Carol Burnett Show” because you wanted to see Harvey Korman crack up during a skit.
It’s nearly impossible to change the TV channel when you come across movies like Trading Places, Coming to America, Overboard, The Princess Bride, The Outsiders, Cocoon, Wall Street, Mr. Mom, and more!
You know that Benny Hill is not some place on a map.
You believe “Quincy” was the original “CSI.”
You’re convinced “Matlock” could easily take on any lawyers on TV these days.
You played air drums during Rush’s song “Tom Sawyer,” trying to keep up with Neil Peart’s solo. (And for all you old school WCCW wrestling fans, Kerry Von Erich’s ring entrance automatically comes to mind, too.)
Shields & Yarnell freaked you out as a kid because of their eerily magnificent miming.
You miss falling asleep while watching “The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson.” (Read an in-depth post here about how the golden days of late-night TV are long gone, and why today’s late-night hosts will always pale in comparison.)
Your news fix was HBO’s “Not Necessarily the News,” and you looked forward to learning about the latest “Sniglets.” Remember “pajangle”? I still use that sniglet to this day!
You believe current “Must-See TV” programming doesn’t hold a candle to the days when classic TV series like “All in the Family,” “M*A*S*H,” “The Bob Newhart Show,” “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” were on the air. You also might be sick of TV reboots and fed up with ever-increasing cable/satellite TV bills too!
You had or still have a very impressive collection of 45’s (and cassingles).
And while we’re at it…You used to have a bank savings account that actually paid a substantial amount of interest! (Great news: you still can, and it’s super easy! Here’s how.)
If any of the items above strike a positive chord (or a fond memory), there’s a good chance you’ll enjoy further exploring this site!
