Never saw that one, and, unfortunately, I don't get Antenna TV.

I have McHale's Navy on dvd, and, Me tv shows The Phil Silvers show on Sunday mornings................
Great shows........
Just a week ago they had the Phil Silvers one where Sgt. Bilko held an auction, and, was trying to sell a non playing tv. It was the famous 1949 3" Pilot tv.

Tim Conway is an extremely funny man. I cannot watch him without laughing my arse off, and I'm not a real big laugher. The outtakes I've seen from CB showed he had the same effect on the cast. I always think of him with Carol Burnett but he had a wonderful start in McHales Navy. My maternal grandmother was in Vaudeville and performed with Carl Ballantine, the chap playing "Gruber" on that show.

I left the US in 1970 and did not return for a little over six years. When I left, Gomer Pyle was the top show. The first show I saw when I returned was All in the Family and I was amazed at the change.

And then there was "Green Acres". Eva Gabor and Eddie Albert had some great "off-color double-entendres". I was shocked they got some through the censors. I didn't really notice this when I first viewed it but when someone pointed out a couple to me I began watching reruns. Haney's snake-oil salesman role was classic.

I remember seeing the NBC peacock for the first time in color. Now that was cool to a 8-9 year old kid. If I'm thinking rite RCA was a one of the sponsors for Disney's Wonderful World Of Color.

You are. RCA and Eastman Kodak were 2. Then there was always a trailer at the end of the program for whatever movie Disney Had in release at the time.

It's not a show but setting up convergence on an old Magnavox was a lot easier using that channel with the test pattern on it. Where did that go?
