I resemble that remark. You know, Guy Williams played Zorro on TV. My early TV heros were Hopalong Cassidy and Roy Rogers. And on Saturday mornings I watched The Andy Devine show, My Friend Flicka and Sky King. There were usually only a couple channels to choose from, so all us kids were watching the same shows and could discuss all the latest episodes.
So you probably saw lots of Vaudeville shows then?
I remember that late night show ... I used to stay up late watch that when I was a kid, funny as hell if I remember correctly. I still do the " Bert invisible snap your fingers trick" with my wife when she mad at me ... just to bug her.
But, I didn't watch much TV when I was younger, if it was daylight...I was outside ....... fishing, swimming or building things or something.
