Appears a few of these most everyone liked.

The Twilight Zone (first two seasons were the best)

Alfred Hitchcock Presents

The Outer Limits

Rawhide

Gunsmoke

Star Trek

Get Smart (Agent 99)

Wild Wild West (James West was good. Artemis was even more entertaining).

Have Gun Will Travel (Philosopher gunslinger)

Dick Van Dyke (all around funny cast)

Alcoa Presents One Step Beyond (tales of the supernatural)

Bonus points for those who listed The Invaders in their Top Ten...what a great little show that was!

Anyone ever get a good look at Lamson's pinkie? :blink:

I'd definitely have The Invaders in my Top Fifteen, along with aforementioned Star Trek and Rawhide, and two shows no one has mentioned yet:

Dragnet

Hogan's Heroes

Hogan's heroes...sounds like the better precincts of the Ed Forum! B)

How could I leave out Rocky & Bullwinkle? The first cartoon written for adults, but still enjoyed by kids.

Actually, it was also a COLD WAR cartoon intended to indoctrinate children by introducing the "bad guys" in the form of characters, Boris Badenov and Natasha. They were obviously the cartoon faces of Communist KGB spies, complete with stereotypical Soviet spy clothing and thickly layed on Russian accents.

And then there was Get Smart depicting CONTROL as American (CIA) and CHAOS as Soviet (KGB).

And people doubt the existence of project Mockingbird? What a laugh...

Some of the best TV shows had relatively short runs and are largely forgotten today:

For one Mike, "Industry on Parade" http://www.americanhistory.si.edu/archives/d4507.htm NBC 1950-1960 (not a relatively short run, this series was very popular)

Hiram Holliday is this correct ?. I was very young then or was I?.
