Though Julia (1968-71, NBC) is now remembered as being a groundbreaking TV series, while on the air, it was derided by critics for being apolitical and unrealistic.

Even if you're too young to have ever watched Captain Kangaroo, I'll bet you know what a huge part he played in the lives of kids growing up in the 50's, 60's, 70's and even the 80's!
I've been watching a lot of Mork and Mindy on the Hub channel...adored this show so much as a kid--the randomness, Robin Williams' bursts of brilliance, the 70s-chic sets, and Pam Dawber. I now realize that Pam Dawber is the closest thing to a personal style icon I can I.D. from that era. LOVE her!! remember this, memori, personal style, style icons, robin williams, robins, mindi, childhood, mork
Pam Dawber and Robin Williams! Mork and Mindy one of my favorite shows! nanoo nanoo

Although it had been based on a popular movie, many wondered if a dramedy about war would be successful. It was slow going in the first season, but "M*A*S*H" gained a devoted audience and became one of the most beloved and longest-running series in history.
