Bewitched was my Favorite TV Show. I loved the magic and twitching of the nose and everything seemed to turn out OK in the end. I can remember a lady coming to our small 2 roomed flat where my family of 5 lived when I was 8 yrs old (now 56!). She was completing a door to door survey on what TV shows the family liked best. How times have changed!
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. Diahann Carroll herself remarked in 1968, "At the moment we're presenting the white Negro. And he has very little Negroness."
The Uncle played in many of the first and second season episodes of Green Acres. The only character on Petticoat Junction that I thought was obnoxious! Not a role example for sure! Otherwise - this show was zany and a semi-real and entertaining capture of what rural America was believed to encounter along the tracks of backwoods life.
Bosom Buddies (1980-1982) Back in the prehistoric days of his acting career, Hanks donned a wig and stuffed bra so his sitcom character, Kip Wilson, could rent in an affordable girls-only apartment house. To pay that cheap rent, Kip-slash- Buffy worked as a graphic artist at Livingston, Gentry & Mishkin ad agency. His equally lipsticked roommate, Henry, wrote copy for the agency.
