    3 channels, black and white. I'm only 52 but I remember the TVs before the remote controls, color, satellite/cable/digital, flat screens and large sizes. Heck I lived a lot of my childhood without one at all much less one in every room like I have now!

    And we only had three channels on our black white TV with an antenna.

    I'm not sure if I have any recollection of my Dad getting up to change the channel! Why should he when he had three healthy and able kids!! :)

    changing channels--oh, so true! And...we only had 3 channels. THREE! Best childhood memories!

    I so remember this. I think that is why you always saw the kids sitting by the tv :)

My Daddy wasn't a carpenter by trade, but he was good at building and repairing things and he always used one of these rulers. I still have it.

Small Wonder -- TV Show from '80s. I knew this sitcom about a regular family with a secret robot daughter, wasn't merely a figment of my overactive, pre-adolescent imagination!

These are from the 50's, but we definitely had these in the 80's as well! No way my kids will get their hands in any!

Return to the 70s. This is what we had. Our kids have tiny iPods instead. Never could have imagined that!

LOL, these were my favorite toys to play with when I was little! I would create homes for them with the Fisher Price house and furniture along with those blocks that came in a blue square, orange cylinders, yellow have moon rectangles and red retangle blocks! I would love to have them today!!!

Label Maker. I still have my dad's and all the unused tape from the 70s

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!

I remember where I was....Pismo Beach looking up to the stars and moon at 9 years of age pondering the smallness of the world.
