THANKS EDGAR AND EBAYING LATE NIGHT

Just looking on Ebay. No buying. I blame it on Edgar! He has the complete series of H.R. PufNStuf, and HE had to share that info on  his blog...  I grew up with Witchie Poo! I had to go take a look and see what was out there! 
Sid and Marty Krofft were busy in the 1970's. Look what I found:

 H.R. Pufnstuf

 Land Of The Lost

 Sigmund and The Sea Monsters

 Lidsville

 The Bugaloos with Martha Raye

Electra Woman & Dyna Girl - Diedra Hall/ Marlana of Days Of Our Lives Soap.

That was my Saturday morning watching, while sitting, half laying on the couch. Oh.. Don't forget that bowl of cereal!
On Youtube tonight.. I watched some Captain Kangaroo! I had forgot what I saw in that show.. Maybe because it was on every morning .. Then in the Afternoons... My brother had to watch Electric Company and Mister Rogers. I forgot about Sesame Street!
That is one show that is nothing like it was in the 1970 and 1980's. I heard.. Correct me if I am wrong. Oscar the Gouch is no longer on the show?  Something about they thought he was  making children feel bad.. and they thought he was homeless.. He was not homeless.. He lived in a garbage can!! geeshhh  He had a roof.. ahhh...excuse me... Lid over his head!  lol   I loved Sesame Street.. The Count was my favorite! One Bat! "thunder" hahahaha  Two Bats "thunder" hahahaha.. and Big Bird was the orignal Barney, but Yellow!! lol I also heard the Cookie Monster doesn't eat cookies anymore. He would demand " Me want Cookies!!"  What is happening? 
Enough on memories of youth!!  I am an adult.. I miss Saturday Mornings!  I may have to get the whole series of Land Of The Lost and H.R. Pufnstuf. Did I mention I have the Partridge Family shows on DVD... I don't need to say anymore....
Till Tomorrow.. while singing  " I think I love Youuuu" in my best David Cassidy voice!

Oh the memory lane. And a hate to break it to be people of Sesame Street but I would not want to watch it without Oscar.By the homeless is reality for people why mot teach them to do something to help rather than pretend it doesn't exist. Enough of my soap box. Try explaining to kids you only got to watch cartoons or like shows on Saturday morning some time....

Thanks for the walk down memory lane! It is a shame they don't make shows like that anymore! So, what is Cookie Monster called if he doesn't eat cookies?

Have a fabulous weekend, April!

uh-oh! me again April. Are you the April Taylor stitching for Brenda? You probably have said it before but bought a chart at market last night, the new Peter & Peep and there was your name. I did notice and thought of you?

Thanks for the nostalgia post! I'm a little older than you are I think so there are a few that I don't recognize. However I do remember David Cassidy! Sigh...... he was my heartthrob!

I can't believe they took Oscar off! He was not homeless--he had a huge house in that garbage can, I always figured it was down under the ground and that can was the entryway, he had a pool down there.
