1964: An Amazing Year for Television!
In our last post, we celebrated the 50th anniversary of the premiere of VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA, on September 14, 1964 – HERE.
But, to paraphrase that famous pig… That’s NOT all, folks!
A truly amazing number of great and memorable shows debuted in 1964, and let’s give some Blog-space to them as well:
THE ADDAMS FAMILY
THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E.
And Hanna-Barbera’s literal INVENTION of the half-hour animated adventure series: JONNY QUEST.
Also, because our friend and contributor “Top Cat James” was good enough to add-on to my list in the comment thread of THIS POST from YOWP:
LINUS THE LIONHEARTED
THE FAMOUS ADVENTURES OF MISTER MAGOO
GOMER PYLE U.S.M.C.
Feel free to mention any other beloved series 1964 debut not cited by TCJ or myself.
What a year! And 1965 and 1966 only get better, folks! You can bet, when the time comes, I’ll be posting on those years as well.
