        .....I remember watching Melody Thomas-Scott (Nikki Reed as her character was known then) back like 30 years ago on the Young and the Restless...
        I loved those too!!

        And, I watched the Y & R for over 20 years myself. I still tune in once in a while to see what's up and who's still there.

            OMG that Love American Style had 1/2 the cast of Happy Days!!

            I always wanted to be That Girl too <tee hee>

            I remember watching the intro to the following but lost interest in it because it took place in a school. And I was sick, so the last thing I wanted was a reminder of school.

              Ah, nostalgia. It's interesting to view the TV shows remembered by various MiceChatters and realize that they reveal a little about our ages. Some of the shows remembered as daytime shows, I remember when they were prime time shows.

              A few favorites:
              Petticoat Junction
              December Bride
              My Little Margie
              Topper
              Burns & Allen
              Truth Or Consequences
              Beat The Clock
              I Love Lucy
              The local San Diego station that showed old movies.

              A (hopefully) interesting bit of trivia:
              The audience laugh tracks weren't very sophisticated in the 50's. I remember particularly in My Little Margie that whenever Margie was about to hatch up a sneaky plan, the "audience" would begin to giggle and twitter then, very distinctively a woman's voice could be heard saying, "Oh, yeah." (...as if answering a friend who had just whispered something like, "Oh my... this is going to be funny!") It became a game for me to watch that show and listen for this bit of pre-recorded track. I don't think I was ever disappointed. It was used in every single show. Occasionally, she also turned up in the audience of other shows too. Now I want to find an old episode just to hear my "Oh, yeah" lady one more time.
              "Yesterday, a man walked up to me and said, 'Isn't it a shame that Walt Disney couldn't be here to see this?' and I said, "He did see this, that's why it's here."

                It didn't, except for a single episode, the one that the video showed. Love, American Style wasn't a typical sitcom that revolved around the same characters week after week. Every episode consisted of one or two one-off stories that were unrelated to each other.

                    Am I the only one here that watched the Mary Tyler Moore Show or did all of us old folks just forget about it?

                      The Mary Tyler Moore Show was a primetime sitcom when I was younger - certainly not when I was a child... is it playing during the day now in syndication?

                      Just like I just recently found out that the Banks' first nanny in Mary Poppins was the bride in the Bride of Frankenstien.
                      That was Nancy Kwan playing 'Linda Low' - and singing "I Enjoy Being A Girl"; Miyoshi Umeki played 'Mei Li' - the girl from China experiencing America for the first time.... (and African-American Juanita Hall played 'Madame / Auntie Liang'...!)

                      That was Elsa Lanchester who played 'Katie Nanna" and 'the Bride of Frankenstein'; she was 'married' to Charles Laughton - who she played opposite in "Witness for the Prosecution"

                          Well, Nancy Kwan was dubbed in Flower Drum Song but I'm pretty sure that was her own body.

                          Miyoshi Umeki (who just recently died) did her own singing but was actually Japanese, not Chinese (as was James Shigeta).

                          Juanita Hall also played a polynesian (Bloody Mary) in South Pacific.

                          That wasn't the worst cross-cultural-casting. In the broadway cast of Flower Drum Song one of the Chinese male leads was played by a caucasion: Larry Blyden
