Holy crap The Magic Garden! Talk about childhood nostalgia. I need to go fan myself and sit down.

Yeah, I spent some time in a magic garden during the 80's, too.

It needs to be pointed out that if you let that video play out, at the bottom you can select a clip of Burt Reynolds hosting the Tonight Show.

I remember those commercials and that cartoon. catch that pigeon!

I also remember The Honeymooners and The Odd Couple being shown during rain delays.

Nice call on The Magic Garden, Rob

I have vivid memories of watching New Zoo Revue, yet Wikipedia tells me it was off the air by the early 80's, which would mean I was no more than 3 or 4. Up until now, I thought my first memories were from when I was like 12.

Also, "11 Alive" makes me yearn for 5 Alive. Earl, we got any 5 Alive? I'm dyin' out here.

I'm still looking for drugs strong enough to banish these guys from my nightmares:

The New Zoo Revue ran perpetually in syndication, at around 6 in the morning if I recall correctly. YouTube has a great outtake where Freddie the Frog flips out...
