80's TV Rocked!
The Greatest American Hero was one of my favorite shows of all time. It's funny,
inspirational, and witty. Ralph was totally cool, and is the kind of guy I always
figured I would end up being and the reason I initially wanted to be a teacher!
Tom Hanks and Peter Scolari as Buffy and Hildy, two really cute chicks. And who could forget Donna Dixon. What a fox! Tom has obviously moved on to bigger and better. Unfortunately, Peter now "stars" (if you can call it that) on the Honey, I Shrunk the Kids syndicated TV show.
Cheers was a great place to go on Thursday nights, where "Everybody knows your name!" Kept alive by syndication, Norm, Cliff, Sam, Carla and Woody will live forever! And the Cheers bar in Memphis (and in London) is not too bad either.
"Come and knock on our door...we've been waiting for you,"
was always something welcome to hear on the TV. Jack Tripper, Chrissy Snow, Janet Wood, and Teri the nurse were hilarious.
And Larry and Mr. and Mrs. Roper were equally hilarious, as was Mr. Furley and Felippe.
"Whatchoo talkin' 'bout Willis?" was one of the most famous sayings ever uttered on prime-time television. Willis and Arnold are famous in my eyes, but now, unfortunately, have found a bit of trouble, as has Kimberly.
"You take the good, you take the bad, you take 'em both and there you have the Facts of Life."
I loved this show. Lisa Welchel (Blair) was my first crush, followed not too far behind by Jo
(Nancy McKeon). And for you ladies, George Clooney was also in this show. Something for everyone!
Alex P. Keaton was, and is, my hero. Mallory was such a babe! Too bad she always turned me (Skippy Handelman is the closest thing to me on TV) down and went for guys like "Nick." "Mallory!"

Family Ties Tribute Page
The Wonder Years was one of the most hilarious shows of the 80's. Stop by
the Arnold house for a trip back to the 60's with Kevin, Winnie, and your favorite big brother and mine...
Blanche, Rose, Dorothy, and Sophia were funny ladies, and are still in syndication on Lifetime, TV for Women.
Growing Pains starred Alan Thicke when he could act. Kirk Cameron was a favorite for girls of all ages when this show was on, and Ben Seaver was a great little brother!
I always thought Tracey Gold was a babe!
I'm at WKRP in Cincinatti. One of the most hilarious shows with one of the most beautiful women in the world (at least then),
Lonnie Anderson. Growl!
The Love Boat was a great show. Julie, Gopher, Doc, Captain Stubing, Isaac,
and the rest were all hilarious. You had to have watched this show if you
grew up in the 80's!
Saturday Nite Live also kicked butt. I can remember staying up late on
Saturdays specifically to watch all the funny stuff this show had to offer. Now
all the good actors are gone.
Pee Wee's Playhouse
Who could forget the best show on Saturday mornings? With Chairie, Conky, Chambie, and everyone else. And don't forget to "scream real loud" after you go to this site!
For more great 80's cartoons, check out Willow Bee's awesome page here!
School House Rock on ABC was the BOMB! You can still order their video tapes, and
they will probably still teach you something you may have forgotten. School House Rocky,
I'm Just a Bill, and others will take you back to a simpler time!
The lyrics to ALL the shows can be found here!
Stay tuned, there's more cartoons to come!
80's Drama Shows
I didn't watch, or enjoy, nearly as many of these shows as I did the comedies of the 80's, but they are definitely worth mentioning!
Murdoch was great, as were B.A. (Bad Ass) Baracas, Hannibal, and Face! A drama I actually tried to watch Monday nights, before Monday Night Football, of course!
Gotta love the tight pants Ponch and Jon wore in this show. Eric Estrada isn't even popular enough now to do anything except for cameos on The Tonight Show. And he's still got those great tight pants!
"Who Shot J.R." was on the lips of everyone in the mid-80's. But after it all turning out to be a dream, everyone lost interest fast. Besides, Larry Hagman was much better on "I Dream of Jeannie" in the 60's and 70's.
What better mini-series was there than V, the "friendly" visitors from outer space. What a weird series! But you never know if it's true or not, do you??
Janet Jackson before she was a mega-babe! There were many other beauties on here as well, and everyone could really dance great!
See, David Hasselhoff really could act! But K.I.T.T. was the star of the show! And Bonnie...vroom vroom!
Miami Vice was quite a show! Did you wear a pink t-shirt with a white suit and forget to shave for a few days?? Sadly, this was Don Johnson's only good acting job!
Bruce Willis also could act at one time. So could Cybil Shepherd. Too bad this show went off the air. You know, Booger from Revenge of the Nerds also was on this show! Watch for him!
By popular request, Simon and Simon have been added to this page. They are pretty cool and this show was also a classic!
Here's another cool Simon & Simon link to check out!

"Sam" leaped into more bodies than I care to remember. Scott Bakula was great in this show. So was Al!
