    “....listen carefully because I shall say this only once....”

    That was a great show.

    Home Improvement is a sitcom starring Tim Allen that aired on ABC from 1991 to 1999. In the 1990s, it was one of the most watched sitcoms winning many awards. The show's title refers to physical improvement of houses, as well as to improving life with family, friends, work, and school.
    There's no more reliable engine for comedy than the differences between men and women; Home Improvement puts that topic front and center. Launched from the stand-up comedy of Tim Allen, this sturdy sitcom rests on the endearing, befuddled machismo of Tim Taylor (Allen), the host of a how-to-build-stuff show called Tool Time, who finds raising three sons and being a supportive husband isn't always as easy as sanding down a door frame. In the show's first season, the tried-and-true domestic plotlines (for example: wife wants to have a romantic dinner, husband wants to watch the big game--the fodder of every family sitcom since the dawn of television) are given a fresh spin by Home Improvement's embrace (and gentle mockery) of the men's movement that flourished in the early '90s.

    Tim's neighbor Wilson (Earl Hindman), whose face is always obscured by the fence between their yards, proves to be a font of Iron John-style wisdom--wisdom that Tim comically garbles when he puts it into practice. Allen and Patricia Richardson (as Tim's prickly but tolerant wife, Jill) immediately established a cozy but smart banter with enough bite to rise above the bland bickering of too many sitcoms. Some jokes degenerate into schtick--Tim's manly grunting becomes rote by the second episode--but Allen and his writing team consistently found surprises in this familiar territory. The capable supporting cast also includes Tim's sensitive and woefully single assistant Al (Richard Karn), his three cute sons (Jonathan Taylor Thomas, Zachery Ty Bryan, and Taran Noah Smith), and Tool Time's eye-candy (future Baywatch sex bomb Pamela Anderson).

    The Honeymooner's ~ Love this Show ~ The Honeymooners.jpg

    The Honeymooners is a sitcom that starred Jackie Gleason as Ralph Kramden and centered Ralph's trials and tribulations of trying to better his life and family.
    328 Chauncey Street, Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, New York is where the apartment residences of the Kramdens and the Nortons stand. These four people, fifteen years after the depression are still struggling to make ends meet. Ralph Kramden and Alice Gibson married following his acquiring employment as a bus driver with the Gotham Bus Company. Edward Lillywhite Norton, a sewer worker, and his wife, Thelma 'Trixie', live above the Kramdens. The stories depict the sincere attempts of two men attempting to better their lives, and the ensuing frustrations when their schemes to strike it rich inevitably backfire. Although "The Honeymooners" is one of the best remembered comedy highlights of TV's golden age, it was seen for most of its history as a segment within other programs.

    Petticoat%20Junction-4-3.jpg

    The Petticoat Junction is a sitcom that aired on CBS from 1963 until 1970 about a widow and her three daughters who operated a hotel on the outskirts of a small rural town. The girls' feeble-minded Uncle Joe often came up with zany ideas that put the hotel in jeopardy.
    Sometimes the girls themselves would get into jams requiring their mom, her friends, and occasionally even Uncle Joe to find a way out for them. A "colorfull" cast of characters checked into the hotel and more visited from town on the train.

    Theme Song Lyrics & Opening Credits

    Theme by Paul Henning

    Come ride the little train that is rolling down the tracks to the junction.
    Petticoat Junction
    Forget about your cares, it is time to relax at the junction.
    Petticoat Junction

    Lotsa curves, you bet. Even more when you get
    To the junction, Petticoat Junction.

    There's a little hotel called the Shady Rest at the junction.
    Petticoat Junction
    It is run by Kate, come and be her guest at the junction.
    Petticoat Junction
    And that's Uncle Joe, he's a movin' kind of slow at the junction,
    Petticoat Junction.

    Liked that show a lot. He played a good guy in the show, but has mostly been cast as a bad guy since.

    Anyone remember Sky King? That was the late 50's back in the Lone Ranger days.

    Another, albeit obscure, favorite...
