You know you're Old when ...

you recognize these show opening theme songs:

Mr. Ed - Intro (Opening Theme)

1966 opening theme to Green Acres TV show

Get Smart

Lost in Space: Season 4 Opening

And you know you watched too much TV as a kid,

when you can remember the words too, as well as the theme songs:

Brady Bunch TV Show Opening Theme Season Five

Beverly Hillbillies Opening

All in the Family TV Intro (70's)

Three's Company theme song

And you know you've seen one too many Pie Fights,

when this next one makes you think of the Daily Kos ...

Gilligan's Island Theme Song

Gilligan's Island Intro. (Rare, Colorized).  1st season too.

... and the Rest!

And yet another milestone passes ...

A very creative light went out last year:

Sherwood Schwartz, who created “Gilligan’s Island” and “The Brady Bunch,” two of the most affectionately ridiculed and enduring television sitcoms of the 1960s and ’70s, died on Tuesday in Los Angeles. He was 94.
by Anita Gates, -- July 12, 2011

Sherwood Schwartz will go down a legend of Television lore, no doubt.

Long may he live on, in syndication.

Post em, if you got em.  It can't all be politics and pie fights, now, can it?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
