Still in my nostalgic mood, I'm thinking of the TV shows that I sat glued next to. And here's the funny thing, it wasn't until I put together this list I saw a few themes: Single parenting. Magic. Cute, blond, short haircuts. Make-shift families.

Mr. French, The Ghost, Mrs. Livingston, Nanny, Alice. Where are you now? Come live at my house. Show me the way.


10. Family Affair

9. Julia

8. That Girl

7. The Ghost and Mrs. Muir

6. The Courtship of Eddie's Father

5. Nanny and the Professor

4. The Partridge Family

3. Gilligan's Island

2. Bewitched

1. The Brady Bunch

This excited me so much; it was like an odd family reunion.


Oh, how I wanted a live-in domestic as a kid!

What fabulous eyelashes Marlo Thomas had.

Gotta love the Brady Bunch and the Partridge Family! And, my favorite was Family Affair!

Now, let's hear about the cartoons.

Go, Speed Racer, go!

Did you watch HR Puff N stuff? Is that what is was called?

How about Mr. Ed -- not a cartoon, but still! A horse that talks. Wow.

Um...I don't see Laverne & Shirley here. WTF?

I can't tell you how much I'm enjoying these nostalgia posts. (All the nostalgia; none of the work.) Favorites, all. Especially Nanny and the Professor - Soft and sweet, wise and wonderful, ooo our mystical, magical Nanny...

Look what I found!

Theme son from Nanny and the Professor
Theme by Steve Zuckerman and Fred Calvert

Soft and sweet
Wise and wonderful
Oooh our mystical, magical nanny.

Since the day that nanny came to stay with us
Fantastic things keep happening.
Is there really magic in the things she does
Or is love the only magic thing that nanny brings

You know our nanny showed us you can make the impossible happen.
Nanny told us have a little faith and lots of love

Phoebe Figalilly is a silly name
And so many silly things keep happening
What is this magic thing about nanny
Is it Love? Or is it Magic?.
