Who Could Forget 80's TV?!

From Punky Brewster to Silver Spoons, you gotta love 80's tv!! There were so many fun shows back then, TV just isn't the same! Does anyone remember Dance Fever or Dance Party USA? How about People's Court? Below are a few of the shows that I used to love growing up. What did you watch?? Leave a comment about your favorites, and take my poll!!

A Different World, Charles in Charge, Cosby Show, Too Close For Comfort, Diff'rent Strokes, Silver Spoons, Facts of Life, Little House On The Prairie, Bewitched, Family Ties, Punky Brewster, Gimme A Break - anyone remember that one? The Hogan Family, Incredible Hulk, Growing Pains, Fraggle Rock, Who's The Boss, Mr. Belvedere, Moonlighting, Perfect Strangers, Step-by-Step, Small Wonder, Three's Company, Knight Rider (go David Hasselhoff!) Webster, my absolute favorites were 21 Jumpstreet (Who didn't love that one?!) and CHiPs (and of course every time the theme for this came on, my family would GROAN!)

My mom used to like "Alice" and "Mission: Impossible" with the old[er] guy she thought was handsome, (what was his name?)

There were so many others!! I just loved 80's TV! And what about all the old 80's cartoons?! That, my friends, is a whole 'nother story!

And if you can think of any other great ones I may have missed, leave 'em in the comments!

What was the Hogan family? I knew all the others. I can't believe I could only pick one for your poll. I loved A-Team, Dukes of Hazzard, Knight Rider, but I couldn't vote for all of them. I sound like a boy for liking those shows, but I think I liked the boys in them. Officer Baker, Bo Duke and of course, Micheal Knight!
I hope you don't mind I linked to your blog and copied you tag on mine.

I don't mind at all. I guess I should have made it for people to pick multiple answers, hehe, but it's fun to see what all the votes are!
The Hogan Family had Sandy Duncan and Jason Bateman, it was first called "Valerie" because Valerie Harper was on it as the mom, but she left the show, and Sandy Duncan came on as the Aunt and it was changed to The Hogan Family. Loved it!

I loved the Cosby Show, Bewitched, Punky Brewster, Step-By-Step, Little House On the Prairie (That’s the one I voted for). You’re right, TV just isn’t what it use to be. I really miss the good ol’ shows : ( Thanks for posting this, it was fun to go down memory lane.
