The 60s Thread, Goddammit
This really plumbs the depth of my memory, but I remember when Lost In Space, Hogan's Heroes, Mission Impossible, and Star Trek were new. I watched the first episode of Sesame Street as it was originally braodcast. I remember a big deal being made about Sgt. Pepper, but my parents wouldn't let me listen to it. I remember a big deal being made about Yellow Submarine, but my parents wouldn't let me watch it. I did get to see Elvis movies, though. I knew they sucked even then.
I remember the original Spiderman and Fantastic Four cartoons and the Marvel cartoons that were basically just Kirby art from the comics that wobbled around the screen.
I remember Goldwater, LBJ, MLK, RFK, and Nixon. I remember Tet. That was a catastrophe that shook people up even in small town KY. I also remember most of the Gemini missions and all of the Apollo missions.
