My brother is a big TZ fan.  For his birthday I gave him a "best of" the show DVD and it does have many of the best ones!  Some of my favorites on that DVD set are "The Invaders" with Agnes Moorehead and "Two" with Elizabeth Montgomery and Charles Bronson.

I like the later FLIPPER episodes, when Luke had matured into a teenager.  He and Brian Kelly were full of eye appeal.

Brian Kelly used to appear on a game show quite frequently that I watched
when I'd get home from school. (You Don't Say.) I remember he had very
hairy and big arms. (He never wore a suit, just his same kind of Flipper shirt he
wore on the show.)

I looked it up and Luke Halpin is now 66!  Yikes!

So on Flipper he would've been 17 when it started in 1964, right?
Wonder what he looks like now?

Okay, I found a pic, but I don't know when it was actually taken. Growing, growing, grown.

Bud, played by Tommy Norden, used to irritate me because he was a simp and to boot, sounded like he was from Brooklyn and always pronounced Flipper as "Flippa!"

I don't knnow where Tommy was born, but Luke was born in Queens!

Wasn't their last name Ricks?  Bud and Sandy Ricks.

He looks like Rick Schroder (Silver Spoons) in that first picture.  He has actually aged really well!

Nice pic of Roddy, he was in Twilight Zone and Night Gallery (another good show).

Those two shows had great guest stars, people who would go on to be quite famous.

Now, if that doesn't look like a gay couple in domestic mode! Oi!  :o

I don't know, it said it was TV.  But honestly I barely remember Tarzan on TV - although I know I watched it.

So did we. Ron Ely was Tarzan. And I remember the great Julie Harris doing a couple of guest spots, as a missionary.

That upper right black and white photo looks like maybe around 1980? Looks sort of Magnum P.I.-ish. That period anyway.

"December Bride" with Spring Byington and Harry Morgan and "Our Miss Brooks" with Eve Arden remain two of my favorite TV classics.
Don't know who was gay in either one but someone  >:D here will know.
Both were well written(here and there) and beautifully acted.

Also, "My Little Margie", "The Life of Riley", were excellent and original to the form. (tv sitcom)

"I Married Joan" was also pretty good and a great example of TV copying a hit formula (in this case "I Love Lucy").
Nothing new, of course.  The formula copy idea came from radio and, before that, vaudeville. And before that....well,the Greeks.
