Growing up it was The adventures of Rin Tin TIn, my grandfather had a German Shepherd and I called him naturally Rinnie. Gooooooo Rinnie. Rusty and Biff were the team.

And for a Canadian show and keeping to the same dog theme was The Littlest Hobo.
That's all we needed as a kid.

Dinner is out of the way, now let me try and jog your memory Stats from my memory of Green Acress and not wikip...
Green Acres was the place to be away from New York, Eddie Albert and Zsa Zsa Gabor. Mr Haney the salesman in the old truck, Fred Ziffell and Arnold his pet pig, Sam Drucker from the store and occassionaly a visit from Petticoat Junction folks, Zeb ?, Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter.

Forgot about Rin Tin Tin and Hill Street Blues, Star Trek great shows. Barney your not that old, are you?. Kojak, another great one and his hair style still lives on in Udon.

Thinking about it, I wonder if it was on AFTER something like Grandstand on a Sat early evening or after a kids programme ..... that would explain why I remember the progs theme tune and nothing else about it :-k

Daydreaming again today at lunch and a show popped into my grey matter...had completely forgotten this show.
Loved this show as a kid. Totally futuristic well ahead of time. Has that constant radar ping through the show.
Still the best looking submarine ever. ???
" Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea "
