Welcome to my A-Z list of 2016.
This year, I'll be recalling some of my favourite programs from television, via A-Z, of course.
How many of these do you remember?
Were these before your time?

1950 - 1961 / You Bet Your Life featuring Groucho Marx
I was not familiar with this show, but I was familiar with Groucho Marx and the Marx Brothers. For me, they were rivals of the Three Stooges. Once in my teen years, I decided to host a Doctor Who themed party but most of us ended up looking like the Marx Brothers for whatever reason.
1958 / Yogi Bear featuring: Daws Butler, Greg Burson, Jeff Bergman
I was never much of a Yogi Bear fan, but if it was one when I was a child, I would watch it. Because, a cartoon is much better than morning news. Well, for a six year old child anyway. He would later be on one of my favourite cartoons, the Laff-O-Lympics.
1979-1990 / You Can't Do That On Television featuring: Les Lye, Abby Hagyard,
How many times have I actually seen this one? I don't know. But I never really saw it till cable became a big thing. For one of my classmates, I think this was his favourite show because he was always quoting from it. Eventually, he went on to be an inspiration for one of the characters in my Writer's Block series.
