An odd spinoff from Mary Tyler Moore - completely different theme, only one character in common, but there you go.... The scene I remember best from MTM was Ted Knight's character looking up in onbe of the minor characters bedroom, looking worried, and starting to comb his hair while looking up. He never mentioned a mirrored ceiling, but you knew it was there.

The Auld Grump, me Mum liked that show....

*EDIT* And one that I liked back then, for reasons that escape me now... My Partner the Ghost. :)
Which leads in turn to The Ghost & Mrs. Muir.

I don't know how the story ends...
But I do know what happens next.

I'll see you Manimal and raise you Man From Atlantis.

And I'll see your Man From Atlantis, and raise you Small Wonder.

Shows that... well... I certainly wasn't watching them for the writing.

Jennifer Slept Here (building off of what Auld had mentioned with the other ghost shows)

Partners in Crime

*BLINK* I never even heard of Jennifer Slept Here. Now I am curious.
I wish that I could say the same about Partners in Crime.... :P

*EDIT* And on the subject of bad inspiration... Holmes & Yoyo....

Masquerade

Don't ask me how I remember this show, or the fact that I could find the song... I would be lying if I didn't say that this show didn't have a profound impact for my love for spies.

I remember that show! Wow, I'd forgotten all about it until now. There's one I wish I could get episodes of now; I'd love to see it again.
Spencer for Hire, which spawned...

A Man Called Hawk (with motha-lovin' Sisco in the lead role)


Spencer for Hire and A Man Called Hawk were Dad/Son bonding shows for me.

This thread is awesome. I see no-one has mentioned the following...

CHiPs

Hawaii Five-0


Mentioned but not linked...

Remington Steele AKA the entire reason Brosnan got the Bond gig.

Moonlighting One of the best tv chemistry couples ever.

Both those shows really understood how to build off of romantic tension. Know what's a shame? The totally different career paths of the female co-leads in these shows vs. the male stars.

Well played sir, well played, but might I offer a riposte?

Yeah, baby! That's right! It's that bottomless pit of psychedelic kiddie Kool-Aid that also brought us...

this and

this and

this and

this and

this and

this and

this and

this and

this and of course

this and

this!

(Here's the later intro and the one for the remake)

And while we're mining this particular vein, I might as well bust out...

The Shazam! and Isis Hour!

Alf!

and Mork & Mindy!

Booyah!

Dude! Another one I'd forgotten all about. Wow, that rules.

Oh, and a couple awesome shows I'm still watching today - seriously, they're rerunning on Chiller...

I think my brain just broke.

Anyways, it wasn't just America making memorable television in the pre-90's. Check out these offerings from across the pond:

Blackadder (Intro and Outro)
Blackadder II (Intro and Outro)
Backadder the Third (In and Out)
Blackadder Goes Forth (You get the idea)

Yes, that's Doctor House you see in the later series ;)

Some more Hugh: Jeeves and Wooster (also starring Stephen Fry), A Bit of Fry and Laurie

Another classic show: The Young Ones

Enjoy!

No doubt. Scarecrow and Mrs. King is an excellent addition!

and now for some cartoon lovein

Well, since we're moving into the animated stuff, there's the one that's probably closest to our little corner of the world - that's right, Dungeons & Dragons!

(I recently rewatched this as well, since they're playing it on one of the cablets out here.)

Some of the other stuff U.S. kids of my generation lived and breathed...

G.I. Joe

The Real Ghostbusters (which had not one but two Cthulhu episodes, both written by J. Michael Straczynski)

Transformers

Robotech

Silverhawks (notable because it ended with the beginning of its first episode, allowing the show to run indefinitely without a break in continuity)

Defenders of the Earth

He-Man and the Masters of the Universe

Inspector Gadget

The Littles

Jem and the Holograms (but was she truly, truly, truly outrageous?)

And for fun, here's another espionage related one: Danger Mouse!

I know there's someone out there who'll remember these...

Worzel Gummidge (The Third Doctor as a Scarecrow)

Another I remember from the late 80's was The Witches and the Grinnygog, tho it hasn't survived long enough to make it onto YouTube - or so it seems.
