Since there's nothing in the OP regarding any kind of clues or help, I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess....

Now that it's answered, let's talk about our favorite retro shows. I loved Different Strokes, Silver Spoons, Webster, CHiPs, A-Team, Happy Days, Good Times. I loved all their theme songs/openings. My favorite of opening of all-time is from Good Times when they showed The Sugar Shack painting by Ernie Barnes. I can only find the closing credits.

Wonder Years, Brady Bunch, I Dream of Genie (Jeannie??), Bewitched, The Munsters, Happy Days, Laverne and Shirley, The Beverly Hillbillies, Andy Griffith Show were all my jam. Probably dozens more.


I did go back a few years ago and watch literally all of Cheers on Netflix. Maybe the best sitcom of all time

Yes, all those except for Hillbillies and Andy Griffith Show.

Oooo Dennis the Menace. The original show.

Can't forget OG Woody Woodpecker, Bugs Bunny, Looney Toons, Inspector Gadget, Transformers, Duck Tails, G.I. Joe.

I wish they would put Cheers/Night Court on reruns like they do with other shows. Those were just great comedy.

Still one of my favorite shows back in the day was WKRP in Cincinnati.

Just how old are you people. Kidding mostly, but as someone who spent most of their late 80s/early 90s being babysat by my Grandma in the summer, I do remember watching a few. CHiPs was easily my favorite, along with Family Matters, The Cosby Show, Full House, Growing Pains. Taking a look at the following site brings back a lot of memories.


Edit: More coming to mind now like Rescue 911, Unsolved Mysteries, and Sliders. I remember a bit from Quantum Leap as well but not a lot.

I grew up watching a lot of old re-runs too many to name. Plus the new shows my family would watch at the time. I’ve wanted to go back rewatch some old shows but my backlog of recent shows is huge!

I re-watched X-Files before the first new season from a few years back. That was a LONG watch. It was around 200 45 minute episodes.

Well I'm 30 so younger than you it seems! Also, Growing Pains was like my favorite show growing up. Never forget that Mike Seaver's best friend's name was Boner.

I think I made it through 5 seasons when I tried that. Or whichever season was the last before the first movie. Got burnt out on it and would like to go back at some point.

Night Court is on the Laff channel.
