Favorite TV shows from your childhood

Growing up in the 1950s, I was a "TV kid" from a very early age, and have lots of favorites from that decade. My all-time favorite is definitely Captain Midnight, starring Richard Webb, Sid Melton and Olan Soule. A truly great Cold War / sci-fi series that captures the feel of the '50s. Due to legal complications, the show was retitled Jet Jackson, Flying Commando for syndication. They even went so far as to re-dub the episodes so that the name "Captain Midnight" came out "Jet Jackson". I have all but ten of the thirty-nine episodes on VHS, and I eagerly await the day that entire series is available on DVD.
