^ Loved that show. Aah - TV nostalgia. My Three Sons was big for me (my dad was a solo parent.) Hogans Heroes, Get Smart, The Invaders, The Avengers..fantastic.

i remember that show...with blurp and slurp...and prince,big mamas pet lobster...
now sigmund and johnny and scott are friends

the kroft super shows...

That's right! Sid and Marty Kroft. They had some weird shows. H.R. Pufnstuf, Land of the Lost, The Bugaloos... I think those guys must have been high.

Anyone remember Underdog?
Not bird, not plane, not even frog, it's just little old me...Underdog!  

They're actually making an Underdog movie. I'm sure it will suck. It's like everything from the 70's is getting remade into some horrible movie. It's enough already.

Any idea who wrote the songs in the Banana Splits? From what I recall they were very Monkee-esque (ala Mary Mary).

I believe this show was out the same time as "H.R. Puffinstuff" with "Witchy Poo" etc?

The Bee Gees were and still are a guilty pleasure! Back in the day when everybody was screaming disco sucks and you know who you were, I was doing the same, but secretly listening to Staying alive, Night fever, Nights on Broadway and You should be dancing, in the car and in my room. Hell, I think To love somebody or maybe Words were some of the first 45's I owned. Closet listener or not, they still made some great music. 8)

 :D I only had the one Anne Murray single. I had the Bee Gees stuff A few years before. I started collecting around "72" With my dad handing me down classic rock and roll 45's......Elvis,Beatles,Eddie,Fats and so on. So by the time I started buying my own my closet was loaded up pretty good..... :D

Yes, that was their first appearence in TV, in 1960. That year, Barry was 13 years old, and the twins Robin and Maurice only 10 y.o.

I'm a big Bee Gees fan, I own over 20 of their albums, and there are all absolutely wonderful pieces.
More than the Beatles, the Beach Boys or any other group, the Bee Gees had the most perfect harmonizing I've ever heard.
Of course the most they sold was in the late 70's, but to me that was their worst period. Too much commercial, and I'm a fan of their ballad style. My favourite album of them is "Still Waters" (1997).

I have some early 60's recording from them (Ticket to ride & You wont see me from the Beatles, amongst other) and I must say that they sounded a lot like the Beatles back then but their style changed over the years.

I think they always will be underrated in the music history because of their disco phase....It's sad because all that the people remember from them is Saturday Night Fever. They have recorded better songs (in my opinion) before & after STF. Words, New York Mining disaster, Holiday, I started a joke, ect.....

Great. Their last album, "This Is Where I Came In", from 2001, is also really good. It does not contain so many "saccharine ballads" but a good modern rock sound. Highly recommended!

Never really liked the Bee Gees that much... They had a few good songs (especially Spicks & Specks), but the high voices are annoying...

If you are talking about their falsettos, well yes, maybe... But, even more than the Beatles or the Beach Boys, they had the greatest quality in vocal harmonies.

Nobody had better vocal harmonies than the Beach Boys...

So I followed pc31`s advice (my teacher) and aquired a CD by Bee Gees, greatest hits. I was enchanted by their songs and am now in love with them. I`ve just seen that Penny Lane has been litening to them too. Do you, guys, like them? Were they (nearly?) as great as the Beatles in the 60s? Did the British appreciate their music in the 60s?
