Poll - Blast From the Past PART 2

Well, I had so much fun with the poll we did last night, that I decided to do another one! K and I spent about an hour and a half "reminiscing" about some of our favourite (and not-so-favourite) shows, and we came up with a bunch more match-ups. Including some that I can't believe we forgot the first time around. (Little House on the Prairie vs. Waltons. CLASSIC)!

So . . . here it is, for your enjoyment . . .

I'll also say that I was a bit surprised by some of the results of the first poll, especially the popularity of Bugs Bunny. I really thought no one would vote for him, since I love Mickey SO MUCH. Hee! More than anything, I find it interesting to think back on the stuff I used to watch back then, and consider it in the light of who I am now. After all, I was really young when most of these shows were on (in the 5 to 12 age range for most of them, I think). And I have really fond memories of some shows that were utter crap (by my current standards - I can't believe I just voted for Three's Company ::grin::). But that's part of the fun, isn't it?
