Did anyone else ever get the "Fraggle Rock Blues"? The feeling that you got that meant it was back to school tomorrow because it was on on Sunday nights?

And what about when Wayne Gretzky and the Edmonton Oilers dominated the NHL for most of the decade?

LOL! The Fraggle Rock Blues - I hear that! An even earlier memory of the same blues was hearing Lorne Greene's New Wilderness music... that meant "bath time" before bed on Sunday... (I still cringe when I hear it, which fortunately isn't often).

Anyone aside from ancient me, remember the tiny wax soda bottles with a little colored sugar water in them? Button candy on paper strips? Cloris Leachman as Lassie's "mom"? Cloris Leachman? Quisp and Quake cereals? the "Supermarionation" puppet shows (Fireball X-L-5, Supercar, Planet Patrol, Stingray, Captain Scarlett, and the original Thunderbirds), and the live action shows from the same studios (Space 1999, U.F.O.)? H.R.Puffinstuff? Admit your age, and admit you used to watch Crusader Rabbit and his sidekick, Raglan T. (Rags) Tiger!

What's this got to do with EMS? Nothing, but feels good to reminisce!

Richard. I used to love the Thunderbirds! Being from Ontario originally, we used to receive some TV stations from Buffalo NY. I think we had a grand total of 5 stations, but I always remember watching Rocketship 7, which had Don Joles ( please correct me if I'm wrong ) who was also the weatherman. Pretty corny show now that I look back, however it was good at the time!
