Celebrate Family Television Day

October 3rd marks the day many popular, family friendly television shows debuted. What better way to celebrate Family Television Day than to watch the opening of five shows that aired for the first time on the third of October. The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet – 1952
Captain Kangaroo – 1955

The Mickey Mouse Club – 1955
The Andy Griffith Show -1960
and
The Dick Van Dyke Show -1961

Did you know you can watch full episodes of these programs on YouTube? Of course, I’m sure reruns of many will also be aired today as well.
