More of The Baby Boomer's Guide to 1950s TV !

MoreofTheBabyBoomersGuideto1950sTV Photo Whether you accept the 1946-1964 era as the Baby Boomer timeline or, as some observers argue, the period 1942-1953, for us the 1950s was the first decade to shape our view of the world. I was born in 1947, spending my formative years in the "City That Never Sleeps".

The 50s was the first full decade of television programming in the US, and the novelty was a long way from wearing off. For many families the "boob tube" would serve as a handy, if curious, choice of babysitter. It was to be enjoyed AFTER finishing homework, of course. And all of this coming before we learned of the "dangers" of watching too much TV!

Television provided us with some memorable characters, and more than its share of forgettable ones. This quiz focuses on the actors and characters of those 1950s TV shows, including a glimpse at racial casting on some of the shows.

Enjoy, and I hope you had your ginseng and gingko today!

I was just a wee bit too young for a few of those, but do remember others fondly. Thanks for the quiz.

there were some stalls between some questions, no reflection on the quiz, but perhaps due to technical problems of band width at the sites server
