Pick: What would you watch on TV in 1968?

Are you Team Spock or Team Gomer?

What a year! And they call today the golden age of television. Bah! The schedule was stacked with classics in 1968 — stacked! So many of our favorites were on the air that year.

Which makes it a particular hard year to play What Would You Watch? There were no VCRs, no DVRs. You had to pick and stick.

So, what would you have watched? Pick from below and see how your tastes compare!
  1. We begin on a sunny Saturday morning. You have a big bowl of new Cinna-mum-m-m Cereal. Time for some cartoons. Pick one to watch at 10AM.

  2. After a Saturday afternoon of playing outside, you eat dinner and settle down with the family in front of the TV. What is on at 7:30PM?

  3. Okay, now that show's over. Turn the knob to channel at 8:30PM.
  4. Sunday is here. Dad watched sports on TV all day, but now you have control. What to watch at 7PM?
  5. Good news — Monday is a holiday! You have no school. Watch something on TV at 10:30AM.
  6. It's now 4PM and you've been watching TV all day. Hey, it's a day off. What's on now?

  8. Okay, what are you watching next at 8:30PM?
  9. Here's a tough choice for winter Monday at 10PM.
  10. It is now Tuesday. After a long day at school, you've done your homework. Now watch something on TV at 7:30PM.
  11. On Wednesday back in spring, here's what was on at 7:30PM. What did you watch?
  12. What about Thursday at 7:30PM?
  13. Back to the fall lineup. Here's what was on Thursday at 8:30PM. Tough choice, but you get to make it.

80% similar. Some were tough choices.

72% similar, which is more than I expected to be. Back then, most homes had only one television set, if any. My choices reflect what I would have watched if I'd had my choice, but I would have been outvoted on many of these, and would have ended up watching my brothers' choices instead.
