I just looked at the TV schedule for today, and noticed that TV Land is running a 12-hour marathon of TAGS episodes, starting at 7:00 a.m. Central Time.

The first episode they're running is "The Pickle Story," followed by "Barney and the Choir," then "Mr. McBeeVee" and many other favorites.

Just wanted to give everyone a "heads-up" in case you weren't aware of it. I'm about to fire up the TV set!

By the way, Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Watched a couple, but got too busy and did not see anymore. Sad if they were repeating episodes. Bad bad bad TV-Land if true.

you would think with 249 Andy episodes you wouldnt have to repeat anything (dont even get me started on cut scenes)

oooh, I watched some great episodes yesterday, the Darlings, mr. McBeevee...et al. TVLAND added 5 minutes to the shows but trimmed very little from the episodes. I'm hoping they have heard our disgruntled screams Wink

Thanks for the heads-up, Mr. Tucker. I got a chance to see most of the marathon where others were watching - and laughing.

I don't think Mr. McBeevee could be done today.
2 characters smoked, and there's a scene of a little boy talking to a grown-up man not his father.
And not having cable tv of my own, I was a bit confused what 'Hot In Cleveland' plastered on the bottom-left of my screen meant whilst Andy was talking to Opie at the window. Huh

You're welcome...I felt kind of bad after I started this thread, then realized that the same handful of episodes were being repeated during the 12 hours.

I know what you mean about certain elements in the episodes that would not be used today, such as smoking, and talking to strangers...it's funny how times have changed.

When I grew up in roughly that same era, smoking was commonplace (my Grandma and Grandpa smoked, and so did my Dad). Also, I remember many a time watching, and talking to, various workmen in our neighborhood.

I think that's one of the main reasons I like shows such as TAGS, as well as old movies -- it's kind of like going back home again.  Smiley

Say what you want dahhhhling,
but I married Ellen!

Talking to a gainfully employed pole climber is pretty tame.  Exspecially considering there were a couple hobos Opie had befriended.   Shocked

Also, too, back then a parent could feel reasonably safe letting a young'un run the neighborhood the way Opie did at such a young age.
