    “Don’t touch that dial!” is a classic TV phrase. I remember Stan Lee saying it during Saturday morning cartoons.

    Hmmm, wonder how many calories that used up?

    Depends on how far to the TV from your chair.

    I wonder if infomercials still say, “don’t touch that dial!” now that are remote-controlled televisions.

    Nelson probably ever heard of a black & white
    TV either.

    And trying to switch from VHF (standard stations) to UHF (where Public Broadcasting Stations were usually found): had to switch the antenna (either the one on the roof or the ‘rabbit ears’. Sometimes a big old thunderstorm would knock the roof antenna out of kilter and Dad would have to climb up and readjust it while Mom, my neighbors, my sister and I would stand in strategic places in the house and the yard, shouting instructions a la “the Telephone Game”: “Too fuzzy” (echo echo echo), “Back a little bit” (echo echo echo), “Whoa, too far!” (echo echo echo), and so on until it looked good. I was the tv watcher until Mom and Dad realized I definitely needed glasses. I was delegated to yard echo and Dad had to crawl onto the room again. I got glasses the next day.

    Some shows are worth the effort needed getting up to change the channel to something else.

    And that’s how networks set their schedules. They would put a mediocre show between two good shows on the theory tht the average clod would be too lazy to get up from his seat to change the channel.

    I’m guessing that he did not get up to change the channels, there had to be a baby brother or sister…The way he does nothing now, he had to have been that way for a long time..

    Have a good weekend everyone and dont forget to put your flag out tomorrow…I’m putting mine out

    TV’s had remote controls back in the 50’s, too. “Johhny, change it to Channel 5.”

    Put down your remote control

    Throw out your TV Guide

    Put away your jacket

    There’s no need to go outside

    Don’t you know that we control the horizontal

    We control the vertical, too

    We gonna make a couch potato out of you

    That’s what we gonna do now
    .

    Don’t change the channel

    Don’t touch that dial

    We got it all on UHF

    Kick off your sneakers

    Stick around for a while

    We got it all on UHF

    Don’t worry ’bout your laundry

    Forget about your job

    Just crank up the volume

    And yank off the knob

    We got it all, we got it all, we got it all on UHF

    I suppose if that 60’s Batman TV show were being produced today, they’d change “don’t touch that dial” to “don’t touch that remote.”
