12/14. Growing Pains and Full House tripped me up. Didn't watch those. Too new, I guess 😊

The My 3 Sons seasons with Mike are by far the best.

I know! I wish Mike and "Bub" (William Frawley) didn't leave.

I got 10/14. Not bad considering I was born in 1981. I watched some of the shows with my mom and grandma and there were a couple that me and my sisters watched normally. The rest I guessed on

13/14 Father knows best was way before my time. They should ask who is alive and who is dead in real life.
