Top 20 Kids’ TV Shows From the 50s, 60s, 70s

Children’s TV shows children are more than entertainment. They bring back memories of simpler times. They’re also money-making commodities for networks and studios that offer endless potential.

Although the TV world in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s was vastly different from the one we see today, these shows for kids were all produced by big companies like Comcast. Their goal was to make a lot of money.

While some children’s programs had large budgets, others were able to do their shows on a tight budget. We loved both, however. Sometimes, all that is needed to make television great is imagination.

20 The Yogi Bear Show

Yogi Bear is everyone’s favorite ever-hungry grizzly. Yogi and his adorable sidekick Boo Boo caused all manner of mischief in Jellystone Park.

It’s not known that Yogi Bear actually is a spinoff series. The title character was originally in The Huckleberry Hound. Hanna-Barbera was not prepared for Yogi Bear to become more popular than Huckleberry Hound.

Yogi Bear is one of Hanna-Barbera’s greatest successes, despite the fact that it ran for a shorter time than other shows. The 2010 movie starring Dan Aykroyd, and Justin Timberlake, was a financial success. It grossed $203.5 million with a budget of $80million, which proves that Yogi still makes money many years later.
