If memory serves 1962 TV was dominated by westerns and some of them were among the best of the genre (Bonanza, Palladin and Maverick- a rare foray into comedy for a cowboy show). I think the best of TV was creative and well done. Rod Sterling had the Twight Zone presenting leading edge drama, Route 66 and 77 Sunset Strip were cookin'(and partly chronicling the new boomer generation). Prime time also had catoons, something I do not believe had happened before or since. (Does anyone remember the Flintstones included prime time Winston ads featuring Barney and Fred smoking and extrolling the vitues of "tasting good like a cigarette should'?) Of course my relative enthusiasm for these shows might be distorted by my youth at the time.

I guess your right and thanks for the heads up-but I think the heyday of those shows was earlier ca:1959-1960
