How many of you remember watching this? I enjoyed watching it, but I'm thinking it was more because I enjoyed being with my grandpa more :wink:

I remember the famous Marlin Perkins quotes like "mean while, while Jim's down stream" and "just as a mother bear protects her cubs, Mutual of Omaha protects you" the show was so well done and you always learned something and came away with a good feeling after watching it. Gosh I miss tv from those days! Thanks for bringing up a nice memory Michelle!
