Storyline

In the mid 1960's, the last of the old American television shows converted from black and white to color. At the same time, America was undergoing an epic cultural revolution. The Stars from those shows who were children, when we were children, witnessed those changes from the "inside" while they were growing up "in" television, and growing up in America. That era of Black and White family television didn't last long and it ended seemingly overnight. It would be the last time that America, in mass, was tied together with the same high-ideal family television! "America and television changed" and so did the way families would relate!" As a sub-story, many of the actors from those early shows are currently artists. You'll see their work and their passion in addition to their unique perspectives on this very tumultuous time in American history. Written by Sean Laskey

Quirky Documentary... but cool!
9 January 2009 | by titomnndezSee all my reviews

No one "ever" asks these former childstars what they think! It was cool to see a focus on how the old shows affected America... and "why" they did. People today wonder if those old shows were supposed to "realistic" or what. This show takes a nice approach at clarifying how different those times were and how powerful television was.

I also didn't know that most of these stars are currently artists! It was cool to see that Bill Mumy is a singer/songwriter, Tony Dow is a sculptor, Angela Cartwright is a painter/photographer, Stanley Livingtson is a stained-glass artist, and Don Grady is a music composer for Disney! It was great to hear their thoughts and insights in a very well produced film!
