Did your family have a black and white tv when you were a kid?

We did. Little 13 inch black and white was out tv when I was really young.. I couldnt have been no more than 5 years old.
I told my son about this and he laughed his little butt off. He now puts me in the same category as dinosaurs as far as age goes, LOL.

  • We were the first family on the block who had a TV....back in the late 1940's. A black and white TV. FOUR channels...ABC,CBS and NBC and a Local channel. Those were the days of Howdy Doody. :-)
    The color TV arrived in 1966 when I was married.

  • We did for a long time when I was growing up. My husband got me a used b&w when I told him I wanted a TV for the kitchen. It lasted for many many many years.

  • Yeah, for a little while when I was really small, around 5 or so. My kid laughed at me too! First she told me I was joking, that all tvs always had color. Then she asked if I was as old as Granny and Mamaw!
