anyone remember the childrens show 3-2-1 contact? It was on PBS. Remember when saturday morning cartoons rocked? Every local channel had some thing kid related on? Our tv downstairs didnt go passed the local channels if you used the channel buttons, so they were all I knew of lol. Plus it was b&w! I remember buying a color tv. I was born in 1980
