Do you remember My Three Sons?


Growing up, watching My Three Sons was a weekly Saturday night tradition. My Mom loved it as much as we did.

(btw, When my 3rd son McKay was born, instead of my doctor saying, "It's a boy!" he said, "My Three Sons!!")

I just found out this reunion was on a morning show last month. I had no idea. I hope you enjoy this clip as much as I did.

I guess you have to be sort of old to appreciate this. I'm not sure my sons even know what this show is.

Watch for the little flashback clips.





It ran from 1960-1972. So I was in kindergarten when it began and in 12th grade when it completed. No wonder I remember it...that was my childhood.

So please tell me I'm not the only one who remembers this show...

I remember this show. I loved it. I have even wanted to get it on DVD. Does this mean that I am old???

Chip was a dork. Robbie was Mr. Cool and Ernie was a nerd. The dad was a widower aeronautical engineer played by Fred McMurray. No I don't remember it.
Wendys favorite show of that era must have been I Dream of Jeannie. Whenever I chuckle at something she says, which happens several times a day, she says, "do I amuse you Master?"

I remember this show Jill, but then I'm an ancient person. Thanks for the memories. Susan

Ohhhhhhhhhh I loved My Three Son! Although Robbie seems a little creepy here, he was everyone's favorite I think...

Eileen said...

Yes! We watched this show all the time too, both my parents loved it. I remember feeling like it was hard to get used to Uncle Charlie at first after Bub was gone, and also when Mike left and then Ernie came into the family.
I wish this show's reruns were aired the way 'I Love Lucy' is. I miss those old shows a lot!
Did you watch any of these?
My Little Margie
Father Knows Best
The Donna Reed Show
Ozzie And Harriet

I'M OLD!!
Great post, Jill!
All the best,
Eileen

My Three Sons was a family favorite in our home, too (as were Father Knows Best, Ozzie and Harriet, The Donna Reed Show, I Dream of Jeannie, Bonanza, Wonderful World of Disney, I Spy...). Remember when watching TV was a bonding family event most nights? We were parked in front of the TV, but it was ONE television and we were all together discussing the shows.

I thought Robbie was cute, but I had a secret crush on Chip. And Ricky Nelson. And Little Joe. And Davy Jones. And...

Jill said...

Eileen...I watched them all, except I have near heard of My Little Margie!

Rebecca...I agree. Robbie did look a little creepy in this clip. He looked so wholesome when he was younger and on the show.

Jill said...

Mary...I was a big Ricky Nelson fan. Ozzie and Harriet use to come on at 6pm as reruns when my sons were young so we would watch that most nights after dinner. During that period of time is when Ricky was killed in that plane crash and my boys were so sad about that.

Jill said...

Notice how no one younger is commenting? They probably wonder what the heck we are talking about. I was thinking last night about how when McKay was born the dr said, "My 3 Sons" and I've always told McKay that story, but I don't know if I ever told him that was a TV show!

I visit teach a lady in my ward who was engaged in high school to one of the boys on My Three Sons. I think it was Robbie but I can't remember which one for sure.

This 'young gal' remembers them all! Thank you for the trip down Memory Lane. Trivia question: without looking it up, who remembers in what TV series Robbie's real life sister starred?

Jill said...

I have no idea. Never heard that before. Please do tell.

Mom of 3 Boys said...

We watch re-runs...does that count? I'm also among the "younger-ish" set.

Check your email...I wrote you back...

I loved My Three Sons!!! I love all of those shows because those were my 'growing up' years and things seemed so simple back then. I also remember when our third son was born and I would always comment about 'my three sons'. Those were such fun times. Thanks for the walk down memory lane!
