Anyone remember this?

Today at work, for some unknown reason, someone brought up old children-generated television programs from the late 70's to early 80's. The word "sleestak"came up. Ok, who can name the program it came from? My bet is that my brother Kevin will figure it out the quickest. We used to watch this program every week! Other characters from this particular show include, but not limited to: Rick, Will and Holly Marshall, Ta and Sa, and one of my favorites, Cha-Ka. Get it yet?....

If you haven't figured it out yet, this might be the clincher clue. Dinosaurs! A couple of the dino names were "Grumpy" and "Big Alice." Do you remember now? How about where the Marshall family lived? ....a cave. They had special stones that gave them visions of things. If you haven't gotten it yet, I'll help you out............

"Land of the Lost." Have I aged myself enough yet?

Here is a website for you to peruse.....rather humerous! And here are the infamous Sleestak.

I had it at "sleestak," but you didn't give me a chance to show off before you gave it away in your post! Do you remember that the actor who played Will also played Michael Horton on Days of Our Lives back when Mom watched that show and made us sit quietly from 12:30 to 1:30 P.M. while "her show" was on?

I knew it too! Was thinking that I could beat Kevin to the punch, but that didn't happen and you told anyway.
Kevin, I remember sitting with Mom every day. I grew to love that same soap opera, but did not know that young Will was later Michael Horton. Now I want to see photos to compare! Wow......amazing what one word (sleestak) can do to bring back so many memories...

Do either of you remember "Sigmund & The Sea Monsters"???

Scroll down a bit on this site to watch and hear the intro to Land of the Lost!

Here is a good site to see pics of Wesley Eure, the actor who won us over on Land of the Lost and then portrayed Days of Our Lives' Mike Horton when he fell in love with Valerie, the first inter-racial romance on daytime television.

I don't think that I do remember Sigmund and the Sea Monsters, but here is a site for you if you do.

Looks like the Land of the Lost link above isn't working. To view the opening (and dig that groovy theme music), click here instead. (And here is a later version.)

And the link that I gave (above) for Sigmund and the Sea Monsters includes the opening, too. Cheese-tastic!

I barely remember the seamonsters show. After viewing the pictures it came back to me. Vaguely....

You young pups, you. I guess you were pretty little when I was watching Sigmund. Thanks for the links, Kevin! I checked all of them...now I remember Mike Horton and the "Lost" music--everything. Ahhhh, to be a kid again... :0)
