Since my childhood, I have always had a great passion for television and the great cinema classics. From Pépinot to Saturnin via Batman Star Trek and Road Runner and of course the Planet of the Apes and later discover the Twilights Zone. I have known black and white and color television. For several years now I have been lucky to rediscover on YouTube and on the web my great youth television shows. I remember so much of myself as a little child sitting on the edge of the television in the living room on rue Chabot watching my favorite shows very close to the screen, with my little brother Daniel. I wanted to share with you a little bit of my childhood memories, here are my favorite shows that marked my imagination.
