We didn't get out first color TV until 1969. Dad refused to buy a new one 'til our old one died, so Mum told my older sister to whack the side of it every time she went past it (and she did it too). I assume she didn't tell myself or my younger brother due to fears of us inadvertently finking to Dad.
It worked. And the first show I saw in color was Hogan's Heroes. Didn't start to watch Trek until 1971 because my parents, who watched crap like Batman or Lost in Space, didn't like Star Trek!
I only saw one or two first run.
