Were you a fan of "Bewitched" and "I Dream of Jeannie," "The Andy Griffith Show" and "The Dick Van Dyke Show," "Gilligan's Island" and "The Beverly Hillbillies"? Or did you prefer something more futuristic, like "Star Trek" and "The Jetsons"? Whatever your preference, '60s television had some of the best shows in the history of the medium. Not only did many of them pave the way for some of the shows on air today, they also produced some standout actors and actresses.
Many of the shows went on for years after the 1960s passed, and many of the characters went on to have spin-off shows. Some of them, like "Hawaii Five-O," "The Twilight Zone" and "Mission: Impossible," have been rebooted or have made their way onto the big screen.
