Born in 1953. Had to go to bed at 7 until I turned 8. Then I could stay up til 8.
This still put me in bed when this came on, but I still remember the music when my dad watched the program since my bedroom was right next to the living room.
Was able to watch the program in the 66/67 season, but this particular theme had already captured my psyche.
Now I'm going to include "The Avengers" on my list of TV programmes that influenced me in my childhood, because in the early 1980's, the series was repeated on TV in the U.K. - My Grandmother sometimes looked after us, after School, and she didn't mind us watching Emma Peel doing karate chops on baddies or being in peril, while wearing figure-hugging leather from head to toe ("Diana Rigg as Emma Peel" is a category of influence all in it's own category! So I won't go into it, here). However, I SHALL comment, that the theme music (Along with "Spider-man and his Amazing Friends") is STILL my go to "inspirational music" inside my head that motivates me! I think it was the catchy pace - you can't shake it! It will remain classic TV, regardless of which decade you watch it in!
I used to be so ADDICTED to the reruns of this when I was a kid (born in 72). It's funny now that I can hardly remember anything about it... Meanwhile, "Mom always said 'Don't play ball in the house'" "Correction! I will be vaporized. You will just look silly hanging by your foot out in space!" "There is only one thing missing from my Disney Land, Ralph. I have nothing from The World of Tomorrow." "You want "The World of Tomorrow? I'll give 'ya The World of Tomorrow! You're goin' to the Moon!"
Emma Peel, the name was constructed as M. Appeal, or men appeal, believe it or not. There has never been a more convincing, tongue in cheek, intelligent, independent, strong beautiful sexy woman on TV or the silver screen like Miss Peel, unforgettably created by Dame Diana Rigg. May she be finally proud of that!
There's a business in Orlando, Florida that uses the theme song of the Avengers as background music for their radio add. Every time I'd hear the commercial I'd get frustrated because I would be familiar with the song but couldn't remember where it was from. I'm serious.. I'd go crazy. Finally, I found out. Hey..it's been well over 35 years I've heard it before the radio add!
