Teen Idols of the '60s and '70s

  1. Who was your favorite teen idol of the 1960s or 1970s? I had two: Bobby Sherman and David Cassidy.

    Bobby then:

    Bobby now:



    He's a paramedic and I'd let him do CPR on me anytime!

    David then:

    David now:



    Yeah, I'd let him assist Bobby Sherman with the CPR.

    Next?

    I had SUCH a crush on Bobby Sherman!! I wasn't into Donny Osmond or David Cassidy (although I loved the Partridge Family and still own their first album), but I had it bad for Bobby........I'd sit there in front of the TV watching "Here Come the Brides" and just drooooooooling.:heartbeat

    My first love, though, was Michael Landon, who played Little Joe on "Bonanza" for 14 seasons and then went on to play a dad himself on "Little House on the Prairie". That man was hot, hot, HOT!!! In fact, I fell 'in lust' with him at age 9 and never really stopped until the day he died in 1991.

    "In lust" at age 9? Wow Marla - you were precocious!

    All the guys in The Monkees were my favorites. But I just wanted to sing with them . . .

    The Osmonds were the White Jackson 5 . ... . I loved both groups but didn't have a crush on Donnie.

    I remember Leif Garret . . . he was cute.

    Some of these guys have aged well . . .or maybe it is botox.

    Oh, yeah, Michael Landon was so gorgeous....and he seemed so nice! Taken from us way too soon.





    I loved "Here Come the Brides" too!

    Yep - Little Joe, very handsome. I loved that show too.

    Fonzie and Richie . . .both crush-worthy but in opposite ways.

    I liked James Garner too - The Rockford Files. But he was too old for me.

    Sonny!! Loved the Sonny and Cher show!

    Star Trek and Capt. Kirk! I liked Bones too - and Spock.

    MASH - I could have a beer or two with Hawkeye but I really liked B.J. Hunnicut.

    My very first TV crush was...

    ...please don't laugh...



    Robin, the Boy Wonder. Not Burt Ward the actor, but Robin the character. When I was seven, I wanted to marry Robin when I grew up. I wanted to be Batgirl.

    Excellent taste, especially the men of Star Trek.





    I loved the new movie, especially Spock!





    But the most attractive of the Star Trek men---my own beloved, the Grand Nagus:

    Michael Landon.....I got to shake his hand back in 1972.....definite dreamboat!!!

    I don't remember who the actor was, but I loved watching a show called "Quincy MD". He was a coroner.

    Fell in love with John Travolta when he was Vinnie Barbarino on "Welcome back, Kotter".

    I was so in love with Peter Noone from Herman's Hermits. He is still touring but without the original 'hermits'. Happy to say that an old friend/musician, Vance Brescia tours with Peter now.
