1950 Except for the very poor families, ours seemed to be the last ones in my class to get one - 1957.
We were pretty lucky. We were the first family on our block to get a Soviet Murph-6 nuclear warhead. It came in a box of Wheaties. But my dad sold it to my cousin Hussein.
Sigh. I need to sleep
Wow! That’s amazing. I was born in 1959. We’ve probably seen more technological change in our lifetimes than occurred in the entire thousand years of the middle ages.
I can remember when I was like 3-6 or so and we only had a small black and white if we had one. I can still recall days without a tv which was good as I really read a lot!
I thought Captain Kirk’s communicator was cool when I was a kid. Now the cell phone my kid has is way cooler than Kirk’s communicator. Everyone has a TV in their pocket. And a phone. And a camera. And a computer. And an interactive encyclopedia. Amazing.
Born in 1996…I already had one. Time is a fascinating thing.
I remember watching Topo Gigio and Red Skelton and Bozo the Clown.
I’m so old that I remember when Gilligan’s Island and The Beverly Hillbillies were cutting edge TV, lol.
I remember coming home from elementary school in the late 90’s and early 2000’s and watching TV at my mom’s apartment. Mostly stupid cartoons and the Disney channel. I thought her TV was big and never thought there would be big screen TVs like today.
