7 TV Celebrities Your Parents Loved
The trailer for the new movie Julie & Julia brings back fond memories. Julia Child was the first voice impression I perfected as a teenager. My kids have no idea who she was. At the same time, they know who Billy Mays was and I didn’t until his recent death made the news. That caused me to think about the celebrities my generation shared and of whom those of you who are under 35 probably have no experience. It didn’t take long to think of a half-dozen people who achieved television fame in the 60s, 70s, and 80s even though they weren’t actors or singers. Meet them in this article I wrote for mental_floss. Since most folks who visit this site are older, this will be a walk down memory lane for you!
