We may have been late to the show.....Pretty sure it was a Magnavox....think it was 1968-1969....not one of those biggies with the stereo....like a 27 inch floor model.....not a remote control either. After that TV was never the same especially Saturdays and the toons...

I don't remember the brand but I think it was around that same timeframe. We've always had remote control at my house. My dad would say "Vickie, put it on channel 2". "Van, it's time for the news. Change the channel", etc. "Wendell... come here boy. Put in channel 4". He used us kids as his "remote control" and rarely "touched that dial" himself.
