Please Don’t Eat the Daisies

Occasionally I’ll get a random childhood memory stuck in my head and, being the co-author of a wildly successful Internet Web Site, it becomes my duty to share it with you. Today, it’s the TV show Please Don’t Eat the Daisies.

Everything I remember about the show is hooked into its intro, which involved an animated sheepdog eating a daisy. It was the 60s, man. Everything else I remember about the show? Well… it was a sitcom… and it was in color. That’s it.

The only other association I made with the show was Daisy Brand Sausage. When I was young and I’d go to the supermarket with my mother, I’d notice the Daisy Sausage in the meat case (yum!) Somehow, in my head, this was twisted into “Please don’t eat the Daisy Brand Sausage.” Yes, I was doing marketing at the age of 6.

Sadly, this page on the show didn’t spark up any other memories for me. Why would I be watching this show in the first place? Was television that bad in the early 1980s? Well, don’t answer that.

Does anyone else remember this show at all, and have any specifics on it?

I love that I found somebody to talk too. I mean about Please Dont Eat The Daisies! Trivia Ques needed answered. What was the Sheepdogs name?? The movie was with Doris Day, But the sitcom or series on t.v. was with Pat Crowley.
Oh, The Ghost and Mrs. Muir was a great one. I cant believe Im gonna be 50 and I think Im too young to remember these things!! My favorite was Johnny Questand yes I remember vaguely Van Dykes first show. Theres a whole slue of them:
Combat, Gidget, Outer Limits, Dark Shadows, It takes a Thief, Man From Uncle, Soupy Sales. Top Cat, Bilko, Mchales Navy, Magilla Gorilla, F Troop, *Voyage to The Bottom of The sea, Lost In Space, Family Affair, That Girl, The Time tUnnel, Hogans Heros, Red Skelton, Eddies Father and Wild, Wild West.
I think this was great television! Its better then the reality shows and crap we have now. Next to Denny Crane. and Rescue Me, All these can be found at Movies unlimited and deep discounts. Like Alf and Fraggle Rock too. good watching.
