There’s no point in being grown up if you can’t be childish sometimes.
I’m not sure I fully grok that quote but, as old as I am, I’m not willing to give up the right to be childlike (and sometimes childish) either.
The program itself is in Guinness World Records as the longest running SF TV show and, as it began in 1963, is exactly as old as I am although it took a break between 1989 and 1996 and then again until 2005. I missed it terribly.
For those Who fans who haven’t see it I recommend the Rowan Atkinson (et. al.) parody.
