Some contenders:

Sesame Street
Mister Rogers Neighboorhood
Electric Company
3-2-1 Contact
Mr. Wizard
Captain Kangaroo (forgot about the Captain, thanks Guido)

If you're younger:

Barney
Blue's Clues
Dora the Explorer
Teletubbies

If you're older:

Howdy Doody
Bozo

There were also a ton of regional shows that weren't seen outside the local market (I actually think that Bozo started as a Chicago based show)

I watched all of the first five listed religiously say 10 years old and younger

As far as a favorite goes I would say Sesame Street, but my mom says that mine was actually Mr. Rogers, I guess its quieter and softer nature appealed to me

I know for a fact I watched Captain Kangaroo as a kid but I swear I don't remember a thing about it

Never heard of New Zoo Revue - but Annie Jo is kinda cute
