In those days advent of TV was something of a new experience. Anything shown on that small screen was just welcome and people followed serials like you have mentioned including Mougli and Shekhar Suman's debut in Wah Janaab.
But this is not to say that those serials were not so good and all that. In fact Hum Log, Buniyad, Yeh Jo Hai Zindagi etc were much better than today's Saas/Bahu affairs, in the sense they had more content. Today what we see has less content and more repetitiveness and colouful presentation which is quite superfluous. Situations are blatantly contrived and conflicts and their resolutions are a bit too obvious. Today's serials are too loud and shrieking. No subtlety even for namesake.
Vikram and Vetaal are those perennial stories which fall in the classical genre and will always appeal to young and old alike. With technology advancing by the day, a Vikram and Vetal if again made today would be equally eye catching as the earlier one if not more!

Yeh jo hai zindagi - comedy crapper with satish shah , shafi inamdar and ms,tendulkar. it was too very good
buniyad and hum log - neat family serials coming in once in a week.
today channels are more about packaging , presentation , make ups , larger than life sets . content is not king. presentation and packaing is in
vikram and betal - mostly was a fictional character , made for kids but enjoyable
