I'm talking up to about the age of 10 years old. Any type- it doesn't have to just be educational.

I used to watch

Size Small (A really obscure Canadian show that aired on PBS in the U.S- at least localy. Anyone else remember this).
Sesame Street.
Mister Rogers' Neighborhood.
3-2-1 Contact! (I wish this was still on in re-runs).

If I'm flipping through the channels and catch it; I'll still watch Sesame STreet, Bill Nye The Science Guy, or Mister Rogers'. Timeless fun (and hey; I even end up learning a thing or two still).

Captain Kangaroo - never missed it.

Locally, in the Chicago area...

Garfield Goose
Ray Rayner
Bozo's Circus

and lots of cartoons



We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

Adventures of Pete & pete
Salute Your Shorts
Are You Afraid of the Dark
Roundhouse
All That

Up through the age of 10? That would have been the Disney Afternoon: Gummi Bears, Duck Tales, Rescue Rangers, Talespin, Darkwing Duck. Big fan especially of Darkwing Duck.

Also Tiny Toon Adventures.

Bill Nye didn't premiere until '93, the year I turned 10, and I don't know when I first discovered it. But it was also awesome.

Sesame Street

Now

Sesame Street

All of the ones that I watch now are mostly due to my kids. However, I gotta admit that Imagination Movers is something that I enjoy....and Nina is pretty hot.

Yeah, I was also a watcher of stuff like 321 Contact, Electric Company, and that really long Pinwheel show on Nickelodeon that featured Bill Cosby's Picture Pages. I know it was after I turned 11 or so, but I will say that I have seen every Saved By The Bell episode many times over.

As for now, occassionally the niece makes me watch Dora or Spongebob with her.

Oh, I could go on and on.

Loved Sesame Street when I was really young--I was more or less in the original Sesame Street generation. Moved on to The Electric Company and Zoom as well. Other things I know I watched as a kid at some point:

Romper Room
Captain Kangaroo
The Krofft Supershow (I *loved* this.)
The Magic Garden
The Jackson Five Cartoon Show
Shazam!
Isis
Super Friends
Scooby Doo Where Are You
The Flintstones (definitely in reruns by the time I came along)
The Jetsons
Wonderama

And of course the best part of Saturday morning (other than maybe Dyna Girl) was Schoolhouse Rock~~!!

Again, I'm sure there were many others, and I'm not even counting things like Batman, Gilligan's Island, and The Brady Bunch I watched in reruns back then but which weren't really kids shows. Or things like game shows, for the same reason.

I watch SpongeBob daily. I think Nick plays it almost exclusively with some iCarly thrown in. I even DVR my favorite episodes.

And lots of Scooby Doo. That's the one I watched the most growing up. The old episodes are still the best, but the newish movies aren't bad.

That 60s version of Spider Man
Rocket Robin Hood
Battle of the Planets
Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies/The Bugs Bunny & Tweety Hour

A lot of the cartoons I watched (including the religious claymation of Davey & Goliath) were on The Commander Tom Show, which was local to Western New York and Southern Ontario.

Spongebob might be the smartest, funniest children's show I've seen in over a decade. The humor often works on many levels.

Most of the stuff I watched has already been mentioned, or else it's quite popular. For an oddity, I used to watch "Dusty's Tree House" when Nickelodeon first went on the air. Even at a young age, I knew it was awful and I would bug my friends to watch it with me, during the summer. They hated it, but I thought I was being funny by insisting on watching this low-level Captain Kangaroo rip-off.

I used to watch "Fraggle Rock" when it first came on HBO, circa 1982-1983 (usually right before, or after "Not (necessarily) the News"). Thanks to Netflix, I was able to watch the very first Fraggle Rock episode, just a few weeks ago. I had never seen it, until then. Didn't know that "Uncle Travelin' Matt" actually started out in Fraggle Rock. I thought he had always been in "Outer Space".

Say hello to The Hub (hubworld.com).

8:30 am, 2:30 pm Monday-Friday, and a couple episodes on the weekends as well, are now filling my DVR with Fraggle Rock nostalgia.
