Do you watch old movies and tv shows with your kids?

We recently started watching the original season of Knight Rider, and we just watched all the Back To the Future movies with my kids (who are 11, 10, and 4) and they loved them. They are very into the movies that we watched when we were younger now! And of course my 4 year old is in love with Care Bears, Strawberry Shortcake and My Little Ponies. The cartoons of today just can't compare ;-)

  • Oh yes! Mork & Mindy, ALF, MASH, the original Star Trek series, The Honeymooners, I Love Lucy, Knight Rider, Seven Days, Emergency One, Brady Bunch, and more! Plus old movies featuring Cary Grant, Doris Day, Bob Hope, Don Knots, Abbott & Costello, Boris Karloff, The Three Stooges, Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, and I could go on and on and on! They just don't make good television or movies like they used to, and certainly not much that is appropriate for children anymore.
