What was your favorite kid's show growing up? Do your own kids watch now?

Mine was Simpsons and Inspector Gadget, and Ki loves them both.

  • There are a bunch I loved, two were Johnny Quest and Banana Splits, the boys love both of them. There are a bunch of others that I use to watch and I hate to admit it, but most times I'd rather watch those then regular "grown up" tv. lol And, yes, the boys watch most of them with me, except the ones that are on past their bedtime.

  • I loved He-Man, Jem, Thundercats, David the Gnome, Quantum Leap, Ninja Turtles, Fraggle Rock, Full House, Smurfs, She-Ra, and all the OLD HB cartoons .
    My kids watch and love all of those, and so many more. They like old school movies and tv shows better than the stuff they put out these days.

  • Mommymonkey,I loved Ninja Turtles too! I even dressed as one for Halloween three years in a row! Ki hates it though, she leaves the room if my husband and I are watching the movie, says it to boyish for her. :-)

  • OMG! David the Gnome! I'd completely forgotten about that. I loved watching Captain Planet. Unfortunately, I don't see that on anymore except once in a blue moon. I also liked Shining Time Station, but now all of that's been replaced with just stories of Thomas the Tank Engine.

  • I liked Lady Lovely Locks, Strawberry Shortcake, Rainbow Bright, and most of all...Little House on the Prairie, lol. I was obsessed!! As I got a little older, I loved "Are you afraid of the dark?". :)

  • None of the shows I watched as a kid are on anymore. Maybe on cable or something, but we only have bunny ears. So no, they don't watch anything I did. Wait - I take it back - Little House on the Prairie & the Cosby show still rerun, and we occasionally watch those.
