Fraggle Rock & Childhood Nostalgia...

I confess to being a child of the 80s... Fraggle Rock was one of my favorite shows as a kid. So you can imagine how much fun it is to spend a chilly fall morning snuggled up with my 4yo watching old episodes of the Fraggles.

Are there any shows (or musicians or activities or...) from your childhood that you share with your kids?

I LOVED the Fraggles!!! I'm also a child of the 80s. 

My kids don't like the Fraggles..boo! They DO love Strawberry Shortcake, My Little Pony ( although it has changed a lot over the years) and the BEST cartoon ever- SCOOBY DOO!!!!!!!!!!!!! My IL's gave Lilly a Mystery Machine with the first 3 seasons of SD on DVD several years ago and I can watch it for hours and not get tired! We have tons of SD shows and movies. 

Instead of watching tv while cleaning, I will put the tv on Sirius FM on the 80s channel a lot.. my girls are getting a healthy appreciation for the Go Gos, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Bon Jovi and Prince through that channel. LOL ... of course, some songs I wonder why my parents allowed me to listen to them...and here I am allowing my kids to listen to them as well since I loved them as a tween...

Lilly walks around singing " We Got the Beat" all the time.. and Karli sings " You Spin Me" constantly. LOL

This is too funny about Fraggle Rock...I almost bought Lu a t-shirt of Fraggle Rock on clearance today.  :)

Hmm...I will have to think about what I share with my children...it is a lot!

Scooby Doo, Smurfs, anything Disney from my day, Abba, Nsync, Backstreet Boys, Strawberry Shortcake, Care Bears, Muppets, etc... It is a lot...I find I prefer them to watch/listen to things which I loved...for one, I can tolerate it more and two, I have already pre-screened it then.  :)
