Every teen and adult has a memory of the things they use to watch as a kid. At least, every one I know does. Once upon a time the television aired kid cartoons by the thousands! Almost every station had a time of day where they would show nothing but kid cartoons. What airs on the limited three channels for kids now are so absurdly annoying, I want to rip my hair out just listening to them! Maybe it’s better that way. Getting kids out and about is a better option than turning them into addicts who are obsessed over deformed, discolored, ugly, squeaky, unidentifiable-creatures-whose-name-I-can’t-even-pronounce-without-spitting-all-over-things.
As we grew out of the baby years (ages between a couple of months to 3) my parents were very strict on “TV time” which I think is a good thing. We only had our lunch hour during the day to watch television, and then a little time in the evening. During those times we were able to watch the television, some of the best shows used to come on, some of the later shows I wouldn’t mind watching today. Shows like Seven Little Monsters, Dragon Tales, and Little Bear mad up most of my TV experience as a toddler. Then, The Little Mermaid, Hey Arnold, Rocket Power, Pepper Anne, Reeces, CatDog, The Crocodile Hunter, and of course, The Wild Thornberrys made up my 7-10 year-old TV program list. There were so many shows to see as a child. My favorite, however, was Rugrats.
The Rugrats was my favorite childhood show. I loved when the show came on. When our TV time was over, my sisters and I would use our imaginations just like they did, and discover whole new worlds of our own. I thought Rugrats was such a great show when I was a child, and it very soon became my favorite!
