Here's some nostalgia.  During the 1970's, there was a TV monster movie program in Los Angeles (where I grew up) that ran on Saturday nights, called "Seymour Presents", which was the forerunner of the "rip on the movies you're showing today" shows, including "Joe Bob Briggs" and "Mystery Science Theatre 3000".  It starred Larry Vincent "Seymour", who showed the worst movies he could find, and he would pop into the lower corner of the screen, ripping on the film in real time.  It was so funny that it was the top rated TV program on Saturday nights, consistently beating programs on major networks CBS, NBC and ABC.

A friend of mine reminded me the other day of an episode where he was showing 2 really bad films back to back.  At the start of his program, he told the tv audience ""These movies are really terrible; you can stay here & watch these turkeys if you want or not, it's up to you; I'll be back in about 15 minutes". When the camera showed him later on, he was watching CBS's competing crime show "Mannix" on the TV in his office.  His sarcastic take on the movies was witty & campy before it was considered cool to do it, and his stuff still holds up today.

Wow, I just got reminded of the Goosebumps TV show and discovered there are episodes online, when last time I checked there weren't. I picked It Came From Beneath the Sink, as I remember the book - just started watching it and recognised Amanda Tapping from Stargate as the mother, and the main character is played by a girl who was in an X Files episode I watched recently. Actually both Amanda Tapping and that girl were in X Files episodes. Now I'm curious as to how many other familiar actors were in this show. Also got a nice nostalgia vibe going on big grin

I've been hankering for some Rocky and Bullwinkle. They used to play it on Cartoon Network late a night when I was a kid and I always thought it was cool. Now they don't even play it on Boomerang a channel devoted to playing old cartoons. And the fact that they're playing Dexter's Laboratory and The Powerpuff Girls as "old" shows makes me feel old myself and disappointed. No Rockey and Bullwinkle, no Looney Toons, it's ridiculous!

(I'm not mad that they are playing the shows of my childhood though, Dexter's Lab is still as awesome as it was back then).

I vaguely remember you talking about that Joshles. Ahh, the memories..

And the fact that they're playing Dexter's Laboratory and The Powerpuff Girls as "old" shows makes me feel old myself and disappointed.
Whenever I catch kids shows on telly or see the names in the TV guide, I don't recognise any of it. Kids shows these days just seem..not as good. Whatever happened to Bananaman, and Superted, or Roger Ramjet! I feel sorry for kids of today. They don't seem to replay the older shows anymore. A lot of the shows I saw as a kid were repeats from years before I was born. They had catchier theme tunes.

I actually have I think 8 VHS tapes of Rocky and Bullwinkle. I think I'd find it even funnier if I sat sown and actually watched it now...what with it being done in the hippie era and making fun of Ruskies.

Alas, the cartoons of my era...and hey look, Futurama is on there! big grin

I've seen episodes from all of these and most of these shows are either things I remember watching as a kid and liking, or ones I adored then and still do. You forgot Darkwing Duck on that list and classic Looney Tunes, but for me the ones in bold are my top picks off the list provided.

What, no love for Squigglevision?

Out of that list the ones that I remember with particular fondness are:
Duckman,
The Simpsons (the earlier stuff),
Ren & Stimpy (ditto),
The Critic, &
Dr. Katz.

I would also add:
Clone High &
The Power Puff Girls.

Learn it, I dare you. It won't get you anywhere in life, but it's a fun challenge and nostalgic for anyone who watched Animaniacs.

Not sure if this has been mentioned here, cause I'm too lazy to read through the thread...
So, for all those 90's Nickelodeon lovers like myself, they are going to air some of the best old shows on something called TeenNick late at night, starting soon on July 25th!! eek
here:

Don't talk to Billy West about that.  It upsets him to no end.

I don't know what all is in that lineup, but All That was probably my least favorite at that time.  I've seen Nickelodeon do runs of old shows before, and I'd actually be interested if they showed off their late 80s early 90s lineup from time to time.

I watch TeenNick a lot (I have a bit of a Degrassi obsession; it's not pretty), but I guess they haven't really been advertising this much, since this is the first I'm hearing of it. That promo video had clips from what looked like Double Dare and Legends of the Hidden Temple, as well as Clarissa Explains it All and the Stick Stickly Show (which seems really obscure to me, but reminds me of summer afternoons wasted by watching Nicktoon marathons). This could be really awesome, depending on which shows they choose to air.

Edit: Wikipedia knows what's what.

They just announced the first 4 shows that will start airing on the 25th are:   
Doug
Kenan & Kel
All That
Clarissa Explains It All

They said first 4 shows, so I'm guessing there will eventually be more. I'm hoping for some others like Rocko's Modern Life. Those 4 shows are good, but still kinda meh.

just heard that The Hub is toying (pun!) with the ideas of doing more '80s cartoon updates- including series like M.A.S.K, C.O.P.S., Stretch Armstrong, and even Candyland (I honestly didn't know there ever WAS a Candyland cartoon).

Intro for a great series from the 80ís, when conspiracies were real conspiracies, portly civil servants were real portly civil servants, and computers. . . ran DOS.

I watched the pilot for "Sliders" today.  That was an interesting show for the time.  The scene where Quinn met his 6th Generation self and had his equation solved absolutely blows me away, you know I really understand that feeling.

idk, in the mid 80s, my computer ran a fully preemptive, multithreading, multitasking operating system, had a colour graphical user interface, and used a two-button mouse. big grin
