What was your favorite show when you were a young child?

I really liked Captain Kangaroo.  Him along with Mr. Moose, and Mr. Greenjeans, with Bunny Rabbit and Grandfather clock, was something that I would count on watching every weekday morning.  Yeah, they pretty much did the same thing, but it was still fun to watch.  Anybody else got one that they have fond memories of?

My apoligies Speli, I always get that name mixed up. I wondered why your avatar seemed so familiar.

Does anybody remember Lambchop?  I can't remember the exact name of the show.

Lamchop's Play Along
Or something like that. I used to watch that. I think I used to watch Stop the Smoggies, and I know I watched Chip n' Dale Rescue Rangers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. That's all I can remember.

For pure cheesy weirdness, there was nothing that matched The Electric company. It had Spider-Man, it had a guy in a gorilla suit, it had a young Morgan Freeman, hell, what DIDN'T it have?

The electric company rocked. I don't remember it at all though. Damn, all those years of drinking and partying hard have taken their toll.

Also good: Disney Afternoon (sans gummi bears and tail spin)
Animaniacs (i wasn't exactly a child then)
the original X men cartoon, which i loved with the passion of a million white hot suns, but which, upon more recent viewing, made me want to kill myself

Hey VelourFog, what was weird, was that when they showed the X-men cartoon in Japan, they had this really wild original opening sequence, done in anime style, with a good rock tune, then the regular show started, and it was literally two different worlds in style.  Oh, if they could have only done the whole cartoon in that opening anime style. <sigh>

I still enjoy kids' shows. In a matter of fact, that's all I really watch. Freakazoid!, cartoon network, you name it... By the way, VF, I used to love the original X-men and had a crush on Gambit (Not that kind, you pervs).

If we're talking programs back when we attended Kindergarten and stuff, I agree with Spiff 100% (I actually learned a lot of German watching that show).

If we're talking generally: Darkwing Duck, Duck Tales, Chip 'n Dale - Rescue Rangers, Looney Tunes, and some other stuff (mostly domestic programs though).

Speli:  I'm with you. LOVE Pete & Pete.  I even collected some of Polaris' MP3s off the internet, so I can indulge in Pete and Pete music whenever I feel.  Where are they now, I wonder.  I bet that chick who played Ellen is fiiiiine.

When it comes to kid shows...

There's a power that comes from deep inside of you, when everyday you're reaching for the light.  And you know there's a long long way ahead of you, but let your wheels take you there, thing will turn out right!

Ellen is in college right now, I heard she's hot. Polaris disappeared, and I'm disappointed, because their music was so...touchingly different. But, they will live on with the people who still love the spirit of Pete & Pete, which is hard to understand, unless you've seen the show and realized it's beauty. *High fives Clemens*

I still watch cartoons and kid shows. I'm a teenager, I probably haven't heard of these shows mentioned, but my favorite show from like six to ten was Dexter's Lab. still great. almost all CN shows are good. Nick is getting worse, but there are some good shows on there. Also, the adventures of pete and pete gets shown time to time.

I'm not sure, it's on nick, in the afternoon they have this "choose the show" thingy where you can pick wha show you wanna see out of about three chioces. I'm not completely sure on this, though, but I saw it the other day.

On Nickelodeon's spinoff channel "Noggin" aka The N. Noggin also shows (or used to) Electric Company early in the morning, Daria, The New Degrassi Series (which I don't watch because I watched the original Degrassi as a teen and all I can say is- melodramatic soap opera for moody teens). The only shows really worth watching are Pete & Pete and Daria.

Oh, that. I thought you meant on Nickelodeon itself. I get Noggin, and yeah, the only worthy shows are Pete & Pete and Daria.

second. I still watch that show sometimes. Other shows that I liked: Hallo Spencer (that was my favorite for a long time. The Quietsch Boys absolutely ruled, they even were the reason why I learned to play an instrument), Jim Knopf, Duck Tales, teenage mutant hero turtles, The Bugs Bunny show (which I still watch), the Disney Show,  and somewhere in the early nineties I must have started watching the Simpsons (edit: even though it's not a kid's show, I watched them as a child. I'm sure that I didn't get about 90% of the jokes but I liked the yellow folks anyway. tehe maybe that indicated my transition to 'adulthood'). When I was very young I even got up at half past five in the morning to watch some of these. I made my parents always mad when I woke them up to ask if I was allowed to watch TV.
