What Were Your Favorite Childhood TV Shows?


What shows were you super into watching as a kid? I’ve always found this question to be a fun conversation starter (“They just don’t make TV like they used to!” “I know, riiiight!?”) so I thought I’d bring it to the blog. I was truly obsessed with Saved by the Bell and loved watching the back-to-back episodes that came on right as I got home from school. I can still remember watching an episode during some down-time on a school trip when I was ten. One of our chaperones scoffed, “You all know that’s not what high-school is like, right?” *record scratch* In the words of Samuel “Screech” Powers, “EX-SQUEEZE ME!”

I also loved the cartoon version of Beetlejuice on Saturday mornings, reruns of Little House on the Prairie, and T.G.I.F. in all its various iterations. (Boy Meets World! Sabrina the Teenage Witch!)

Ok, now it’s your turn! Spill the beans below…

P.S. Have you seen this hilarious Saved by the Bell reunion orchestrated by Jimmy Fallon?

  1. Saved By the Bell was one of my favorites too! I also loved Family Matters, Step by Step, Full House–basically all of TGIF. Some of my favorite cartoons were Captain Planet, Hey Arnold, Recess, Fillmore, and The Proud Family.

    1. TGIF was BAE! I totally watched Recess on Saturday mornings…I think it gave me unrealistic expectations about what 4-Square matches should look like (read: VERY competitive, lol).

  2. How DARE you ask this question!! The list is endless. Sabrina (duh), Power Rangers, Boy Meets World, All That, honestly I’m getting overwhelmed.

  3. It’s funny, I’m going to date myself. I was very into Wonder Woman, Diff’rent Strokes, The A Team, Punky Brewster, etc But I watched all of that in Spanish. Sometimes I refer to characters, say from The Flintstones, as I know them in Spanish and no one knows who I’m talking about.

  4. Dukes of Hazard, The Love Boat, Dallas, Fantasy Island from the way, way back… The Cosby Show, The Facts of Life, Seinfeld, Friends, and nothing reality based!

  5. I had such a weird mix of favorite shows, from “Ocean Girl” to “Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman” to “Space Cases” Ha! Remember any of those?

    1. Oh man, SPACE CASES! That takes me back. I’m always surprised that I didn’t watch Dr. Quinn when I was a kid. I loved watching ER with my mom and was pretty much OBSESSED with anything prairie/out-west. Maybe I should watch as an adult, lol!
