I don't watch TV anymore either. But I loved some of the ones in those lists. Dukes of Hazard, Laverne and Shirley, Knight Rider, The Jetsons, Tom and Jerry, Scooby Doo were just a few.

I agree with Baby Hercules; television shows LIKE Captain Planet taught me to care for the environment and the animals in it, thus planting a seed of compassion in me, which has lead me to become vegan.

Yea I don't disagree with the video post (which is why I gave up on TV) but I think you can watch whatever you can grab the good out of. We all have our limits.

Cool post! Growing up I watched MacGyver, best show ever! And I met him too!
I also watched and liked Highway to Heaven, Quantum Leap, The Jetsons, Captain Planet, Ronin Warriors, Sailor Moon, Rockford Files, Matlock, The Waltons, Little House, Knight Rider, and many more.
The devotion of thought to an honest achievement makes the achievement possible.

Galaxy High was my favorite cartoon as a kid but I did love captain planet as well. We always used to make fun of what a wimpy super power heart was. Thinking about it, it would be a really amazing power actually. I liked a lot of those other shows mentioned as well. Thundercats, Dungeons and Dragons, gummy bears, ren and stimpy, and animaniacs were a bunch of my other favorites.

Childhood Blast from the Past

#27 Postby VeganDougie » Mon Jun 11, 2012 2:58 pm

Can't believe nobody has mentioned doctor who, Tom Baker was my Doctor I grew up with ( yes I am in my 40's).

However one you may not of heard of was the wombles - the first Eco kids program about strange animals living on Wimbledon common and recycling the rubbish left their by us humans.

A bit of trivia: the British actor Bernard cribbens did all the voices for the puppets and also had a recurring role in the new doctor who as Donna Nobles grandad.

Good point. Although, that music always gave me the heebie-jeebies.
