Has this been done? I've not noticed in any of the lists.

Okay so what shows do you remember liking as a child? My list will be from the 80's from but some of you will have a different decade.

There are the long time runners that we've all grown up knowing like Tom and Jerry and Scooby Doo.
Other toons I used to watch:

Dungeons and Dragons
He-Man
Thunder Cats
Starfleet
Terror Hawkes
Does anyone remember the Mysterious Cities of Gold?
I watched Ulysses for a while too.

I also caught some 60's shows but I'm done now :)

Edit: Okay my brain must not have had enough coffee this morning when I did this list, I missed:
Flintstones
Popeye
The Racoons
Inspector Gadget

I remember that one!
Well...I remember the theme from that one. Couldn't tell you the plot of an episode if I tried, but I do remember the song.

Let's see, what shows do I remember from my childhood...
(I'm using jr high as my cut off)

I've always liked animated action-adventure and science fiction series. I would watch.

Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers
Darkwing Duck
Ducktales
Original Heman (just caught a few episodes)
James Bond Junior
Real Ghostbusters
Superfriends
Talespin
1987-1996 TMNT

Would've watched much more if I'd lived in the USA instead of Sweden, making it easier to watch all those series. In Sweden, you needed cable TV or parabolic antenna to watch most of those series.

Thankfully, the Internet exists and now I can watch animated action-adventure and enjoy many of them (don't care for things like Disney anymore).

Bosco
Batman 1960s tv series

About half the PBS program.

Cyberchase

So that included

And when we WERE able to watch cable, such as if we were on vacation.
Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy
Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends
(those were pretty much the two that I liked, I can't recall much for the others)

I was a 90s kids so I watched most 90s shows.



With the exception of 90's Nick shows, I've seen virtually everything.

You missed out, 90s Nick was its golden age.

MsMarvelDuckie
08-26-2017, 05:08 PM
I'd say that was the early days, back in the 80's when it was first introduced. So many great shows on then. It was the FIRST network AIMED specifically at kids. Who could forget the early days of "You Can't Do That..." or "Double Dare"? By the 90's, it had already spawned both Nick Jr. for the pre-school crowd, and Nick At Night for the older nostalgic adults(shows like Mister Ed, Lassie, and the like), so had drifted a bit from the original idea.

There are so many to mention, and a lot of what's already been said.

To add some not yet mentioned... of course Fraggle Rock! Also things like, in no particular order, The Wuzzles, Zoobilee Zoo, Shirt Tales, Gummi Bears, Dave Coulier's Nick show Out of Control, and what oldies here remember Pinwheel?

MsMarvelDuckie
08-26-2017, 05:37 PM
YES! To all of those. Nick was one of my "best friends" growing up, as it was launched when I was still young enough to appreciate all those shows aimed at younger viewers, but old enough to also start getting into the ones for older kids, too. Pinwheel was never a favorite of mine, but I still remember the theme song, LOL!

Let's see...I'll most likely be leaving out some I'm sure but these are the ones that first spring to mind:

Disney Afternoon Shows were gold to me. My family had a limited amount of screen time we could watch on weekdays but since I would do my homework while watching TV (and still pull good grades) my mom would allow me domination over the television for the whole block. So I would watch:
Ducktales, Chip n dale Rescue Rangers, Gummi Bears, Talespin, Darkwing Duck, Goof Troop, Bonkers, Gargoyles, Mighty Ducks, Quack Pack, Little Mermaid, Timon and Pumbaa, and Aladdin. And honestly, with a few exceptions, most of these I still enjoy.

Watched TMNT naturally and Fraggle Rock, Rainbow Brite, My Little Pony, Thundercats, Beetlejuice, Captain Planet, Secret Life of Alex Mack, Under the Umbrella Tree, Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Conan and the Young Warriors, Reboot, Muppet Babies, Garfield and Friends, Scooby doo, Inspector Gadget...

I got into anime when I was late in high school but mainly Dragonball Z, Sailor Moon and Inuyasha. Dabbled in Death Note in college.

Non-cartoon shows would be most of the TGIF schedule from around 1992-1995. Also watched a lot of Matlock in the 90's. Although, I don't think at around ten years old I was the target audience.

Some of the non toon shows I watched were not aimed at children either but that's because we didn't have the amount of channels and shows for children that we have now. There were scheduled times for kids shows and around that, everything else. I was watching re-runs of Star Trek when I was little and then some soaps during childhood. I also watched T.J Hooker, knight Rider and The A-Team. I remember A-Team toys though so they must have had children in mind.

Oh yeah I forgot about the limited channels and scheduling. Good point. We had a TV Antenna with poor reception, maybe three channels at best. Got a satellite dish eventually though. I must have watched Matlock during breaks from school seeing how it was a mid-day time slot iirc. Kids nowadays don't know how good they have it with all the access to shows for them. Yeah when we got a dish I watched some Knight Rider, Highlander, and Renegade. I was older though, probably thirteen. Knight Rider though was rebroadcast of course.

We had just 3-4 channels at that time as well, though I still thought the shows on them were enough for me. The Den (Irish children's tv strand) aired most popular shows from around the world. I remember watching some adult shows such as soaps, Murder She Wrote and Star Trek: The Next Generation along with others I can't remember anything about.

Yeah the shows were enough for me too. But never got much into Soaps or Murder She Wrote. But Star Trek was great and so was Star Trek:TNG. But lots of the times I slightly preferred the original over TNG because it seemed to have more missions with the crew venturing off the ship.

I remember refusing to watch TNG when it came out, out of stubbornness because I liked the original characters....but I did eventually come to like it.
