I have a blurry memory of that. A costumed elephant hanging around two woman and a man and they played a song at the end and had a friend with a banjo. I was like 3-4 when this aired on Nick Jr. I had no clue what their names were. The hand motion at the beginning makes it look like they trying to get blood circulation back in it affter laying on it.

I will be back to post mine but it will mainly be stuff I will always think well of opposed to just anything I watched as a kid.

Cool

I only had to look at the thread creator to know the first post would be a page long list of pretty much every show from a specific time period.

I've never watched much TV outside of select shows. For as long as I can remember I've always preferred playing games on my free time. Of course I loved Ninja Turtles, really like Reboot and I loved 90's Spider-Man, but outside of that not much sticks anymore. Most of the stuff I still sorta care about is stuff I started watching in high school.

I grew up with a lot of crap that I ended up forgetting. I'll never forget Aqua Teen Hunger Force, though.

Shows I watched as a kid and still like to this day would be: Ninja Turtles(1987)- my all-time favorite,Pok'emon,Superfriends,Flintstones, Jetsons, The New Scooby Doo Movies, Pup Named Scooby Doo,Batman:The Animated Series,Full House, The Andy Griffith Show,Gilligan's Island, Brady Bunch. In my teen years I loved Justice League(needed Hawkgirl traded for Aquaman ), and Ninja Turtles (2003). I watched Spider-Man:The Animated Series sporatically during my upper elementary years and later in my high school years.

While I don't care for it anymore I was a big Power Rangers fan but its was always #2 to Ninja Turtles. While the original six are nostalgic awesomness I don't care beyond that.
