I'm excited to share some of my favorite TV shows from my childhood with y'all!

Blue's Clues was my life.  I can still vaguely remember the planet song (and Pluto was included!), and I remember when Mr. Salt and Mrs. Pepper had Paprika and her little brother. Wasn't his name Cinnamon?


Out of the Box!  This show was so much fun, and I still remember the farewell song.

And does anyone else remember Little Bear?
This was a great show to nap to - not because it was boring but because the music was so soothing.

I don't have a lot of memories of watching Gullah Gullah Island.  All I know is it was a fun show, and my mom likes to mention it every now and then.  Of course, when I listened to the theme song on Tumblr, all the happy feelings came rushing back.

Did anyone else watch Little Bill?

And what about The Big Comfy Couch? 
 I actually had a Molly doll of my own! (And in reminiscing about childhood favorites back in July, I discovered that my friend Jordan watched The Big Comfy Couch, too, and had a Molly doll, as well!)

Great googly moogly! (Please tell me someone recognized that before seeing the picture below.)




And finally, this show didn't start airing until I was in 3rd or 4th grade, but it was so much fun!  I watched every season.
Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman! I remember wishing I could be on the show and actually checking out stuff for auditions, but since you'd have to live in Boston for several months, it wasn't ever possible. :(

So what shows did you watch when you were a kid?  What were your favorites?

  1. I stopped watching TV when I was five-ish and we moved from Texas to VA. Before that, I remember watching Clifford and Blue's Clues and Mr. Roger's Neighborhood for sure. I think I watched Arthur too. Oh, and DragonTales! I loved DragonTales! I don't remember anything else, though. :P

  2. Yes to Blues Clues, Little Bear, Out of the Box, Gullah Gullah Island, and the Big Comfy Couch :) I used to watch SOOO many shows! It's nuts. My list is over 100, though no way am I mentioning them all, I'm just going to do like a top 10!

  3. Dear Force, how I loved Fetch. I didn't see any of the other ones, but then again, my family isn't that big on TV.

  4. I have fond memories of you watching most of these shows - but especially Big Comfy Couch. I remember you entertaining everyone within earshot with the Bellybutton Song at the church picnic one year. And I remember you gave your Molly doll to a girl who had lost everything in a fire. 😀

  5. Big Comfy Couch, Blue's Clues, Bernstien Bears,Clifford the Big Red Dog, Mr. Roger's Neighborhood and my all time favorite; Veggie Tales.
    Despite all those, I really didn't watch that much tv when I was little.
