Classic Kids TV Shows: An Introduction…
It would be fair to say that I am a pretty nostalgic person at the best of times; some people might go as far to say that I am a bit too stuck in the past! You may even have noticed if you follow this blog that I tend to reminisce about books I read when I was younger, films that I loved, toys that I can remember playing with and so on. I tend to look back on things I enjoyed in the past with rose-tinted glasses.
One topic that comes up a lot among my friends and work colleagues, is that of television shows we used to watch when we were kids. I cannot begin to explain how much time I have spent discussing all of my favourite shows that I used to watch when I was a child.
The discussion came up again the other day and I got a blast of inspiration: I could do a feature on my blog discussing favourite shows of bygone years! I will probably age myself a bit here, but I grew up in the 80s and I can remember a lot of amazing shows that I used to tune into without fail.
Not all of these were made in the 80s. There were a lot of reruns of older shows that were made in the 60s and 70s which I can remember loving as well. I see a lot of the programs that are on for children nowadays and this may be the nostalgia talking, but I invariably think to myself “kids shows used to be so much better in my day” (told you I was getting on a bit lol).
I think it would be very sad to forget some of these classic programs. I have often found myself on YouTube looking up my old favourites (the theme songs for some of them are just amazing) and I thought it could be really fun sharing them with you all (either that or I will depress myself royally)!!
