I grew up in the 90's, but if I had to choose a show on that list it would be Mr. Rogers. I loved that show as a kid.

Though I must add that 90's Nickelodeon kicked some major ass.

This is the first thread in a long time that has made me feel young. :2razz:

I rocked out to TMNT, Ducktales, and David the Gnome.

TMNT? EDIT: I just figured it out! I should've put that on the list.
Ducktales....whoooo oooh! (Loved that one too.)
I don't remember David the Gnome.

Another collection of some all-time greats:


Chip&Dale4eva

Also Ghostbusters - Serious flashbacks to being a little kid in department stores with my parents. I would run around and pretend those little round metal things on the ground that covered up electric sockets were actually those traps that you threw out there to catch ghosts. good times.

Thundercats was my favorite show growing up in the 80s, although I hated the time it came on because I could only watch half of it and then I had to go to school. My other favorites were GI Joe, Silver Hawks,TigerSharks(thundercats clone), Transformers, He-Man,C.O.P.S., and Go-Bots(generic transformers).

The TMNT NES game was extremely difficult. I do not have fond memories of that game.

ThunderCats was my favorite when I was real little.
I was Lion-O for Halloween.

David the Gnome was ghey.
I would fall almost fall asleep with that on.

That's the purpose of kid shows, to make you fall asleep.
But sometimes nostalgia makes you think that awful shows were good shows, so who cares.
