Television breeds Obesity?

Not in my household. I fondly recall a time in elementary when we were asked the number of television sets that we had in our household, I replied, "6, not including the one in my van."

Reflecting on my childhood is parallel to reflecting the shows that became milestone/time markers. An age of innocence to sorta say. The television in my house, was what the fireplace was in the 40s, a place to get-together, tell stories, watch stories, learn about the globe, watch TLC & Daily Planet with Dad and his BBQ Peanuts.... and of the sort.

This post is homage to all the shows (in current memory) that have stuck with me one way or another... Honorary mention goes to Tv Tropolis for keeping many of these shows alive.

Television, post-reality tv, will never be the same. The sitcom is extinct, and childhood shows are of a different genre- CGI.

  1. Astro Boy
  2. Mr. Dress Up
  3. Mr. Rogers
  4. Lamb Chops Play Along
  5. Barney and Friends (V.1.0)
  6. Sesame street
  7. The Big Comfy Couch
  8. The Muppets
  9. Care Bears
  10. Inspector Gadget
  11. The Sanrio Series: Hello Kitty, Kero Kero Keropi, and Pochacco
  12. Full House
  13. Family Matters
  14. Growing Pains
  15. Married with Children
  16. Saved By the Bell
  17. Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
  18. Hang Time
  19. Buffy the Vampire Slayer
  20. Sabrina the Teenage Witch
  21. Clueless
  22. Friends
  23. Montel Williams
  24. Everybody Loves Raymond
  25. Dawson's Creek
  26. Party of Five

..and now, my head hurts. Time to go sit on the couch with Rocky and watch TV.
