TV Shows from your Childhood

The other day, while I listened to something my kids were watching on TV, I couldn’t help but think about all the awesome TV shows I had growing up that I absolutely loved and how I wish they were on TV now for my kids to watch. Every once and awhile they are able to catch a show when they are at my moms house that I remember watching growing up. Bella came home once telling me that she knew how to make her own pickles because she saw it on an “old fashion” TV show. The show she watched was the Andy Griffith Show! The shows I miss are:

*Punky Brewster
*Small Wonder
*That show with Belki lol I can’t remember what it was
*Step by Step
*Out of this World
*Silver Spoons
*Beverly Hills 90210

My kids love watching TV shows that I grew up with. Especially Full Housetv shows and Boy Meets Worldtv shows. Those two hit TV shows are constantly on in my house. In fact, they are watching Boy Meets World right now!

We have some great shows on TV right now, but nothing compares to what we had during the 80’s and 90’s! All of the TGIF shows (remember that?!?) had good, wholesome family values and they taught a lesson in each show. Bella pointed that out in both Full House and Boy Meets World right away. While they may be cheesy, they are still things that stick with you. For instance, I never once took Caffeine pills in high school or college no matter how tired I got or how much work I had because I remember the episode of Saved By the Bell with Jesse and what happened to her.

Best New TV Shows

  • Girl Meets World
  • The Blacklist
  • Shades of Blue
  • America’s Got Talent (not new, but a great family show)
  • American Idol (also not new, but another great family show)
