Children of 80s/Early 90s: Favourite TV Show as Kid?

I know there is a huge array of people on this board, so I thought I'd narrow this one down to just people from my era. No offense to anyone else, you just didn't have as many good TV shows as us.

That said, what's you favourite TV show when you were a kid?

I recently got my hands on the complete series of Lost Cities of Gold, and forgot how much I watched that show until I recognised heaps of parts from it.

Also got some episodes of You Can't Do That On Television a couple months ago. They're so good, but man are the jokes and skits bad.

There's also stuff like Ghostbusters, TMNT, Salute Your Shorts.. I could probably go on forever. What were your favourite TV shows as a kid?

Cartoons: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. My friends had a club where each person was a charcter from the show. I ended up being Casey Jones, the guy with the hockey mask. Pathetic. I know. Also Ducktales and old Disney and Bugs Bunny cartoo ns.

Other: A bunch of Nickelodeon stuff. "Hey Dude", "You Can't do that on Television", "Double Dare" and "Salute Your Shorts" come to mind.

I'd like to throw in the Adventures of Pete and Pete, or is that too recent? Oh yeah, and Parker Lewis Can't Lose.

I loved the randomness of those shows. Made me feel like anything was possible.

Anyone watch the Gummi Bears? That song gets stuck in my head every once in a while.

When I was real little I used to watch this show call Today's Special, or something like that. I only remember bits and pieces

When I was 4 or so, I'd get up every day at 5 am to watch the game show with the whammy, can't remember it's name though. USA network was showing Space Ghost and Smurfs a lot. Voltron was also another staple. And I'm probably the only one to own up to it, but I also loved Jem :P

This is more of a mid 90s thing but, anyone remember that STUPID tv show "Viper". it was kinda like knight rider, but with a crime fighting dodge viper that would transform and shoot missles and do all kinds of crazy stuff. i think it even flew in one episode. haha it was totally rediculous

Was it called the Lost Cities of Gold? I remember a show called the Mysterious Cities of Gold. It was an animated show on Nickelodeon with 3 kids trying to find Utopia.

If thats what your talking about, where did you find the complete series? I grew up on that show too and I'd love to get a copy.

I tried out for that when I was a wee lad. You got paid something like $20 for getting 'Watered' and $50 bucks for getting 'Slimed' and Alanis Morisette was on it, who was just known as pop-star Alanis back in the day.

The old cartoon of the Fantastic Four

Oh, I can't remember the name, but there was a cartoon with police in it. And they had special gear, like a motorcycle that turned into a helicopter maybe? And the main villain was this really fat guy (maybe a pig) who was afraid of his mother (might have just been that episode)It's really fuzzy in my head, but I know I woke up early to watch it every Saturday.

Oh, and of course, the Mario cartoons! Those totally owned me when I was little.

1. The Mysterious Cities of Gold

Best show ever, three kids and their journey from Spain, through South America to find the one of the lost Seven Cities of Gold. Fantastic series with a great soundtrack too. Brings me goosebumps when I watch my lousy RealAudio downloads. Why the hell don't they make show like this anymore?

2. G.I.Joe

Pure good versus pure, though comedic, evil. The mega-violence of this show was the best part too, they could never put this on TV again, well... save for Cartoon Network at 11:30. Plus Baroness was pretty hot too. On the plus side as well, every single thing you saw on the show could be bought, YAY CONSUMERISM!

3. Bell and Sebastian

Kid and his freakishly huge dog try to find his gypsy mother while crisscrossing Spain... I think that's what its about, I haven't seen it since I was six, but it weas great then.

4. Duck Tales

Great show about how much it rules to be rich, plus lots of great foriegn adventures... not much great foriegn adventure shows these days are there?

Ummm... that's it for now

no question, my favorite of all time was Dukes of Hazzard. I still have my Dukes of Hazzard tv dinner tray, Daisy Duke cleavage and all.

and Voltron (lions, not cars ) was bad ass! So was Tranzor Z, the one with the gaint chic robot that fired boobie missles.

I also used to get up at 5AM to catch the multiple GI Joe and Thundercats miniseries.
