I like to watch TV with my Grandson (he lives with me)

Spongebob for sure, I think I've seen em all. Also on Nick, Drake and Josh and I Carly-both fun shows that I never have to worry about. Messages are always positive, no double meanings or innuendo.

Sadly, it seems prime time is slowly eroding, and many of the shows that are broadcast during "family hours" (7-9 pm) are becoming questionable. Thankfully, at 7 years old much of it is still over his head, but he's beginning to ask questions!!!

Sesame Street was a fave. We would tape it so they could watch it again later. Shining Time Station and Reading Rainbow was another. I have to say though that my kids when they watched TV would prefer videos over broadcast. We had all the Disney movies and other family stuff like Back to the Future and Indiana Jones. My youngest son was into Indy so much! When he was 4, he got a real Indy hat wore it everywhere! He also was big into Little Mermaid. We watched those 2 over and over and over. He still enjoys Indy and even bought a new hat a couple of years ago. He keeps this one nice and wears it when he wants to look "cool". He's 19 now and I must say the hat does look good on him!
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

When Nancy was three, we took her to see Cinderella, and a few weeks later Indiana Jones (the first one). She liked Cinderalla okay. When we left the theater after Indiana Jones, she cried for three blocks--"I want to see it again! Can we please see it again?!" She always prefered real action movies over cartoons (but she did like cartoons, especially Little Mermaid and Aladdin).

My daughter, Kari, loved "Care Bears" and in fact her nickname was "CareBear" ......today my 5 year old granddaughter likes Hannah Montana.....I have to admit outside of the annoying laugh track and her father trying to mug for the cameras I like the show, too.......we grew up with Captain Kangaroo and old time Merry Melodies cartoons..........
The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.
