What Do/Did You Watch With Your Kids?

SizzlininIN's thread about our favorite TV shows as a child got me to thinking. So here is kind of a spin-off (no pun intended, lol) of her thread.

What is/was your favorite show to watch with your kids? Not your kids' favorites, but the ones you loved watching with them but would probably not have watched on your own (or would not admit it! lol).

I loved watching Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood and Sesame Street with my daughter Nancy. When she was older I watched Saved By the Bell with her. When my step-daughter Anna was younger, I watched Dora the Explorer, Rugrats, and Spongebob Squarepants with her.

I have to admit that I have been known to watch Saved By the Bell, Spongebob, and Rugrats by myself now and then!

when my kids were little, they didn't watch much tv. always outside playing. kids don't do that so much anymore.

when they did watch, i made sure of what they were watching and went on with my own activity. same with grandkids when they were little.

to much t.v. today, that's a lot of why kids are in such bad shape and over weight. i really think parents should limit the time they spend.

Not with my kids, but with my much younger brothers and sisters - spongebob!

"...Now that we're men, we have facial hair!
Now that we're men, we change our underwear!.."

That tune (and those words) made me crack up.

And I used to play Spyro on the playstation with them. That was fun too

Sesame Street
Shining Time Station
When they were little

Sponge bob and the Simpson's was their favorite for a long time.

My oldest, I would catch him in the a.m. like 3 am, watching Freddy Krueger!! and he was like 6 or 7 years! He absolutely loved Freddy!! He was my scary movie kid. No matter how much I said no and kept away from him, he would find ways to watch. He never had a nightmare either
The youngest, NO WAY. He still doesn't like the scary stuff

When my kids were young, we always watched Sesame Street and Mr. Rogers together. Those shows success was a direct result of repeating the same show three times a day. Genius.

We watch Weeds together, now...

Although Nancy watched Mr. Rogers and Sesame Street, she spent much of her time outdoors. She hardly ever watches TV now.

I do agree though, that a lot of kids spend way too much time indoors. I was just reading that kids today (many of them latchkey kids) are inside playing video games and watching TV so much that they are developing rickets from never going outside.

Now with the dvd collections, I have introduced my kids to Lavern and Shirley, Whats Happening, Three's Company and Taxi. Its great to see the kids laughing at the same stuff i did and I still do. I love those old shows. They dont make them like that anymore.
