So it turns out I watched a lot of TV when I was younger

My friend Liz was awesome enough to introduce me to this video “clip”.  It’s more like a power hour of all the shows that were played as I grew up.  It’s been around since 2006 so I’m sure most have seen this, but who doesn’t love a bit of nostalgia?

My favorites?

  1. David the Gnome
  2. Doogie Howser MD
  3. Darkwing Duck (When I was 6 I walked around the house saying “Farkwing F*ck” until my mom made me stop.  I had no idea it was a bad word.  Oops.)
  4. Family Matters (and all of TGIF for that matter)
  5. Hey Dude
  6. Heathcliff
  7. The Muppet Show
  8. Inspector Gadget
  9. The Adventures of Pete and Pete (Ok, I never watched it, but I loved the intro song)
  10. Smurfs
  11. Rugrats
  12. Perfect Strangers
  13. Reading Rainbow
  14. Adventures with Gummy Bears
  15. Clarissa Explains it All (My roommates and I looked up Sam…not as dreamy as the 8 year olds us remember)
  16. Beetlejuice
  17. Double Dare (I wanted that Huffy bike like nobody’s business)
  18. Planet Earth
  19. Wonder Years (I actually cried when this show ended)
  20. Legends of the Hidden Temple (aka. “Where Lost got their inspiration for the creepy tomb”–Seth)
  21. My Little Pony
  22. Mork and Mindy
  23. Saved by the Bell (duh)
  24. Dinosaurs
  25. Bill Nye the Science Guy
  26. Animaniacs/Pinky and the Brain (I bought this for my brother for Christmas last year.  It’s not nearly as funny as it is when you’re 10)
  27. Alf
  28. Fraggle Rock
  29. Salute Your Shorts (best intro song EVER.  “Now get it right or pay the price!”)
  30. Tale Spin
  31. Fresh Prince
  32. Chip and Dale: Rescue Rangers
  33. Duck Tales
  34. Muppet Babies
  35. Lambchop’s Singalong (the worst outro song EVER

Shows not listed (and absolutely should be since these are the BEST):

  1. Square One/Mathnet
  2. Ghostwriter
  3. Where in the World is Carmen San Diego?
  4. Doug
  5. Wishbone
  6. Arthur
  7. Step by Step

Um, yeah.  So I think I just recounted all the shows ever made.  Seriously, how in the world did I watch this much tv?  Did I miss any?  Is that possible?

You Can’t Dance Better Than This Kid

I’m not sure what’s funnier: the fact that 5 year olds are dancing to Flo Rida or that the boy hits his butt when they lyric “gives her booty a smack” comes on. It’s a toss-up.

Thanks for the heads-up Steph!

Frank Lambert and a Crab

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on April 8, 2009 by melsanie

Remember Frank Lambert? The dad from Step by Step? (side note: that show supposedly took place a half hour from my home town and it should be made known that my high school’s sports teams beat them on the regular–except in football because they raise GIANTS out there.) Well, Frank (aka Patrick Duffy) has nominated himself to embody the older generations cluelessness about technology. He doesn’t know about Facebook so who should teach him? No, not his kid. No, not Google. Wait, did you say a talking puppet crab?? DING DING DING. I’m as serious as a monkey in space. To make it even better? The crab looks like he just spent the night drinking tequila and then got beat up by a degenerate lobster or some other crustacean. (true or false: I had to spell check crustacean. That word is mad tricky) Now, if we can get a guest appearance from JD or Cody, I’ll love these even more.
