Top Ten Children's Programmes
Advantages: shows that I used to love
Disadvantages: some of them don't have re-runs
Here is a list of my top 10 children's shows most of which are from my childhood. Although I really don't think 10 cuts it because there are so many children shows that I love or loved as a child.
10. Wizards of Waverley Place (2007-2012)
I can't help but like this show I have no idea why but it's kind of my guilty pleasure. The show is about a family of wizards living in Waverley place in Manhattan, New York. The three kids Alex, Justin and Max are all training to become the family wizard. Selena Gomez who plays Alex would probably be my favourite character because I think she is funny always getting into mischief.
9. 100 Deeds for Eddie McDowd (1999 - 2002)
I really only watched the first series of this and thought it was quite good. The show was about a school bully that was turned into a dog and had to do 100 good deeds to get himself back to human form. It wasn't something I would run to watch but it did entertain me when it came on.
8. The Amanda Show (1999-2002)
This show was a comedy sketch that used to come on Nickelodeon and when I used to watch it found it extremely funny. I always used to get excited when this came on because it was a guaranteed laugh. I watch an episode of it a few months back and it was just a good as I remembered and also brought back so many memories.
7. Cow & Chicken (1997-1999)
I remember when I was younger and used to try and stay up 'late' to watch this show because I thought it was really good. After watching it recently I had to laugh at how dumb the show is. Two humans that don't show their heads that have kids who are a Cow and a Chicken is just madness right. I do have some memories of watching this show that's why it made my list.
6. Dexter's Lab (1996-2003)
I absolutely loved this show and couldn't get enough of it when it came on. The show is about Dexter who is a boy genius that has to deal with his annoying sister while trying to come up with great experiments. Dee Dee who was his sister was so funny I just loved her but did feel a little sorry for Dexter. Would hate to have such an annoying little sister like he did.
5. Two of a Kind (1998-1999)
A young Mary-Kate and Ashley starred in a Television series about two sisters growing up and day to day life. I loved this show mainly because I was a huge fan of Mary-Kate and Ashley. The series had lots of laughs and my favourite episode would probably be the one where they thought there babysitter was a killer. I still catch re-runs of this series every now and then and it still entertains me.
4. Doug (1991-1999)
What's not to love about a show with a boy and his dog. This show was a comedy show that dealt with loads of different topics such as school and life situations in general. The show was easy to follow and was good because it had loads of childish situations that I could relate to. This show is what made me have a journal when I was a kid just because Doug had one lol.
3. Hey Arnold (1996-2004)
The is no way I could do a top 10 and not include this because I watched this every single day after school as a kid. The show was about a bunch of school kids and their daily life. Arnold was the main character who lived with his grand parents. The relationship between Helga and Arnold is one of the main topics of the show. Helga is quite mean to Arnold and calls him football head but deep down loves him. The show was funny and brought alot of laugh just wish they did re-runs because I would love to catch a few episodes again.
2. Recess (1997-2001)
Everyone loves playtime so having a show about it was just the perfect thing to do. The show was mainly about what happens at playtime and rules of the playground. My favourite character was Spinelli because she was just a hardcore girl. The gang that the show focuses on has a character for everyone so weather you like the cool kid, the nerd or the sporty kid there is someone for everyone and represent each type of stereotype when it comes to school. Me and my sisters all had different favourites and we used to argue all the time over who is the best.
1. Are you afraid of the dark (1991- 2000)
This just had to be number one because this is the only place I used to get my horror thrills from sinc my mum never used to let me watch real horror. I loved this show because every show was different and it was cool. I liked that it was a bunch of kids out at night telling each other ghosts stories it's just cool because that's what I used to do at sleepovers. The very first episode The Tale of the Phantom Cab is an episode that I will always remember because it was the first one I ever watched. They had loads of two part episodes and had such a wide range of ghosts stories that it was hard to not love.
There are so many thing that I have missed that I would probably need a list of 100 to fit everything. Just to name a few extras there was:
As Told by Ginger
Rockos Modern Life
Power puff Girls
Clarrissa knows it all
Boy meets world
Drake and Josh
An so many more I could go on forever lol.
Summary: so many children's shows I love
