{March 21, 2013}   Reminiscing

Man, remember when?




The Dinosaurs

I used to watch endless reruns of Lambchop at my Grandparents house during the day and then endless reruns of The Dinosaurs when I’d go home at night. I had the coolest Dinosaurs coloring book. I never colored in it because I was afraid if I did I would really want to color it at a later date. I don’t know what ever happened to that book. “Not the Momma!”


Barney' s Christmas Movie

And what mid didn’t fall in love with Barney?! I remember having all of the Barney movies. I had a Barney blanket for my bed, a Barney stuffed animal that sang that “I love you, you love me…” song, a 25 piece puzzle of Barney and Bee-Bop, a pop-up punching bag with Barney on it (I get the joke now, Mom and Dad, haha) and I even got to see Barney and Bee-Bop on an RV trip my parents took my brother and I on. Keep in mind, I fell obsessively in love with the original Barney- more of a plum color than a bright purple.

I’m not really sure why I’m reminiscing about my favorite childhood television shows right now. Maybe because it seems like kid’s shows have really taken a nose-dive. I wasn’t allowed to watch The Simpson’s until I was thirteen, now my six year old niece can almost quote King Of The Hill.

I’d like to see some of the old shows come back. I could totally tuck into a Wonder Years marathon right now!
