Me and my grandmother never had cable until I was about 12 or so. I only got to watch cable when I was over my other grandparents'. When I was there however I pretty much only watched Cartoon Network.

How about some love for PBS though? Wishbone, Carmen Sandiego, Kratts' Creatures - it had quality entertainment back in the day.

Most I don't know, I jumped around a lot. As well as Fox.

What I enjoyed most? Cartoon Network. Why? Adult Swim baby. :cool:

I always wanted a cool pen necklace like they all had when I was little.

I think overall I've watched more Disney channel and Cartoon Network than any other channel in existence. I used to love the old 80's cartoons like Thundercats, Silverhawks, the Smurfs, etc., and Boy Meets World was my after school ritual.

Cartoon Network was great when it used to show all the cool Looney Toons stuff etc

Oh and Dexter's Lab and Jonny Bravo!

I liked Nickelodeon better. Nickelodeon had All That, Rocko, The Amanda Show, Kenan and Kel, Figure it Out, Legends of the Hidden Temple, Kablam and so many more awesome shows that I would watch today if they were on.

I feel lucky that the downfall of quality of Nick coincided with me growing into adulthood. It was easy to move on.

Disney was good too. Even Stevens comes to mind.

I didn't like CN so much... The best shows they had were the old Hanna Barbera and Loony Tunes show.

Children's BBC (later disgustingly turned into CBBC) reporting in. My family was too poor to afford satellite and cable was unheard of so it was boring old terrestrial TV for me.

They were great. :}

I especially loved that Crystal Maze-esque Jungle themed thing that was on. The kids were so dumb. I totally would have won everything.

Am I the only one who constantly watched Animal Planet and National Geographic?

Hanna Barbera

Who can deny the awesome of BIIIIIIIIRD MAAAAAN! and Space Ghost though?

Yes, I liked them even before their Talk Show Host and Lawyer days. :p

We do not talk about Stephanie Beard, especially her role as Rini/Chibi-Moon. :p

I was never really into children's programmes to begin with, even when I was a child.

So I guess none of the above :p

Not one mention of the WB? You criminals don't deserve to watch Animaniacs.

Holy trout, Kratt's Kreatures, Ghost Writer, Carmen Sandiego - those are some smurfing shows I haven't heard of in a long time. I was just talking to my sister the other day about Wishbone! childhood feeeeeels

Cartoon Network is superior but I remember watching Nickelodeon shows, too. Johnny Bravo, Angry Beavers, All That, Space Ghost, all those old Hanna Barbera cartoons. Thank god for television growing up.

let's discuss Chucklevision.

Chucklevision is in a league of its own for television. It hit the right balance of creepy and fun. xP

What the smurf is creepy about two mustachioed men with mullets and dodgy jumpers? :colbert:

Aren't you Scottish? Isn't that how every male in Scotland looks?
