You Quantum Leap fans need to go get the previous seasons of Chuck. Bakula guest stars for a long run of it, and there are more than a few Quantum Leap in-jokes.

I loved Rugrats. The theme song is actually my calling ringtone on my cell phone haha. I also really liked GUTS, Fraggle Rock, Gumby, Ren n Stimpy, Two Stupid Dogs, Dexter's Laboratory, Power Puff Girls, pretty much anything that was on Nickelodeon or Cartoon Network in the early 90's. lol.

Wow.. to everyone that liked Captain Planet (I liked it too) - don't you kind of feel bad looking back for the poor kid stuck with "heart".

I honestly didn't wantch much TV, my mom was totally against it, but I loved fred penner and raffi - mr. dressup freaked me out mostly..

[deleted account]

Ah Sam....I have Quantum Leap on DVD too. And I love MacGyver but not so much now since I found out he's the same age as my Dad LOL.

AND a Fraggle Rock movie!? Part of me thinks "AWESOME" but the other part is afraid it will be terrible. Why can't they leave things alone? I mean, why? WHY? did they remake the Karate Kid! That's sacrilege as far as I'm concerned!

OMG!!!! You guys liked Fraggle Rock, too??? My son likes the books (found them at a secondhand store and HAD to get them for him). And I tuned to it the other day. I had no idea it still came on TV!!!



Gumby, Gilligan's Island, A-Team, Saved by the Bell, Charles in Charge, Facts of Life, Bosom Buddies, X-Files, Unsolved Mysteries, Rescue 911 (yep.. I USED to love that show lol), Daria, Star Trek (the old ones and Next Generation-- My dad was KIND OF a Trekkie), Macgyver (thanks to my brother), Wishbone, Spell Binder, Darkwing Duck, Growing Pains, Three's Company, Full House (you can gag, it's Ok), Cosby Show, Family Matters, Good Times, Home Improvement, FRESH PRINCE (of Bel-Air)!!!

I liked the x-files and unsolved mysteries. lol.



Roseanne and grace under fire, murphy brown, other things my parents watched.



I can't think of any cartoons I liked as a kid. OH. the simpsons. and beavis and butthead.



No kid shows, hated them.



My first crush was david duchovny.



I liked the cartoons that came out when I was older. rocko, real monsters, etc. I didn't have cable when I was little though, and it took my a while to pay attention to nickelodeon.

[deleted account]

I think an easier question would be what didn't I like. I love TV. But sadly with most shows you can't go back. Many a time I've excitedly sat down to watch a show I used to LOVE and it has been TERRIBLE!
We have a couple of shows on DVD. I have Fraggle Rock and my husband has Transformers and Astroboy. Oh and I have a lot of Spongebob. LOL
