My Childhood Favourites!

by yesilsac | created - 27 Aug 2014 | updated - 18 Oct 2016 | Public

Below you'll find a list of the BEST OF THE BEST kid's shows of all all time, arranged not according to which ones I love most (I could NEVER choose :P), but by the order I watched them. So you'll see in order, what most 21st century kids watched while they were growing up. As a 2000s child (1999) I grew up with tons of different kinds of movies and TV series made by Disney, Nickolodeon, esc. The ones that today's kids watch, are not even close to their effective, creative and enigmatic magical world! It always warms my heart to think about my own childhood favorites. THEY ALL MEAN THE WORLDS TO ME! It's time for a little nostalgia now!
