Rubix Cubes and Flourescent Tube Socks.

After reading this post by CakeWrecks, I decided to Google all the old tv shows I used to love as a child of the 80's. Here's my list. What are some of your faves?

Alf. This alien was so funny!
Fraggle Rock. Loved those things! And the Doozers...adorable!!
My Little Ponies. There's a funny story about me as a 5 year old in '87 and My Little Ponies. My mom was expecting my baby sister, but back in the day we didn't know if she was having a boy or a girl. My mom told me that if the baby was a girl, her name would be Megan. I got all excited, and told her that I really liked that name because the girl on My Little Ponies was named Megan. I then proceeded to tell my mom that if the baby was a boy, she needed to name him Sundance, because that was the name of Megan's horse on the show. Well, 22 years later and I still get picked on for this. Fortunately, a girl was born, and yes, her name is Megan.
Punky Brewster. Who didn't love her rad clothes?!
Rainbow Brite. I totally had the Rainbow Brite doll with the iridescent dress, and even the pretty white pony!!
Small Wonder. Ok seriously...what kid in the 80's (or today for that matter) didn't want a sibling that they could turn off?!
Snorks. In my opinion, WAY cooler than the smurfs. Way.
Square One. One word: Mathman.
Today's Special. In hindsight, it's totally creepy. But back then I loved the living mannequin and talking mouse!
Wuzzles. Technicolor animal hybrids...awe-SOME!!
Zoobilee Zoo. Lots of adults in leotards and tights acting like jungle animals. Fun for everyone!
