We've been talking a lot lately about the television we used to watch when we were young and shows we'd like to sit down and watch with the girls. All of our choices are family centered sitcoms that either show an earlier, easier way of life or shows that are reflective of how life was when we grew up. I can already imagine the questions: "why don't they just call his cell phone," "why are they lost, don't they have a gps?"

There are some cartoons from our childhoods we have already exposed the girls to and they seem to enjoy. I can't wait for them to get older and have a night a week where we hang out together and take in these old shows as a family. We also have several more we'll watch as they get older.

Are there any shows you'd like to share with your kids? What are they and why? Leave your comments below, I'm curious...


  1. My kids all enjoy Little House on the Prairie, Andy Griffith and The Waltons. You can purchase these in box sets at Sam's.

  2. The 1966 Batman series is great for kids. I can let you borrow most of the series if you want it. I'm missing a few episodes, but not many.

  3. I love andy griffith, No matter how many times I watch them it still cracks me up. You are just waiting for the day that you can break out perfect strangers.
