Aloha Friday: Shows From Years Past
Not too long ago, I was given the opportunity to review Transformers Prime: Darkness Rising for Kailani over at An Island Life. (There’s a giveaway for that too, so head on over and enter.) My boys loved it as did I. For me, it brought back a lot of memories of shows I loved growing up. I was a huge Transformers fan and always would beg my parents for a new Transformer to add to my collection. The only rival to Transformers was He-Man. I still have some of my old Transformers packed away somewhere.
Besides Transformers, the boys have been re-discovering some gems from the past. They’ve watched Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends on Roku via Netflix. They don’t seem to get how cheesy it is and instead simply enjoy the superhero stories. They’ve also watched Batman: The Animated Series and The Super Mario Bros Super Show.
It seems that some shows (or show concepts in the case of Transformers) don’t really age all that badly and kids don’t always need a flashy new show to be entertained. Sometimes, an older show will entertain them just as much.
My Aloha Friday question for today is: Do you have a show that you grew up with that your kids enjoy watching?
