I loved watching television growing up. Really, which kid growing up through the 90s and early 2000s didn't? The times have changed, and so has the television aimed at kids, and not for the better. I'm tired of forcing my kids to watch "educational" shows with little-to-no creativity all of the time. True, it is important to get some information packed in there, but whatever happened to watching shows purely for their entertainment value?
Here are 12 shows from the 90s and early 2000s that were a joy to watch growing up, but you have likely forgotten all about them as the years have passed by.
1. Caitlin's Way: 2000-2002
Caitlin was a rebel teenager that moved from inner-city Philadelphia to the rural parts of Montana. Culture shock aside, everyone kind of wanted to be like her.
2. Radio Free Roscoe: 2003-2005
These four friends created their own "uncensored" radio show in order to challenge the status quo. It was a huge hit with their high school classmates, but it drove the administration completely bonkers. It also inspired a generation of radio personalities.
3. The Weekenders: 2000-2004
Four seventh graders who were all best friends would showcase their lives from the time they got out of school on Friday, until they would have to head back to class on Monday. It made waiting for the weekend harder for some kids.
4. Freakazoid: 1995-1997
Dexter Douglas was a 16-year-old kid from Washington DC that ended up being transformed into a superhero. It was kind of wild and wacky, but it was a lot of fun to watch.
5. Sabrina: The Animated Series: 1999-2000
A prequel cartoon adaptation to Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Her powers were not what they would become later on, but it was still kind of fun to watch.
6. Eerie, Indiana: 1991-1992
This was a great show that we were all disappointed didn't last longer. Marshall moves into a new town, Eerie, Indiana, which is suitably named as he starts finding himself in some very strange situations dealing with a variety of urban legends.
