Videos: Another look at my childhood

They say, if you see any one thing enough times it becomes completely ingrained. The younger you are, the more it is permanently bonded to the brain.

These are the intros to a lot of the programming I watched as a kid. How many do you remember?

No.. the list is only the tip of the avalanche.. But I'd love to hear what I missed.

Timing is everything.

"Hey kids! What time is it?" "IT'S HOWDY DOODY TIME!"

"A fiery horse with the speed of light, a cloud of dust, and a hearty Hi-Yo Silver! The Lone Ranger rides again!"

"Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird It's a plane! "It's...SUPERMAN!"

You will be happy to know..

My kids own a copy of Battle of the Planets on DVD. They've watched some of the old Hulk movies. My kid is in love with Spiderman and Superman (and likes to watch everything from the early 90's cartoons.. to the stuff of today.) They've watched the new Zoom on tv and enjoyed it...

And Sesame Street was a staple for them when they were younger.

Also, did you hear that Sesame street is getting a new puppet! It's pretty cool.

Oh yes.. and the kids have taken to watching the "Classic" Dr Who episodes and various movies that are out... and I have a feeling we are going to have to search for the entire thing from start to finish for them at some point. Yes, my kids are geeks.
