Awwww, I loved Are You Afraid of the Dark
!!!! I used to watch that show religiously. *sigh* Oh the memories... First I watched it when they had Snick, then they started playing one or two episodes after school. I'd watch the new ones, reruns, reruns I'd seen three times already, anything! Loved that show.
I was about to start this thread too, Sarah, thanks for saving me the trouble!
I also used to watch Round House
(not *that* great, but I loved it at the time). Fifteen
(liked it a lot at the time, though I don't miss it at all right now). Rocko's Modern Life
, of course -- oh, I miss that show so much.
I know what you mean, Sarah, they play it on that UPick thing, but it doesn't help much because it's not on a schedule so I have to be in the mood to sit through other potentially bad cartoons before getting around to the good stuff.Ren and Stimpy. Salute Your Shorts. Hey Dude.
And of course the uber-classic You Can't Do That on Television
was good, as mentioned, before they replaced everyone. (They even had a fat chick!!! Why can't "adult" shows be this open-minded??!!!) Kenan and Kel!!
There also used to be this show called Kablam!
which I was so obsessed with. When it wasn't on, I'd spend the entire week just thinking about it and getting excited for the next episode. Most of the stuff on this show was stop-motion animation of various types. Oh, Kablam had this sketch called Prometheus and Bob that was so hilarious!! I think it involved some uber-intelligent alien from outer space who kept trying to teach the caveman new technology and other stuff, but it always ended in hilarious disaster. And another sketch called Action League Now which was probably my f***ing favourite of all! It was stop-motion animation using old action figures, one of which was called The Flesh -- "he's super-strong...and super-naked" or whatever his tagline was.
Also Melt Man and Stinky Diver. *sigh* That show was a classic. Unfortunately, I seem to be the only one who thinks so, because the show didn't seem to last that long. Double Dare. Finders Keepers! Wild and Crazy Kids
-- which was co-hosted by Omar Gooding, Cuba Gooding Jr's little bro. All those lovely old Nickelodeon game shows. Ha, I used to watch Nickelodeon all the damn time, obviously, LOL.
Oh, and how can I forget my almost-namesake Clarissa Explains It All
!! The show that caused everyone at my school to intentionally give me the misnomer Clarissa. And maybe that's part of why everyone else decides to add that L in my name as well.
Heheh. The Ferg.
