Boy Meets World...I was 10....I loved that show...

I THINK I have heard of that show. But it does make me think of another classic I left out. "The Wonder Years". This is yet another show that aired long after my childhood was over, but I always did love watching it. Fred Savage was wonderful in it.  :)

Edit: Chris, it is so cute how you are listing all those movies you haven't seen. Be sure to let me/us know how you liked "As Good As It Gets"  ;)

I'm sorry I didn't list those! I was running out of options though. Thanks for listing and telling us about all these shows you love so much!  :)

I am sure many others love them too!

I just thought of another one I loved as a child! The Brady Bunch!

Not only did I have a huge crush on Tony Dow (who played Wally in Leave It To Beaver), I also had a big crush on Greg (Barry Williams) and Peter (Christopher Knight) when I was growing up. :D

Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfection

Haha - I STILL love that show ... ABC Family runs reruns of it all the time : )

I feel young.  My other favorites growing up were "The Wonder Year's", "Punky Brewster", "Silver Spoons" and most definitely "Growing Pains"

From the polling list I picked:  "Little House on the Prarie (STILL love that - FOX plays it every day), "Flipper" (saw reruns only) and "Lassie" (also reruns).

Wow, look at all the ones I forgot. I loved Boy Meets World too, and still watch it sometimes. (Yay for ABC Family!) Amber, I also watched Growing Pains, and Punky Brewster when I was REALLY little.

i used to watch  the munsters  the adams family   i love lucy all the time when i was younger all in reruns though

i  always loved to watch shows like the golden girls also cause i was more   comfortable around older  people than my   age group
Sometimes it all still feels like a mass of dots               
but
more and more these days
I feel like we're all connected
and it's beautiful   
and funny
and good.
