"If you could jump into a time travel machine and it takes you back to when you were a kid, what would your TV be playing then?
  Oh Lord...I'm about to embarrass myself big time I really depends on what time of my childhood you travel back to. I'm pretty sure if you hit me around 3 or 4, I would be in my Sonic the Hedgehog phase and be running around everywhere and doing weird things like hedgehog rolls and things... I guess I will tackle this question as regards to school...

In early elementary school and preschool and such, I was quite the tomboy when it came to my TV shows. I had a twin brother, and for some reason we tended to play on the more boyish side of games and shows and such. In addition to Sonic the Hedgehog, I loved Power Rangers. I hated pink, so when my brother and his friends would play, they would make me be pink and I would throw a fit because I wanted to be the red ranger. I guess that's why my FAVORITE show at the time was The Big Bad Beetleborgs...yeah, you read that right...Beetleborgs...It was basically a carbon copy of The Power Rangers, only they turned into mechanical beetles. The girl "Jo" was kickass and actually got to wear red! Steve and I would run to get home after school because it was on RIGHT as we got out so we didn't want to miss the good fight scenes. 

In late elementary school to early middle school, I fell in love with my first(and so far only) anime series.  It was my first girly girl kind of show and I loved everything about it. It was during that weird age when you're first starting to like boys and I definitely had the BIGGEST crush on Tuxedo Mask/ Darien. I told all my friends that I was going to marry a guy named Darien one day, and we would have 5 girls named Serena, Rae, etc (all of the names of the sailor scouts...but I'm drawing a blank right now). The only problem with liking Sailor Moon was that all the girls in my school made fun of it, so I had to watch it and give into my obsession on the down low and couldn't talk about it to other girls or run the risk of being singled out and made fun of like Allie Sinclair....who actually kind of deserved it because she took the Sailor Sceptor to school and hit other girls with it sooo...yeah....on a side note; In high school, my friends and I rediscovered our closeted sailor moon loving selves and would have mini marathons of all the series and we even nicknamed ourselves after the characters...I was Sailor Mars, thank you very much.
I will now kind of geek out and include some pictures from the Sailor Moon series that drove my little elementary school girl mind wild.  I thought Darien was the most swoon-worthy guy ever. I would blush if someone so much as mentioned his name...who would have known you could have a crush on a cartoon? but seriously...I think the reason I wouldn't give any boys the time of day in middle school was because I was secretly comparing them to Darien/Tuxedo Mask and they just couldn't measure up. I suppose my dream guy would still kinda resemble him...and he would of course give me roses and things as'm kind of creeping myself out right now ahaha.

I actually had a lot more TV shows than that...Old school Nickelodeon is one of them...what with Gulla Gulla Island, and The Rugrats, and Hey Arnold. Also Are You Afraid of the Dark...I think that show was my introduction to the Paranormal. So what about you? Flashback to what was on your TV when you were a kid and let us know what you grew up with :)


  1. I didn't like pink when I was a kid either... I still don't like pink actually haha I don't even remember Darien from Sailor Moon.. I need to re-fresh my memory. I also loved the Power Rangers, I don't remember having a favourite Ranger though.

  2. Once again Im at a loss as to what all these shows are!! LOL Im terrible!!

  3. I'm with Madame D! Lol! I don't remember any of these shows. But it's nice to know I'm not the only person around her who is an "old schooler" Lol!

    Great Story!

  4. YEAH For Sailor Moon! I think it was a really great show, well when I was a kid .... Now I need something more ... raw maybe ???

  5. It's perfectly possible to have a cartoon crush. ;)

    Here is my shame-worthy secret ;)

  6. Wasn't Sailor Moon awesome?!?! I fell in love with Darien. GREAT pick!


  7. I had a friend in high school obsessed with Sailor Moon, she gave us all nicknames to, I was Sailor Venus. I think I mentioned this some where else too.

  8. I don't think they show this at the Old Folks home. I've seen bits and pieces or maybe it's just Dementia setting in.

  9. I didn't watched any of this, except Power Rangers, in my country they didn't show that much japanese shows. More Hanna Barbera.

  12. I still love Sailor Moon! haha. I was really into Powerpuff Girls in middle and high school, too.

    When I was a kid, it was all about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and My Little Pony. And don't forget Wishbone!

  13. I watched a lot of boys cartoons when I was young, too; Gargoyles, Power Rangers, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Ghost Busters... I think I watched The Big Bad Beetleborgs, too, but I'm not sure. They definitely sound and look familiar.

    Here's my Dirty Little Secret

  14. Omg SAILOR MOON! Sailor Moon was my introduction to anime as well. I loved it as a kid. I had a lot of the movies and had Serena's Sailor Scepter that lit up and played music.

    Ha, I was such a dork! Well, I still am. I still watch the movies once in a while.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who nicknamed myself after one of the Sailor Scouts and who was in love with Darien. *sigh*

    And yay for Power Rangers! I hated Pink as well. My favorite was red and blue!

    Thanks for sharing. =)
