Don't forget good old PBS. You can't go wrong with them.

I would be more inclined to find the classics that you you grew up with. Anything you don't know I suggest you watch a few episodes first and be critical about the content, it is surprising how many shows marketed to kids actually have adult themes in it that you may not like (one cartoon I used to watch in the kids time slot growing up actually had a group sex scene which the TV network didn't know was coming until parents complained after it aired) and a lot of kids shows these days are just outright annoying and portrays kids getting everything they want, only teaches kids how to be annoying ****s who get everything their way.

I enjoyed watching Looney Tunes and Merry Melodies when I was younger.


They don't make them like they used to!

I presume you can get them on DVD, but there are many now on YouTube.

I preferred building things, riding my bike, and playing games on a Macintosh LC II over TV. I'm glad now I didn't grow up being a couch potato. Limit TV and video games to about one hour (or even half that) a day to kids - it's more important they run around outside (in the backyard).
