Blast From The Past

A few months ago we got rid of our cable. While I was sad that I would not be able to watch sister wives or Hoarders. Or every other strange show on TLC. I was happy to be saving the money. Instead we have the regular channels and we got netflix.

Netflix is crazy, there are so many options. My girls know how to work it and Squeal can even set up a movie on netflix through my iphone all on her own. Dora is her go to movie to watch.

What I was not prepared for was the blast from the past I would have. Seriously how many 80’s cartoons are on netflix? Lets just say enough to spark up many memories from my past. Here are just a few I have caught them watching that I remember from when I was young.

Rainbow Bright. Gotta love Rainbow Bright pure classic. I had forgotten there was more girls than just her in the cartoon. I definitely remembered her horse. My girls love this.

Scooby Doo. It is so funny to see how much cartoons have changed. Some of the scooby doo plots are so odd. Again the Screamettes cannot get enough of it.

Mario Brothers. This was more of a favorite of the umpire’s but I remember it as well. I watch it now and cringe at how cheesy it was. My girls and I all do the Mario dance at the end during the credits, and we rock at it. here’s a video of it to jog your memory and so you can do the Mario dance as well.

What cartoons did you watch when you were young and do you think your kid’s would like them?

    Smurfs! She-Ra which is actually on Netflix.

    I got rid of my cable entirely. We don’t even have the regular channels because it was bizzarre how much they charge you to downgrade.

    We only use netflix now.

    I am refusing to participate on the grounds that it will advertise to the world exactly how old I am despite all my valiant efforts to masquerade as a 20-something hip and with it mom.

    besides, I’m pretty sure you don’t know who Space Ghost is anyway…

    We’re still trying to work up the whatever to get rid of our satellite and use Hulu and Netflix. Actually, we’ve already embraced Hulu, we just haven’t signed up for Netflix. Or canceled that other thing that comes with a DVR so that we can actually watch shows. Also? I loved Rainbow Bright. I’ll have to look into the cartoons. I saw the dolls at Target but they look more like Barbie’s than little girls.
