Today, most kid shows are considered to be much worse than their predecessors. Of course, that’s a matter of opinion. Personally, I don’t think they are terrible, but they try too hard to appeal to the 21st century. But, we’re not here to talk about the new kid shows. We’re here to reminisce on some of the shows that defined our childhood, except for Caillou.

Flashback to the silver age of Nickelodeon television. We were introduced to a family sitcom known as Drake and Josh. This show was about two teenagers whose parents get married and they become step brothers. Drake and Josh was meant to teach kids life lessons about family and friends. For starting in the early 2000’s, it still holds up well today. There aren’t many pop culture references, due to Nickelodeon avoiding copyright. My rating is eight TVs out of 10.

Moving onto Disney Channel’s time in the silver age, they taught us life lessons with The Suite Life of Zack and Cody. In this show, we followed two twin boys named Zack and Cody as they grew up in a hotel with their mother. This show is a little confusing because one episode they’ll have average school problems and the next they’ll be in a parallel universe. Either way, it’s still a good show. My rating is seven TVs out of 10.

Ed, Edd, n Eddy was aired on Cartoon Network and ran until 2008. This show is about three boys as they go around their town, scamming their friends in order to afford jawbreakers. Ed is the dumbest of the group of boys and always accidentally messed with Eddy’s plans to scam everyone. Edd, or Double-D, is the genius of the group and analyzed every part of Eddy’s plans in the hopes to ensure their success. Finally, Eddy is the con artist of the group and always comes up with over the top plans to make a few quarters in order to buy him and his friends jawbreakers. My rating is six TV’s out of 10.

Finally, with the only show in this review still on-air to date, I finish off with Arthur. Arthur aired in 1996 on the PBS. This show was told through the eyes of an 8 year old aardvark as he learns how to deal with life. It was a bit of a weird show, but only because it follows animals rather than humans. It’s also odd that Arthur has been eight for 21 years. I don’t know much about animals, but I’m pretty sure they age. Regardless of that, Arthur is still an entertaining show. My rating for this show is six TVs out of 10.
