A lot of the same as you....saved by the bell, full house, married with children, boy meets world, fresh prince of bel aire

also - the Secret World of Alex Mac was a huge favourite of mine. Heart Break High was also awesome. I loved cartoons too...Samurai Pizza Cats, Biker Mice from Mars, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the Smurfs, the Snorks, Dangermouse, Superted, Raggy Dolls, the list goes on!

I wasn't allowed to watch much tv when I was a kid. My mom didn't approve and my dad hogged the tv anyway. All I was really supposed to be watching was kid shows like Sesame Street, Captain Kangaroo and the Electric Company, along with Little House on the Prairie. Shows my dad watched that I got to sit in on sometimes were M*A*S*H, Chico and the Man, Sanford and Son, All In the Family and Maude. And I watched The Love Boat at my Nana's.

yeah, I wasn't allowed to watch much TV when I was little either.
when I was way younger I watched Shalom Sesame and Fraggle rock.
I don't remember much else that I watched.

Should I date myself with Little House on The Prairie, not in reruns?

And (I am so ashamed) Falcon Crest, with my mother.

Monty Python.

Doctor Who (old school)

We never had a tv until I was maybe 10, and then never watched it much. I loved CHiPs and Wonder Woman in reruns. I am so freaking mad that they dumped CHiPs DVD seas s after season 2.

I watched a shiitake ton of tv growing up. Like we're talking probably 4 or 5 hours solid on weekdays. When I was also in school.

Couldn't tell you what I particularly loved because honestly I wasn't all that choosy. Name a show that aired between about 1989 and 1998 and I can probably tell you all about it. And sing the theme song.

What's funny is that as an adult, I don't even own a tv. There are a couple of shows that I follow on the computer, and that's it.

Yes! All the Nickelodeon shows. Salute Your Shorts, Hey Dude, Roundhouse, Legends of the Hidden Temple, Clarissa Explains It All, Pete & Pete.

Also Sabrina the Teenage Witch, and most of what's on your original list. Oh, and I seriously loved Wishbone. LOVED.

Oh, and everything on Nick at Nite.

fork yes. Silver Snakes were always the best!

I grew up in the nineties, and I watched all the Nickelodeon shows. All of them. I also watched Comedy Central, so it was Kids In The Hall, MST3K, Ab Fab, and lots of stand up and long-forgotten sketch comedy shows (pretty much all of it went over my head, though). I also watched Married With Children, The Wonder Years and The Simpsons. I did not discover The Golden Girls until later. When I was a really little kid, I watched Adventures In Wonderland, Fraggle Rock, Under The Umbrella Tree, Eureka's Castle, Dumbo's Circus, Zoobile Zoo (the horror!), and the Skinnamarinki Dinki Dink people (I don't recall the name of the show, but if you also grew up with it then you'll know exactly what I'm talking about).

Yes I loved Chips and Wonder Woman too. I have the Wonder Woman DVDs now.

I watched a ton of TV, obviously.

I liked Bump In The Night, Sailor Moon, Batman: The Animated Series, Samurai Pizza Cats, Star Trek TNG, Gargoyles (And I didn't find out until I was older that Gargoyles was largely voiced by the cast of Star Trek!), Bill Nye The Science Guy, Kratt's Kreatures (before they got puppets), The Magic School Bus, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Simpsons, Beetlejuice, Card Captors, The Muppet Show, Muppet Babies, The Big Comfy Couch, Lamb Chop's Play Along, Freakazoid, Animaniacs, and I'm going to stop there because I find it crazy that I watched all that but nowadays I can't be assed to finish a 70 episode long anime.
