Favorite Kid's Movies / TV Shows

Whether you enjoyed it while small, enjoyed watching it with your kids, or are scraping the bottom of the barrel for something to do during the COVID-19 pandemic, what have you liked?

I just rediscovered the 1985 sci-fi movie Explorers on Amazon, starring a young Ethan Hawke & RIver Phoenix.  Aliens send blueprints for building a fast-travelling force-field bubble to a group of friends in one of their dreams, and they integrate it into a spaceship made of junkyard scrap.  Good 12-Y.O. fun.

My wife discovered the cartoon Bunnicula on Boomerang.  Adventures of a carrot-sucking vampire rabbit and his domestic cat & dog pals.  Since Sean Astin is voicing the cat, there have been more than a couple Lord of the Rings references snuck in.  Pretty good, as ten-minute shorts go.

    I uses to watch Curious George with my son when he was little. He's 15 now. We actually watch the evening news and together and pick it apart. Best comedy on tv. We also watch cooking shows and critique them :D ..

    I liked the Twighlight Zone when I was young.

    My 12 year old has decided that he is going to watch all 30-something seasons of “The Simpsons”

    Man, that first season was awesome

    Does Gunsmoke count?  It's still a great watch, and my 7 year old grandson likes it.

    He and I sometimes watch Gilligan's Isle or The Dukes of Hazard together.  However, I can only take so much of those.  The Apple Dumpling Gang is pretty good, as it's hard NOT to enjoy something with Tim Conway and Don Knotts in cahoots with each other.

    Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.

    You guys ever get a chance to watch the movie "UP," I highly recommend it. Maybe the best  kid movie I've ever seen.
