  1. I loved Are You Afraid of the Dark. I was watching some episodes on Youtube the other day. I was terrified of the episode with the vampire (I think that's what it was!) inside a hospital.

    As a kid, I used to watch Big Comfy Couch, Postman Pat, Kitty Kat, Barney...Those are the ones I can think of. Oh wait! There's also Dudley the Dragon. :D

  2. OMG i forgot about some of these completely. I used to watch Are you Afraid of the Dark and I remember weinerville. And Doug having a crush on Patty i think it was. lol wow thanks for bringing back some memories
