Typical Saturday? When I was around four, five, it was getting up in the morning to watch my favorite shows like "Pee-Wee's Playhouse", "The Bugs Bunny and Tweety Show", "Schoolhouse Rock", then it would be pancakes with my mom and dad. Very often I'd go with my dad to my favorite McDonald's where I would play in their playplace which seemed like a freakin' wonderland to a kid, a happy meal after. I lived in a coastal town and the McDonald's was near the ocean--it was beautiful out there! Other times, I would play with my best friend who lived right next door, everything from playing ball to barbies or just making up random games out of our heads, LOL. I'm talking HOURS out in the backyard, getting lots of fresh air, sunlight and exercise, things a lot of modern-day kids aren't getting these days because of being in the house distracted by modern technology.
On Saturday nights, sometimes I'd be allowed to stay up late to watch Nick at Nite. Great memories! Back in the day, Nick at Nite played real old shows like "I Love Lucy", "Mr. Ed", "The Dick Van Dyke Show", "Dragnet", "Get Smart". I've been a classic film and TV fan ever since, I'm obsessed with retro pop culture and nostalgia. I credit old-school Nick at Nite for that!
