    The big one for me is Are you Afraid of the Dark. It's still fun to watch, but the acting and set design are a lot more low budget then I remembered.

    Legends Of The Hidden Temple is quite boring after rewatching it.

    GUTS and Double Dare are just as good as they were.

    Ren and Stimpy don't have the PaZazz like they did.

    Most shows I watched as a child are still watchable to me, and I still enjoy them. The only one that really comes to mind is Full House. I used to think it was so cool when I was a little kid, now it's just flat out cheesy...and yet, I still watch it sometimes when it's on cause I find the cheesiness to be entertaining.

    This is easy.

    The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 - When you're young, you can't wait to wake up on Saturday Mornings and watch this fine piece of video game-based cartoonery. Unfortunately, when you're older, and you get the DVD, you're like... "Ehh." It's weird Mario fanfiction with animation errors. I'm pretty sure the same goes with the Super Mario Bros. Super Show. Only watch these when you have a younger person in your life.

    All That - The first few seasons are somewhat funny, then Danny Tamberlli (sp probably) came, and the show started to seem... less than stellar. Things get even worse once Lori Beth, Kenan, and Kel are gone. The show seems pretty asinine compared to what you thought of it back then.

    Either way, anything Nickelodeon (such as Legends) is only good to watch in small doses, when you want to relive your easy-going childhood.

    Actually, I enjoy these shows either the same or more than I used to as I grow older, the latter because I suddenly get all these references or adult innuendo that flew over my head when I was younger.

    Roseanne is another show I lost interest for quite a while now. But Married With Children is awesome!

    "Saved by the Bell." I thought that was the coolest thing when I was six years old. I didn't realize back then how kitschy it really is.

    Indeed. The more I see it the more I like it.

    A while ago I saw Danger Bay for the first time in a long time and thought it was horrible. Also I caught a bit of Rocky and Bullwinkle on Teletoon Retro and couldn't stand it.

    Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog wasn't as good as I remembered it and this is coming from a fan of the Sonic games.

    I loved Full House as a kid, but never really watch it anymore. The few reruns I've seen, since then, are just too corny.

    I know, right? Maybe it's because they play two episodes a day instead of one. Maybe we wouldn't be getting sick of it as much.

    To me, I kinda knew what I was getting into as a kid. I basically know that show that grown ups liked, as well as me, I would like now. And if it remained consistain the whole series, then I liked it. Now if the last time I saw the show, I was 3 or 4 years old, then it might be a let down. But for the most part, you can count on liking pixar films from childhood to adulthood and even when your old. But for the most part, i will remember one or 2 things about the show, like a quote or a moment. But when i see it agian, I get a whole new experience, and I DONT always like that, because I dont want to "erase" my old memories.
