    Gosh, remember those shows we watched when we were younger? My all-time most favorite PBS kids show would have to be "Shining Time Station." Man, that was one of the greatest PBS kids shows ever!!!!!! Also really enjoyed "Lamb Chop's Play Along." Everybody in my life loved that show. In my later elementary school years, I really enjoyed the show "Arthur" based on the books. And let's not forget one of everyone's favorites "The Magic School Bus."
    Most honorable mention: "Zoom" I watched the 1999 series of it. I know it originally started 1972. That's because my mom saw me wathcing an episode of the new one and told me that the show was originally on when she was a kid. Most of you on this site probably somehow remember the original "Zoom" tv show. It's sad that one of the kids from the 1999-2000 season named Jared Nathan died in a car accident because his friend was driving drunk. Would you say that the 1972 show is better than the 1999 show? What are/were your favorite PBS kids shows? Another one I loved was "The Letter People."

    I still watch Arthur at 21 - it's currently in it's 14th season (unfortunately the States have only gotten 5 episodes so far, where as Australia has already gotten the entire 20 episode season!) - it's not as well written anymore but I just can't pull away.

    Oh yes, I have a ton of memories with PBS. I never had cable growing up, so I watched PBS most of the time.

    I loved watching Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego everyday after I got home from school.

    PBS Kids does have great shows for the kids today, but the series that were around back when I was a kid (and even before that as well) are better.

    I still do watch Arthur when I get the chance, it's one of the only PBS Kids series I still watch. I'm so glad that they still air this on PBS after over a decade!

    Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego, I wish they would put it back on tv.

    Mr. Roger's Neighborhood
    Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego
    The Magic Schoolbus (even though when I first saw this show, I was in middle school)
    Arthur (I was in high school when this started lol)

    My cousin, when she was younger, used to watch In Between the Lions, and when I babysat her, I'd watch it sometimes. I thought it was a cute show.

    That used to come on PBS? Well, that answers a lot of questions. I know I used to watch it, but for the life of me, couldn't remember what station it was on.

    Wow! I used to watch a lot of PBS kids' shows from the 70s on to the early 80s. There was one show, however, that taught kids how to read and used puppets. I think it was called Readalong. Two of the puppets were talking shoes and another was an old lady. Another show I remember was Clyde Frog. I can't remember much about it but it seems like it was kinda dumb although I liked watching it as a kid. I think I also watched the first season of 3-2-1 Contact. That was around 1980 or 81. Other shows I remember were Zoom, Electric Company, Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood, and The Letter People.

    I remember The Electric Company had Spider-Man on it. Even though I wasn't that into Marvel compared to DC, I still fangirled whenever Spider-Man was on the show.
