No Right Answer: Best Childhood Show Ever

Reading Rainbow all the way. That show singlehandedly got me hook on reading when I was like 7 years old. Oh, and I have to give honorable mention to the Great Space Coaster, simply cause it was sci fi awesomeness for my little childhood brain.

But yeah, guys, great debate this week. Both the Street and the Hood were monumental in my childhood. Bravo good sirs. Bravo.

Here in México we had this guy instead of Big Bird, his name is Abelardo

It always threw me off that in the movie it was the yellow guy but they had the same name, but they actually explained that on the show with something about them being cousins, it was weird I don't remember it very well.

living in Canada, I don't remember Mr.Rodgers but I do remember Mr.Dressup

AW YEAH!
but it seems they have their similarities after looking into it. buut Mr.dressup did not have as stupid red cardigan. nor a magical treasure box that could have ANYTHING in it. and I mean anything

And that is why Sesame Street wins.

disappointed:
Mr. Rogers dislikes minorities

Maybe you should include a source before making claims like this

It's a joke, the source for which is the video I'm commenting on in which they basically make the exact same joke. For the record, I absolutely don't believe Mr Rogers is racist, quite the opposite. I know this is the Internet but I thought it was one of the more irony sensitive parts of the Internet.

Monkeyman O'Brien:
Chris loses for resorting to racism. Just bad form.
And even if he did not resort to such a underhanded tactic Mr Rogers would have won anyway.

I concur.

Clearly the best childhood show ever is Muppet Babies. Everything else is second rate.

Here in NL we only had our own localized Sesame Street, and it was (is) huuuuge.
Mr. Rogers probably never made it past Canada, so I bet most people where: "Bwuh?".

Please think a bit more on stuff like this when you pick your two options, guys!
Wikipedia is your friend when checking if your audience knows wtf you're on about :\

Right you are! We sometimes forget that our numerous and sexy fans are international. Sorry about that!

emeraldrafael:
...you could only watch Sesame street for so long before you finally said "I know my numbers, I know my abcs, I know all this stuff".

That's when you graduate to The Electric Company & 3-2-1 Contact (If my memories of those shows are correct.)

Neither Sesame street nor Mr. Rogers was in my childhood. As a kid i heard much about it and i wanted to see it, but it just wasnt in the TV Program and the first time i heard about Mr. Rogers was only a few years back.

So i really cant grasp any hype about either of those shows. My early years were probably dominated by the Muppets, which in turn teached me that women are pretty scary.

Chris, Kyle, I'm sorry but you are both wrong. The correct answer is "Bill Nye the Science Guy".

/thread

Okay, kids. If we're talking about cool, educational shows, let's talk about Beakman's World.

Anyone heard of that show? Of course not. Only cool people know about it. THIS is where that nerd Bill Nye copied his show's concept. Beakman was the precursor; the first science guy to turn science cool and not-boring at all. Beakman taught me so many useful things to the point where I'd go to school and know a tad bit more than the other kids. It taught me useful things, it made me smarter, none of that dumb "Oh, well, here's how to tie your shoe!" and "Let's learn to jump and run around in circles!". Anybody can teach me that. And even so, I'm pretty sure I would have eventually figured out which way is up and down by myself.

Sesame Street and Mr. Rogers were okay for a pre-school kid...for a little while. You can only teach the same topics over and over again before the kid gets bored. The characters were great and memorable, and that's why the show is still alive today. But that's about it. Beakman was great if you just wanted to be smarter, to learn while watching TV.

To me, Sesame Street was fun to watch if there was truly nothing else to watch and I didn't feel like tuning in to an action movie or whatever. Mr. Rogers, though, was just plain creepy and made me fall asleep. I never truly understood what he was trying to teach me, what with the dull puppets and his low, monotone voice. That's just me.

Does Kyle always wear two watches and I am just noticing this now?

I think we need a debate series of Best Nickelodeon Shows from our Childhood. You know, when the channel was actually awesome. Double Dare vs. Guts. Clarissa Explains it All vs. Pete & Pete. The Secret World of Alex Mack vs. Space Cases. Doug vs. Rugrats. There are SO MANY POTENTIAL MATCHUPS.

Honestly...? ..Thomas the Tank Engine...I can't think of anything else...because I loved Thomas the Tank Engine..'nuff said.
