    I personally don't think Disney and Nick will be as good as they were in the 90's and early 2000's. Shows are so cheesy these days.
    My favorites were SpongeBob, Family Guy(before it turned stupid), rugrats, All Grown Up, As Told by Ginger, Danny Phantom, Drake & Josh, Chalk Zone, Lizzie McGuire, Phil of the Future, Suit life of Zach and Cody

    I'm going to date myself terribly here but, I used to love The Hardy Boys, BJ and The bear, Dukes of Hazzard and, Battlestar Galactica (pre Galactica 1980.) I saw them all, first run, used to have a crush on Dirk Benedict, but only because he was born in the same town I was born in.

    Apparently, when I was just a pup on the shores of the Chesapeake bay, I would watch David the Gnome religiously. I did retain a few vague memories of it, and when I found it again on youtube a few years ago it was just as good.

    As an older child, I also watched Invader Zim, some other cartoons including SWAT Cats, but those apparently left less of an impression. When I found my niece watching SWAT Cats recently I was surprised that I had forgotten about it completely. I've got the complete Zim series on DVD, though!

    If you grew up on the Chesapeake, do you remember Stu Kerr, Pete the Pirate, Royal Parker, Capt. Cheaspeake or Rhea Feiken and J.P. (Before Rhea moved over to MPT from WBAL-TV), or are you not old enough to remember these local stars?

    Sorry, if I had bothered to look at your profile, I would have realized you're a bit younger than me, although, if you watched channel 52 at any time during your childhood, you got to see Stu Kerr in action, hosting a cartoon show, with his character doing a takeoff of CMDR Riker from Star Trek:TNG. FWIW, WMAR-TV did Stu a big dis-service when station management showed him the door, after 48 years with them. (Personally, Perfesser Kool and His Fun Skool that ran on WMAR in the late '60 through the mid 70's was his best work.)

    Sorry, I don't think I was old enough. I barely remember watching The Little Mermaid and The Fox and the Hound. (Fox and the Hound, by the way,is an adorable movie, and it's just as good in German)

    I loved to watch documentaries and Disney movies. My favorite had to have been The Little Mermaid and the documentary called Mount Kilimanjaro. I watched that documentary five times through on five different mornings. All those mornings in a row.

    I alluded to a few local kid shows from Baltimore I watched as a kid. Living in South Central PA, I also got to watch shows from Lancaster and Philadelphia, in addition to Baltimore. The was Marijane Landis, who was one of the pioneers of Central PA Television, who hosted Slapstick Theater, Percy Platypus and Friends and Sunshine Corners on WGAL. Sadly, she passed away shortly before Christmas 2015 at age 85. Also, John McIlnery, who was the news department at WGAL until about 40 years ago, passed away earlier this week at the age of 89.

    As for Philadelphia Kid shows, other than Dick Clark and American Bandstand on what is now WPVI, there was Sally Starr and Chief Halftown on WPVI, Wee Willie Webber on WPHL, Gene London and Pixanne on WCAU, and Capt. Noah on what is now WTXF.

    I completely agree with you, tv now isn't great. And almost all of the shows on your list I loved too! I also loved the Fairly OddParents, Ed Edd n Eddy, Codename: Kids Next Door, Powderpuff Girls, Dexter's Laboratory, the Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy, Winx Club, Dragon Tales, Arthur, and Totally Spies.
