Growing up, watching television was a key component in our childhood. There are a lot of shows we watched as kids that we have forgotten about. Whether these shows were good or bad didn’t really matter because we loved them anyways. A lot of the channels that most 2002-2004 kids watched included Boomerang, PBS kids, Cartoon network, Nickelodeon, and Of course, Disney channel and Disney XD.
Boomerang was probably the most iconic channel for kids growing up in the 2000s. It had the best shows in many opinions. Boomerangs shows included Tom and Jerry, Looney Toons, and the best kids show of all time in my opinion, What’s New Scooby Doo. Scooby Doo was a show about a dog and his owner, who had a group of friends who liked to solve mysteries. As a kid it was thrilling to watch and just an overall super wholesome show.
“Scooby Doo was GASSSS, i remember watching it and being scared”- Dakota Kempthorne a junior at Davis.
Another Popular Show was Arthur, It was about animals portrayed as humans and Arthur’s everyday problems. This show was aired on PBS kids and every kid in that grew up in the 2000’s watched this show, along with Martha Speaks, and Ruff Ruffs Playhouse. Another groovy show on PBS kids was Cyberchase. Cyberchase, was about a group of kids that were brought into the digital universe by a hacker and they have to figure out ways to destroy him. Never the less this show was straight gas.
“PBS kids shows made me feel so cool growing up.” -Luke Weston a Sophomore at Davis high exclaimed.
But lets not forget about the most relevant and liked kids channel of them all, Cartoon Network. CTN was just the coolest kids channel known to man. If you were a cool kid you definitely watched this as a kid. They had so many good shows to watch. The most Popular show on there was Adventure time. Not everyone’s Mom would allow them to watch this as kids because they say it makes you loose braincells. But in reality these shows were way ahead of their time. Adventure time was about the adventures of Finn, and his dog Jake. they were just random adventures with lots of comedic relief. Steven Universe is another show featured on CTN, and it is one of the most wholesome shows imaginable. It’s got this soft lofi vibe, and you can watch it to put you to sleep or in a good mood.
All of this leads to the last and coolest channel of them all, Disney Chanel. If you were born in the 2000s and you didn’t watch Disney Chanel, Oh boy. Disney Chanel had so many bangers its hard to list them. But lets start with Hannah Montana. This show is about a Girl named Miley Stuart, who has an alter ego named Hannah Montana who is famous and loves to perform. But she can’t do both so she keeps it hidden. This show was literally everyone’s childhood and it was so amazing. The last show I will mention is Phineas and Ferb, This show was just so well put together and it was 20 mins of straight serotonin. It was about two genius brothers who made crazy things happen. Although its over and its not the same anymore going back and watching all of these shows, we will never forget them because they helped us so much throughout the early stages of life/].
