Wondering What To Read Next?

50 90/00's TV Shows I Loved As A Kid.

I'm turning 25 this Friday and I thought what better way to talk about it on my blog with a bit of nostalgia of my childhood, after all 25 is a bit of a chapter in your life (after turning 21 of course!)

 Inspired by the lovely Nicole over at Through Your Eyes Blog, she recently wrote the post 50 TV SHOWS I LOVED AS A KID and I couldn't stop thinking about it and discussing the TV shows I loved as a kid. 

I truly believe that in the 90s and early 00s the TV Programmes were just top of their game for children and myself like other children couldn't wait to finish school and watch their favourites. Before the introduction of the internet and such wonderful things as MSN, TV was one of the main ways we entertained our younger selves. 

I absolutely loved constructing this list of 50 TV SHOWS I LOVED AS A KID along with some GIFS (obviously!)

1. Round The Twist.
'Have you ever, ever felt like this how strange things happen by going round the twist' honestly the theme itself will probably remind you of this programme! 

2. Rugrats.

3. Hey Arnold! 
He had a pretty cool hairstyle and you can never say the title without using the theme tune!

4. CatDog

5. Johnny Bravo

6. The Powerpuff Girls

7. Get Your Own Back

8. Tracy Beaker
Who else found Justine Littlewood just an annoying child?!

9. Dexter's Laboratory
10. Come Outside
Who doesn't remember Pippin the dog? I remember watching this in primary school

14. Sabrina the Teenage Witch

15. The Worst Witch

16. The Wild Thornberry's

20. As Told by Ginger
