Oldies But Goodies on Netflix #StreamTeam

This post brought to you by Netflix. All opinions are my own.

It’s sounds silly, but I get a weird sense of joy when my children enjoy older shows that I used to watch when I was little.

I grew up with shows like Saved By The bell and Family Ties. Jem and Strawberry Shortcake were a couple of my Saturday morning favorites.


Watching tv was the perfect opportunity to get close. Snuggling with my Nanny was a favorite pass time of mine.

Since we gave up cable my children have been re-discovering these classic titles on Netflix. They even have some of my favorite Disney movies!

Now when they ask me to sit with them while they watch a show I am eager to see which episode they are on.

Here is a small sampling of some classic shows to share with your kids… all on Netflix.

For your big kids:

  62. Jesselyn A/Jesstinger says

    Having Netflix has long been on top of our wish list ~ but by time we pay off all the necessities and the ever present unexpected expense that never fail to arise ~ it just never makes the cut into our very austere budget.

    We would both be thrilled to be able to enjoy NETFLIX ~ and even threee months would be a BIG treat! There are so many great series that I didn’t get in to (or even know about) until several seasons in: Breaking Bad, Desperate Housewives, House – and some that are quite simply NetFlix productions! This prize would be a real treat!
