I also remember liking Curious George as well~
And Clifford the Big Red Dog.
And the Berenstein Bears.
And Bill Nye the Science Guy.
And Dragon Tales.
And the Magic School Bus.
and seasame street, teletubbies and barney
It's been so long since I've watched any of them though.
I've watched Arthur since it first came out. I still watch it, even after they had all those "special" episodes where all the characters were turned into minorities with diseases for one or two episodes to include every little obscure group for some reason instead of just leaving everything ambiguous so kids could interpret their own situations on to the characters however they wanted. Some of the characters' voices never changed, and some changed six or seven times.
Reading Rainbow was cool; Magic School Bus was good but could have been a lot better; Bill Nye was the fake Beekman.
But the best show was Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood. It took me forever to notice the switch he used to control Trolley. There's so much I could say.
It wasn't a kids show, but PBS also had the Red Green Show. That was pretty funny but it was never on consistently. I'm not sure what channel it was on but there was a late night (I often fell asleep while it was on) archaeology show called Terra X that I remember. The skull in the opening credits scared me but the rest of the progaram was good. A note to future television producers: if you're going to have a skull pop out of the ground have a warning before it happens.
If you're frightened of dying and you're holding on,
you'll see devils tearing your life away.
If you've made your peace,
then the devils are really angels freeing you from the earth.
