10 Childhood Shows I Miss

I associate a lot of TV shows with my childhood since technology like tablets, the internet and all that in general didn't come into my life until I was around 11. I am a 90s baby and I feel that childrens TV was at its prime and I thought I would share with you some of my favourite TV shows I miss. I think I should mention that I had a Chorus box, now Virgin, when I was small and I watched a lot from CBBC but my parents got rid of it due to my brother watching so much TV. We still had channels but they weren't very good, yes RTÉ I'm talking to you.

Drake and Josh
Drake and Josh was one of my favourite TV shows and was always on and I think it still sometimes runs on Nickelodeon. The adventures of 2 step brothers who had complete different personalities and an evil little sister who plotted pranks. I can't believe there was only 4 seasons as I feel like I still haven't watched all the episodes.

The Suite Life of Zack and Cody
Here I am in your life, here you are in mine. Yes, we have a suite life most of the time. Another show I would happily watch. I used to wish I had a twin so I could be like Zack and Cody and for a while my cousin and I called each other Zack and Cody, I was Cody. Even though I loved The Suite Life I didn't like The Suite Life on Deck as much as it just wasn't as good and Maddie wasn't in it any more.

I needed a new Nickelodeon TV show to fill the void in my heart that Drake and Josh left and that was iCarly. There's actually a teaser for iCarly in the last Drake and Josh episode. I enjoyed watching iCarly as it was completely different to everything else. It was about a girl who had a web show with  her two best friends. I loved Sam as she did what she wanted whenever she wanted.

Hannah Montana
I was obsessed with Hannah Montana and everything to do with Miley Cyrus. I had all the books, albums and plenty of t-shirts with her face on it. I even went to see The Hannah Montana Movie in the cinema with a few friends. I loved the show and Lily and Miley's friendship.

The Emperor's New School
I used to wake up early on a Saturday morning to watch this cartoon. Kronk and Yzma trying to get rid of Kuzco in any way shape or form including trying to turn him into an alpaca.

The Fairly Odd Parents
When I heard they were getting rid of Timmy for a rebrand last year I was annoyed. I loved this show and the crazy antics that happened in a world of fairy god parents. Because of this show I badly wanted my own fairy god parents but in reality I just wanted Wanda.

Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide
Did I watch this show to help me through middle school? NO! I just liked the dramatic things that would happen in this school and also Gordy going round trying to kill random wild animals that would randomly get into the school. I remember rushing to finish my homework to watch this show and loving every minute.

The Story of Tracey Beaker
Switching it up with some CBBC content, the iconic Story of Tracey Beaker and Tracey Beaker Returns based off the book by Jacqueline Wilson which is about Tracey Beaker who lives in a children's home hoping her famous mom will come back and rescue her from her situation. I don't even remember does she even meet her mother but that was besides the point. Thinking back this show was quite unique as it wasn't all prim and perfect and it is a reality for some children more than the likes of Hannah Montana or iCarly.

The Sarah Jane Adventures
One of the weird and wonderful sci-fi shows that I don't remember too much about what went on in it. There was definitely aliens and an evil Siri who nearly kills Sarah Jane and a neighbour who would help her do things. I don't remember much of it but I do know I loved watching it.

Lilo and Stitch
Lilo and Stitch going off to collect Jumbas missing experiments was something I enjoyed watching on a Saturday morning. Pleakley trying to help them but normally ends up worrying or being the get away driver. I always wondered why Jumba wasn't the main guy for capturing the experiments as they were his experiments but that's a different story for a different day.

What TV shows do you miss?

Thanks for being awesome,


  1. I loved story of Tracy beaker! I grew up watching it and my mum would worry I would turn out like Tracy because I watched so much of it!

    1. Thanks for commenting Nicole! That's hilarious, I think my mam was afraid I would turn into a tv because I watched so much of it.
