Scott Tweedie was his name !

PROMPT: What were your favourite TV shows growing up? Why?

- Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide: this show was brilliant- in terms of characters, timing of jokes and educational side to it whilst all remaining being a wholesome comedy
- Totally Spies: it was super cool seeing three female teenagers being absolute baddasses by being secret agents, but also enjoying shopping, makeup etc. This show was the epitome of feminism- you can be a badass and love stereotypical girly things.
- Kim Possible: see reason for above- but Kim's character was super refreshing
- House of Anubis: good integration of history and teen drama

^ I have heaps more but these are pretty much my main ones :)

Fun fact: I wrote all of Nedís tips down in my notebook everytime I watched an episode.

Ooooo well when I was suuuper young I fondly remember watching Thomas the tank engine almost 24/7 ahaha. I had a shit ton of train sets as well so I guess that's that. In terms of later years I started to watch a decent amount of disney but one show that stood out was 'Zeke and Luther,' which was a show where two sk8er bois just went around doing random shit from what I can remember at least. This is actually the show that pushed me to start skateboarding eventhough I was really scared of falling off at the time.

As a kid I remember watching a lot of Bob the builder and Postman Pat - but I seem to remember that being more because it's what my younger brothers were watching rather than it being what I watched.

Chitty Chitty bang bang got rewatched so many times in my house that I reckon i probably could have started reciting the lines from it (haven't seen it in ages, should probably go rewatch it sometime).

There was a movie me and my (slightly) older brother used to rewatch a lot when we were young (before primary school, but I don't know how old exactly). It's one of the earliest memories I have (or at least one of the earliest that I have an approximate date for). No idea what movie it was though. Something about lions.

I was always more into reading books than TV when I was a kid though (probably because we had one crap TV between 6 kids lol).

When I was slightly older, but still a kid, i watched a lot of horrible histories and time team (had a slight obsession lol). Early teens I got a bit obsessed with sci fi and watched every episode of stargate in a ridiculously short time frame. Then rewatched them.

I'm sure there were others but I can't remember any of them. Distinct lack of the simpsons and similar shows because I wasn't allowed to watch them :'(

Sometimes it's a good thing haha. Not so fun when my sister decided she didn't want to play our rough games when she was about 12 and it became me (9ish) vs. my brothers who would have been 10 and 11. My older brothers were kind enough to put my little brothers (who would have been about 6 and 4) on my team. I got beaten up a lot lol.

PROMPT: What were your favourite TV shows growing up? Why?

The Simpsons... I can remember the summer nights in front of the boxy tv waiting for the (then) boring news to end on Channel 10. And then... the most glorious theme song would play. Honestly, the show taught me some useful things. How to skip school, Darwin's evolution theory, Elon Musk (he is such a mitochondria omg) and how to be a little Lisa Simpson.

Fun fact: I have watched every Simpson's episode to date  :D

I grew up with a lot of anime when I lived overseas, some of them being:

Sailor Moon
Detective Conan
Doraemon
Pokemon
Fruits Basket
Ouran High School Host Club

They always broadcasted these shows during prime time so every Saturday I'd wake up earlier than my family to watch the next episode of Detective Conan or Sailor Moon.

When I moved to Australia, they didn't really broadcast anime (I think at some point they broadcasted Vampire Knight and Ouran High School Host Club on ABC 3 or something) but I did watch a lot of Tom and Jerry and Mr Bean.
