Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

I was minding my own business yesterday, just sitting on the couch and watching TV. As I was flipping through the channels I saw that Willy Wonka was on and decided to watch for a minute. Forty-five minutes later, I realized that I was totally engulfed in the movie (one I’ve seen a hundred times) […]

Disney Princess Misfits

I really didn’t know what to title this one. Not too long ago, I wrote about Disney Princesses and while I was writing and researching (I’m making this blog sound so important) I came across so many female characters that get swept under the rug because they aren’t technically princesses. So I figured I would […]

The Cat in the Hat (1971)

One of my all time favorite children’s videos was Dr. Seuss’ The Cat in the Hat. This movie had it all–lovable characters, good songs, a level of creepiness, frustration, and some good old fashioned rhyming. What more could a semi-retarded child like myself ask for? Not a whole lot. Before starting, I just want to […]

The Wiggles

As far as creepy Australian kids shows go, I think The Wiggles take the cake. The Wiggles are a group of middle-aged men that sing and perform children’s songs on their television show and also live on stage. The group consists of  5 members (Anthony, Phillip, Murray, Greg, and Jeff) that have changed over time. […]

Rolie Polie Olie

Shows like Rolie Polie Olie show that creativity in children’s television isn’t completely lost. The show actually takes place on a different planet, even in a different universe perhaps. In this familiar world live Olie Polie and his family. They’re a very round looking people, but they don’t look chunky. They’re just literally made of […]

Didi Conn and Kidz Showz

I don’t know what made me think of Didi Conn the other day. For some reason she must have been channeling my brain, asking to be featured on this blog. Who am I to deny such greatness? Didi Conn is most famously known for her role as Frenchy in Grease. You know, the mousy girl […]

Disney Princesses

Princesses have stood the test of time in Disney movies. Both boys and girls, men and women enjoy a good old princess flick. It’s true. I think the reason people like watching princesses is because they’re still human–they make mistakes, cause trouble, say the wrong things…okay now I’m just describing myself. The first Disney princess […]

Even Stevens

Disney started pumping out some quality shows in the late 90’s/early 2000’s. Even Stevens was one of their finest. The show helped launch a lot of young star’s careers like Shia LaBeouf’s for example. Let it be known that I use Shia as my example because he’s the only actor that went on to do […]
