Throwback TV Show Fun and Netflix Giveaway!

Lately my Facebook news feed is saturated every Thursday with old high school pics, bay photos from the 70’s and 80’s, and way to many photos showing off high bangs and acid-washed jeans.  It seems like the latest craze is bringing back things that were popular in the past. Keeping up with this retro trend, our family decide to check out some of the #TBT shows and series available on Netflix.

Scrolling through the Netflix menu I was thrilled to see so many shows I had forgotten about and couldn’t wait watch for the second time with my children.   One of my favorite cartoons when I was little was Jem and the Holograms, a fun punky show about a all girl rock band with pink streaked hair.  I couldn’t wait to share the show with my seven year old daughter and see what mischief  The Stingers and The Misfits were causing for Jerrica (“Jem”) and her friends now!

For my son we found the original Transformers cartoons and he couldn’t  believe that the Transformers were every bit as popular when his daddy was his age.  He was able to see the original Optimus Prime and his favorite Bumblebee battle Megatron and the Deceptacons.  It is now on his favorites list for after school!  Because he is still a little guy, he also loves The Smurfs!  So cute!

    We love Netflix and watching the oldies on it! These are great ones. I have yet to watch Jem with my daughter but now it’s on my list. We love Busytown and old school Sesame!
