i remember this show
5 August 2003 | by a_rardenSee all my reviews

gosh, i'm only 18 and i'm already acting like i'm a senior..."remember when...?" But I remember how much i used to love this show when i was younger. This one and Salute your shorts. I remember with my tiny tv in my bedroom, on Saturdays i made sure that i had my dinner and enough snacks to last me through both shows so that i didn't miss a second! I think these were two of the best shows that Nick had. But the stuff today for kids is just ridiculous. Nothing like what we had, with all of the 'lessons' and the true acceptable comedy in them.
