Not as Blonde as I Thought
5 November 2006 | by zlz_guilty_kitty_zlzSee all my reviews

I've been trying to find this for years. My sister doesn't remember it and we used to watch it everyday. No one i know can remember it and looks at me like I'm so blonde I'm imagining things.but I'm not YAY i don't feel so blonde and dumb now. It was a great thing when i was a kid. Cant wait to try n get it on DVD for my kids to watch. I still remember the theme song and sing it in my head when driving down the road. I know that this show wasn't the greatest in the world but it was very entertaining and pretty good for its time. I remember walking up to my sister "bridget" and calling her widget the world watcher and just laugh my butt off at her. When my oldest called her "Aunt Widget" it just brought back all the old memories of watching the show. Now I'm trying to find it!!
