I wish my kids could have seen these!
9 February 2007 | by ccschevys10See all my reviews

I grew up watching these and believe it taught me a lot about values. I learned respect for elderly, homeless, different ethnics, etc. I loved these shows and looked forward to them every Saturday. My favorites were The Johnstown Monster and Mr. Horatio Knibbles. Along with The Red Balloon, Shopping Bag Lady, and the Boy who wore Spectacles. I wish I could get a copy of all of them just to reminisce what Saturdays were all about. TV has never been the same. We need these old values back for our kids. Just like all the cartoons of this era as well. What has happened to our world when everything on TV is violent and sexually explicit? What values are we giving our children of today? We need these films back on TV and released on DVD now. If our children are our future, then this is one piece of the past we can give them to take with them in the future.
