Boomerang


Okay, we have this Boomerang tv station here. Kyle and Jake love it and beg for it everyday! The funny thing, is that the shows that are on it, are old school cartoons from when we grew up. Examples: Pink Panther (animated), The Snorks, Yogi Bear, Rocky and Bullwinkle, The Chipmunks, and The Smurfs. I went to pick up a babysitter the other night. She got here and the kids were watching the Smurfs, and she asked "What are you watching?" I was shocked she had no clue what it was. (In my opinion, the Smurfs Christmas Special is still the best). I told her it was a "safe" show. (I had just finished telling her what shows the kids aren't allowed to watch...)Crazy, huh? Well, after church today, I noticed that the movie "Jack and the Beanstalk" was on Boomerang. I thought it would be a cute little show for them to watch while we got dinner on the table. (Thinking it was the Mickey Mouse one). Well, I was wrong. It was from the early 70's. They LOVED it. Here is a picture of all 3 kids intently watching the worst rendition of Jack and the Beanstalk known to man. It was probably the first time they tried to do animation along with normal people, and it was terrible. I normally holler at them to scoot back from the TV, cause they sit too close, but I wanted to take a picture...

I love all those shows...when I was in high school and smurfs wasn't on anymore, I saw on the TV guide that it was coming back, but at 4 in the morning. I used to get up on my summer break and watch it. What a weirdo! How awesome they were all being so good TOGETHER!!
