TV Shows That Made My Childhood

Recently with a certain 90s pop band reforming on Children In Need I was having a think about a certain TV show *cough*Miami 7*cough* from my childhood and suddenly a whole list of TV shows which I grew up with filled my mind! 
Shows that I would run home from school so I wouldn't miss, stay up way too late on a school night to watch and WISH that I was in!

Most of these probably were on our screens between 1997-2003ish and most of them are kids shows but there are a few other classics thrown in there too!
 Let me know in the comments below which ones you watched too - I was obsessed with all of these!

1. Maid Marion And Her Merry Men - The best kids show of the 90s in my opinion, hilarious with some great songs! #pancakeday
2. Aquila - 2 boys find a invisible spaceship, one of them gets a reptile hand... ring a bell?
3. Jeopardy - This actually used to scare me! Scottish kids getting abducted by aliens in the outback and nothing making sense!
4. The Queen's Nose - Probably my first TV obsession... I called my hamster Monty just because Harmony did and who can forget Uncle Ginger?
5. Byker Grove - Soooo much better than Grange Hill, I always used to want a geordie accent!
6. Sister Sister - 'never knew how much I missed ya!'
7. Kenan & Kel - WHOOOOO loves orange soda? and who put the screw in the tuna?
8. Sabrina The Teenage Witch - Every girl wanted the power to change her outfit instantly!
9. Student Bodies - A mix between a high school drama and a cartoon - I loved this show about kids writing the school newpaper!
10. The Generation Game - A CUDDLY TOY!
11. Gladiators - Who didn't love this on a Saturday night, Wolf was always my favourite!
12. Blind Date - I'm sure as a kid I didn't get any of the innuendo's but I bloddy loved Cilla and her match-making skills! 
13. Baywatch - Drama on a beach, can't go wrong with a bit of lifeguarding action!
14. The Moment Of Truth - Another Cilla show where a member of a family had to perform a certain skill in order to win prizes for the whole family, I loved this!
15. Albert The Fifth Musketeer - This cartoon used to crack me up I loved the song!
16. Bad Girls - The best prison drama ever (although I do love OITNB), this show was awesome!
17. Footballers Wives - Obsessed didn't explain it - this show was EVERYONE'S favourite, I'll never forget the ridiculous storylines! And you can watch them on youtube -perfect!
18. Noel's House Party - Mr. Blobby and gang always had the best Saturday nights!
19. Changing Rooms - is it bad that I used to love it when the people hated their new room?!
20. Home On Their Own - The kids version of changing rooms, siblings that turned their kitchen's into burger bars and their bedrooms into jungles, I always always soso jealous!
21. Fun House - If you have't seen this then get on youtube now, they don't make kids shows like this anymore!
22. The Crystal Maze - This was always so stressful to watch!
23. Robot Wars - Yes I'm a huge tomboy but I LOVED this show!
24.  Ocean Odyssey - Do anyone of you remember this? An underwater community and a girl who lived on an island on her own and swam and talked to whales?
25. The Demon Headmaster - Brilliant and terrifying, I will never forget watching these for the first time!
26. The Ghost Hunter - That cute little cockney shoe shine boy and the crazy old lady who trapped ghosts in glass jars!
27. 50/50 - Everyone wanted their school to go on this show!
28. Clarissa Explains It All - The first proper American teen show I started watching.
29. Miami 7/Hollywood 7/ LA 7- The birth of S Club 7 and my love for them. REACH.
30. Little House On The Prairie - An old classic, I used to love watching this with my Mum.
31. Animorphs - Remember the kids that could turn into animals? And th creepy slug things that crawled into people's ears... I think this is where my fear of leeches comes from!
32. Through The Dragons Eye - For years I didn't know what this was called and always tried to explain it to people! The weirdest education programme ever - that bad crow man Charn was terrifying! This was totally brilliant, probably the first show I actually remember, it first came out the year before I was born! (check it out here)
33. Noah's Ark - The polar bear and all his mates!
34. Live & Kicking - I definitely called into this show more than once.
35. Recess - One word - SCANDALOUS.
36. The Animals Of Farthing Wood - 90s kids will all know this one.
37. Eerie Indiana - This was a strange strange show but I remember really enjoying it!
38. So Little Time - Mary-Kate or Ashley, I just wanted to be one of them!
39. Bodger And Badger - MASHED POTATO.
40. The Secret World Of Alex Mack - Basically it was Bianca from 10 Things I HAte About You after a werid chemical thing. 
41. The Worst Witch - Mildred Hubble and Nancy from Hollyoaks getting into trouble constantly.
42. Popstars The Rivals - Those younguns nowadays don't understand where Cheryl came from... I was totally and utterly hooked by this show - Nicola Roberts was my favourite! Girls Aloud for life! and who can forget THIS moment.
43. The New Adventures Of Superman - BBC2 totally rocked when this was on after Neighbours had finished on BBC1. Everyones favourite evening show in the 90s!
44. Dawson's Creek - Watching teenage drama that I was sometimes to young to understand was my fav hobby.
45. The Genie From Down Under - Who remember this?! I've only just thought about it, it rocked!
46. The Racoons - Best theme tune ever. Don't believe me? --- Proof.

48. Dick And Dom In Da Bungalow - BOGEYYYYSSSS. Massive lols. (click here)
49. Fame Academy - I can't be the only one who had a crush on David Sneddon?
50. The Wild House - Natalie Wild and her crazy family, I was so sad when this ended.
