Do you remember pt. 1

I love to be nostalgic. I have a soft spot for toys and shows from my childhood. I'm sure most people do actually. So, not alone there.

One of my pastimes, sometimes, is to search out for those things on the Internet and take a leisurely stroll down memory lane. As I walk along I can see Care Bears playing in the distant forest of Tootsie Pop trees. Fat Albert and his gang are doing picture pages with Bill Cosby over in McDonald Land. I could go on, but I'll save it for parts 2, 3, and how ever many I want to do.

Do you remember the show on Disney Chanel {back when it was a pay channel} called the Edison Twins? I loved that show! I had such a crush on the male twin. I don't remember a whole lot, just that they solved cases using science. They had a pesky little brother too. The theme song was what I remembered most. I came across this while rooting around You Tube yesterday.


It seems like most of my favorite shows were Canadian. I think that might just be the subject of part two.

Thank you for reading my indulgent puff piece of a post. Feel free to reminisce in the comments.

I remember that show! In particular an episode that explained the physics behind how ice skates worked (btw, they compress the ice and create a small film of water that the metal of the skate glides across). I remember being annoyed by the little brother too.

I don't remember that show Heidi. I also like to go back in time. I took it for granted.

Oh MY GOODNESS!!!!!!!!!!!!
I remember ALL that stuff, including the Edison Twins! =) i miss lots and lots from "the good old days" when, according to my daughter, dinosaurs roamed the earth. though she's digging SOME stuff from when I was a kid (like Chuck Taylor low-tops. she absolutely can't get enough! and old cartoons from retrojunk.com---if you haven't found that site yet, RUN THERE QUICKLY! they even have old commercials like kool-aid, say no to drugs...this is your brain on drugs..., blow-pop, BONKERS!!!!)
do you remember the show called the polkadot door? probably canadian since it was a PBS show. what about pinwheel? i can still hear that theme song EVERYtime i see a pinwheel without fail! OH do i miss smurfs...could've swore one of the gals at volleyball last night was wearing a papa smurf t-shirt (was wrong it was a polar ice-jump t-shirt. was disappointing). do you remember silver spoons? my older sis was SOOOO in love with that show, hence a lot of stuff i recall, people my age haven't a clue on. P.S. you're welcome on posting about Elder Scott's talk. it was a good one & yes, i copy & pasted it all from my lesson i'd typed up & presented. have a great thursday!

I had completly forgotten about The Edison Twins. Of course I still don't remember anything specific, just that there was once a show called the Edison Twins.
