Every once in a while before bed, the kids and I look at funny cartoons or music videos on you tube. A few weeks ago Aaron and I were reminiscing about cartoons we watched as kids. For shits and giggles we pulled up "He-Man".
That caught Braden's eye pretty quick.
weekend Aaron found a double DVD with a total of 14 or so episodes of
"He-Man". Guess what we did all day Saturday? You guessed it. The four
of us sat there for hours watching He-Man.
The next day, Sunday, I had to work. Aaron found a movie online with both He-Man AND She-Ra. Sweet!
came home from work that day to find out Mackenzie had left a few hours
previous. In her place was "She-Wa, Pwincess O' Powrrrr!"
this past week has been sword fighting (Funny, I don't recall the
"real" She-Ra and He-Man sibling duo duking it out with their
swords...), begging and pleading to get another cat so we can name it
"Cringer", and more begging and pleading for a "Horse with wings, just
Mackenzie is still going strong. I called her over to me and this is how it went -
Me - "Mackenzie, come see mommy please"
Kenzie - (Mortified) "I am NOT KENZIE! I am She-Ra, Princess Of POWER, Mommy!"
Me - "Oh. Sorry honey. She-Ra, please come here for a minute"
Kenzie - "Okay Mommy. I comin."
She gets pretty ripped off when I call her brother "Braden".
This usually happens in the car on the way to school
Kenzie - "Hims is He-Man, mommy! Not 'Baden'! Right 'Baden'??"
Braden - (Big sigh) "Mackenzie, I don't want to play right now."
Kenzie - "Yes you DOOOOOO!! You is the He-Man and I. Is. Your. Sister. She-RAAAAA!!"
- (Rolling his eyes) No Kenzie. I can only be the Master Of the
Universe On the weekends. I have to go to school and He-Man is too old
The kicker? The other kids at daycare have no clue
what Kenzie is talking about and think she's nuts. I can't believe
their parents haven't subjected them to early 80's cartoons!! I mean,
Come ON, People!!
The boys in Braden's class beg me everyday
after school to come over so they can watch this mysterious "Master"
wielding a sword while wearing a fur trimmed speedo.
I like it. No, not the fur trimmed speedo. I like that my kids love a corny little show that I
used to race home from school to watch everyday when I was 7. Not quite
a classic like "Tom & Jerry" or "The Bugs Bunny ans Tweety Show",
but a classic nonetheless.
What favourite shows did you watch that aren't played on TV anymore?
