Saturday Morning Cartoons

I'm totally showing my age on this one.  My sister told me she mentioned this to a 26 year old coworker and they had no idea what she was talking about. 

I have to tell you what my husband found on TV  yesterday and that my oldest child is now obsessed with.

I walked in the door and Olivia just about knocked me over, so excited to show me what she was watching.  "Look, Momma!  It's your favorite show from when you were a little girl!"

I do have to admit that I'm a little giddy over it.  She's right, it was my favorite show.  You might be able to say that I had a slight obsession.  I remember winning a prize at church once and being asked what I wanted.  This is what I got:

Forget Barbie.  The Jem doll was totally cooler.  I just showed that to Olivia and she's begging me for one.  I wonder if I could find one on ebay.... hmmm.

I got up before the rest of the chickens today and curled up on the couch for one of my absolutely favorite activities - dozing under a blankie.  Olivia got up, claimed a spot next to me under the blanket and located the Jem episode Bill DVR'd.  So we got to sit and watch Jem together all cuddled up.  I thought it was the coolest thing ever.  =)  And, as far as retro cartoons go (my childhood is "retro"?  boo), I thought it was far less annoying as other cartoons I used to watch.  I mean, it's still a big ball of cheese, but I didn't cringe once. 

I told Olivia that her Daddy had set the TV to record more Jem shows for her and she literally did a happy dance.  That's my girl.  =)  Oh, and we may have found our Halloween costumes.  How cute would some little tiny Jem and the Holograms be?


  1. Jem is truly outrageous. Truly truly truly outrageous! Am I a total nerd because that popped in my head the minute I started reading your post??? How fun to share with your daughter! What channel is she on?

  2. Oh my god, I remember Jem! I had cassettes of her songs!

  3. WOO HOO!!! Thanks for the Jem-Info! We get the Hub here and I'm LOVING it!
