Netflix Instant Cool TV and Movie Picks: Childhood Edition

Hey guys, Jonesy here with some childhood memories for everyone.  In a themed Netflix Edition this week, here are a few of my favorites from my childhood before the world of reality tv, the Disney Channel, and Sponge Bob (sorry I will never understand the appeal of that cartoon).

Everyone had their favorite color, mine was totally Pink, and all my friends and I loved watching our Rangers everyday as they try to defeat Rita Repulsa.  I was also so curious how these teenagers balanced fighting aliens and going to school, but some mysteries will never be answered. 

This was part of the really cool "after hours" of Nickelodeon called "Snick".  It was four extra hours of cartoons and variety shows.  RUGRATS was my favorite cartoon because it brought us insight to how babies communicated with each other.  Maybe that's a little too deep...and they were just super cute and never aged.

Thinking back on this series, I don't know how in the world this made it onto Nickelodeon's line up.  Crude, weird, and completely fits for late night Cartoon Network or Comedy Central, REN AND STIMPY follows our favorite cat and dog on their wild and very odd adventures, almost the kid's version of Beavis and Butthead.
