Rating Childhood TV Shows

Maya Mathew

The TV shows I watched as a child were an integral part of my childhood; they shaped my core beliefs and understanding of the world. When I reflect on my childhood, I can think of three shows I watched most frequently, which I’m going to rate with an updated perspective.


Wild Kratts ★★★★★

Wild Kratts follows two animal-loving brothers, Chris and Martin Kratt, on adventures with animals of various species. The show is somehow simultaneously entertaining and educational. In fact, several random animal facts that I learned from Wild Kratts have stuck with me today, as a high school sophomore. 


PJ Masks★★★★☆

This is one of the most engaging, yet unrealistic shows I’ve ever watched. The PJ Masks are grade-schoolers by day, superheroes by night. It’s insane to think that they never got caught as they escaped into the night to fight crime, but with unique characters and a strong plot, PJ Masks will always be one of my favorite childhood TV shows.


Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood ★★★★☆

Who would’ve thought that a TV show about a singing tiger would become a classic show watched by children of all ages? Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood shared several valuable messages with me as a child, but when I look back on the show, it was fairly repetitive. Though I wouldn’t consider it the most entertaining show, it did teach me many important life lessons.


While these TV shows had their faults, they were educational and enjoyable for children everywhere. I would consider my childhood incomplete without them.
