Chances are, PBS kids shows were a part of your childhood whether you’re a 1970s baby, grew up in the 1980s, or were a youngster in the 1990s.
I personally enjoyed PBS children’s programming from the 1980s into the 1990s — though I recall some 1970s-vintage PBS kids TV shows that continued to air into the following decade. If you’ve seen another post of mine, 42 Classic Old School Sesame Street Videos, then you’ve probably guessed by this point that I was a PBS kid.
While the hands of time moved forward, many great PBS kids shows hit the chopping block and now only live on in the memories of 20-, 30-, and 40-somethings. Many of these shows also have (thankfully) ended up on YouTube.
