By the Powers of Grayskull!

If you’ve read this blog enough, you know my stance on commercialism and my kids.

But now that my son has outgrown ABC for Kids, he’s looking at other stations in the mornings.  And now that he’s become a little big guy, he pays close attention to everything.  Especially advertisements.

All that hard work parenting media savvy kids is disappearing fast.  It’s a whole new world now…

 

On Sunday, he asked me to show him my, ‘favourite cartoon from when you was little’.

I showed him this:

 

 

masters-of-the-universe

 

 

Anyone who attended primary school circa 1980s should be familiar.

He-Man and the Masters of the Universe went hand in hand with my morning Coco Pops.

 

 

He-Man, Skeletor and of course, She-Ra – Princess of Power.

In the afternoons, I’d lay on the lounge watching this:

And in later years, this.

 

 

Press Gang

 

TV was limited back then, but it was brilliant.

 

 

This afternoon my Mr 5 burst through the door from Kindergarten, demanded something to eat and settled tummy-down on the rug to watch Spongebob.

 

 

Mr Robo and I smiled at each other.

Old habits die hard.

 

 

Linking up with The Lounge today over at Tegan’s
