Are You Afraid of the Dark? is the only show from my childhood that is still good

Did you ever think that something was so awesome when you were a kid and still imagine that it is so awesome? Well, usually it’s not so great anymore.  Take Alvin & the Chipmunks—I can’t believe I really sat through all that chirping in those tiny voices.  And Scooby Doo—they barely could color in the lines and Mama Cass made a cameo as a poorly-drawn character.  Really?  Watching all of this stuff as an adult made me doubt my ‘90’s kid self's good judgment.
