Anyone Watch this? It used to be one of my favorites shows when it was shown on Fox back when I was a kid.

Oddly enough, I just remembered it yesterday. (Well, it wasn't that odd.)

...A long time ago, I used to wake up early every sunday morning to watch my favorite show. Then, one fine sunday, half asleep I turn on the TV to find that it's been replaced by Around the Twist. I waited, patiently, finishing Around the Twist and assuming that my show would come on next...

I just saw the wunderpants episode today after many years. Every episode is weird but they happen to make it so great. Makers of Round the twist, I owe it to you to buy the DVDs.

As an Australian that grew up in the 90's, Paul Jennings was THE staple of children's literature. Around the Twist is my childhood. ;_; I miss it so much.

I know this feeling. Still, I've seen every episode thanks to them using it for after-school filler for so long. I enjoyed reading Jennings, but this show just had a nasty vibe that still leaves a bad taste in my mouth. Particularly later in the run when they'd completely run out of material, when they had to make up new stuff (after using up all the happy stories and then moving onto all the nasty and depressing/melancholy ones, so the late-show original material tended to be nasty/depressing and sub-par).
