Kids in the 80's

TV was fantastic for kids in the 80's. I'm not even touching the amazing number of excellent cartoons we had, either. Live action was it.

We had Johnny Depp as a cop on 21 Jumpstreet (1987-1991)

We learned the Facts Of Life with Nacy McKeon and Kim Fields (1979-1988). I think this is where we first met Arnold from Diff'rent Strokes too.

Survived Growing Pains with Kirk Cameron (1985-1992)

And then we endured a Full House with his sister, Candace Cameron (this info courtesy of Laura and Bob Saget. (1987-1995)

More to come next week!

@ Marsha, sorry! We had holidays here, and I was vegging out. I have to try to be better about posting. Who knew people would miss me? :O

@ Jon Paul, are you crazy? Of course, there's A-Team. They were in the Crime shows post.
