"Are you ready, kids?! Aye, aye, Captain! I can't hear you!"
If you finished off this quote, you're ready for this quiz! Regardless of whether you were a child 10, 20, or 30+ years ago, there's a huge chance you've spent some of your free time watching a few kids' TV shows. Just how much were you paying attention?
When you were a child, you probably woke up every Saturday morning hoping to watch your favorite cartoon. Especially popular during the '90s, channels like PBS aired children's shows that were both fun and educational. You might remember receiving a science lesson from Ms. Frizzle or learning what an aardvark was.
If you weren't a PBS fan, you were more than likely binge-watching cartoons on Nickelodeon. Beginning in the early '90s, the popular children's network starting airing favorites like "Doug," "Rugrats," and "Hey Arnold!" The channel would go on to include fan favorites such as "Dora, the Explorer" and the smash hit, "Spongebob Squarepants."
These cartoons may be after your time, so there's a chance you're a bigger fan of Oscar, the Grouch versus Squidward Tentacles. The longest-running children's TV series, "Sesame Street," was introduced to children in 1969 with famous characters like Elmo, Big Bird, and the Cookie Monster.
From Elmo to Tommy Pickles to Arthur Reed, how well do you know the most popular TV shows of children's past? What color shirt did Steve from Blue's Clues wear? What kind of fruit did Spongebob live in? What pet animal did Dora have?
We're traveling back in time and keeping ourselves young! Let's see if you have what it takes to outsmart these kids' shows!
