Seinfeld was the only sitcom I ever watched regularly.

Pretty much your list. But I would add Silver Spoons. I always wanted a train in my living room. I guess we just dated ourselves.

Allie's avatar

Fresh Prince of Bel-Air!
I liked Clarissa Explains It All (does that even count) and Saved By The Bell, too.

babygalll's avatar

How could I forget Silver Spoons! Also, have to add Three’s Company to my list.

Dare I say Full House?

Allie's avatar

crunchaweezy: You dare. I liked it also.

jrpowell's avatar

Hell yeah.. Three’s Company too. Roseanne was also pretty big back then. It was the first sit-com I remember that exposed the dysfunctional family. It was like my house with better jokes.

Fresh Prince, Saved by the Bell, Friends (uhh define childhood?), Cosby Show, Bewitched, I Dream Of Jeanie, Who’s the Boss, 3’s Company, probably 10 more.

Allie's avatar

I watched I Love Lucy re-runs, too.

some are from my era, but others were from an older generation, which were my dads beta tapes.

fresh prince
full house
sanford and son
cosby show—(i used to understand it, but now i dont)
reba—now i hate it
seinfeld is my ultra-favorite
oh, and this may no apply to childhood, but frasier is growing on me, and it is very underrated.

Don’t forget Family Ties!

AstroChuck's avatar

God, you guys make me feel old. I liked Green Acres, Bewitched and I Dream of Jeanie. Also Sanford and Son and Chico and the Man. Bob Newhart and The Mary Tyler Moore Show. Man, I watched way too much TV!

jlm11f's avatar

i mentioned bewitched and jeanie!!

ava's avatar

I think you guys forgot about Small Wonder with Vikki the robot girl!!! That was my fave!

Mtl_zack's avatar

maybe the jetsons and the flintstones can count because its about a dysfuntional family, usually involving a room where theres a tv and a couch facing each other, and a coffee table in between.

AstroChuck's avatar

@PnL- Yeah, but I wasn’t watching reruns.

El_Cadejo's avatar

Seinfeld. It is the only show that in pretty much any situation that comes up i can say “remember that episode of sienfeld there they were in this same situation”.

esayexohen's avatar

I grew up watching Gilligan’s Island re-runs. But I grew up with Saved By the Bell. Now, since every showing of it is a marathon, I watch Fresh Prince.

But seriously, what’s with Roseanne and the Fresh Prince constantly being on at like 7 episodes at a time? I mean don’t get me wrong, I love em both, but what about all the other great sitcom re-runs they can be showing…......

babygalll's avatar

Yes, Small Wonder! Also,

Mr. Belvedere.
Rags to Riches
Wonder Years
Doogie Howser M.D.

sndfreQ's avatar

Different Strokes, Married With Children, Seinfeld.

ljs22's avatar

Golden Girls

ava's avatar

Mr. Belvedere!!!!! Hahaha! Yes! I had the biggest crush on Wesley! I wonder where he is now!

jrpowell's avatar

Actually, The Wonder Years was probably my favorite. Oh, Winnie Cooper, the crush I had on you.

Allie's avatar

JP: I saw a girl that looked just like Winnie Cooper at the tattoo shop the other day.

elchoopanebre's avatar


The show about nothing.

ccatron's avatar

Perfect Strangers
Night Court
Golden Girls
Newhart (hi i’m larry, this is my brother darrell and my other brother darrell)
Kate and Allie

babygalll's avatar

jenni's avatar

Fresh Prince F Belair has to be the best child sitcom ! Will smith is the best !! =0

tinyfaery's avatar

Let’s not forget Out Of This World with Evie, the half alien girl who could stop time. I also liked What’s Happening, Give Me a Break, and Munsters reruns. Man I watched a lot of TV.

rone2002's avatar

MacGyver, A-team, Moon Lighting, Family Matters, Webster, Punky Bruster, Who’s the Boss, Aman, 227, Different World, Alice. Hogans Heros

GracieT's avatar

It’s interesting how many people mentioned Seinfeld. That’s the one I remember despising. I don’t know why I hated it, I just did. The ones that I remember loving were mostly hour long or cartoons, and seemed to be ones I watched in college:
Star-Trek the Next Generation
Northern Exposure (Not quite as funny in reruns!)
A-Team, and Tiny Toon Adventures.
