Throwback Thursday Passover Edition-A Rugrats Passover (1995)

There is something about a holiday special that is done right. If it is well balanced with tradition and family without being too schmaltzy, it can last years, if not generations.

Back in 1995, A Rugrats Passover aired. It tells the Passover story as only the Rugrats can. In a nutshell, the children are told the story by Grandpa Boris. As the tale begins, Tommy imagines himself as Moses and Angelica as Pharaoh.

When it initially aired, I was not the target audience. But looking back, I can see why this episode is as beloved as it is. It is charming, funny and talks directly to the children watching as only a program of this nature can.

I recommend it.

Throwback Thursday- Hogan Knows Best (2005-2007)

Do parents always know what is best? That question has been posed in many ways over the years.

Hogan Knows Best aired on VH1 from 2005-2007. This reality show followed the personal and professional life of wrestling superstar Hulk Hogan and his family.

As a reality show, it was the standard celebrity-based program. While other programs of this nature were somewhat compelling, this program was just plain dumb. I have to admit that I did watch it, but looking back, I wish I hadn’t.

Do I recommend it? Not really.
