The Lady and the Tramp: I remember that!

This weekend, my eight-year-old niece, Jasmine, asked me to buy her a DVD of the classic Disney film, The Lady and the Tramp. Without asking how much the price tag on the DVD read, I told her yes, being that movie was one of my favorite when I was her age. I was delighted to have the chance to bring the classic home with me.

This weekend, my three nieces watched the animated film almost a dozen times. I guess they love it as much as I did. Well, as much as I still do...

You see, I still remember what Lady and her doggy boyfriend looks like. I still remember the creepy, siamese cats. I still remember the romantic spaghetti dinner that was enjoyed by the canine lovers. Listening to the movie was like watching it all over again. And even though it's been 25 years, the images are still fresh.

Here are some other movies and shows that the kids like to watch that I remember seeing with my own eyes.
The Smurfs
Scooby Doo
The Jetsons
The Flintstones
The Fox and the Hound
Mickey Mouse
My Little Pony

Jasmine is always shocked and tickled pink when I tell her that those shows were once my favorite when I was her age. I wonder what classic animated show and/or film will be recycled next.

Have a fantastic week!
