saturday mornings...

...there's nothin' like them. when i was a kid, they included sleeping in, soaking up as much tv as possible, and likely watching "Jem" or "Fraggle Rock" with my sisters. so, naturally, i still enjoy watching saturday morning kids shows with the girls...but can only handle so much dora, diego, mickey mouse clubhouse, here's a few suggestions that are quite the fresh breath of couch potato air:

is a website with lots of unique music videos for kids. This is what they say..."Discover great independent music for kids. We hand pick the good won't find Barney here." This is one of my favorite videos (and Ellie's:):

Yes, that is Lisa Loeb and yes, she is threatening to buy a a fol-de-rol-dy, til-de-tol-dy, seek-a-double, use-a-cause-a, roll...whatever that may be.

And, you must head on over to Jelly Telly for some hilarious puppetry by Phil Vischer (the original creator of the Veggie Tales). You can watch a new episode every day and a movie each week, for free!

Thanks for the info. Jenn. I'll have to show the kids. Did you know that you can now get Fraggle Rock on Video? Yup, that's right. The kids aren't too keen on it. Guess you had to grow up on it. ;)
