TV and Movies·Posted on 28 Jul 202213 TV Shows From Our Childhood And Teenage Years That I Wish Would Make A ComebackI am just a bunch of character traits, attributed to the TV show characters of my formative years, glued together.by Debanjana DasBuzzFeed ContributorFacebookPinterestTwitterMailLink 1. Karishma Kaa Karishma Alliance Media & Entertainment No, I don’t want to work in an office. I want to be adopted by the family of Vikram, the scientist who created me. I want to be the designated crisis solver of my family and the exemplary well-behaved child who is always praised for her genius. Yes, I want to be like Karishma. Or maybe, I just want to have a robot girl summer as that sounds way more fascinating than just having a regular hot girl summer. 2. Son Pari Taurus Video Fruity is not a regular kid. She is a cool kid. She helps a dove escape its captors. She hangs out with a fairy called Son Pari, and, with Son Pari’s assistance, also protects her father from those who are after his money. On top of this, she is destined to kill the fairy of darkness and put an end to her legacy. They say you attract what you fear — ah, I’m so scared of a fairy godmother who will always have my back and keep me safe from the big bad world! 3. Tu Tu Main Main Prime Channel Radha and her mother-in-law, Devki, are part of a mutual adoration society. They love each other to bits but god forbid they ever get vocal about it! To protect this highly explosive information and mislead the other, they constantly engage in shouting matches. Their husbands try to intervene but to no avail. Though, as is expected, the profound fondness they share can’t always stay latent and it rears its not-so-ugly head time and again. 4. Courage the Cowardly Dog Stretch Films Hey (with the intention of stealing your dog named Courage, who, unbeknown to you, outwits nefarious forces to protect you). As a popular saying goes, "courage is not the absence of fear but the will to keep going in spite of it", and our hero doggo lives up to his name every day. According to recent studies, each of us has a Courage hidden within us. We just need to unleash him. 5. Shaka Laka Boom Boom UTV Software Communications I’m not saying that owning Sanju’s magical pencil, which brings things drawn with it to life, would fix me, but I’m just saying that we can’t rule out this possibility entirely. Were you always daydreaming about owning this pencil in your childhood or were you not normal? 6. Hannah Montana Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF It's a Laugh Productions / Via giphy.com Never ask a woman her age, a man his salary, or Miley Stewart about her secret identity as a pop singer named Hannah Montana. She confides in two of her closest friends, who go out on a limb to protect her identity. Miley also has a horse named Blue Jeans, which again is a perfectly normal name for a horse. It’s always lovely (and a little envy-inducing) to see teenagers live my dream. If only my alter egos were as exciting and financially profitable as that of Miley… 7. Desperate Housewives Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Cherry Productions / Via giphy.com Here's some unsolicited life advice: Have an affair with your gardener. Fight someone to win over your crush. Hide a prisoner in your basement. Date, albeit unknowingly, a man who has poisoned your husband. Make a move on your crush as soon as he wakes up from a coma. Fake a pregnancy. Experiment with your sexuality. Be ungovernable. Be like the desperate housewives of Wisteria Lane. You get only one life, so do what brings you joy…..or drama, if that’s your thing. 8. My So-Called Life ABC Productions Fifteen-year-old Angela Chase is a ten but as is typical among teenage girls (or women in general), she is yet to know that she is a ten. Sometimes the most humiliating thing in the world can be one’s desire and this has been portrayed through her on-and-off relationship with bad boy, Jordan Catalano. On most days she is a tangle of nerves, teenage angst, and identity crisis and on the remaining days, she tries hard to be a person. As each episode unfolds, we see Angela checking off every task of her "how-to-be-a-cool-teenager" checklist — drifting away from childhood friends, pulling away from parents, falling for a man against her best interest, and the like. 9. Dragon Tales Sony Pictures Television Injecting serotonin won’t be enough as I need to go on adventures with sibling duo, Max and Emmy, to Dragon Land. Do we really need to slave away our lives working when we can just spend time with cordial and colourful dragons instead? The siblings and the dragons together get to learn morals by embarking on exciting quests. The dragons even have cool badges that glow after they overcome their mortal fears! Whoever is in charge of the universe robbed us of a lot of joy and it’s not funny anymore. 10. Shararat UTV Software Communications Did you know that it’s actually Jiya, Radha, and Sushma’s world, and all of us are just living in it? Owing to some ancestral good deed, this holy trinity has been bestowed with magical powers. After all, why be a normie when you can be a fairy? Jiya is simp-ly in love with Dhruv, who may or may not be in love with someone else. Peppered with sugar, spice, and just the right amount of vice, this comfort show inspired us to embrace Roald Dahl’s words and start believing in magic if we truly want to find it. 11. Freaks and Geeks Apatow Productions Set in a fictional suburb of Michigan, this show depicts Lindsay Weir’s attempts at traversing along the star-mathlete-to-rebellious-teenager pipeline. She joins the “freaks”, hoping to latch onto some kind of personhood, but identities are too complex to be described by binaries. Moreover, the journey toward self-actualisation is a lengthy business, and Lindsay slowly realises that life is not about being submissive (to popular narratives) and breedable (according to social standards). 12. Daria MTV Animation Lord, the sensible teenagers you put on earth to live as the OG queens of shade, are forced to go through a cringe-horror fest, i.e. high school. Daria is teenagers. Why should she live, laugh, and love when she can be cynical and acerbic instead? The show revolves around Daria’s interactions with various suburban American cliches and high-school caricatures and her sardonic ways of unsubscribing from the basics and the plastics of the world. 13. Oswald HIT Entertainment Humanity committed a lot of wrongs, but at least, it gave us an anthropomorphic octopus, Oswald, who made being kind his full-time job. He took the wise decision of being best friends with non-humans (a penguin and a flower, to be precise). They speak the human language and do human things but unlike humans, are the least bit bothered about dividing and conquering. Oswald’s hobbies include playing the piano, looking out for his dog and friends, and in turn making his hometown, Big City, so liveable, that everyone will wish to buy a one-way ticket to it. #OswaldForPrez.
