    Well, sorry to burst your bubble, but I'm pretty sure everyone already hated paladins by then ... which is why they made Eric the whiner.

    For kicks, watch this B-rate movie that is actually pretty funny if you know RPGs and the RPG experience: THE GAMERS: DORKNESS RISING (2006)

    (Yes, the paladin jokes continue unabated in that movie.)

    Occasionally I'll go back and look at the cartoons I loved as a kid. Objectively most of them were bad, but I love them anyway. The one exception is the Super Friends. I knew that was bad even as a kid, but that was part of the charm.
    SuperFriends was horrible, but I loved it too. (I remember watching it back-to-back with Shazam and Isis and the Hour of Power or something.) The public service messages by Batman and Supes were hilarious.

    I lived in Germany when I was a young kid, on a U.S. Army base, so the only TV shows (in English) I had access to were on one channel: "AFN" or the "Armed Forces Network." So, I ended up watching stuff that was a decade before my time, but I didn't care, it was still new to me.

    1. Looney Tunes
    2. Gilligan's Island
    3. Bewitched
    4. I Dream of Jeannie
    5. Leave it to Beaver

    LOL, ok you got me. But this is what I tell my friend when he asks why everyone treats his Paladin like crap.

    That movie is hilarious. They also have an older movie simply called THE GAMERS. (2002)

    I LOVED Schoolhouse Rock, but I'm not sure if it counts as a TV show. My favorites were the ones on Electricity and Interjections.

    I bet he bought that too! Stupit paladints!

    I didn't see that one, but I laughed a lot at the full-length one. So much of that reflected my gaming experience...

    "Figure 8" had a beautiful Si-melancholy to it, but lots of those original songs (not the ones they did years later) just had some great turns of phrases.

    I still remember, "He was a hairy bear / He was a scary bear / We beat a hasty retreat from his lair... and described him with adjectives" and "Interplanet Janet, she's a galaxy girl / A solar system Ms from a future world / She travels like a rocket with her comet team / And there's never been a planet Janet hasn't seen."

    Of course poor Pluto got cut since then, ruining the song...

    There were so many! A few:

    Square One TV
    Dumbo's Circus
    Roseanne
    Full House
    Three's Company
    Murphy Brown (which I loved at the time it originally aired, but was too young to appreciate.)
    All of the stuff that was on Nick at Nite in the late 80s-early 90s, like Get Smart and Green Acres.
    Murphy Brown: What is it with us? Why can't we take the easy road once in awhile?
    Avery Brown: Because it's boring and dishonest and uncomfortable, like wearing a pair of shoes all day that pinch your feet.

    I was a big Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan
    WWF
    Glowworms
    Tiny Tunes

    I loved gameshows as a kid

    Scrabble
    The 25,000 pyramid
    The Price is Right

    I remember when I was over my baby sitter's before I was in school- and she'd watch soap operas. BOOOORING!!

    It's all coming back to me now! And there were so many different animated Whammys! I guess I was supposed to feel bad for the people who were losing, but the Whammys were awesome!
