"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

    Believe it or not, I cannot say that I had any favorite TV show when I was a kid. I was the youngest and they almost forget to ask me for my opinion. xD Mostly, my older brother choose and we just set silently and watch with him.

    Sad but true. Lol

    Oh, I'm sorry to hear that @Bell ! I hope that your older siblings (and particularly your older brother) chose shows to watch that were a little bit interesting for you at least! :# This is one of the negatives of being the youngest!

    My favorite tv show is doraemon. It is from Japan. I still like it even though i am not a kid anymore. I like it because the story is simple but good enough to increase the kid's imagination. Also it is inserted kindness lesson how to be a good kid. I just like it.
