On 21st and 22nd November 1996, the UN held a television forum to discuss the role television plays in keeping us informed of everything happening in the world, besides also providing us with entertainment. Later, in December of the same year, they declared 21st November as World Television Day. On the occasion of World Television Day, we asked some members of the Tinkle team about the TV shows they loved watching as kids. Here is what they said! Achachan: “Before going to bed, my sister and I were allowed one hour of TV. So every day, for years, between 7 and 8 p.m., we would watch one episode of The New Scooby-Doo Movies (that had guest stars like the Harlem Globetrotters and Batman!) followed by half an hour of Popeye cartoons. But on weekends, I would secretly wake up at 5 a.m. and watch cartoons like Tom and Jerry, The Flintstones and Huckleberry Hound, and so much more! I would keep the volume low so my parents wouldn’t know, and sneak back to my bed later so that I could pretend to be sleeping the whole time!”...
