I'm in particular looking for something for the tween age. I decided to post here because I really loathe the lot of shows aimed at tweens that seem to center around life at public school every day and make school look like a big fest of glamourous clothes and dating, so I'm avoiding most of those Disney one (I've peeked around). Right now this one dd of mine likes Little House on the Prairie and Alf, and we end up having little kids stuff like PBS cartoons on a lot, and of course watch nature shows and pbs all the time, but she's been asking wistfully why there aren't weekly shows for kids her age. I think she's hoping for something where there are characters that she can follow and get wrapped up in week to week...I campaigned hard for her to like watching the network show "Once Upon A Time" with me, which I would love, but she watched a few and decided it was too scary.
Any recommendations would be awesome!
