See if you can name these popular children's TV shows from the 1980s

Just remember: "I don't know" will get you slimed.

Odds are, you grew up watching Sesame Street, Captain Kangaroo or Mister Rogers' Neighborhood. Those children's programs aired for decades.

But there are some kids' shows more specific to Generation X. Nickelodeon launched in the late 1970s, and throughout the Eighties became the after-school (and before school) TV destination for American youth. Of course, PBS was still churning out educational gems. 

We've picked through our memories for some favorite shows of the 1980s. See if you can come up with the correct titles! Good luck!
