Remember afternoons in 1st grade when you’d come home from school, have a gourmet PB&J with milk made by your in-home chef of a mom, and plop down on the couch to catch Clifford the Big Red Dog and friends in their latest neighborhood adventures? What about in 4th grade, same sandwich, same couch, but with Goosebumps playing? Those were some very fine TV-watching times.
If you’re hampering to catch some of those favorite after-school classics they’ll be easily available at your fingertips as part of The Orchard’s new deal with Scholastic Media. Next time you’re clicking around on iTunes US (ROW: they’re coming soon!) trying to find a short, entertaining tid-bit, you’ll now have the option to explore some all-time greatest kid’s TV hits. Right now, only Cliff & friends and the creepy-crawly spooky series are up for grabs, but others are soon to come, like The Magic School Bus, I Spy, The Babysitter’s Club and more.
We know the 90s kids out there are going to love this childhood throw-back, but it’s just as perfect for today’s youngsters! Planning any long road-trips for the fam in the near future? We’ve got your 3-hour beach drive covered! Your five year-old will be way too distracted by Clifford’s latest neighborhood quest to ask for a time-update, and your eleven year-old will be pinned to his tablet in the backseat, waiting for the next ghoul to pop out! That means quiet time in the front seat for you.
So whether you’re a kid at heart or you’ve got your own, you’re going to love these new (but old-school) TV options rolling out digitally. I, for one, will be jumping on The Babysitter’s Club bandwagon! For more info on all the series being released and where they’ll be available, check out our full press release here.
