Students remember the shows that shaped their childhood.

With the release of the Jonas Brothers’ new song, Sucker, after years of separation, the upperclassmen of Midlothian began to feel nostalgic. The Jonas Brothers breached a portal to simpler times when the biggest decision ever made was which channel to watch after getting off the school bus to go home. The greatest hits include shows like Hannah Montana, Wizards of Waverly Place, Drake and Josh, Suite Life of Zach and Cody, and Spongebob Squarepants.  However, commonly forgotten programs filled the young students with joy when they came on at the time.

Memories from Elementary School:

On the trip down memory lane, many remember shows that filled their minds with cartoons and dreams of becoming an animator for Spongebob, or the shows that made them feel like adults for a moment, such as The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
