I was trying to think of good Halloween viewing to show my kids when I remembered that I have a catalogue of every. single. episode. of Big Wolf on Campus. HaaaaaaHAHAHAAAAAHAHAAAAA.


I want to entertain and enlighten them, not traumatize them.


(Honestly, it's such a failure every time I pick out a video clip because so much of it fails to translate, and usually only a tiny percentage of that is due to the language barrier. Pop culture is hard.)

Your icon is KILLING ME!

LOL I used to watch big wolf on campus, what a heap of sillyness it was!

I hope you manage to find a few clips that DO translate well enough :)

I think for me, the most embarrassing thing about my BWoC love is that, yes, I did watch it as a child, but it didn't leave that big of an impression on me -- it was until I rediscovered it in college that I fully appreciated what an intricately crafted piece of cultural satire it truly was. WHY IS IT THAT BRAINLESS KIDS SHOWS RESONATE WITH ME MORE AS AN ADULT. WHAT IS WRONG WITH MY BRAIN.

Anyway, I spared my students... how kind of me! And I didn't end up showing any videos because the internet wasn't working properly in my classroom, booooo, so instead we just listened to the Ghostbusters theme song (of course!) and ate candy.

Heh, I used to catch those on TV from time to time. (Or maybe that was Teen Wolf on Campus?) Somewhat naff but amusing.

What! I didn't even know that Teen Wolf on Campus was a thing. Now I'm curious. Anyway, BWoC is one of those shows that is so perfectly suited to my interests and sensibilities that I have a hard time believing that it is reality and not just something plucked directly from my own brain.
