Listmania! TV’s Ten Most Memorable Child Actors

Sunday, January 20th, 2008

The criteria? Simple.

They had to be on television and they had to be under 18 at the beginning of the series. Much to my dismay, this kicked Sally Field as Gidget right out of the running.

Punky Brewster

Soleil Moon Frye- Punky Brewster

People either loved her or hated her, but either way she managed to etch herself into the American consciousness.

Doogie Howser

Neil Patrick Harris- Dougie Howser, M.D.

A doctor who is going through puberty equals hit show. Why exactly, I’m not sure.  But it did.

Frankie Muniz

Frankie Muniz- Malcolm in the Middle

The brilliant, beleaguered Malcom played the quintessential middle child in a hilariously dysfunctional family. 

Fred Savage

Fred Savage- The Wonder Years

If you didn’t root for him to get together with Winnie, then you simply have no soul.

Danny Bonaduce

Danny Bonaduce- The Partridge Family

Even though nobody had posters up in their rooms of Danny, we all remember him better than that Cassidy guy.

To see who rounds out the list….

19 Questions To Be Answered From All Over The World


One of the experiences I’ve found enjoyable about blogging is all of the people I’ve met online that live all over the globe. It is easy to overlook the distance that separates us.

People as individuals are already so unique, so different from one another ~ no two are the same. Add to this the various customs, languages and cultural differences, coming to the computer to blog or to visit other blogs has been like partaking in a colorful carnival of events, personalities and cultures on a daily basis.

Whether we’re simply blogging or actually visiting another’s home country, paying attention to customs and cultural differences can provide those outside that culture a better chance of assimilation and acceptance.

It is important to be aware of stereotypes, and know that they are often wrong.

I came up with 19 Questions. Some of these are areas where I’ve noticed differences. Most countries I don’t have any idea what their answers could be but would love to discover more about.

When country men and women share their answers here, I suspect many of the responses might surprise us.

A variety of people from each country providing input is best on some of these below questions in order to represent a more balanced view. So if someone has already responded to a question representing your country, please feel free to provide your own input as well.

Answer them all, or take your pick; please encourage others to join in!

Click onward to answer. I’m working through the 19 Questions right now.
