Favourite Sci-Fi/Fantasy of your childhood: Let's reminisce!

Which sci-fi/fantasy shows/books/movies did you use to love while growing up? I remember being introduced to the genre through the Narnia-books (and later the BBC show), as well at getting scared by the spooky Eerie, Indiana and Are you afraid of the dark?

What about you?

Books: Animorphs Series. I was obsessed with them. I was in love with one of the aliens in the book.

TV: Hmm... Alf! Sailor Moon I can't think/remember any...

Movies: Star Wars! The Pagemaster

I can't remember any. And of course anything from Disney and Nickelodeon from the 90s I loved.
