7 Kids' Shows That Are Totally Helpful for Smart College Students

Saturday morning cartoons go from guilty pleasure to learning opportunity with these kids shows that are actually helpful for college students.

Homework puts you to sleep, books take too long to read, and class material is too dry-how else can a college student learn? Take a TV break! These seven kids' shows will help you relax and learn something new at the same time:

If you don't catch the Cold War references or altered fairy tales, check out the "Mr. Know-It All" segment for practical life lessons (with a twist).

2. Sesame Street

You already know your numbers and alphabet-but Sesame Street also serves up vocabulary lessons, celebrity appearances, TV parodies, and catchy songs.

3. Zoboomafoo

Claymation and a talking lemur for the kids, and useful wildlife facts for you.

You'll learn about the human body, space, ecology, and more-all with Ms. Frizzle's infectious personality.

5. Mister Rogers' Neighborhood

This show teaches all the soft skills and life lessons that college students need: kindness, community involvement, and how to be yourself. You might also tour a factory or learn a new recipe.
