There's nothing like coming home from school, abandoning your shoes and backpack and hopping on the couch to watch your favorite after school show. You might even have time to grab a snack while the commercials are running. Let's face it; everyone needs to relax and unwind. School is just as stressful and draining as a full-time job, and we're all ready to chill after a long day, that's for sure. While after school programming has evolved quite a bit over the last few decades, we are still given what we need to unwind: snot, slapstick comedy and hilarious moments with our favorite characters (who are a little "off" in many ways).
Everyone has their very own chill routine after a long day, and a large part of that routine probably includes finding the perfect show that helps you to relax. No matter what you watch, your loyalties most likely lie with one channel or the other (whether you know it or not). We bet we can figure out which station that is. Are you a Disney kid who loves family comedies and incredibly developed animated characters? Or are you a Nickelodeon kid who's into wildly creative animation and over the top humor? Answer these questions, and we'll tell you exactly where you belong.
