Flashback Friday: Turbo-Teen
Here’s a little flashback for ya. Anybody remember Turbo-Teen? I used to love this show. It was about a teenage kid who turned into a car–kinda like Transformers, only not quite as cool. But still awesome!! And unbelievably it only ran for 1 season between 1984 and 1985.
My Dad had a routine every Saturday morning with his boys. We’d wake up and he would meet us in the living room with pillows on the floor and we’d turn on Turbo Teen, the A-Team, Transformers, etc. and watch glorious cartoons until about lunch time. Then, he’d set off with a couple of buddies from church and spend all afternoon visiting folks in their homes and sharing the Gospel. For me Turbo-Teen is an icon of an era consisting of quality time with a Dad who greatly loved his kids, and yet always found time to share the most important message the world has ever known.
