Like many places around the world, TV shows in Egypt played an integral part in every 90s kid's life. 

We learned, we laughed, and we spent good times with our families watching some of what are now seen as local classics. 

Here are 5 of the nation's most loved series from back in the day. Do check them out for a healthy dose of nostalgia.
