Humph....you wanna talk about feeling old...I remember all those things, but not because I'm a kid of the 90'*...rather because I had kids in the 90'* who did/had/watched all those. Bah!

Now....if you remember Rock-em-Sock-em Robots...then we have something to talk about!

Just because you were born in '97 doesn't mean you're a 90'* kid.

It'* not like you could remember the original Simpsons. I am sorry but three conscious years of the 90'* just wont cut it.


You're a 90'* kid if:

U remember watching Doug, Ren & Stimpy, Pinky and the Brain , and Two Stupid Dogs. All too well

You've ever ended a sentence with the word "PSYCHE!

You just cant resist finishing this... "Iiiiiiin west philladelphia born and raised..."

You remember TGIF on ABC. Step by Step, Family Matters, Dinosaurs, and Boy Meets World. All but "Boy meets world"

You remember Tuesday night was Full House night with Michelle and "You got it dude!"! "I'm Crying"

You remember when, 2Pac and Selena died.

You remember when it was actually worth getting up early
on a Saturday to watch cartoons. "LOL"

You got super excited when it was Oregon Trail day in computer class at school. "I was able to download it for Windows and it'* awesome"

You remember reading "Goosebumps" That was a popular book series

You took plastic cartoon lunch boxes to school.

You remember the craze, then the banning of slap bracelets and slam books. YUP

You still get the urge to say "NOT" after (almost) every sentence...Not...

You used to listen to the radio all day long just to record "Your FAVORITE song of ALL time" I think even that is illegal now...

Where in the world is Carmen San Diego? was both a game and a TV game show. I even remember the theme song

Captain Planet. He'* a Hero. "Gonna take pollution down to zero..." Gosh darn tree hugger

You knew that Kimberly, the pink ranger, and Tommy, the green Ranger were meant to be together. "The PR'* were not really my thing, but if y'all say so"

You remember when super nintendo'* and Sega Genisis became popular. "and when they became not so popular"

You always wanted to send in a tape to America'* Funniest Home Videos... but never taped anything funny.

You remember watching home alone 1, 2 , and 3........and tried to pull the pranks on "intruders" "I still watch Home Alone, #1 is my fav"

You remember watching The Magic School Bus, Wishbone, and Reading Rainbow on PBS. "I feel old"

You remember when Yomega Yo-Yos were cool.

You remember those Where'* Waldo books.."Oh heck yes!"

You remember the special effects on Mortal Kombat and thought they were the coolest thing ever! "The graphics were outstanding"

U remember eating Warheads.(those sour candys)

You remember watching the 1st Batman, Aladin, Ninja Turtles, and 3 Ninjas movies.

U remember Ring Pops. "The most digusting thing ever

U remember drinkin' Fruitopia and Surge.

if you memeber when every thing was "da BOMB" "There was a song about it if I remember"

when they made the new lunchables so that you could make tacos and pizza!!

You remember boom boxes vs. cd players "I had a boom box, thank you"

Writing M.A.*.H. notes. (and the twenty different versions of that)

Making those little paper fortune cookie things.. and then predicting your life with them.

You knew all the characters names and their life stories on "Saved By The Bell" "I love that theme song...it'* so 80'*"

You played and/or collected "Pogs"

You had at least one Tamagotchi, GigaPet or Nano and brought it everywhere

You haven't always had a computer, and it was cool to have the internet.

You watched the original cartoons of Rugrats, Power Rangers,and Ninja Turtles. "Yup"

You had a favorite New Kid on the block, and you knew all of there names

Yikes pencils and erasers were the stuff! "Yikes!!"

All your school supplies were "Lisa Frank" brand.(pencils.notebooks.binders.etc.)

You remember when the new Beanie Babies and talking Elmo were always sold out.

You collected those Beanie Babies.

You remember a time before the WB.

You collected all the Troll dolls

You owned a portable tape player. "A few of them"

If you even know what an original walkman is.

You remember wanting to sit on the orange Nickelodeon couch.

You've gotten creeped out by "Are You Afraid of the Dark?"

You know the Macarena by heart. "I have the music video"

You remember "American Gladiators" and watched it like a religion.

"Talk to the hand" ... enough said

You always said, "Then why don't you marry it!"

You know the significance of the number 23.

You went to McD'* to play in the playplace.

You remember playing on merry go rounds...at the play ground.



When we were younger:

Before the MySpace frenzy...

Before the Internet & text messaging...

Before Sidekicks & iPods...

Before MIKE JONES...

Before PlayStation2 or X-BOX...

Before Sponge Bob
...Back when you put off the 5 hours of homework you had every night.

When light up sneakers were cool.

When you rented VHS tapes, not DVDs.

When gas was $0.95 a gallon & Caller ID was a new thing.

When we recorded stuff on VCRs .

When we called the radio station to request songs to hear off our walkmans.

When 2Pac and Biggie where alive.

When the Chicago Bulls were the best team ever.

Way back.

when it was all about N64.

Before we realized all this would eventually disappear

Who would have thought you'd miss the 90'* so much!!!!!

You are so right!! My favorite was Gallaga. It is strange to look back to the beginning and see how gaming has changed through the years. Back in the day the cartoons were much better than they are today.
