If you are 13 or under don't bother reading this.
Just because you were born in '97 doesn't mean you're a 90's kid.
It's not like you could remember the original Simpsons. I am sorry but three conscious years of the 90's just wont cut it.

The sad thing is...I remember all those things, even though they were targeted a bit too young for me:p Where's the love for The New Zoo Revue? How about the Bananna Splits? Johnny Quest?

alas, even the cable channels have given up on these gems:(

OK - Saturday Morning and the Kroft Supershow. Hair Bear Bunch, New Zoo Review (before going to school in the morning). Gumby, Underdog (What was ther name of the big blong henchman that hung out with Simon Bart Sinister?)and, of course, Rocky and Bullwinkle (world of Commander McBragg, Simon and Poindexter)

Sunday morning cartoons stunk - always would get stuck watching that Davey and Goliate claymation thing.

Zoom - Z double om, box 350 - Boston Mass - 02134

Paula and Carol in the Chucklepatch. Along with sherlock, the pink squirrel.

Wonderama with Bob McAllister - actually saw that live one time and got free Lenders Bagels!

Johnny Socko and his flying robot - followed by Ultraman and that stupid blinking light where - if it stopped blinking - would mean that Ultraman would never rise again.

Getting yelled at for playing Coleco Head-to-head football in the lunchroom. The Mattell version was more concealable.

Figuring out if you jiggled the on/off switch on the original Atari you could get double missle shots during "Space Invaders". Or that sound the game would make when you swung on the rope in "Pitfall".


OH!!- to be young again

Johnny Quest and Speed Racer and the Transformers were 3 of my favorite cartoon shows amongst others.

Goosebumps was cool and I miss ghostwriter.

That made my day, there is this new tv network that plays the oldschool stuff, and it rocks. Why just this morning I caught an episode of legends of the hidden temple. One of my favs though which is missing on the list is "Salute Your Shorts"

Well Jonny Quest has been remade a few times. The original series was great and certainly a classic still. However it was remade again in the late 80's or early 90's, when they introduced Rock, so he may be referring to the newer versions. The original versions became nearly extinct from TV, although I still have some of the originals.

Similar such old shows I used to love (though certain not the 90's) were the original Battle of the Planets (G-Force) (and not the horrid remakes that have been on in the last 5 years or so), Shogun, and even a little newer the original Staurday morning Dungfeons & Dragons Cartoon.

Oh well, I'm certainly no kid from the 90's...personally, I wasnt too thrilled with the 90's, but I still recall at least 90% of the list...haha

The theme song was the absolute best TV theme ever! I remember when I was in High School trying to get our band director to arrange it for Marching Band.

wait a minute...

I'm on an Internet forum,
for a video game,
which is based on Dungeons and Dragons,
talking nostalgicly about cartoons,
and referencing being in marching band...
I think I just won the Geek Olympics!:D

What about the old school metal ones. I had Hong Kong Phuey and my brother had Adam 12.

Ok, I know I'm off the 90s kick, but hell, I was in college already - it would be embarrasing to have first hand knowledge of those things.

Sorry, but nothing tops Looney Tunes. And I do NOT mean Tiny Toons - I mean the originals like Bugs, Daffy, Elmer, Foghorn... the gods of comedy.

I remember all those 90s shows. Saved by the Bell was always my favorite when I was growing up. However, being born in 83, and having an 80s hair metal loving mom, I grew up loving everything about the 80s more than the 90s. Both had some good stuff, but music and pop culture wise, the 80s is where its at. :p
