ok, i can see from the rest of it that these people are just not real competant with the whole written-english thing, but still, it has possibilites.

of course, i absolutely refuse to listen to the music - the racket you kids listen to!

and man, i am so old, i remember captain kangaroo.

vaguely. as much as i can remember anything at my age.

i watched most of those and the intros like woke up a dead part of my brain.
when i was younger i pretty much watched nickolodeon all day. the intro to hey dude scared me a little because i had no memory of it until right now. and i still get pumped when i see the xmen thing.

my reaction to most of those clips is the same that you described with the elephant show.

its strange to me that something that was a part of my world everysingle day is locked somewhere in the gray matter and only partially awokened by this sort of stuff.

I luckily have a shitload of VHS tapes of this stuff. And damnit, I still have my Lite-Brite! Sure it doesn't work, but it's in the fucking garage!

There was a time when I would rub noses with my mom when she tucked me in. All because of David the Gnome. And for four Halloweens in a row I dressed up as a ninja turtle. First was raphael, then michelangelo, donatello, and leonardo. I vaguely remember being disappointed when my mom told me that the turtles' names were based on the four artists... and not the other way around.

RoboCop had 56k of RAM if I remember correctly.

Anyway, you can all sod off. Only me, Halen, Tom and Fris are allowed to reminisce like this.

And Laz. But Laz can only reminsce about Penny off of Inspector Gadget.

My youngest was going on the other night about her childhood is now "retro". Hell, I was seven years old when "Sesame Street" first aired in 1969, 11 when KISS's first album was released and 29 when Pam Anderson got her boobs done the first time.

I agree with Taylorbell - you little whippersnappers aren't old enough to gripe about your childhoods being "retro", because that would make mine "antique". Very Happy

I wonder how many forum members don't?

More relevant, I wonder what % of forum festers have never known a world w/o the simpsons? Or even better what % have never lived in a worlds w/o the simpsons? Wink

Simpsons debut was 1988, wasn't it? So not many. Better to ask, how many of us were born remember the Simpsons before it was good.

Or, is Flight Of The Navigator retro or cutting edge?

Haven't you heard? Retro is actually the new cutting edge.

Flight of The Navigator is badass regardless.

You're so old fashioned. Everything cutting edge is retro. For now.

I was born both after the fall of the Berlin Wall and the debut of the Simpsons.

Yyyyyyyeah.

It's kind of weird realizing that some of today's teenagers were born when you were a teenager.

(ie. 15 year olds of today were born when I was 15.)
