Guest KING OF HELL

if memory serves correct the herculoids were the shit. Im gonna have to go out on a limb and say that old school MTV cartoon Banana man was cool too.

 

But i want to digress from the TV and move more along the lines of toys. What ever happened to kids playin outside on the slip and slide? Ohh i almost forgot about that really big round game with the 4 different colored lights on it that you have to press in a certain pattern..........SIMON.

 

The greatest cartoon ever was MASK. These fools actually had cars that

turned into cooler cars. HAHAHa

ya know, im old enough, but i didnt really watch any of those.... i dont know if it was a regional thing or what, but they certainly werent pushed in my area.

i did watch the d&d one somewhat though.

 

what about the wrestling/monster truck cartoon? it was a half our show split up into two 15 minute segments.

who the fuck decided to make a cartoon about monster trucks?

Are You a Child of the 80s?

Trapped between the "Baby Boomers" and "Generation Y" is a special generation ... a generation we call "Children of the Eighties." If you can identify with most of the 15 points below, chances are you are definitely one of them ...

 

1. You owned a *real* Rubik's cube. Still have one.

2. One word: Izod.

3. You remember when MTV didn't exist. Alternatively you remember when the M stood for Music, not Mundane.

4. "Alternative" music actually was...and not popular Top 40 tunes.

5. You were a "wanna be". Madonna, Duran Duran, Michael Jackson, Cyndi Lauper, Boy George, etc.

6. "Where's the beef?"

7. You know how to use a rotary phone.

8. Max Headroom was cool.

9. You know how (or wanted to be able) to Moonwalk!

10. Atari, IntelliVision, TelStar and Coleco were the ultimate gaming systems to own. Still have one.

11. Leg warmers and headbands alá Pat Benatar once looked really cool to you.

12. You remember when Jordache jeans with a flat-handle comb in the back pocket was cool.

13. Jelly bracelets & shoes!

14. Your hair defied gravity.

15. You are still baffled by the "day glo" clothing trend.

 

So, are you a Child of the '80s? You're facing a long uphill culture battle to stay tuned-in to that great decade, so follow our advice:

 

Never forget or deny your 80s heritage. Be sure to start most of your sentences with "Back in the 80s" or "When I was your age"...

Spend a majority of your time in your late 20s & early 30s obsessing over how much better things were "back then".

Never let them see you sweat.

^ dude! You were from London?

 

Most of my early memories (tv and media) were all about TVO.

I didn't bother to mention them because I didn't think anyone else would even understand.
