I grew up in the 80's but I'm drawing a blank on much of this, must be all the drugs back when the universe meant something.

And don't go making fun of the plastic streamers on my handle bars :p

Grew up in the late 70's, came of age in the 80's (graduated in '85), so I remember the trends in the list and cartoons, but wasn't involved..........not ! Psyke !

Finally had to throw the Atari away, quit operating. I remember paying a quarter to play pong in the skating rink. I was there when heavy metal blew up (Metallica, Motley Crue, Testament, Exodus, Iron Maiden, etc.). Mullets, sleeveless t-shirts, checkered Vans slip-ons....

Whew ! Glad I'm past that. Now I'm waiting to see what the fun stuff will be when my kids are teens....

hey I remember that stuff

MouthfulOfGrass 01-25-2007 06:39 PM

Oh, c'mon, Johnny Quest was NOT good. Hated that cartoon, the spider-like thing in the opening credits really creeped me out.

How about Sigmund the Sea Monster, or H.R.Puff-n-stuff ?
