I hated this show lol

 

My childhood was dominated by Batman and to a lower extent, Superman and DB/DBZ.

Two of the figures that have influenced me the most, apart from my parents and family ofc, are Batman and Superman. I've always been disappointed in people I've looked up to at one point or another, which, while not ruining what they did, pollutes my memories of them. Being fictional Superheroes, these two represent something that people strive for. Superman represents purity of the heart and unconditional altruism. Batman represents the peak of human capability and overcoming whatever hurdles are thrown at you.

 

And, ofc:

Pretty much in chronological order, nostalgic stand-outs:

You'd trust me with your life then. I still have them packed away somewhere. American, Russian, German, Japanese, Chinese armies with tanks, airplanes, barbwire fences, military bases etc. I loved army men toys as a kid.

hell yeah.

now for the million-dollar question; did you also have these... ?

Oh sh*t. I can't believe I forgot about those book fairs. I remember how excited I'd get when the teacher announced that they were having one. And I'd always head straight for the Goosebumps section. Those fairs were also where I could procure a jumbo pencil. I always felt like a badass doing my classwork with one of those.

My favorite part of book fair's was getting those massive sport athlete posters haha .. I remember having one of Emmitt Smith and Troy Aikman, then yes, of course Goosebumps.. RL Stine was the sh*t. I even remember watching the Goosebumps shows/tv movies back in the day. 

 

Not to mention Ghost Writer

No. I could never find anyone selling them. I did find a few that some unfortunate kids lost while playing outside. And because I had a lot of robots and other futuristic toys as well, and lots of magnets (I freakin' love magnets) the natrual thing to do was to explore the idea of time travel.

I preferred this poster over the Farrah Fawcett poster.

Still one of the best kids tv shows. I tried watching some of the more recent ones and they just suck. This was full of great morale lessons and movie parodies.

lol trip, I just pictured you as a kid pushing around a tire with a stick. My parents always talk of their childhood days and that was one of their favorite things to do. :p

 

I had the old Farrah Fawcett poster, I'm sure it was a reprint.. but it was nice! Got me through my puberty days 

 

@Deeper, yeah, I enjoyed Recess as well.. and Rugrats.

I remember the Duck Tales NES game. I was going to post it in my top 5 games in that other topic....

 

My brother and I were probably 6 and 8 when I got a NES. We couldn't figure out how to pogo stick and had massive tantrums because we couldn't pass the first level. My Dad read the instruction booklet when we went to bed that night and solved the issue.

 

He reminds me of this story EVERY SINGLE TIME I get a new PC/PS3 game.

She was f*cking beautiful even during 09. God must'a worked overtime.

sh*t I almost forgot about those. They were the sh*t in my town when I was like 5. EVERYONE had one of those. EVERYONE. I think mine's still back in my hometown in my old house.

They were the sh*t though. I remember getting one, they were pretty cool to just piss around with at the back of the classroom.

 

Metal Gear Solid (original) and Crash Bandicoot were my favourite video games. I was doomed to be addicted to Metal Gear Solid ever since the day my dad got me a Playstation 1 and MGS to go with it.

 

I'm surprised Ed, Edd & Eddy haven't been mentioned (unless I've missed it). Y'all must remember that show!

Only 00s kids get dis. :p

 

I hated most of the songs in the game at the time, but now they make me feel warm inside. :)

Also Hamtaro. I can't watch the show without cringing anymore, but any images from the show are great.

 

 

And the hamster dance, which played a lot on a kid's XM radio station I listened to in the early 2000s. This music video for a remix of the song by the Cuban Boys reminds me of my childhood (I was a watermelon by the way.) (https://www.youtube....h?v=fXJ5oaU940U)
