5 More Things You Remember From The 90sApril 03, 2013 - 7:36 am |
A while back, we brought up a few heartwarming things that you’d only remember if you grew up during the 90’s—good news, there’s more nostalgia to come! Read on and relive the best decade ever.
You Loved Home Alone
Back before Macaulay Culkin dated the hot girl from That 70's Show and developed a drug problem (really, could his life have turned out any other way?), he was an inspiration to thousands of boys in the 90s. How awesome was he, setting up traps in his house to fend off burglars? And that giant tarantula he put right on the guy's face? Move over Dennis The Menace, there was a new hero in town. Admit it. You tried making traps in your house at least once.
Playing Video Games in Pizza Parlor Arcades
Oh, sure, some arcades still exist, but nowhere near as many as there were in the 90s. If you never went to a pizza parlor with your parents, begged them for a handful of quarters, and went to play Street Fighter 2 in the arcade, you should be pissed off at your parents for letting you miss out on this intregal part of being a 90's kid. Those of you who did have this opportunity can probably still fondly remember the feeling of a greasy joystick in their hands. Wait. You know, for the video games.
Every Friday You Watched TGIF
The only fond memory of anything ABC ever put on television, for a lot of kids who grew up in the 90's, was the Friday night lineup of TV shows: TGIF. How simple it was to kick back and watch Urkel's antics or an episode of Boy Meets World.
Buffy Made You Feel Funny
Oh, Buffy. You didn't just slay vampires, you gave millions of 90's kids boners for the first time. Truly an admirable service.
You Found Waldo
You had to have had at least a few Where's Waldo books. And by God, you'd spend hours pouring over each of the pictures to find that elusive bastard. “This is him, right? Moooom, this is Waldo, right?” And then your mom would come look with a magnifying glass and confirm that you found him. Nostalgia. Overload.
