First of all, Tommy was never the red ranger. He started out as the green ranger, then turned into the white ranger. Jeez. Jason was the first red ranger.

08-04-2007, 12:40 AM

I miss Wonka's Neon Nerds, and Super Sour Dweebs!!

08-04-2007, 12:45 AM
I can relate to most stuff, but the candy and shows are new to me.

Tis true, though. My sis and I used to act out the Rangers in our living room. I always chose the Yellow one, she had the coolest robot. And outfit.

08-04-2007, 12:50 AM

Oh man, I actually remember the most of these. Some of them might be too british or too old, haha. I remember everything that's from 1994 and later :icon_lol:

08-04-2007, 08:46 PM
Remember how badass TGIF was in the states? Maybe in other countries too, I dunno. But when I would hear the Theme song start for Boy Meets World, I would get chills. Not really, but TGIF was so awesome.

One time they played Family Matters in 3-D and it was AWESOME! URKEL REACHED OUT AT THE SCREEN AND TRIED TO GRAB ME. I WAS LITERALLY ROFLMAO. And you had to get the shitty glasses from Wendy's. And you had to eat a shitty frosty for them. Just to be faux-groped by the Urk.

09-04-2007, 02:40 PM
shit i can actually relate to all of those but one...the hair band with my name on it.

And the Power Rangers were awesome...i still have the movie on tape somewhere...

09-04-2007, 04:09 PM

True, but around that time I lived in the States, so a good number of that stuff was there.

I was always Pink Ranger when we'd play Power Rangers in my front yard.

You did that, too? Somehow I feel less embarrassed.

11-04-2007, 02:08 AM
You know you grew up in the nineties when you were born in the late eighties.

11-04-2007, 02:29 AM
You did that, too? Somehow I feel less embarrassed.

Wait...that you played Power Rangers or that you were the pink one too?

You remember back in the day when michael jacksons music was cool
If you grew up in the '90s, this is unpossible! Michael Jackson ceased being cool in the 1980s. Thriller was the high water mark and Bad was his last hurrah...1983 and 1989, respectively.

I once was an audience person for that, lol, I remmebr we had to dance around to Dixie Chicks and I hated them so I didn't dance and this peron grabbed my arms n started making me do this wierd shake dance, cos it looked bad and random to stand there, lol.

OMG, I went to the shops the other day, I saw a Panda Pop, its freakin 40p!, and its in some cheap different shaped bottle.

I remember every lunchtime, Panda Pops were 25p! Cola was the best, (I'm a Coke person). I really didn't see the fuss about Strawberry Jelly & Ice Cream flavour.

Power Rangers were gay. Captain Planet kicked their ass.

Thunder Cats were better! The old Transformers were also wicked.

The action scenes in the movie looks great!
