Also, TGIF then original SNICK. Was there for the very first airing of Are You Afraid of The Dark, loved it until the very last episode.

Man, I had a great childhood.

I knew about three quarters of that, but I guess is too US based for everything to be relevant to me. (I`m from NZ)

I`m a 90`s kid and although some are relevant, most are moreUS based. Forexample `American Gladiators` in the Uk it is jsut called Gladiators as that is where it is orginally made.

I was a kid of the 80`s, so I can`t decipher the code to figure out what a kid of the 90`s would know. I suppose a kid of the 90`s would be able to read the code. All I saw was "fatal error"

As a kid, did anyone else ever get one of those MASSIVE f**king jawbreakers that were literally the size of your hand and suck on it for weeks?

I`d have to agree with the other posters at the jump. A number of these things were things kids raised in the 70`s, who were teenagers in the 80`s, were experiencing. And a number of things the posters were bringing up were also first seen in the 80`s; although they might have carried into the 90`s. What this really says is that the 90`s were even more lame than the 80`s if you have to feel like you need to identify with the two decades prior.

"You thought you could climb the Agrocrag faster than any of the kids on GUTS"

Laughed so hard at that!

I like to consider myself half 90`s half 00`s, b/c I was born mid-90`s, so a few of these applied to me.

About Goosebumps and Are You Afraid of the Dark: does anyone remember the show Scaredy Camp? It was like Nickelodeon`s next attepmt at a scary show.

Lol we had at least half of those in England. Did you guys ever get teletubbies?

It was Philadelphia, born and raised
On a playground was where I spent most of my days
Chilling out, maxing, relaxing or cooling or shooting some B-ball outside the school.
When a couple of guys who were up to no good,
Started making trouble in my neighbourhood.
I got in one little fight and my mom got scared and said
"You`re going to you Aunty and Uncle`s in Belair"
So I whistled for a cab and when it came near
I saw the license plate said Fresh and it had dice in the mirror,
If anything I could say that this cab was rare,
But I thought "na, forget it. Yo home, to Belair!"
I pulled up to the house about seven or eight,
And I yelled to the cabbie "Yo home! Smell you later!".
I looked at my kingdom, I was finally there
To sit on my throne as the Prince of Belair.

And I remember here they distributed Surge to a few schools to see how kids would like it... it was horrid.. I still like the snap bracelets though... they`re fun to hit people with

I was born in 90 so It could be like early 90 but..

Some of those are too USA specific for me, but the Fresh Prince Lyrics, jelly shoes, Gladiators,slap bracelets, tape in the stereo (top 40 radio 1 on Sunday =D) brought back fond memories. There was never any competition between Hammer and Vanilla Ice (i had someone at school make me some Hammer trousers). They missed Salt n Pepper (Spindarella pump it up one time), TLC & SWV. And for UKers you would have to include The Word >.<
