If your a 90's kid how much do you remember?

Anybody under the age of 13 should not read this, and if you do, you should not repost this.

Just because you were born in '98 doesn't mean you're a 90's kid.

It's not like you could remember the original Simpsons. I am sorry but three conscious years of the 90's just wont cut it.

You knew that Kimberly, the pink ranger, and Tommy, the green ranger, were meant to be together.

You remember when Super Nintendos and Sega Genisis became popular.

When the Chicago Bulls were the best team ever.

Way back.

When it was all about N64.


Before we realized all this would eventually disappear.

    anyway i was born in '88 so this would be for me.

    -yes..but boy how i hated that song!

    -Doug, yes plenty on Saturday Mornings. Pinky and the Brain some. i know what Ren & Stimpy is but i never watched it cuz we didnt have cable back then. and i have no idea what Two Stupid Dogs is

    -that was on Nick..couldnt watch it. but i had the Super NES video game (i look back on those days and i think boy that game was stupid)

    -no..hardly ever

    -not in the mood to..but i know the theme. ehh what the heck? im bored. "on the playground is where i spent most of my days. chilling out maxing all cool. when a couple of guys who were up to no good started making trouble in my neighborhood. i got in one little fight and my mom got scared, said youre moving with your auntie and uncle in Belair. i whistled for a cab and when it came near..the license plate was fresh and it had dice in the mirror. if anything i could say this cab was rare but i thought eh forget it. yo home to Belair!..*Will is driven to the house* i pulled up to the house about 7 or 8 and i told the cabbie yo homes smell ya later. looked at my kingdom i was finally there to sit on my throne as the prince of Belair. *theme song ends with him knocking on the door*" i dont watch it anymore but yeah i have a pretty good memory

    -oh yes i remember TGIF all too well *sniffs and sheds a little tear* RIP TGIF! we'll never forget you.

    haha! but seriously i really do miss those days sometimes. Step by Step..wasnt interested at the time but i watch it now some days. Family Matters? oh yeah i watched that all the time..as soon as Steve came on i made sure to never miss an eppy. Dinosaurs? no but i had one tape of an episode and watched it like maybe once. Boy Meets World? i seen practically all the younger episodes (when Topanga and Cory were really dating..about junior or senior year)..that was part of TGIF after a while. im starting to watch the older ones nowadays.

    -no whos Selena? Tupac i never paied attention to

    -oh yeah..definitely loved all those cartoons on ABC. the cartoons now are mostly trash.

    -um yeah sorta..i dont think we did Reader Rabbit though.

    -no..i didnt read those until way later

    -sometimes yes

    -huh? i still dont know what those are

    -no i only said it once in a while

    -oh yeah i remember Rock Paper Scissors..but we didnt really do bubble gum at my school (elementary or middle) i know what it is though. ive never heard of the 3rd

    -again a game i didnt learn til i was a little too old to play


    -everyone did do more for their parents at that decade huh?and um yeah i guess you could say i was more obedient at that time..although i still had some behavior problems (i think it was because of the issues we had at home..with my father and that kind of thing)

    -no but i did listen to the radio alot

    -vaguely remember the tv show..never played the game

    -thats a commercial right?

    -i did watch that show when i was little but i never payed attention to the...uh..romance

    -yes definitely. i used to play Super NES all the time when i wasnt playing outside. it was my fav. indoor activity.

    -a little tiny urge to do that..yes. i want to do it now more than ever for the new Home Videos show

    -not the 3rd one..i didnt get to watch that until i was older. started watching after the new millenium. but i watched the 1st and 2nd quite a few times. and no i never thought to pull the pranks.

    -oh yeah! those shows were the best..Reading Rainbow was ok, a little boring. hardly watched it since i already knew how to read (and well i might add) Magic School Bus was good. and Wishbone was THE dog! i loved that..all the time. i cant believe the dog died years ago and thats why they never continued the show. it only lasted a few yrs cuz of that. i seriously think they should show Wishbone still..kids today need stuff like that. noone ever reads anymore. Wishbone was how i got into reading

    -what kind of yoyos? *confused*

    -yes..loved those. still have one now

    -no i hate those fighting games so i dont know anything about that

    -in school we always had computers of course..but those werent that good. i didnt get to play with a home computer til '98. through that time id be on the net and was so amazed with it. there was this one kids site id always go to..oh gosh now i cant remember the name! but it was the coolest. got a code for a new feature or something w/ it on snack labels. it had like customizable characters for your profile person..where you could change all parts of the body and make it as weird as you want it. ah now i remember, it was mama something.

    -no but i did hear of that phrase


    -yes i was pretty active as a kid


    -i didnt even know what Myspace was until a few yrs ago..so yeah i never even heard of it b4.

    -yes..recently got my first cell phone and my mom got hers not too long ago too..and like i said no computer til 98 so i did what kids today should do, play outside alot. some kids are lazy these days sadly

    -yes..dont you people still do that? thats the only way me and my mom record stuff. i think i do it more now then we did back in those days..my mom was a recording queen then too though

    -no i never liked talking on the phone...sortof a phoneaphobic. but i guess that was more of an in thing back then

    -sports suck! so i didnt pay attention

    -yes..but again didnt get that til way later

    -remind me why i got those later in life and not now..i got em after the fad was over.

    -yes i bet we all thought all of this would be loved forever..we never expected all that stuff to be a fad. i always thought Furbys would last forever and with some other stuff i thought that too

    -i dont really miss those times because my childhood was hectic..with my parents fighting all the time. thats the main reason why i went outside alot. and i only had one playmate so i didnt have much of a social life. my Lhasa Apso mix dog was my best friend and him i do really miss... so that was the good part about my childhood

    but i love 90s music. its my favorite decade for that.

    Source(s): kids today need those wholesome 90s cartoons instead of those news ones out now..and Wishbone they need Wishbone..and the music was soo much better! gosh wouldnt the world be better if it could be like that all the time?

    Baby!! I am 24 so I remember the 90's better than the 80's. I loved the pop culture of my time. I actually miss the simplicity of being a kid. I miss my light up sneakers. I love Oregon Trail. I was in love with New Kids On The Block. I always wanted to get slimed on the orange couch.

    Dude I am sooo a 90's kid. I miss it so much. Everything you said I can relate to...its funny but nice when we look back on it. The 90's was a good time, chilled out, fun, no stress, just relaxing. No war or terrorism bull shi t. I think I speak for everyone when I say "The 90's were DA BOMB"

    Source(s): I miss saturday morning cartoons.
