Adam - "I didn't sit inside all day watching tv. I was outside building forts, riding bikes and hanging out with the neighborhood kids."
Me - "Oh, puuuleeease! Well, probably because you didn't have cable." HA!
I didn't sit in front of the tv all day either, but I'm also not going to pretend like I didn't watch tv when I was a kid like some people (ADAM!) I had cable, and it just may or may not have been illegal satellite (don't judge me - that falls on my parents' heads, not mine!).
90s Nickelodeon was a-maz-ing! Looking back, most of the shows were simply kid versions of popular adult shows. It so funny how the mind works. I remember all the following details simply from memory. (Sometimes, I even impress myself!)
Clarissa Explains It AllOh Melissa Joan Hart. How cool was she - seriously! Clarissa had the coolest outfits, and her best friend/hottie, Sean, came and went as he pleased by climbing a ladder up to her bedroom window. She also had an annoying little red headed brother named Ferguson. (I may or may not of had an annoying little red headed sister to deal with myself.....)
Salute Your ShortsAll I remember is the song, "Camp Anawanna, we hold you in our hearts. And when we think about you, it makes me wanna FART!" and the fat guy everyone called Donkey Lips.
*Kid version of SNL. I thought it was SO funny!
Are You Afraid of the Dark?Let's not even kid. This show scared the heck out of me! I couldn't watch it when I was home alone. *Kid version of Tales from the Crypt.
GUTSI loved all the kid game shows on Nickelodeon like Legends of the Hidden Temple and Double Dare, but my all time favorite was GUTS! Oh my goodness, I wanted to be on GUTS so bad! I just knew I would dominate, especially that huge mountain at the end. There was usually always two boy contestants and one girl (typical!). And sadly enough, a boy usually won. But I just knew, if given the chance, I could represent for the girls (Girl Power, Wut!) *Kid version of American Gladiators.
"They just don't make good tv like that anymore....."
