Take Me Back To The 90s

How many of you are 80s babies? How many of you are 90s kids? I’m both! I was recently thinking back about cartoons of the 90s. When I was a kid my television was basically stuck on Nickelodeon. OMG, so many entertaining shows to watch; so many good memories. My favorite show happened to be “Space Cases”, which is where my love for Science Fiction originated. If you don’t remember “Space Cases” is because it only lasted about two seasons. It was a show about a couple of teenagers from different planets; including Earth and Saturn, two Earth instructors, and a robot named Rosie living on a ship in space. One recognizable character of the show was Walter Jones aka Black Ranger from the original “Mighty Morphing Power Rangers”; another favorite show of mine. He played Harlan Band from Earth.

I really miss 90s cartoons honestly. Another cartoon I watched was Doug. Yes, Doug was annoying as hell and a straight nutter but nevertheless, it was a very entertaining show. I liked the fact that they used different colors to represent the children. Which is so needed now, but that’s another post. How about the “Magic School Bus”, you cannot tell me that show wasn’t the stuff, lol. Just thinking about it now makes me smile. You actually learned something from that show. Where is that now? Well, I don’t know because the only cartoon I watch now is “Courage the Cowardly Dog” and all I can watch are season 1 reruns because the show was canned and they haven’t put seasons 2 and 3 on DVD. I encourage anyone to give it a glance, even if it’s one episode, you might like it.

I feel very fortunate to have grown up in the 90s because 90s television was great. I’ve tried watching someone of the stuff they have on now but it just doesn’t compare; maybe because I am an old fart, lol. Not really! Here’s my list:

  1. The 90s decade is our “golden age,” for sure! I can only watch cartoon reruns that used to air during that time. Woody Woodpecker, Tom and Jerry, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Garfield & Friends. We also would watch Speed Racer, Captain Planet and the Hurricanes Sunday mornings.

    And not just the cartoons. I used to live for TGIF on ABC Friday nights—Family Matters, Dinosaurs, Boy Meets World, Full House. Then there was All That and My Brother and Me on Nickolodeon.

    Also listening to 90s music just takes me back.

    The 90s were the best.
