    So glad that this whole 80's Nostalgia thing is reaching the end. I can stop hearing about how the Transformers cartoon was The Odyssey of the modern era.

    The end of the 80's revival just means the 90's is around the corner, and fuck that.

    When I was little I wasn't into "boy stuff" (Transformers, Power Rangers, etc) but oh man did I love that Ferngully. I was basically born an eco-weenie.


    And all the Disney movies, in their 90's heyday. I would see every one of them in theaters, with my best friend Katie, and then we would go out for pancakes at IHOP, and there would be something beautifully sad about watching the rain drip down the IHOP windows while the pop-styled end credits were still playing in our heads. Disney movies really got to me back then.

    woah, someone mentioned the lost cities of gold? That was on back when I was like, 8 or so. I remember because I accidentally woke up at 6 in the morning or something and there it was, being all confusing to my tender brainmeats. I honestly thought I'd just dreamed up the whole show, glad to see it really existed. And as for David the Gnome, hell, who doesn't love lawn decorations smoking pipes on nick jr, back before there was a dedicated network for it. Being sick, home from school, watching random little kids cartoons because you're waiting for Ren and Stimpy to come on was awesome!

    Who's man enough to admit they watched this once or twice when they were little? I had a reason; I had a crush on the neighbour girl.

    That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

    Magic School Bus was kick ass.

    Was Lizzie the one who always said that catchphrase when things went wrong?

    What did she say? "Oh man, oh man, oh man?" Something.

    Wishbone was goddamn fantastic.

    I had a lot of the books. They split off into a bunch of different ones. They had the originals that were half and half, then the ones that were all in the real world, ones that were all in the book world. And maybe some others I forget.

    I only watched Arthur because there was not much else to do at the time.

    Animorphs was also awesome.

    Wrong order - Transformers was The Iliad, Beast Wars The Odyssey, and the Michael Bay movies are The Aeneid - glorified fanfic with a heavy dose of propaganda.

    Colonialism in general. Mostly the 19th century colonial enterprises, so post-Haitian independence.
