The good old days

This post ended up a little different than I originally intended thanks to youtube, but I'll explain later.



Yesterday I found what has to be one of the best blogs ever. It started when I discovered that Scholastic is re-releasing some of the Baby-Sitters Club books, which got me all excited because I loved those books when I was younger and when I was in 4th grade the girls in my class had this huge fight over them because half of us liked them and half of us didn't and.... um yeah. Anyways, someone posted the link to this blog:


And it's fantastic! It's a blog dedicated to snarking about the hilarious 80s clothes that are described in every single book! And it's rather scary because half of the things they wore are now for sale at American Apparel or Urban Outfitters! And Claudia was my favorite and I loved her clothes and I wanted to be her, only I was too afraid to actually wear anything she did, but I loved it anyway. And why didn't I think of this? So I spent about 3 hours last night reading the archives and laughing myself into an asthma attack (like Abby would have. She had asthma, remember? Sheesh.)

I decided I had to share this gem, so I spent a half hour on Google looking at images of the book covers and then I found THIS:





AHAHAHAHA and the best part is, I TOTALLY remember watching this when I was little, and watching the clips now, wow that acting is terrible. And then, thanks to the related videos, I found this:





Which I also loved, although Alex didn't really have cool clothes, just cool super powers. Clarissa, however, had awesome clothes and her best friend got to climb up a ladder into her bedroom and he was a boy which I thought was the coolest thing ever as a 10 year old (or however old I was)





Seeing all these old tv shows I used to love got me to spend about another hour on youtube finding the openings to other shows I loved. Instead of posting all of them here, I'll just list some for nostalgia's sake.
  • Doug
  • Pete and Pete
  • All That
  • Hey Dude
  • Boy Meets World (although my favorite ones were the later episodes when they were in college. Those were the funniest and in my opinion, the best)
  • What Would You Do?
  • Sabrina The Teenage Witch (although I was a little older when this one aired, I think)
  • Legends of the Hidden Temple
  • Bill Nye the Science Guy
  • Ghostwriter
And I know there are more, but those are all I can remember. Can we bring back 90s Nickelodeon tv? Pretty please?!

Wow, I haven't thought about any of these things in ages. I want to be a kid again!!!

What were some of your favorite shows growing up?

  1. OMG. The BSC.

    I didn't watch any TV shows growing up. My parents kept me locked in a dungeon.
