Yes, I'm ripping off this idea from the "You must be old if..." thread. Even if you're not a so-called "90s kid", you can still pitch in with what you remember from the '90s.

So here we go!

Someone in your house has said, "Get off the phone, I need to get on the internet." Or you picked up the phone only to realize that someone's on the internet.
Your first CD was either Britney Spears', Backstreet Boys', N*Sync's, or Christina Aguilera's first album*.
You have ended a sentence with "NOT!"
You have seen movie previews that begin or end with "Coming soon to DVD and Video".

*Mine was Britney Spears' "...Baby One More Time".

What's "all that"? My favorite shows are the 90s Disney shows, though, like DuckTales and TaleSpin.

Wow, I didn't realize that it ran until 2005.

How about if you think Batman the animated Series is the definitive Batman.

*You remember when it was actually worth getting up early on a Saturday to watch cartoons.

*You wore a ponytail on the side of your head and had scrunchies.

*You remember reading "Goosebumps".

*You know the profound meaning of "Wax on, wax off".

*You have pondered why Smurfette was the only female smurf.

*You took plastic cartoon lunch boxes to school.

*You remember the craze then the banning of yo-yo's.

*You still get the urge to say "NOT" after (almost) every sentence...Not...

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

*You had at least one GigaPet or Nano and brought it everywhere.

*You watched the ORIGINAL Care Bears, My Little Pony, and Ninja Turtles

*Yikes pencils and rubbers were the ****.

*You remember when the new Beanie Babies were always sold out.

*You used to wear those stick on earings, not only on your ears, but at the corners of your eyes.

*You've gotten creeped out by "Are You Afraid of the Dark?"

*You thought it would be so cool to be Alex Mack.

*You know the Macarena by heart.

*Talk to the hand" ... enough said.

Well, I wasn't watching Nickelodeon unless "Rugrats", "Hey, Arnold", or "Aaah! Real Monsters" was on. My older brother and I were avid channel-flippers so I had my favorites on Disney and Cartoon Network as well.

I think that you're either thinking of "Guts" or "Double Dare".

Double Dare? There was also Legend of the Hidden Temple. And Guts.

I just googled it, and the show I was thinking of was called "Wild and Crazy Kids". Nick had a lot of shows like that in the 90's I guess.

Yea, I watched all those shows. Cartoon Network was my favorite though. The WB had lots of good cartoons back then too.

I always relate Seinfeld to everyday life! I can't go a day without doing it. Something happens and I go, "Hey, remember that episode..?" to the closest person to me, and then I get disappointed when they don't watch Seinfeld so instead I go on talking to myself about the episode. Also, with everyday weird stuff that isn't in a Seinfeld episode, I always have to blurt out, "That should've been an episode!".

I loved Pinky and the Brain. Also, CatDog. I remember vividly a night when I was about two and I saw an episode about Cavity Crunch. I watched the episode and wanted it so bad, and I kept watching it over and over all night and crying to my parents that I needed Cavity Crunch! They kept showing me Captain Crunch and saying it's the same thing, and they even explained how it was supposed to be a fake CatDog version of Captain Crunch, but I wouldn't take it, I didn't understand at all how my parents couldn't possibly grasp my urgent need of Cavity Crunch and how it was not Captain Crunch at all, it was Cavity Crunch, and I figured they must have been death or losing their minds to not see the difference between the two. It was hilarious, I remember for weeks I had to walk very slowly in the cereal aisles to make absolutely sure that my Cavity Crunch wasn't there.

I also watched Hey, Arnold and Rugrats. I loved playing Rugrats on the Playstation, I still had that game until a few months ago, when I lost the Playstation 1 in the move.

I loved Hey, Arnold, but I wasn't allowed to watch it suddenly in my childhood. I came home and my dad said it was bad and that I couldn't watch it anymore. I think it had something to do with politics or something, but I never found out the reason.

Lol, I'm glad I'm not the only one. Even when I find people in real life that watch Seinfeld, they've never seen any of the good episodes that I'm thinking of at the moment, or they haven't seen enough episodes to understand that it's "a show about nothing" and don't get how little everyday things could possibly make a good tv episode when I try to explain it to them.

Yep, you either love it or hate it. I know a lot of people who just don't "get it". I've seen every episode, and I have them all on DVD.

Yeah, my mom and dad love the show, they introduced me to it, but the rest of my family, who are all into most of the same comedy movies and things, still don't get Seinfeld and won't watch it. I used to have all the episodes, but my dad took them when we moved because we mixed up the dvds and didn't realize it until we'd already moved. I've always wanted the little puffy shirt that comes with some of the seasons, though (I think 5 & 6). I ask for it every year for Christmas and my mom always assumes I'll forget about it, but I really love the puffy shirt. If I don't get it this year I'll just save up money and buy it and the rest of the seasons myself, because I want to see all the extras and interviews, too.

Heck yes. Plucky was the best character. Animaniacs was good too although oldly I didn't really appreciate it when I was younger. I always liked Slappy the Squirrel and Pinky and the Brain though. I saw an Animaniacs Star Trek parody on youtube the other day that was really funny. "Be a little more careful with my log up there!" lol

I'm one of those people.

As for Catdog, I always wanted to like that show (I actually had a similar idea for a catdog-like character when I was younger but abandoned it because I thought it made no sense. How would they go to the bathroom?) but could never really get into it because of all the Cat bashing. That always really annoyed me.

Ugh, Ren and Stimpy was way too disgusting for my refined pre-adolescent sensibilities. But the rest of them were cool!

I liked Ren and Stimpy when I was younger, but I agree that it was pretty gross. I prefer Rocko's Modern Life. It was gross sometimes too, but most of the time it was really funny. This is my favorite Rocko moment ever.
