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.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br>
So here we go!<br><br>
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.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/brood.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":brood:"><br>
Your first CD was either Britney Spears', Backstreet Boys', N*Sync's, or Christina Aguilera's first album*.<br>
You have ended a sentence with "NOT!"<br>
You have seen movie previews that begin or end with "Coming soon to DVD and Video".<br><br>
*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. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

How about if you think <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batman:_The_Animated_Series" target="_blank">Batman the animated Series</a> is the definitive Batman.

I remember them. I also remember that one show where groups of kids were divided into teams (blue team, red team, etc.) and had all kinds of crazy competitions. I don't remember what it was called though. That show was actually really entertaining. (at least I thought so at the time)

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".

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.<br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

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. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"> 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!".<br><br>
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 <i>not</i> Captain Crunch at all, it was <i>Cavity</i> Crunch, and I figured they must have been death or losing their minds to not see the difference between the two. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"> 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.<br><br>
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.
