Child of the 80's

I am a child of the 80's. VH1 can keep those I Love the 80's shows coming-even if I don't have the 3D glasses I still watch. I was all about Care Bears, Pound Purries (I was a cat person), pegging my pants, and wearing two pairs of socks at the same time (you know with black white and white black for the criss cross effect). I had a poof, wore at least two watches on each wrist and was all about everything jelly. I loved those slimey octopus things that you threw against the wall and they "walked" down (come to think of it I think they were called wall walkers), and I still cherish my Cabbage Patch Kid, Harold Vinnie. I love that they are bringing back all these toys that we used to play with. Why? Brilliant marketing plan-they got me! So if you are a child of the 80's and happened to have a TV, you may remember some of these shows. Not that we were allowed to watch that much, but there were some that I took with me. He-Man, and She-Ra, JEM, The Greatest American Hero, The Smurfs, 227, Amen, and Perfect Strangers. Are you humming their theme songs? You will if you go to this site and you can relive your TV, Movie, and commercial childhood-complete with Matt LeBlanc and the Heinz 57 Ketchup Bottle commercial. Enjoy!

I remembered Harold Vinnie's name... do you remember my CP Kid's name?

Come on... think...

In my defense, I never ever liked He-Man and She-Ra. That was *your* weird thing : )

We can be weird together, m.

I was just thinking of Perfect Strangers the other night when I saw Larry on some Friday night show with Melanie Griffith. I thought, "What happened to Balkie?"

A fun entry :)

E, I don't remember your CP kid's name. Actually, I can't even remember what he/she looked like! My CPK was Nellie, and my Pumpkin Patch Kid was Penelope. Ha, I just realized that I now associate CPK not with the dolls, but with the pizza chain.

80s nostalgia is fun. Still can't figure out what consitutes 90s nostalgia, though.

Don't worry, you weren't the only one who liked He-man and She-ra. I did too. I watched for the romance. I also watched Voltron because sometimes there was kissing. Same with Jem.
