    I taped over most of the stuff our family taped in the 80s, but when it comes to stuff from the 90s and later, I've taped 13 Academy Awards ceremonies (I taped over two of them for various reasons). I also have every American Film Institute "100 Years..." special on tape, with the exception of "100 Years, 100 Stars". I'll be taping the next installment ("AFI's 10 Top 10";) next week.

      My favorite VHS recording we had was "The Brave Little Toaster". My mom recorded it off the Disney Channel for me when if first premiered during the summer 1987. I watched that movie like every single day for the first two months we had it...than I scaled back to watching it at least one time a week for the next few months.

        My Hocus Pocus that the tape had been recorded over so many times that there were the fuzzy lines going through the middle of the screen and sometimes it would skip
        I'm a 90's kid and proud of it!

          A tape of episodes of the Muppet Show recorded from Nickelodeon in 1994. I had more but I gave them away for something better.

            Oh gosh, for me it would be anything with nudity in it. :) Although when I think about it, after the episodes of GI Joe and Transformers, my fave has to be an old David Letterman episode that i STILL HAVE.

                We had several but unfortunately they aren't around anymoer the tapes have broken we had one that had Duck Tales, and Chip N Dale Rescue Rangers and it also had a Fairy Tail Thaetre type show on it of The Princess and the Pea. Another one had Alice in Wonderland on it from the 1908s, and another one had a mixture of old cartoons on it like My Pet Mpnster, Care Bears and The Disney Afternoon on it with lots of ohter cartoons. These two tapes don't exist either so there really isn't a VHS recording that is a favorite anymore.

                  My mother taped a Special of the Lucy-Desi Comedy hr (hosted by her daughter) which was called We Love Lucy". It was on FOX 5 (ch 5) here in NYC back in like 1987 with the commercials on that tape (Tape 1). My mother also taped on NBC 4 (ch 4) Peter Pan from the 60s from 1989 (also had AWESOME commercials) Some of the commericals are on RJ ^^ Infact, if you guys see ANY of my comments, please give me a link to the commericals from the 80s ^^
