    I was born and 1985 so I only lived in the 80's for five years. My earliest TV memories from the 80's are of PeeWee's Playhouse, Care Bears, G.I. Joe, Muppet Babies, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Simpsons, and Bucky 'O Hare.

    He-man, Transformers, TMNT, Duck Tales and shit like that. Those were the days of GOOD cartoons. Cartoons sucked ever since 1994.

    Huh, I'm the child of 90's, but I was born in Russia... So a lot of movies and shows you remembered were new for my family in 90's. It looks strange now - Russia got all the movie stuff at the same time with America. But I watched "My little Pony" or "Transformers" in 1995-1998 and thought "Wow, beautiful new cartoons! Cool."
    You can come out. Or we'll send a dragon for you. Or maybe a princess.

    I wasn't around in the 90's. I was born in 1993, but I saw old reruns of Pee Wee's Playhouse, and I used to love that show!
