    To me i think the early 90s where the best time for being a kid. I can remember being 10 years old-13 year old and to me this was the best times. You have good cartoons and good movies and life was not as it is today. lol but now iam 30 years going on 31 years old and i stil feel like a kid inside...ha
    As we age our body ages but being a kid at heart never ages.

    I really like the early 90's culture, particularly the music and the cartoons. My favorite cartoon was King Arthur and the Knights of Justice.

    I was born in 90 and I have to say, the 90's were the best time of my life. The 90's were a worry-free, fun time.

    I think every generation feels the same way about their childhood. I liked the 80s and the 90s. The clothing in the 90s was better and you started feeling a sense of modernization. Many stores started changing their decor and logos to match the times. Electronics and car started losing their boxy look. In other words the 70s hung around well into the 80s in many ways.

    I'm with you there! The late 90s were good too, but not as good.

    I was 10 in 1990 and remembered my teenhood in the 90's and it was a great time to be a teenager.

    Well I can honestly say that the 00s sucked to be a teen, except for the early part of it.

    I do recall the early-mid 90s even though I was a very young kid, and I can honestly say that the culture, fashions, films, cartoons, and movies were ten times more interesting than the crapfest of pop culture we have today.

    I feel as if we're just in a creativity rut, the internet has also slowed it down a bit. I think either this or next decade will be pretty awesome.

    The mid to late 90's was a great time to be a teen. We had things like the internet that made us far more connected than the previous generation, but not everyone had a cell phone like today. Back then you could still go out walking with your friends all day doing God knows what without your parents tracking you down with your cell phone and tripping about you being sexually assaulted by a random wierd-o. It was a very unique time, one that will never be repeated. For instance, I had intrnet access, the only one in my group of friends to have it, but I still had to actually walk into the kitchen to make a call, and wait for my friends to get home to talk to them. Everything is instant these days, you don't have to wait on much of anything. In the '90s you had to live at the speed of life, not light, but you still had technology to entertain yourself and connect you.

    The late 90s SUCKED to be a kid, I remember how fcking slutty everything just became all of a sudden.

    The internet ruined what being a kid was all about, no one even goes outside anymore.

    Maybe to be a teen it was awesome, but to be a kid you literally had to grow up immediately. MTV played tons of horrible rap music with stupid half naked hoes dancing around ugly fat-ass wannabe gangsters.

    The early 90s had some of the that, except the hip hop was fun. Also there were alot awesome rock videos and some old stuff they still played.

    You had to be a teen imo to have enjoyed the late 90's, as the culture then was focused on more edgy and crash tv programming. I'd like it because it was a direct response to the the programming era of the 80's and early 90's. Problem imo was when the mid-late 00's was trying to copy the sucessful programing of the Millenium era, which didn't work because of a lot of different things.

    vkimo, having a family definately makes this time the best, imo. I think fondly of 1996 as "the year" in my life, but certainly it isn't all downhill from that point as an individual. Culturally perhaps, but you can't live in the past, you're always evolving and improving. To the point about everything getting "slutty" all of a sudden, I concur. When MTV started playing rap music 24/7 America changed, and I don't think it was for the better. Now you have Miley Cyrus showing her boobs and Lyndsey Lohan lezzing out and doing coke in magazines, young people are fucked these days, imo. Poor kids. There is no innocence anymore, even the little girls on iCarly have to show some leg and shake their asses to be taken seriously. It's all about sex and money, which is just sad.

    The 80s were best for cartoons. Transformers, He-Man, Jayce And The Wheeled Warriors, Ghostbusters, The Real Ghost Busters, etc.

    Several great cartoons did come out in the 90s, though. Spongebob, Doug, Rugrats, Ren & Stimpy, etc.

    The 80s were good for BOYS, I never felt compelled to watch Transformers or He-Man. The 90s were more universal and versatile.

    Plus those were just actions shows, 90s shows were more surreal, Take Space Ghost: Coast to Coast...what was that show about? Ren and Stimpy? I'd like to know what drugs they did over at Nickelodeon studios during the early 90s.

    Well, you can chalk it up to the same people behind Aqua Teen Hunger Force and Robot Chicken.

    There were more out there cartoons in the 90's, like the Head and MAXX.

    What about She-ra? She was pretty much a badass. She had a horse too, which all girls love.
