I had a crazy chain of events. It all started when I was on an imdb message board. I was looking at a "Nickelodeon is dead" type of topic and someone posted a link for the Roundhouse opening on YouTube. I watched the clip on YouTube and as I was watching, I noticed a list of other clips, including some old Nickelodeon bumpers. I watched a compilation of bumpers in one clip and noticed Retrojunk.com in the corner of the video. I typed it into the address field and...

    To be honest, I joined RJ to just reply at this topic. But I decided to post everywhere as well.

      Well I've actually been watching this site for a LONG time! This was like the place to watch the classic old commercials that I haven't seen in years, and I think it's very rare to find any of those. :cool:

      It wasn't until just recently that my interest in this site made me come here, and I have to say that this place is VERY cool! :D

        I found this site two years ago while looking at this page:

        http://members.tripod.com/lisanostalgia1/80sproducts.html

        The section was called advertising links. The link lead to where the commercial page was. If you find the link on that page, don't click it because it's an old link. I had an old computer back then so it was difficult to look at the commercials. Once I got a WinXP, I was hooked. This site has been a part of my life ever since.

          I was in the middle of a snow storm deep in the woods drinking wine and feasting on junk food with a friend. I asked did he remember "Mumenshans" and not only did he remember but started to act like the creepy slinky-type version. It was great. I tried to find the Mumenshans(spelling?), to see if they still existed and wound up here, at retro junk.

              I actually came across this site while looking through the forums on UltimateDisney.com. One topic had a trailer for The Little Mermaid, and the link took me right here. :)

              I just bought the DVD of The Little Mermaid yesterday too. :rolleyes:

                  I discovered this website over a year ago after I saw an old commercial for Dream Phone on ifilm.com with the retrojunk logo on it.

                      I was looking for PJ Sparkles online. Nothing really showed up, but then I noticed on Google there was a link to the RJ site. I found the forums, got an account, and created a thread about PJ Sparkles in the "Memory Lane" section. It was there that I met Sunriser and a few of my other fellow retro junkies. And here I am today! :)

                        One night almost 2 years ago my best friend and i were hanging out in her dorm room and we started talking about old shows and stuff and for some reason we started singing the theme song to some cartoon from the early '90s and we both thought the lyrics went a different way, so she jumped on her computer to try and find out and somehow wound up here. I thought the place was cool so she IMed the link to me and i've been coming here ever since

                            Me and my friends were talking about old school cartoons earlier and I decided to look for an intro for Pole Position and I saw this site. After that I spent like weeks looking at intros I remembered when I was little. I didn't even notice the forums until I actually looked at the bottom of the homepage so I joined.

                                    I found this site through YouTube. At the time, I was lookin for AMVs, but I got bored and search for cartoons I used to watch. I saw intros where it said RetroJunk on the bottom, Googled it and it spit me here. So I thank YouTube and Google for that. :cool:

                                        I'd actually been coming back and forth to this site for a while. It was just recently when someone else here made a column talking about SPAAAAAACE CASESSSSSSSSSSSSSS that made me want to join. I'm glad I did :)
