Goosebumps, Sister Sister, Push Pops...

  • You miss Fat Frogs every god damn sunny day...
  • Runners that lit up….LIT UP were pretty much the coolest things ever.
  • You cruised around the park in a pair of FX1s, FX2s, FX3’s or FX4’s
  • Goosebumps books were the scariest literature around
  • On looking back, Angelica Pickles from the Rugrats was a sadistic bitch…and Chucky had OCD

  • The NOW compilation cd’s were all the music you needed in life
  • Who loves Orange soda! I do I do I do I do I do ooooo

  • You loved beanie babies, or you got given them for Christmas and Birthdays… either way you had a shit load

  • You NEEDED one of those soft, squidgy pencil grips so you didn’t get a sore middle finger
  • Beano, Dandy, The Funday Times….Oh the lols
  • Kevin McAlisters’ talk boy was a genius invention. Keep the change ya filthy animal.
  • Bal la too quarp mala ia Macarena…. AAAYYYYYY MAKARENA!

  • How did Mr Art Attack do those big art pieces at the end of each episode?  AMAZING! Talking statue of a head…little creepy.
