Guest Blogger Michelle: You know you grew up in the 90s when…

Hey ya’ll, I’m Michelle from Southern Ambition and I was lucky enough for Lindsey to ask me to guest post while she’s having tons of fun at Disney World. Linds, when you read this, know how incredibly jealous I am of you!

Lindsey and I are just a year or so apart and for the most part, we are  90s kids. In true 90s kid fashion I grew up being obsessed with Barney, BJ and Baby Bop and the ORIGINAL Mighty Morphing Power Rangers. I also grew up watching Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood, Reading Rainbow, the Magic School Bus and Wishbone. I googled a list of popular 90s children’s shows because let’s face it, I can’t possibly remember every television show I watched a kiddie. While reading the list I found myself saying, “Oh man, I used to love that show!” or “I totally forgot about that one.” Do ya’ll remember Are You Afraid of the Dark, Inspector Gadget, Recess, Gullah Gullah Island, Double Dare, All That, Kenan and Kel, and the Flintstones?

Sometimes while flipping through the channels, I like to stop on the Disney channel and Nick and the shows just aren’t the same. Maybe I’m a little biased because I’m staying true to my generation. While I honestly do enjoy The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, it just isn’t as funny as All That or Kenan and Kel. “Who loves orange soda?” “Kel loves orange soda!”

Also, the children’s movies now are different and the things they put in children’s movies are different. The new Puss in Boots movie that came out says a few cuss words, one was even said in the preview. And first of all, who puts the word ‘puss’ in a children’s movie? Not a fan. Some of my favorite movies of the 90s include: Home Alone, Hook, Beethoven, The Mighty Ducks, Dennis the Menace (which I own on DVD), Hocus Pocus, The Little Rascals (I also own this and Sandlot on DVD), and soooo many more. I googled a list of these too and I realized that I was such a little movie-watcher when I was a kid. 

I really miss good, wholesome television shows and movies. I miss television shows for children that viewed kissing as a no-no (remember, we all had cooties) and didn’t cuss. Television and movies now are truly different than the stuff we grew up watching just as the shows our parent’s and grandparent’s watched are different than the shows we watched as kids.

What were some of your favorite television shows and movies as a kid?

I love this kind of posts. I am portuguese and i'm 23 but all the movies you mentioned are the same i used to watch. The little Rascals were awesome and we had Home Alone every single Christmas. There's no Christmas without Home Alone by the way and i keep watching it every year! :)

I also loved the Secret Garden, the Addam Family, The Return to Oz, My, Mac and Me (oh God i hated it but my cousins loved it so i had to watch with them), The Land Before Time (classic!) :) and i LOVED Beatrix Potter stories :) i'll never forget this intro
