The original series started in '87 but went on strong after that and most of us saw it especially since I bet somebody in our family was a fan and had the tapes and made us sit and watch it (in my case it was my dad who loved the show -_-). At first it didnt seem too cool but after the first episode I fell in love. How could you not love the Turtles?!
There was Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael, Michelangelo and of course Splinter.
Leonardo was the courageous and disciplined martial arts student and leader of the group(blue mask). Donatello was the smart one that would rather use his brains than his martial arts in a fight(purple mask). Raphael(my favorite) was the hot-headed, aggressive, sarcastic, fierce fighter with a good heart(red mask). Michelangelo was the free spirited, easy going one that always provided some comedy(orange mask). Splinter was a mutant rat that adopted the TMNTs and raised them as his own meanwhile training them in martial arts.
Which one was your favorite?
There should not be a single person on this website that doesnt know what this is a picture of. I for one spent way more time than I should have learning how to play the game properly and coming up with strategies and trading cards with the boys(getting odd looks from the girls, being a girl myself). Do you remember spending hours watching the show to better your card playing skills and the reactions you had to every single duel?! I used to pretend the monsters would pop out of the cards and they werent just cards but that they actually held the creature inside. Hey call me crazy but it made playing the game 10 times more fun and like a devoted fan I still have all the Yu-gi-oh cards from when I was a kid. I kept every single one hidden away from everybody and used to on occasions just take them out and remember playing with them. Still have the original Black Luster Soldier card and it was always my favorite. God I feel like such a nerd sometimes ^-^
Anyone else do this?
For me personally when Pokemon was on tv back in the early 2000's (now not at all) I owned the tv. Nobody in the house was allowed to touch the remote. I used to hide it so that I could watch the show and I'd sit an inch away from the tv. I'd beg for the cards until my mom gave in and I'd sit in my room pretending they were real. The places a 5 year olds imagination can take you is pretty damn amazing. I dont think there is a single person that can say they've never had anything to do with Pokemon. You've either seen it, had a card, played the video game or knew the name of at least one pokemon(my dad knows the names and to this day teases me for loving it so much. Poor dad never got to watch anything but pokemon when I was little). And I bet quite a few of us wanted Ash and Misty to get together and thought Gary was either a total loser or the coolest guy ever. Anyone else? Come on. I'm definitely cant be the only one!
I highly doubt that there is a single person that does not miss Pre-K/ Kindergarten Nap Time. It was an essential! We used to hate it at the time because we thought it wasnt fun. We'd rather color and play with blocks or have snack time but you have to admit you probably miss this more than anything! With all the insane things that need to get done now we could all really use a nap time
