Now, just how many of you know most of the things on the list? :)


  1. This list is missing a few things:

    Mis-matched and paint splattered Converse All-stars with the squiggly multi colored shoe laces (Think Punkie Brewster).

    Huge metallic silver purses to store an unlimited supply of blue mascara, hot pink lipstick, glitter hair gel and numerous scrunci’s.

    Caboodles Makeup Organizers

    Bonkers…The flavor that BONKS you out!

    For that matter…whistle pops, Fizz (you know, the hard round candies with the sour fizzy stuff in the center, they came in a long string of individually wrapped packets). Candy cigarettes, the giant 4 foot long pixie sticks (nothing like the sugar high you got off of those that is if you didn’t stop-up the end of the tube trying to suck it all out).

    Lawn darts

    Garbage-Pail Kids


    Crimping irons

    And does anyone besides me remember the “Presidential Rap”?

    Getting the theme song for “The Greatest American Hero” stuck in your head.

    and who could forget...

    “What You Talkin Bout Willis?”

  2. You are forgetting some of the best things about he 80s now cone on guys you should know this stuff and I am younger than all of you.

    1 G.I. Joe "A Real American Hero"

    2 You know the amazing things that the world learned could be done with bubble gum and duct tape, Thank you MacGyver

    3. "I Love It When A Plan Comes Together" was one of every boys favorites syaings, come on you all know you have said at least once in your life.

    4. And we all dreamed of owning K.I.T. and being able to drive your car with your watch, who didnt try that at least once.

    5. And who didnt cover thier sisters hair with silly string(in my case my cousin but same difference).

    See there is alot that you are forgetting.

  3. God... Bonkers. Whatever happened to those? Is there some guy in Omaha who KNEW they were going to quit making them and stockpiled them? I'd love to get his phone number. I bet now, after all those years, they're STILL softer than StarBurst!

    "What you talking about Willis" ain't funny. I'm emotionally scarred from that line. Not once in my whole life have I been able to get that line out without stuttering on BOTH "W's"... it's just not the same when it comes out like Mush Mouth! I want that one stricken from the record. May Gary Coleman die and burn in a willy-wonka-twinkie-laden hell for that line!!!

    MacGyver: Dude! I still love that guy. I'm MacGyver-ize things all the time and now I'm practicing with electricity!!!! Woohoo!

    My personal favorite was "I Ain't Gettin on No Plane Hannibal!"... THUD.

    KIT: Yeah.. remember.. I bought the lights for my car! Then I got pulled over by a cop for impersonating an officer! Dude!!! THey're RED and go from side to side... how in the hell is that like a cop you butt monkey?

    Now, my responses to the original post:

    2.) Pound Puppies sucked!
    3.) Slap bracelets were cool... but they were too gay for guys.

    19: JEM and the holograms!!! lol.. Yeah.. so what... I watched it!
    22: Two Words: Chester Copperpot!
    25: I have a whole theory on that one, but I'm not going to get into that in this forum.

    31: You goob.. He-Man and Shera were related... they couldn't do that... at least not in 37 of the 50 states.

    48: Is that anything like "Wonder Twin Powers Activate!"
