Lets take a trip down memory lane. TheCHIVE needs your help! (32 Photos)

Happy Friday, Chivers. I can’t think of a better way to cap off a week at theCHIVE then to let Chivers reminisce over their childhood. That’s right, the toys, the games, the eccentric outfits and hairdos. Pretty much anything and everything you can think of I would like to post on a weekly basis. There’s just one problem. Amazingly the internet is a bit thinner on nostalgia photos and content then you might think. And lets just say no new nostalgia photos are being posted anytime soon (funny thing about the past…it’s over).

So it’s up to you Chivers to help me populate the page every week with all your favorite parts of your upbringing. I want it all. Even if it’s just a photo of you wearing your favorite Care Bear outfit. Nothing to be ashamed of, you were just a stupid kid, right (Wink-wink, you were epic once). Anyways, I want it. And if all goes well we will post your childhood memories every Friday. Let the nostalgia flow through you!

Chive On!

  • mojokawa

    good old days…

    • bigdeal

      purple stuff!! the first time i realized that i hated humanity was when someone asked me "what is there to drink?" and i replied "oj, soda purple stuff" and noone laughed. fucking morons.

  • jetrome

    #4. Everyone better have said either out loud or in their head "Sit, Ubu, Sit. Good Dog. 'Woof!'"

    • https://www.facebook.com/bfcknrzl Brad Stevens

      I know I did. hahahaha

    • Badfish

      I always thought they were saying "booboo."

      • Bradster

        Yep, me too. Now I'm doing a facepalm!
        Facepalm, Ubu, facepalm. Good dog!

        • Big Man

          What show is this from, its actually killing me that i dont know

          • WTF

            Family Ties/Spin City

          • jimbojones

            Like, every show in the 80's.

      • James

        Same here. My dogs nickname is booboo so i was like woooww. I think its at the end of FullHouse .I remember that that stuff from my childhood. And I am only 16.

    • SteveySteveSteve

      Anyone who didn't is quite obviously some sort of communist spy.

      • Nina

        I had never seen that dog before. Guess we didn't get all the same shows over in Norway πŸ™‚

        • Griskaill

          We've had both Family Ties and Spin City airing in Norway. Guess you didn't watch the right channel…

    • Good Grief

      I forgot which show this was…….

    • Doc

      Yup! First thing that came to mind. lol

    • NELSON

      YUP, SURE DID.

    • OwnerOfYou

      Yep, you called it!

      • Steve

        NOOOOO!!! It was "Sit booboo sit. Woof. Good dog."

        • jetrome

        • Sorry Steve

          there are only 3 parts to that bumper and you got two of them wrong. πŸ˜€

  • Surf and Snow

    Needs Thunder cats!

    • jetrome

      Thunder Cats and Silverhawks. Those were my personal faves

  • Kris

    I had all but one of these. First? Probably not.

  • Paul

    #6 forgot to put on antiperspirant

    • dasuperfan

      i don't need antiperspirant on my hand … i need kleenex ass

    • straight paul

      yeah…that was the first thing i noticed about that picture too, not her tits…the sweat stain

      • Anonymous

        Weird, I didn't even notice it until you mentioned

        • bigdroors

          Ditto. With tits like that, how do you even notice a sweat drop?

      • SteveySteveSteve

        Either the statement is sarcasm or the name is

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Adam-Purcell/17815425 Adam Purcell

      Meh, I can deal with it.

    • yum

      I would totally bang heidi

    • Alex

      it seems to me thet someone is gay around here :)))

    • http://www.facebook.com/Teitn Sebastián Nullo

      Who cares, she's probably still hot right now

  • Dave

    #2 RAMPAGE!

    • Sterling Archer


    • mackeya

      Anybody else feel a bit let down after playing for hours to realize that the only ending the game offered was "Congratulations"?

      • Obvious

        That's a silly statement. Everyone knows that Rampage has no ending.

        • mackeya

          It did on the NES.

    • jetrome

      I just remembered. If you're playing with a friend and they "die" they shrink to human size and you could EAT them!! hahaha. Best part about this game!

  • Duuuude

    So much Zelda goodness. WIN.

  • jesus

    #10 psh wheres the super soakers?

    • Jessica Condrey

      yeah these were the Dollar Store versions

      • RoflFunk

        Both of you tardlets are wrong…those aren't water guns…they held little foam balls and you pushed forward to shoot them out

        • ty

          Uhhh no. Those are definitely water guns.

          • SteveySteveSteve

            You're all wrong. Those are flamethrowers from what I recall.

        • David_Flores

          Yep, I owned a few of them myself. I might even have them in the garage still. Good times. They made a very distinctive "Pop" when firing. Definitely not water guns. Although, during the summer we would soak the little foam balls in water before firing them at each other.

    • Jeremy

      Looks like the original Nerf guns to me, and those things f'in hurt!

    • Brendan

      Yes, they shot yellow foam balls and popped. I used to shoot my sister w/ them frequently

    • V4Vendetta14

      Entertechs were awesome back in the day. No gay neon colors. Just realistic looking assault water weapons, some with removable clips… Probably best used in the suburbs…

  • Guest

    #23 Oh Speak & Spell. How I miss the dulcet voice of the devil.

    • Zoey

      That thing taught me how to spell. I remember knowing every word in that thing. The hardest one for me to remember was qustion. I mean question!
      And wasn't it narrated by Steven Hawking?

  • Jessica Condrey

    #11 would give anything to own ❀ #14 Michael Jackson's Moonwalker for the Sega Genesis, man good times

    • Gooner29

      Both the game and the movie were great… now if only I could turn myself into a car.

    • Neverhood

      You can actually find cocktail cabinets relatively easily if you want one. Just go to Vegas. Those arcade conventions sell them off all the time. πŸ™‚

      • Friday Friday

        They are typically cheep too. You can get a decent one for around $500.

        • Jessica Condrey

          no amount of money would be too much πŸ˜‰ but that is a goal of mine to have one of those badboys in my living room ❀

  • PointBlank_

    i miss #9
