End of the week, might as well take a trip down memory lane (36 Photos)

We got a ton of childhood nostalgia submissions. If your picture didn’t make the list it is likely to come soon. Keep the submissions coming to bringittobob[at]gmail[dot]com.

    • Tim

      Yeah, I do too — but it got to close to a portable heater as a child and it's slightly discolored. 😦

  • googboog

    • r@f

      "Test your might" hidden code somewhere here.

      Mortal Kombat would not exist without Street Fighter II from which it copied.

      Me too. I loved how the coins would roll out down the slide.

  • Terrance_

    #10…Oh Yeah!

  • Terrance_

    #23…I still love fun dip. But who remembers how sad it was when the dip stick broke or when you opened the package and it was already broken…*tear*

    • Dex

      Not really nostalgic on this one, my students still get cracked out on this!

    • ssstoopid

      It's hard to eat because somebody always asks you for your sugar stick! That sounded kinda dirty… but seriously, I'm not ever going to give it up!

      • Terrance_

        Haha, yes!

    • viking

      this is the new stuff. the old ones had 3 flavors, and no color changing flavor

      • DeRaNgEd

        Wonder Years was great

    • http://echogeo.wordpress.com/ echogeo

      Hey Chive, do you think you can get a hold of Danielle Fishel and convince her to do a post? Perhaps a post of the Future Lower Back Problems variety. What are the chances? Slim & none?

  • Tmo

    #13 awesome! I still have huge boxes of pogs!!! #32 played many many hours of Sonic the Hedgehog on the battery sucking Game Gear!!

  • eDubya72

    #18 is bad ass, but who's #1?

    • cman987

      turtle from neverending story?

    • Chiveinator

      #18 is Frank Cotton's character from the original Hellraiser

      • Mitch

        He also bears a striking resemblance to Super Shredder

      • mipakr

        lord zed from power rangers

    • Terrance_

      It's Morla! The giant turtle from The Neverending Story, cman987 is right 🙂

      • Chiveinator

        #1 they had no chive to chive on for so long they started to chive to themselves

      • eDubya72

        Man I've always heard about those movies, probably watched one as a kid, but vaguely remember.

        • Foley

          My grandmother took me to all the neverending story movies at the movies when I was a kid, and all the ninja turtle movies. She was rad.

    • dom

      Bad guy from the Power Rangers movie. Embarassed to know that.

      • Randy Marsh

        Don't be, Lord Zedd was the shit

        • eDubya72

          Zedd was most definitely the shit. This. Is. A. Fact.

          • Just Sayin'

            He had nothing on zordon!

            Floating face in a tube; winning!

    #32 Ecco the Dolphin on the Sega GameGear was unbelievably difficult.

    • jjm

      wow, thought this post was looking back but yes, that game was very hard

    • http://renounceapprehension.blogspot.com/ MrRushing

      Damn i remember willing to give my right arm for a Game Gear.

    • Musashi

      Mine still works and I still have Ecco, Jurassic park, Power Rangers And most sonic games.
      This was an awesome machine I mean my xbox 360 has broken 8 times on me and this still works.

    • Dagoth Wit

      I hate to break it to you, but the Game Gear sucked. How long could you play Ecco before you had to change the batteries? 30 minutes?

  • Justin Zavalaa

    #13 fuck yea pogs! im not a 80s baby but istill had pogs!

    • D.J.

      Me too!

  • Nate

    I always imagined Doozer Sticks tasted like those sugar wands. Effin' Fraggles…

    • the elusive


    • Bingo

      Hell yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • http://thechive.com/ Paula_

    Ooohhh….. soooo many hours went in to playing that… not the shareware version of course, the full version. And Doom 2, Duke Nukem, Half-Life (& Counterstrike), Quake 1, 2, 3, Unreal Tournament….

    – the one that played Doom for hours

    • Ryan

      What the hell has happened to you?

      • http://thechive.com/ Paula_

        I still play every now and then, still C&C Tiberium Wars currently 🙂

        – the one you love to hate

    • lahdel

      for me it was the original wolfenstein…. spent many hours on that game when I was 10 lol

      • http://thechive.com/ Paula_

        "Mein leben!". Yup, that was the first '3D' shooter for me too. And Spear of Destiny.

        – the one you love to hate

    • Old school

      Playing full versions is for rich people. I played the fuck out shareware and liked it. Same level over and over again ftw.

      • http://thechive.com/ Paula_

        Before this thing called internet we exchanged and copied floppies. Old school filesharing!

        – the one you love to hate

  • Qwerty

    oh god Macgyver! Damn this makes me feel old…#26

    • Chiveinator

      he'd never get past the TSA today

    • Bags8888

      (singing) MACGRUBER…!!! Damn you SNL.

    • That Guy

      i am sooo shocked that Swiss Army never came out with a MacGyver knife… for how much business he brought them. over there i'm sure it's called the Swiss Army Knife Show.

    • equalizermax

      I heard they're making a movie of it…. That I want to see!

  • herb

    #33 — Man, I got screwed out of footed pajamas. My feet were always too big, so my ma had to cut the feet off. Not the same thing at all.

    • http://renounceapprehension.blogspot.com/ MrRushing

      because of my lack of footy PJs, i am on a constant search for an adult sized pair. I came close once but they fit the wife better… alas…

  • LeoCast

    What is #6 called?

    • Ratingsbeest

      Biker Mice from Mars

    • dtrickey

      Biker Mice……..FROM MARS!

    • WowThatsStrange

      Biker Mice From Mars BITCHES!!!

    • Just Sayin'

      Get the **** out! >:-(

    • LagunaLoireLL

      Biker Mice from Mars

    • Vince

      This show, sir, was awesome

    • mac

      im actually surprised that other people know that that movie was. One of my childhood favorites..

  • WowThatsStrange


    I left mine on a fucking plane….never got over it.

    • shekle

      you can still buy them places. unfortunately

    • lil slugger

      Mine was stolen by a crack head.. i had the limited edition blue version too… Im with you, its still an open wound

  • NateyTheGreaty

    "Not that it mattersssssss"

  • august west

    I know there's a fair amount of crossover b/w decades but seems a lot more like early/mid 90s here than 80s stuff. I was born in 86 and remember much of this very well.

    • hugoi

      me too

    • Badfish

      Maybe you remember it because this stuff was still around in the early 90s? Its not like 80s stuff disappears once a new decade rolls around.

      • chewy106

        Except it's not 80s stuff, it's mid-90s stuff. Orbitz drinks weren't even released until 1997. Doom is 1993. Power Rangers are 1993. Boy Meets World is 1993. Mortal Kombat is 1992. Labeling it as "80s" when nearly half is from 1992 or later is just lousy editing.

        • j_rizzo

          When you're born in the 80s a big chunk of your childhood takes place during the 90s – I turned 18 in 1999 & remember most of this shit from when I was a kid… Never mind the fact that a lot of this is 80s stuff #29

  • lahdel

    #22 clearly says copyright 1993 on the label…. but I admit, it's hard to find an image of a 5 1/4" floppy disk anymore lol///

    • lahdel

      though, i was thinking 80's… that's what the last post i saw was about

      • NothingToSeeHere

        Nope Doom was early '90s and it was awesome.

    • Umpty Scrunch

      Those are 3 1/2 not 5 1/4
