        Warren: What are you doing?
        AJ: I'm gluing these quarters to the floor.
        Warren: What the hell for, man?
        AJ: I don't really feel the need to explain my art to you, Warren.

      Mix tapes were best when the double cassette player came out….before was only radio to cassette and you had to be good cutting it on time before the guy started speaking or commercials started

          • kerilyn

    • Vanilla Gorilla

      I remember watching that show when I was a little ankle biter. Loved it, but can't think of the name.

    • MonkeyMadness

      Yes, The New Zoo Review is correct.

      • patov40

  • xXbeermonkeyXx

    how could our childhood suck when we had a ninja turtle pizza shooter? #21

    • http://thechive.com ontherun1989

      Do you remember the TMNT action figures that shot pizza's from their chest? Those were amazing!

    • Dick Salad

      I lost all the damn pizzas…

      • Krikkit

        Me too! In about tree days!

    • Musabi

      I used to wake my sister up by using the pizza thrower and shooting her in the face!

    • Zoohunter

      if you removed the bottom part of the pizza thrower, you had one hell of a weapon… those little plastic pizza's were serious business!!

    #12 Remember that from elementary school. I forget the purpose of it.
    #18 Haha, that was a funny show.
    #21 One of the best toys I ever had. Too bad I lost all the damn pizzas.

    • http://thechive.com ontherun1989

      Heads up 7 up! 7 kids walked around and would put your thumb down and you would have to guess who put your thumb down. Always a great game to end a school day on.

    • houtini

      I have no idea what's going on in #12

    • Vanilla Gorilla

      #12 was game. Fuckin' awesome, I might add!

      • Vanilla Gorilla

        was "A" game

        • Nah

          was "THE" game

    • mouse209

      #12 wikipedia "Seven Up (game)" mentions it was for teachers to find who the cheaters were so to keep an eye on them. LOL.

      • LC

        damn then i was screwed

    • Smalls

      the purpose of #12 was to give the teacher a break from dealing with the snot nosed students bullshit that they've been handling all day! haha

      • Franklin1138

        Your explanation is best. It's called "play a mindless game and flirt with the boy/girl you like while the teacher sneaks out for a cigarette."

      #18 I'M doing LAUNDRY!

    • Waylon

      Patrick Warburton is the man. Voice of two of the great animated characters of all-time, among other things.

      • dashete

        Yeah but neither of them were The Tick. You're thinking of the later live-action series.

      • Miguel

        Patrick was the actor who played him in the 2001 series. Townsend Coleman, the voice of Must See TV was his voice in the antimated series from 94-98

    • MikeK

      Nothing beat the original comic books. Those were the best! Pesky ninjas…

  • Ben

    #11 Song popped into my head right away. Had to look it up on youtube.

    #34 ninja turtle t-shirt, thought you could sneak that past me

  • teh_shard


    Trick or treat, you sonofabitch!!

    This is actually the most appropriate pic in this post, seeing as how a whole new generation of kids will get to know and love Beavis and Butthead now.

    • coulditbe

      Umm, I'm from that generation and that show was fucking lame…

      • https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=900785222 Frédéric Purenne

        I agree, I never laughed a single time!

        • Brutal Deluxe

          I do mean this negatively. You're a humorless bastard if you didn't find this funny even once.

      • Brutal Deluxe


    • V4Vendetta14

      Ha HA …I still remember watching my first Beavis and Butthead moron-a-thon!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Dolfan0925

      Just saw the new episode last night. I missed those guys.

      • lowdown

        No music videos this time around. This sucks royally. MTV no longer wants to have anything to do with music. Bringing Beavis and Butthead back is simply a ploy to get a new generation of slacker types to watch the fucking garbage that is MTV programing. I am so disappointed in Mike Judge for going along with this "comeback". One of the real redeeming qualities of B & B was the exposure to music that may not have usually played on MTV. I discovered one of my favorite bands (ween) through that show. This new shit makes me sad.

    Find the chic in #19

    Anyone remember who she is/was?

    • ajsdad74

      Character name: Emmy Jo / Actress name: Emily Peden. Married to the guy character in real life.

      • http://www.tube8.com SimonPhoenix

        Thank You .. I didn't even recognize the show, let alone the chic.

        You, KICK ASS!

        • this is me

          It's the New Zoo Review, Comin' Right at You

          • patov40

            It's quite an unusual thing / the animals talk and sing!

            • Max Manus

              They do more than just talk and sing. Watch this NC-17 rated outtake.

  • Brodie19212

    pictures # 8, 12, and 13 define my entire childhood. i haven't been happier than when i saw these pictures 🙂

    #33 Bill Fucking Murry. When the new Ghostbusters coming out?

    • Franklin1138

      AKA Richard Thornberg, the "at any cost" news reporter from the first two Die Hard movies.

    • Master_Rahl

      a staple douchebag character for the 80's movies. I always loved to hate him.

    • DeuceBrew

      Why are people thumbs downing? So he spelled Murray wrong, big fuckin deal.

      • DoucheBrew

        Cause like you he's a Douche

        • DeuceBrew

          Still doesn't answer my question. The picture (William Atherton as Walter Peck from the EPA) and quote are from Ghostbusters, it was said by Bill Fuckin Murray.

    • Huzzah

      One showing of Ghostbusters on the big screen every Thursday for the last couple of weeks. . . I was going to go the last two weeks. Last week, a work function. This week, picking my dad up at the airport. GAH!
