    I still have #49. Great old school game!

    • Zoey

      I still have the 2nd version of this game (the green one). I throw and 9V in it and play it every now and them when i come across it in the basement.

      • R. Burgundy-SanDiego

        I actually have the older version that was my dads from the '70s or so. The batteries are held in by duct tape and some of the lights are burned out but it still a blast to roll old school style.

        (very awesome)

        • Chi Town

  • Chance

    I'm with Jeff, how am I 27??? Seems like yesterday I was rocking the Atari in my Ghostbusters t-shirt.

    • Slacker Bob

      If a kid didn't have Atari, their parents didn't love them.


  • Nemesis

    Just read yesterday that they're deploying a heat-ray weapon in Afghanistan. Well, I recognise a lot of the stuff in this post and I can say proudly, "I was there before the future started".

      • Andy

    Last week I plugged my NES and duckhunt into my LCD TV. I found out the hard way that the gun doesn't work on these TV's! Now I need to save my old TV for the occasional hunt.

    • tad

      I had the same problem lol I guess it needs the reflection of the glass

      • Slacker Bob

        YEA! Where's our Nex-Gen Guns!!! Fuckers!

  • Zoey

    What ever happened to Mayor McCheese? Did his political career get ruined by some sex scandal? You don't hear much from him anymore, although he was on the Simpson's once.
    And you gotta love the METAL playground equipment. None of this weak, wimpy plastic stuff of today.
    I miss it all.

    • Nugget

      If that is you in the pic when are you getting your own Chive post?

  • pufffdragon

    "You can't do that on TV" . The show that started the whole getting slimed thing. And Barf burgers. How could I forget you. So many memories. Best post ever!

    #33, accelerated.reader

    #36, always wanted a piece of the oatmeal creme pie in that movie…remember the roger rabbit cartoon at the beginning of the vhs?

    #46, Lets, Get, DANGEROUS!

  • uberbrie

    Dear Chive Uncle Cody was a stoner, he lived in a van parked next to his relatives, never really did any thing, was always happy, and was definitely permafried…I never got that until later in life. Additionally please bring back snap Bracelets, that is all.

    • Slacker Bob

      Grats on your permafried status! Too bad it took you until later in life to get it!

    • courtney

      They DID bring back snap bracelets, in a way, only now they don't DO anything except look weird. They're those armful of skinny pieces of rubber that're supposed to mean how many friends you have, or something. I forget what THEY'RE called. Slacker thinks YOU'RE permafried. I guess HE is.

  • MissChris

    Hells yea, this post is a big time WIN! I remember that exact episode of Step by Step! I still love Where the Red Fern Grows & Where the Sidewalk Ends. Loved my Skip-it! Honey I Shrunk the Kids = Awesome!
    LOL. I'm 26 and this was totally my childhood!

  • peteyroberto

    #4….Am I the only one on here old enough to have had the Fisher-Price service station?????

    • Travis

      I had one, also! I'm 35.

    • Vince

      oh no… I think my mom kept some of that old Fisher-Price stuff. I don't know if she's still got the station or not.

    • Slypig

      Nope, I had one. And now my son has the new version, which is no where near as good.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=543642503 G. A. Christian Bilou

      Not at all, and my Fisher Price people came with wood bodies, not plastic.

    • Slakker Bob

      If you didn't have one, your parents didn't love you. Just like the Hotwheels carpet thing, hey where the hell is the Car Carpet?!! I'm 33 btw.

    • Ally

      I had one! I'm the youngest at 30 🙂

  • Sarge

    Thanks for this awesome montage! I remember each and every one of those things! Great.
