    We all remember them and in most cases will reflect back on them from time to time. While growing up everyone had a favourite show, toy and or game which has now, in most cases, become discontinued. So this thread is meant to reflect on those old games, toys and or shows that you were once fixated to. Ill be the first to start. While growing up I used to watch this one popular show called Street Sharks about Sharks which fought crime I believe. Here is a picture which may help some people who have seen the show before remember it.

    Edit: Image not working, I'll upload one tomorrow when I get the chance.

    I'll try to contribute more to this thread tomorrow or at least in the days to come depending on this threads popularity. The only reason I haven't posted more is due to the fact that it's quite late and I have a class quite early in the morning. Oh and if you are going to post about a show, toy and or game you grew up with please provide a picture if possible.

    Show: I think I watched Alvin and the Chipmunks a lot, but I can't seem to remember anything earlier than that.

    Toy: I loved to play with remote controlled cars from an early age, and the one I loved most was a small car with a wire connecting the car and remote, so you had to move around with the car. :lol:
    I am sorry, but I can't seem to find a picture of it nowadays.

    Game: The earliest memory of playing a game has to be Duck Hunt. What a fantastic game that was.

    The 90's were full of useless toys that everyone remembered. It's different though, because I used to have Barbies and those spinning dolls that always you to traject into your eye. Not like I used to look over it whilst it spun or anything...

    I can't find a picture otherwise my IT class will think I'm a nutcase. But those things were lethal, they were brilliant.

    My favorites were the original Transformers. Not like the cheap plastic stuff they use today. Masters of the Universe were sweet. too.

    My good ol' days are a bit more of the ol' part :D

    My *love* growing up was cars (OK, it still is), so I had miles of Hotwheel track (and cars, both Hotwheels and Matchbox), and later a ton of slotcar gear (the older style with the alignment pins and plastic U type connectors).

    For some reason, way earlier in my childhood, Ultraman always stuck out (and of course Speed Racer :D ). I also dug on the original Sid and Marty Krofft live action stuff like Land of the Lost.

    90's Kids FTW

    Show: Pokemon, Rugrats (the ****), Catdog
    Toy: I played with a lot of figurines, specifically of animals. Also, I really liked that thing that you sit down on and spin a centerpiece, which spun you around in a circle. Sit and Spin, was it?
    Games: Duck Hunt/TMNT (NES) I was incredibly disappointed when I read a review a while back that ripped TMNT apart. I played that all the fricking time and I could never beat it (I was like 5). It was my cousins game, so I don't think I ever got past the first part...If I were to buy a VC game, that would be it regardless of how terrible it is, just for kicks and laughs.

    Show: Batman, Spider-man, drangon ball... you know the type

    Toy: Lego! I used to be obsessed with them. I occasionally get them back out again when I get a super brain wave (last time I built a bad ass cannon out of lego, with crazy fire power. And all I used was some gears... and some more gears... and some more...).

    Game: Super Mario All Stars, Castlevania 4, Super Mario World, Top Gear (pretty bad ass game), oh and of course Secret of Mana! Nearly forgot: Yoshi's Island, Lemmings 2, Super Mario Kart, and countless other games. I'd still be playing if my SNES hadn't broken :sick:
