Top Ten Reasons Why 80s and 90s Were Good


The Top Ten

1 The Music

Almost all my favourite bands are from the eighties and nineties!

I'd also like to say that there was not so much technology, so people actually went out and socialised for real.
Also, I realise the irony of saying this in an internet forum...

My parents use to say we grew up listening to Michael jackson and we will say to our kids that we had dustbin beaver in our times

2 The Television Shows

Don't forget these cool cartoons everyone:Rugrats, Catdog, Hey Arnold, Ed, Edd n Eddy, Dexter Laboratory, Johnny Bravo, Recess, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Powerpuff girls, Cow and Chicken and 1999-2004 SpongeBob - TheMask

Cartoons are starting suck these days (2010's). But they still have good shows I'm just saying most cartoons suck, not all of them. - CartoonsGirl

Compare Family Ties with something like Mean Girls. I think we know which one's better. - Metalhead1997
