So when you were eight yrs old or in third grade, what was popular?
Was Arthur on? Were DVD players around...

When I was his age, um....
TV and VCR was about it. There were no DVDs or Cellphones, just those Flipphones

Yoyo's were popular
Skipping ropes
Elastics, these elastic bands you would jump in and out of, it was weird....
GI Joe, Jem and the Holograms and The chipmunks and chipettes
Cupcake dolls.
The sun tots and the smoggies
Fraggle rock Very Happy Very Happy which is still popular Smile
Slinkys
Bright colored tights and high pony tails

That makes you a 1988 baby?
Since The spice girls hit it big in 1996 and Mission impossible with Tom Cruise was mega popular and The hunchback of notre dam Disney Version was on at the movies....
Yeah and Arthur started officially

When I was Arthur's age was 1997-1998. Cartoon Network was really beginning to hit its stride with new shows like DEXTER'S LABORATORY, JOHNNY BRAVO, and COW AND CHICKEN. Dexter was particularly big.

Once 1998 came into play, N64 was the big thing, and Yoshi had become a full-fledge superstar by that point.

Rocko was always a favorite of mine (I was more of a CN guy, but I always watched Nick for Rocko, as well as KENAN AND KEL and the original ALL THAT!) . . . but all the other kids hated it. I think it's because at the time they didn't "get it" . . . then again, I didn't really either till I got older, it just simply amused and entertained me, lol.

Same problem with COW AND CHICKEN, I was really the only kid who liked it.

Yeah, I never got cow and chicken but I liked CATDOG
"alone in the world was a little cat dog" lolz

Then there was "Very angry beavers" but i did not like that much either.
Not really a fan of those shows....except Catdog and I always preferred shows like Doug and rugrats over them.

Kenan and Kel was funny. I also liked Sister, Sister with Tia and Tamera, remember that?

Ah well, let me fill you in. The show is about a mad scientist who launched a man into a satellite in outer space and forces him to watch the worst films in Hollywood. Accompanying the man in these movies are his two robot friends.

I'm guessing you must have seen some of the later episodes Julz, because to be honest, M*A*S*H really did jump the shark in its last few seasons: by that time, the show became this dark, depressing, preachy mass of political correctness that bore little similarity to the show it was in the beginning - a military sitcom with added depth and excellent character development. In fact, many of the writers of the earlier season of M*A*S*H came from HOGAN'S HEROES.

Same with BEAKMAN'S WORLD and BILL NYE THE SCIENCE GUY: both are great edutainment shows with a quirky scientist as the host who makes learning science fun and exciting, but BEAKMAN'S WORLD - while a genuinely fun show itself - was certainly a lot cheesier and wackier compared to Bill Nye. Oh, the memories I have of that fat hairy guy in the rat costume, lol.
