I don't know, it seems pretty pointless to me. It doesn't really fit with icanhascheezburger and Failblog. What do you guys think?

omigosh! Fisher Price barn! I had that! I didn't even remember that I did until I saw the picture XD

Also! Bob Ross... I miss him. His show was fantastic fun... of the calm variety. "We don't make mistakes, we just have happy little accidents" Very Happy




Anyhow, I don't know about the lasting power of this site, as there are plenty of nostalgia pages out there already, but I enjoyed it. Will I go back? Probably not.

Also, I think you have to be over 20 or so to even know what most of this is.

Oh you didn't just do that to Squee...Stop...the...nostalgia!

Though, the fact that it seems to be part of the lolz network means that Squee likely will be seeing more of it...

I mean, classics like Bob Ross and the Greatest American Hero? Zomg.

I was all set to go 'Ha! I remember most of it and I'm not older than twenty!'

But then I remembered I was. <_<

I had the exact same reaction, Nem. T.T

Well, that was fun, Pup. *sigh* I wish I was four again....

I remember all but the television shows - except for Bob Ross, he's unforgettable - and I'm only 18! I feel like I'm drowning in nostalgia.

Hmm, guess Ièm not old enough to remember some of the stuff...but I do remember the barn, , slap bracelets, that pin thing...Duck Hunt!!! Well of course fun dip. And that's mostly it.

PS. Bob Ross must have been parodied in a Boondocks. because that guy has the same hair as him. I don't know though. The only episode I saw.

It's called a fro, daydreamer, and the Boondocks weren't parodying anything with having fros...that was just that comic's style...It's just a style from the 70s.
That said, there's plenty of things that parody Bob Ross's show Smile

Well I know what a fro hairstyle is. He just seemed like what I thought he might have been characterizing. Then again, I never seen Bob Ross so I wouldn't know what his personality is like judging by a picture. Let's just say that based on the picture of Bob Ross and his description, he reminded me of that character I saw on that show, I think that be a more accurate description of what I meant. And I not only said that solely because of the fro but he had that grin and nice face (which in the show was quite creepy). The character was also an artist.

*sniff* I miss Bob Ross. Sad

I also promised to myself that I will get all those nostalgic things I had when I was a kid for my children so that when they're adult, we all can be nostaligc together! XD
