  7. Invader Zim is 15 years old, ending 13 years ago -- and also it's still cancelled forever.

    Also Teen Titans Go! is nothing compared to the original Teen Titans.

  10. And lucky star? Also old
     
  11. I love Invader Zim.

    But we don't speak of Teen Titans Go, ever. If it didn't act as a shit reboot of one of the best cartoons of all time that took a show that didn't talk down to its audience into the most childish bullcrap ever...

    Y'know what, never mind. I don't want to turn this into a rant. >.>

    I realized that after I posted, but holy crap, I was a youngin' when Phantom Menace came out.
     
  12. Princess Mononoke came out in 1999.

  15. Christ, what is with this subject popping up so suddenly? Like, third time in 3 days its popped up in my circles.

    My grandparent's remember watching the speech of whoever it was telling "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!" while with my mom being super pregnant with me. Then holding me as the family watched the first new's vids of the wall actually being torn down and those people partying and stuff cause yay no more russian rape-icide and communism!

    Just remembering and watching the very first Toonami previews had me shuddering with nostalgic delight/terror.. Then the Great Crate Contest Nickelodeon had whenever ago and some little black kid in New York won it. Never could write the address off the screen fast enough...

  19. My favourite TV Show of all time. Everything else gets compared to it and typically falls short in some way. (Albeit season 1 took a bit of time to find its voice.)

    What makes me feel old remembering it is I remember my dad copying episodes via VHS recorder. (Apparently that acroymn is so old, my phone no longer has it in its spellcheck database either.) We didn't have the spare money to buy it so we had a few VHS cassettes we would just overwrite to keep things we wanted to see again. I remember him explaining things to me. Like why the "evil looking crab ship people" weren't /really/ evil, or why the "artificial suit wearing people who always spoke in riddles and double entendre" weren't /really/ good. He used the show to teach me how to view the world as shades of grey: Most people aren't evil, they're just trying to get by, and evil people manipulate scared people into doing bad things.

    That's what makes me really feel old watching it. I remember the bloody VHS tapes, and thinking I was super special being able to watch an adult show with my dad. :ferret:
