    The thing is they should not be limited to that as they have a whole history of cartoons dating back many many years they can draw on :sympathy:. I remember Donald Duck Presents :)

    And remember the various Mickey-related shows. If Disney wanted to make its mouse more geared towards older audiences, all they would need to do is keeping airing things lik Runaway Brain.

    Now that's the Mickey that became king in Kingdom Hearts :flirt:!

    And that's also the Mick that's associated with Walt's vision of the company & not the vision of Eisner and his friends.

    Really?:) So 1995 Mickey and Kingdom Hearts Mickey are the real Mickey:excited:?

    Yep. For after Runaway Brain aired, Eisner's choices resulted in Roy Disney's resignation (and Roy was the desendant of Walt himself who was a former chairman of the company).

    I never knew they showed Dinosaurs before! I only used to get the free previews. But I love then anyway!

    I remembr this show. I think my cousin had them video typed as she as a fan of the book series whens he was younger.

    Well, it is sad, but he did choose to step down. But in a lot of ways I would not blame him.:p

    Oh yeah! I remember "Donald Duck Presents"! I missed it after they replaced it with "Quack Attack."

    Donald Duck Presents was so much better IMHO:excited:
  9. wwfpooh

    Agreed. I can even remember when Donald himself had his own theme song, even though the show was really produced years before in the 60's & 70's (but were--thankfully for us--reaired in the 80's). But back to the 90's...I remember that a few of the games we 80's children grew up with--like Guess Who?--got a face lift (i.e. the aforementioned game added new choices in regards to faces, clothing, age, and job description).

    But didn't "Duck Presents" and "Quack Attack" show the same exact cartoons? I do remember seeing and playing the old Guess Who before and it was so funny because I had the newer version.
  11. wwfpooh

    wwfpooh New Member

    Me, I had--and still have--the classic version.

    I just found this and... Omg! I have to revive it *gives CPR*
    I LOVE THE 90s! So Much! I want to explode with delight of the fantastical awesomeness of this thread. I grew up in the 90s, and it seemed so many good bits of TV and music were produced then. To demonstrate this, I am actually going to listen to Believe by Cher to celebrate. Love that song....

    Rock On 90s!

    Late 90's can go away for all I care. That's when things started to hit rock bottom for entertainment. Music became bland and the reality tv show started to catch on with networks.

    Early 90's were the best of that decade.

    Anybody remember Green Jelly? I never really listened to their songs but they were pretty well known when I was in middle(?) school. Boyz II Men was big, too.

    I got one...

    Does anyone remember those little ring things that you would round up in this little pocket toy thing and when you pushed the button it would spin on the ground.

    But that's not all it would do, it was meant to be like a battle thing. It would have popular super heroes and villains from Street fighter, Power Rangers and even WWF (Now WWE) wrestlers. I remember the bad guys would have black rings and the good guys would have gold.

    Anyone remember those, it's killing me trying to remember. I use to have a few of those, but like pogs, it wasn't long before before sat in my closet and collected dust.

    Actually I just found the name, they were called "Spin Fighters," man I thought those things were so cool...for about a week. I'm thinking of looking them up on ebay and maybe reliving a small forgotton, but enjoyable moment in my childhood.

    Ayup, I remember the 1890s all right, especially when I was first introduced to one of those movin' picture shows, or "flickers," as we called 'em. Ayup.

    First one I ever saw was of a train...thing seemed so darn real, I ran outta the thee-ater screamin' at the top of my lungs, convinced that the darned train was gonna break through the screen, and run us all over. Scared the dickens outta me, and a good many other patrons as well. Ayup. T'wasn't the only one...

    bazooka_beak Active Member

    ^ And you didn't need sounds in them "flickers," neither. Some chap playing the piano off to the side was enough!

    Ayup, 'tis very true. Never quite adjusted to the "talkies." Wasn't my cup of tea. Simple pianist was enough fer the likes of me...didn't need no fancy-schmanzy gimmicks.

    Lol, I can relate that way. And it's also really weird because I'll hear a song that's, like, 40 years old and I'll go, "I haven't heard this in donkey's years!", people find that really odd. XD I wish I was alive then, though. *Sigh*

    I was born in the 90s. I tend to bag myself for that but's it's not so bad. Great cartoons came out of the 1990s. The fads were pretty cool too. And the toys. =D
