    I was just looking at a few videos of Kid Pix on YouTube today. I had the first edition of Kid Pix from the mid-90s, and it was the bomb! It featured some of the most '90s-style sound effects you will ever hear in a game.

    Speaking of computer games, anyone here ever play the Reader Rabbit games as a kid? Like Reader Rabbit's 1st Grade or the Interactive Reading/Math Journey games?

    Like Schfifty, I too only remember the first edition of Kid Pix; one of my favorite features was the video postcards:

    Speaking of sound effects, there was always one particular sound effect from Kid Pix I honestly thought sounded like Big Bird - see if you don't think the same:

    Oh yeah, that little boy yelling "WOW!" when you erase a picture. It does slightly sound like BB, but I never thought that...just sounded like some young dude.

    And the sound during the film leader was also an erasing method. I always liked the 3, just because of how different it was from the others. :)

    Yes, that was a favorite of mine too: "THREEEEEEEEEE!!!"

    Oh man, I freaking loved Kids Pix when I was little. My sister and I played it all the time. Among my favorite things in that game were the sound effects such as the "Wow" and "Three" sound effects that you guys mentioned. But I also really loved that sound that happened whenever you covered the screen with those colors, you know that "bloop bloop bloop" sound. I also really loved that stick of dynamite that made the picture explode.

    I also played the Jump Start games, Elmo's Preschool (which frustrated me because Elmo was the only character in it), James Discovers Math, and The Playroom (from the same creators as James...Math, starring two human sized mice). I also remember that frustrating Tarzan game where you lost health every time a monkey touched you or something. There was also the Clue Finders series, Math Blaster (well I mostly watched my older sister play that), and Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego.

    I remember getting one of the Reader Rabbit games for my fifth birthday and being really frustrated by them. It took me about two years for me to actually be able to play them, but by then I had lost interest.

    Oh my gosh, Lilo and Stitch is 15 years old........already. It's awesome to see one of my favorite childhood cartoon characters become a Hot Topic icon, heck, I've been seeing Stitch more than GIR at that store lately. But on the other hand, it's very surreal for the franchise to get that old in such a seemingly short amount of time. If Lilo was a real person, she'd be able to drive now.

    I really cannot believe I'm 16 now (I know my birthday was over a month ago, but still). It feels like just yesterday I was sitting on the couch eating Fla-Vor-Ice popsicles and watching Wayside and Kappa Mikey on Nicktoons Network. That was in like 2008. Man, time sure flies.
