Post things you miss from when you were a kid. I'll start. I remember watching WWF on Saturday morning and eating 3 bowls of this garbage. It was around 1990 when I was 10 years old.

I've been looking for this commercial for ages! I still remember the jingle. I used to get it all the time when it was still in stores... ...now I kind of miss it. KF

the mysterious cities of gold. i used to have an illustrated book about it, and i was so young that i don't remember watching it--but the sound of the theme song makes me feel like such a child. but i don't really MISS it. i miss nothing from being a kid. childhood sucked.

Nobi, you have to be kidding. My siblings and I love this movie. I still get chills when watching the ending... Such a creepy movie and Kuruku is the coolest Villian ever.

I know, right? Kuruku shoots frickin' lasers from his finger tips and floats around with that creepy laugh! XD

This must have been my first anime when I was like... five. D:
My siblings and I loved this. Along with Seabert the Seal and Scamper the Penguin!

The Serendipity books by Steven Cosgrove were awesome too. :)

First computer that I can remember. (Dad actually bought his first computer in 1972, but that was before my time.)

serendipity was my first fanart. i used to see the books at daycare--and -Fatal Hopper- the books, i didn't care about them, but the cute, fat, pink little sea monster in the beginning of each was so cute, i had to draw her.

i gave away my serendipity DvD to some girls i babysat for. i have no idea if they liked it. they better have.

Serendipity.... pink sea monster thing... that's sounding almost familiar. Not so much from my childhood as my sister's, though, perhaps. Or maybe it was mine after all; I seem to ever so vaguely recall reading a children's book when I was ten or so that was part of a series of self-contained stories, one of which was actually about a pink female thing named Serendipity. The book I remember was actually about a world that was all silver and gold and crystal and no color, until the pegasus (Lightasoar?) found a rose seed in some dirt and nurtured it against the wishes of everyone else until the rose bloomed and from that day forth there was color in the land that wasn't just blue and white and gold. I always had mixed feelings about that story, because while I can certainly appreciate the bringing of color to a dull, drab world (a big reason why I was excited about Okami from the moment I saw a trailer), the world as depicted was already quite beautiful in its glittering austerity. Not to mention the moral was applied with a very heavy hand. And I think I was old enough to know that crystal would refract light and so there'd be rainbows everywhere already. Targetting a story at children is no excuse for illogic. :P

Oh hey, I remember Serendipity. I went back and watched it for kicks with some friends, actually, and was surprised that I had completely forgotten how Captain Smudge points a gun at little Bobby during one scene.

It's incredible how much kids' movies have changed since then.
