Ah, the commercials. Chewing gum commercials for Big Red (Go Big Red!), Juicy Fruit, and Double Mint gum were so musical. Got milk? Maybe not, but I found not one but two commercials that explained how milk does the body good. Then there was the toy that needs no introduction.
What about the quality programming between the commercials, you may ask? While not eating magic mushrooms or spitting balls of fire, Mario used to give dance lessons. Terrorists were fought by real American heroes, and for those that preferred taking down evil ninjas, there were heroes in a half shell. Cowabunga!
90’s television hit just as I was entering my wonder years. Hey dude, isn’t that Ben Stiller’s wife? I still watched cartoons, some of which inspired me to start keeping a journal, and another that would one day inspire me to try and take over the world.
Sure, it’s all cheesy junk, but it made my day.
