Man, it's been a long time since anyone posted in this thread. Bumping because Q reminded me of something awesome.

In the UK there's a BBC series called Look and Read, which is a collection of fictional serials designed to teach young children to read. In 1989 (when I'd just started school) they aired a series called Through The Dragons Eye. This show was The Shit. Three children get sucked through a mural into a fantasy world named Pelamar, which is dying due to destruction of the Veetacore, the lifeforce of Pelamar. The children team up with the dragon Gorwen, three multi-coloured people and an extremely gay mouse to rebuild the Veetacore.

Except standing in their way is the villain, Charn, who gave everyone of my generation nightmares. He was a pure evil undead-bird-wizard-thing that actually murdered several characters on-screen.

Here's the final battle between Gorwen and Charn. Yes, those are rotten entrails hanging out of Charn's ribcage.



This was an educational show for 5 year olds.

They don't make them like this anymore!

Woah......Necropost of champions. Last post before the bump was in 2010.

ANYWAYS, the following made me happy and sad at the same time.

A couple days ago I decided to watch The Secret of Nimh. Great movie, if you haven't watched it you should.




Then the Easter dinner happened soon after. I have these cousins that are a pair of twins, many years younger then I am. I said to my sister that I watched The Secret of Nimh the previous night. The twins look at me with a funny look and went "What's that?". I sadfaced, felt old, and brought up Rock-a-doodle-doo. They didn't know that one either. I felt OLD.

Don't feel old and don't feel sad, this is your chance to educate them!

...If they don't like it, THEN you should feel sad.

I told them they had to go and watch it since they have Netflix and can do it easy. If they did or not, I don't know.

I really wish I could remember more about this tv show. I recognize the opening sequence, but nothing else.

If it makes you feel any better, last weekend I was volunteering at a retro computer event. I was thrashing playing some kids at Pokemon Stadium 2 on the N64 and this exchange happened:

"Wow, you're really good at this! How did you get so good at Pokemon??"
"....How old are you?"
"I'm 8!"
"...I was playing Pokemon before you were born." Sad

Later followed by a kid telling me he remembered the Gamecube coming out. Gawd.

I would say that Rock-a-doodle-doo would be more obscure than The Secret of Nimh.

Especially since the latter is a fairly famous and well-read book.

I remember the N64 coming out. Razz

I also just realized my sister is now the same age I was when I experienced my first rejection.

Granted, I don't remember it coming out, but when I was a kid the main consoles were the super nintendo and the sega genesis. I required the genesis because it had Sonic on it, and Sonic is probably what got me into gaming in the first place. Hence the fanboy-ness towards the Sonic games.

Dumping from the depths because look what's back in the shops!



Vice-Versas! I loved these as a kid and they've relaunched them again! It's a mixture of milk chocolate in a white chocolate shell and white chocolate in a milk chocolate shell. They're rather nice. They're slightly different colours now since I guess they can't pump them full of E numbers anymore, but oh well.

Now if only they'd bring back Fuse bars...

Hah, I just had a massive nostalgia trip when someone mentioned Koei games to me. I freaking loved Dynasty Warriors 5 and Samurai Warriors 1.

I just flicked on TV to get the new Pokemon anime (my sister wouldn't let me watch it because she wanted to watch LazyTown, no culture I tell you) and Team Rocket's voices are pretty different, which just hit me with a wave of nostalgia for the first season.

Today, however, I'm babysitting my five year old sister and we are going to watch movies together which, if I have my way, will be mostly Disney based and will give me prime opportunity to feel nostalgic for when I was five years old and could wear pyjamas all day and watch movies.

Nostalgia you say? This. I love this movie.



I watch this every Halloween with my cousins. It's a kind of ritual we have.

Oh man you guys, I couldn't quite decide where to post this, but considering the nostalgia rush I got from watching it I figure I'd post it here even though it's a parody.

Oh wow.....Magic School Bus. That used to be a thing when I was really, really young. Baseball without friction would be funny. Visible sound waves? Aw yeah.

One hell of a necropost, but I need to share this.

The other night I was reading a thread about old obscure cartoons and somebody mentioned Captain Star. I vaguely remember watching it as a kid, so found some episodes on youtube. My God, I didn't realise what a brilliant cartoon this was. It's one that just gets funnier the older you are; I actually laughed out loud several times in each episode. It also has some seriously dark implications as to exactly why Captain Star is stuck on a crappy planet at the end of the universe which completely escaped me first time round. Have a watch and see what you think:
