I was tagged by Fred from his blog called This is my place. I was born in the 90s and as a kid, I thought life was simple. I was a kid who spent hours on cartoons and games and going to elementary school. All I cared about was fun and nothing much going on in the world.

Favorite TV Show
Before we had shows like iCarly, Victorious and Henry Danger, we had some funny shows growing up. Before Drake and Josh, we had two teens named Kenan and Kel. These funny actors also appeared in the movie Good Burger. Another weird, but funny show was The Amanda Show. Hosted by Amanda Bynes, we had teens perform funny skits such as a parody of Judge Judy and fake infomercials about selling pants that cook popcorn and buying a homework in a pseudo pizza delivery service. Before we had Tom Kenny acting as Patchy the Pirate trying to meet his hero SpongeBob (also voiced by Ton Kenny), we had Amanda acting as an obsessed fan named Penelope and trying to meet Amanda Bynes (herself).
Favorite 90s song
Anytime I heard the Indigo League of Pokemon opening song, I just jump around in excitement. As a kid, I wanted to be a Pokemon trainer like Ash and have my own Pikachu and go on adventures. This song resonates within me and this series was a gateway to watching anime. At this time, I saw this and believed it was a cartoon.
As a kid in a tender age, I love playing with my N64 and playing hours of Mario Party and Super Mario 64. When I saw this commercial of Super Smash Bros 64, I thought it was funny idea to have all these characters come together and fight. I always like picking Mario or Pikachu and beating up the other characters. This was my favorite game growing up and this game made me enjoy the other Smash games from the series (excluding Smash 4 for Wii U/3DS since I never owned any of those platforms).
*NSYNC or Backstreet Boys?
I hardly paid attention to these two bands, but I vaguely remember the song Bye Bye Bye sung by *NSYNC.
Favorite Music Artist?
I didn’t have any favorites.
What did I collect?
I collected the old Pokemon cards. I didn’t know how to play them, but I did like having them.
How many Tamagotchis did you go thru?
I don’t think I ever had my own friend. I think the only I got was a kids meal toy of them.
Favorite video game and console?
I like playing both the Nintendo 64 and the Playstation 1. On the N64, I would play Super Mario 64 and on the PS1, it was both the Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon series.
Favorite cereal toy, 90s crush growing up? Favorite Disney Channel movie?
I don’t remember my favorite cereal toy, but I do remember eating Trix, Cookie Crips and Fruit Loops. I didn’t have a crush on anyone, not I had a favorite Disney Channel movie.
Favorite cartoon show?
Likewise to Fred’s answer, this is a tough question. I used to watch Animaniacs and Pinky and the Brain; I used to watch Tiny Toons as well. The majority of the time, it was the 90s Nickelodeon cartoons like Rugrats, Ren and Stimpy, Doug, and Hey Arndold.
Weirdest fashion trend?
I never paid attention to fashion. I was just a kid at that time.
I really enjoyed my Woody doll from Toy Story. I really loved the movie.
Disney, Nick, or Cartoon Network?
Disney came first because I always watched the movies like The Lion King, Aladdin and Snow White. My love of animation came from Disney. Nick came along much later and I used to watch cartoons on the old TV in the living room, Cartoon Network didn’t appear in my life until much later in elementary school. Once I got into CN, I watched Powerpuff Girls, Ed, Edd’n Eddy and Johnny Bravo.
Early morning/weekend shows would you watch?
Anyone remember the Kids WB? I probably watched shows like Batman Beyond, Tiny Toons and Animaniacs.
Favorite McDonald’s Happy Meal toy? What would you watch when you got home from school?
There is one toy I still have and it’s my treasure. I have a Pokemon keychain of Sandslash from Burger King. I used to carry it around when I was in elementary school, high school and college.
It would probably be Dr. Seuss books like Cat-in-the Hat and Are You My Mother.
Favorite thing from the 90s that is not around today?
The candy treat Wonder Ball.
I tag these three people. Anyone not listed can join in the fun! Any other 90s peeps?
