    Nobody understands why I think it's funny to say that. I remember almost everything from that list... it was fun being a kid in the '80's /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    You forgot to mention the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Heeman and Hulk Hogan among some of the things I remember in the '80's
