Gather round kiddies we're goin' back. Way back.
Does anyone remember Mr. Goodbody? He popped into my head one day. He wore that body suit of his insides. And it had 2 sides, one showed his muscles, one showed his organs. When he ate, he'd show how it travled through his body by pointing to himself. 16 years later, here I am remembering. He must have been good! I guess he's still traveling around. I bet it isn't long before some uptight bitch reports him for ruining her childs life, because he might as well be 'naked'.
I'm really suprised it was so hard to locate a picture of him. There are some in his infamous suite on his site above. Back when there use to be that way fun website "Yesterdayland" I bet he'd have been on there. Did anyone else love that website? It was like a myspace for your childhood. I had all my favorite 80's shows, fashions, songs, toys, singers, cartoons. And it had PICTURES of them all! This was about 3-4 years back. Someone tried to remake it. It's now called Retroland. But, I can't get it to load.
What shows did I like? Alf, Small Wonder, Silver Spoons, Webster, Mr. Belvedere, Kate & Ally, Just the 10 of Us, Facts of Life, Riptide, Square Pegs!
Remember when Saturday morning, from 8-12 was all about cartoons? The Shirt Tales, Richie Rich, Bugs Bunny, Pound Puppies, Dungeons and Dragons, Kidd Video, Smurfs, Getalong Gang, Wuzzles, Gummi Bears, Snorks, Muppet Babies, Hello Kitty, Pee Wee's Playhouse, Garfield.
I think a lot of kids don't have to use their imagination. Like, we had to make our Barbie car move, now they move on their own. I didn't have one anyways, I had the Sunshine Family van. They were hippies. I think they werea hand-me-down of my sisters. But I did have Barbies. But the sunshine family had eyes that if you squeezed their heads, they would pop out. Relax, they were pegs, I put them back in!
My favorite doll was my friend Becky. You could wash her hair! She didn't talk. I had to make her talk. I learned the future prevention of the west nile virus, with my way cool game, swat the mosquito. Kids today play stuff online. A fun thing for me to do was pretend my closet was an elevator. Herself the elf, I even had crayons shaped like her! Fashion plates, were cool. The backs of the clothe plates even had different textures to make the clothes have patterns. Those are real toys! I got a Hello Kitty fashion plate set recently. It's pretty generic!
Know what they had at Old Navy? Flowered jeans. Yep. I sported a white pair with pink and blue flowers. And a black pair with dark flowers. Bitchin dudes! They also had those terry cloth one peice jumpers that have a halter top. My mom always wore one. Gay. I never thought this would happen to me. Fashions coming back. I never thought any of the fashions from my day were particularly cool. Tapered jeans? High top sneakers? Of course, if the high tops had velcro, you had to not use it, and attach it back on itself, that was the cool thing to do.
This is a fun website if your into re-living the 80's too!
What's your favorite childhood memories?
(In your face Chris Daughtry haters, my boy's movin onnnnn!!!)
