Feel Old Yet?
Now that we’re in high school, it’s nice to look back on the things we used to like as kids. Unfortunately, this forces us to acknowledge the fact that we’re a lot older now. It hurts a little to see how much things have changed.
The “Powerpuff Girls” T.V. show premiered in 1998, 14 years ago, and the movie was released in 2002, 10 years ago. The series now runs on Boomerang alongside shows such as “Johnny Bravo” and “Dexter’s Laboratory.”
Bands like Blink 182, Bowling for Soup and the Foo Fighters have songs now considered “vintage” by radio stations. The Foo Fighters originally got together in 1994, and Blink 182 has had time to get together, beak-up and get back together.
“SpongeBob SquarePants” premiered in 1999 and is still running. Try comparing the pilot episode to the newest. Things have changed.
“All That” originally premiered in 1994, and launched the careers of actors such as Kenan Thompson, Amanda Bynes and Jamie Lynn Spears. It is also the name of the TeenNick programming block, “The 90’s are All That,” which airs shows such as “Rocko’s Modern Life,” “Hey Arnold” and “Doug.”
“The Fairly Odd Parents” originally premiered in 2001 and has recently been revived with a ninth season in production.
It’s nice to see some of our favorite shows from our childhood still on somewhere. When they’re on programming like Boomerang or “The 90’s are All That,” it really proves that things are not the same as when we were kids.
