    Sheah, I can remember when Bugs Bunny and Road runner cartoons weren't censored for their violence!!!


    I can also remember being 12 years old when Star Wars [and yes, it was only called star wars not Star Wars - A New Hope] came out for the first time. I was the first kid in Yuba City to see it 100 times. I still have the news paper clipping (somewhere)

    Now I am on 2967. Just 33 more times and I hit the big 3000 for view Star Wars Ep4! Woot!

    I'll forever remember my older friends wanting to see Back To The Future III while I was the only one who wanted to see the Turtles movie. That was a fun day.

    The actor who played Doogie, however, is scarred for life...he'll never escape that role. I remembering seeing him play the somewhat sinister intelligence guy in "Starship Troopers," and the whole theater is like "DOOOGIE!" Hehe.

    Don't forget the Doogster is now the voice of spider-man/peter parker on the new cartoon on MTV.

    which is a great cartoon by the way.

    Ahh I remember being in love with christy gold from growning pains...which was odd since everyone compared me to Mike on the show.

    It's funny I was never into Daisy Duke..I guess i like to corupt the good girls into doing bad things..that and I was afriad Cooter would want to play the squeel like a pig game with me.
