    but not as good as the original though. it just doesn't seem like a wholesome family show. that's just my opinion though.

    I miss the 90s so much!

    !! We had such great tv shows, movies, toys and MUSIC! Music was better than today's crap. I feel sorry for today's kids. I only lived in the 90s the first eight years of my life (1991-1999) but I remember most things.

    Growing Up In The 90's Was Awesome!!!

    I was born in 1988 so I got to enjoy the 90's. I'm sure in some aspects it was no better then, than it is now, but as a child in the era it seemed as if life was more simple and people were more at peace then. I miss those good ole days :)

    TMNT, Classic Nick, Snick, and Columbine

    First and foremost - if you were born in the 90's you're not a 90's kid. If you weren't alive to see TMNT the movie and call to Mikie in the sewers, you didn't live the 90's. Strange times, the 90's were. Movies changed, the music changed in every scene, the world changed. We...

    No Era Will Ever Be As Great As The 90'S 💜

    Even though I was born in 1995 I still remember what it was like to be part of the 90's... In the 90's it was ok to be different... You could wear what you wanted to wear... Listen to what you wanted to listen to... Growing up in the 90's there was no such thing as cyber bullying...
