I instantly felt that pang of pity for them because they’re not as famous anymore. And to paraphrase what Jomari Yllana said in the vid, they’re no longer recognized by the teens of today. So sad. But at least Direk Johnny still knows them.
One of the amusing superheroes of the 90s was The Tick. I used to watch it on RPN 9 with my brother (who introduced me to the show), we’d always laugh at this superhero’s antics and depth (yes! he talks about stuff that are somewhat not what you get from the typical superhero). The show was great because it was something different from all the spiderman/woman, batman and superman cartoons proliferating the tv stations back then. In case you guys kinda have no idea what I’m talking about (nooooooo!) or have forgotten who this guy is, watch the video! Its hilarious!
Ok, hold your horses people! I’m pretty sure you know who Arthur is (i.e. if you have cable and all – i channel). This was one of my favorite shows because it just tells you what a kid goes through during his childhood. Fighting with your siblings (and getting along with them!), having friends, fitting in school, raising parents (hehe!), and just dealing with whatever kids deal with! In the show all of the characters were animals, can u guys identify what types of animals were there (without using Google ah!)?
Well, that’s kinda hard. Since I wouldn’t know either. Hehe. But I really loved this show. 🙂
Who can ever forget this hit song which started in the late 90’s? It’s all time favorite Britney Spears with her 1st hit song “Baby One More Time”
This was the show that made my Saturday mornings substantial and interesting. I was able to learn a lot of things that were helpful, not only to the school/academic stuff, but they made the idea of learning cool (probably one of the reasons why I became a nerd. Haha). They featured places, people and new stuff in a manner that was really relate-able to kids, since their anchors were kids. Hmm. I even know a few people who only watch 5andUp because of a certain cutie. Hehe.
Anyhoo, if you wanna get updates on the show and its members, you can find then at this site: http://www.probeprod.com/5andup/about. You can even be a contributor to their site and add articles, that is if they approve of your membership. But if you were and Upper or an Uppie you can easily be a part of the site. 🙂
If Sega had Sonic and Nintendo had Mario, back then, Sony had CRASH BANDICOOT. Crash Bandicoot was one of the first platform games which rocked the world. The game had cool levels, outrageous enemies, and lots of FUN. What was cool about it was that Crash had the ability to become invincible with some mask he needed to wear. (Aboombaga!)
Kick, punch, it’s all in the mind. If you want me to teach ya, I’ll do ya fine. Chop, chop, chop! –Master Onion
These are the famous lines in one of the most popular casual rhythm-based button-mashing addicting game of all time – Parappa the Rapper! This first rhythm-based PS1 game had a simple story with the easiest mission: press the corresponding buttons at the correct time.
By doing so, Parappa, who happens to be a paper-thin rapping dog, would progress in the story and complete his mission of winning the heart of his lover, Sunny Funny. Oh my gosh! HAHA! Simple as it may sound, this game is best remembered for its unique gameplay, cool graphic design, outrageous characters, and crazy plot.
