Captain Planet: Pollution 0

One of the “coolest” shows back then for me (I’m a bit of a nerd, so forgive me. Haha.) was Captain Planet. He comes alive through the use of the rings of 5 kids who care about the planet. The rings were given by Gaia, she’s like the mother nature or something (but the name actually came from Greek mythology).

Anyhoo, the contrabidas who, aside from the usual contrabida hulabaloos (stealing/kidnapping/etc), are also somewhat obssessed with ruining the earth (pollution/poaching/etc).

What’s funny though is that, Captain Planet fights the pollution but its also what makes him weak. He needs the help of the 5 kids to save him whenever he gets into contact with pollution. Thinking about it now, the show was actually teaching the kids (that’s us!) that in order to get something done right, people like us need to help too and not just rely on some superhero! Though I don’t think it actually it made any difference, some things (the bad ones pa) are still there. Hmm. Anywaaaay, I really liked the ending song of the show also! Nakaka-LSS din, just like the one from Denver the Last Dinosaur.

Feel good song for everyone

Hey guys! Here’s a treat for everyone feeling down lately. Always remember you’ve got friends by your side to help you through tough times. I know I’ve got mine and I’m truly thankful!

Here’s a music video from the movie “Now and Then” with the song “Connected”

Denver The Last Dino!

Hey Guys! Do you remember that dinosaur which plays the guitar?! Haha. I have to say that this show was one of my favorites, just because of the hypnotic song. It was soo catchy and cute that it makes you wanna watch kasi parang “anong kwento nito?“, and also kasi walang ibang okay na show. Hmm. I bet you all remember the song! Do you guys know the whole lyrics?

Family Computer

Before the playstation, nintendo, xbox..we had the family computer. It was just the arrow keys and the buttons a and b. The games were in a cassette looking container.

My favorite game back then was battle city. It was a tank game. The players had to destroy the enemy tanks and prevent them from shooting the eagle.There are some flashing enemy tanks which carried power ups. My favorite was the star, it changes the look of your tank and you can shoot faster.

Whats your favorite family computer game? 🙂

It was a teenage thrill to answer and read through autographs. I myself owned two or three kinds back in elementary. It was fun to read through secrets and watching people divulge information about themselves.

In reality, autographs were my scheme (yes, I was a scheming school girl) to get to know the boys in my grade who were cute. At that time of course, I thought that autographs were a subtle way of asking a person about his personal life.

The first signees of my autograph book would be of course, my nearest and dearest friends. They would willingly allow me to violate their privacy. We had an unspoken agreement that I would ask my friends’ crushes to sign while they get my crush to do the same. What happens after the swapping of information is that the boys would accidentally-on-purpose read who likes who. And that’s where the fun begins.

Would you care to sign this autograph?

Fall In Line!

Teachers had this funny way of organizing us kids back in elementary. Whenever we had to go to the auditorium, the teacher would shepherd us outside the classroom and tell us to fall in line. It was, I think, a pre-COCC training.

Fall in line!

At the count of ONE, we were supposed to raise our arms forward. Sergeant-at-arms (they got into position because they sucked up to the teacher) would inspect the line of the boys’ and girls’ lines. These mini-sergeants would tap your arms sternly if you didn’t straighten them enough.

The moment Teacher says “TWO”, we have to drop our arms to our sides. THREE says tuck your arms behind your back while FOUR means ‘zip your mouth’ (insert zipping motion). FIVE would mean you can begin walking.

I remember one of my classmates falling out of line and these sergeant-at-arms, brown nosers that they were, would tell Teacher. Those who would be wandering off without the permission would automatically receive the honor of walking astride Teacher.

Just out of curiosity, which kind of kid were you? The delinquent or the goody-goody? I have to admit, I’m more of the latter (it has been my deepest dream to become a sergeant-at-arms!).

RSS Return of the Nineties by Kidswereus

  • Kidswereus Recalls (and ambitiously recommends) March 4, 2008
    It’s been a year since we’ve begun this blog. Wahoo! It’s time to bring back the love to the next batch of SEO experts, bloggers, and internet marketers! This year’s theme is more social-oriented. I guess this idea came from our professor who thinks that the Internet is more than an all-in-one medium that integrates […]
  • Pop Swatch! November 1, 2007
    They were funky, overly large, and well cute.  The Pop Swatch was born in the 80’s but it got to Manila during the nineties. My cousin was obsessed with collecting all the straps that would match. We would always pass by Gift Gate in the Greenhills Shopping Arcade so that we would see the new […]
  • Oh Tokyo! October 29, 2007
    The show’s goal was simple: to give the Pinoys an overview of the Japanese culture. We love it for the host’s flawless translation of Japanese to Filipino. It also helps that she speaks in a sing-song voice while she asks the Tokyo-dwellers about their day-to-day living. Sad to say, this show stopped airing in RJ […]

  • For kicks: Guess this 90s Telenovela October 27, 2007
    The year was 1998 and we, as a nation, have just recovered from the Thalia telenovela avalanche. We needed a change of pace so here’s a soap whose heroine is a child. Her height is as tiny as her voice! I love her show-gum smile and lengthy lashes. The story was interesting in the beginning: […]
