Let’s take a look at the 90’s,
An interesting decade filled with whimsical “niceties”.
Playing Mario, collecting mushrooms,
Watching the little red man jump across my screen could literally make my day.
Less violent cartoons: Powerpuff Girls,
C’mon seriously where else in the world do you get superheroes that help open pickle jars?
Teletubbies was my jam,
Having television on our bellies, that was my childhood dream.
Popeye the Sailorman,
My grandmother used to relate him to make me eat my vegetables. Genius.
Tetris but it was way cooler back then,
When you see another guy with the same big “Gameboy”, you just felt this instant connection.
“I’m a Barbie girl in a Barbie world”,
I know I wasn’t the only one singing that in the shower, right? 😉
The Goosebumps series, the amazing brainchild of R.L.Stine,
He made you gasped, cringed, and most importantly, be aware of Slappy, he might just be near……
Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera came into the limelight,
The battle of the divas commenced, who was your favourite?
Mr. Bean, of course, who else!
An amazing guy who could just reduce us to laughter even without uttering a single word. #HeadInTurkey #Mop-controlledDriving
The Spice Girls invaded the world stage in some seriously flashy outfits,
Scary, Baby, Ginger, Sporty and Posh, the British girl power certainly taught us the word of “Wannabe”.
Two words: Carrie Bradshaw,
We lost count on how many trends this character single-handedly started.
The 90’s was a decade with amazing hipster fashion,
Welcome to the era of scrunchies and………HIGH PANTS!!!
With just the right blend of quirky fashion and breakthrough technology,
The 90’s was a great nostalgic moment that gave us courage to explore new frontiers.
Thank you 90’s for being such an inspiration, the world is forever in debt to you. #Throwback90’s
