Spongebob came out basically at that point in life where I thought I was too “old” for cartoons, but before I got old enough to realize how immature it is to dismiss an entire genre just based on what it looked like. I still watched other stuff: anime, action shows, what have you, but I tended to avoid Nickelodeon and Disney stuff whenever it came up. Apparently I missed some good stuff, but I think I'll be allright.

They don't show cartoons on Cartoon Network (CN) anymore either.

Billy vs. Tree – The epic struggle of boy versus tree.
Sonic Colores – It looks like it's going to be a good game because I love how the way it makes me grow.

I remember back when Nickelodeon was all about Rugrats and Aah Real Monsters. Heck, I remember back when Nickelodeon made toys! Anyone else remember gak? That stuff was the best.

Sesame Street is almost as old as Apollo 11, and I still remember the countless obscure Muppet characters, catchy songs, and psychedelic cartoons that graced the program back in the day. Sadly, Sesame Street has changed a lot since some of us last saw it, as evidenced by this clip:



Wait, that's not bad; that's hilariously ingenious! lol!
Renga: How are you everyone !!
Renga: All your weather are control by me.
Renga: I has a weather machine.

What makes me feel old is that I remember Thunder Cats, Beast Wars Transformers, and when DragonballZ and Sailormoon first came out. Also Gaiaonline. I mean its filled with 15 and under year olds. Why am I still there? Have no idea but I am.

You know, I always liked sponge bob. I wanted him and Sandy the squirrel to get it on.
Never happened :(

I felt old the day I was talking about Ren & Stimpy and my 5 year younger brother looked at me like he didn't have the slightest clue what I was talking about. I felt old the day that they stopped showing Tom and Jerry on Cartoon Network during afternoon hours, because it was “outdated”. But I don't think Spongebob Squarepants will ever make me feel old, even though it is a surprise that it's been on that long.

think you just asked for a rule 34 on this. which as always, is 99.9% NSFW (.1% going to the people who find this okay at certain places of employment)

i remember when nickelodeon stopped airing live action, and went back into cartoons. and then became upset that the new live action sucked when they started that back up.

No, not really. Then again, I was only 9 years old when Spongebob came out.

10 years? holy shit. I remember, I was 7, and I taped every 130-odd episodes of spongebob back in the days when videos we're still around. But does anyone remember Cat-Dog?

Hey guess what? Tom and Jerry was created in 1940-57! And i still grew up on that cartoon.
Me and my friends discovered spongebob in that age, when only girls still liked it because it was ‘awwww cute’. We watched all the episodes and felt at least five years younger. The moral of this story: its not how many candles you have on your cake, its how you feel! Ofcource until your teeth wont start falling out… than youre old like hell…
Wacom (yes the company that sells graphic tablets that many of you use) is friggin 26 years old!

what??? I loved that show!

unless you'd prefer not to because it was so good you can't bring yourself to think about it because it is over… I mean I can understand that.

I was seven. Actually, I don't feel old. I feel conflicted.

So, when is Nick going to make the “Spongebob turns human” series to celebrate ten years? -_-

I remember, I was 7,

no wait, 10 years ago I was five. But that can't be right. OOOHHHH, In Australia we probably got Spongebob later than in America, I never had cable so no nickelodean for me.

I remember going downstairs on a Saturday morning early, so that I could watch the b&w Abbot and Costello as well as the Three Stooges, then I'd catch Tom and Jerry, the Looney Toons, the Smurfs, the Snorks (anyone remember THAT one?) and a few others.

Hell, anyone remember the Mon-Chi-Chis? I remember being FASCINATED by that as a small kid.

My first Atari came in a faux-wood casing, had levers on the top, and was the most beautiful thing I'd seen to that point in my life. River Raid was an obsession.

… I would have killed in order to purchase an intellivision so I could play the Dungeons and Dragons game that was only available on it.

And my first computer plugged into the TV.

you know what makes me feel old? being 22.

Spongebob came out when I was 12, apparently. That makes me feel a little better (I almost did a double take, cuz I thought I was like 15 when it came out… 25?! SO OLD TOO OLD!!)

The fact that I am now, and will always be older than Harry Potter (book 7 he's what, 19?) is disturbing. (I guess I'm really NOT going to Hogwarts…)

Oh, cool you had the heavy 6 switch atari didn't you?

Also, one thing I've discovered is that a great way to feel young is spend your time collecting and playing games older than you are. So, for me, that's atari and most of NES.

That long? Why couldn't Pinky and the Brain or Freakazoid have lasted that long? *sigh*

I am cursed to remember all of these crappy series but nothing comes close to the genius of Chuck Jones and Tex Avery. Heck I was the manager of a video department when Barney and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers first came on video and Sega Genesis… still have my Sonic and Knuckles Tee-shirt.

The thing was a beast, yes… I *THINK* it had six silvery switches on the top, but can't quite remember.

And if I wanted to collect games that are older than I am, I'd have to go digging in Egyptian ruins and the like. :p

Same here. I remember playing computer games recorded on cassette tapes and wishing that one day a Hard drive would be 1 Megabyte. A geek friend (now a multi-millionaire consultant with a harem) would whisper “giga” and we'd say we'd never live to see it. lol!

That was around the same time I was building model airplanes and selling them to the Annunaki in Ur.

10 years… is that all?

I remember the days when Nickelodeon was just OLD re-runs, and syndicated stuff … Would turn on Nick to watch:

The Monkees
Dennis the Menace (the old black and white live action)
You Can't Do That on Television
Mr. Wizard's World (SCIENCE)
Inspector Gadget
Heathcliff
Rocky and Bullwinkle

and Nick at Night wasn't George Lopez episodes from last year, but frickin Mr. Ed and the Honeymooners…

Then eventually original stuff like the Adventures of Pete and Pete, Clarissa Explains it All, Doug, and Rocko's Modern Life showed up… oh and that Ren and Stimpy show. :)
