Heheh, I watched that tenth anniversary marathon without having that go through my head.
Sigh, I love Spongebob. But wow. Ten years. I was eleven…

You know what REALLY makes me feel old?
When I first saw Nintendo 64 gameplay and it was the most amazing thing I ever witnessed.

You kids are talking about “old things” that aren't that old.

I watched NEW episodes of Voltron and Thundercats. The TV stations were still playing Thunderhawks. I was entering high school when Power Rangers started. Pokemon was popular when I was a Junior. I got a Super Nintendo the Christmas of the year it came out.

I would watch new episodes of You Can't Do That on Television, Inspector Gadget and I remember when MTV started showing their “strange” line-ups of The Max, Eon Flux, and Beavis and Butthead were fresh/new. Hell, I remember seeing the last few new episodes of The A-Team. Yes, I remember the Mon-Chi-Chis


Born in 1980. I am the true 80's kid. Remembering when you watched Pokemon in Elementary school does not make you an 80's kid, it makes you a 90's kid.

My rule for dating girls is that if they don't remember Thundercats, we're not going to go out.

I'm not old, it's the others that are too young. ;)

Apparantly I was eleven too when it started. But it wasn't shown over here before long after that, so I really doubt it counts. I'll not even beging listing the things I remember from my childhood since a lot of them aren't going to make sense to you guys.

Okay, I'll mention one thing: I remember when Lego only consisted of colored bricks and the occasional little yellow man. No fancy electronical thingies or oddly shaped special anything. The manuals were the best part.
Because I may as well show a bit of pride. ^___^

Jeez, I remember waking up Saturday morning, running into the living room and being riveted by the action packed Video game block of Q-Bert, PacMan and Donkey Kong…
But yeah, Sponge Bob's getting up there too. It took me a *long* time to watch it, the idea of an animated square having its own show angered me more than it should have.

Same here, my brother watches it every hour of the day. I can't stand more than 5 seconds of it anymore. I doubt they'll cancel though, considering it's basically their only show that gets decent ratings.

I loved it, and it gets a bad rap today, but in all honesty I like the new stuff too. It's one of those shows that's for kids, but it's also got jokes for the rest of the family to enjoy if they're watching it with said child.

I just turned 18 on January, and I hate how people my age are already walking around going “UGH I'm so OLD,” because I'm a big supporter in “you're only as old as you feel,” and I don't see myself feeling too old anytime soon. However, for a minute or two, when I realized Spongebob has been around since I was in the 3rd grade…Yeah. I felt old.

I remember my uncle bringing in a Sega Genesis to our house when I was just about potty trained. I'm not exactly sure why I know that it was around then, but I just recall it being around that time.
I remember being absolutely fascinated by the spinning blue hedgehog in red shoes on the screen and asking him if I could play but I was told that it was probably too difficult for me.

The “French Erotic Film” animation has been around for about six years now.

I'm making friends with way younger kids and I'm glad that I'm able to give them new stuff to look up. I did the exact same when I was 12, but this is an even bigger age gap. Today I was telling a six year old about Taz Mania when she pointed to someone's spare tyre cover with Taz on it and said “Look! There's a monster!”.
She lost interest pretty quickly when I said I could show her episodes sometime. She didn't want it to stop her from watching the end of Flushed Away that she'd waited two weeks to see.

Maybe I'll show her them next time?

Oh, here's another one…

The date of the events of “Dino Crisis” is now THE PAST when at the time it was released it was set a decade in the future.

“Clarissa Explains It All” was a brand new show when I was in JR High or something…or about to enter it.

Hell…I remember begging people to take me to see Jurassic Park because I was too young to have money of my own. Finally my aunt and uncle took me. I remember trying to watch it and keep my baby cousin, Cailey, occupied enough to sit through the movie quietly with them. She's a senior in high school now and her younger sister is a freshman. THAT makes me feel old.

The Simpsons have been around like twice that long!

I'm only twenty years old and I feel old sometimes just from being around stupid ass teenagers. Maybe I'm a little jaded. I just see them and laugh to myself that they're going to learn what the real world is like and then they won't act like they know everything.

Whoops, that was off topic. Sorry, got carried away there.

Back to the subject at hand, yeah, sometimes I feel old when I think about that stuff. But then I go eat a bunch of candy and watch cartoons all day.


;)

As long as we don't think about it much we will be okay… Now when you start pooping your pants, start to worry.
I need a sig with Rabitato… I will make one soon.

Everything makes me feel old.%(

This.

In fact, I'm so old, Spongebob was around for about 5 years before I even knew who he was!

Eh, not really. I was 8 when it came out. Pretty amazing the show has been around so long (even though the post-movie episodes aren't as good)

You know you're old when the music you used to listen to in high school is getting compiled for sale on infomercials. Or at least the music that was popular when you were on high school…

They've made a new series of Roobarb and Custard.

I used to watch that even though it was old then.

It's not the same now that they have a load of new characters and a wooden computer in a shed…

10 years went by fast! I can remember the first day it aired. I was 5 and my sister was 7, and a couple of days after we had just learned that there was a Pokemon animated series, we learned about Spongebob too. However, Pokemon and the spongebob premiere were on at the same time. So, I watched Pokemon and my sister watched Spongebob, then afterwards we told each other about it, haha!

Yeah, I have a lot of memories from Spongebob since that basically was -the- show of my childhood. When my dad had to commute from Philly to Chicago every week when he first started at his current job and I was having a hard to dealing with it, he used to watch spongebob over the phone with me and my siblings. Yeah, thems were some great times. Too bad a bunch of the original Spongebob writers left and took their talent with them.
