Getting slimed since ’89

Choice excerpts from Thought Catalog‘s “What Your Favorite 90’s Cartoon Says About You“:

Hey Arnold

You were cool, you were hip, and you fully accepted that Arnold just wore a skirt over his jeans for some reason. You were riding public transportation by yourself at 7, and were totally down to play pickup basketball with the neighborhood hobos. The idea of growing up in a boarding house with manic-depressive Eastern European immigrants and your senile grandparents seems appealing to you. There is a strong chance you are now living in Brooklyn.


You didn’t know it at the time, but you were in for a lifetime of being friendzoned and wearing Dockers. If you identified with Doug, you probably got relatively good grades and weren’t a first-round draft pick for kickball. Also, you thought black people were turquoise until college.

Ed, Edd N Eddy

There are more bongs in your apartment than kitchen appliances.


You didn’t have friends, but, man, did you have a lot of Pokemon cards. This show became like a religion to you, taking over your entire life. There was no such thing as a “casual Pokemon fan.” You either were or you weren’t, and you accepted the general ostracizing from mainstream middle-school society that came with it. Your classmates didn’t understand you, and they probably still don’t, but one day Dragonite is going to fly down from that lighthouse thing and take you away to where everything is beautiful and nothing hurts.”
