Now this is how you do a throwback jersey.
1. The Fresno Grizzlies, an affiliate of the San Francisco Giants, will be wearing TMNT-inspired uniforms on August 2, according to the team’s Twitter account.
Before Xbox, PlayStation, and smartphones there was just Nintendo. Even non-gamers will remember the catchy tune to the Nintendo classic, Super Mario Bros 2.
Looking like they came straight outta 1996, the dance crew sings and dances about all the great nostalgic ‘stuff’ from the 90′s, like Lunchables, Boy Meets World, and the war in Kosovo.
Wait… Kosovo? We’re only covering happy, fun stuff from the 90′s that promote fond memories. Nothing bad ever happened in the 90′s, remember?
The PBS animated afternoon program ‘Arthur’ may have taught us life lessons for over 200 episodes, but that doesn’t mean it left us totally prepared. Here are some lessons ’Arthur’ dropped the ball on.
1. We All Die Alone
Arthur had a whole school full of friends, a loving family, and a loyal dog, but even after 17 seasons, they never managed to do an episode showing the fact that, even if you’re gripping your spouse’s hand in the hospital bed, you ultimately slip away and face that great unknown with no one else beside you.
2. Time Takes Everything
Like most kids’ shows, Arthur hit the reset button at the end of every episode and got things more or less back to the status quo. Sure, he celebrated a few birthdays, but Pal stayed a puppy, the Tibble Twins remained annoying toddlers, and third grade seemed to go on forever. These are lies. Everything we know, everything we love, is devoured by the insatiable beast of entropy. Friends move. Romances end. Pets die.
3. Religion Is No Comfort
A progressive show right out of the gate, Arthur devoted seasonal holiday episodes to showing the diverse cast of kids celebrating Hanukkah, Ramadan, Kwanzaa, and even an agnostic student welcoming in the Winter Solstice. What it failed to point out is that all of these superstitions and token memorials are just social constructs designed to subjugate the lower classes and/or perpetuate the illusion of an orderly universe. “Happy” Holidays.
4. What Matt Damon Might Look Like As Other Animals
Sure, celebrity guest star Matt Damon may have stopped by Elwood City in the 11th season as an adorable tiny-eared bear—but what about all the other anthropomorphic reimaginings they could’ve designed for him? We can’t rest until we see Damon as an alligator, tapir, and maybe even some kind of sentient moss.
5. That You Can Live With Someone For 6 Years And They Can Turn Around And Forget You In A Second
When Buster moved away, he and Arthur kept in touch via postcard, demonstrating that the bonds of friendship are unbreakable. If only Arthur had mentioned that the same can’t be said for romantic relationships, when in the span of one argument, you can go from intertwined souls imprinted on each other’s cellular memories to strangers in the same bed with so much distance between you that it may as well be infinite, until finally there’s nothing left to talk about but the logistics of packing up the IKEA plates as you ring in your new life as a ghost in your own skin. Thanks for nothing, Marc Brown.
Here is The Sponge. His antics excite you. He is from your past, and it feels good to see him.
This is not a house, but The Sponge is disturbed and does not know better.
The Sponge is the master of Large Snail.
The Sponge is ageless, neither boy nor man.
The Greedy Crab wants coins.
The Sponge and Squid sear meat in a dark room. We enjoy watching it.
Pink Star scares us with his terrible voice.
Car? No. Boat? No. Nothing is as it should be.
Greedy Crab is father to Whale. The world is governed by madness.
The Strong Lobster lives for nothing except muscles. Beyond his muscles, he has no existence. He is one of your favorites.
Here is the Woman Of Endless Expansions. She lost her mind in prison because The Sponge could not drive. This story is a cherished memory of your youth.
The Rodent lives in a house of death where The Sponge is cooked alive. He visits her often.
It was meant to be The Happiest Place on Earth from the beginning.
1. Everyone knows Disneyland is The Happiest Place on Earth.
But what a lot of people DON’T know is the amazing effort that went into making the park as magical as it is today!
2. But in these rare archival images that were used to sell prospective East Coast licensees on the park, you can see Disneyland BEFORE it was actually Disneyland.
3. And it turns out that the plans for the park…
4. …were pretty similar to what guests get to enjoy today!
Although the Monstro the Whale ride was never built.
5. Like Adventureland, which looks just as wild on paper…
6. …as it does in Southern California!
7. And Tomorrowland looked just like the futuristic metropolis you would expect.
This was nearly identical to what Tomorrowland looked like when the park opened, though it looks very different today.
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song is one of the most popular nostalgic tunes online. There are countless spoofs and parodies posted all the time. Even Will Smith himself apparently can’t help but drop the beat when he’s a guest on television talk shows.
