The only rule here is it is not already listed on the original page.
Such as:
  • You might be a child of the 80's if someone says "jelly" and you think of a shoe.
  • You might be a child of the 80's if someone says "Commodore" and you think of a computer.
  • You might be a child of the 80's if someone says "Pop Rocks" and you DO NOT think of music or how great your father is but instead think candy.
  • You might be a child of the 80's if you know what the secret of NIMH from "The Secret of NIMH" is.


Any others?

You might be a child of the 80's if any of these (and mostly ALL of these) are familiar:

Extra kudos if you can identify what arcade games these are from.

Awesome!!!!!!

I've heard of jelly shoes, but I'm not sure of what they are exactly. (never was big into fashion)
I know of the Commodore 64!!! (some very awesome games!) (I've used one before! oohh!)
(Of course, I also think of the band The Commodores- a 60s group! Smile)
I've had quite a few Pop Rocks in my day. Good candy. Don't believe the Pop Rocks and Coke myth, though.
And I still have to get around to seeing Ralph Bakshi's "The Secret of NIMH"!!!!

And on the video game music, Awesome!!! I love the arcade!

The first song is from "Galaga"!!! One of my all time favorite games!!! ( I still love playing it whenever I can find it!)
I'll have to admit I'm not sure on Songs 2 and 3.
And of course, Song 4 is "Pac-Man"!!!! (I love that video game! This is definitely my all time favorite video game ever!!!) (The 1980s cartoon rocks too!)
Smile
And I'm pretty sure Song 5 is from "Donkey Kong" - another awesome 80s video game!!!

Someone want to fill me in on what the other 2 are?
Cool

Your right about Song 1.
Made no guess on Songs 2-3
You are wrong (but close) on Song 4
And you are wrong on Song 5

Aw!!! Don't tell me song 4 was MS. Pac-Man!!!!!!!
Laughing


(That's actually the one I play most anyway, because it's been forever since I've found an actual Pac-Man arcade game!)

Well, if Song 5 isn't Donkey Kong, I still know I've heard Song 5 somewhere before. I'll have to listen to it a little more and maybe it'll come to me.

Okay, just relistened to Song 5. That isn't the original Pac-Man game, is it? Confused

OK, I won't tell you Song 4 is Ms. Pac-Man.
And, yes, Song 5 is Pac-Man.
Just to end the mystery, Song 2 is Frogger and Song 3 is Moon Patrol.

You might be a child of the 80s if:

You wished the family car could talk like KITT from Knight Rider.

You had spokey-dokes on your bicycle, but were disappointed that they didn't work at high speeds.

The toys you used to own are selling for hundreds, sometimes thousands of dollars on eBay.

You thought Skeletor and Mumm-Ra might be related.

Hmm, I'm sure Skeletor and Mumm-Ra were both in constant touch with the "ancient forces of evil"!!!
Laughing

(And incidentally, I did use to own the talking KITT car from Knight Rider!!! That was the best toy ever! And it had a cool Michael Knight figure that came with it. I so wish I still had that. I recently found a picture of me receving on Christmas sometime in 1986 or 87 sometime. It was so cool!)

It just seems wrong to you to see James Bond being played by anyone other than Timothy Dalton.

Lazimus_Prime, you did mean Roger Moore, right?
Very Happy

And for Mendoza's last contribution, I remember Neighbours too! My older siblings loved that show. I used to be into it some too. I love listening to the theme song nowadays. That was an Australian soap opera, right? I think it was either that or British. I don't know which, but I used to watch it all the time.

Cool

Some additional ones.

You might be an 80's kid if you watched Ducktales religiously.
You might be an 80s kid if you thought Cleo from Heathcliff was one sexy cat.
You might be an 80s kid when chuck-e-cheese was Showbiz Pizza.
You might be an 80s kid when you saw Warriors of the Wind on HBO, theaters or on video before later when you grew up to realize it was a butchery of Nausicaa and it was one of your anime introductions.
