Skor should of been #1, pfft.

Hello said...

I remember watching Inspector Gadget on Nickelodeon when I was really little. That was a funny show!
Oh and Jade I'm right there with you on the Reese's being the top 5 candybar. Have you tried the white chocolate ones yet? When I eat one I end up eating like, five in the end :|

Stay awesome and I love you!

Frin said...

You forgot Invader Zim! One of the best cartoons known to man, from the crazed brain-meets of Jhonen Vasquez (consult Davey if you are unfamiliar with Vasquez’ work) himself!

Sebastian, Saint said...

No great shock that you're a fan of the Smurfs.

Sebastian, Saint said...

"Gem" as in Jem and the Holograms?

Do you have a magical earring that turns you into a rockstar, Jade?

Bandito said...

The characters from He-Man are hilarious. Fisto? Ninjor? A friend of mine wrote a story about He-Man and they all talk in chat-speak.
"Fisto: O NO! I am gunna miss da nikleback consert!!! Skeletor: 2 late fool." Good stuff.

kat said...

Inspector Gadget was the shit right there. As a kid I used to say "wowzer" all the time. Made my parents laugh. Haven't heard of most of those candybars, but that's what you get for being australian. Sour Skittles are pretty rad though.

stella said...

I totally agree with you on the Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. You're making me hungry. :P

We're male prostitutes. said...

All I know I learned from GI Joe.


..Kidding, but seriously though.

shanagdi said...

Sour Skittles...yummy!! I bought some the other day & refused to share them with anyone. My only disappointment is that they changed the lime for blue raspberry. I love freezing Skors then breaking them before eating. I buy skor toffee bits & make chocolate toffee chip cookies. Toffifay is quite delicious as well. Reese's pb cups are good. They are my office mate's favorites as well.

As far as the cartoons, I loved G.I. Joe, Inspector Gadget, & the Smurfs. I loved Gem because the drummer had the same name as me. I was late on the Ren & Stimpy b/c I was at college at the time & didn't have cable.

Now I'm hungry & want to watch He- Man or Thundercats.

Bailey said...

I can't eat a lot of Reese's....they make my stomach feel funny.
RSVP...I think I've heard of those.
I have Pop'ables...they're not that great, the Reese's ones are better. Mike and Ikes, though. Those are great.
Ren and Stimpy are the greatest.
Inspector Gadget...that one always annoyed me.

slyabney said...

Jem was awesome.

I see someone is confused about what an 80s cartoon is though. As Zim is a cartoon from the past few years.

Zero bars were also amazing, but I'm not sure they exsisted outside the midwest or if they still are around.

I think this now begs that you do a top 5 80s game show list too.

nineteen84 said...

I don't know what toffifay is, but my cousin's cat is named that.

#1 would probably be between the Smurfs and The Care Bears for me.

And what about Astro Boy?

I'm pretty sure I was greatly influenced by the TV I watched when I was a wee one. I would run around the house in black shorts and red rubber boots quite often singing the astro boy theme song. Also, I would maneuver stealthily around with a calculator pretending I was Penny from Inspector Gadget with a computer book.

Shy Boys Win said...

Invader Zim is grand but it's not 80's, son!

xvinsanityx said...

i had a zillion transformers

IAMSPARTACUS [DF] said...

Kick ass as always Jade. Love it every time.<3

N. Huda /dumb blonde said...

Power Rangers were like my first "must-watch" series. It's not in the '80s but it was awesome. I couldn't pronounce Pterodactyl that time so when it comes as role-playing, I ended up saying sabre-tooth tiger. Furthermore, I'm born in 89. And yeah, The Peanut Gang, The Smurfs and Inspector Gadget were my favourites.

Darlene Conner said...

good lists, good lists. jade, do you happen to remember the huggabunch?

http://www.mystiesplace.com/pages/huggabunch/images/hb004.jpg

not completely a cartoon, but rad.

her face is so illogical said...

Sour skittles!
Sour skittles!

Aw man, they are so much fun to eat. And sour fruit pastilles.

Reese's peanut majiggers make me decidedly ill, hah.

Frisk said...

I used to watch Inspector Gadget every day before school. That, and Pink Panther. Reese's are my fav. We should watch cartoons and eat candy together someday my friend.

Michelle said...

i love you.

Michelle said...

What about TMNT?

ninja turtles are the greatest. ♥ and power rangers? they were a little weird...every kid in san leandro in 1987 was the red power ranger.

wrmfzykty said...

Sorry to disagree...but number one on the candy list is Charleston Chews, followed closely by Rollos. I remember He-Man...spent six weeks looking for a Castle Greyskull for my stepson the first xmas it came out.

jen said...

dunnananana inspector gadget dunnananana HOO HOO!

yeah.
*cough*


I like Reeses the best too. :)

Mel said...

Great selection!

I used to watch 'the smurfs' every single day!!!

; D

Finchy said...

Mmmm... sour skittles.... yum... I don;t eat those anymore, no one will let me... they do bad things to me.

*sighs* i must be the only one whose favorite ever cartoon was (and still is) Teenage mutant Ninga (I miss them being heros) turtles!!!

Escondite Ingl├Ęs said...

Sour skittles... amazing much? <3

"Honorable mention"
Haha, I don't know why but that made me laugh.

IAMSPARTACUS [DF] said...

With all this Chuck Norris talk goin on, I thought I'd make this little Chuck Tribute movie. http://rapidshare.de/files/11552609/ChuckNorris_0003.wmv.html

Skylar said...

Aww I love Jem! I never miss the episodes. I think I've never missed any of He-Man too.

Sour skittles own. because you can taste the inverted rainbow.

Desert Queen said...

Ren and Stimpy own my soul.

Alice said...

I'm sorry but the Smurfs are really number 1, and you know that!

Electric M. Bison Rock President said...

www.retrojunk.com
I found every cartoon I watched as a child on that website, it should bring a tear to your eye. Destro was only cool cause of his mask.

Dani said...

Reese's... O_O Love.

sara said...

Sour Skittles and Tropical Skittles rock. And Skor I think kills peanut butter cups or any kind of cup for that matter!

Trent sucks at life said...

Sour Skittles are too sour for my mouth's liking.

Bowlingcade? said...

Sour Skittles totally dominates Reeses, haha. Aw man, I used to love the Smurfs...back in the day when I was so cool. Haha.Ren and Stimpy=Always good.

Bailey said...

Ok, I have come up with a top 5 for you to post. Three, actually.
Top 5 old Family Guy episodes, top 5 new Family Guy episodes, and top 5 Family Guy episodes over all.
Because everyone loves Family Guy.

Chelsea said...

I watched all those shows except Smurfs....they made feel angry.
I never saw Gem either.
Ren Stimpy ruled the nation...like television.


Reese was a good man. And I just love candy in general.
I have a big ol' white chocolate with little cookie thingies in it bar...yeah it's Hershey's. -_^

Chelsea said...

And I agree with the Family Guy thing...You should do that.


Cookies 'n' Creme!

xFreedomBulletx said...

I was always watching the smurfs and the snorks and fraggle rock...GI Joe was rocking though, they have some funny renditions of it at fenslerfilms.com they've taken 30 second clips from the GI Joe shows and put in different dialogue. Some of them are lame but there's a few that are riots

Mrs. Hoek said...

Ren & Stimpy owns me.
It started in 1991 though, so it can't really count.
:P

Pretty Pistol said...

sour skittles...

best candy ever...

love love love

Darlene Conner said...

yeah, so i looked up rsvp candy bars for an hour today. couldn't find anything at all about them. :/

i was going to buy like... a case of them and bring them to you at your next show.

<3.

Michelle said...

What about 80's movies?

Personally, i adore Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, License to Drive, and Ferris Bueller.

...this all makes me miss the 80's. best. years. ever.

Which kind of government is the best, in your opinion? Why?

I'm reading about facism right now... It's amazing! Strange and amazing...
Every kind of government is amazing... Some of them are unfair or impracticable, but they're amazing anyway.
How could we live in feudalism? :P





Oh guy, have a nice day :]

idanceinmisery said...

oh come on! ren and smipy deserve more then an honorable mention!lol

nerpal said...

Dude. Ren and Stimpy came out in '91.
Use that sidekick to fact check!



I think there's a website where you can rock all of the intro cartoons to these shows.
www.retrojunk.com? If not, ask Peter.

Weird, but so 80's!

blackviolet said...

Ahhhh, Heman and Shera were my favorites (although I apparently didn't like them enough to learn to spell them correctly). I still have one of those read along tapes were they meet for the first time.

Do you like dark chocolate?

I would have to say that fudge is my favorite thing.

REESES PEANUT BUTTER CUPS HELLS YEAH!

Frin said...

I’m sorry about my earlier comment. In my excitement that you posted I did not fully read the title (I missed the "80's" part). I retract my statement.
Apologies,
Frin™

Frin said...

I just saw your "Invader Zim is grand..." comment. I've already addressed the "80's" issue but I just wanted to say I'm glad you like Zim. =D You can come to my house and watch it anytime (I have the box set)! =P

Karmacoma said...

Transformers is the only movie I ever cried during. When Prime dies? Ugh that was twisted! You can't just play with a little kids emotions like that!

They brought him back but it was never the same.

jadedgeekgirl said...

Ren and Stimpy and Jem shoulda been in the top 5.
*shrugs* oh well. You forgot the busy world of richard scary, and *drum roll* BARNEY!!!! lol jkjk

barney was my first word though.
If you haven't tried ice cream flavored skittles, you have not lived! Carmel ripple is the best flavor! But they haven't even come out yet...

The Timid Wild One said...

Ah, Thundercats. I miss that show.

killer_tofu said...

Fall Child said...

Pssh. Ren and Stimpy rocks! and Resse are awesome.

Mild Obsession said...

Superduperspeedeelicious said...

Skittles aren't Vegetarian. :<

WastedTime1979 said...

I feel so old. I use to watch those cartoons. I think I need to hide. Now those cartoons are popular again and kids think they are new. Uh no they were on back in the day. I just recently purchased Voltron season 1. ::shakes head:: I'm old.

TheWhiteRooms said...

SMURFS! See I told you I would still sit here reading your old blogs ;)

JosayPoo said...

Reeses Peanut butter Cups <3
We should get together and have a sleepover and eat lots of peanut butter cups, just because they're that damn good.
