Anyone remember Granny's Garden?

I was in my old primary school helping out, and I remembered playing it.

I remember back when those of us jumping onto Pokemon in Gen 3 thought Emerald was just so awesome. Then Game Freak just had to show off with HG/SS.
I remember the first season of the Pokemon anime. It was great.
Also, who else among you remembers the days of such anime as Uchuu Senkan Yamato, Detective Conan, and Baccano!?
Finally, I remember back when Runescape was the game to play online.
I secretly admit to still frequenting Neopets. Anyone else a former or current Neopian? I really just return for the Altador Cup, though.
Who are you again and why in the world would you expect anything resembling rationality or civility in youtube comments?

Ok some childhood cartoon nostalgia ...

- Smurfs
- Snorks
- Teenage  Mutant Ninja Turtles
- Duck Tales
- Inspector Gadget
- Tiny Toon Adventures

Oh being a child in the 80's was awesome!

And some other cartoons I liked as a teenager ...

- Aladdin
- Gargoyles
- Animaniacs
- The New Batman and Superman Adventures (Kevin Conroy as Batman's voice and Mark Hamill as the Joker's voice)
- Batman Beyond
- Daria

I also tended to watch other 90's younger kids shows too since my sister was born in 1990. Thus I got to see all that sort of stuff too.

And just the other day I watched one of those DC animated movies, and now I miss Justice League.  The movie had the original voice actors for Batman and Superman, but that just made me miss it more.  I gotta watch the Question Authority arc again, if only for the Superman VS Captain Marvel fight.

*is the biggest cartoon nerd*

I got the box set of both the JL and JLU for my birthday a few months back been working my way through I'm about up to that fight myself.

I got The Incredible Machine the other day on GOG. Now I remember playing TIM: Contraptions but what I didn't remember was the game I played much earlier than that, The Incredible Machine v3. The title screen looks like this.


Man, it's weird how you can play a game for hours when it's the only game you had. The other day I fiddled around with this for 5 minutes then got bored.  :P
Yeah, [Kishmond] came back from Africa, but the ponies have him now.

Heehee Ruby.

Anyways on the note of video games I guess the Earliest I can remember playing is either the Zaboomafoo game and a Land Before Time game.

First Hand-held Game I played was Pokemon Yellow.

Also the Land Before Time movies were among my favourites.

The internet is a magical place, where linguistic and dialectic possibilities are endless. Why not embrace those variations and see where they lead you.

As far as first video games go, I don't know if it really counts but I remember as far back as Mickey Mouse's ABCs in 1995. After that there was likely something on the NES that I played, like Gauntlet.

I remember when Cartoon Network was the most awesome channel in the world.

And then they got rid of Cartoon Cartoons. What the hell, guys! >:(

My first game was Pokemon Red. I got it for Christmas.

And for my birthday, I got my N64 with Pokemon Stadium. It is in my sister's room now.

Playtime is over babies.

My first games were Super Mario Land and Tetris on the Gameboy.

Not the Gameboy anything. Just the Gameboy. It was the size of a brick and had a glorious creamed spinach screen and tin-tastic sound.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.
