Look at this thing. It is insane. Why were they everywhere? Why did they have little jewel belly buttons? What was their purpose? The shape of a troll doll’s head is not a head shape found anywhere in nature. What were we thinking, people?
We watched a straight family sitcom on which all the characters were anthropomorphic, human-sized dinosaurs that lived in a house. And we were just like, “Yeah, that’s cool.”
Don't Ask, Don't Tell
Woof. The ’90s were great for a lot of reasons, but one of those reasons was not Bill Clinton’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy to address gay people in the military. What a bummer of a thing we just sort of accepted for a while.
Athletes Being the Biggest Celebs in the Galaxy
There was no bigger celebrity in the ’90s than Michael Jordan. In fact, all of the Chicago Bulls were recognized and loved by everybody. They were in movies, in commercials, in toy form in McDonald’s Happy Meals. They were true superstars.
Today? Nothing like that.
Wowee did we have some bad judgment in the ’90s when it came to fashion and style trends. Overplucked eyebrows were definitely one of the worst. Thankfully, Drew Barrymore’s (and my!) eyebrows recovered nicely, but man oh man was that a mistake.
