    Do you remember Twist N Shakes???

    On thinking, im not usre if they were actually called twist n shakes?

    They were drinks in a plastic bottle usually brightly coloured and you twisted the top off, i think they were fruit flavoured/full of sugar,flavourings and colourings. Any ideas what they might be called people?

    They're called "Twist n Squeeze", (sp?!), they still sell them in Heron.
    I have a pack of the pink ones in my fridge.

    Raggydolls anyone?

    I loved the TMNT, are you afraid of the dark, rugrats, hey arnold, angry beavers lol... all them crappy nickelodeon shows.

    Then there was Zzzzap, magic roundabout, saved by the bell, kenan and kel, sister sister, sabrina the teenage witch...

    I remember yo-yo's, tamagotchis, alien's in goo, gel pens, smelly gel pens, the terrapins that you got in kinder eggs, the trolls that you got for the end of your pencils, TY beanie babies!!

    Minimilks, mr freeze lollies, gobstoppers!! lol, babybels were huge at our school :rolleyes: , frubes made you so cool.

    Best games of my youth were, british bulldog, operation, crashbandicoot on the PS :p: , paperboy, lemmings, rollerdiscos!!! (not a game but they became huge... in about '99).

    And I know I've missed so much...

    I think we might actually be the same person. Except I hated sister sister. Mainly because of the theme tune & that annoying little boy in it...... Roger I think!

    I heard when I was about 12 that Zack died in a car crash & that Kel died of a drugs overdose. Quite haunting times at that age!

    Ha I wasn't much of a fan either... loved saved by the bell but just watched all the rest for the sake of it :p:

    I grew up with a load of guys so I blame them for a lot of my memories :yep:

    I used to love Reboot and Spellbinder and many of those other Australian/New Zealand and BBC shows like Aquilla, Grange Hill, and Byker Grove, I can even vaguely remember Ant and Dec on it but only the paintball scene and Jeff was cool(the guy who ran it before he was killed)

    Also loved Miami and LA7 around 2000, and Power Rangers, Cities Of Gold, Fantastic Max, repeats of classic Dr Who(vaguely) also loved Round The Twist, Poddington Peas, DJ Kat(from Sky) and KTV, and Live And Kicking, Going Live, Motormouth(thought Andy Crane was cool) Bad Influence, Gamesmaster, Crystal Maze etc.

    The kids tv program Knightmare, even though i was born mid 80's and this show was early 90's up to about 94 i think, could be wrong, used to scare the living beejeezus outta me! Also used to love Pirates of Dark Water, Prince Valiant.

    Hmmmm Mr Freeze ice lollies being 10p. Rainbow Drops being 10p. Those ice cream lolly things with the cows on, they used to be 10p as well, cracking value
    Ahhhh I loved Knightmare. Was going to mention that.

    Also loved Stop It and Tidy Up. Anyone remember that? I could be here all day going on about great cartoons etc from the 80s

    To me to you, chucklevision, LA7, miami 7, I used to look forward to zzzzap on fridays, but it was quite creepy, the music and floating around the comic, and I used to wonder why it never stopped on the box with the leg! Pokemon from year 5 onwards.

    I liked that asian girl who was crazy who started about 1998 with that guy called Stephen Mulhern or something, and she went onto Pepsi Chart or something, she was cooll but since then most of the presenters seem to be pretty boys about 21 to 23 who seem to act as if they are high all the time, same for Blue Peter.
