After months of test episodes and hours of watching decades-old videos, the little idea that could has launched. It all came from a simple conversation in a Wendy's drive-thru; Laura and I were discussing how seemingly nostalgic our generation was for the campy media of the 1980s and early 90s, how we wondered if this nostalgia was warranted. My mom had gotten me "The Thundercats" season 1 on DVD and my few attempts at watching it were always rebuffed. The show was simply unwatchable.
"I wonder," says I, "how many other things I loved as a kid are actually just unwatchable toy commercials? Better yet, I wonder how many things are actually great, and we just haven't seen them in ages."
Thanks to Laura's savvy audio production skills and our bevy of funny peers with similar hazy memories, we now have brought this remembrance experiment to life and I am so proud to share it with all of you. And I hope you will share it with all your friends and family. Heck, share it with you acquaintances and enemies, too. Contact your state and local representatives and send them a link. Let's remember the heyday of neon spandex and laser lights together!
