Test your knowledge on the GREATEST decade to have been a kid. Hater ’90s kids to the left, please.
BRB, eBaying my childhood.
Watch in horror as two people who were born in ‘89 and ‘92 and somehow managed to attain adulthood encounter ’80s action cartoons for the first time. How do you not know who He-Man is???
Would you believe there is a link between Baby Kermit on Muppet Babies and Megatron on Transformers?!
Can you prove you were raised in the greatest decade to be a kid: the ’80s?!
Are you a natural leader like He-Man or a quirky individual like Rainbow Brite?
In the 1980s, nothing was more important to kids than character-themed merchandise. Also, BRB, eBaying He-Man and the Masters of the Universe bedsheets.
The lesson here is that you NEVER should’ve opened and played with your toys.
Who says you can’t put a price on your childhood?
These camp classics are best viewed with the right audience. And a lot of booze.
There was no bigger joy for girls (and some boys) than getting one of these epic toys on Christmas morning.
A decade that was defined by vinyl smock costumes.
The 1987 live-action feature film version of the beloved children’s cartoon series had a lot more gay subtext than you may remember.
Seriously, what was really going on between She-Ra and He-Man?
These might explain a lot about our generation.
He-Man’s arch nemesis helps you release the rage and embrace the joy.
This list is definitive proof that there was no better decade for toys than the ‘80s. (Note: toy lines are listed in no particular order.)
“By the power of Grayskull… I have the power!”
Signs that you were raised in the greatest decade to be a kid: the ’80s! Step aside, ’90s kids. Just step aside.
Admit it, your inner 6-year-old is shrieking. This fall, your childhood dreams come true.
You knew your parents loved you if you owned one of these.
Congratulations, it’s a…miracle? Even in the best circumstances, ultrasounds resemble a trippy Rorschach test.
Or making it awesome, depending on your irony threshold. Still no ugly Chanukah sweaters.
Illustrator Dan Matutina found a clever way to depict popular heroes of TV, movies, and video games, alongside their lovable antagonists. He puts it best: “Rivals hate each other, but deep inside they know they couldn’t exist without the other.” <3!
Advait Nemlekar has covered a slew of geek-related themes. This time, the Mumbai-based musician admits his “Masters of the Universe” medley “is a little cheesy, but this music takes me back to my childhood … I hope it does the same for tons of folks out there.”
Wait, why is Nic Cage not Skeletor? Come on guys, that was mash-up 101 right there.
I like how Cringer is on Prince Adam’s coffee mug.

By the power of Grayskull! Even Eternia is not immune to this horrible fashion plague.
New York’s hosting a He-Man themed Charity art show to benefit homeless youth. The pieces range from your standard Mer-Man-as-gay-speedo-model portraiture to the genuinely weird. Maybe Skeletor isn’t as bad as we all thought? (Tons more at Skeletor Saves.)

Or rather, sings it in a falsetto set to dance beats and sparkly rainbows. How did I miss this?? I love the 90s and I love gay music.
