you know you're a kid from the 70's when...

"All skaters, change directions" means something to you.
"Members Only" jackets...say no more.

A predominant color in your childhood photos is "plaid".


If male: your first love was Marsha Brady, Jeannine, Samantha from Bewitched, Josie or any one of the Pussycat.

It was a major accomplishment to get to the "Chase" scene in Ms. Pacman.

Female: Leg warmers were cool.

Most of the fillings in your mouth are directly related to Bazooka or Bubble Yum.

Rotary phones.

Schoolhouse Rock played a HUGE part in how you learned things like grammar, math and history. (A big hint here is if the only way you can recite the Preamble to the Constitution is by singing it.)

The Brady Bunch Movie brings back warm memories.

You can remember the words to the theme song of "The Greatest American Hero." ("BELIEVE IT OR NOT, I'M WALKIN' ON AIR... I NEVER THOUGHT I COULD FEEL SO FREE-EE-EE...")

There was nothing strange about Bert and Ernie living together.

This rings a bell: "and my name, is Charlie. They work for me."

You actually believed that Mikey, famed kid on the Life cereal commercials, died after eating Pop Rocks and drinking a Coke.

You actually remember Benetton.

You actually remember Mr. Bill.

You ever wanted to learn to play "Stairway to Heaven" on the guitar and choreographed "Dancing Queen" by yourself in your room.

You know who shot J.R.

You learned to swim at about the same time "Jaws" came out... and still carry the emotional scars to prove it.

You remember "Friday Night Videos" before the days of MTV.

You remember Bo and Luke Duke, Daisy, Boss Hogg, or, worst of all - what Sheriff Roscoe's full name was. (Coltrain)

You remember having to get off the couch to change the TV channel.

You remember that music that was labeled "alternative" really was.

You remember the days when "safe sex" meant "my parents are going out of town".



You remember when film critics were certain that no movie could ever possibly get better special effects than those in the movie TRON.

You remember when there was only "G", "PG", and "R".


You took family trips BEFORE the invention of the mini-van and remember riding in the back of the station wagon trying to get passing trucks to honk at you.

You tuned in regularly to the adventures of the Bionic Man and Woman, Wonder Woman, and/or the Incredible Hulk.

You were not allowed to see The Exorcist, The Omen, or The Blue Lagoon when they came out.

You were unsure if Diet Coke would ever catch on.



Your first musical purchase was an 8-track tape.

Your jaw would ache by the time you finished one of those brick-sized packages of Bazooka!

Your parents paid $2,000 for a top-loading VCR that was almost the size of a coffee table.

Your parents wanted you to attend medical school, but you decided it was pointless since Quincy got all the babes anyway.

[altered list from bored.com]

my own list:

You owned a jumpsuit.

Your $1.00 per week allowance got you a 'Mad magazine', a 'Charlston Chew' and a pack of Star Wars cards with a stick of gum that was like eating plastic.

Shops still had 'Penny candy'.

On hot days, the fire department opened up hydrants as sprinklers.

You played outside during blizzards and thunderstorms.

Metal and concrete playgrounds.

No helmets.

Your parents chain-smoked in the house.

Stitches for cuts were administered by a family member...usually the person in the house who was the best at mending clothes with a thimbul.

watching home movies on a super 8mm film projector.

The dojo was cold in the winter and hot in the summer. Karate classes were $200.....per year. and there was only one gym to train at in a 25 mile radius.

Every weekend: 'Creature Double Feature' and 'Kung Fu theatre' !

Ed, man you really nailed it with that one! You just literally described my "tween" years, substituting "comic books" for "Mad Magazine", and "Rainblo" for "Charleston Chew". $1 a week. My wife still doesn't believe me when I tell her that.

EDIT - I think classes were $25/month when I started AKK in 1984.

Haha, nice list. I was born in 1987 and grew up in the 1990's basically. I think I'll make a little list for 90's kids like me...

You know you were a 90's kid when...

You remember the 'Macarena', and how 'cool' it was. At the time (Thinks of the Macarena and shudders)...

You collected Tazos. Or stickers. Or Pokemon. You collected ANYTHING.

You thought that the Power Rangers really kicked butt.

I'll edit this later with more stuff. Anyone else grow up in the 90's?

Right On Ed! LOL!

Marathon bars and Waky Packages.

The joy of coming home and finding that your Sea Monkeys came in.

Bruce Lee was just another chinese guy that made movies.

Big Mac's were big

Your parents knew what you did before you even got home.

It was a punishment to be sent to your room.

You ate your broccoli because "Starving kid's in china would be glad to have that".

You wish just once to have the courage to tell your mom to send it to 'em.

Thanks for the memories Ed.

Good Luck!
Mike.

I was '74, so my first love was Debbie Harry

I never did that I can recall, I remember thinking 'SuperPacman' where you could turn and chase the ghosts was the most awesome thing ever at the time though.

Bazooka!! just the best gum everrrr. Here in the UK, Blackjacks and fruit salads added to the cavity count also.

Quote:

Now be fair, 'Stairway' is timeless- kids of the 80's and 90's will relate to that. 'dancing queen' may have been just you?

I remember not caring enough at the time to commit it to memory. Wasn't it all a dream anyway? or was that Bobby?

oh yes, and Doctor Who

Quote:

You were not allowed to see The Exorcist, The Omen, or The Blue Lagoon when they came out.




My parents were always fine with me watching horror. The Exorcist and TCM were banned in the UK during my childhood, i still got to see them of course, and my parents never minded one bit. Blue Lagoon would have been different though. Sex on TV was always switched over in our home. I suppose I was encouraged to make war, not love; from an early age

Quote:

You were unsure if Diet Coke would ever catch on.




In the UK, the first 'diet' soda was called 'OneCal'- I had no idea what that meant, I just saw the adverts and thought it looked like a nice drink- boy was I in for a suprise with my first swig!

Your first musical purchase was an 8-track tape.




Nope, not quite that old

State of the art Betamax baby!

Even as a youngster that struck me as unrealistic.

According to my dad I took a leek at the urinals at the Monsal hotel/pub in Derbyshire in around 1978 stood next to one of the most iconic northeners of the time--Arthur Scargil aka King Arthur or even gobby tosspot. Who here as a child of the 70's shared urinal time with famous/unfamous 70's icons?

Those were the days....my first car was a beat up 65 Mustang fast back with 289 three speed. I "jacked it up", put thrush pipe on it and had a string that went to the four barrel through the dash board that we installed and when we went buy the chicks walking home from school you could pull the string and the that four barrel sound would kick in. Oh you ask why didn't you just hook the carburetor up correctly, still don't know today, goofy times. Sometime when one of my old buddies and I are driving down the road one of the will say, "Schanne, hurry pull the string" there some girls and we all start laughing. One nice thing about that old stang is that the back seats folded down and it made a bed like area in the back...if this stang is a rock'n don't come a knock'n!!

I was born in the very tail end of the 70's (Oct '79) so some of the things that have been mentioned I do remember but not all pertain to me. A big thing that I remember is riding in the back dash of our Delta 88 and my parents would slam on the brakes and we'd roll off and land on the floor. Kids weren't in car seats heck they weren't even in seatbelts in the back seat. I would also drive my dad's car when we went to the deer lease. I'd sit in his lap and steer and he'd control the gas and brake. If he was in a good mood he'd let me sit in his lap until we got to the gas station. The cops would congradulate you for parking straight. Do that these days and your looking at a huge fine and possibly jail time. I think that's the problem these days, kids have been sheltered and guarded from everything so they didn't toughen up as they grew.

I grew up poor. My dad worked a total of 43 days in 1984. Hunting was necessary. I learned to hunt when I was 5. Try to give a 5 year old hunting lessons these days and you are called a bad parent for allowing your child to even touch a gun. Forget the fact that you are right there with them and it's not loaded when you are walking and the safety is on.

Not a urinal, but my greatest iconic memory in the 70's was sharing an elevator ride and talk with Bobby Orr at MGH Boston. I was frozen...it was probably like seeing Jesus.

where was my polaroid camera!?!! got his autograph on my shirt though.

please...don't ask who Bobby Orr is, and don't say 'oh the bank commercial guy'...I'd have to kill ya.

Put it this way... he was to Ice Hockey in the 70's, what Jimi Hendrix was to Guitar in the 60's.

Cord, the Debbie Harry crush didn't start for me until 1980 with "call me". I was anti-disco and shunned Blondie when I first heard 'heart of glass'. but once I turned teen, all bets were off...and the music came second to 'hot chicks singing'. lol

If UFC was around in the 70's, I bet some of the fighter's walk in songs would be Iron Man from Black Sabbath , and there's nothing wrong with that.

No way Ed ... I am envious. Bobby Orr is my greatest hockey hero of all time and why the Boston Bruins are my favorite hockey team of all time. I had a Bobby Orr doll when I was a kid and I have a some even now as an adult. I wear the Boston Bruin jersey with pride. Bobby Orr was and is the greatest player of all time and more so then my own Canadian and Edmonton native Wayne Gretzky. You are correct Ed, it would have been like meeting Jesus.

Thankfully sticking as a Boston Bruin fan I was able to also enjoy Ray Bourque (fellow Canadian) who I consider one of the greatest defensemen of all time. When he left to go for that last chance at a Stanley Cup, I was happy he got it so that he could retire and consider his hockey carrier full.

CB's ... yeh. I remember riding around on our bikes ... we did that all of the time and everywhere ... pretending we were truck drivers. Breaker breakers, that's a big 10-4 little buddy. We were a convoy.

Hot rod magazines. Trading and playing hockey cards against the school wall and the closest won the card. Marbles with steelies and creamies being the coolest. Putting hockey cards in our bike spokes to sound like a motorbike. Listening to your little hand held portable AM radio. Hanging out down by the river skipping stones as far as you can. Walking across train bridges both above and below the tracks (freaky). Playing knock a door ginger. Playing kick the can till well into the night. Playing war.

Lots a good stuff.

Anyone else watch the '70's Show'? I swear, the first season gave me flashbacks.

For those who didn't get Harlan's 'penishead' reference, I present Twiki's unfortunate design:



It's actually a perfect look for him. He was a total Richard Cranium.

Yes good old Buck Rogers. Used to imitate Buck and his kickboxing skills. I also used to have his ship and figurines of the characters including Twiki.

Used to think Wilma Deering (Erin Gray) was a hotty.

Yes, she was too. She tried to look sexy where as Wilma didn't and still was.

"Battle of the Network Stars" with Barbi Benton in those short, red, nylon shorts!!

Also, Hannah/Barbarra Cartoons. They just don't make them like that anymore!

For you 70's kids that lived in the more Northern climates... Moon-Boots!

Buck Rogers or Dukes of Hazzard lunch boxes. And they were made of metal!

Kangaroos. You know, those athletic shoes that had a little zippered pocket on the side. If you were lucky the quarter that that your mom gave you for the payphone( ) would fit in there!

Wow! The memories!

LOL I had a pair of pink Roos! I was able to put a quarter in one shoe and a dime in the other shoe for my lunch money.

I never had a metal lunch box. I had the plastic one with the thermos inside. It was orange and it had Hanna Barbara's Blue Falcon and Dynomutt on it.

Big wheels.... when they broke we'd take the back wheels off , some plywood and 2 wagon wheels made a nice go cart.

rock'em sock'em robots..shogun warriors....stretch armstrong...light bright...

How about spinning them backwards to see if they had any hidden messages. Queen had a few that did like "Another Bites the Dust" had "It is fun to smoke marijuana" and another that said "try suicide" but can't remember which song.

I remember all of these ... frickin' awesome.

Big Wheels ... loved that thing. My brother had it and we trashed that thing. The wheels were always so worn out as we would set up pylons and stuff and try to break each other's track time. I'd always beat him as he was 4 years younger then I was.

All good memories. Usually when I think of my childhood it is always bad but stuff like this just reminds me of the gems. Thanks all.

Olivia Newton-John was definitely a good looking women during that time period, not that she isn't today. Of course I remember her more from Grease where she went from the cute and innocent looking school girl to the raunchy slut looking babe. A movie that told girls to change for their man ... awesome.
