1980’s Comeback

Who didn’t love the 80’s?  Crimped hair, riding bikes, awesome cartoons were all a part of the awesome 80’s.  Michael Jackson was king of the world.  Micheal Jordan was King of the sky.  It was a great time, and it seems now that people love the 80’s more than ever.  I think they are having a serious run at overtaking the nostalgic 70’s.

I remember waking up and watching all kinds of cartoons on Saturday mornings.  The Smurfs, Care Bears, He-Man and Transformers are just a few.  Now, there are movies out there that are shifting the pop culture’s eyes back again to the 80’s.  Michael Bay did a great job on his latest movie, and it’s got people searching everywhere for Transformers Toys.  Kids now want action figures of Optimus Prime and Megatron, and I found a great lens on Squidoo that has them: Transformers: More than Meets the eye.  Parents are even scrambling to get items like these for their kids.

It’s amazing to me to see the blend of the cultures.  There are kids out there wearing Disney Cars clothes, and Transformers clothing at the same time.  Little do they know the heritage of the 80’s.  You also see stuff like Miami Vice and G.I. Joe making comebacks.  What a great run.  Keep it real in the 80’s!
