Subject: Things the Internet claim are "90s", when they're really 00s

Written By: Zelek2 on 02/25/16 at 5:12 pm

For some reason, the Internet tends to lump things that came out around 2000-2005 into their conception of "the 90s". For example, I've heard people call the show Lizzie Mcguire 90s, even though it aired from 2001-2004. That's not just post-2000, but mostly post-9/11 as well (which, according to many, was when the 00s really came into their own).

There are also people who say The Sims 1 is a "90s game", even though it came out squarely in 2000.

I'm guessing this is because people born in the mid-90s want to think of themselves as "90s kids" (though they're really 00s kids), or because 2000-2004 carried on many aspects of late 90s pop culture.

Still, I find this strange, as nobody says early 90s shows like Adventures of Pete & Pete, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Clarissa Explains it All, Saved by the Bell, or Full House are "80s shows", even though you could argue the early 90s felt quite a bit like the late 80s and are "technically 80s" if you want to stretch it.

Tell the internet it's being a moron for lumping 2004-2005 in with the 90's. 2000-2002? O0 2003? Ehh. 2004-2005? NO! NO! NO!

The real 2000's did not begin until 2003 at the earliest but more comfortably 2004. We should leave 2000-2002 out of this and keep them far, far away from the rest of that awful 2000's decade. Those years aren't exactly 90's years but neither are 1998 and 1999.

There are people out there (basement dweller 90s nostalgia nuts who were too young at the time to really understand the era and glorify/ruin it when the 80s were much, much better) who think that, right as the clock struck 1990, we were launched into a grungy Beavis and Butthead world and the "horrible cheesiness of the 80s" was washed away but, if you ask me, I consider things from 1990-1992 80's things. Things that started in the early 90's went through changes and became more 90's as 1993-1994 came around.

Like the Early 90s Guy says

Pre 1993:

Mario Party 2. It came out January 24, 2000, not 1999!

Pokemon Stadium as well. It came out March 6, 2000.

Toy Story 2 while having its theatre release late 1999, had its VHS release in 2000 which is when most kids must have watched it.

From those who think they're 90s kids, just because they were born in the mid-late 90s, they aren't. They're just imbecilic teenagers who want to agree with actual 90s kids, since they think that today's generation sucks. I may be one of those those teenagers who think today's generation sucks, but at least I say that I'm proud of being a 2000s kid. I don't say that not just for the cartoons, but it's also for the music, movies, TV shows, internet culture, and technology. Nowadays, we have kids being obsessed with their tablets rather than doing something else. It may be arguable that 2000s kids also love technology, but most of us didn't have smartphones nor tablets back then. It was basically a luxury that seemed more fitting for teens and adults.

Even back then, we didn't have a lot of cartoons focusing on pop cultural references. We had some that focused on the Internet (e.g. Cyberchase), but they took it in a level where it wasn't realistic, but serious. I don't know why these people think it was a good idea to show social media towards kids at a young age. I question if they either want them to join social media sites, or go on the Internet more. It seems rather unnecessary for them to do that in the first place.

Actually, Mario Party 2 WAS originally released in 1999, but in Japan. Same with Pokemon Stadium. Usually, Nintendo would release their games outside of Japan a year later, due to international translations.

I see it all the time. Especially when it comes to things from the first few years of the 2000s. Whether it's TV shows, movies, Video games, or commercials. I'd see people saying things like House of Mouse, Jak and Daxter, Even Stevens, Playstation 2 etc. But I've seen everyone from the '90s saying this whether they're early, mid, or late born.

He's mostly referring to when those of us in the west played them. Mario Party 2 is 1999, but that is completely irrelevant to us who got it in 2000. Same with Pokemon Stadium. Those in japan have memories of the game in the late '90s. But for us our memories of  Mario Party 2 is in the early '00s.

I REALLY hate generation elitism (basically ageist people) as it's no better than someone being sexist or racist. Complaining about people for something they have no control over. And it gets really bad when you have people complaining about those that only just 2 years younger (yes, I have seen this. Every argument this person made was stupid and didn't make any sense). It was "1990s kids" that brought the problem to my attention in the first place. I remember back between 2011-2013 I couldn't go anywhere with some stupid "Like if you're a 90s kid" or "Only 90s kids will remember this" or "If you don't remember this than your childhood sucked #90s kid" etc. And then I started running into threads of 90's kids making fun of people just because they weren't 90s kids. What's sad about this is you'd have some 25 year old man making fun of/arguing with some 14 year old girl. I like the 1990s alright, but this whole internet 90s trend thing sort of ruins the decade for me. And don't get me started on them youtube comments on 90s related videos.

Maybe it's because 2006-2009 was the era of Justin Bieber and iPhones, two things nostalgia fans seem to despise, so they lump the first half of the 00s in with the 90s and anything after that is "2000s".

2004 and 2005 is the era of American Idiot-era Green Day, Fall Out Boy, iPods, Faux-Emo, Myspace, Panic at the Disco, Crunk, Ringtone Rap, the beginning of cell phone culture with those crappy Razor phones, those Jonas guys, Zac Afron and his sh!tty hair, Hannah Montana etc., etc.

How can anyone defend that crap!? And how is any of that at all similar to 2000-2002? It isn't. At all.

Yeah, but based off of Zelek's example, 2006-2009 consisted of all that stuff. How are the Jonas Boys better or worse than Justin Bieber? And how is 2004 and 2005 anything like 2000-2002? It's not. It's a bit like 2003 but not anything before that.

Same! It's a nasty trend. I don't get why people find the need to insult other people's childhoods just to make theirs feel better, it doesn't work. I actually first noticed it with the 80s kid trend in the early 2000s but it wasn't as bad since it wasn't on the Internet, where things tend toward the extremely absurd.

He was super popular in Canada in 2009  ;D We had an exchange student from New Zealand comment on it too, "I never heard about Bieber in New Zealand, and when I come to Canada no one shuts up about him. "  ;D

I can understand there being an 80s kid trend, but due to it not being everywhere on the internet it was as bad. When things reach the internet (which is the case for everything nowadays) that's when it starts to get crazy. And the fact that people must insult other people's childhoods just for to make their own childhoods look better just seems stupid.

Spend enough time on the internet and you’ll eventually come to the realization that "90’s kid" is just code for "really sad, nostalgic adult"

Now I have nothing against 1990s kids who love their childhood yet don't go on the internet and start making fun of younger people. Just that they're in the minority. Especially back in 2011-2013.

Thing is that children of the 80s actually are superior to everyone else that came after us. It's written in the history books. ;D

My little sisters were obsessed with him when they were 3/4, so in 2009 he would be known among non-internet users. I think he might've become popular late 2008, but I don't think I heard of him then, other than in the Bible and other prophecies.

Just realized we may have derailed this topic.

Ehem... anyways.  I'm a bit confused as to why some people claim things as 90s when they came out in the 00s. I mean I can understand if they have a similar vibe, but you must remember that culture is not limited by year number. A year number is nothing more than just a number that we can use to measure time. Culture on the other hand can change or stay similar at any time (it's why 2002 and 2009 or 1991 and 1998 don't feel similar yet are in the same decades). But whenever I see something that was released in a year that's is similar to 199X then it's from the 1990s. But if it's 200X then it's from the 2000s. Not sure why people would mix up the two.

This is solid evidence.

Yeah, yeah....


Didn't know 90s kids were hipsters who thought it was cool to not wear pants.  :o Looking at these pics makes me curious on what kids looked like between 2000-2002. And what they looked like from 2004 onward.

Pokemon, Dragon Ball Z and Yugioh are  among my favourite shows.


And that's fine... Just don't go off making "husbandafus" with the characters. This waifiu business is already the worst.

All the hipsters are "90s kids."

Just realized we may have derailed this topic.

Ehem... anyways.  I'm a bit confused as to why some people claim things as 90s when they came out in the 00s. I mean I can understand if they have a similar vibe, but you must remember that culture is not limited by year number. A year number is nothing more than just a number that we can use to measure time. Culture on the other hand can change or stay similar at any time (it's why 2002 and 2009 or 1991 and 1998 don't feel similar yet are in the same decades). But whenever I see something that was released in a year that's is similar to 199X then it's from the 1990s. But if it's 200X then it's from the 2000s. Not sure why people would mix up the two.


I always felt like the whole #90sKid thing was a Tumblr/Twitter meme venue for people to share their nostalgia, but some people take it as some badge of honour and like to think they're in some special club.

Makes me wonder if 10's kids will start claiming 00's things as 10's things. I also hope I don't see any 00's kids arguing with 10's kids in the future.

I think it's already happening preemptively. I remember mqg linked some "2000s kid" video, and the girl talked about how 2000s kids were the last generation to play outside or something.

Jokes aside, feeling superior because you were a child during a certain time is really f*cking stupid. Childhood nostalgia is fine but I find it insane that people out there consider their childhood to be their most defining moments let alone use this to bully kids younger than them. The whole 90s nostalgia internet phenomenon is the dumbest thing and it's soiling the decade quite a bit.

Well, people in 2000-2002 look pretty much how you'd expect them to look. 2003 is a melding of Y2K and real 00's styles and 2004 is pure 00's from there on out.

2004 and 2005 is the era of American Idiot-era Green Day, Fall Out Boy, iPods, Faux-Emo, Myspace, Panic at the Disco, Crunk, Ringtone Rap, the beginning of cell phone culture with those crappy Razor phones, those Jonas guys, Zac Afron and his sh!tty hair, Hannah Montana etc., etc.

How can anyone defend that crap!? And how is any of that at all similar to 2000-2002? It isn't. At all.


Jonas Brothers, Hannah Montana, and Zac Afron do NOT belong in the 2004 and 2005 category. Those are late 2000's trends.

Feeling special or superior for something you have no control of is stupid. Being born a certain year means nothing more than the fact that your parents decided to have sex around that time. That's all it'll ever mean. I can't quite remember the first time I started seeing the whole 90Kid trend other than the fact that it was sometime in 2011. I think I started seeing it either on Youtube, Facebook, or some Internet threads. I'm always understanding of the fact that kids today will grow up differently than me, but I use that against them or to make myself look good. A person should use their life accomplishments as a badge of honor and not stupid things like cartoons or video games. The fact that someone feels special because they saw a cartoon of all things is the textbook definition of stupid to me.

Really? I coulda sworn that stuff came out in 2005. My mistake but everything else I posted still stands. 2004 still had sh!tty Zac Afron hair even if Zac Afron himself didn't get big until a few years later. Wasn't he on some Nickelodeon TV show in 2005, though? I coulda sworn he was.

I agree. Jonas Brothers was definitely late 00s. Miley Cyrus's show began in 2006, and High School Musical became big in 2006.

The 90s kids did this as well several years back. I saw a thread from 2006 regarding 90s nostalgia (when it was getting started) and some others were complaining that the 90s kids were putting some 80s things as 90s things.

It's partially why I hate nostalgia. Nostalgia is great as even I'm caught feeling nostalgic for eras like the Y2K era. But to me my childhood is not my most defining moments. It's a very special time of course, but to me a person's teen-adult years is what defines them. A child is usually ignorant to too many things for it to be the greatest defining moments. The 1990s nostalgia was fine at first. And then things got out of handle. Pretty much got to the point where it sort of ruined the 1990s decade for me.

True. From some old 2000-2002 commercials that I've seen I was able to notice the fashion the kids were having. Backwards hats, bright clothing, spiky hair, Pukashell necklaces etc (and the fact a ton of the commercials would involve kids skateboarding or something). 2003 was a mix. And 2004 onward has noticeable changes.

Must've been the very early days of 90's nostalgia as I didn't even notice any in 2006. And yeah I've seen 1990's kids putting 1980's things as 1990's things.

Yeah, same for me. I love the 80's and I think it's the best decade ever by far but when it comes to my life and the things that affected me, the 90's and early 00's are my era. Unfortunately, these "90s kids" come by with their bullsh!t nostalgia which kind of sours the decade. Nobody's better or worse than anyone else because of when they were born or what era they lived though. That's a stupid way to think. Nobody they don't bother coming out of the basement.

Pretty much all this. 2003-2004 things got more plain and 2000's-like.

Ehh... seems accurate enough to me. Although the Amanda show is from the 1990s it's from REALLY Late 1990s (October 16, 1999 with the first 6 episodes of season 1 being in late 1999 and the other 7 of being in early 2000). And it didn't end it's run until Late 2002 (September 21, 2002). I see 00's kids claim this show as a 2000s kid show, but I can understand that. Only aired in the 1990s for around 2-3 months while it aired in the 2000s for nearly 3 years. It's in a similar situation with Ed Edd n Eddy, Rocket Power, Spongebob, Family guy, Pokemon etc. But anyways that fashion is pretty much sums up early '00s kid/teen fashion to me.  Kind of curious on if they ever had reruns of that show.

It was supposed to premiere in 1998 but was bumped up to 1999 so it is around that 1998-2002 time period. Very much of it's time (though, the show lasted until 2009 but I don't know what the later seasons are like).

The later seasons take place after the summer. So now you'd see the characters going to school again. It's like the earlier seasons, but just in school. Although there are some episodes of them not in school.

Yeah typically for Nickelodeon shows once the show ends, it stays culturally relevant through reruns. For instance, while I can't say I grew up firsthand with shows like Rocko's Modern Life or Angry Beavers, I still remember the shows being relevant for kids my age from like 2001-Mid 2003 when it was still shown regularly on the channel via reruns. Heck they still show reruns of Drake & Josh and iCarly on Nick right now!

Yeah Ed, Edd, n Eddy was the sh!t I feel like the crazy, goofy, and violent (in a fun way) characters just screams RADICAL Y2K ERA!!!

In 1994 I looked exactly like a mini DJ Qualls. Hair, flannel and all (funny thing is this movie's not even from the 90s. It's 2002).

It's still wacky and the fashion for the most part is similar. Basically just a show that has episodes in the mid-late '00s, but the time period within the show is still the same as the earlier seasons.

No, Hannah Montana started in 2006. From what I remember, Zac Afron including all the other High School Musical stars (modern day Grease imo) didn't get popular until High School Musical came out in 2006. The Jonas Brothers did start in 2005 but the band peaked in popularity throughout the late 2000's, even the TV series didn't start until 2009.

I didn't care as a kid, I liked all of 'em. Even though I agree that the neighborhood episodes were A LOT better. I also enjoyed the Christmas special from 2004 as well. It's the best CN series of my childhood hands down. This was the CN show that stuck with me the whole time I watched CN, perfect slapstick humor, and an epic group of characters that you could relate to as a boy. I couldn't say the same for many other CN shows.

Also, even though Ed, Edd n Eddy still played reruns throughout the mid 2000's, it seemed like there weren't that many new episodes at the time. It was spread out a lot from 2005-2007. From 1999-2004 from seasons 1-4 there were new episodes on a regular basis.

Yeah, 2004 is when they switched to digital animation which is around the time I stopped watching the show (not for that reason in particular. I just lost interest).

Man, that is really boring! I'm glad I stopped watching. When I think of the Y2K era I always think of a bunch of dudes (that look like the dell dude) getting up to trouble, skateboarding and scheming in suburbia not sittin' around in some boring classroom!



No, Hannah Montana started in 2006. From what I remember, Zac Afron including all the other High School Musical stars (modern day Grease imo) didn't get popular until High School Musical came out in 2006. The Jonas Brothers did start in 2005 but the band peaked in popularity throughout the late 2000's, even the TV series didn't start until 2009. 


Oh, ok. Thanks for telling me this!


It's still wacky and the fashion for the most part is similar. Basically just a show that has episodes in the mid-late '00s, but the time period within the show is still the same as the earlier seasons.


Do you agree with Ocarina Fan that the show did the Fonzie during seasons 5-6 or did you enjoy it 'til the end?

Yeah pretty much. The animation slightly changed and the premise of the show changed from the colorful and adventurous cul de sac, to a very dull and boring school :P

For some reason, the Internet tends to lump things that came out around 2000-2005 into their conception of "the 90s". For example, I've heard people call the show Lizzie Mcguire 90s, even though it aired from 2001-2004. That's not just post-2000, but mostly post-9/11 as well (which, according to many, was when the 00s really came into their own).

There are also people who say The Sims 1 is a "90s game", even though it came out squarely in 2000.

I'm guessing this is because people born in the mid-90s want to think of themselves as "90s kids" (though they're really 00s kids), or because 2000-2004 carried on many aspects of late 90s pop culture.

Still, I find this strange, as nobody says early 90s shows like Adventures of Pete & Pete, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Clarissa Explains it All, Saved by the Bell, or Full House are "80s shows", even though you could argue the early 90s felt quite a bit like the late 80s and are "technically 80s" if you want to stretch it.

Ehhh... I preferred when the show was in the Cul-de-sac, but I didn't mind seasons 5 and 6. I suppose the whole being in school idea was okay due to it keeping things interesting I guess. Now the thing is Season 4 was supposed to be the last season if I remember correctly. The final episode was supposed to be "Take This Ed and Shove it" was supposed to be the series finale. The episode was where in the end Ed, Edd, and Eddy were old. It was supposed to show that ALL of the episodes before that one was really just them dreaming about the memories of their past. But since the show got renewed for more seasons that idea for Season 4 being the end was later ignored and just seen as "some wacky thing that happened, but isn't really canon overall". So if Seasons 5-6 seem weird well that's due to them not being planned originally. They weren't even supposed to exist.

NOPE! Even when they're in school you still don't see anyone else except for the main cast of characters. No other students or teachers. It's actually kind of disturbing when I think about it.

I can definitely see how that would mess up the show a bit. It sucks they had to take it out of a Cul-De-Sac setting, too.

Toy Story 2 while having its theatre release late 1999, had its VHS release in 2000 which is when most kids must have watched it.

Apparently, that was the first movie I saw in the cinema, which was when I was 3, but I don't remember it despite remembering seeing the first Toy Story movie on VHS when I was 2.

That kind of logic where they use that, is one of the reasons why I joined InThe00s. I don't even think they would care, since they're either obsessed with games, modern cartoons, or modern pop culture in general.

HA! How the heck is 2007 even 1990s?! Yeah it seems that "90s" means year that feels old. That logic is very odd. That's basically saying that any year from 2000 onward doesn't feel old nor will it ever be seen as old just because it isn't a part of the 1990s. To me an old year is one where the culture isn't as relateable to the culture of today. To me the early-mid '00s feel old due to the culture being different from the mid '10s. Yeah I can imagine only seeing kids on youtube saying something stupid like that.

By the time we got around to 2005 the early '00s culture was pretty much gone. 2004 was the last year to shake off any early '00s influences. Yet even that year was mainly core 2000s.  It just annoys me how I'd see a 10+ comment chain of replies on youtube and nearly all of them just frustrate me. Now an opinion is an opinion. And my opinion shouldn't be seen as fact either. But saying that the early '00s ended around 2005 is just weird. Next they'll say the core '00s ended in 2010 or something.

They say that 2007 was in the 90s, because they probably thought they're 90s kids. But most 90s babies are over 20 years old, so I suppose to should be nostalgic about their actual childhoods.

My thoughts exactly. I'm still not even sure why people still want to be seen as 90s kids or related to 90s kids. Again that logic is stupid. "If it's old than it must belong to the 1990s or must be related to the 1990s in some way." This is basically their mentality. If the year doesn't feel like the 1990s then it isn't old. To me 2005 feels overly 2000s, but it's because of that on why it's old to me. We're now in 2016 which feels overly 2010s and doesn't relate to 2005.

I can't quite remember the video as this happened a while back. But it was basically a video talking about the years 2002 & 2004, and saying things like the "early '00s". I'm actually trying to find it again as I remember replying to it as well.  I was saying something along the lines of "the early '00s feel was pretty much gone as we got to the end of 2003". With the someone else replying with "2004-2005 still had some late 1990s & early '2000s things in them". After that it sort of turned into some 90s kid & 00s kid argument. After left right when that happened as topics like that can be stupid especially when discussed by youtube commentators.

Also when talking about youtube comments I'm so surprised to see so many 2000s born on their. Seeing so many people born from 2001-2003. Even one from 2006. They're all saying how they liked the 2000s and how it's better than the 2010s. Just look at any 2000s nostalgia video and you'll see them.

2000-2002 is what the 2000s were like initially. To me it's 2004-2009 that don't belong with the '00s due to the culture not being that way at first. But then again if the years are between 2000-2009 then it's a 00's year to me. I can't go splitting decades as I'd bring some confusing.

I didn't care as a kid, I liked all of 'em. Even though I agree that the neighborhood episodes were A LOT better. I also enjoyed the Christmas special from 2004 as well. It's the best CN series of my childhood hands down. This was the CN show that stuck with me the whole time I watched CN, perfect slapstick humor, and an epic group of characters that you could relate to as a boy. I couldn't say the same for many other CN shows.

Also, even though Ed, Edd n Eddy still played reruns throughout the mid 2000's, it seemed like there weren't that many new episodes at the time. It was spread out a lot from 2005-2007. From 1999-2004 from seasons 1-4 there were new episodes on a regular basis.

The last seasons of the Ed Edd n Eddy were GARBAGE! They SUCKED!! The show jumped the shark in the 05-06 sseason!

Late 2003 is when where I'd end things. Only early '04 (January- February) had SOME early '00s culture in it. But it's mainly core. 2007 is far removed from the early '00s culture.

This can get confusing as the '00s can be said to start around 1998 (like how the '10s sort of started by '08). So the what-if '00s is 1998-2002.... or in other words... the Y2K era (heck Y2K means 2000 which is a 2000s year). Makes me hate how culture works and the things/people who are responsible for the change sometimes. If the 2000s was just like the 2010s in terms of culture consistency then we'd be having years like 2007 feeling like 2002/3 or something.

As I've mentioned before, it seems strange to me that people would claim 2000-2003 things as being "90s things" — even with the argument of "the early 2000s were technically still the 90s!".

You don't hear anyone call Ren & Stimpy an "80s show" — it's purely a 90s show, even though you could just as well argue the early 90s were "technically still the 80s!" Likewise, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air — which aired from 1990 to 1996 — is widely considered an iconic 90s show, even if you could argue that "It's still 80s because the characters dressed like the 80s!" or "It premiered when the Cold War was still going on!" But then, I've never heard anyone say that on the Internet.

However, Lizzie McGuire — which aired from 2001 to 2004, and reruns from 2004 to 2006 — seems to be considered a "90s show" by users of Instagram, Snapchat, Buzzfeed, etc.. And what's even stranger is that it's mostly a post-9/11 show, taking out the people who claim the 90s ended on 9/11.

Makes me hate how culture works and the things/people who are responsible for the change sometimes. If the 2000s was just like the 2010s in terms of culture consistency then we'd be having years like 2007 feeling like 2002/3 or something.


Yeah, what-if 00's is just another name I have for the Y2K era. I'm glad the 80's were pretty consistent but yeah the 90's and 00's are really changeful years. It'd be pretty rad if the entire 2000's was like 1998-2002! Then we could really say the 00's started in 1998! I dunno if the world could handle that much Xtreme!, though. It might make some heads Xplode!


As I've mentioned before, it seems strange to me that people would claim 2000-2003 things as being "90s things" - even with the argument of "the early 2000s were technically still the 90s!".

You don't hear anyone call Ren & Stimpy an "80s show" - it's purely a 90s show, even though you could just as well argue the early 90s were "technically still the 80s!"


I consider 1990-1992 the 80's. Even an album like Nevermind I consider an 80's album.

Well, not exactly. Hair Metal was still popular into 1992 and it actually died around 1993. Grunge was also pretty popular in the underground (oooh, spooky!) during the 80's as well. As strange as this sounds, Kurt represented the last of the 80's to me. Even he himself loved the 80's and all that cheese.

However, Lizzie McGuire — which aired from 2001 to 2004, and reruns from 2004 to 2006 — seems to be considered a "90s show" by users of Instagram, Snapchat, Buzzfeed, etc.. And what's even stranger is that it's mostly a post-9/11 show, taking out the people who claim the 90s ended on 9/11.


To me 9/11 isn't where things changed. Even without 9/11 the decade would've changed anyways due a TON of other things that happened. 9/11 probably just caused the change from the '90s to '00s to speed up by a few months, but things would've still changed with or without it. Shows like Lizzie McGuire ran mainly between 2001-2004. But even after the 9/11 event I didn't notice a change in the later episodes. Cartoons/TV shows all felt consistent. Same with video games and comics. Or whatever else was in kid-teen culture pre and post 9/11. 2000-2003 felt consistent to kids-teen culture to me until things began changing as we got to the core '00s. If you were an adult or late teen when 9/11 happen than maybe you'd see a difference. But young teen or kid culture didn't have that big of a difference or an effect on kids or young teens. Well that is unless you lived in the exact area of the attacks. But I loved on the opposite side of the United States. From what I remember things felt the same in my area.

Yeah I personally find it very odd someone considers Lizzie McGuire a 90's show because that show was a part of my childhood and I watched it so many times. The show came out in 2001, it has nothing to do with the 90s.

I remember Pepsi was obsessed with Rap Metal bands and every Pepsi Blue commercial in 2002 was Rap Metal this, Rap Metal that. Yo, yo, yo my momma make me sad but diz Pepsi make me glad.

Yeah, I'd say that's still pretty Xtreme! I remember in 2000-2003 when every Nu Metal, Rnb and Teen Pop band had to have a remix album or two. Thank god that trend never hit the Pop Punk circles. It should of come out earlier because it woulda reached it's full potential competition-wise and fit in better with the culture. Sprite were late to the game and the last of their kind. Sprite Remix, right next to the Pepsi Suicide and Coke Gloom.

From a political standpoint the 9/11 and the Cold War brought a change, but from an everyday life standpoint things didn't change all that much. People say everything after 9/11, but it makes want to ask them if their own lives were effect by it (which in most cases it wasn't unless they lived in the area of the attack or if they were a late-teen/adult who fully understands the significance of economical situations).

The purest, truest form of the 90's died in 1997. The late 90s died in 2004. 2002 is 100% acceptable to say as late 90s in my eyes but it's no 1995.

I agree with this. Even as a 19 year old at the time, it still didn't change how I felt. That wacky vibe was still very much strong all throughout 2002. Spiky bleached hair, Nu Metal, Pop Punk, Xtreme! drinks/food, Tony Hawk, etc. This is all stuff I saw on TV and lived through in real life. It was all wacky and in-your-face back then.

Now I'm just getting confused on terms "Y2K/millennial" to the point where I question there point of even being made or used. Y2K means both Late '90s and early '00s and not just late '90s. If it just meant late '90s then why bother calling it Y2K? Why not just call it late '90s? Heck Y2K means 2000 which isn't even a part of the 1990s. The late '90s can be said to truly begin around 1998 due to 1997 being still mainly a core 90's year. The early '00s didn't end until late 2003 or early 2004. So the beginning of the true late '90s is 1998 and the ending of the early '00s is around 2003. Which is why I always see the Y2K era as 1998-2003. And most things that can define the Y2K era were actually still around in 2002 based on video games, commercials, tv shows, music, movies, the Xtreme trend, fashion and other things. If you're going to end the Y2K in 2001 due to it being the last year of '90s culture then what's the point of even calling it Y2K? Just call it late '90s then. As mentioned before there's no point in naming the era after the year that isn't even in the '90s.

Just because 1997 was core doesn't make it mid 90s. It's still late 90s, it was just core! It was a transitional year. I even like to refer to late 1996-mid 1998 as the true cultural late 90s. and late 1998-2001(millennium era) was it's own thing. It was the ultimate transition from the 90s to 00s.

You seem to confuse core with mid. I never said 1997 was a mid 1990s year. I just said 1997 was a core 1990s year. When I said that 1998 can be when the late '90s began I was talking about culture and not its numerical placement in the decade. Late '90s mathematically can be said to start sometime in late 1996, but that is still a "core" year culturally.

How funny. Nope! Eazy, I may be an idiot, but to me 1997 isn't mid. Any year with a 7 at the end is in the late part. At least mathematically. Culturally it depends on how things are.

Core to me is when a decade's culture is reaching its peak. Mid to me are the year numbers in that're in the middle of the 10 years within the decade. Early and Late for some reason stay the same names for some reason. So for them it can be the first/last few years AND the culture that took place within those years.

Here's another example of what I'm talking about: Salute Your Shorts and Hey Dude are shows that ran around 1990-1993 - which you could argue were "Still technically the 80s!", as people like to argue that "The 90s didn't end until 2004". I have never heard anyone refer to those shows as "80s shows" - in fact, they're QUISSISENTIAL 90s nostalgia shows on the Internet.

Full House ran from 1987-1995 - 3 years in the 80s vs. 6 years in the 90s - and NOBODY ever calls it an 80s show. It's 90s through and through.

By contrast, the show Samurai Jack ran from 2001-2004, yet I've heard people say it's a "90s show". Powerpuff Girls ran from 1998-2005 - 2 years in the 90s vs. 6 in the 00s, more years in the 00s vs. 90s than Full House had in the 80s vs. 90s - yet most people see it as 90s.

That's stupid! Salute Your Shorts and Hey Dude are most definitely not quintessential 90's shows whatsoever. 90s nostalgia basement dweller nuts think we were rid of the 80s once 1990 came around but I disagree with that 100%. Those are 80s shows in my mind. You know what is a 90s show? Beavis and Butthead.

Saved By The Bell is also 80s. The styles and trends shown in that show weren't at all relevant throughout the real 90's.

It still makes no sense. You can feel the mightiness of the 80's in those shows. Saved By The Bell, Hey Dude, Salute Your Shorts are all 80s holdovers in my mind. How are those shows 90s-defining, anyway? Even Full House. It aired long during the late 80s and post 80s 80s than it did in the real 90s.

Also, this is off-topic a bit, but would you consider something like Adventures of Pete & Pete an "80s" show? Does it have an 80s feel? It started in 1991, and ran until 1996.

I've always considered Salute Your Shorts and Hey Dude to be 90s shows. Part of that is because they both ran reruns for almost the entire decade. I know people get caught up in the whole numerical vs. cultural debate, but there comes a point where something is what it is. Both of those shows are closer to the core 90s (numerically AND culturally) than the core 80s (although they don't really belong to either).

I think people sometimes focus too much on the millennium era when talking about the 90s and lose track of how dated most of the decade really is. "80s influence" (for lack of a better term... "old-schoolness" might fit better) lingered all the way up until the millennium era.

Well, what do you make of this drink, Sprite Remix (which they're selling again in the Southeast, BTW)? Is it an x-treme drink? ;D It was first produced in 2003 - which you consider a bit iffy in extremeness - and continued onto the "lame" years of 2004-2005.


I didn't care for those remixes.

That's a good point. Those shows felt too goofy and fun to be a part of the 90s, in my opinion. I watched them a lot as a kid and consider 1990-1992 a different era than the rest of the decade (especially around the time Beavis and Butthead premiered. That changed everything for me). But yeah, factually, they're 90s things. They aired during 199X.

What I've noticed is people mix up the whole decade. I've read things that paint the decade as if we played with the SNES and pogs while listening to both Vanilla Ice and blink-182 back in 1999 or something.

Most of (if not all) of their articles are just clickbait. Clickbait that is too cancerous to even read without cringing. Buzzfeed/ Facebook and many other articles or social sites tend to write some pretty dumb things. I got sick of Buzzfeed back in 2014 due to hating nearly all of their articles. They tend to paint an inaccurate picture of the things they talk about. I was never a Facebook guy as I'm not a fan of social media (nothing wrong with it. I just lack the interest).

When you ever have moments where you must prevent yourself from clicking a website's article due to it probably being stupid then you know that website is going downhill. I'm having the same issue nowadays as well. Certain websites that I used to love visiting a few years I stopped going to during them the over use of clickbait articles. Websites due to get more traffic which annoys me.

Harlem Shake was amazing! I went to my university's Harlem Shake and had a grand time! Unfortunately the camera angle was awful so the video was pretty lame. Making the video itself was pretty fun though. I wish I was at my brother's university when doing the Harlem Shake, now theirs was epic.

I really can't stand this whole "90s kid" thing. Not sure what's worse. The actual 90s kids who act like jerks to younger people (again a 25 year old shouldn't be arguing or making fun of 15 year old. One would assume the 25 year old would have better things do...but NOPE!). Or the people who try so hard to make themselves look like 90s kids. Being a 90s kid does not make someone better not does it mean they had better stuff. Also being seen as a "90s kid" will not change how your childhood was. Heck it won't change anything!

What's funny is you have both non-90s kids and actual 90s kids try to claim 2000-2004 (or freaking 2007  :o) as the 90s. I'm trying to find this House of Mouse (which is a 2001 show) intro song video on youtube where most of the comments were like "Like if you were a 90s kid and you saw this everyday" or "Disney was so awesome in the 90s".

I think some of those cartoons on Kids WB, especially during its 1995-2000 era, were very mature. My dad even told me some adults liked Pinky & the Brain, Animaniacs, and Superman: TAS since it had a mature feel to them. Animaniacs being a Looney Tunes spin-off and Superman: TAS being based off comic books. I think I would have still enjoyed cartoons much longer had I been born in 1986. As a 1996 born I know lot of cartoons got dumbed down badly to the lowest common denominator throughout the 2nd half of the 2000's decade.

Fox Kids turn into FoxBox and 4Kids in 2002, ABC OSM turned into ABC Kids in 2002, and Disney Afternoon was simply gone since 1998. In my honest opinion, I'll rather be an early-mid 2000s kid than be a 90s kid. I'll rather be born in 1995-1997 than being born in 1999.

Heh, I found ANOTHER one of these on Facebook.

http://i.imgur.com/b6TyywA.jpg

Question for Jordan: is this an "x-treme era" show? It came out in mid 2003 - which you would say is x-treme enough - but continued into the "lame years" of 2004 and 2005. It's got an angular art style, common in Y2K-era shows.

This is another one of those shows where "those damn Millennials born post-87" seem to be smitten with fictional characters on the Internet.


I woudn't even consider that early 2000s let alone 90s  ;D Wow, that is not even close.

Well, when I was saying age out, probably I would have watched the 95-96 season, and SOME of the 96-97 season for Pinky & the Brain,Animaniacs, and early Superman TAS. But I MOST LIKELY wouldn't have enjoyed it like Nick, Fox kids, Disney afternoon etc.


Oh, I get what you're saying now. As for Nickelodeon and FOX Kids I agree, the changes that happened throughout 1997 would have probably turned me off, but I'd probably be into Kids WB longer though, maybe even as late as 1999 call me crazy  ;D since a lot of Looney Tunes and spin-off shows were on the air and comic book shows, heck, some of Kids WB's earlier shows carried on from FOX Kids mid 1995 & earlier.

Even though it's still not the 90s, I will admit that Nick around 2000-2004 did seem very similar to how it was in the late 90s. Very different from 1990-1997 (the "golden age" of Nick), but also very different from 2006-2009 (cgi/flash shows, tweencoms taking over, endless Spongebob reruns).


The 2006-mid 2009 era of Nickelodeon wasn't that bad. At least it didn't have cringe-worthy sitcoms (e.g. The Thundermans, Henry Danger) or terrifying cartoons (e.g. Pig Boat Banana Cricket, Breadwinners, Sanjay and Craig, modern Spongebob and FOP). I can't even get through one f*cking trainwreck that these people put on TV nowadays.

What about the reruns of the golden age shows (Ren & Stimpy, Rocko) on U-Pick Live around 2000-2005? Or Nick GAS playing a lot of the golden age game shows (Legends of the Hidden Temple, Nick arcade) from the late 90s until 2007?

I LOVE Superman though! That show was amazing. Unfortunately the N64 game it inspired is not so great. ;D

This is getting fun, concerning Nickelodeon I would have probably begun to age out after the 95-96 school year when Rocko and Ren & Stimpy had their last episodes, and quit watching between the 97-98 school year when the Angry Beavers premiered, and Ahh Real Monsters ended!


For FOX Kids, 1997 would have been it for me. X-MEN ended and Power Rangers begun to decline.

I remember reruns of Animaniacs or Tiny Toons being on Nickelodeon or Nicktoons sometimes, but I don't remember enough episodes to have comprehended though. It was probably on death time slots since my vague memories of the shows are usually seeing it if a TV was left on overnight. I know I would have loved the shows had I caught it in its prime, since I already know how much I loved Looney Tunes and Duck Dodgers when I was younger.

I remember when it changed during the FeetFace Era of Noggin and it even still did it throughout a huge chunk of the Moose/Zee era as well.

CN's golden age is more of a late 90's and early 2000's kid thing. Funny thing is, CN's golden age is not quintessential 90's or quintessential 2000's, it's millennial.

That's debatable. But it will depend upon age! For my cohort CN was the best kids network, for the cohort before me NICK was king.
Just like in gaming, for my cohort PlayStation has consistently been king(PS1, PS2,) and for the cohort before me Nintendo was king(NES,SNES).

I don't mean to make this into a Kids WB debate, but imo 1995-1997 was the early age, and 1997-2001 was the golden age but that's me!

That's Simple, a 93er's informative life wasn't too different from mine, the only differences are that 98 and 99 would have been apart of core childhood and the late 00s would have been most of my core teen years.

Having The N was alright. I only watched it when it was Noggin, before they separated as different channels in 2007 (albeit, I stopped watching Noggin around early '07). However, I think The N was simply runs of Degrassi: TNG, and other teen shows.

Well yeah. If a cousin is too much older than you then they obviously won't introduce you to many teen/adult things unless it's age-appropriate. But if they're only 2-3 years older than they can accelerate your childhood by introducing you to some teen things early, because they don't care if it's age-appropriate.

What's funny is my youngest siblings are born between 2008-2014. I may get around to introducing them to certain things. I'm about curious on what there kid/teens would be like.


You're not the only one here! I'm the oldest brother, and all of my younger siblings are sisters, while all of my 1st cousins who live in the same state as me are females as well. I had no older brother or male cousin to look up to  :(

However, I still loved growing up with my sisters and seeing my cousins often. I do have 2nd & 3rd cousins who are male but all of them live out of state and I hardly see them.

So in reality, I was very fortunate to get into some kid culture by late 2001 or the start of 2002, it's a lot easier for younger siblings or younger cousins to get into the pop culture a lot earlier I notice that.

I have older cousins, but we don't live together. And they're only 1-2 years older than me so there wasn't anything they could introduce me to that I already didn't know. But for the most part I also lack an older brother/cousin who I can look up to. Just gotta start making an example of yourself that can help your younger siblings/cousins.

Hey at least you were able to get into it while you were around 5. With no one to introduce you to anything you pretty much had to introduce yourself to kid culture. Same thing for me. But if I were to have an older sibling then they'd be able to show me certain things and help kick start my childhood. It's easier for younger siblings/cousins to get into culture due to you either introducing them to things. But it's the hardest for the oldest born sibling unless your parents introduced you to certain things (mine didn't as they weren't even interested in the things I was interested in).

Make that 5 1/2 then you're really accurate. Even most of 2001 I didn't really know the pop culture well. I had to really discover it on my own too. 2002 is the first full year I can recall pop culture from a kid's perspective and it's the first full year my memories are very clear. Pretty much from Kindergarten or late 2001 and onwards my memories are constant, since I started interacting with the real world more and made real friends. One thing is that when it comes to 2001 in my life I remember it being very uneventful in my family with not much going on, I just stayed home and watched VHS tapes of Veggietales all summer long and other vague stuff in the house. Whereas to 2002 it was a lot more going on in my family, like weddings, family gatherings & parties, going to the movies more, getting into more TV shows, playing older kid toys, etc. I hardly did any of that in 2001. I can remember half of my Kindergarten roster by heart to this day, I have no memory of anybody on my pre-K roster though.

Honestly this really all boils down on person to person. However generally its around age 5 or 6 when memories start to become significantly clear for most people. I personally remember 2001 crystal clear, and I'm a month younger than you ;D. Does that make me better? No! It just means that some people remember develop memories at certain times, nothing more, nothing less.

Although I think if someone who was 5 in 2001, wanted to claim typical core childhood things such as playing Pokemon cards, eating wonderballs, watching Kids WB or ABC OSM, or playing on their N64/PS2, then it isn't as far fecthed as it may seem.

And someone the same age who remembers that year mostly from pre school/early childhood things such as watching Blues Clues or such, then thats equally plausible as well.

Or in my case, you did an equal amount of both core childhood and early childhood cultural things mainly from ages 5-6/7. Once again everybody's experiences are different.

All I can remember from Pre-K is the teacher and what the classroom room looked like, but I can't remember anyone of the other students. When it comes to culture I didn't become aware of it until around age 5. When I began Kindergarten I was unknowingly learning about Kid culture due to interacting with other classmates. Being with the other students and having them introduce me to certain things helped me. I'd learn about cartoons, video games, toys, comics, or whatever else that a 5 year old would see as "cool". And it's a good thing that I can even remember my class mates from Kindergarten as it would upset me if I didn't (well except for this kid named Jasmine who always thought it was funny to throw sand at me on the playground.... hated that kid  >:( ).

Question for Jordan: is this an "x-treme era" show? It came out in mid 2003 - which you would say is x-treme enough - but continued into the "lame years" of 2004 and 2005. It's got an angular art style, common in Y2K-era shows.

This is another one of those shows where "those damn Millennials born post-87" seem to be smitten with fictional characters on the Internet.


Uhhh... What show is this? I've never seen that character before in my life.

It all comes down to the fact that a person can't argue on what someone else had in their childhood. I can't tell you what you had in your childhood or what you would've had at age 5. I didn't take part in your childhood so I can't go claiming what your childhood was like. If someone says that had certain things in their childhood then who the hell am I to say that they're wrong? Heck how'd I know if I'm even right?

I don't remember anyone from my first year of kindergarten (equivalent of Pre-K in the US)  :\'( I remember the kids in second year of kindergarten because I was with them from Grades 1 -6 as well, but overall my memory is the same as yours mqg. My memories didn't become really good until I was 6 (1999), or around 5.5 to be more accurate (really late 1998). For 1997/most of 1998 my memories are very hazy, except the summers where I went to foreign countries. (I guess my brain kicked into hyperdrive because I had a lot to learn in a foreign country, summer of '97 and summer of '98 are almost crystal clear to me).

I agree except for American Dragon. Never liked that show. Or rather I didn't watch it very much due to lack of interest. But Danny Phantom, Kim Possible, and My Life as a Teenage Robot are good.

Also what's with cartoons and starring teenagers that go off to save the world? A teenager spy. A teenager ghost boy. A teenager robot. A teenage dragon. Get "teenager" and add anything after it (Like "A teenager monster hunter") and then BAM you got yourself a new tv show.  ;D

Even sites like NYTimes or BBC have articles written in the "lol so quirky and random bacon and cats of doom XXXDDD" or "15 Facts That'll Blow Your Mind" style nowadays, where 40 year old men act like teenage girls when they're not. Clickbait is poisoning the Internet.

I really can't stand this whole "90s kid" thing. Not sure what's worse. The actual 90s kids who act like jerks to younger people (again a 25 year old shouldn't be arguing or making fun of 15 year old. One would assume the 25 year old would have better things do...but NOPE!). Or the people who try so hard to make themselves look like 90s kids. Being a 90s kid does not make someone better not does it mean they had better stuff. Also being seen as a "90s kid" will not change how your childhood was. Heck it won't change anything!

What's funny is you have both non-90s kids and actual 90s kids try to claim 2000-2004 (or freaking 2007  :o) as the 90s. I'm trying to find this House of Mouse (which is a 2001 show) intro song video on youtube where most of the comments were like "Like if you were a 90s kid and you saw this everyday" or "Disney was so awesome in the 90s".
This whole thing began when the 90s kids started reminiscing nostalgia about the decade too early. Then, it's escalated into a debate about who was a 90s kid and who wasn't and bashing them later on. The argument began I think back in 2009 or 2010 (from reading older posts on this site and others)  and it definitely got out of hand. Ever since then, people want it to end so badly thanks to the poorly handled nostalgia. If it would have started much later and just being nostalgic without bashing others, the 90s nostalgia would have been much better.

The reason why is that to them, the first half of the 2000s still had the classic 90s atmosphere that lingered on for a long time. In addition, some of them even still think the 00s were awful because of certain events. What they may have forgotten is that there are positives and negatives for each decade. That's why there needs to be balance as having more of one or the other for anything makes it unbalanced. Not everything is going to be happy, nor is it going to be bitter either.


Yeah, I think they're made by people who are 16-20 years old, who are clearly 2000s kids. I wish people like them realize that they weren't even kids in the 90s.
Yeah, they should know that there's nothing wrong with being a 00s kid. Heck, the same group were kids in the early 00s. That should be enough for them.

And Showtime (If you watch the channel)


Well being born in 1992 would be cool. I'll be a late 90s/early '00s kid. I'll witness watching anything from Nickelodeon's golden and silver age, CN's Powerhouse, ABC OSN and Kids, the golden age of Nick Jr, and other networks. Especially when I'll be seeing Clinton and Bush Jr. as presidents when I'm a kid.



I'm glad to be a 95er, but man being a 1992er would have been EPIC! :D
It definitely was. Since I'm basically in close age with them, I watched everything that NYE mentioned. Nick's Golden era, Fox Kids, Early CN Powerhouse, Kids WB's Golden age etc. Ahhh good times  8) 8) 8)

I used to secretely hide my opinion that 2002 isn't Y2K era; I got a Gamecube in 2002 and I considered that a different era from my N64 days in 1998-2001, but looking back I keep warming up to it being a part of the Y2K era. I still find it hard to ignore the fact that things like 6th gen gaming, Windows XP, LCD monitors on computers among other things were very common in 2002, but not 2001. Fashion wise and music wise (excluding teen pop), 2002 and 2001 have a lot of similarities.


A lot of what you mentioned started in 2001 though, and from my personal life and experiences, I still consider 2001 as the transition from late 90's culture to early 2000's culture. 2001 marked the beginning of quintessential early 2000's trends but marked the end of quintessential late 90's trends, but at the same time there were still A LOT of late 90's influences which carried on throughout 2002 and even 2003 too. 2001 equally felt like the cusp between 1999/2000 and 2002/early 2003. Not just numerically, but even pop culturally too.

ShowTime wasn't that good in the 90s. They were like the competitor towards HBO, while they only shown movies. HBO was the sh*t back in the mid-late 90s up to the late '00s.

This whole thing began when the 90s kids started reminiscing nostalgia about the decade too early. Then, it's escalated into a debate about who was a 90s kid and who wasn't and bashing them later on. The argument began I think back in 2009 or 2010 (from reading older posts on this site and others)  and it definitely got out of hand. Ever since then, people want it to end so badly thanks to the poorly handled nostalgia. If it would have started much later and just being nostalgic without bashing others, the 90s nostalgia would have been much better.


I think there are some people who still debate who's a 90s kid or not. But I think anybody born in 1982-1992 would be the case. Seriously, they should go on with that chart and move the f*ck on.


Yeah, they should know that there's nothing wrong with being a 00s kid. Heck, the same group were kids in the early 00s. That should be enough for them.


They probably thought that the early '00s were part of the 90s, so that's why.

I mean the same time you spoke about if you were 14 in 2003. Showtime was decent though in the 00s. Dexter, Weeds, The Tudors, The L Word etc.

Right, but they need to know that people who were kids in the decade (even partially) can claim being one. Most millennials were kids in the 90s.

I think it's because some people told them the early 00s were an extension of the 90s (as they had the atmosphere), but we now know they weren't.

I hate the "your childhood was 41.6% in the 90s and 50.4% in the 00s, so technically you are a 2000s kid" discussions. I'm not going to pretend the late 90s didn't happen to me.  ;D I avoid the stupid labels, there are too many claimers, and being a "90s kid" seems to be a negative thing these days.

ShowTime was alright during the mid-late 2000s.

Well... there were tons of things from the 90s that were still on during the early '00s. Especially late 2001 and 2002.

I hate to nitpick, but that's not exactly the case.

People who are around 19-24 right now (born 1992-1997) are "early-mid 2000s kids". People who were born in 98-99 (17-18 now) are more like mid-late 00s kids, sort of, though the mid-late 00s carried on many elements from the early 2000s.

Pretty negative to me nowadays. One would assume the whole "90s kid" thing would be a harmless trend of people just going on about their childhood nostalgia. But nope! Things ended up getting out of hand. Still don't see the appeal of being a "90s kid" anyways. Not like it'll make your life any better to be seen as a "90s kid". You won't become cooler.

To me just enjoying what you had in your childhood and not worrying about decade kid labels (literally they're nothing but labels) is cool enough to me.

There is nothing wrong with being a '00s kids. And for the longest of time it wasn't an issue to people until the whole '90s kid trend got started. Then we started seeing 90s kids making fun of '00s kids which made the '00s kids feel bad. So the '00s kids try to claim the '90s to stop people from insulting them over things they can't control (no one can control what era they grew up in so why insult them for it?!). This ended up making the '00s kids look stupid as they're clearly '00s kids who didn't grow up in the '90s. I just can't wait for this whole trend to end.

Not that much. The early 2000s were basically late 90s influences. The mid-late 2000s seem like it's own era. By the way, 1992 babies were pretty much late 90s/early 00s kids.

Yeah they're ''real 00s kids'',when it was still the 90s; they were only babies and at the latest preschool age. Hell 3 is still considered a toddler by many.

I hate to nitpick but people who are 17-18 now are not really "early 2000s kids", even though they seem to think so on YouTube comments. They are more like mid-late 00s kids. I mean come on, if you were born in 1999, your childhood wouldn't really "get started" until 2004.

People who are about 19-21 now are early-mid 00s kids.

I actually agree with this. Assuming you mean 19-21 in reference about the age someone's turing this year, I agree that the main early-mid 00's kids would be those born from 1995-1997. 1998 & 1999 could claim their early childhood years as early 00's if they wanted to, but its clear that most of their core years (age 5/6-10) were spent in the mid-late 00's.

If you are going by peak childhood, 1996ers are the prime early -mid 00s kids. 1997ers had a little bit of early, but they are mainly mid 00s.

Personally, I think both 1993 & 1994 are the quintessential early 2000's kids. Being in 1st-4th grade from late 1999-early 2003 (2000-2002 peak) or late 2000-early 2004 (2001-2003 peak). While 1990 born's are the quintessential late 90's kids since they were in 1st-4th grade from late 1996-early 2000 (1997-1999 peak). That makes perfect sense. You said 1997 born's were the quintessential mid 2000's kids? Well, they were in 1st-4th grade from late 2003-early 2007 (2004-2006 peak), which sounds very accurate to me.

Nobody says Pogs are an 80s phenomena, despite them being popular in the early 90s. Not a single person. However, PLENTY of people call Beyblades or Yu-gi-oh "90s things", despite them being most popular in the early 2000s.

Nobody says Nirvana is an 80s band. Nobody says Aladdin is an 80s movie. Rarely do people born in 1985 call themselves "90s kids", even though they certainly are imo (then again, they're probably too old to care). etc.

It's simple, Zelek. The people who says those '00s things are '90s things are all just idiots.  8) Idiots I tell ya. Now I'm a man who respects others opinions and stuff. But me saying that all those things are '00s things is a fact according to the release dates and when they all got popular. Majora's Mask came out in 2000. Everyone's experience with the game is in the '00s. Weekenders came out in 2000. Everyone's experience with the show is in the 2000s. Even Stevens came out in 2000. It's popularity was in the 2000s.  Yu Gi Oh came out in the early '00s meaning its initial popularity is in the 2000s. I can understand certain misconceptions, but the fact that people call '00s things as '90s things is stupid beyond comprehension to me.

You know what ticks me off about this most? The fact that this is what confuses '00s kids into thinking they're '90s kids. For example all those early '00s things you've mentioned are seen as '90s things (which they're not). So a '00s kid will say he grew up with those "'90s things". Next thing you know you see '90s kids insulting the '00s kid for saying he grew up with '90s things. The '00s kid now feels very confused as he/she seen many people call those '00s things as '90s things.

Example.
Article (assume it's some stupid buzzfeed article written by some crazy 90s kid) - "I love '90s shows like the Weekenders"

00's kid - "I grew up with 90's shows like the Weekenders"

90's kid - "No you didn't! You're not even 90's kid and Weekenders isn't even a 90's show!"

00's kid - But all these people/article call it a 90's show.  ???



I'm pretty sure this has happened somewhere.



This whole internet '90s trend is the textbook definition of cancerous!

Lets look a definition of "cancerous" shall we. "A disease characterized by rapid growth of cells in the body, often in the form of a tumor."

Now make some simple edits that relate it to the 90s tend.

"90skid/cancerous" - " A disease characterize by the rapid growth of trends on the internet, often in the form of nostalgia"

And there you have it, folks! This whole 90s trend is cancerous.

Now that's enough of me joking. Also I apologize if this offended anyone who is suffering from any form of cancer.

Well yeah the Apple Ipads came out  on April 3, 2010. Justin Bieber didn't become well known until around 2010 as well. And same thing for Iphones popularity.

I've been getting that impression myself. If it's good then group with the 1990s. If it's bad then leave it as 2000s.  ???

Like I said before, it's utterly strange that people refer to early 90s things as being 90s things and not 80s things, but early 2000s things are somehow "90s" things and not 00s things.

Nobody says Pogs are an 80s phenomena, despite them being popular in the early 90s. Not a single person. However, PLENTY of people call Beyblades or Yu-gi-oh "90s things", despite them being most popular in the early 2000s.

Nobody says Legends of the Hidden Temple is an 80s game show. Nobody says Sega Genesis is 80s. Nobody says Sonic the Hedgehog is an 80s character. Nobody says SNES is 80s. Nobody says Nirvana is an 80s band. Nobody says Aladdin is an 80s movie. Rarely do people born in 1985 call themselves "90s kids", even though they certainly are imo (then again, they're probably too old to care). etc.

Everyone says Even Stevens is a 90s show. Everyone says Pepsi Blue is a 90s drink. Everyone says Mean Girls is a 90s movie. Everyone says Majora's Mask is a 90s game. Everyone says The Weekenders is a 90s cartoon. Everyone born in 1995 says they are a "90s kid", never an 00s kid. Some people even say VANILLA COKE is a 90s drink!

What the f*ck is this sh!t anyway!? Mean Girls!?!?!?! A god damn 90's movie!?

NIgfiSzCy1o

See, I can understand things like Vanilla Coke and Pepsi Blue 'cause those things are XTREME!!! and RADICAL, DUDE!!! and they came out in the mighty 2002 (and taste really good) but things like Sprite Remix? Sorry, no, that is when the 90's was dying. It lasted more in a real 2000's environment than the good ol' early 00's. People need to understand that only 2000, 2001 and 2002  you can disassociate with the rest of the decade (which is originally what us born in the 80's started to do) but nothing else. I'm sorry but 2005 isn't the quintessential early 00's year (in case you're wondering, there is none. All three years are important). That's stupid because the early 00's = rad and the real 00's = bad (not in a good way) and 2005 was BAD! 8-P

Ok, this one's for you Zelek 'cause you keep complainin...

Pogs are from the 80's
Nirvana is an 80's band
Sega Genesis is 80's
Sonic the Hedgehog is an 80's character
SNES is 80's
Aladdin is an 80's movie
Legends of the Hidden Temple is an 80's game show.

There! Now you've seen somebody who thinks all those things are 80's.

I wouldn't be so sure about that. The song "King of Wishful Thinking", even though it was released in 1990, sounds purely 80s - 80s synths, 80s guitar, 80s lyrics, even an 80s-type music video!

But if Family Guy is any indication, more people think of it as a 90s song than an 80s song. Once again, this shows the "early 90s bias" that many people seem to have.

I hate the "your childhood was 41.6% in the 90s and 50.4% in the 00s, so technically you are a 2000s kid" discussions. I'm not going to pretend the late 90s didn't happen to me.  ;D I avoid the stupid labels, there are too many claimers, and being a "90s kid" seems to be a negative thing these days.
Same here. In the end, my childhood took place in both eras. As for the 90s kid thing, it got bad with the bashing, arrogant and supremacy BS.


ShowTime was alright during the mid-late 2000s.

Well... there were tons of things from the 90s that were still on during the early '00s. Especially late 2001 and 2002.


It sure was  :)

and 2003, but very true especially since there are gradual changes occurring throughout the time period.


I wish people told them that. Then we wouldn't get bullsh*t from 90s kids.
It wouldn't have happened if some people didn't bash the 2000s for the negative events.


I hate to nitpick, but that's not exactly the case.

People who are around 19-24 right now (born 1992-1997) are "early-mid 2000s kids". People who were born in 98-99 (17-18 now) are more like mid-late 00s kids, sort of, though the mid-late 00s carried on many elements from the early 2000s.
You're right on that one; however, they were as they were kids in that era despite being very young.

They're totally right about #9, but the rest is pretty silly.  What do they even mean by "movies that are mostly CGI instead of animated"???  Shouldn't it at least be the other way around, even though traditional animation was already losing ground in the 2000s?

Guess they don't know what "animated" means. CGI animated movies are still animated.  Traditional animation was losing ground to computer animation, but in the end its all still animation. And the rest seem silly to me as well.  But this is what happens when a non-2000s kid write a 2000s kid article. The writer didn't grow up in the 2000s a kid (that's what I assume anyways). So it makes me wonder how/why she even wrote it. It's like if you have a 2000s kid write a 2010s kid article despite the 2000s kid being a teen/adult by the end of the 2010s.

I miss sitting at home and watching music videos and watching MTV — Blink 182 and Britney. Also, turning on the radio and hearing songs like TLC 'Unpretty' and 'No Scrubs' and all that. The TV raised me, in a way. I wanted to be Carson Daly; that was my life goal!


There's no way in hell he can be a 90s kid with that. I bet he has older siblings, but yet they all know he's an early 2000s kid.

I have to ask because I see this alot, but how many 5-year-olds were really sitting around watching TRL in 1999?

It just seems like it's becoming an increasingly common thing in the internet age for people to claim that they remember music that was popular when they were in, like, preschool and I just don't get it. I mean, I was nearly 7 when Kurt Cobain died and I couldn't possibly have cared less. I was way too busy watching Rocko's Modern Life or something. I don't even remember watching MTV for the first time until I was around 9 or 10, but, for all I know, maybe kids got an earlier start in the Y2K era.

Sure they weren't pure 90's kids like those born in 1991 and before, but they could at least claim some of their childhood years.

People just want to seem like '90s kids. But here is the issue. I can understand if a kid would remember kid culture. For example I can understand is a person who was 4-5 years old said they watched Ed Edd n Eddy or Courage the Cowerdly Dog in 1999. That's expected. Heck cartoon companies try to aim for the 2-11 audience anyways. But when you have a person who was a kid at a certain time say they watched teen/adult shows or  remember tons of pop cultural things it gets strange. Kids don't become fully aware of pop culture outside of kid culture until their preteen years at the earliest. For example a 5 year old in the 2010s wouldn't understand a lot of 10's cultural things like SJWs or Hipsters. Or understand shows like Walking Dead or Breaking Bad. But they may love/remember shows like Adventure Time or Sonic Boom or something.

A 1994 born's first full year of elementary school and peak childhood would have been 2000. Doesn't make sense to me when people make post like this.


Once again this is subjective based on a a person to person basis. While its scientifically proven and generally accepted that childhood peaks at age 7 & 8, its where core childhood begins where everybody's opinions differs. Many people could vividly remember at age 5, so its perfectly fine if they claim that as a core childhood year, especially since they spend their first year of K-12 Schooling at age 5 for a good chunk of the school year.



Pokémon the Movie for my 1994 brother ;D

Although we went to see Batman & Robin in 1997, he remembers that too unfortunately for him.


LOL ;D. Whats sad is that people try to defend the 90's Batman films! Some even claim they were better then the Dark Knight Trilogy :o



Shrek and Monster's Inc are the only movies I remember seeing in front of the big screen in 2001. I saw a bunch of movies in theaters throughout 2002 though. I think 2012 & 2013 were the years I went to the movies the most ever my whole life.


My first I could remember was Rugrats in Paris in 2000 8)

Damn, I'm not sure if I could watch a movie like that in theatres. My laughter would be too obnoxious for it to be socially acceptable at a theatre ;D

The age you are for most of school year =/= actual year you were that age. I'm talking about all of 1999. Some born in 1994 could have been 5 for most of Kindergarten and maybe 6 for the last few months of it, but that's the 1999-2000 school year, which makes 2000 their first full year of elementary school and peak childhood since they were in 1st grade that year too. Not 1999 as a whole. Before August/September 1999 they were still preschool aged. All of 2000, all of 2001, all of 2002, all of 2003, and all of 2004 would have been most 1994 born's peak childhood on average. Maybe 1998-99 being their peak childhood would have been above average, while 2005-06 still being their peak childhood would have been below average, but 2000-2004 is still average. Even for 1994 born's who's birthdays are later in the year who are still 4 1/2 for a chunk of 1999, no way that'd be a peak childhood year. You could say that 1994 born's peak started in 1999, but 2000 is still their first full year, while 2004 is their last full year and their peak ended in 2005. Most people don't even consider 5 as a peak childhood year yet since they're barely getting out of the preschool stage and just starting Kindergarten (ppl enter K on different levels), but most people still consider 10 as a peak childhood year though, and that is a fact. Just keep in mind, peak of childhood isn't just about how well you can remember things, it's also about how well most people in someone's age group associated with the kid culture too. I'm sorry, but I have to be considerate of other people when bringing out my opinion on this. Everybody born from 1980-1993 had at least one full peak childhood year in the 90's.

It's all really subjective and depends on the person. If a '94er told me 1999 was the best year of his childhood then who am I to say no? So long as it's plausible.

I maybe wrong, but you hardly ever hear 80's babies reminisce strong on their early childhood like this, like they miss it so badly. They are ashamedly proud of growing up in the 90's and 2000's, same goes for 70's babies ashamedly proud of growing up in the 80's and 90's. TBH I see more 90's and early 00's babies reminiscing earlier (barely before their time) pop cultural stuff than anybody, like they are ashamed of their generation or embarrassed to be apart of it, and I'll admit I've been guilty of this many times too, but I've learned my lesson though.

I think there are advantages and disadvantages of being a 2000's teen or 2010's teen. Throughout this decade TV shows and movies have been amazing. If only the lifestyle, political, and atmosphere was like the 2000's or early 2010's again, things would be perfect right now.

That's true, but it's probably just because we're getting old. I mean, pretending like you can remember watching MTV at age 4 might be kind of funny when you're still in high school, but by the time you're closing in on 30, it just starts getting downright creepy.

It wasn't quite as common as it is with '90s babies today, but I do distinctly remember some kids my age embellishing early childhood memories back in, like, 2005-06 when '80s nostalgia was still all the rage. At another forum I posted on at that time, there was one guy born in like 1985 that tried to claim that he was part of Gen X because he had clear memories of Reagan being in office, and the Berlin Wall coming down. Claimed that he could remember Nirvana taking off at age 7, too. ;D

I love this movie, too. Godzilla Against MechaGodzilla and Godzilla vs. Megaguirus are also the early 2000's classics. True purists, such as myself, only watch it on VHS (the way it was meant to be viewed) so if you catch anybody buying the DVD, smack them on the head. Godzilla peaked during this era before going faux-Emo and falling off in 2003. What a fall from grace, I tell ya'.

Yes. The remix of Brain Stew with the extra "Grrrrrs" in the background also expanded my brain.

Power Rangers is crap for low-brow cretins who don't appreciate the sophisticated and finer things in life. Godzilla is a very intellectually stimulating movie. Remember when he crushed that car in that one scene? I felt my brain growing and absorbing more knowledge after that but a low-brow cretin wouldn't understand. 2014 sucked but at least it had Hal; that was cool. Why do you keep being racist!? Haven't you hurt enough people!? >:(


You seriously liked the 1998 Godzilla movie? I must feel sorry for you, man.

The grandeur of Godzilla films is the 2014, directed by Gareth Edwards' "Godzilla", with human drama to anchor the sweeping spectacle of giant monsters smashing everything in sight. With a sequel due in 2018.

This kid born in 1994 may remember the late 90s, but he seems to act like he knows the whole 90s so vividly, and that he's somehow an authority to speak on that decade.
I actually had a similar early childhood to him.

The '89 Batman movie was awesome. It was one of my favorite movies growing up. I love The Dark Knight, but it seems like ever since that movie was released the '89 movie has been sort of dismissed because Heath Ledger's version of the Joker is so much iconic than Jack Nicholson's, and I don't think that's fair. The Dark Knight is great for it's gritty realism, but I also love the '89 movie for it's really quirky, yet dark, "comic book" feel, as well as it's really cool quasi-fifties-with-modern-technology version of Gotham City.

I also loved Batman Returns growing up as well. I think the '80s/'90s Batman series didn't start going downhill until Tim Burton stopped directing the movies and Joel Schumacher took over, starting with Batman Forever.

Yeah, I always define a show as "belonging" to the decade that it lasted for more years in, rather than by when it started. Like, for me, Full House has always been more of a "'90s show", even though it started in 1987, because it did last all the way until 1995. Roseanne started in 1988, but you can't really call it an "'80s show" because it didn't end until 1997. Likewise, The Cosby Show didn't end until 1992, but it's certainly not thought of as a "'90s show" because it ran for 6 years in the '80s prior to that.

I loved that show! To me it's a 2000s show because everything about it screams 2000s (and I watched it in the mid 2000s) but I can see why someone would put it in the same category as Sabrina The Teenage Witch or Buffy the Vampire Slayer and other similar Y2K era shows.

Yeah I agree! It pisses me off when people claim shows like Powerpuff Girls or Pokemon as 90's shows. Or TMNT or Full House as 80's shows. Its about where the episodes aired the most and ran the most, which is the decade/cultural era it belongs to

I agree! Batman '89 is a really good movie and I don't see why people need to dismiss it for the Dark Knight films. They're both very different films with different feels; none of which need replacing. I really like the comic book feel of '89, too. Ever since that movie, I always look for that vibe when I watch superhero movies.

Batman Returns is also rad. I agree, around the time of Forever the series started going down hill but you really didn't notice a huge decline in quality until Batman and Robin (which is one of the worst movies ever created).

Eh those movies were made because of Joel Schumacher, whom made the more child-friendly Batman movies. Tim Burton should be your favorite director for the classic ones.

Very suggestive. It depends on which type of culture you follow or focus on. I agree a lot of the emo or punk stuff from the early 2000's being terrible, but TBH I can't stand any emo/punk stuff from any time period, it doesn't matter to me so I could care less. There's many things about Y2K culture that were awful, like the teen pop music at the time or SOME of the fashion, however, there were many great moments about Y2K culture, like the vibe and the fresh air, the toys, foods, or fads, the last time social media was nonexistent, the TV shows and movies being epic at the time, the hip-hop, R&B, and dance pop music being in a golden age too, etc. If you define real 2000's culture as late 2003 through all of 2007, then it's definitely a suggestive opinion because there's many things about the mid 2000's that weren't as good either compared to the early 2000's.

There's many things about Y2K culture that were awful, like the teen pop music at the time or SOME of the fashion, however, there were many great moments about Y2K culture, like the vibe and the fresh air, the toys, foods, or fads, the last time social media was nonexistent, the TV shows and movies being epic at the time, the hip-hop, R&B, and dance pop music being in a golden age too, etc. If you define real 2000's culture as late 2003 through all of 2007, then it's definitely a suggestive opinion because there's many things about the mid 2000's that weren't as good either compared to the early 2000's.


Yeah I agree theres good and bad in every era in all honesty. Theres no such thing as a perfect decade or era. However I have to agree with JordanK1982 on this one that the Millennium Era (so 1997-2003) was leaps and bounds better than the core 2000's (Late 2003/2004-2007).

Better music overall with. Pop Punk (yes I liked it, don't judge ;D), Nu Metal, Post Grunge, Glam Rap, Neptunes R&B, Techno, Heck even Y2K Era Teen Pop is much better than Emo, Crunk Rap, Snap Rap, 'Dirty Pop', Autotune, and other trash music 8-P

In all honesty I felt like the mid-late 2000's were a pretty bleak time for music looking back, aka the 2005-2008 era. It didn't start to improve until around 2008 with the Late 00's/Early 10's Electropop sound.

I'm going to be real honest Jordan. Real talk, when I first think of emo, the 2004 photo has always came to my mind, not the 2000 or 2002 ones, so you might have a good point here.


I always thought emo was a bad thing. Now people are getting super protective over what counts as emo LOL.

Real 2000s are dope af.


Yeah, if you like rap this and rap that and sissy Faux-Emo MySpace then sure, I guess they're "dope af" (af? What the hell does that even mean? Is that an alien language!?) but if you have taste then they suck.

Yeah, I get ya'. Most people think of the 2004 stuff when they think Emo and it's kinda been what "Emo" has meant to most people ever since. 2000-2002 was a lot different from that entire thing. Completely another world away.

Even in the 80's it was but when kids group good bands like Jimmy Eat World, Get Up Kids, Thursday, Taking Back Sunday, The Used and Jawbreaker with "omg myspace n hawhtorne heights" then I gotta take action.


He's not joking...

Remember, my student, Emo in 2000-2002 meant very different things than it did in 2004. Check the photos above. ;)

I always thought emo meant spiky hair, too many tattoos, chains, piercings in unnecessary places, cutting yourself & leaving marks, dying hair with a random color, suicidal/emotional people, etc.

Throughout middle school and early high school I'd always be scared of judging someone if they were emo or not. I have many former HS friends who have gotten so many tattoos or piercings in college so far, but they are still not emo though. One nose ring, a spiky, short hair style, or one lil' tattoo doesn't mean the person is automatically emo, it depends on how they expose their bodies or take care of it. I have some friends who have a christian cross on their chest, or a dragon on their arm, but they still look like normal people. I've seen and known the finest, hottest girls in the world who have a tattoo or two, or a piercing in the perfect place and it actually makes them look cute!

No, you call them MySpace Faux-Emo. It's not as pretentious as the actual music itself. >:(

No, it wasn't. I still went to shows in 2005 and by then the entire scene morphed into black hair and eyeliner. MySpace ruined it.


I hate emo.

I still hate emo.


And I hate MySpace and From First to Last. Big whoop.

This is definitely worlds apart from the Emo I remember. Before 2003, nearly every Emo band looked like the photos I sent above. It was seen more as a "nerdy outcast who is sad somethings" thing rather than a "depressed suicidal who cuts themselves" thing.

Dude, Heavy Metal sucked throughout the real 2000's. F*ckin' Avenged Sevenfold garbage. You might as well listen to Fall Out Boy since it's basically the same thing.

Last good Hip Hop album was The 5 Boroughs by the Beastie Boys.

I don't think spikey hair is emo, unless by spikey you are talking

http://stylesatlife.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/Extreme-funk-spikes.png

then yeah that's "emo". I don't think tattoos was a thing either, since most were teens who were too young to get tattoos. Cutting yourself, piercings and chains definitely were a thing though, along with wearing long sleeves to hid those cuts. Hair was dyed black, and was also straightened with a straightener.

I don't think I ever misjudged anyone for being emo, I was confused for being emo pretty often though, because I have natural jet black hair, and I had my earphones stuck in my head all the time. I tried to dress colourful to counterbalance it, but sometimes you just want to wear black god damnit.  >:(

Dude, Avenged Sevenfold was the sh*t back in the 2000s. You probably dislike it because of the screaming, which has been around the genre since the early 90s. Come to think of it, Avenged Sevenfold was like the 2000s Pantera.

I don't mind screaming when it comes to late 90's/early 00's Post-Hardcore bands, I just think Avenged Sevenfold is a crappy band. Screaming is even older than that! It's been around since the 80's. Wouldn't call them the 2000s Pantera at all! Pantera is actually a good, heavy band.
