What can be said about 1993? The start of 1993 was the weakest part of the early 90s. I honestly went to sleep during those last episodes of The Wonder Years, Doogie Howser, MD and Life Goes On :

The worst Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie ever! Everyone knows it.

Kris Kross were the last of their kind, that's for sure. Ironically enough, cheesy rap was dead in 1993.

This came along:

Rap wasn't fun anymore after The Chronic and Doggystyle hit.

It was bad enough that MTV was constantly jamming this junk down our throat:

Boy Meets World was the epitome of things associated with the touchy feely Clinton 1990s. It's right up there with all of the "Hootie and the Blowish", "Counting Crows", "Blues Traveler",  and "Sheryl Crow" albums of that time. What junk! Fred Savage was always the better actor out of the two Savage brothers.

The high point for me, I guess was seeing MJ with Oprah on Feb 10, 1993.
The low point was 2 months later when my grandmother died on April 9, 1993.

I mentioned MJ because that was the last time I remember sitting with my grandmother in her room in back of the house because she loved Oprah and never missed any show or interview she did. (I wasn't into MJ then.) And we watched that at night because it aired in Prime Time.  :-\\
After that we moved...The rest of the year was kind of a derailment in a way.New school new house, etc.

"Basically, 1993 sucked. Aside from Jurassic Park there was really not much going on in media, and there were not many interesting events. Bill Clinton was innaugerated, the Cowboys won the Superbowl (interestingly, that’s a fact that I always know off the top of my head — couldn’t tell you about any other year, but ’93 was the Cowboys), and perhaps the most ridiculous policy of all time landed on the books: Don’t ask, don’t tell."

The hi-top fade disappeared by the fall of 1991.

The flattop haircut reappeared in the summer of 1990, coincidentally, it shortly after Dick Tracy came out.
It lasted well into the mid 90s like most of the new tv shows, trends and musical careers of the early 90s did.

There is no such thing as a "medium hi-top fade". A haircut is either a hi-top fade, a slope fade, a box fade or a flat top.

They're rave pacifiers, some partygoers (on ecstasy) would suck on the pacifiers to prevent themselves from grinding their teeth. The pacifiers were sold at different stores in the mall, to the best of my knowledge. They were very popular from the fall of 1992 to spring of 1993, around April or May, to be exact.

I think young people got the idea to wear them from TLC. We used to imitate our favorite musicians all of the time in the early 90s.

Rave clothing was one of the clothing and accessory trends of the mid 1990s. Of course, the look first turned up in the summer of 1992.

Before you stated "World Trade Center bombing".

A Bush was still the President of the US during the Afghanistan War.

There were plenty of people using AOL, Compuserve and Prodigy online services in 1993.

May I please see your evidence of Millennials and Zers rising higher than past generations?

You did not go into detail before about X-BOX and systems like it. 2 to 4 player games were available in 1993.

You said it all, "They did exist."

NBC was the first to discard a children's programming block, so it's been done before.

LGBT acceptance?
So, according to you, no one bought RuPaul's album in 1993.

More interracial relationships where?

Wolfenstein 3D wasn't realistic in the slightest?

Wasn't there a tablet in the 1968 flick "2001: A Space Odyssey"?

I'm pretty sure there were Lifesaver commercials made with CGI before 1993.

A lot of stuff you have posted may have been available as early as 1993, but it was just not common. Very few people hat internet access, wrote e-mails or were on USENET. This technology was not mainstream, and that's what counts.

A lot of stuff you have posted may have been available as early as 1993, but it was just not common. Very few people hat internet access, wrote e-mails or were on USENET. This technology was not mainstream, and that's what counts.


Still, there were people with internet access and e-mail addresses back then. Nothing new has been introduced since 1993. There were game consoles then and there are some now. Justin Timberlake performs as a recording artist today and he was singing his version of popular songs as a Mouseketeer then. Marvel Comics movies existed before 1994 like they do now.

Damn, I think in 1993, it was the first time I saw a fax machine and was amazed...


Thanks for the laugh.  ;D

Before you stated "World Trade Center bombing".

A Bush was still the President of the US during the Afghanistan War.

There were plenty of people using AOL, Compuserve and Prodigy online services in 1993.

May I please see your evidence of Millennials and Zers rising higher than past generations?

You did not go into detail before about X-BOX and systems like it. 2 to 4 player games were available in 1993.

You said it all, "They did exist."

NBC was the first to discard a children's programming block, so it's been done before.

LGBT acceptance?
So, according to you, no one bought RuPaul's album in 1993.

More interracial relationships where?

Wolfenstein 3D wasn't realistic in the slightest?

Wasn't there a tablet in the 1968 flick "2001: A Space Odyssey"?

I'm pretty sure there were Lifesaver commercials made with CGI before 1993.


Once again, 9/11 had more impact

Are you talking about bush 1?

You still don't understand, I meant  online gaming from xbox and Playstation.

Cops didn't popularized reality shows. Survivor did.

But kids blocks were still relevant during the 90s. Overtime, they were dissappearing

it wasn't accepted as much as now. In the 90s, the LGBT had lots of discrimination.

Today. In the 90s although interracial relationships were legal, they were still unacceptable to most people.

Not as much as today.

Those were probably different from today's.

There were barely any CGI. Most commercials used cell/computer animation.

Also, i must ask are you blinded by the early 90s nostalgia? I've noticed that you talk about the era more positively than others. Did you forget that you were an adolescent and that you were additionally naive in that time period? I mean you weren't even an adult yet. You were still most likely in Jr High or High school.

A World Trade Center bombing already happened prior to 2001, did it not?!

Yes. Father Bush, but a Bush nonetheless.

XBOX and Playstation are gaming consoles, nothing new.

There were reality shows in 1993, popular or not.

NBC Saturday morning cartoon lineup, a children's programming block, was the first to go.

RuPaul rose to fame with her Supermodel (You Better Work It) single. We were getting there.

Please elaborate. Interracial still doesn't go over too well with most people in this time.

Not as much as today? Thank you for conforming that Wolfenstein 3D was indeed realistic.

Have you seen the tablet in "2001: A Space Odyssey"(1968)?

This is barely CGI? :

Yeah, there was one in 1993, but 9/11 definitely had more impact.

That was Iraq, not Afghanistan.

You're missing the point. I said online gaming as in Xbox and Playstation. Not the consoles itself.

Yeah, but there weren't many.

It took more than that. Some laws had to be passed

More people have interracial relationships today than back then.

That game wasnt that realistic. In fact, although it was in 3D it was mostly still 2D

Have you seen it yourself? And first of all, that movie was presented to predict how the future would be like. However, it's still a classic. In addition, there were shows and movies that showed sci-fi technology way before the 90s, but people didnt think the high tech would happen sooner.

I meant CGI wasn't that popular until toy story premiered in theaters. Beforehand it was mostly cell or computer animation.

It seems to me you were still a naive adolescent. Saying anything was better before 1993 is a sign of nostalgia blindness.

Okay, we have gone to war under A President Bush before 1993, correct?

XBOX and Playstation are nothing other than game consoles. Playing video games with people from different states and continents is no different than 'a four player' with friends.

Doesn't matter.

Interracial relationships have been around ever since the races discovered one another.

Then you don't know what a flat top looks like. The flat top revival started way before your time.

There is no such thing as a "medium hi-top fade". A haircut is either a hi-top fade, a slope fade, a box fade or a flat top.

Yes, I'm positive that nothing has changed since 1993. Snoop Dog, political correctness, the Caesar haircut and the Power Rangers haven't gone anywhere.


1993, Rock music was still the dominant form of popular music. Today, it's pretty much dead.
1993, the dominant, biggest selling genre in PC gaming were Adventure Games. Today that genre is a niche genre. In 1993, the RPG genre was thought to be dead. Today it's one of the dominant genres in PC gaming.
1993, it was acceptable for a guy to rock double denim; it was even pretty fashionable. Today, unless you're a hipster and doing it ironically, it's not.

Rap wise after 1993 you had some of rap's most important stars like Biggie, Tupac doing their best works and others like Eminem just beginning to launch their careers. Post 1993 saw the birth and death of Nu-Metal. 1993 saw the debut of Friends, and later in the decade we got groundbreaking shows such as The Sopranos, and later True Detective, Mad Men, and Breaking Bad. Shows that you wouldn't have seen on TV in 1993.

Film saw amazing ground breaking epics like the Lord of the Rings trilogy and the rebirth of comic book films with Nolan spearheading the way with a new, dark and realistic edge to the films, something you didn't see in or prior to 1993.

Political correctness existed prior to 1993 so I don't see your point.

They went to Iraq, but for a totally different reason.

Actually, it is because you're playing online with random people and it's more than 4 players. Online gaming can go up to 16 players.

It was, but it took longer for them to be accepted.

Yeah, but they were illegal and unacceptable. Once again, although it was legalized in 1967, they were mostly still frowned upon until the 2000s. Today, yeah some people still hate interracial relationships, but they are more accepted especially to young people.

It wasn't mobile. I've seen the photos of the tablet.

It was early CGI, right before Toy Story and Nightmare Before Christmas.

Released in 1992 and Before

Mortal Kombat
Twin Peaks (X-Files would never have aired if Twin Peaks did not take off)
Wolfenstein 3D (Doom is a second attempt)
Beakman's World (Starring Beakman, the original Bill Nye)
Beavis and Butthead through Liquid Television
Sim City (1989)


Outside of Conan, the other stuff you mentioned never met the public eye.

1993 is the most overrated year so far.

Oh BTW, I'm starting to agree with ArcticFox on about you being born in 1977. I'm doubting that you're 37/38. You keep explaining that the 90s were horrible, yet you're not backing it up facts. In fact, some of the members on here have discussed some of the pop culture beyond 1993 was awesome were not just coming from the millennials, but Xers as well.


Of course you would agree with Articfox.  ::)

Mxcrashxm, I've seen how defensive you were over that crappy show, Rocko's Modern Life, already. Most Millennials cannot handle the truth about their beloved 1990s. I'll save you the heart attack. :)

It's mainly Millennials on here who reminisce about the mid to late 1990s.

There is a reason why haircuts like the Caesar have been reappearing in society for millenia, and why extreme hi-top fades haven't.

I much prefer The Lion King to The Black Cauldron
I prefer Interview with a Vampire to The Lost Boys (one of the gaytie and Gen X's childhood gems).
The Goonies AREN'T good enough for me.

You're doing it again. I said before not only do millennials love 1990s, but so does Generation X.  Keep in mind that most Xers enjoyed the pop culture and they were between the ages of 10 to 33 throughout the 90s.

Correct. This argument is pointless. However, I was telling Early90sGuy that are people from different generations who love the 90s. Even better, there are millennials and Zers who like 60s, 70s, and 80s pop culture. Even more interesting, there are Baby Boomers who not only love their own culture  (60s and 70s), they loved 80s culture as well.

The 50s just seem so stuffy to me, although I do love the fashion of the mid-20th century.
The 60s are rad but I never connected with the TV shows or movies of the decade, the music is awesome though, but I like 80s music a lot more!
I feel like the 70s just isn't my thing. Never felt connected with anything from the whole decade.
I like 90s, more so than the 50s, 60s, and 70s, but I like the 80s more.

The 80s are my most favorite decade, with the 90s coming in second.

Sorry 90s-haters, but I still love the 90s.  ;D

When he was ordered to testify before Congress, the term 'I don't recall' with regard to Iran Contra appeared 88 times. Yeah, ol' Ronniebear was clean as a hound's tooth. When in reality his Administration and Iran Contra resulted in more Administration officials behind bars then even the Nixon crew. He was dirty as could be and was only running the country in name only in his second term. Don Regan was the actual President from '85 to '89.

I actually find myself getting nostalgic as time goes by for the pop culture from around '00-03. That odd rap rock, Eminem being huge, Evanescence flavored era. Was watching Bruce Almighty (2003) the other day and got nostalgic.

I'd say in general the periods I'm most nostalgic about that I lived in are: 1994-1996 (grunge, post-grunge, mid '90s rap , the films and shows of that era, the fashions) and 2000-2003. I hated '97-99. That for me was just The Spice Girls, N'Sync, Blink 182 and really bland crap that I didn't like.

Cultural Eras I didn't live through but wish I did are

1958-1964 (The 'Maltshop Era', early LBJ years)
1965-1973 (Vietnam, Hippie era, early Heavy Metal period)
1977-1982 (New Wave, Disco)

1997-1999 for me was when things stopped being fun. Both personally and pop culture wise. I never caught on to the Blink 182, Green Day, etc etc fads that were happening around those years. Fashion seemed to go from like, casual, down to earth sort of stuff to stuffy, corporate, preppy sort of 'Friends' looks around that time in my area--Really, this began, as I remember it, toward the middle/end of 1996. As a personal example, my father, who had sported a mullet and sometimes long hair for the entirety of the 1990s, got a short haircut in the Fall of 1996, grew his hair shaggy long early in early 1997, cut it short again in June and stopped wearing double denim around mid 1997...And then in 1998 got this really cropped short corporate looking haircut and began dressing very corporate too. A lot of people I remember around this time, guys, had really short short hair in '97, '98, '99. Women's fashions got more casual but also a sort of preppyness to them but the hairstyles were basically all variants of those worn on Friends.

Musically like I said...I have younger nieces and all I remember hearing about in this part of the '90s was Justin Timberlake and the boys from Nsync and the Backstreet Boys and Christina Aguilera. I remember Mulan and Tarzan coming out and feeling those films lacked the magic of the run of The Little Mermaid through Hunchback.

What I love, I suppose, is the pop culture of the early '90s (most of the games I was playing in say '95, '96 dated from '90-92, and my family as I said until around '97 still dressed early '90s)...And the laid back atmosphere of the mid 90s, when you could let your hair hang down. But then I also loved mid '90s stuff like Beck, Bjork, the Wayne's World popularity (it was still huge as of 1994 when my sister got me the VHS from McDonald's), The Cranberries, things like that.

But there is honestly nothing I can say I like from '97 to '99, the sole exception being Baldur's Gate and The Devil's Advocate.

I don't know most of those. Then again, I was in my early 20s at time. I'm surmising that Superman: TAS only existed because of the Batman: TAS toon. That Batman series must be a spin-off of the aforementioned one. Spider-man cartoons have been around since the 70s, I think. From the description I read on TV.Com, Recess sounds an awful lot like Rugrats. You never know. That Craig Bean that Pepper Ann has a crush on definitely  may have originated from a certain lady with Mayonnaise for a last name. Things that make you go hmm…

Both Arthur and Men In Black: TAS are adaptions.

I have nothing for Mike, Lu and Og, but the lead looks just like Fantastic Max.

There was way more to the late '90s than just that. I don't have an issue with Spice Girls or Blink-182, but all the teen pop was bad. Have you listened to any of the R&B, Hip-Hop, and Rock music of that time? I introduce you to the late '90s:

I had a new found appreciation for all of the "dinosaur" bands that had new music for a new generation of fans.  I know that a lot of them didn't last very long but I loved The Ramones cover of I Don't Want To Grow Up which was originally a song by Tom Waites.  Joey Ramone did an exceptionally good job with that particular song.
Also Urge Overkill's cover of Neil Diamond's Girl You'll Be A Woman Soon which was used in the movie Pulp Fiction was great too.  It seemed that when I was between the ages of 16 and 19 the "Dinosaur" bands ruled.

While 1994 was a better year for music, films and video games than 1993, I would say that '93 deserves special mention on the television front since the two greatest television comedies of all time, Seinfeld and The Simpsons, both reached their creative zeniths that spring. I mean, just try imagining a TV landscape where "Last Exit to Springfield" and "The Junior Mint" aired in consecutive weeks!

1993 was also a huge year for major television debuts. Dr. Quinn: Medicine Woman, The Nanny, Walker, Texas Ranger, Animaniacs, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Homicide: Life on the Street, Rocko's Modern Life, Fraiser, NYPD Blue, and The Adventures of Pete & Pete all started that year.

1993

My hair was super long! And beautiful. Went to school, did homework. That Summer was the best! Spent time with friends. We listened to our Regular FM radio. I don't know if I can post it here, but in our area it was Pro FM. The top 40 was still on, I think it was every Sunday. I COULD remember more, but I'm not in the 1993 nostalgia today :(
