Acceptable in the 90's

Following the massive success of the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie (or 'TMNT', as it now seems to be called) and the huge buzz surrounding the release of 'Transformers' this summer, I've been inspired to develop this nostalgic list of fantastic things I grew up with that deserve to be resurrected. Feel free to add your own.

'Another one bites the dust'. They don't make them like they used to. Remember when the whole country used to stay in on a Saturday night to watch it? None of your X Factor and Prancing About on Ice nonsense. Now being repeated every night at 7pm on digital channel FTN. Tune in just to see Ulrika's massive 90's hair.

Genius. Even just for the hair. Ugly but cute at the same time. Especially the pencil top ones.

Remember when, if your trousers were too short, instead of just saying 'your trousers are too short', people would proclaim 'your budgie has died'? This deserves a comeback.

Dummy necklaces
Who the hell thought of that one? They must have made a mint, I had about 400.

Sweater Shop/NafNaf/Fruit of the Loom jumpers
Cool at the time. Now just lame, I imagine. I propose a resurrection in an ironically trendy way.

'Trapdoor' (pictured)
The best kid's TV programme. Ever.

'The Chronicles of Narnia' TV series
The original and best. Classic Sunday night family viewing. Much scarier than the movie.

I don't really know what to say about this, apart from the fact that it deserves to be resurrected for sheer comedy value. And Roger from 'Footballer's Wives' was in it.

Chomp bars
Are they still 10p? They'd better be.

Take That
Come on boys, come back for good! Oh, wait a minute...
