Throwback: What Ever Happen To....

Wow, I just came over nostalgia recently, and realized how much I missed being a kid. Until this day I can still reminisce myself racing straight home after school doing my homework, changing clothes and getting myself situated to be laid out on the sofa, with my remote in one hand and junk food in the other. I still don’t know what happen to all these damn shows, they all just got canceled so swift and blindly. Please tell me WHAT ever happen to Taina? Chicka was destined towards stardom with the theme song, “Gonna Be A Star,” that was everybody and they moma’s jam– kids were singing it in class constantly. Taina was my show man! I also kept hearing rumors that the creators of That’s So Raven stole the primary concept of the show, but hopefully, that’s not the case. Nickelodeon was trippin’ ! They got rid of a lot of good shows The Journey of Allen Strange, An African-American (Arjay Smith) alien child left behind on Earth only to befriend two human children, and it is up to them to find a way to get him back home while they try to keep him a secret from their parents as well as others- the show broke down a lot of barriers inconspicuously when it came to race. But it was thoughtful life lessons learned throughout many of the trailless episodes I gained from. Then there’s All That, the original cast of course, a children’s sketch comedy-variety show that had me rollin’ every night I watched- even the marathons! Too many classics to name Good Burger, Vital Information, Ask Ashley (“thaaaat’s me!”), Whateverrrr! and let’s not forget the Pea Lady! Everytime they would serve lunch, and I got peas, at my school… I tore them mothers UP! :Deep breathe: so many great shows indeed, Me And My Brother, Are You Afraid Of The Dark? (that shit scared the hell out of me!), Claressa Explains It All… but then the cast started to leave and some shows got canceled, and it became boring and whack-tastic! I mean there were PETITIONS flying at Nickelodeon left and right! Still didn’t bring ’em back… Oh and let’s not forget now, it was some pretty dope cartoons on that Saturday weekend I had to tape SNICK, Rocko’s Modern Life, Doug, Rugrats… 90’s was the SHIT! But do not fret, I’m sure the “greatest invention known to man,” Youtube, has a couple of these floating around.
