I was out on a drive the other day, and came across a Circle K convenience store. I didn't know those still existed! It reminded me of a great 1989 comedy about two high-school slackers who have to travel through time to pass their history class. In what movie does one character make the immortal observation that "Strange things are afoot at the Circle K"?
The Final Countdown
Out of Time
Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home
Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure
Last night I cooked myself a stir fry with plenty of portobelloes. As a child of the '80s, I was inevitably reminded of the lovely Princess Toadstool and her Mushroom Kingdom. In a 1985 video game, a pair of mustachioed plumbers must save the Princess from the clutches of an evil turtle. For what home gaming system was this title released?
This weekend, I rented a cowboy movie. I thought it would be 1880s all the way, but instead I found myself thinking of 1980s fashion. For a while there, lots of trendy women were wearing pants with an elastic strap to fit around each foot. What were these slacks called?
The last time I visited an art museum, I couldn't stop thinking about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. This pizza-loving, crime-fighting foursome was first introduced in a 1984 comic book, and was soon starring in a children's cartoon that launched in 1987. Which turtle leads the team?
In times of economic crisis, it's easy to be reminded of the '80s anthem "Livin' on a Prayer." "Tommy used to work on the docks," the first verse tells us. "Union's been on strike. He's down on his luck. It's tough -- so tough." Okay, I've got to get this on iTunes. Which band first recorded this 1986 hit?
When the power comes back after an outage in a snowstorm, I can't help myself: I have to shout "I have the power!" This catchphrase comes from a children's cartoon that originally ran from 1983 to 1985. In it, a mild-mannered prince on another planet can transform himself into a superhero with the aid of a magic sword. What's his name when he's at his most unstoppable?
There's a certain type of sweater that always reminds me of a great 1980s sitcom -- now, what was it called? Cliff and Clair were a doctor and a lawyer with five kids, a lot of heart, and a lot of wit. Cliff is competitive; Clair is composed; the kids (and their friends) are a handful. Help me figure out which show I'm remembering!
The Cosby Show
A Different World
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
Hospital scrubs and clean-room bunny suits always remind me of the 1985 movie "Back to the Future," whose heroes don special protective gear to handle plutonium near the beginning of the movie. What clean-cut Canadian movie star played the film's main time traveler, Marty McFly?
Michael J. Fox
Every Halloween, I start humming under my breath. I can't stop thinking about the 1982 album that made the King of Pop. Its compelling beats, stellar vocals and fascinating music videos have gained it wide recognition as one of the best albums of all time. "No one's gonna save you from the beast about to strike --" unless, perhaps, you can name this album that was Number One in the U.S. Billboard 200 for a full 37 weeks.
Off the Wall
When there's snow on the ground and sledders on the hills, I think of a landmark comic strip that launched in 1985. Written and drawn by Bill Watterson, the strip gave us an extraordinarily bright and mischievous six-year-old boy whose constant companion is his stuffed tiger. What's the title?
Calvin and Hobbes
Arlo and Janis
Mutt and Jeff
Dennis the Menace
