The Lion King was one of the biggest Disney movies ever made. The story seemed to captivate audiences both young and old, and you know what else? It made an insane amount of money.
Disney had always done a good job of marketing their products, but it seemed that when The Lion King came out and they finally had a property that would appeal to both boys and girls they were able to go completely warthog-wild with their merchandise. How many of these things do you remember owning?
There were a bunch of different options, but it seemed like we all had at least one Lion King photo album
You had to have a funky hat!
Because what else would match this shirt?
Or this super cool jacket
You needed a thermos to bring your lunch to school
And obviously a lunchbox
And we would keep it in our backpacks
We all had a special cup to drink out of at home, preferably one with moving pieces and glitter
Or at the very least one of these plastic cups that could be found in literally every home
And of course you would need a special plate to match
There were also these big heavy ceramic mugs that were honestly hard to drink out of, but it didn't stop us from wanting them!
You might think that growing up in the spotlight would be difficult, but you would hope that having money at a young age would help set you up for a successful future. As we've learned over the years, that is not always the case. As it turns out, being pushed into the spotlight and having people judge you while you go through puberty is apparently not all that good for you. Who would have guessed? Can you sense the sarcasm? Going through this intense scrutiny at such a young age isn't really that great, and not everyone handles it as
We knew it was a possibility that Mad About You would come back, and now it's looking as though it's a lot more likely as both former stars have signed on for a revival. In the last year alone, we've seen two other huge 90s hits come back and exceed expectations. Will & Grace came back to NBC after a political commercial kind of took over everyone's minds and we realized we wanted more. And of course there is Roseanne as well, which has been killing it in the ratings every episode. It's honestly only a matter of time before all
Our parents, our grandparents, and sometimes even our teachers would have to tell us things to make us do what was best for us. But sometimes, they seemed to have told us a bunch of lies that were just nothing more than downright false. Sure, it's understandable when they need to make sure we eat our veggies or go to bed early enough so we aren't cranky the next day, but honestly, some of the things our parents said were just completely false for no reason. I don't know why they have to lie to us. I mean, I guess
Elementary school, middle school (or junior high depending on where in the country you are), and high school are probably the scariest years of your life. Yes, there is all this propaganda that claims that they are "the best years of your life," but if that's true, then oh boy... There were so many rules and regulations, all of which were claiming to be in place for our own good, but a lot of the time it felt as though they were just completely ridiculous. Do you ever wonder if it was just a crazy power trip? Were they just
