Back when phones were limited to landlines, there was an absolute influx of 1-900 numbers being advertised to people of all ages! These were numbers that for the low price of nearly a dollar a minute (at LEAST) you could call for all sorts of weird things. These 10 were especially strange.
You could call MC Hammer by dialing 1-900-909-MCMC

Nintendo had a line you could call for help with a game you were stuck on
Sierra had the same for their super complicated adventure games. They would even mail you tips!
It only gets weirder from here...

Anyone remember "The Corey Hotline" from The Simpsons? Turns out it was a real thing, with Corey Haim and Corey Feldman.
Why not call the He-Man hotline and have them tell you how to buy their toys!
Or maybe try calling FREDDY FREAKING KRUEGER?!

Even for those of us that remember the 90s, it is hard to recall what we did before the days of mobile devices and constant access to the internet.
