10 Movies You Always Have To Explain To Your Friends, Even Though You Remember Them Clear As Day

- Page 1

We all have movies that we watched over and over when we were kids, but for some reason it seems like our friends don't remember them. Why is it that these movies made such a big impact on us when they don't acknowledge that they used to watch them? Are they ashamed of how awesome our childhood favorites were? Because they are nothing short of epic.

These movies are some of the best of best, even though many people claim they can't remember watching them. If you can remember these classics then you are the coolest of your friends.

1. We're Back

Universal Pictures

Sure, Jurassic Park will always be remembered as the top dinosaur movie ever made, but for a lot of us this cartoon classic was way more fun. The characters are fun, the plot is dramatic (but not as scary), and everything turns out okay. I mean, sure, there is still a character who dies, but let's not focus on that right now.

2. Little Nemo: Adventures in Slumberland

Hemdale Film Corporation

If you ever find yourself wanting to yell the word "pajama" over and over, then you probably remember this weird movie. Based on an old comic, Little Nemo takes an adventure that is hard to forget. It's definitely a weird one, so if you are going to go give it a try you should brace yourself.

3. A Troll in Central Park

Warner Bros.

A troll with a green thumb comes to Central Park, and has the ability to make flowers appear and apparently Queen Gnorga is not happy about it. It's a dramatic story and don't worry, they aren't those trolls. No bejeweled bellybuttons here!

4. The Swan Princess

New Line Cinema

It's kind of like a frog prince situation, only that she turns into a swan every day. The moonlight turns her back into a princess, as long as she is on her lake. There's a bit of a mistaken identity situation where the prince confesses he loves her but it's too late and she dies. Don't worry though, only for a minute.

5. Short Circuit

TriStar Pictures

This 80s classic carried forward for years, and being able to watch it as a kid was a real treat. Whether it was the original where we first meet Number 5, or in the sequel where he gets the name Johnny 5 and takes on the big city, all of it is amazing.

Those aren't the only amazing movies that people keep forgetting about...

Sure, It Was A Wonderful Kind Of Day, But Where Would The Cast Of Arthur Be Now?

Elwood city was the place we all wanted to be. It was filled with the best cast of characters ever, and we would have given just about anything to attend Lakewood Elementary School with Arthur and his friends. The Read family was one that we all had a strong connection to. Whether you favored Arthur or D.W., you probably related to both of them on different days. The supporting characters on the show are iconic, and even though the show has been on for over 20 years, it's fun to imagine what would have happened to the characters if

7 Cartoon Moments That You Didn't Realize Were Actually Really Messed Up

Cartoons are pretty much a staple for every kid. We all had at least one that we were completely obsessed with, but more often than not, we watched dozens of different shows. The thing is, these cartoons aren't all as innocent as they may have seemed. There were a lot of moments or episodes that actually were a lot more scandalous than what kids our age should have been watching. I mean, technically we didn't notice or understand, but these cartoons found a way to add some really interesting or mature things into these cartoons, sometimes without even mentioning it.

It's Been Over 20 Years Since 'Space Jam' Came Out, But What Ever Happened To The Monstars?

Since the Looney Tunes started, they have been able to bring together the entire world with their hilarious cartoons. Whether we were watching Bugs give a haircut, Wile E. Coyote chase the Roadrunner, or Sylvester go after Tweety, there were infinite possibilities and all were entertaining. But one story really beat out the rest as the most memorable, and that was Space Jam. You might not think that a silly 90s movie about basketball could top decades of cartoons, but guess what, it was pretty freakin' awesome if you ask me. Warner BrosSpace Jam came out in 1996 and it

20 Movies From The 90s That Still Make You Sob Uncontrollably

Watching movies was the ultimate treat on a weekend. Our parents would let us help them pick out the best movies possible at Blockbuster and we would watch it all together. But as we got older, we didn't want to just rent whatever cartoon had come out that week. We wanted to watch something new and exciting. We wanted our parents to think of us as young adults now. We weren't children, we were capable of understanding complicated emotions. The problem was, we were not ready for the levels of emotion these movies gave us. I remember the first movie
