Anonymous said: I need your supreme knowledge of all things 90's to help figure out the name of a movie from my childhood. It might be set in Ireland, it features fairies and/or leprechauns, and I'm pretty sure there is a car accident at one point. I think the movie focuses on a family that moves into a new home while they deal with the mischief caused by the magical creature. It wasn't a Disney movie. Thank you!!!

Either Leapin Leprechauns (1995) or the sequel Spellbreaker: Secret of the Leprechaun’s (1996). They’re both fairy movies set in Ireland; only the first one has a car crash but the second one stars Gregory Smith aka Sport from Harriet the Spy so it’s categorically better.

Did my 60+ year old Database Systems teacher embed this in the database as a joke or am I hallucinating Nickelodeon references into mysql…

I’m pretty sure I’m gonna accidentally kill myself practicing herbalism.

Instead of doing homework I wanna make a comic about not doing homework but that’s too ironically counterproductive so instead I’m just procrastinating both of those things by watching Supernatural.

I’m about to drop out of school and retire to a life of running a 90’s blog with lowkey gender role analysis undertones.

What are your favorite movies from childhood that the nostalgia gods haven’t smiled upon (i.e. that no one seems to remember or talk about anymore)?

My #1 is probably ‘House Arrest’ which I’ve never seen mentioned ever on the internet even though it’s in my top 5 most viewed movies of all time (which for me could put views in the low hundreds…)

Taking a fifteen minute procrastination break from homework to flex my PhD in kids movies and analyze your replies—peter pan syndrome in action…

Smart House

  • Everybody remembers and talks about Smart House

Brink

  • Literally everybody remembers and talks about Brink
  • image

Stepsister From Planet Weird

  • Truly underrepresented in the nostalgia realm, though I don’t know if Disney Channel Original Movies count because even if no one talks about them there’s like an 85% chance any given peer has seen the one you’re thinking of.

Ghostwriter

  • Actually since every episode of Ghostwriter is on youtube there’s a community of obsessive re-watchers (including my sister) who chill in the comments waxing intellectual about ~what it all meant~ This show is categorically (according to me) the most ethnically diverse kid show ever, followed closely by The Puzzle Place. Six characters and only one of them is white? Where they do that at?

Trading Mom

  • You’re right!!! First of all it has the little brother from Freaky Friday in it, the oldest brother from The Torkelsons in it, and Anna Chlumsky from My Girl. We had to sneak and watch it though because a movie about using a spell to get rid of your mother than shopping for a new one at the “mommy market” did not fly with my actual mother. Pro-witchcraft and anti-moms? Yeah I can see why this did not live on in syndication.

Under Wraps

  • True, people don’t talk about this much, but it’s the first Disney Channel Original Movie (DCOM™) so it will never really be forgotten, and it’s no Halloweentown but I bet Disney has the tape queued up to start playing in two weeks.

Flash

  • Ummmm let it die. I literally hate this movie yet I’ve seen it so many times. Can we just watch ‘Horse Sense’ instead and move on?

Andre

  • Honestly the only reason I’m so familiar with Andre is because there’s a preview for it on the ‘Harriet the Spy’ VHS so I feel like I’ve seen it 100 times. I’ve probably only seen it once. The child-bonds-with-animals genre was poppin off in the 90s, like, if you remember any one of those movies that’s more than enough. Personally I’d opt for ‘Fly Away Home’.

The Other Me

Mystery Men

  • Okay no one ever actually watched or cared about this movie BUT since Smash Mouth’s ‘All Star’ is from the soundtrack you can imagine that anytime someone plays this song it’s a little nod to Mystery Men. (If you ever wondered why Kel Mitchell’s career didn’t take off after Kenan & Kel this movie is why.)

The Paper Brigade

  • Starring the same kid from House Arrest, another underrated classic that should be loved if only because dude was trying to get tickets to “the Screaming Banshees concert” to impress a girl. That’s love.

Don’t Look Under the Bed

  • I’ll be real I was creeped out by this movie but I’ve already pledged to watch it this Halloween season. I’m having a serious DCOM Halloween movie marathon soon, holler@me if you wanna get in on it.

Don’t Tell Mom the Babysitter’s Dead

  • Kid stuff aside this is a legitimately classic movie. I promise you it’s beloved by many; you’re hanging with the wrong crowd if you don’t know anyone who’s seen it.

Camp Nowhere

  • TRUE AND UNACCEPTABLE. I’m calling out everybody who has love for Heavyweights but doesn’t remember Camp Nowhere. You need to distribute your summer camp movie love evenly!

It Takes Two

  • Ain’t ya never gonna wanna don’t ya hafta go to the bathroom? I don’t know if I’d go so far as to say it’s better than The Parent Trap but it definitely deserves to be quoted more often. I do what I can. And it does have The Boy With the Purple Socks from Harriet the Spy in it so if we’re grading on that scale…

Little Giants

  • This is my favorite kids movie I couldn’t agree more!!! I’ve been on the brink of realizing that even though as a kid I thought it was tearing down gender roles it may actually have been reinforcing them in a really roundabout way at the end of the movie. I’m afraid to watch it critically at this point I just want to live in oblivion.

Model Behavior

  • Everyone please stop what you’re doing and watch this movie if you’ve never seen it. It has Justin Timberlake as a male model at the height of Nsync fame; what’s not to talk about? It’s so bad that it’s great. And Sean Cameron from Degrassi is in it, like…

Man of the House

  • This is also on my most viewed movies of all time list and no one talks about it at all but I’m gonna officially say that’s for the best since it’s literally about a bunch of white men and their sons bastardizing Native American culture, wearing headdresses and beaded vests and war paint calling themselves the “Indian Guides” as an after school club. Not a good look. I’ve been looking over my shoulder waiting for someone to call this movie out for like 10 years. I love a good Jonathan Taylor Thomas movie but don’t watch this one. Forget it ever happened.

gills said: do you have any good links to youtubes with full episodes of awesome old shows? if so please share!!

The only shows I watch on youtube lately are Lizzie McGuire and english dubbed Sailor Moon… But since I know you’re really asking so you can watch shows via the ‘Youtube’ channel on your Roku, I have a better answer.

Nick Reboot has a Roku channel that you can add for free here.

And to anyone who’s been living under a rock for the past couple of years, Nick Reboot is a 24/7 live stream of 90’s & early 00’s Nickelodeon shows, including classic 90’s commercials. It’s, like, the most significant source of joy in my life. If you’re not well versed in pre-Spongebob Nickelodeon please go get yourself an education.

I’ll never forget the outfit the guy sitting next to me in my Ruby on Rails class had on today
