Movies From My Childhood

Growing up I wasn't allowed to watch PG-13 movies until I was 13. The same went for R-rated movies. Some might call that strict but I say it makes sense; there's a reason why the movies are rated the way they are. Just because little Timmy really likes Batman doesn't mean you should haul him to the theater past his bed time to watch the Dark Knight...yet people do!

You know what movies I watched when I was a kid? The Brave Little Toaster, The Land Before Time (1-infinity), All Dogs Go To those were movies! Although...The Brave Little Toaster scarred me for life. FOR LIFE! I know what you're thinking: it wasn't that traumatizing; but it was. Every single time I vacuum I have a flashback to that scene in the movie where Kirby the vacuum chokes on his cord and almost dies. Because of that scene I take twice as long vacuuming because I have to hold up the cord because I'm afraid the poor vacuum cleaner will choke to death. I realize it's an inanimate object but I've been brainwashed by the Brave Little Toaster. (Don't even get me started on the nightmares I had where Kirby accidentally sucked up Blankie (or in my case Wooby) and they couldn't get Blankie out in time; he died).

Now, the Land Before Time was a pretty darn good movie(s) and I'm not just saying that because I get the whole "oh my gawwwd are you Lil' Foot?" thing No ladies and gentleman I am not...we just share an uncanny resemblance. Like I said the movies were good but eh some of the characters irked me. What was up with Sarah? She was a bitch and a half and they just took it. Ugh. They should have just said: "You know what Sarah? You're a jerk and a Negative Nancy. We don't dig what you're throwing down. Go get lost in a tar pit." But alas they never told her that and apparently her parents didn't believe in discipline so the audience had to suffer through countless movies with her in it. Grr.

Another movie that was as much a part of my childhood as frozen peas and Scooby-Doo was the movie All Dogs Go to Heaven. That movie scared the crap out of me! I mean it gave me nightmares and it still haunts me to this day. I saw it once and I will never watch it again. Whose bright idea was it to make a movie about dead dogs that could wind up in Hell? I mean that movie was just plain disturbing. I was just a kid! I didn't want to think about the fact that if my Golden Retriever ate one too many pans of brownies too many he'd wind up in doggie Hell surrounded by meanie pants. Yikes!

Oy but that's all for now folks!

    I'm glad you like it. I can't remember all the details of ADG2H but I think the main dog dies and there are mobsters after him and he has to get a pocket watch out of a sewer with a crocodile in it.

  3. i loved land before time...and oliver and company...and all of the 90's disney movies....Aladdin was my all time fav!

  4. I adored Oliver and Company...especially the part where the girl gave him a big bowl full of chocolate and non-dog food. I was so happy for the dog. OOO and I loved the poodle's big throne/bed!
