1990’s Pop Culture

The 1990s was a time of great tv and movies, questionable top fashion choices and cutting-edge technology, this decade was one to remember. Need an update? Ashley Aulbach – 360Wichita. September 5, 2016 

You Watched…

Beginning in 1993, Rocko’s Modern Life follows an Australian Wallaby as he transitions to American Life. Rocko’s Modern Life, 1993

One of the most memorable films of the decade, Pulp Fiction was released in 1994, a whopping 22 years ago!

Disney hit us all in the feels with its 1994 release of the Lion King. This is often regarded as one of Disney’s best films, and features a score by Elton John.

We all know that Ross, Rachel, Monica, Chandler, Joey and Phoebe are friends, and from 1994-2004, we felt like they were our friends, too. After a 10 year run, audiences were still sad to see Friends go.

The film that took us to infinity and beyond, Disney’s Toy Story was released in 1995. 20 years later, in 2015, the 2018 release of Toy Story 4 was confirmed.

We’ll never let go of this film, pun intended. The 1997 classic, Titanic, astounded audiences with its cinematography.

You Bought…

These clunky VHS Tapes saw us through the majority of the 90’s. It wasn’t until 1997 that the DVD was released, and even then, it took time for them to catch on.

The precursor to the mp3 player and the successor of the tape player, the Discman was great–in theory. It was a portable CD player, allowing access to your favorite music while you were on the go. But if you jumped, had too much pep in your step or walked too fast, the CD skipped. It had some definite bugs.

Take a look at the original flash drive. If you’ve ever wondered where the image on your smartphone’s save button came from, look no further. This was pretty high-tech when it came out, but the best name we could give it was “floppy disk.”

This is the iMac Color.

Windows 95, this setup is almost comical, but this bulky monitor, tower and keyboard were among the best available back in the day.

You Wore…

Chokers were a big deal in the 90’s. Like, a really big deal. And these curly plastic ones were everywhere.

If you didn’t wear butterfly barrettes in your hair, did you really experience the ’90s? Every girl had her head full of it.

A crucial element of the grunge look, flannel shirts were often worn over band tees.

And: Doc Martens; The Jeans; Neon Colors

You Played…

The Tamagotchi Pets egg-shaped keychain that entertained everyone for about 45 minutes before it died.

Nintendo 64 was where it was at. Released in 1996, this puppy had outstanding graphics for its day and offered and impressive variety of games.
