There are certain things only a kid who grew up in the ’90s will understand. The raw masculinity of Pierce Brosnan, the thrill of winding up a cassette tape with a pencil or even the walkman, we’ve grown up with all of it and it has created such an impact in our lives. Every time we listen to a song we did when we were growing up, it immediately takes us back to our childhood. On that note, we’re going to take you down memory lane today. This list of TV shows will serve as your daily dose of nostalgia. Here they are:
1. Full House (1987)
Fun Fact: Mary-Kate Olsen is left-handed and Ashley Olsen is right-handed. That is why throughout the show, Michelle Tanner uses both of her hands to write and eat.
2. Bewitched (1964)
Fun Fact: Endora did, in fact, have a last name. In the fourth episode, when Darrin Stephens asks what it is, Endora replies, ‘You’d never be able to pronounce it.’
3. I Dream Of Jeannie (1965)
Fun Fact: While filming season 1, Barbara Eden was pregnant. Her pregnancy was hidden by filming her in close-up or with a veil covering her front side.
4. Diff’rent Strokes (1978)
Fun Fact: Arnold Jackson‘s question ‘Watchoo talkin’ ’bout, Willis?‘ was ranked #17 in TV Guide‘s list of TV’s 20 Top Catchphrases. It was never intended as a catch phrase.

Fun Fact: Candace Cameron Bure, Taylor Neff and Heather O’Rourke all auditioned for the role of Vicki.

9. Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air (1990)

10. The Wonder Years (1988)
Fun Facts: In the last episode of the show, the voice of the narrator’s kid at the end is Daniel Stern‘s son Henry Stern– the producers wanted them to end the show talking to each other.
