I watched “I Love 1992” on VH1 last night and it’s much different than “I Love the 70s” and “I Love the 80s.” A lot of the cultural references from the older decades were about toys and cartoons, whereas the 90s are remembered more for Fabio, Billy Ray Cyrus, and Joey Buttafuoco. Of course, that’s because the Mo Rocha, Michael Ian Black, and Hal Sparks didn’t play with toys or watch cartoons in the 90s. Except for Ren and Stimpy, but who wouldn’t?
Reliving the year made me realized that it hardly qualifies for even being in the 90s. 1992 was more like Nineteen Eighty Twelve.
