A great jam for a Friday night!
Who remembers this classic song?
We all had them. We watched their shows, movies, and sports games, and listened to their music, if not because of genuine interest, then just to see them in action. Here are my top 10 celebrity crushes of the 1990’s.
10. Amanda Bynes
Television: All That, Figure It Out, The Amanda Show
Movies: Big Fat Liar, What a Girl Wants, She’s the Man
Bynes began her acting career as a cute, little girl on All That. Then, she moved onto the Amanda Show (1999-2002). In 2002, she made her film debut in Big Fat Liar (alongside Frankie Muniz Jr). She apparently is retiring from acting to focus on launching her career as a fashion designer. Anything other than DUI’s I guess right?
9. Alicia Silverstone
Movies: The Crush, Clueless, Batman and Robin
Silverstone did a great job as a sweet yet crazy villain in “The Crush”.
8. Danielle Fishel (Topanga Lawrence)
Television: Boy Meets World
Who wouldn’t want Topanga as a girlfriend?
7. Amy Jo Johnson (Kimberly Hart/Pink Ranger)
Television: Mighty Morphin Power Rangers)
As a kid, watching and playing “Power Rangers” I was usually the blue ranger… and always had a crush on the pink ranger.
6. Elizabeth Hurley
Movies: Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery, Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me
The moment we found out that Vanessa Kensington was actually a robot was a very sad moment.
5. Cameron Diaz
Movies: The Mask, There’s Something About Mary
Diaz was smoking hot in The Mask and also showed her comedic side in the amazing film, “There’s Something about Mary”.
4. Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice)
Movies: Spice World
I am somewhat embarrassed with this pick. My sister and cousins’ obsession with the Spice Girls in the 90’s annoyed me, but for some reason I had a small crush on Posh Spice. Now, she’s just wayyy too skinny and gross.
3. Carmen Electra
Movies: Good Burger
There was a popular debate during the 1990’s: Carmen Electra or Pamela Anderson. I was a Carmen fan.
2. Anna Kournikova
Who cares that she sucked at tennis?
AND NUMBER ONE ISSSSS….
1. Jennifer Lopez (J-Lo)
Movies: Jack, Selena, Anaconda
Only three movies listed because those were some of her bigger one’s from the 90’s. The 2000’s was J-Lo’s decade. Lopez is one of the few on this list who is still just as beautiful as ever.
And that’s all for my top 10 celebrity crushes of the 1990’s. After nearly a year hiatus (I’ve been very busy) 90skidsstuff is back! I will attempt at one post every week, but during busy times, I may only get to one every couple of weeks! Stay tuned!!!!
In 1992, a trio of brothers formed a band that would produce one of the most addicting songs of the 90’s… MMMBop. The group comprised of Isaac (16 when MMMBop came out), Taylor (14) and Zac (11). Although their biggest hit was nearly 15 years ago, the band is still together and making music. Let’s take a look at Hanson “then” and “now”…
- Hanson appeared on Carman’s “Yo! Kidz: The Vidz
- All three began playing their respective instruments, and formed a garage band
- Released album “Middle of Nowhere” on May 6, 1997, selling 10 million copies worldwide
- Hanson was nominated for three Grammy Awards in 1998, including Best New Artist
- Their most successful single, MMMBop was nominated for two Grammys
- On May 6, 2007, the 10th anniversary of Hanson Day, the band re-recorded their first major label album (Middle of Nowhere)
- On June 8, 2010, Hanson released their 8th studio record, “Shout It Out”, debuting at number 30 on the Billboard 200
- Issac was married in September of 2006, and has two sons
- Taylor was married in June of 2002, and has four children
- Zac was married in June of 2006, and has a son and daughter

It’s great to see that Hanson is still together, and doing well! Have a good one everybody!
Alright, 90skidsstuff is ready for a new innovation. In a post from a couple of months ago, I counted down the top 10 Nickelodeon Shows of the 90’s. Now, we will begin a series of naming the top 10 episodes from some of those television shows. First, is “Doug”!
10. Doug Vs. The Klotzoid Zombies
Season 2, airdate: 4/19/1992
This episode provided one of the very few nice moments for Roger Klotz. What starts out as Doug thinking that Roger was stealing all of his friends, turns out to be a surprise party for Doug. This is an episode that also featured the classic Quailman character.
9. Doug & Patti Sittin’ in a Tree
Season 4, airdate: 4/17/1994
This is the episode where Doug and Patti go on their first “date”. One of the major themes of the entire series was the development of Doug and Patti’s relationship. This episode also features one of those classic “how do you know if it’s a date” advice scenes, this time provided by Doug’s best friend, Skeeter.
8. Doug’s Sister Act
Season 4, airdate: 6/5/1994
In this episode, Doug’s sister, Judy has her new boyfriend over for dinner. Judy is embarrassed by her family, especially Doug, and judging by this clip, rightfully so. This is one of the greatest lines in “Doug” history… “there’s a bomb in the lasagna”.
7. Doug Way Out West
Season 4, airdate: 6/12/1994
In this episode, Doug tries to impress Patti (and everyone else) by saying he is a great horse back rider. Unfortunately, he only has experience riding a pony from when he was a little kid.
6. Doug Bags a Neematoad
Season 1, airdate: 8/18/1991
“Doug Bags a Neematoad” was the series premiere, and signaled the start of one of the great Nicktoons. Doug is new to Bluffington, and immediately meets his best friend, Skeeter, his secret crush, Patti, and the school bully, Roger Klotz. Roger makes sure to “introduce” him to the new town.
5. Doug Says Goodbye
Season 1, airdate: 11/3/1991
This episode showed just how awesome Douglas Funnie and Mosquito Valentine’s friendship was. Skeeter thinks that he is going to move away, and will never see Doug again, but it ends up being a misunderstanding. The scene where Doug is chasing Skeeter’s car driving away gives me chills every time.
4. Doug’s Fan Club
Season 4, airdate: 5/8/1994
In this episode, Doug gains an admirer after performing a magic trick. The kid, though eventually gets on Doug’s nerves, and he snaps at him. In the end, they reconcile, and become friends.
3. Doug Throws a Party
Season 4, airdate: 6/12/1994
Doug is throwing his first house party, and when Roger suggests they play “Truth or Dare”, things get interesting.
2. Doug’s Secret Song
Season 2, airdate: 4/12/1992
In this amazing episode, Doug writes and records a love song for Patti. This song however is meant to be kept secret. At the store in the mall, Doug accidentally receives Patti’s video, so he thinks that she got his. The episode ends with Patti and her friends watching Principal Bone’s yodeling video, and Principal Bone watching Doug’s.
1. Doug Is Hamburger Boy
Season 3, airdate: 6/20/1993
At the start of the episode, Doug learns of Mr. Dink’s secret. He used to be the Hamburger Boy. He now wants Doug to take on the job, and Doug reluctantly agrees. He is now trying to keep this secret of his own, and the scenes at the lake/picnic are definitely among the best. The ending line of “why was he carrying that pair of pants” is hilarious. Enjoy the full episode of “Doug Is Hamburger Boy” along with a bonus episode “Doug’s Shock Therapy”!
There’s my take on the best Doug episodes. Did I leave out your favorite one? Leave a comment below! Future top 10 episode posts will include: Rugrats, Hey Arnold, and Are You Afraid of the Dark, among others!
