What a fun list.

I remember watching old episodes of A-Team in syndication. 

I cannot believe Word and AOL has been around that long.

*sigh*...

I'm much older than 30. I remember ALL of these. I loved Mama's Family, and the A-Team.. I remember when CPD and Swatch came out...they were all the rage..as were CB and MLP.

Gosh, I loved the 80s.
