Flash Back to the Sixties with Cat and Girl

    There was a point in the mid-90s – somewhere between the bellbottom comeback, Shiny Happy People and the marketing onslaught of Fruitopia – when it seemed that every television show had a special episode flashing back to the 1960s. Usually Woodstock was involved.

    It was baby boomers marketing their teen years to their children and it was at best misdirected but often just infuriating. Top-down culture at its most top-down, at least from the bottom where I was sitting.

    Have you been raiding my parents’ basement for old photos? I’m pretty sure that’s them in the center panel.

    The Life Goes On 60s flashback was the best one, I think. It didn’t involve Woodstock and instead involved the Vietnam war and hippies getting married before the guy was sent to war.

    Also in the 1990s days every cartoon has a “character obsessed with germs” episode. I’d say that still happens now, but they seem to be making live action shows for 9 year olds instead of cartoons.
