  1. I am a child of the 80s yet there are several things here I don't quite recall (...Tootie and the skates? Didn't watch much Good Times and intentionally skipped Poltergeist. And I never believed that Kevin Bacon was, ahem, "hot" in any movie...)

    But I continue to maintain that "by the power of Greyskull, I HAVE the power!"
