Stock, Aitken and Waterman – The 80s Albums

I decided to collect every Stock, Aitken and Waterman album from the 80s. Why? Because, for me, SAW produced what I consider to be the best music in the 80s. I wasn’t into the moody synth scene of the early 80s, and although I had a Madness, a Shakin Stevens and an Adam And The […]

Street Hawk

Jesse Mach was a motorcycle cop. I say was, because he had a bit of a run-in with some naughty men which resulted in his knee being busted up and his friend Marty being killed. He was destined to never ride a motorcycle again, but to be shunted into the Public Relations office where he […]

Ashens and the Polybius Heist

Remember the 80s? Of course you do! That’s why you’re here, at an 80s site! And do you remember 80s arcade machines? (That’s a rhetorical question – there is no need to keep answering out loud from now on.) If your favourite film genre is “80s retro gaming heists”, then you will certainly be adding […]

Teddy Ruxpin

Teddy Ruxpin was an animatronic teddy bear that would come to life and read you stories. Don’t get me wrong, he was no Chucky from Childs Play, no no no, he was a cute bear whose calming voice was incredibly entertaining and in no way disturbing. You inserted specific Teddy Ruxpin story cassettes into the […]

Micro But Many – A new book on Micro Machines

If you’re here, I’m guessing you know about the 80s! And I’m guessing you know about, or are at least aware of, Micro Machines. As a quick explanation for people who are just exploring the internet, have found this and would like a brief overview, Micro Machines were miniature vehicles sold in sets of 5 […]

Purple People Eater

This was a game in which you had to remove little plastic people from the mouth of a gelatinous purple people eater. It worked in much the same way as Operation, in that you used metal pliers to extract people from the monsters metal-lined mouth. In a way this is most 80s boys dream, getting […]

Stoppit And Tidyup

Up until the age of 3, I thought my name was “don’t touch”. Bearing that in mind, here is a program with some characters with serious problems. Welcome to the land of “Do as your told”. Stoppit is a mischievous little character that lives in a dump. Tidyup is his friend that lives just across […]
