9 Kids Movies from the '90s That You Forgot You Loved
We're talking forgotten gems like 'Fern Gully' and 'Little Giants'.
Growing up in the '90s meant you for sure asked for a Tamagotchi for Christmas one year, you had a sick pogs and slammers collection, you owned overalls before they because "fashionable" again recently, and you watched the cinematic masterpieces of our youth over and over again.
Even though you probably haven't thought of Little Giants, Fern Gully, and Camp Nowhere in forever, it was these movies that helped shape our futures (or something like that). Take a trip down '90s movie memory lane and we guarantee you'll want to re-watch some of these flicks again soon:
Things we vividly remember from this movie: fairies, the terribleness of logging, and the incredibly creepy toxic sludge bad guy, Hexxus. Nightmares for days.
The Little Giants
Didn't you want to play football after watching this band of misfits rally together? Shawna, the only girl on the team, was particularly awesome.
Harriet the Spy
You probably read the book before you saw the movie, which featured a young and cute Michelle Trachtenberg.
A Goofy Movie
Remember Goofy was a single father with a son named Max in the Goof Troop TV show and this movie?
The Indian in the Cupboard
You probably read the book in fourth grade and, if you were lucky, then got to watch the movie in class. SCORE.
Man of the House
This movie came at the height of JTT hotness (if you were 12 at the time) and if you remember anything about the movie, it's that he rollerbladed through the house with his yellow Walkman like a true badass.
Now and Then
This was the best sleepover movie of the '90s. The story of Teeny, Chrissy, and friends was perfect to watch with your gal pals while trying to be super cool and stay up until midnight. I was the Roberta of my group, for sure — how about you?
Fun Fact: Jessica Alba was in this movie. Remember it? Camp Nowhere gave kids everywhere who hated summer camp and authority a glimmer of hope. It's about Mud and his pals banding together to create a summer camp with no rules or parents and they sorta pull it off — for a while.
Thora Birch starred in this fun flick, which was about her chance friendship with a pick-pocketing monkey she names Dodger, then proceeds to teach morals.
