Introduced by The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the cartoon versions themselves who were on the cuff of greatness as kids cartoon characters.
Bros meanwhile wondered when would they be famous. It lasted for a brief moment. The female audience for boy bands can be so fickle.
Over in the Maine Road ground. Man City fans went bananas. Inflatable fruit were all the rage. Nowadays the crowd at the Etihad stadium get elated by winning actual trophies. Still they were a better gimmick than stick on Garfield's that appeared in some cars.
The House music scene that kicked off in the mid 1980s morphed into Acid House. If you thought it was about drugs, you were probably right. Huge raves with smiley tablets, no wonder you needed to keep drinking water.
Channel 4 decided that Sumo wrestling could be a cult television hit. There was more to it than two fat blokes bouncing off each other. Apparently there were all these ancient rituals such as eating vast quantities of hamburgers. The audience stayed away, they preferred Giant Haystacks taking on Big Daddy.
When the BBC launched a morning schedule that did not consist of schools programs. ITV responded with This Morning from Albert Dock in Liverpool. Richard & Judy became household name, partly because Richard Madeley was accused of shoplifting at his local Tesco's. He was found not guilty. His fate is still uncertain for crimes against television.
There was no mention of doping scandals in the Seoul Olympics of 1988. Good news for Ben Johnson.
