Chances are pretty good that right now you’re scouring the internet looking for something –ANYTHING- even remotely entertaining for your kids while you figure out school closures and quarantines.
Luckily, we’re big 80s and 90s nerds up in here at FFP, and we’ve put together a gnarly list of tween and teen TV shows and movies that rocked our worlds in the 80s and 90s.
From enchanted teenage witches to super transforming robots heroes, we’ve found the most iconic examples of shows and movies that basically every kid needs to see before they grow up.
Remember, though, the 80s and 90s were a different era, so brace yourself for some wincing over insane hair do’s, questionable attitudes, and maybe a curse word or two.

Just remember: these aren’t our educational TV shows of today. And these shows are definitely not for your little kids. “Back To The Future”, for example, has a lot more adult humor and swear words than you probably remember.
But, the best part about sharing these shows with your teen or tween, is that it opens up discussion about a myriad of topics that are perfect to snuggle up on the couch with and discuss with your kids during a pandemic.
