Weird Al Hosts ALTV

At Pop Rewind, we pride ourselves in saving great nostalgia from being totally lost to time.  If ever we had a post that fits that bill, this is it.  We’re taking a look back at some obscure television. Weird Al is known for his funny records, but he essentially has a second career in television.  Heck, even his movie was...

Retro Recipe: Awful Waffle

Who didn’t want to spend a summer with Donkey Lips at Camp Anawana?  Salute Your Shorts was a TV show that served as a voice for awkward kids everywhere.  The show did a perfect job depicting what happens when a hodgepodge of kids are stuck at camp, which I realize as an adult is not that different from work. If...

Gremlins and ALF… The Ride???

I’m sorry.  Truly, I am.  I’m sorry that for eight years, there was a running Gremlins ride hosted by ALF and I never told you about it. A Gremlins ride showed up at Warner Bros. theme parks in both Australia and Germany.  The German version, however, received an upgrade in the form of one Gordon Shumway. Photo by: ALF...

90s Moments You Forgot: Do The Bartman!

All these years later, with even the hardcore fans feeling like the show has way beyond run its course, it’s hard to imagine the original hype surrounding The Simpsons. You would have thought the Sprinfield family was leading the second British Invasion. Simpsons merchandise was everywhere, video games were being cranked out, and they even had a record. Wait, a...

Besta Polka: A Compilation That’s Not Lying

Remember when all those “Now! That’s What I Call Music” CDs started taking off the in 90s?  Personally, I never had much interest in the latest Spice Girls hits so I’ve never owned one of those collections.  In fact, there was only one 90s compilation I really desired: Besta Polka. Looking back, it’s easy to see why I was the...

Sonic the Hedgehog: The Movie: Based on the Game: Well, Sort Of

It was one of those videos I kept spotting in the discount bin at K-Mart.  Every time I stopped by the electronics section, there would be four or five copies marked down, ready for someone to give a loving home to these tapes.  At some point, the price dropped a dollar and I decided to take a risk on a...

The Crypt Keeper Can Rap Around You Like a Mummy

No, I wouldn’t have believed it, either, but when I was on a big Tales from the Crypt binge watch fest last year, I came across a song that should’ve been piling up discount in cassingle bins across shopping malls everywhere… The “Crypt Jam”. Yeah, Crypt Keeper in the house… what?

Delta Dreamflight: A Long Ago Attraction

It really seems like a long ago dream at this point, but it’s true that Delta once sponsored an attraction at Disney World.  Delta Dreamflight was an Omnimover style attraction, similar to the ride mechanics of the classic Haunted Mansion.  Unlike the popular ghost ride, however, Dreamflight was no nightmare. The attraction’s roots were actually planted on a previous ride...

The Real Garfield Busters

My Gameboy selection was always pretty limited.  I got the handheld brick in the early 90s and even today still only have five games for it.  Some time around 2000, one of those overpriced game stores in the mall *cough-all-of-them-cough* was clearing out some old Gameboy titles.  To that point, I thought I had played every Ghostbusters game that had...
