Funny Clothes

43. Genera Hypercolor Shirts

A shirt that changes color with changes in body heat. While this would seem a good reason for the overweight and overly-sweaty to avoid wearing them, these were precisely the only individuals who did so at my high school. See also 80's.

Funny TV Shows

44. Romper Room

Each program would open with a greeting from the hostess and the Pledge of Allegiance. Then the hostess and her group of children would embark on an hour (or half hour) of games, exercises, songs and moral lessons, which were regularly accompanied by background music.

At the end of each broadcast, the hostess would look through a "magic mirror" (actually a face-sized open hoop with a handle) and name the children she saw in "televisionland", then recite the rhyme, "Romper, bomper, stomper boo. Tell me, tell me, tell me, do. Magic mirror, tell me today. Have all my friends had fun at play?" She would then lead into, "I can see Scotty and Kimberly and Julie and Jimmy and Kelly and all of you boys and girls out there!" Did she ever see you? See also 80's, Children, Television.

Funny TV Shows

47. 20 Minute Workout

This show burst onto the scene in the early 80's, usually with 2 to 3 girls performing an aerobic excerise routine. My brother would watch the show...not because he was "following" the routine.. but because he thought the girls were cute.
They matched their bodysuits, leggings...
Bess Motta the lead instructor was awesome! See also 80's, Aerobics, Exercise.
