Last week, the League was asked to write about items from pop culture that they hated as kids. Of course, the League of Extraordinary Bloggers is comprised of fine people who don’t have a mean streak in them, but I guess there has been a little bit of vile hatred seething in our bones for…
- Fun Town and the Banana Splits
- G.I. Joe
- The good guys
- G.I. Joe (again)
- Boy Bands
- My Little Pony
- Baby Alive
- Hermione Granger
- Hungry Cereal Mascots
- Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers
- Zoobilee Zoo
- A few Top 40 Singles from the 80’s
- Scrappy Doo
- Ball Pits (I know I shouldn’t have favorites, but this one wins the week for me.)
- Those Ghostbusters
- Hate for games
- The Superfriends
- The Karate Kid (gasp!)
- The Wonder Twins
- The Flower Kids
- South Park
- South Park (again)
I find it interesting that when the topic is “hate,” we had a record number of responses from the female persuasion. Noodle on that one. 😉
I would never have thought to see G.I. Joe on this list, let alone twice! I may need to find some new friends.
King Kong’s World Tour
Have you heard? King Kong is on the loose and traveling the world. I want to invite all my fellow League members to sign on as a stopping point for Kong to visit in his travels. Huh? Don’t worry, it’s all explained here.

Could we get a link check on link #5? Link check on link #5. (But to be honest, hating Footloose probably does deserve two links.)
Corrected. Sorry about that!
I can’t believe The League members actually hate South Park and GI Joe more than Scrappy!
This from the person who called out the Karate Kid. 😉
Karate Kid: Dencorub Defeats Pain (I love this one):
It’s a peruvian classic 😀
😀 😀 😀 😀
Who are these “bloggers” who “don’t have mean streak” you speak of?
