The commercials are the best part.

Time to go in the wayback machine: Someone unearthed six hours of cartoons and TV shows from the early ‘90s.

Yesterday, YouTuber Spindash54 posted four hours worth of VHS tape from September 1990, including clips of Wheel of Fortune during a dark time when Pat Sajak was not the host, Double Dare in all its food-wasting glory, Noozles, and other Nickelodeon-heavy shows.

Spindash54 also posted two hours worth of TV from October 1993, complete with glorious VHS static lines and a Ren & Stimpy intro. It includes episodes of Danger Mouse and Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog.

This is pretty cool for the nostalgia factor, but the best part of these clips might be the commercials. Remember the ad for Street Hot court shoes? Paint ‘N Dazzle Barbie? Baby Checkup? That one commercial where Steve Urkel gives home repair tips?

Goodbye, free time.
