- were An American Tail and Howard the Duck, both of which I liked and still like. I must have watched others but these are the two I remember. Both came out in 1986. My daughter was born in 1985. The timing was fortuitous.

My toddler daughter was fascinated by Howard. I wonder if the film makers realized their best market for the film was toddlers and their parents.

I was 10 when Howard came out. I liked it and saw it many times, we had it on VHS. Maybe I was just fascinated by seeing duck boobs.

The Goonies and The Monster Squad. My wife is a Goonies fan too so we've seen that many times. Now I make the family watch Monster Squad every Halloween. Of course I loved Cloak & Dagger also.

Probably The Goonies or E.T. E.T. was a phenomenon. My mom took my younger brother and me to see it. Goonies was a cable movie for me, but one that I watched every day for one summer. Those movies had more of a hook for me. While seeing a movie in the theater was a treat, the cable movies that were watched daily for weeks were the ones that have the most lasting impression.

For my kids, it's definitely Toy Story. Though my daughter wasn't born until 2004, Toy Story(1995) was easily the best of the VHS tapes we bought for her. She loved it, my son loved it, and I loved it. It was a movie I could watch every day, much more easily than those Wiggles videos.

Whispering Hands




Aladdin or the 1990 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (which really wasn't much of a kid's movie).

Home Alone. Other favorites include Home Alone 2, Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, Homeward Bound, Jumanji, and I will have to second Whispering Hands and say Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

And the soundtrack is still a part of my frequent playlist.

I agree this is one of the few ones that I'd definitely sit down and watch today and still love every minute of it.

I loved the Goonies when I was a kid so there is still some nostalgia, but it's kind of a silly movie.
