What are some VHS tapes that you remember watching when you were younger. Could be home videos, movies, tv shows, cartoons, anime, shit you found in a dumpster, etc.

Share some /nos/talgic VHS memories!


oh man i had a ton.

A memory sticks out in particular:

I used to have to spend the night at my Dad's a couple of times a week. One day he had to be somewhere by 5am, so he dropped me off at my mom's at about 4.

No one in my house was awake. I made frozen pancakes and put the brave little toaster on vhs in.

I've always remembered this, I don't think I had ever been awake that early until that day. Super comfy


Tom & Jerry and looney tunes is what I remember the most

I had a ton and kept them. Now I kinda collect them.
Some I remember watching a lot were the 80s TMNT tapes as well as Power Rangers (mostly Mighty Morphin). I also watched movies like Jumanji about 1000 times.

My dad used to have a lot of VHS tapes, almost all were NatGeo documentaries, also I used to watch some old pixar movies and stuff. They were good times.

Sorry bad english btw.
Pic no related.


Used to have a few Charlie Brown VHSs that I watched frequently as a kid (the ones about WWII, Thanksgiving, Graham Bell, Railroads). I'm not even american but growing up watching those made (makes?) me feel I was.


wish* although that's an interesting slip

I had a bunch of old Tom and Jerry tapes I got from my aunt that I would watch. My dad had VHS tapes from an old anime called Lupin III that I would constantly watch. Those were good tones.

I wish current TV wasn't shit.




happy 500

i got drunk and watched some old winnie the pooh tapes on vhs last weekend. i even used my old race car rewinder


Luckily there's enough good old TV to keep you entertained as long as you live.


i always thought a cool idea for Hell would be forcing you to watch every tv show ever made

only when finished could you leave


>cool idea for hell
>just watch tv bro lol

That vision of hell is more enjoyable than most people's ordinary lives. Unless Satan was cucked recently I don't see it happening.


Recordings of Star Wars episodes 4-6 off of television, with Carrie Fisher talking about her experiences acting in each movie, in between some of the scenes.


We had a lot of Disney films on VHS
I also remember I bought a couple of Digimon tapes from a fair, had this gem of a scene in it.

My grandma had the first 25 or so episodes of Sailor Moon recorded on VHS tapes. Used to watch them all the time, though the later episodes were a bit fuzzy, the last few being unwatchable.

used to watch this everyday. found it on YouTube recently. it still has such a weird vibe.

I just remembered watching this… Mighty mouse on the VHS


We had Rubbadubbers on VHS. My mother had one of those cars with VHS players, and that's one of the things we watched.
That's about all I remember.


My mom used to sit for ages watching MTV and recording music videos on VHS tapes if I had a birthday party coming up. I guess the benefit was there were no ads/bumpers and you could cut out the songs you don't enjoy. Plus music videos are a lot more fun than a CD. I bet there are still some tapes in the attic full of 90s MTV nostalgia.

It was also a big deal in my country to have your photo shown on this national children's television show. Every morning they'd show the photos of a select few kids and two puppets would wish them a happy birthday. I remember my mom sent my photo in every year and finally (I think I was around 9 or 10) they used my photo. I had such a great morning asking all my friends before class if they saw me on tv lol.

I remember watching Tabaluga when I was a child.

This VHS.
It had it all:
Popeye, Mighty Mouse, Woody Woodpecker, Felix the Cat, a couple Walt Disney Silly Symphonies, Betty Boop, Casper the Ghost….man, I'm getting hit with the nostalgia pretty hard…

Kirby is always related.

That looks really awesome. I almost want to watch it and try to think how cool it would be through the eyes of kid-me.


This lovely video about water created by Smithsonian. The intro is true 90s goodness!

Only my grandparents had a VHS player when I was growing up. I remember really looking forward to staying over with them, because it meant watching videos or telly until bedtime. My favourite was probably this one, but I also remember liking the Monsieur Hulot movies and steam railroad documentaries. Not really kids media, but it definitely made a lasting impression on me.

My grandpa died a day after his retirement started when i was like 14, and my grandma a couple years later after a long illness. I helped clear their space out, and held on to the casettes for a while, but i think theyre gone now.

me too, but i remember nothing from the show except the villians, the snowman and his penguin.



yes, i could hear the intro i my mind before i even played it. the rolling black metal TV cart, the easy filler worksheet you'd do along with the video in class. sighhhh.


I've been going through and digitizing my old home movies here. I've got six of them done so far.
So far it's been stuff from '91 - '96. But I have a good bit more in between those years as well to do. Then the last home video that ever was filmed was one from 2000 when I was 10. I'm certainly upset about one tape so far I've come across that has a rattling inside of it. But the tape reel doesn't seem to be damaged. It's a tape of me on Halloween in '94. I've been looking into transferring the film reel into another video cassette tape. Does anyone here have any experience with that or any tips for me? I'd personally like to find a specialist to help me. I feel as if I'd be too clumsy and mess things up to the point where I'll lose the footage.



>Arthur tapes

>those orange Nick tapes
>The LOTR Animated movie on vhs
>Rescuers (the movie with the mice) on vhs

I had an enormous collection. I still have some of them in storage.


I’m not sure why, but I would constantly watch this. I’m happy it’s on YouTube.
This takes me back to when I would lay down in front of the tv with my favorite Winnie the Pooh blanket, excited to watch whatever movie my parents put in for me.


I had that vhs as well! It was a good one. :)

I liked the secret world of alex mack when I was a kid about the girl who could turn into liquid to sneak under doors and I investigate the evil corporation that was polluting her town. This picture reminds me of her unique ability which I haven't seen any other shows use.

If I remember right she sometimes got frozen in freezers by villains.

I read some of the books too.


>Alex Mack
How about Alex Sax!??? It's better, muuuch better.


When I was around 3-5 years old I watched the first star wars trilogy almost every day. It was recorded on vhs off of a TV airing in the early 90s. There were commercials for Easter candy. Must've been around Easter when it was recorded. They're probably still in my mom's house somewhere.


Found a box with taped nights of Adult Swim from 2002-2005.

Haha, for the ones who dont know, the first one originated from cigarette commercials.

I mostly watched Benjamin Blümchen, Augsburger Puppenkiste and a recorded version of neverending story from TV.

I collect VHS today got over a hundred of trash movies and animated series.


I was at the right age to enjoy anime and fansubs from other college kids abusing the AV room. I wanted the buy the TV series releases that started to roll out soon after, but at $30 a tape… 90 episodes… this broke college kid couldn't afford $1200 a whack for the habit (and studios usually gave up on releasing it a couple seasons in anyway).

Torrents and cheap DVD box sets saved the day later in life but I got old at some point and stopped watching anime.
