Now that it seems Netflix may be bringing Full House back to life, we're all about waxing nostalgic. Here are 13 other '90s shows we'd like to see partake in the reboot/revival trend.
Alex Mack was the cool girl next door who had awesome hats and awesome powers (telekinesis, turning into a puddle), thanks to getting drenched in the GC-161 chemical, for which her dad gave her the cure in the series finale. Did she take it? We're gonna say no, otherwise a reboot sans bolt-zapping would be super boring.
We're all grown up now, but we're still haunted by the tales the Midnight Society told around the fire. They were campy, creepy and legitimately terrifying that we still can't believe this was a kids' show. These were the true American horror stories.
Camp Anawanna, we still hold you in our hearts! Salute Your Shorts may not have been the most realistic depiction of summer camp (or maybe it was depending on yours), but Donkeylips, Ug, Sponge, et. al's antics are timeless. Plus, a reboot would be easy: Everyone would return as counselors.
Before Melissa Joan Hart was a teenage witch, she explained it all — "all" being all things teen, not to mention how to get a guy (friend) to climb through your bedroom window. Back then, it was boys, zits, dealing with your annoying brother (Ferguson!) and training bras, but we're sure she could impart the same sage wisdom for 21st-century teens.
Where would Urkel be today? We're guessing still with Laura, and he probably would've found a way to go back to space. But more importantly, what would his wardrobe look like?
Frankly, it's a little surprising this hasn't happened yet with Jaden Smith inheriting his dad's throne. Not unlike how Cory is the new Feeny on Girl Meets World, Will would be the new Uncle Phil, which would carry even more poignancy in the wake of James L. Avery's death.
All the Nicktoons were great, but Doug ushered in a new age of kids' shows by being extraordinarily ordinary. Doug Funnie was endlessly relatable as just an average 11-year-old with a very active imagination dealing with school, bullies, fitting in and crushing on Patti Mayonnaise. Though we're not sure how he'd feel to know that Patti's now behind bars.
Step by Step was The Brady Bunch of the '90s, and the latter got a handful of spin-offs, sequels and movies. Besides, Patrick Duffy is already on board.
The nihilistic teen and her drier-than-gin wit is severely missed, and the show would surely have a field day satirizing culture today. Beavis and Butt-head got a brief second life, so surely Daria can too, right?
No one made us dance like no one's watching more than Blossom. We can totally picture her running a vintage clothing store specializing in flower hats and vests these days. And Six and Joey would be together. Whoa!
It's high time we return to the Bar None Dude Ranch — just watch out for those man-eating jackrabbits and killer cacti. If this ever happens, we'd be down one staffer: The cast revealed that no one has any idea where Joe Torres (Danny Lightfoot) is.
Guts, hosted by Mike O'Malley and officiated by the world's best ref Moira "Mo" Quirk, was a reality competition series before that was a thing. It made being active look cool. And who didn't want a piece of the Aggro Crag?
Legends, hosted by Kirk Fogg and Olmec the talking head, was a fun combo of history lessons/legends and puzzle-solving. Plus, we miss the schadenfreude from the spectacular Temple Run fails.
