I'm replying to this like I would have replied in the 1980s, not like I would reply today. I was born in 1980 so keep that in mind!

Favorite Movie - The Sesame Street Movie
Favorite Song - Not a song, but an album, The Chipmucks Christmas Album
Favorite Actor - Don't remember
Favorite Actress - again-don't remember
Favorite Singer - I think probably the Beatles or Rolling Stones because I heard them from birth.
Favorite Tv Show - Cosby, Family Ties(I watched this, but I don't remember any of the episodes off the top of my head), Today's Special, Sesame Street, and the Smurfs!!
Favorite Card Series - Baseball cards
Favorite Toy - Cabbage Patch Kids, My Little Ponies, baseball glove, roller skates

To go back to the 80s when that was all I had to worry about!! That would be wonderful. It was much more fun to fill that out like I was 6 years old then being 20 looking back!!

I'm going to reply to this like I would now because I don't remember the 80's! I was born in '79, but I still don't remember everything!

Fav Movie- The Running Man
Fav Song- Way too many to mention (I love 80's music!)
Fav Actor- Uh, I liked Saved By The Bell, so I guess Mark Paul Gosselaar
Fav Actress- ???????
Fav Singer- I always liked Billy Joel and Elton John
Fav TV Show- Well, Full House & Saved By The Bell, but I consider those more 90's, so I'm not sure. I recently saw Silver Spoons and that was cool, but I didn't watch it back then (of course, I didn't see The Running Man till last year so anything goes) Oh, I used to watch Family Feud with Ray Combs too.
Fav Toy- Easy Bake Oven, Barbies, Matchbox Cars, The Original Nintendo

Favorite Movie - "Clue" and "This is Spinal Tap"!!
Favorite Song - 80s music is NOT my thing. I'm more into 60s and 70s music.
Favorite Actor - Michael McKean (Lenny in L&S and in both the movies listed above)
Favorite Actress - Um... Penny Marshall, I guess. She was Laverne for 4 years in the 80s, so...
Favorite Singer - Eh... Was Vanilla Ice 80s or 90s?
Favorite Tv Show - Why, Laverne & Shirley, of course! Really, it was half and half. 4 years in the 70s, 4 in the 80s.
Favorite Card Series - I beg your pardon?
Favorite Toy - "Skip it! Skip it! And the very best part of all! There's a counter on this ball! It's Skip it! Skip it!" My Little Ponies too! Oh, and the slap bracelets (they're comin' back!) And glow in the dark necklaces... and... hey, were Quints in the 80s? I always remember having them, but my earliest memory is from 1990 (when I got my Cabbage Patch Kids big wheel.... another great toy!)... anyway, Quints were really cool, with 5 of everything! 5 li'l bath tubs and bath mats and rubber duckies and towels, and a 5 beds and a 5 baby stroller and a thing with 5 li'l pockets for 'em so you could carry 'em around! They were so cool!

Shirley: Well, Laverne is sort of childish
Laverne: Childish? Childish? Coming from a grown woman who throws tea parties for her stuffed cat?
Shirley: At least I don't sew L's on everything I wear!
Laverne: Well that would be pretty stupid considering your name's Shirley!

Michael: At what time was I born, Mother?
Mrs. Darling: Why, you were born at two o'clock in the nighttime, Dearest
Michael: Oh Mother, I hope I didn't wake you!
