I apologize in advance for making a Nintendo-related shirt, but the idea came to me in part, a friend of mine said something that sparked it further, and I absolutely had to do it. I looked around for similar shirts and am hoping there isn't one in some dark corner of the internet like this because I couldn't find a one.

The Game Boy was brought to North America in '89 (the year I was born), though I didn't get a chance to play with one until about 8 years later. ;D

Obviously, I took some artistic liberties with...er, most everything, actually, but I'm hoping it's all right. If not, I tried!

Re: 1981



MS DOS debuted in 1981. I felt this design would be an appropriate choice.

Thanks!

In 1974, "Lucy," a 3.2 million-year-old female hominid of the species Australopithecus afarensis, was discovered by scientists in Ethiopia's Afar Depression... but I don't think this the Lucy they found or was it?

Re: 1971 - Fuzzy Warbles



Based on the 1971 classic A Clockwork Orange and my favorite quote "What you got back home, little sister, to play your fuzzy warbles on? I bet you got little save pitiful, portable picnic players. Come with uncle and hear all proper! Hear angel trumpets and devil trombones. You are invited."
I figured it would be nice to have a Clockwork Orange shirt that wasn't focused on Alex or milk...

Re: 1990



Shockingly, I was born in 1990. That year we found "Sue" the most preserved T-rex skeleton to date.

We were also introduced to Mario's trusty steed, in Super Mario World!

The first shorts of The Simpsons became a part of The Tracey Ullman Show on April 19, 1987. Later, in 1989 we had the first episodes of one of the most amazing series that have ever existed!:D:D:D

Re: 1993



In 1993, leather jackets, flannel shirts, and Converse shoes were especially popular. Also, that's when the movie Jurassic Park came out.

Enjoy!

Indiana Jones made his debut in the summer of 1981, and suddenly an underused farm implement attains pop culture status.

Yeah, so there's that...

A lot of cool thinks happen during the 19974, my Mom was the winner at that year!

One of the blockbusters during 1974 was the young frankenstein, plus the Ball and wheel mouse was patented.

Brilliant, especially in light of Apple's recent human rights violation accusations.

Might want to resubmit without the "Vote!" on your thumbnail. That's against the rules nowadays and they could reject you for it.
