How many of these top 10 ultimate 90’s Adelaide moments do you remember?

DAN SCHMIDT

Ahhh, Adelaide in the 1990’s. From happy pants and hypercolor shirts to bank collapses and horrific murders, we certainly had a lot going for us back then.

Let’s see how many of these top 10 ultimate Adelaide moments all you 90’s kids can remember:

#10: The local radio wars culminating with Adam Hills running over Bob Francis in a SAFM Black Thunder.

#9: When city rascal Bart Simpson sawed the head off Colonel Light’s statue.

#8: When Magic Mountain erupted in 1992, spewing lava down the waterslides and killing thousands.

#7: The 1997-1998 Crows winning back to back Premierships on A*Mazing.

#6: When they would spray Farmer’s Union Iced Coffee on the Adelaide Grand Prix podium instead of champagne.

#5: When Jerry broke up with Georgina McGuinness over her pronunciation of “Lego” at a Dazzleland Exhibition.

#4: Keith Conlon inventing the Tamagotchi.

#3: When the Myer Centre had to close for weeks due to a Puggle infestation in 1993. Thousands of wild Puggles were culled in order to control herd numbers.

#2: That time the Torrens was filled with green Gak as part of a Nickelodeon promotion for “Clarissa Explains It All”.

#1: When former Norwood hard man Garry McIntosh hosted his own short-lived Morning Show “Macca In The Morn” which ended after he hip-and-shouldered a grandmother for her subpar vanilla slice in the cooking segment.

How many did you remember? Let us know in the comments.
