A genuinely hilarious show on Nickelodeon in the mid-1990s. 'RML' was an ingenious parody of 1990s life, poking fun at big businesses, coffee shops, credit cards, and many other things. Since it was on a children's network, the show's creators had to throw in some 'potty jokes,' as much of the show's true humor was too highbrow for the average ten year-old.
Rocko's Modern Life still airs on Nicktoons TV, but I don't think that very many people receive that channel.
Group of special agents who specialize in the capture and apprehension of ghosts, demons, cretins, evil spirits, etc. Ghostbusters should be called whenever paranormal activities are suspected, including when there is something strange in the neighborhood or an invisible man sleeping in your bed.
The refrigerator had become possessed, so I called the Ghostbusters.
San Diego's baseball team. The Padres were notoriously bad intheir first decade of existnce, the 1970s, before winning their first NL pennant in 1984. After having an up-and-down 90s, the Padres appeared to be headed for a decade of failure by finishing last in the NL West from 2000-2003. However, the team turned things around in 2004, dumping the orange/blue color combination for a new, deep blue/tan combo. This switch was made to signify the organization's turnaround with their new ballpark, PETCO Park. The Padres did indeed play well in 2004, staying in playoff contention until September's final weeks.
The Padres were originally owned by Ray Kroc, the original owner of the McDonald's franchise, but won their first NL pennant after his death in January 1984.
