12 ’90s TV haikus in response to Samuel L. Jackson’s ‘Boy Meets World’ poem

Last night, Samuel L. Jackson showed off his slam poetry prowess with a ditty about the hit TGIF show “Boy Meets World” on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.” Of course, he totally killed it, which is appropriate, given that it is National Poetry Month. But Sam, you’re not the only one who knows how to dig deep on the theme of ’90s TV shows. As a matter of fact, here are some haikus to show just how passionate BDCwire is about classic television.

“Hey Arnold”

PS 118
Helga, love-scorned wraith, screeches
“move it, football head!”

 

“Full House”

Uncle Jesse got
no love for Kimmy Gibbler
How rude, have mercy

 

 “Salute Your Shorts”

Poor old Donkey Lips,
Budnick does not control you
Hold you in our hearts

 

“Are You Afraid of the Dark?”

Lame-ass teens gather
Camp fire, no booze, to tell
PG horror tales

 

“The Secret World of Alex Mack”

Is this a Capri-
Sun commercial? Nevermind,
it’s just Alex Mack

 

“The Adventures of Pete and Pete”

Rock, paper, scissors
Don’t dare throw scissors, lil’ Pete
Wrath of Papercut

 

“The Amanda Show”

Welcome to the show
Judge Trudy, Jacuzzi, then
the dancing lobsters

 

“All That”

I’m Repair Man
man man man man man man man!
Mwa ha ha ha ha!

 

“All That, Pt. II”

Good Burger, home of
the Good Burger, can I de-
fine your childhood?

 

“Step By Step”

Cody seemed cool back
then, but now that whole trailer
thing is kinda weird

 

“The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”

Will Smith, how much is
the cab fare from West Philly
to California?

 

“Clarissa Explains it All”

Nah Nah Na Na Na
Na-Na Na-Na Na Na
Na. Alright! Alright!
