Fuck, I remember the DAY this premiered. My sister and I were SO STOKED on the show from the previews alone; we thought it was HILARIOUS (our mom did not, of course.) We camped out on the couch all morning before it started.
According to the internetz, it first aired May 1, 1999, so I was several days away from being 11 and my sister had just turned 7. I think our enthusiasm for such a bizarre show at that age just made us predestined to smoke weed.
