Disney + 90s Star Power!!

In case you forgot about the synergetic power of Disney teaming up with 1990s actors, singers, or athletes to appear on medium-sized magazine covers, we bring you these. Oh Bob Saget and Baby Herman... the messes you get yourselves into.

Sebastian terrified of Steve Urkel. Inside we can learn about "Other Cool Nerds."

Hulk Hogan with a dinosaur in a headlock. Oddly this was before Jurassic Park came out.

Macaulay Culkin afraid of his new school teacher, Ursula.

Two years later Macaulay rides a motorcyle with bus driver Mickey.

Neil Patrick Harris (big Disney fan) "gets spooked".

Luke Perry's school schedule includes "skateboarding" and "star fashion". Roger Rabbit carries his many books.

Paula Abdul + circuses?

Will Smith.

The Fresh Prince and the Evil Queen. Get it?

Melissa Joan Hart riding a flying carpet with a creepy Aladdin. And Timone. And Meeko? And King Louie?? What the?

Joey Lawrence wearing Aladdin-like clothing.

MC Hammer and Darkwing Duck.

Joe Montana rock climbing with Goofy. Of course.

Blossom and the Beast.

Arnold Schwarzenegger wearing a really nice belt.

Fred Savage with Santa Clause and the Rescue Rangers.

Rick Moranis. Always shrinking things or blowing things up in the 90s. In the 80s he was hillariously and unknowingly saving the world from poisonous beer.

HAA! I had many of these. What an interesting publication now that I think about it.

These are funny. Did we think any of these were normal back when they were released? How come half of these people have the same expression?? The excited yet worried mouth open look? Ha Ha Ha. Anyway, great finds.

we have now pinpointed the downfall of civilization.

I loved this as a kid. I had several of these.

October 11, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMeghan

I think I still have a bunch of these tucked in the basement...
Are they worth anything?

I feel like the 90's just punched me in the face. Fantastic finds!

I collected these from the beginning in 1990 until they stopped publication. The older ones featured here were much better in quality with educational content presented in a very interesting way. Towards the end they were basically Hannah Montana/Harry Potter fanzines. Noticed at least one scan from my own collection (see for more).

What a blast from the past!

These are hilarious. I still have the first 10 or so issues. Before they stopped they changed the magazine itself. Used to be a little thicker paper and squared with a glued binder then went to a stapled center binder and thinner magazine style paper.

OK, I guess 1990's fashion really WAS as ugly as I remember it being.

Oh... my... gosh... WHAT THE HECK???
