For kids of all ages, the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade means one thing: awesome floats. And no time were they more awesome than during the '80s and '90s.

Whether it's lavish spectacles that bring cherished childhood favorites (He-Man, Sonic the Hedgehog) to life or guest appearances from stars like The Backstreet Boys and ALF, parade floats from years past provide a nostalgic window to a simpler, more Dolph Lundgren-filled time. Check out ten clips of some of our favorite Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade moments of yore below.
