My nostalgic TV

He reviews each clip from every decade and curates them into one place, moving them from YouTube himself. He credits each video, which you can view on the screen.

Each decade currently has thousands of clips available, all viewable on a cute TV screen that reminds you of your grandmother’s living room. The entire collection has over 125,000 clips, so you’ll likely never run out of things to watch.

Each decade is broken into multiple categories like music, news, and soaps, so you can choose the type of clips you are most interested in viewing.

How it works

When you head to any of the decades, you’ll be brought to a page with an old-looking television. Press the power button, and a random clip will appear on the screen. If you want to skip to the next channel, press the up or down button.

The volume buttons work as well. Press up or down to adjust the volume. Click the menu button for a list of keyboard shortcuts to manage the on-screen television.


Head to for an absolute blast from the past. This TV is true to the era, and you’ll need to hit the dials to skip to the next video. From commercials advertising Clint Eastwood’s early movies to clips of Elvis singing his top hits, you’ll have a glimpse of your favorite moments from the 1960s.


If you are missing bell bottoms and rock music, my70stv is the site for you. While the TV will shuffle between thousands of clips, you might come across the Lions versus Bears playing on a Sunday in 1978 or John Williamson on his guitar serenading you with “Old Man Emu.”


The 80s were a lot of fun with some interesting hairstyles. Press the power button and relive the highlights of Iron Maiden, or discover Robin Williams mocking politicians on SNL.


If you are a millennial, the 90s are still vivid in your mind. It was an entertaining decade from the “Fresh Prince of BelAir” to Nirvana. You never know what you’ll find, from clips of Michael Jackson healing the world to the Jets versus the Colts.
