Mt. Rushmore: First Crushes

March 27, 2009
With the TV Theme Madness in full swing, an interesting argument arose. Who was the ultimate first crush?

Well, we are here to settle it. So let’s have the list.

Winnie Cooper

Oh yes, Winnie. The classic. Winnie may have been the best because she hooked up with Kevin Arnold, which gave us all hope. Since Kevin was the kind of guy that narrated his own life, we felt like if he could hit that, we could hit that.

Topanga Lawrence

Also from the Kevin Arnold approach, Corey Matthews had NO business being with the lovely Topanga. The show also perfectly framed her development from weird girl to normal girl to hot girl.

DJ Tanner

Looking back, she may not have been the end all be all of girls that we remember. But at the time, there wasn’t a guy in 3rd grade that didn’t swoon over the older DJ. She doesn’t have the “dating a dork” syndrome like Winnie and Topanga, but Steve was a pretty cool guy. He was the voice of Aladdin, which was the only Disney movie boys were allowed to like. In fact, Full House may have been responsible for our first regular crush and our first man-crush. (Our current man-crush is Mike Tomlin. Not sure when that will end.)

Alicia “Al” Lambert

Impossible to find a good picture from this show.

Yes, there was a spirited debate over whether or not to include Al in the list. But the fact that she’s in the Bud Light commercial with the ax and chainsaw guys put her over the edge.

She may have been a tomboy at first, but no writer could keep her down. We could all see the awesomeness underneath, even if she went by “Al”.


There was much consideration for Alex Mack. Since Google Images is already up, we might as well include a picture.

We have no idea what the hell is going on here.

She also hooked up with a dork in 10 Things I Hate About You. And who among us has never yelled, “And he’s back in the game!”
