That 90’s Show – Easter Eggs you might have missed

that 90s show

With the release of That ’90s Show on Netflix, fans of the original That ’70s Show can expect many Easter eggs scattered all over the 10 episodes.

Set 15 years after the season finale of That ’70s Show, the sequel series finds Eric Forman (Topher Grace) and Donna Pinciotti (Laura Prepon) married and living in Chicago with a teenage daughter of their own named Leia (Callie Haverda) — an Easter egg in itself. The family visits Kitty (Debra Jo Rupp) and Red (Kurtwood Smith) in Point Place, Wisconsin, for the summer, with Leia befriending a new generation of basement buddies.

Though the kids have their own adventures in Point Place, the series doesn’t forget where it came from with cameos, throwbacks, and gags from That ’70s Show… trust us, there’s a lot.

Red Dumbass Catchphrase

Red’s famous catchphrases “Foot in Ass” and “Dumbass”

Red hasn’t changed at all during those 15 years and we wouldn’t expect anything less from the grumpy grandpa. He still references putting his foot up people’s asses and refers to those who annoy him as “Dumbasses.”

The Hub on ‘That ’90s Show’

The Hub is Point Place’s local teen hangout and diner. The ‘70s gang hung out there often and played the pinball machine, which eventually turned into Space Invaders.. For the ‘90s gang, they still hang out there and now have an updated arcade game in the corner.

Fez on ‘That ’90s Show’

Fez’s country of origin is still UNKNOWN

Neighbor Sherri, who is dating Fez, was curious about where Fez was from. Just as Kitty is about to tell her, the kettle whistles, censoring her answer. This has been a running gag as Fez has always talked about his home country, but never revealed it.

The high circle returns!

This would not be That ’70s Show without the high circle. Brilliant ideas and hilarious scenes are produced from the circle. That ‘90s Show even included a flashback high circle from That ‘70s Show when Fez joined the new kids. Adult Donna makes an appearance after the flashback with Fez telling her ‘the old gang is here’.

Michael and Jackie Kelso

It was inevitable for Michael (Ashton Kutcher) and Jackie (Mila Kunis) to find their way back to each other after all these years. Although Jackie turned Michael down in Season 8 when he proposed to her, she revealed she always thought of Michael as her soulmate. It looks like they found their way back to each other after all and even had a son – Jay Kelso.

The basement

The basement was the sanctuary for the ‘70s gang to kill time, listen to music, and do “other stuff”. Now, the hangout spot has been inherited by Leia and her friends. The items and furniture in the basement may look familiar. The sofa and the glass grapes decor used to be in the living room during That ‘70s Show but now lives in the basement. The other items in the basement that are still there since the ‘70s include Green Bay Packers helmet aka “The Stupid Helmet” that the gang (mostly Kelso) wore when they did something stupid; the mushroom poster; the various toys including the yellow car boat; and, the American flag chest. It’s like no time had passed within those 15 years.
