For anyone who grew up watching kids' movies in the 1980s, looking back on them offers a bit of nostalgia. Some of the best kids' movies of all time came from the decade, and before you object to that statement, just recall for a moment the likes of The Goonies, The Princess Bride, and E.T., The Extra-Terrestrial. Yes, the '80s was a great decade for amazing kids' movies, so it's not uncommon for later generations to enjoy them just as much.
Of course, watching a movie as a child and watching it as an adult is an entirely different sort of viewing. When we're older, we see all the jokes inserted to keep the parents entertained. Add to that all of the details that skipped by a child's eyes on a first, second, or 55th viewing, and there's plenty to see. This list highlights the very best small but awesome details from '80s kids' movies we definitely missed growing up that viewers have posted to the Movie Details subreddit.
