Teen Beat: September 1987

The September 1987 Teen Beat hits you with the typical mugs on the cover. You'd think that if it hadn't sunk in my head by this point that this was not a magazine for a junior high boy, the pink cover would have been a dead giveaway. Not so much.

The pin-ups were your usuals, as well. It's still odd to think that several of these teen celebrities are no longer with us. I often wonder, about River Phoenix especially, what would have become of these stars.

   
A page of stats on Kirk Cameron -- honestly, the reason that I read Cather in the Rye for the first time. And check out that floppy disc in the top left corner...

Also a sweet Adventures in Babysitting contest...

 
There's a shot of the future Michael Bluth as a guest on Hollywood Squares and even more ridiculous, a picture of Adam Horowitz (Beastie Boy Ad-Rock) on a date with Molly Ringwald...

 
How about a hat signed by the cast of one of the best movies to come from the 80's?!?

 
And I couldn't go through this issue without noting the preview of Lost Boys...

 
Man, oh, man. Sometimes I wish I was 11 years old again.
