Cape Town - In keeping with the popular #ThrowbackThursday trend we decided to search the internet to find 6 proudly South African TV facts that will make you feel super old!

1) 7de Laan

The first episode of SABC 2's popular Afrikaans soapie, 7de Laan, aired in 2000! Which means we've been sitting on our couch every day at 18:27 watching Matrone and Oubaas for 14 years!

2) K-T.V.

The first episode of M-Net’s wildly popular kids TV programme, K-T.V., was aired 24 years ago in 1990. The final episode was aired on 31 March 2011. Remember the catchy theme song?

3) Candîce Hillebrand

And here is another fun K-T.V. fact! Candîce Hillebrand, who was one of the young presenters on the TV show, is now 37 years old. In 2008, Hillebrand was offered the role of Nina Williams, a character in the film adaptation of the popular video game series, Tekken.

4) Mango Groove

The group's popular song Special Star was released in 1989! That means the song is 25 years old this year!

Or in other words: The song Special Star is 2 years older than our other local favourite hottie, Maps Maponyane!

5) Leon Schuster's There's a Zulu On my Stoep

This hilarious film first premiered in 1993! That makes the film older than our democracy! That's 21 years ago!

6) Volkswagen

The famous David Kramer Volkswagen ad was first aired 30 years ago in 1984.
