Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Saved By The Bell, Dawson's Creek, Sister Sister, My So-Called Life: TV in the 90s was packed with teens dishing out advice on everything from love and life to dealing with heartache.

They may have had questionable fashion sense, but they sure knew a thing or two when it came to the school of life. 

How to handle an embarrassing situation, for example (Joey Potter), self confidence (Will 'Fresh Prince' Smith)  and the importance of sharing a kind word with those close to you (Angela Chase).
