Perry made '90s teenagers swoon with his portrayal of the James Dean-ish Dylan McKay on Beverly Hills 90210. Already well into his 20s when he played high-schooler Dylan, Perry will turn 50 next year. Do you feel old yet?
You either wanted to be him, or you wanted him to take you to the prom. On Saved by the Bell, Gosselaar played Zack Morris, a blond version of Ferris Bueller who could charm the hell out of anyone, kids and adults alike.
Due to his role as Mike Seaver on the sitcom Growing Pains, Kirk Cameron became one of the most popular teen heartthrobs of the '80s. But when the show ended in 1992, Cameron left show business completely, and absolutely no one's heard a peep from him since. Not a peep.
Those of us who grew up in the '90s need only whisper the name "Topanga" to make one another swoon. Early on in Boy Meets World, the character was written as a hippie, weirdo antagonist for main character Cory Matthews. This was quickly retconned to make her his love interest, because duh.
Tevin Campbell was the biggest teenage R&B singer of the early '90s with hits like "Tell Me What You Want Me to Do" and "Can We Talk." When he showed up on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Moesha to woo both Tatyana Ali and Brandy, we were jealous of all three of them.
Everyone Fred Savage's age was totally jealous of Kevin Arnold's relationship with Winnie Cooper on The Wonder Years. The thinking tween's crush, Winnie was cute and smart, just like the actress who played her, Danica McKellar, who holds a Ph.D. in mathematics.
Although significantly older than anyone else on this list, Harrison Ford still held sway over the hearts of a generation of '80s and '90s tweens and teens (and their moms). It's not that surprising. We're talking about the guy who played Han Solo and Indiana Jones.
Out of every teen movie ever made, perhaps no single image is more iconic than Phoebe Cates' pool scene in Fast Times at Ridgemont High. But we loved her in other movies, too! Just try not to crush on her as Kate in Gremlins. We dare you.
Middle-class kids had a special crush on Johnny Galecki when he played the quiet and intelligent David Healy, Darlene's on-again/off-again boyfriend on Roseanne, and he's still beloved today as Leonard Hofstadter on The Big Bang Theory.
First we had a crush on Neve Campbell when she played Julia, the middle child of the Salinger siblings on Party of Five, and then she made us fear for her life about 100 different times in the Scream movies.
The undisputed king of '90s teen idols, Jonathan Taylor Thomas commanded the hearts of a generation of young girls when he gained fame as the middle son on TV's Home Improvement. Thomas made a couple of movies (including something called The Lion King, probably an obscure, art-house flick) before exiting show business when he reached adulthood.
