Just over 30 years ago, America was introduced to four sassy women who represented the true origin of the hashtag #squadgoals. Blanche, Rose, Dorothy, and Sophia, also known as The Golden Girls, were smart and funny and unlike any other characters on television. The ladies packed it in after seven seasons, but thanks to reruns, DVDs, and the Internet, they are still as relevant today as they were in the 1980s.
From memes to Funko figures to daily art projects devoted to one of the show's main characters, The Golden Girls are pop culture legends, and legends should be honored. Here are some fan-made products that you can buy to show your love for the gems of 6151 Richmond Street.

9. NAME LIST HOODIE
