80's Dan was a Human from the Channel Awesome Multiverse. At one point, during his Earth's version of the 1980s, Dan was mysteriously brought to the future, through means which remain unknown to him.
Upon being brought there, he clung to his former life, attempting to give other people an appreciation for 80's culture.
R.O.B. was his roommate, and his neighbours included Travis Crabtree, and The Cinema Snob, who lived beneath him, all living in the town of Springfield, Illinois.
He got along pretty well with 90's Kid, and enjoyed playing Poker with The Ghost of Christmas Future and Rob Walker at the Nostalgia Critic's house.
