SHOCKING: Who did these ’90s kid stars grow up to be?

Scott Weinger discovered a whole new world after "Full House."

Back when we were toting around Lisa Frank Trapper Keepers and gambling with pogs, we were also devoted to a set of favorite TV and movie stars. Teen actors were a critical part of the ’90s, as so many classics came out of the stone-washed-jeans-and-scrunchie era.

Maybe you had Mike Seaver’s face from “Growing Pains” taped inside your locker or a photo of Topanga from “Boy Meets World” plastered on the ceiling above your bunk bed. These teen idols will always hold a special place in our hearts and, for that reason, our curiosity is peaked as we now wonder whatever happened to them.

Some 90s teen stars, like Jessica Biel or Mario Lopez, are still in the limelight with high profile careers. It’s the lesser known heartthrobs that we explore today. Behold the shocking futures of your favorite 90s teen stars. You may not even recognize them.

Larisa Oleynik

She fascinated us as a teen with super powers on “The Secret World of Alex Mack.” She went on with her acting career and starred in well known movies like “The Babysitters Club” and “10 Things I Hate About You.” These days, though, a mature Oleynik can be spotted as Jenna Kaye on “Hawaii Five-0″ and Ken Cosgrove’s wife on “Mad Men.”

Mayim Bialik

The former tween star won our hearts as quirky modern teen Blossom Russo in “Blossom.” Her quick wit translated from her real-life smarts: Did you know she has a Ph.D. in neuroscience from UCLA? These days, you’ll see her as Amy Farrah Fowler in “The Big Bang Theory.”

Kirk Cameron

We prefer to remember Kirk Cameron as Mike Seaver from “Growing Pains,”
but these days, he’s a far cry from his lovable boy character. Cameron
has become rather outspoken in conservative politics and recently made
headlines for some controversial remarks about homosexuality.

Mike Judge

Though he was hardly a familiar face, Mike Judge created and voiced both Beavis and Butthead in the naughty cartoon that defined our adolescence. That’s not his only claim to fame, though — years later, he was spotted in “Office Space” as Stan, the annoying clueless manager of  Chotchkie’s.

Shawna Waldron

You probably wouldn’t recognize Waldron as Ice Box from the movie “Little Giants” if you saw her now. She’s certainly all grown up now and has since starred in some racy films like “Poison Ivy: The Secret Society.”

Danielle Fishel

She won our hearts as Topanga on “Boy Meets World,” but Fishel didn’t stop there. Not only is she now a spokesperson for Nutrisystem diet foods, but she is also a host on Style Network’s “The Dish.”

Adam Scott

You probably recognize Adam Scott as Ben Wyatt from “Parks and Recreation.” However, he was making us laugh long ago (with the same haircut), when he starred in the reoccurring role of Griff the bully on “Boy Meets World.”

Mackenzie Rosman

We loved watching Mackenzie as the mischievous little sister Ruthie on “Seventh Heaven.” We thought she had dropped off the face of the Earth since the show, but turns out she’s just grown up so much that we barely recognized her as Zoe on “The Secret Life of the American Teenager.”

Jaleel White

Did he do that? Yes, he did. Jaleel White, best known for his comedic character Steve Urkel on TGIF favorite “Family Matters,” is now sashaying across the dance floor on the current season of “Dancing With The Stars.” It’s safe to say he grew out of the awkward phase.

Scott Weinger

This one blew our minds. Weinger, who will forever be known to us as DJ
Tanner’s boyfriend on “Full House” eventually moved on to an extremely
well-known character — he’s the voice of Disney’s Aladdin!
