Hmm well it's a little tough to place exactly but well as a kid, I loved cartoons of all types including the 1967 Spider-Man cartoon which did get pretty trippy and wacky especially in its later seasons, Astroboy (which features lot of fights with giant robots), Marvel Super-Hero cartoons which looked more like slightly animated comic books, which I also loved and were full of crazy monsters, super villains and of course superheroes. I recall the Fantastic Four and Incredible Hulk were two of my faves and both comics were very sci-fi driven.

But I really think my love of bad movies was born due to participation in youth club and school movie events. As a kid, my local youth club used to gather a bunch of us together and shows us films via film projector - that was my first introduction to Bruce Lee and I saw practically every single one of his films in this fashion. Also at school, they actually showed When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth when I was a kid as well as Supergirl and Batman: The Movie. I became more and more fascinated with superhero and adventure stories which naturally lead to more fascination with sci-fi and fantasy. As a teen too, I started staying up late at night and late-night TV was a real haven for B-movies. I caught so many in this way especially when I finally had access to Space: The Imagination Station. I think the first Bad Movie I recall really enjoying was The Giant Claw.

I always loved b-movies since I was a kid. My first "bad" movies would have to be Pieces and later on SOV stuff like Blood Cult, Boardinghouse, and The Ripper.

I think pot has been the gateway for many. It is a gateway drug, right?

Just kidding.

Growing up with older siblings who liked to watch Reefer Madness for a laugh was a factor, as was being an avid reader of Mad Magazine. Then, when I was around 12 or so, I saw It Came From Hollywood and that was it. Because of that movie, I have a particular fondness for 50's and 60's sci-fi and horror cheese.

I'm pretty sure it all started before the start of my coherent memory span. No, seriously. My mom enjoys b-movies more than the average joe (though not as much as those of us here), so in all likeliness I probably saw my first when I was still knee-high to a grasshopper. The first one I remember, though, was the classic "Night of the Living Dead." Or...was it "Godzilla?" One of those two.

EDIT: I should probably correct myself by pointing out that while "Night of the Living Dead" and "Godzilla" are (in my books anyway) B-movies, they aren't bad movies by any means. They just don't fit into higher-budget or high-brow fare although it is possible to get some more intelligent stuff out of them than the majority of their kin.

'Twas a danish monster movie infamously known as Reptilicus that I watched in my childhood. However, I didn't fully appreciate bad movies until I watched Krull. Since then,
b-movies became an important artistic aspect in my life.  Smile

Oh, I failed to mention that growing up as a young lad watching Johnny Sokko and his Flying Robot and Inframan had a huge influence.

As a youth I watched a lot of Night Flight, and then the B-fare of Up All Night on USA.  Lots of Cheese there.  (Sorority Girls at teh Slime Ball Bowlerama and Chopping Mall come to mind)
Later on, there was a show doing redubbed B films called Mad Movies.  That sort of primed the pump. 

In college I discoverd MST3K and Joe Bob Briggs.  By then I was hooked.

After The Stuff, obviously, I'd have to say that the earliest really bad movie that I used to watch for its badness was The Devil's Bride starring Charles Gray.  I had never seen Rocky Horror or any of his Bond movies and had no idea who Charles Gray was, but somehow I had to watch that movie whenever it was on.

And the Star Trek episode "Where No Man Has Gone Before", I remember that one too.  And rooting for the mutant crew members to kill Kirk and win - I almost always root for the "bad guys".  It's more fun that way, but almost always ends up disappointing at the end.

I honestly am not sure.
I grew up as a kid in the early eighties, so I was influenced by a mish-mash of shows.
It didn't help (or maybe it did), that as I come from a family of seven, those 99-cent movie rental places were good entertainment for the family and I would happily wander the shelves at a tender age reading movie boxes about "C.H.U.D." or "Attack Of The Killer Queen Bee Women".

Stuff that I actually remember from my earliest point though?
Well, the first movie I ever saw at the babysitters when I was 6 that later inspired me to throw saw-blades at our wooden fence was AhNolds "Commando"
That and a love of sci-fi movies has lead me to wonderful things like "Aliens At My Babysitter"

Some I'm not even sure of the name of. It would be something I read about and suddenly realize I'd seen the movie on Sat afternoon tv years and years ago.

I forgot to add that one of my earliest in-theatre movies was the 1970's King Kong.  But I remember little aside from the final battle.
