C'Mon Fwank was a nostalgia-themed website that started in an unknown year (possibly the early 2000s). Its content focused on 1980s and 1990s toys, video games and children's TV shows (such as Double Dare). Its slogan was "It's Good to Live in the Past!".[1] It has a YouTube channel, but all of its videos have disappeared. Some of its videos survive on other sites with a cmonfwank.com watermark.

Two existing archived pages from the site were collected by RSTVideo. One is an article from 2008 about Braum's, an ice cream parlor, and the other is a "Personal Tribute" to Nickelodeon Studios (only the first page).[2][3]

The site's domain name expired in 2014. The website was once archived on archive.org, but has since been excluded from it. This could imply that the original creator of the site no longer wants it to be around in any form. The website was later purchased and converted into a blog to support a guy named "Fwank" whose career is largely built on style and travel.[4]
