Happy birthday, America! In honor of Independence Day, we're taking it back to an epic moment in our nation's TV history. In 1992, the late, great John Ritter hosted "Celebrate the Spirit," an all-star July 4th special that might be one of the most early '90s thing we've ever laid our eyes on.

This clip is a true relic of the decade and features a bundle of the day's most talked-about stars. For starters, there's Billy Ray "Achy Breaky Heart" Cyrus. Then we have a Kriss Kross (you know -- they made you "Jump! Jump!") And oh, look! There's "My Girl" star Anna Chlumsky. (Now known as Amy on "Veep.") There's also Celine Dion, Martina McBride, and tumblers doing a routine to "2 Legit 2 Quit" by MC Hammer.

It's like a mini pop culture time capsule, you guys! Go ahead and celebrate the US by watching a clip from this glorious display of fine entertainment and patriotism:
