    1970s - Janet Lynn, John Curry and Toller Cranston. Tai and Randy. Didn't know much about ice dance, but I found Ludmila Pakhomova captivating. Rodnina with any partner. And Dorothy Hamill wasn't too bad.

    Amen to pollyanna's choices.
    The skaters that followed built on their technical/artistic innovations.

    The 1990s, though I have two biases: one, it is when I began watching and two, it is when there was extensive TV coverage and extensive skating happening period.

    Favorite skaters: Maria Butyrskaya, Midori Ito, Tonya Harding, Caryn Kadavy (she was a pro), Denise Biellmann (as a pro), Chen Lu, Yuka Sato, Oksana Baiul, Nicole Bobek, Christopher Bowman, Viktor Petrenko, Paul Wylie, Mishkutenok/Dmitriev, Woetzel/Steuer, Torvill/Dean, Usova/Zhulin, Duchesnay/Duchesnay, and many more!

    The 90s

    Pairs: M&D, B&S, G&G (their professional routines), K&D, A&B
    Ice Dance: G&P, U&Z, A&P, K&P, K&O
    Ladies: Ito, Yamaguchi, Slutskaya, Chen, Markova
    Men: Browning, Kulik, Plushenko, Yagudin, Candeloro, Klimkin (although probably more of a '00 skater), Bowman

    There are a lot more skaters who skated in the 1990s, but I tend to view them more as 80s skaters or 00 skaters, rather than 90s skaters.

    90's

    Ladies- Kwan, Lipinski, Baiul (before her problems), Yamaguchi

    Men- Browning, Petrenko, Elderidge, Kulik

    Dance- G/P, K/O, T/D

    Pairs- M/D, G/G, B/S

    It's tough though because a lot of skters I like are from the 2000's as well.
