Don't know actually, but I got ass-kicked by some Lost Boys atari screens (Oh cricket whot a scorcher) and by the european demo from Overlanders...

The very first "demoscene" related stuff was a cracktro of the Batman game on Amstrad CPC, coded by Malibu Crackers. It was amazing because there was a scroller with rasters recoring the whole screen... I was 10. Then, it was on TV I watched prod such as "State of the Art". Then, I was 14 and I written to some people to send me demos (still on Amstrad CPC). And the story started..

The first demoscene prod I saw definitely was vectdemo by ultraforce, then some 4k intros from assembly'94 - giant, o4p, s!p move, fractals!... and after them - Unreal and Secod Reality.

The first scene production I saw (must have been the first) was Slideshow by Future Crew. The problem was, that I didn't understand english back then. So there was no way to recognize something like a "scene" behind it.
The fact that I saw this production as a "youngster" came back to my mind later when I already got in touch with the scene and watched Second Reality, Crystal Dreams and productions by Cascada, S!P or others...

AppleII : cracktro of Defender game (1982?)
C64 : cracktro of GieJoe games (1986?)
MSX : cracktro of a game (1986?)
Amstrad CPC : a Logon System demo (1987?)
Amiga : Kefrens megademo 8, i loved it (1989?) and cracktro of Barbarians game (1987?)
AtariST : cracktro of a game (1987?)
SuperNintendo(super-famicom) : cracktro of a game (1992?)
PC : oxygene demo at saturne party 2 or 3, i dont remember (1994)
the first ever sceneprod i saw must've been a c64-cracktro; the first demoscene prod, or moreover demo was something from digital excess in 1990, found on my very first magic disk.

9Fingers / Spaceballs (awesome music)
Some cracktros on the Atari ST, entertaining enough to make me write some of my own.

Then, at a friend's, some amiga demos. Red Sector was probably there. Never got an Amiga, tough, but I read the Hardware Manual just for kicks.

On PC, a nice package consisting of Unreal, Cronologia & Vector Demo. That made me want to make demos so much!

Not counting cracktros, it was some Xmas demo on c64... I really can't remeber who made it... ("usual" stuph with logo and falling snow)

blah. there wasn't much of a demoscene on my platform of choice those days:(

but hey, does art.bas that came with ibm basica count?-) it draws a "growing city" in a frame with random filled rectangles and plays random notes from the beeper :) (guess it was 85 or so)

hmmm. My first demo was a demo from an Atari ST Demo group but i don't remember the group's name. Anyway the first real prodz I saw were State of the art and some musicdisks around 1992.
The prods shown at Assembly '98, I can't really remember any of them except for Barry the orange and Moottori's intro, which I liked.

A Long time ago when i was very young (probably 1990 or something around that) i have seen some c64 cracktros, then when i got my own ibm-pc 80286 i saw a TRSI Cracktro (at least i remember this one, its not on Pouet btw). I really got in contact with the "Scene" around 3 Years ago when i saw Cryogoat 64k by Noice. I liked it alot :)

216: i don't think that counts;-) i saw similar stuff in or around 1985 as well... they were pretty cool in the eyes of a 7-year old back then;-)

First thing i ever saw was the C64 demo "Future Shock" by the Borderzone Dezign Team (around 1986) and it still rates as one of my all-time favourites.
