Oh, how I miss the days of Tranformers, GI Joe, and He-Man. If only I could be 8 years old again.
2002-03-31 12:53:53 AM  
2002-03-31 12:54:43 AM  
Yea, those sucked alright!
2002-03-31 12:55:55 AM  
It's not well-known that Phil Hartman provided the voice of Dennis the Menace's dad in the cartoon.
2002-03-31 12:59:30 AM  
You didn't think I forgot about Camp Candy, did you? Of course I didn't! Camp Candy aired from 1989 - 1991, and featured the starpower of comedy legend John Candy. Camp Candy was based around John as a counsellor at his own children's camp.
How could this not be cool ?
I thought the ALF cartoon (?80's) was great !
2002-03-31 01:03:22 AM  
Yes, show us something that is crappy.

Nice concept.
2002-03-31 01:04:02 AM  
Foofur sucked donkeys and I generally agree with his list, but I actually liked the Gummi Bears. There were WAY more cartoons that sucked more than that.
2002-03-31 01:05:27 AM  
I seemed to remember liking The Gummi Bears, or is that me?

Though, I have to agree, the majority of those sucked.
2002-03-31 01:05:45 AM  
God Farking Damn.

Seems like every cartoon in the 80's was made to brainwash kids and turn them into Ned Flanders clones.
2002-03-31 01:06:00 AM  
Okay then, is it just SpaceMoose and me?
2002-03-31 01:08:32 AM  
That's nothing to...

2002-03-31 01:11:30 AM  
i always hated this one show called 'the wuzzles'
2002-03-31 01:13:16 AM  
Hey! I liked Gummi bears!
2002-03-31 01:13:24 AM  
Anyone remember the cartoon where the kid morphed into his car?
2002-03-31 01:14:25 AM  
i could handle the gummi bears, not my favorite show by any stretch, but not deserving of the top ten worst ranking.

i think that rescue rangers could take it spot.
2002-03-31 01:16:23 AM  
Punky Brewster and The Gummi Bears were the bomb when I was growing up.I agree with the rest of this list,though.
2002-03-31 01:17:44 AM  
here were my top five cartoons from back in the day:

he-man (#1)
muppet babies
the rambo cartoon
2002-03-31 01:18:12 AM  
Cartoons nowadays tend to suck.Rather than writing any plots,it's just random mindless stupidity or cliche'd heroism.
2002-03-31 01:20:01 AM  

i also loved the gummi bears.. that mean we're outcasts?
2002-03-31 01:20:38 AM

Very smart, and always prepared.
2002-03-31 01:20:55 AM  
for some reason, i just had a faint remembrance of a Mr. T cartoon. i think it was Mr. T and a couple of kids, and they would run around and do stuff, and the kids were gymnasts or something. pretty dumb.

i thought much less of T after i saw that show.
2002-03-31 01:21:09 AM  
Soundwave980: You remember that piece of shiat show? How about The Noozles (sp?)? It was about a koala that would become "unstuffed" or "awakened" when you rubbed your nose against his. Then they went on all sorts of trips only the most devoted fan of Timothy Leary could dream of. And to top it all off, it blurred the lines between shiatty American cartoons, and shiatty Japanese cartoons (to this day I do not know which culture spawned it, because it has elements of American and Japanese style... must be some bullshiat joint venture meant to confuse and boggle me).
2002-03-31 01:21:11 AM  
His reason for hating Kissyfur is that Kissyfur was obviously a homosexual bear. Good reason for this homo to move on to the next article...
2002-03-31 01:22:35 AM  
Soundwave980 I've had just about enough of your Rescue Rangers knocking.
2002-03-31 01:22:47 AM  
kanonball - aren't you missing the villians?

i think they were some kind of crocodiles, but i may just be an idiot.
2002-03-31 01:25:03 AM  
I was born in 1982, so I missed a lot of the early 80's cartoons, but thankfully, I live in Canada, so we get shows about five years after the US.
2002-03-31 01:25:24 AM  
Let me be the third to say that I liked The Gummi Bears when I was a kid. It wasn't even particularly obscure. Don't think Dennis the Menace was, either; that thing was still in syndication in the mid-90s, frighteningly enough.
2002-03-31 01:26:34 AM  
Oh, and I liked the Noozles, too, damn it.

Although I'm just as stumped as to whether it was a Japanese anime or an American cartoon...
2002-03-31 01:27:03 AM  
What was that one show where the kid could do whatever he wanted with a magic baseball mitt? I think he was voiced by Maculy Culkin or someone.

Also, you couldn't beat Captain N for pure commercialism.
"Look! It's Bayou Billy! I love that game he's in! Available now!"
2002-03-31 01:27:23 AM  
classic - sorry. i retract my previous statement and submit in its place: the snorks

nazzerov - yeah, the noozles. it sucked.
2002-03-31 01:27:25 AM  
Kissyfur WAS awful.I didn't watch it because was boring,and 2.I wasn't about to watch and listen to what some swamp trash bear had to say.
2002-03-31 01:27:32 AM  
HEY!! Camp Candy kicked ass!

Here are some cartoons that really sucked A$$, though.
Kidd Video, some cartoon about glowing worms that sings songs (Glo Worms, I think), Anything on NBC in the 80's (Except Mr. T, of course). Back in the early 80s, there was this show on Nickelodeon that took the farking cake, PINWHEEL! My sister used to make me watch that crap every single farking day! Does anyone else remember that? Also, these religious cartoons that used to be on some religious channel in the early 80s that was the only thing (besides Sesame Street and I Love Lucy) that my pre-school teacher would let me watch (Christian, obviously). They annoyed the fark outta me.
2002-03-31 01:28:33 AM  
mack-salmon : you are referring to wish kid
2002-03-31 01:29:28 AM  
Augh I remember all of these. Please make the pain go away.
2002-03-31 01:30:20 AM  
Prinzeeugen: Thanks for reminding me of the noozles, a$$!
(Just Kidding 'bout the insult, but seriously, I hated them!) Almost made me chuck my doritos and beer!
2002-03-31 01:30:45 AM  
I liked the Gummi Bears. Contrary to popular belief, it wasn't a flamming advertisement, and it actually had a decent plot (well, when stacked against the other cartoons of the time -- what with all the Pound Puppies, Snorks, and Kissyfur crap, how can it NOT be superior?).

Thundercats was okay. Mum-ra is greater than everybody. So evil yet so inefficient! How about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? That show stole a good portion of my life. Never got into transformers, but I hear the new ones are shiatty, leave it to fox to ruin it. =D

Of course Space Ghost (and his spin-offs including Space Ghost Coast To Coast, and that one other show I can't remember the name of (memory, blurring...) still owns anything on t.v. to this very day.
2002-03-31 01:30:50 AM  
You know,I never saw Captain N.I was too busy with good cartoons like Rescue Rangers and Ducktales.And Talespin.God damn,Talespin kicked ass.I'm not a big Disney fan,and I'd love it if they brought it back.
2002-03-31 01:31:10 AM  
captain n and the gamemasters rocked

i had never played mega man or castlevania until after i watched that cartoon, and for that, i am in its debt, for those games kicked ass
2002-03-31 01:31:43 AM  
Was Darkwing Duck in the 80s or 90s? Same with Animaniacs. I think they were both early 90s, and I loved them both as well.
2002-03-31 01:31:46 AM  
Does anyone remember ProStars? That was one of the dumbest cartoons I've ever seen.
2002-03-31 01:32:41 AM  
Can't find any "EVIL" wuzzles , Soundwave
All Wuzzles
Bumblelion   Rhinokey   Eleroo   Butterbear   Moosel   Hoppopotamus
Tycoon   Woolrus   Skowl   Pandeaver   Piggypine   Koalakeet
2002-03-31 01:33:30 AM  
kthulhu - sounds like you like disney to me. all those cartoons were brought to you by the evil empire of disney
2002-03-31 01:33:52 AM  
Yeah I liked The Gummy Bears too. And also Dennis the Menace, because it would always end with the whole cast laughing at something stupid that silly, silly Ralph would do.
2002-03-31 01:34:12 AM  
This isn't a cartoon, but thinking about this 80's kid's show seriously makes me want to vomit: [image from too old to be available]
2002-03-31 01:34:24 AM  
kanonball - maybe i am just retarded
2002-03-31 01:34:35 AM  
The original Space Ghost cartoon and contemporary 70s Hanna-Barbara attempts at science fiction remain wonderfully bad to this day. If any of you get the Boomerang channel--I don't, but I watch the occasional Boomerang sneak peeks on Cartoon Network--enjoy some of that utter crap. It's like Superfriends, only worse.
2002-03-31 01:35:54 AM  
I remember proStars. Wasn't that with all the famous atheletes like Gretzky (sp?)?

Quick1: I believe you are right, both were early 90s. I remember the super hero planet episodes the best. You know, where everyone on the planet is a super hero, and the "normal guy" goes missing?
2002-03-31 01:35:59 AM  
Classic, I hate you. Remembering Zoobilee Zoo is worse than dredging up memories of childhood molestation.
2002-03-31 01:36:17 AM  
ZOOBLIE ZOO SCARED THE SHIOT OUTTA ME!!!! episode was about breaking a window, and the same day, a window broke and I got into trouble!.....DAMN YOU ZOOBLES!!!!!

Farking evil psychics, man........MOMMY!!!!!
2002-03-31 01:37:12 AM  
kanonball -

i can't do html because i don't know how, so cut and paste will have to do. on that site they mention 'croc' though. i think he was the evil leader
2002-03-31 01:37:52 AM  
Prinzeugen: blasphemy! Guess you are too good for only 4 frames of actually Space Ghost animation, eh?

I suppose you have something against Birdman, too?! :P
2002-03-31 01:38:04 AM  
My favorite 80s cartoons:

Legend of Zelda (Super Mario Bros.)
any Captain N episodes with Zelda and Link

Oh and I hear there's going to be a NEW He-Man cartoon coming out, just go to for more info.
2002-03-31 01:38:23 AM  
nazzerov - yeah, the cartoon with jordan, gretzky, and bo jackson. it was cool.
2002-03-31 01:38:30 AM  
Anyone remember "Tranzor Z"? It was like a generic "Voltron". "Gobots" was terrible as well- but the absolute worst was "Ulyssees of the Universe"
2002-03-31 01:38:44 AM  
Oh, and what was that show on nick a long time ago, about that castle which could travel back in time or something. Dont remember hardly ANYTHING from it, but the castle had some weird room that could either go back in time, or anyplace in the world.

2002-03-31 01:38:56 AM  
2002-03-31 01:39:04 AM  
Noozles was just plain weird, particularly how it ended.

Captain N was pretty cool, except for what it did to some of the characters, friggin green Mega man.
2002-03-31 01:39:42 AM  
God, what was the name of that horrible cartoon that I always used to see on Nickelodeon with those goofy gnomes and wolves and god-awful crappiness everytime I stayed home sick from school?
I was so pissed to see that on TV but I didn't have much choice between that and People's Court.
2002-03-31 01:40:08 AM  
Anyone remember that horrible back to the future cartoon?
2002-03-31 01:40:42 AM  
You thinking of David the Gnome, Alanzo, featuring the voice talents of Tom "Father Dowling" Bosley? I actually liked *that* cartoon when I was a kid, too...
2002-03-31 01:41:24 AM  
Does Fragle Rock count?
2002-03-31 01:42:01 AM  
i watched too many cartoons as a kid.

i'm going to bed.
2002-03-31 01:42:07 AM  
Classic: I was so young when this show was on that I only remember tiny bits and pieces way in the back of my head...For a while, I couldn't figure out if it was part of some creepy dream I had or it was something I actually witnessed on tv.
2002-03-31 01:42:26 AM  
I remember that show, Alanzo. I can't remember the name, though. It was about the Gnomes with the pointy hats, and the writters went even further and created a whole "hat tradition" involving colors for new Gnomes or something like that.

Pulsarcat: wish I could remember how the Noozles ended. It's been so long....

I'm surprised nobody dragged HETHCLIFF into this crap fest, yet.
2002-03-31 01:42:46 AM  

I could never follow the plot and I could never figure out what the hell those things were with their weird little hats and all.
Oh, to be a kid again...
2002-03-31 01:44:20 AM  
*shudders* I'm still having nightmares about Zoobilee Zoo, that parrot thingy scared the shiat outta me! Im going to have to agree with everyone here on liking the Gummi Bears though, I can till kinda remember the theme song, so it musta been good. Im surprised noone has mentioned Captain Planet (not sure when that aired) That show was cool, except for the fruity guy who had the heart power ring thingy.
2002-03-31 01:44:26 AM  
Man, if the E-N guys are reading this, they must be creaming themselves right now.
2002-03-31 01:45:36 AM  
Look aroooound yoooou
There are many thiiiings to seeeee
That some would saaaaay could never beeeee

David the Gnome was almost as insane as Maya the Bee.
2002-03-31 01:45:41 AM  
It ran in the early 90s, and was great. But then the hippie bashers came in and made the fans leave. Lousy hippie bashers, won't let us save the damn planet... pfft.
2002-03-31 01:46:34 AM  
Gummi Beaaaaaaaars!
Bouncing here and there and everywhere!
High adventure that's beyond compare!
They are the Gummi Bears!

Yeah, I actually remember that. Scary.
2002-03-31 01:46:55 AM  
Nazzerov: It turned out that the kids (I don't remember any names) father was trapped by those Kollas (not the ones the kids had) in some crystal in the Noozles dimension for some reason I can't quite remember.
2002-03-31 01:47:12 AM

Hoggish Greedly was always my favorite character. So greedy, so hog-like. He never had enough of anything!
2002-03-31 01:47:20 AM  
Soundwave980-Yeah,I know it seems that way,but those few shows are probably the only good Disney productions.The rest is just pap,in my eyes.Also,Disney wasn't in the reaming game so much in those days.
2002-03-31 01:47:39 AM  
Sampsonite:That little Indian kid was indeed a fruit. It's a good thing street-smart white kid from New York always busted in with the action and some clever quip..

"The only nuclear waste that is going to get disposed of is you, Rat-Man!"

Was his name Rat-Man? He was Rat-like. I don't remember.
2002-03-31 01:48:01 AM  
Speaking of nightmares. I think the show was called "The Great Space Coaster". YIKES! There was a guy in an elephant costume. The trunk had a handle on it's side and the guy in the costume would use his hand to grab the handle and articulate the trunk. FREAKED ME OUT everytime I saw that.....
2002-03-31 01:48:03 AM  
David the Gnome!!

Nickelodeon used to use these older french, british and canadian snippets to make Pinwheel, way back in the very early 80's. Then Eureka's Castle, Fred Penner, Elephant Show, Can't do that on television, I think they were all canadian. Nowdays PBS runs a bunch of canadian shows too...nonviolent moral shiat. All the american stuff was badguy/hero oriented, violent moral shiat.
2002-03-31 01:48:03 AM  
Pulsarcat: man, what a downer.
2002-03-31 01:48:50 AM  
how bout the Snorks?
2002-03-31 01:49:39 AM  
Ma-ti sucked, I agree, but you can't deny the feminine wiles of Gi. I'd like to report a threadjacking. Let's hope this develops into crude hentai drawings.
2002-03-31 01:50:30 AM  
I just realized that Zoobilee Zoo most likely planted the seeds for this retarded Furry shiat. Thanks a lot, Zoobilee Zoo. Real smooth.
2002-03-31 01:51:02 AM  
Eureeka's Castle, maybe?

I was born in '86, so I have very fuzzy memories of most of the really great cartoons. It's sad, these days all cartoons are boring shiat about kids at skool. Hey Arnold rocks, though. As do Invader Zim and The Fairly Oddparents, just because they're so wonderfully, crack-ODingly random. (Stealing people's organs and replaceing them with cats, toasters, etc., turning the babysitter into a glass of guava juice...Spongebob isn't bad, either)

Anyone remember Dino Riders? Damn, that show rocked. I faintly recall some other cartoon that somehow involved M.C. Hammer, some kids, and his pants...that sucked.
2002-03-31 01:51:13 AM  
I remember one episode of Captain Planet where it all came down to Ma-ti and he was the only one who could save them all and he knew he had the crappy-ass power of Heart and started crying. Then Gaia came down and told him the Heart is the most powerful of them all and he saved them all or something.

What a crock.
2002-03-31 01:51:37 AM  
Nazzerov: Yeah, though the kids probably got those kollas to free him using the power of love and understanding. Back in the 80's the power of love and understanding conquered all, which is why I'm glad I don't remember much of it.
2002-03-31 01:51:52 AM  
here's a site that sells VHS tapes of cartoons :
2002-03-31 01:52:53 AM  
Toxic Crusaders
HeMan and SheRa
Jem, truly outrageous
2002-03-31 01:53:12 AM  
Any one else think that a super hero who fought pollution probably shouldn't be someone whose one weakness was pollution?
2002-03-31 01:53:27 AM  
Nazzerov: sounds vaguely like flying house to me, a very strange bible-oriented cartoon from japan.
Ouroborus: i remember that show too, but i don't remember the name.. i think he'd turn into the car when he got hot or cold or something. i think he had a sheepdog too; i'm not sure why i remember that. i used to run around in my yard when i was about 5-6 or so pretending i was that car.

inch high private eye was a horrible cartoon. in fact, a lot of what they had on the usa cartoon express was pretty awful. i think they did gi joe reruns though, and there must have been some other good shows too, because i used to watch that a lot as a kid. i have to take exception to this guy including the gummi bears and the littles, though, both those shows rocked. here's one, though. anyone remember the little clowns of happytown? i only wish i were making that up.
2002-03-31 01:54:39 AM  
The problem I had with Captain N was the fact that they never maintained any semblence to the characters in the video game. I mean, King Hippo was blue for Christ's sake. And Megaman looked like a completely different robot. Where did these artists get their motivations?
2002-03-31 01:54:51 AM  
2002-03-31 01:56:35 AM  
Oh shiat, does anybody remember this cartoon that was somewhat related to some kind of video-game but there was this old lady named Ma who was a bad guy and it was kind of futuristic and I think all the bad people wore black and the introduction had a good cop jumping off a falling vehicle. Damn, that show sucked.
2002-03-31 01:56:42 AM  
damn, now i have all these stupid old theme songs and catch phrases stuck in my head.

Thundercats, HO!!
2002-03-31 01:58:08 AM  
To bad there are no more REAL cartoons. I saw an unedited Popeye from like 1943. Another sailor named Shorty kept getting Popeye into trouble. So Popeye killed Shorty with a handgun. Hey, he asked for it.....

Up till then my whole life had only consisted of the edited popeye cartoons. I had a very serious reality check, kind of like the one Keyano Reeves had when Morpheous gave him that pill.
2002-03-31 01:59:04 AM  
Hoosier: I remember the great space coaster, that show rocked! i don't remember the elephant's name, but there was gary gnu and baxter, some big albino clown thing. and an orang-utan, but i don't remember his name. there were some real people too.. i remember a blonde guy with curly hair and a black guy and some girl.. and they sometimes had these cartoons of a kind of stick man, like a line drew the horizon, then the shape of the guy, and back down again, and he'd walk around and stuff. it was a lot cooler than it sounds, i promise.
2002-03-31 02:00:49 AM  
was Gi the Russian chick? yeah, I'd nail her too...
Otherwise, the show pretty much sucked, but what can you really expect from a show meant to instill "eco awareness" in kids. Frankly, the crappy second GI Joe cartoon did it better with the Toxo/Sludge Vipers, and they still sucked.
2002-03-31 02:00:57 AM  
I remember one episode of Captain Planet where it all came down to Ma- ti and he was the only one who could save them all and he knew he had the crappy-ass power of Heart and started crying. Then Gaia came down and told him the Heart is the most powerful of them all and he saved them all or something.

What a crock.

Having watched that show more than once, I think I actually remember that episode. I walways thought heart was the pussiest of all the powers. Me, I'd be water.
2002-03-31 02:03:25 AM  
gi was the chinese girl. the russian girl was linka.

without looking at a single bio, i bet i can guess the average age of users on this thread.
2002-03-31 02:03:38 AM  
How come none of those kids had lightning? That'd be such a kick ass power, and you could use it for practical jokes in real life (free cans of Coke from the vending machine, at least). Yeah, that little South American kid got hosed.
2002-03-31 02:04:49 AM  
here's what i was talking about with the line cartoons on great space coaster.
2002-03-31 02:05:13 AM  
Yeah, that Russian chick was hot for a cartoon.
2002-03-31 02:05:32 AM  
Don't forget about Go-Bots. They were those crappy Transformers, before Transformers ripped off their plot line and did it right.
2002-03-31 02:06:23 AM  
without looking at a single bio, i bet i can guess the average age of users on this thread.

Heh, it's not hard to tell who the 80s kids were. Most of the best cartoons outside of Bugs Bunny and the like come from the 80s and early 90s.
2002-03-31 02:06:42 AM  
It frightens me a little that you'd know that Stubblyhead, but it also frightens me that I'd almost say get'em both and get the three-way together. Though the pre-adolescent in me would rather have Lady Jaye from GI Joe (I know, you guys'll say she's butch, but I've always had a thing for the brunettes). Anyone else have their first crush on some cartoon chick?
2002-03-31 02:07:34 AM

2002-03-31 02:11:42 AM  
What about "The Attack of the Rotten Killer Tomatoes"?? (or something like that).. that cartoon sucked ass...
2002-03-31 02:12:15 AM  
i remember things like that, yet i can never find my keys.

"Did you ever find Bugs Bunny attractive when he put on a dress and played girl bunny?"
2002-03-31 02:13:09 AM  
I got so pissed when I got the Picture Page pen and it didn't make the cool noises. I loathe Bill Cosby to this day!
2002-03-31 02:14:33 AM  
The Attack of the Rotten Killer Tomatoes sucked from the get-go. Everytime I heard that lameass introduction song I changed the clicker, double-time.
2002-03-31 02:18:44 AM  
I was actually a big fan of Captain N back in the day. For a 30 minute Nintendo ad it was pretty good.

I also liked Pinwheel, which was a great show, and it had the boy named Simon who drew drawings. That show had some great cartoons. But it did rip off Sesame Street. You had Plus and Minus, two brothers who were your Ernie and Bert. YOu had a green unpleasant guy named Ebeneezer, like Oscar the Grouch, and there was this bird that no one could prove existed, like Snuffuluphugus (before they decided to have everyone know about him.)
2002-03-31 02:19:48 AM  
Even worse then guys having crushes on cartoon girls, I know I've had some on video game guys before...

Like Magus from Chrono Trigger. The picture on the status page showed him as being really ugly, but I always pictured him as more of a bishounen =)

And Sephiroth...and Kuja...I mean, there aren't many people with the will and initiative to try to take over the world, and even fewer with the guts to do it in a thong.

Dahne, very glad right now of the anonymity of the 'net.
2002-03-31 02:20:25 AM  
And I remember Pinwheel being on for several hours each day. It was before Nick Jr, and they just aired it all morning to fill time.
2002-03-31 02:21:58 AM  
ouroborus & stubblyhead: turbo teen
2002-03-31 02:23:33 AM  
you're not alone, Dahne... SA had an awful link of the day a while back of a bunch of erotic fan fiction about sephiroth. the exerpts he provided were enough to make me not go to read more.
2002-03-31 02:24:38 AM  
I thought Simon was on another show......The 1980s version of Romper Room, Jeebus W. Chripes! I need a life.........I'll trade in a can of beer!
2002-03-31 02:24:58 AM  
Actually, I know a few girls that have crushes on anime guys (though really, they're pretty femmy if you ask me). Never could get into anime chicks myself (damn Minme is too little girl-like, and annoying to boot, ugh!). I'd rather my women with something close to real life anatomical proportions, thank you.
2002-03-31 02:26:03 AM  
Ack, I'm not quite THAT bad, Stubblyhead =)

I tend to get up to warm-and-fuzzy and stop there.
2002-03-31 02:28:47 AM  
oh yeah, i forgot to mention, Dahne, the stories were by a guy and written in a MM perspective. so maybe you're the only woman who develops crushes on video game characters after all. ;-)
2002-03-31 02:29:02 AM  
Ah yes, Turbo Teen, playing on the weird fixation kids had with talking cars back int the day. I remember wishing I could morph into a red sportscar too, but I also wanted to be Optimus Prime (or maybe Starscream, before getting disintegrated in the movie). Could never figure out how a kid got a kickass ride like that though... Anyone else think this was an odd ripoff of Knight Rider back in the day too?
2002-03-31 02:29:25 AM  
I never got turned on by Bugs Bunny in a dress. The only gay turn on I may have had was when Tom the cat dressed up as a female mouse. He had a real sexy walk and a very attractive figure........
2002-03-31 02:30:13 AM  
WAIT, Tom the cat dressed up as a female groundhog! OOps.
2002-03-31 02:30:31 AM  
Hey, it's at least nice to know that there are some women out there that spent their time playing Nintendo, as well. :)

Chrono Trigger was a cool game, although a friend of mine had it, so I didn't play it a whole lot.
2002-03-31 02:31:15 AM  
thanks for posting that link, Meat, that site has all kinds of bad memories on it.
2002-03-31 02:32:41 AM  
hmm, sounds like a Tex Avery job to me, Hoosier.
2002-03-31 02:33:02 AM  
Nazzerov- The one with the castle, was it Count Duckula?

Alanzo- Were you talking about C.O.P.S.?

I think back when I was a child was one of the best periods for cartoons. I mean, sure, they were stupid, but I don't think they insulted a kid's intelligence like a lot of stuff today does.

Of course, I loved Transformers and G.I. Joe. MASK was awesome, and had some of the coolest toys ever. He-Man was another favorite. Used to love Galaxy High, Mysterious Cities of Gold, Duck Tales, Dinosaucers, Thundercats, etc.

I also miss old Nickelodean. Yeah, Pinwheel seemed like it was on for HOURS. Then you had Today's Special with the mannaquin with the beret, and stuff like Mr. Wizard, Out of Control, Turkey Television, and the god of shows, You Can't Do That on Television. The day we get a DVD YCDTOT collection is the day that life is complete.
2002-03-31 02:33:32 AM  
My first crush was the damn Princess from Voltron. To this day I still have a thing for British chicks..
2002-03-31 02:36:27 AM  
Hey Shidoshi, where did ya get that YCDTOTV DVD?
2002-03-31 02:36:59 AM  
stubblyhead: my pleasure

crotchrocket: the little synopsis implied that he was a racecar driver i think... or something. maybe he had rich parents. what i want to know is how do young, supposedly poor characters in road trip movies always end up driving mint condition 1950s convertibles?
2002-03-31 02:45:06 AM  
There was some decent live action stuff too:


Its time for the Electic Company!
2002-03-31 02:45:21 AM  
ok, does anyone remember marshall bravestar? it's not listed in that yesterdayland site, and it's not in imdb either... it was kind of a rehash of the old west but in the future on another planet. he had a robot horse, and there was some annoying gopherish thing. anyone?
2002-03-31 02:48:57 AM  
I think I remember that one Stubblyhead, though vaguely. Didn't like the towns transform into fortifications, and his cybernetic horse could walk upright and fire guns and stuff when it was time to throw down?

I think I remember an episode from that too. Something to do with Sherlock Holmes reappearing in the future. Of course, that's a real common theme in cartoons (I remember the Real Ghostbusters sort of doing that too) for some reason, and I've never been able to figure out why.
2002-03-31 02:51:14 AM  

My hero.

[image from too old to be available]

2002-03-31 02:58:47 AM  
i don't remember about the town doing weird stuff, but the horse could walk upright and had a bigass shotgun. i think the horse's name was thirty-thirty. the marshall guy could also temporarily gain the strengths of animals, like a bear's strength or a hawk's vision.
2002-03-31 02:59:39 AM  
Ouroborus: there was turbo-teen (allready posted by meat) and pole position where the guy and girl both turned into cars
2002-03-31 03:01:58 AM  
people didn't turn into cars in pole position, the cars could just talk. they had a computer thing in them, kind of like a classic mac with a face on it. don't remember much else about the show, though.
2002-03-31 03:03:34 AM  
there was one i liked that was clearly just a toy ad, but it involved these people with these weird trucks, looking for this old dude. the leader of the little team or whatever was the son of the dude in question, and they had a little girl who was half plant or some shiat so she could talk to plants. somehow this was good, because their enemies were plants. but they weren't just plants, they were plants that were fused with trucks for some reason. the toys were sort of interchangeable or something. like centurions. what the hell was the deal with the centurions, anyway?
2002-03-31 03:04:32 AM  
I also remember having a thing for the chick from Pole Position, now that you guys bring that show up. Damn, I was a little sexual tyrranosaurus!
2002-03-31 03:04:34 AM  
Anyone remember a show called Saber riders and the star sheriffs??
I can remember so little of it, though that marshall bravestar sounds a lot like it, so maybe I'm thinking of that.
2002-03-31 03:06:16 AM  
Gummi bears, rescue rangers, talespin, and DUCKTALES are great by today's standards.. Take a look at most of the so-called 'saturday morning cartoons nowdays.. mostly watered-down, censored anime and power-rangers spinoffs.. I don't even wanna know what a discussion like this one would be like in 10 years..
2002-03-31 03:07:30 AM  
Crotchrocket Slim: Hell, there's a whole show based on Sherlock Holmes being revived in the future to fight his a clone arch nemisis (proffessor Morati, don't know how it's spelt).
2002-03-31 03:10:01 AM  
I knew a kid in high school whos sister had a baby, damn thing looked just like a farking "monchichi". funny thing is, she still does look like one.
2002-03-31 03:13:19 AM  
Meat: That was Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors, I think. that show totally ruled, but i don't really remember too much about it unfortunately.
2002-03-31 03:14:16 AM  
i think all little babies look like monchichies, don't they? except the ones that look like those troll dolls.
2002-03-31 03:14:31 AM  
Yeah, I think I tried to watch that one Pulsarcat, but after seeing that it was a load of crap, I went back to sleep. Damn contemporary cartoons.

One quick thing about BraveStarr: anyone else think it was kinda cool that he was like Native American or Mexican or whatever, and was the hero? Too bad it didn't do so hot, it sounded fairly progressive.
2002-03-31 03:15:25 AM  
It won't be long before Hollywood starts making live action movies of all those bad 80's cartoons.....

The Gary Coleman Show

Worst.... Cartoon....... Ever......
2002-03-31 03:16:15 AM  
Grape ape, grape ape...

Anyone remember the Hair Bear Bunch? Bunch of bears with afros? ...ringing any bells?
2002-03-31 03:18:49 AM  
stubblyhead: that's the one. i always think it's "jason and the something something", and then my brain automatically inserts "argonauts", but then i'm like, "no, dumbass, that's that greek myth thing. this was a cartoon." and then my brain's all, "fine, then. see if i'm gonna remember that shiat for you." and i'm like, "no, baby. i didn't mean it like that!" but by that point my brain has locked itself in the bathroom and it's on the phone biatching to it's brainfriends about what an asshole i am, so i just watch some tv and wait for it to blow over.
2002-03-31 03:20:41 AM  
Ok, I'll say one thing about the 80's, it had a lot of crappy shows, but at least networks aired shows that had some originality, now it's all about, saturday mornings now are like three episodes of Digimon and some really lame "hip" transformers.

Any one see that new transformers cartoon? It's pure crap, I mean being a bad show is bad enough, but when it stars Optimus Prime it really hurts.

2002-03-31 03:23:13 AM  
I saw this sweet looking CGI gijoe clip on TV, and I hoped to god that it was a promo for a new movie to enstill more patriotic jingoism in children post-9/11. Too bad it was just a farking commercial.
2002-03-31 03:23:44 AM  
Meat: That's why I don't have a brain, too high maintenance for my taste...........Wait a minute
2002-03-31 03:24:41 AM  
This thread needs MrT.

I never stop getting a kick from this.
2002-03-31 03:24:48 AM  
that's photoshopped, right? it didn't actually exist, did it, hoosier?
2002-03-31 03:25:16 AM  
Hoosier: Holy shiat, I remember that too, it had Hulk like animation I think.

AndrewFish: I swear I wept after seeing that, seriously wept.
2002-03-31 03:26:20 AM  
Just the same AndrewFish, if they tried GI Joe now, they'd totally destroy it- no cartoon could get away with half the stuff today that they could when we were kids, especially with all that stuff about terrorists.
2002-03-31 03:27:41 AM  
Star Trek the animated series was real.
2002-03-31 03:27:57 AM  
Crotchrocket Slim: yeah, and it would teach our kids that guns can't hit them, and missles wait in till you jump out before blowing up your tank.
2002-03-31 03:32:29 AM  
Angry Inch, I'm glad I violated my own rule and clicked that link- the T'inator rules! Nothing like your own posts translated into Mr. T jibba jabba!!!
2002-03-31 03:32:49 AM  
dude, what's to get away with? they never even killed anybody. they never even managed to capture people who jettisoned or whatever from their jets right over their own god damn base.
2002-03-31 03:33:21 AM  
2002-03-31 03:33:48 AM  
But still, that reminds me of the Mr. T cartoon... that ruled!!! Best themesong ever!!!! Anyone remember the SNL Smeigel parody of it?
2002-03-31 03:35:11 AM  
I was wondering how you were gonna handle this Crotchrocket. I gotta keep ya clickin so I can get you with the old women pr0n next time. :0
2002-03-31 03:39:11 AM  
Duffy: Rocket Punch! Tranzor Z rocked. I love how they hid him in a swimming pool. Musta been hell on the maintenance staff... :-)

I remember liking Turbo Teen, but I didn't see it much. I also liked The Littles, thank you very much! Hmmmph!

Anybody remember Silverhawks? EVERYTHING was called 'space' this or 'limbo' that. Kinda annoying, even to a 10-year-old. The Limbo Limo was cool. hehe. Just a convertible Cadillac with no tires flying through space.

Of course, nothing beats Thundercats. I had a crush on Cheetara back then. Sigh. To be 10 again....
2002-03-31 03:40:02 AM  
I don't know Meat, I remember those BATs being kinda scary, and Sgt. Slaughter getting quite physical with all those cannon fodder vipers. And with all the recent stuff on creationism in the schools, you can bet they'd never clone Serpentor, and Cobra-La is out (though that might be a good thing). Definately no more stereotypes of foreigners (which all the Cobras were), or American ones (which all the Joes were). They'd PC it to complete death, that's my point.

I can't wait to see what the T'inator does to this post Angry Inch!
2002-03-31 03:40:21 AM  
I don't recall Rubik, but from the looks of it, I'm glad I don't remember it. *shudder*
2002-03-31 03:41:15 AM  
...Rubik the Amazing Cube was ground breaking in so much as it was one of the first if not the first cartoons to feature an entirely hispanic lineup. hell, even Menudo sang the theme song.

and another Truly Outrageous! classic:

2002-03-31 03:41:49 AM  
Wow, no one mentioned Strawberry Shortcake, The Care Bears or My little Pony. My sisters favorites.
2002-03-31 03:42:10 AM  
The Mr. T Show rocked. I don't think I could stomach it now, though. Remember that little white boy with the jacket who wanted to be bad like T? Always talked with that bad Mr. T impression?
2002-03-31 03:43:24 AM  

These are some titles to old popeye episodes. It pisses me off that the "the greatest generation" grew up watching this stuff. It's these so called "normal" baby boomers who changed all the cartoons into pussified care bear fluff and shiat.
2002-03-31 03:43:35 AM  
Rick Moranis had his own Saturday morning cartoon. He played the only human teacher at a monster (literally) high school. There there was Galaxy High, about a futuristic high school in space, and the two new human students.
2002-03-31 03:45:16 AM  
What came first? Sgt. Slaughter the wrester or the cartoon character?
2002-03-31 03:46:00 AM  
"One, two, three, four!
Denver, the Last Dinosaur,
He's my friend and a whole lot more!"

Ugg. You can keep that one. I prefer:

"We're Cold Slither! You'll be joining us soon!
A band of vipers playin' a tune!"

I always wanted a video of that song. :-)
2002-03-31 03:47:05 AM  
removing the dust off my mind that the beer hasn't washed away i'd have to say that fighting my lil sis for the remote to avoid having to watch "my little pony" or "strawberry shortcake" should put them at the top of the list.

$1.50 ptchers seems to have erased the shift key from my puter
2002-03-31 03:48:24 AM  
Hoosier: the wrestler I believe, though the cartoon was so unlike the man that you might as well treat them as separate characters (the wrestler voiced the cartoon, however). In real life, Slaughter's fat and balding, and in the cartoon he was ripped and had a full head of hair. Still, he tore through those Crimson Guards bare-handed like a knife though butter.
2002-03-31 03:49:15 AM  
Ponda: Is that 'Gem and the Holograms'?
2002-03-31 03:51:29 AM  
Soporific: Rick Moranis was in that? I watched that show, but I don't remember him. I probably didn't know who he was then. Wasn't the bully's name 'Beef'?
2002-03-31 03:53:35 AM  
Ah, Pound Puppies. The original beanie babies....
2002-03-31 03:55:18 AM

yep...follow the link for more Jem goodness!
2002-03-31 03:56:55 AM  
Well, this has been great, but I'm turning in now. If I can't get a hold of Lady Jaye, I'm calling dibs on the Asian Hologram with blue hair. Later you Farkers.
2002-03-31 04:00:56 AM  
I never really understood the deal with Casper. What's so entertaining about a dead child. When Casper was alive he must have been evil because when he died he didn't go to heaven, instead he has to spend eternity among the living.

I wonder how Casper died? His parents are never mentioned, either alive or dead, in the cartoon. I bet Casper killed his parents and then was caught and hung by a lynch mob.......
2002-03-31 04:03:49 AM  
I do not know when it was, but I remember at some point watching cartoons such as spider-man, transformers, and Dragonball. Since I watched cartoons regularly untill it saturday morning began being flooded with swill, they may all be distant or recent. I loved all of those shows. Spiderman is cool in almost any content, Transformers brought me back into the light of giant robot worship (a guarden of eden which I almost fled, after watching Gobots a few too many times), and Dragonball was funny, and exciting to watch. (I won't touch Dragonball Z, as it has an avid following of lovers and haters that live for screaming loudly about it, I'll just say that it may be better drawn, but is a step down).

I also remember watching the Disney cartoons like Darkwing duck, Ducktails, and The Rescue Rangers, and the Gummi Bears back in my more innocent years. All of them taught me a valuble lesson on the attack power of suction cups and plungers, and how humans totally suck when compared to humanoid animals.

But one cartoon that I don't see mentioned is Mighty Max.

I loved the show. Once you get past the name, you see a real gem. It was well drawn, and had a very involved plot, that developed through their daily adventures all over the world. The magic cap was a little weird (since it was thousands of years old, it left the question "Why the hell does it look like a modern day cap?" wide open) but it still... It taught me about mythology, to a degree, explained the dangers of computer nerds (CyberSkull), and taught us that all the great heros in mythology (from Thor, to Hercelies, to Lancelot) are all one guy named Norman.

For those who don't know, it was about a blond kid named max who seemed to have a slight myth fettish (or at least an ancient symbol dictonary around) that while digging for christmans presents, found a statue of a robed chicken sitting on a throne. After translating the symbols, he was so shocked he dropped it and broke it, revealing a norman red cap. He put it on... and the rest is history. Max was aided by an all-knowing chicken monk, and a Norse barbarian who was thousands of years old. The episodes involved them saving the world from various evils, with Vergil carefully placing "summons" for Max, directing him to a portal that led to the spot of the danger. Vergil, being all-knowing, prepared most of the summons years, if not decades in advance, from notes, to words spelled out by building lights, only readable from a bird's eye view out of an airplain. The enemies were creations of evil geniuses, ancient gods and demons, and the like. Some episodes revealed more of Norman's past, as he met his old enemies (from a horrible murdering mutant with a lock on his face to keep his voice weapon in check, to the Doom Dragon he fought as Thor), or Skullmaster, a huge, ugly, evil, ex student of Vergil who became drunk on power, and wished to rule the world, using the power of The Cap. Max was suppose to defeat him in hand to hand combat a long time ago (in his past life, when he was a pretty bad-ass looking warrior) but died trapping skullmaster in the center of the earth, other then killing him, and Skullmaster beign about 8 feet tall, and Max a small kid, ment fulfilling the prophecy wouldn't be easy.

What was one of the things I liked was that it ended. It developed to a climax, and at the very end, finished it just like it was said it would. It even showcasted every villan to appear in the series in the final episodes (most didn't do much though). The ending made me sad though... Watching Norman devoured by a giant spider brought a tear to my eye...

I'm not sure why so few saw that show, but it was one of the few good cartoons I remember. I wish it came into reruns soon... Crap like Batman Beyond, Godzilla the series, Pokemon, and the angular, ugly crap Disney is crapping out by the truck-load makes me sad inside. Yes, I am now turning to Anime for quality cartoons. Anime got better-looking with age, while american cartoons are uglier then they use to be.
2002-03-31 04:12:46 AM  
Does anyone remember ROCKET ROBIN HOOD? It was like Robin Hood but, well, set in the future. With rockets.
It was soooo crappy; like the animators drew two pics, and flipped between them. So Friar Tuck is eating like a pig, right? And we see: drumstick on plate...drumsick in mouth...drumstick on plate...drumstick in mouth. You know what I mean?
So it sucked but I was into it anyway. I might PAY for my cable if Rocket Robin Hood was still on.
2002-03-31 04:15:04 AM  
I just realized how damn long my post was... What can I say.... the memories overwhelm me...

When Jackie Chan gets his own cartoon, you know it's time to think back to the old shows, and forget the new ones.
2002-03-31 04:15:13 AM  
TheRapy: Yeah, mighty max was pretty cool, don't know if I saw the last episode (would've rememebered Normans death)
The only similar episode I remember is where they went down to fight the main bad guy with a whole bunch of other heros (all of which died I think)
2002-03-31 04:16:33 AM  
Oh, the few new shows I like would have to be Jackie chan adventures and Batman Beyond, both are good.
2002-03-31 04:19:01 AM  
"I want the Ball!" What about which was the worst saturday am PSA we had to sit through to see our favorite poorly animated comercial advertisment

"How a bill becomes a law" - is my vote

But then I still can't get the cartoon Tootise roll cartoon out of my head
2002-03-31 04:20:25 AM  
Anyone remember Spartakus and the Sun Beneath the Sea or something? And what the hell was the other one I was going to mention...

Oh yeah.

[image from too old to be available]

GOD I hated this cartoon. All I remember is that we had only one episode on tape and I saw/heard it all the time, and there was some part where someone mentioned space (as in outer space) and Thundarr goes "Spaaaaace? What is spaaaaace?" in the most retarded retard voice you can imagine and I HATED HIM. He's just this big stupid guy with a light saber who never opened his mouth except to confirm his complete idiocy, or to exclaim "Great Lords of Light!" or something whenever he fell victim to the most obvious traps, which he then got out of by swinging his sword around a whole bunch. HATED him. It was the worst cartoon ever.

And check this out, here is the episode guide. If Thundarr the Barbarian sounds like something straight off a 13-year-old's first D&D character sheet, the episode names will knock the farking shiat out of you. Start to finish, it honestly reads like a Brunching Brain-Numbingly-Stupid-Episode-Title Random Generator.
"Harvest of Doom"?
"Challenge of the Wizards"?
"Last Train to Doomsday"?? farkING LAST TRAIN TO farkING DOOMSDAY?!

2002-03-31 04:25:18 AM  
Pulsarcat, that episode was about half-way in the series. It was one of the defining points. There were alot of episodes in it as I recall. It began by revealing how the first Max died (souless sea zombies. Probobly the most unimpressive looking of all enemies, but the strongest) and ended with Skullmaster loosing the crystal, but getting Freedom. Those episodes were some of the best... huge armies of monsters, heros (yes, all of em died, even Norman's ex love), some revealing of Skullmaster's past, and a giant robot. That series of episodes was the best of the whole series.... humm, I wonder if I can get them on vidio

The ending involved Skullmaster re-making the crystal of souls, and going on the war path. It had all the previous monsters return, under Skullmasters power, and also involved a fight scene between Mages and that big gargoile looking robot. It got a tiny bit corny when they kept running from monster after monster and from portal to portal, but when they met the giant spider again that Norman took on one on one to buy them time to escape, it stopped being corny in the least. Almost everyone died at the end. Norman, Vergil, Skullmaster's mutant cronie, even Lavalord.

(Once again, memories... No one get me started on any other show, I have insomnia, and can rant for a loooong time)
2002-03-31 04:28:58 AM  
Meh. And Jackie Chan and Batman Beyond just look too poorly drawn. Jackie Chan isn't THAT bad (I just don't like the whole consept), But Batman beyond is a huge rippoff... They had a fantastic four carbon copy in one episode, of (insert diety name here)'s sake!!

Also, the radiactive guy fuels my suspicion that cartoon creators are reading my brainwaves. This isn't the first time I saw one of my childhood fantasy characters appear on a show...

Adm_crunch: The bully Beef was in Galaxy High. Rich Moranis was not in that one. He was in another high school cartoon where he was in monster-ville (something like that) and taught high school to a bunch of monster kids.

2002-03-31 06:07:15 AM  
TheRapy: okay thanks, yeah, they stop airing the series shortly after the episode where the all the non main heros died, so just assumed they never made another season.

Vergil died? that bird guy? how'd that happen?

Jackie Chan adventures is better if you don't focus on the real Jackie Chan but instead focus on Uncle.

Robotech was another old show that was good, though, by the time I got a channel that it aired on it was taken off.
2002-03-31 06:20:20 AM  
LOL at Hoosier

I think it was G Force when screened here. I would skip school and watch Galactors lameass plans fail. Great times, great times...
2002-03-31 06:20:41 AM  
Oh, wait, didn't it end with Max being sent back to before it all started but with the memories of what happened?
Okay, I did see the final episode.

The only bad thing about remembering these shows is I now wanna see them again, but the only way to do that is to hunt them down and buy the tapes, ugh.
2002-03-31 06:33:34 AM  
Hmmmmm, if you put Thundarr the barbarian in an anagram creator you get

hmmmmm, no clue what it means, but it does suck like the show.

if you put Pulsarcat in you get


2002-03-31 06:55:18 AM  
Toons in the 60's were awesome. I was born wayyyyyyy back in '59 so I got to trip out to many drug-inspired psychedelic cartoons.

I swear. Alot of the toons back in the mid to late 60's had a real hippies theme going. Sitar music, flowing neon colors, lots and lots of fast motion with sudden interjections of slo-mo. You just knew these people were making this stuff while dropping acid. Hardly any of it made sense.

The Banana Splits embodied this. If you ever get a chance to see this show, do it. Ahhhh the 60's.
2002-03-31 07:15:03 AM  
Jeebus, how old are some of you people? Like, ten?

Thank God for Bigpeeler and Hoosier, so that I'm not the only one whose Saturday mornings revolved around Sid and Marty Krofft and Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids.

For the rest of you: did you know that Josie and the Pussycats was a cartoon before it was a movie?
2002-03-31 07:26:32 AM  
NewsTalk: .......I'm hoping sarcasm

And yes, I've seen the Josie and the Pussycats cartoon, that back in the days of cartoons having laugh tracks.

Cartoon wise, Canada sucked back then (at least this part of Canada) the only good shows came on American channels, but I do remember some channel that had something like the Cartoon express (no clue which cartoons were on which station though) and such, so I was able to grow up with the ninja turtles and transformers.

What about the D&D cartoons and the horror cartoon The Inhumanoids tht show was totally farked up.

I remember most of htise, and scarily rememebr Gummibears alot. I used to watch Transformer and He-man and Ghostbusters the most though.
2002-03-31 09:34:27 AM  
Ya know, I think I'm the only person who absolutely hated Land of the Lost. My husband thinks it's weird that I still have such a negative reaction to a show when I can't remember anything about it except how crappy it looked. (he loved that show, by the way)

I liked the classics, Road Runner, Bugs Bunny and so on. I remember that there was an Emergency One! cartoon that I loved. Of course there was Zoom (That's Zoom Zee Double Oh Em, Box 350, Boston, Mass 02134. Send it to Zoom!) and Schoolhouse Rock (how we all learned the Preamble). I liked 3-2-1 Contact and The Tomorrow People, too. Damn, I've always been a geek.
2002-03-31 09:46:32 AM  
Oh crap! I forgot about Speed Buggy and Devlin and Jabberjaw (yeah, that one was pretty terrible actually)!

Damnit I want to be 5 again. I'm having strange flashbacks of things like Dynomutt and Animalympics. Wondertwin powers ACTIVATE! AHHH!!!!! Schmoo!
2002-03-31 10:05:22 AM  
did anyone else watch Belle and Sebastian on Nick? None of my friends have heard of it, I had to show them some websites just to prove it existed.
2002-03-31 10:19:45 AM  
speaking of talking car, man that was a craze in the early 80's. I dont think any car today has voice warnings unless its the car alarm. I have 86 dodge lancer that has that crap. your door is a its no its a door, lol , your lights are on! your fuel is low. I might take the voice box out of it and put in it in my intrepid
2002-03-31 10:42:16 AM  
Incognito, I do remember Belle and Sebastion. It was one of those cartoons that had a continuing storyline, and I think it came from Europe. Everyone was after Belle, thinking her a monster, and Sebastion was on a quest to find his mother.

Another great series was the Cities of Gold, which took place in the 1700's, I think, and it was about a search for the legendary cities of gold in central and south America.

Then there was a weird series called Spartacus, about a journey to the center of the earth to save a sun that existed in the earth.

All these cartoons had a continuing storyline and you had to watch them all in order to really know what was going on. Good stuff.
2002-03-31 10:43:09 AM  
two words ..

Battle of the mo'pharkin Planets

also anyone remember the crazy assed show called Zoom
not a carton, but my older sister used to make me watch it al the time .I still hate her
2002-03-31 10:46:52 AM  
some of these i rememeber, some not so much... limited channels where i'm from.
there was some cartoon i saw once as a child, only once and i couldn't find it again, somewhere around 1985...but it looked old to me at the time. it had music that reminds me of the dawning of the age of aqaurius, it had peopl who i think were going back in time and tryng to save something, lots of purple... probably nobody knows what i'm talking about. i looked for it again, but never found it.
who remembers that horrible hercules cartoon? ("hey herk, hey herk!") and that badly animated wixard of oz where all the people were basically heads with arms and legs? the song :
oh the land of oz is a funny funny place where everyone wears a funny funny face and the strees are paved with gold. and no one evers grows old in that happy land lives the wizard of oz!
2002-03-31 10:49:04 AM  
soporific: tell me more about spartacus, sparking memories... could it be the purple age of aquarius music cartoon? the sun in the earth sounds familiar, maybe i am out to lunch... when did this cartoon happen?

2002-03-31 11:11:50 AM  
Belle and Sebastian was was originally produced in Japan I think, but it was based on a live action British series.

It had the big white dog and the boy who was abandoned by his parents in the French mountains or something right?

If you really want to re-live your childhood just go to That's where I used to spend most of my time.
2002-03-31 11:19:12 AM  
Oh man... Great cartoons. Makes me wish I'd remembered about these cartoons when various filesharing programs were still up and running. I managed to get the entire run of the D&D cartoon on my PC,. Yeah it's kinda freaky, but oh well.

Imunhamoids ruled. They had that plant looking monster thing and the head bad guy who lived in a pool of lava. 'Course I can't remember any names now but ah well.

Side note: Anyone remember the Thundercats movie? Watching it now fails to have the same effect as when I saw it years ago.


Sword of Omens, give me sight beyond sight.
2002-03-31 11:21:24 AM  
Oh gawds the memories...
Can anyone else remember a cartoon(from the early 80's I think) that had a bunch of teen monsters,like teen dracula,teen frankenstein,ect...
the vague memory of that cartoon has bugged me for years.

blech,land of the lost,there's an irritating memory I didn't need.

Now that you've got me thinking of shat from WAY back in the day, does anyone remember "The Big Blue Marble" or "The New Zoo Revue?" Both shows were made in the late 60's/early 70's I think and they were supposed to be multi-cultural and expose kids to the world.

Nothing beat seeing Henrietta, the fatazz hippo-woman on New Zoo Revue, make tacos, rice and beans as they explored "Mexican culture." I'm sure that, come Black History Month, they fried up some chicken to pay homage to the struggles of black people.

Hilarious House of Frightenstein.

Best show ever. Period.
2002-03-31 12:45:19 PM  
Zoobilee Zoo used to be one of my favourite cartoons!

Does anyone remember the short-lived Cadillacs and Dinosaurs? Sure, this wasn't from the 80s, but good god it was baaaad!
2002-03-31 12:48:37 PM  
Anyone remember C.O.P.S.?
About some sheriff in the future with a cybernetic chest or something. I also seem to remember a cybernetic dog and a guy with machine guns in his chest. That show and TMNT had me set as far as cartoons.
2002-03-31 12:52:18 PM  
Ok, I've got to dive in with a question.

I haven't been able to remember the name of this one for years, but does anybody remember the one with the five pollution fighters and their unicycles?

I have the hasiest memories of this one, but if I remember right, it took place in the future. Pollution (or something dark and sinister like it) had taken most over most of the world. There were regular people left, but they couldn't enter the polluted environment. There were, however, 5 special suits that could be worn by our heroes. They would dawn their suits and hop on unicycles the fight the forces of evil. The last kick, the leader hand a huge unicycle and sat in the middle of the wheel.

Boy do I hope somebody here remembers the name of that thing!
2002-03-31 01:01:17 PM

2002-03-31 01:08:48 PM  
Hoosier: I remember the great space coaster, that show rocked! i don't remember the elephant's name, but there was gary gnu and baxter, some big albino clown thing. and an orang-utan, but i don't remember his name. there were some real people too.. i remember a blonde guy with curly hair and a black guy and some girl.. and they sometimes had these cartoons of a kind of stick man, like a line drew the horizon, then the shape of the guy, and back down again, and he'd walk around and stuff. it was a lot cooler than it sounds, i promise.

I used to watch that before school in the 2nd grade! The blond was Danny, the brunette Fran, and the black guy Roy. And I loved that cartoon you're talking about...that funny guy that's drawn in white and gets pissed off every now and again and speaks pig Latin--that was always my favorite part! LOL

Now who dissed the Back to the Future cartoon? I loved it! But that was a 90s cartoon, not 80s.
2002-03-31 01:17:39 PM  
Anyone remember Tranzor Z's sidekick female robot Aphrodite? Her Boobies would turn into missiles and launch off of her chest and then new ones would reappear. Somehow this seemed completely normal to me at the time.

robertl- That show you described was "Spiral Zone", it was a cool show.
2002-03-31 01:37:31 PM  
Fish: It was on Nickelodeon in the mid to late 80's. It involved people who lived in the center of the earth, and I think that they were from Atlantis. Anyway, they had a sun, but it was going out. And the people had no feet. But they created this girl who did have feet, and this girl was sent out to find people to help, and Spartacus was one of those people, and he had this armband weapon. There were two kids from the surface who fell into the adventure, and they all traveled in a sentient ship that thought it was more intelligent than all of them and never ceased to point it out. They were constantly hounded by these pirates, and I remember the pirates always sang a song. (Boy, I remember a lot about this show.)

I even remember that some band, in 1986, did a pop remix of the theme song, and you could enter a contest and win the free record single. That's right, they still had record singles, you know, those things you played on a record player. Ah, the memories.
2002-03-31 01:40:18 PM  
i remember that show too, soporific. there were these two duck looking things too, right? i remember thinking they must have been made of cheese or something, too. i think it came on right before or right after the mysterious cities of gold, which i really loved. old nickelodeon was awesome.

2002-03-31 02:16:41 PM  
Has anybody noticed how many of those cartoons featured two opposing groups battling for no other significant reason than to have control over territory/turf, and that both sides felt they were doing what was right for them.

Then move along and realize how many inner-city latchkey kids were kept indoors at this time, being force-fed said cartoons as an alternate to parental rearing.
Thus leading the kids headlong into seeking out real-life examples of the only paradigm they had ever witnessed.

Yes, let the truth be known, the inner-city gang explosion of the early 90s, late 80s is a direct result of allegedly harmless cartoons, like Thundercats.

and you don't even want me to get started on the effect video games had..
2002-03-31 02:22:00 PM  
"But Batman beyond is a huge rippoff... They had a fantastic four carbon copy in one episode, of (insert diety name here)'s sake!!"

It's called "Archetyping," and it's a common practice in comic books today. F'rinstace:

- Marvel makes FF.
- FF become pretty universally known.
- Marvel never uses FF for anything cool, because change/conflict = bad news, in their minds.
- Along comes Astro City, Powers, et al, who take the superhero cliches we know (Superman, Batman, the FF) and messes with them.

In the Batman Beyond episode, the FF schtick was a cover-up for the fact that the heroes in question were the result of a murder attempt. Plus, they were going nuts. It was a good episode.
2002-03-31 02:57:21 PM  
soporific, i remember records. some grown up friend of my parents gave me my own record player from fisher price. i had an orphan annie record i listened to all the time. and the pink panther's christmas album... those were the days...
anyway, thanks muchly. i will check out this spartacus thing. it sounds like that might be it... we didn't have nickelodean or however its spelled, but we used to get those free channels for two weeks see if ya wanna buy it type of things, so i might have seen it there. wow, thats been haunting me for about 17 years... i feel like a caller on the hum line...
2002-03-31 02:58:20 PM  
halpas -- Thanks for the name! I can't believe this thing was made in 1987. I thought it was much older than than. That means I was watching this thing while I was 15!

Man, I can't believe I went from "Spiral Zone" to crashing Chryslers in one shore year!
2002-03-31 02:58:36 PM  
I'd just like to say that Thundarr the Barbarian was really cool. It was a saturday morning cartoon that showed the end of modern civilization in the opening credits... which is pretty heavy for the kiddies waiting for the smurfs to come on. Plus, some of the stories were actually very well written. The voice acting sucked, but that was standard in most 80's cartoons.
<...and that Ariel! Mmmmm, what a delicious piece that would be>
2002-03-31 02:59:00 PM  
The cartoon with the rick moranis voice work was called "Gravedale High"
2002-03-31 03:52:53 PM  
Robotech rocked, except it got progressively worse with each new spin-off or continuation (like the one after the original robotech/macross about Max's daughter and some shiatty hovertanks, and the one after that about motorcycle riders whose motorcycles could break apart and reform around their body). I saw every episode of that series, and if it were still on I would continue watching it. Last time I saw it on was a few years back, on Cartoon Network.

Sailor Moon... what can I say? I've seen every episode (even the non Americanized ones) even though I pretty much hated the show when I began watching it since there was nothing on. Now it's just another part of my life which I try to hide from myself. Reminds me of those 1960s propaganda videos -- you know the ones. "This is John. John likes to dress up in womens clothing..."
2002-03-31 03:55:15 PM  
In Thundarr, earth got hit by this massive comet or something like that in 1994. Made it even more fun to watch re-runs in 1996.

The year 1994: From out of space comes a runaway

Two thousand years later, Earth is reborn...

A strange new world rises from the old: a world of
savagery, super science, and sorcery. But one man
bursts his bonds to fight for justice! With his companions
Ookla the Mok and Princess Ariel, he pits his strength,

forces of evil.

He is Thundarr, the Barbarian!

Ah, Belle and Sebastian was very cool. The first show I ever watched that had a continuing story arc through the episodes. It was like a majorly long mini-series. Don't forget Poochy, though!

If you saw Belle and Sebastian, you had to have seen The Little Prince, right? Now that was a trippy show based on an equally trippy book. I know that if I lived on an asteroid, I'd capture comets in a butterfly net and use them as a form of transportation....

what about:

- the live action spider-man show

- count duckula - now this cartoon rocked

Count Duckula. A vampire duck who was created using ketchup (wasn't it ketchup) instead of the proper blood that was supposed to be used. I loved that show.

What, you mean "Thundercats in Space?"

How about "Galaxy Rangers?"
2002-03-31 06:20:27 PM  
Way late to post on this thread, but,

Best obscure cartoon characters for guys to have crushes on:

1. Goldie Gold, of "Goldie Gold and Action Jack". That scene in the opening sequence where she was wearing a black bikini always gave me a funny feeling...

2. Glorious Gal of "Hero High" from the "Super Kid Power Hour", especially since there was a live action sequence with revealing costumes!

3. Much later, but any of the cute anime-ish characters on "Beverly Hills Teens".

As far as awfulness is concerned, no one mentioned:
Wheelie and the Chopper Bunch
The Groovie Ghoulies

although the Get-Along Gang, previously mentioned, takes the cake in my book. Obnoxious theme song, too.

I remember Hero High. I also remember Rex Ruthless' middle name was "Hell." How do I remember? 'Cause I had been SHOCKED that someone would say "hell" on a kids' show!!!

Hey, who remembers Hulk Hogan's Rock 'n Wrestling?

"He won't bite beast or man, 'cause he's a vegatarian."

Great, now I have the Duckula theme song in my head. And those are the only words I remember. Well that, and they said Duckula a lot.

The concept for Duckula was that every 100 years the feared vampire duck was brought back to life, because they kept getting killed. Anyway, instead of blood, the "nanny"- a large duck who always wore a sling on her arm, fetched ketchup instead of blood, which was added into the mix by Duckula's head servant and chief reviver, thus producing the Vegan Vampire.

I think I read through all of these posts and not once did I see The Smurfs...they were cool..but the theme song was one that got stuck in your head forever. Captain Planet, Star Brite, Strawberry Shortcake (I had that bike with training wheels), Care Bears rocked especially when they did the Care Bear countdown, and two others that nobody mentioned: The Cabbage Patch Kids...and Babar the Elephant...

Ah the memories...some sick and twisted...but most cartoons were like that from the 80s

Yeah, I've seen one episode of Samuri Jack, it was pretty cool, but they never showed another episode here again.
It was on the WB channel, and for one day they were showing cartoons from another channel (I guess to get us to subscribe to it).

I like Batman Beyond cause Bruce Wayne is still alive, and it shows that being batman wasn't that great a deal for him.

How did this fool miss Smurfs?

MrDark: Shirt T-t-t-TALES!!!

That Mr. Dingle guy shoulda been named Mr. Dingbat....

When I was 8 (back in 1981) Smurfs were my favorite. Now I enjoy reading about a Smurf orgy on's HILARIOUS!

And i loved all these shows
Not really but now i see that they sorta kicked ass
2002-03-31 09:48:45 PM  
You guys fortgot Ghost busters. That was a damn good show. In though the 80s really sucked minus G-bodies, and feul injection.
2002-03-31 10:40:36 PM  
Did anybody ever see that one Captain Planet episode that took place in the 1930s or something, and there were characters like the main ones, but the Linka character was a Southerner instead of a Russian, and she referred to the markings on her ring as "li'l ol' squiggly lahnes (trying to approximate the accent--female Southern drawl just does something to a guy ^_^)" or something.

Also, I remember the other Ghostbusters cartoon, where it had a completely different team and logo, and the main villain's name was Prime Evil or something. Blarg. X_X

I believe Tranzor Z was a translation of a Japanese cartoon called "Mazinger Z" by Go Nagai, who is indeed famous for proving (as with Aphrodite) that breasts can be a weapon. He also did Cutey Honey if anybody's ever seen that. And for more Tranzor/Aphrodite goodness, Megaman and Roll's "Hyper" move in Marvel vs. Capcom makes them look king of like Tranzor Z and Aphrodite (right down to the atomic boobies). Freaky as all fark.

Pulsarcat:Samurai Jack is on Cartoon Network all the time. Justice league is pretty decent, like Super Friends on testosterone. Amazing how much they had to compensate for Sea Man. He's a badass from hell now.

Hehe. Sea Man.

JohnRoche: That "other" Ghothtbuthterth cartoon had two babeth and a gorilla and a talking car that hated the lot of them, but the car could travel in time, tho that wath pretty cool. And they fought ghothtth and all that fun thtuff. Like, ooh. I think the villian Prime Evil wath actually located 100 yearth into the future, but kept going back to the patht to annoy our current heroeth. Weird show.

Dude, this here is strange.
2002-04-01 01:59:09 AM  
Sopowific: Dat "Ghostbustews" show was a cawtoon vewsion of a wive-action show of de same name fwom de 70's. When "Ghostbustews" de movie wanted to do a TV vewsion, de odew show had de twademawk on a tewevised "Ghostbustews" show. Hence, de addition of "De Weaw" onto de show stawwing Petew Venkman and Swimew.

Hope dat made sense in spite of de fiwtew. Happy Apwiw foows!

Wasn't The Bionic Six from the same people who made the "Or-Bots" cartoon?
2002-04-01 09:03:28 PM

What the Hell was that all about?
