Blast from the Past ya'll! 1980's Style

In no particular order, here are some of the cartoons I remember from my childhood! Looking at this list (and these are the ones I seriously remember!!) I was a tom boy. While there are a few girl cartoons, most of these were “boy” type cartoons! And at the time of the Robotech/Voltron cartoons, I had no idea what anime was. I just thought they were super cool massive robots that were just really cool to watch.

I wonder what all of these ‘toons say about me, the person I am today? Are they any ‘Toonologist in the house? I need to be analyzed stat! Another reason I think why I was so into the sci-fi cartoons, was when I was younger I wanted to be an astronaut or an anthropologist. I still am interested in both, but I was ready to go there. I think with the line up here my love for the future and space travel really shows through! Comments are welcome!

Beverly Hills Teens
This one is so random! I saw this and instant memory! Loved this one, though I could not always find it on tv.

BraveStarr Had to watch this!! It was from the people who did He-Man and She-Ra!! Though it didn’t last long this was a good show.

Captain N: Game Master What can I say? LOVED this one as well. My brother had a Nintendo which came with Duck Hunt!! And while I was not into video games per se, I’d devoured the ‘toons religiously that came out!

Dragon's Lair Now this is one arcade game I played at Chucky E Cheeses! Though I loved the cartoon better! FYI-Don Bluth was at Comic Con last year (2008) and he totally signed my Dragon’s Lair comic book! Totally STOKED!!

Dungeons and Dragons
It’s funny. A lot of these ‘toons were based on role playing or video games but I never really got into that. I just loved the cartoons. This one was soo cool. CBS on Saturday morning cartoons.

Galaxy High Now here is one that I can’t believe didn’t last longer. I believe it came on NBC? Now they have the whole series on DVD. I will have to get this one. This one was about a human kid who ended up in a high school in space and of course the aliens bully him. AWESOME show!

Ghostbusters filmation This one was not the real ghostbusters, but I thoroughly enjoyed it!

G.I. Joe Now, this toon. I remember I was in junior high school, and everyday I would hurry home to watch this most awesome show!! “Now you know, and knowing is half the battle” Still to this day say that phrase!

He-Man and the Masters of the Universe Just wow on this one! I even own the movie with Dolph Lundgren! I mean the awesome powers!

Inspector Gadget I This one was cool. lol I mean you have this bumbling idiot with all of these gadgets yet his niece and dog were the true heroes. AWESOME show. And I loved the opening song for this one!

Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors Another sci-fi one in space.

Jem What can I say? This little cartoon ROCKED! It was about girls, some Synergy, and two musical groups who really sang their butts off! I still am waiting for a cd to come out! Side note: Barbie and the Rockets came out. Each doll had a cassette tape. Just telling you they sucked and sorry were not as cool! LAME

Kidd Video Serious, this was just a cool way to include videos into cartoons. Side note: didn’t have MTV so was mostly watching Friday Night Videos, so this was an extra special treat. Plus the original music was kick ass! Master Blaster in the Flipside!!

Pac-Man Another video game cartoon. I played this at the arcade. Though Ms. Pac-Man kicked major booty!

Rainbow Brite This one was soo cool!

Real Ghostbusters Now here was the real one and this one was true to the movie. Wish they bring this one back!

Robotech My first Giant Robot cartoon that was Japanese based. Did not realized it was Anime, but I loved the fact that they were in space and loved the look of it. Still love Anime, though it used to be called Japanimation. Dang as I write this I feel so old.

Schoolhouse Rock Speaks for itself. 3 is the magic number. Conjunction junction. I’m just a bill. I could keep going, but you get the picture!

She-Ra: Princess of Power He-Man’s sister and twin! Loved her though He-Man and his villains were better, this was a complete copy.

Smurfs How could I not include this awesome show! With like only one female. Hmm How come we never questioned this when we younger? lol

Snorks The Smurfs cousins, well at least that is what I used to think! Aquatic life never looked so neat! And all before Spongebob Squarepants!

Strawberry Shortcake How could I not include this! Have a berry good day! Had a doll that smelled like strawberries. And the relaunch? How dare they!! and they gave her short hair? Thank god for dvd's of the original!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Loved those crazy turtles with their renaissance names!

Thundarr the Barbarian The intro to this cartoon! Just had serious flashbacks:
The year 1994: From out of space comes a runaway 
planet, hurtling between the Earth and the Moon,
unleashing cosmic destruction. Man's civilization is
cast in ruin.

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,
his courage, and his fabulous Sunsword against the
forces of evil.


He is Thundarr, the Barbarian!
ThunderCats Loved this one!

Transformers The original was and still is the best! Thank god the movie follows this one and not say Beast Wars!

Turbo Teen How many people remember this one? A boy who turned into a car? Yeah this littel show ROCKED!

Voltron, Defender of the Universe
Voltron had two shows, same situations but two different robots, one on a planet one in space! Classic!

Your list is so different from mine. I mostly indulged in Japanese cartoons when I was young, with lots of handsome heros and pretty or cute heroines. No wonder I'm addicted to romance
