the post about wash looking like one of the characters from fraggle rock got me thinking, what are people's favorite cartoons or children's television shows from when they were young? considering the state of children's shows on the mainstream networks these days, i kind of miss those days of the smurfs, which was my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE show when i was young. anyway, what are some others?

for me, in no particular order:

the smurfs (as i said)
garfield and friends
ducktales :) - thought the movie was pretty fun too!

When I was a kid I never missed Mighty Mouse or Underdog on Saturday mornings. Of course, the whole family used to watch The Flintstones in prime time.

Ha, Star Blazers was supreme - had to climb up on the roof and rig the most jackwire antenna you ever saw (yes i was a child tinker-genius, so sue me!) in order to pull in a channel from another state cause that was the only way I could watch it - staticcy picture, no color, fair sound quality, and I still loved every damn minnit.

Other than that - Bugs Bunny, Merry Melodies and crew... those dorks who ran them off the air citing 'violence' and suchlike must have never looked at the damned things - just how MUCH folklore, history, and appreciation for classical music did YOU learn from ole Bugs and crew ?
(fer damn sure Blue Danube sounds awful strange to me without the two 'off' notes, lol!)

Anyhow, tis my rant there, too bad cartoons these days are half hour product advertisments.. gah..

OH!, one good shout out on a semi-modern one - Animaniacs, yer supposed to watch it with yer kids as it has jokes for adults in it too, and followed in the same footsteps on culture and learning as ole Bugs did.

These were on Australian TV in the 80's, so forgive me if some of you don't know all of these -

1. Battle of the Planets
2. Voltron (especially the one where Voltron was made from mechanical lions)
3. She-Ra, and to a lesser extent He Man.
4. Jem. (Truly, truly, truly outrageous!)

Oh, and how about "Monkey"? Gotta have some monkey magic. And Press Gang!(Spike and Linda - yay!)and Degrassi High! You Can't Do That On Television! Oh, oh, and the Wuzzles! Thundercats (or Chundercats as we called them) and, and, and...

On another note - what happened to the good old days, when children's programming was for selling action figures instead of collector card games?? Tsk, Tsk.

I was lucky. I just managed to catch the last of the re-runs of all those great old cartoons back when I went to my Grandparents house to watch Cartoon Network all day (and all night)

I had a serious crush on Johnny Quest, and when the NEW Adventures of Johnny Quest came out, i wanted to BE Jessie.

Tom & Jerry
Bugs Bunny and all those other Loony Toones/Merry Melodies.
Fantastic Four
Scooby Doo
Batman/Superman/Justice Leauge
ORIGONAL Sealab 2020 (although I LOVE that Sealab 2021 crap on adult swim)

There was also some show where there was a never-ending race (i think some of it was in the air, and some of it was in cars), with some evil bad guy and his dog hatching these off the wall scheames to win. There was also something about catching a pigeon (can't remember why though). There was also some chick in pink called Penolope Pitstop.

There was also some show in, like, the mid ninties that ran for a season and a half then got inexplicably cancled (sound familiar?). It was called the SWAT Kats and that was my all time favoirte show. They were these humanioid cats (kats) who flew around in a jet and got bad guys. They had some cool bad guys on that show too.

Aww, who am i kidding, I STILL watch cartoons.

It's been so many years that I forgot, but the original Johnny Quest was my favorite cartoon ever. Also, liked Clutch Cargo even though it had poor animation. The best cartoons I ever saw were the ones when my family lived in Japan in the mid-60's, but I don't remember the names - they were all in Japanese anyway.

COMPLETELY forgot about danger mouse! he was the best! penfold too! i remember the villan being a toad, but i cannot remember his name! i remember his pet, though. nero the caterpillar. :) what was danger mouse's boss' name? i remember he looked like a beaver or woodchuck or something. i also remember these little cartoon shorts that were shown right before danger mouse called bananaman. OUTRAGEOUSLY FUNNY! i loved that too, mainly because the hero (bananaman himself!) had the same name as me. kind of made me feel special.

the baddy was baron greenback with his hench crow stiletto and dm's boss was colonel k.

glad to see batfink get a mention too, i was about to add him.

transformers. always my fave (hence my big toy collection i've amassed as an (alleged) adult)
mask. dodgy kinda transformers rip off, but in a subtle way, was kinda fun
the centurions. power extreme :) i wanted to be the flying guy
spiderman and his amazing friends. mmmm, firestar.
starfleet. jap puppet space opera with mecha, great then, still great now. involving story arcs and everything.

i never saw much of robotech as a kid, don't think they pushed it over here in blighty like they seemed to in the states, but i've recently watched (quite) a few episodes on suprnova and loved it lots and finally found somewhere to pick up the dvds to finish watching my way through the macross saga. and as a transfan it's great to see all those jetfires around :) seriously though, it's good to see a long involved storyline with some real character progression rather than a bunch of disconnected storylines, kill off a load of characters, bring in a load of new characters and their toys to flog. yes transformers the movie, i'm looking at you. i love you, but you're guilty as hell.

how could i forget that?! have to amend my list. TMNT was great! i thought the show had a great mix of action and humor. i do not remember most of the episodes, but i remember one when kang gets his "hands" on some kind of new robot thingy and he goes around terrorizing everyone (of course) and when he first gets the robot, he says something like "there's nothing like the smell of a new robot interior". you have to admit, to a 10 year old, that is pretty funny. i especially liked the episode when michaelangelo and shredder switch bodies.

I remember Pirates of Dark Water, The Gummy Bears, Bananaman. The list goes on...

The cartoons/shows I loved to watch included:

* Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles.
* Trap Door
* The X-Men cartoon
* Samurai Pizza Cats
* Sharky & George (the crime busters of the sea! )
* Ghostbusters
* Tom & Jerry
* Thundercats
* Jace and the Wheeled Warriors
* Bill and Ted cartoon
* Round the twist (An Australian kids drama that dealt with weird stuff that happened to a family living in a lighthouse. Genius!)
* Eerie Indiana
* Saved by the bell (Cannot beat the original series)

Sunday morning was Popeye time. One of the local stations (KTLA) had the "Adventures of Popeye" with a host who wore a sailor hat (Tom Hatten). He had a big barrel full of reader mail and one of his schticks was to invite viewers to send in random squiggles. He would start with the squiggle and turn it into Popeye characters. It was like magic to watch him draw the characters so quickly. I can't remember if it was one hour or two hours of Popeye cartoons interspersed with the host setting up each cartoon. And (I may be conflating two shows here) they would slip in Tom Slick, Super Chicken, and George of the Jungle shorts.

Fraggle Rock was my absolute favorite! I wish they'd hurry up and put the seasons out on DVD. Also, the Muppet Show. I loved the cranky guys in the balcony.

Something alway bothered me about She-Ra, though. You ever notice that she doesn't solve problems by herself? She always uses either help from her woodland creature friends or call on He-Man for help. It's not very empowering.

I loved Terrahawks, the Gerry Anderson marionation.



How could I forget Terrahawks?! The Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet, Joe 90, Stingray reruns were always cool as a kid.

I've remembered some more:

* The Raccoons
* Scooby Doo (and Scrappy Doo)
* The Chipmunks
* Muppet Babies cartoon (I was REALLY young)
* There was a kids drama way back on CBBC 1 in the 90's. I think it was called Elidor? Does anyone remember it? Creepy, brilliant stuff as a kid.
* Where on earth is Carmen San Diego?
* MC Hammer cartoon (Again, I was REALLY young. )
* Dinosaurs
* Marvel Action Hour

I loved Fraggle Rock and Garfield and Friends too.
