When you feel like there is nothing left to do inside your house and the cold weather prevents you from doing anything outside the internet can be your best friend. Now there is plenty for me to do inside, I just choose not to. Instead I have been watching my favorite 80’s cartoons via YouTube.
I thought I would share some of my favorites with you all:
M.A.S.K. (Mobile Armoured Strike Kommand) is quite possibly my all time favorite cartoon from the 80’s. I do not think I missed an episode when I was a kid. I always dreamed of my first vehicle being a M.A.S.K. vehicle… Funny thing is, I still remember the opening lyrics but forgot how cheesy the music is. Got to love that 80’s music! I really wish they would put this cartoon on DVD already (I have only found bootlegs). I would buy it in a heartbeat for sure.
“In the near future, Doc Terror and his cyborg companion Hacker…” Hahaha, I never noticed that line before during the opening. Maybe there was much more to Centurions then my young mind could handle when I watched this show. It was on at like 6am on channel 61 right before the newly created Home Shopping Network began and I made sure woke up and quietly watched it so not to wake my folks up.
The Gobots… Transformers retarded cousins… This Hanna Barbara cartoon cracked me up with the voices and odd looking robots. Do you think they will make a Gobot movie??? I hope not.
Visionaries… Not a huge fan of the cartoon but I loved the group herculean intro. Makes you feel super manly!
…umm… Not a favorite of mine at all… Love the intro song though! Also love the face that Pole Position was an arcade game and this cartoon was more Speed Racer….
Danger Mouse. The only reason I loved Nickelodeon. Well that and You Can’t Do That On Television, Salute Your Shorts, and the Adventures of Pete & Pete…(some of which were more 90’s shows…)
Ghostbusters. It was ok, but not as entertaining as the next…
This version of Ghostbusters was way more entertaining and tripped out… I could not get enough of this show. It was whacked.
So there is my small list of some 80’s favorites. I know I am missing a few but I can not for the life of me remember some of them. I admit I watched a lot of cartoons when I was younger. I left the obvious ones out like Ducktales, Tale Spin, TMNT and Transformers because I think that pretty much everyone remembers those cartoons. I was trying to point out the obscure.
What are some of your favorites?
