Ever since I got the Dungeons and Dragons cartoon on dvd I have been on a mission to get more stuff like that. Cartoons that were awesome...but not as popular as say Joe or TF.

Theres alot of em I forgot about now that I've been "shopping."

Here are a few I want, miss, looking to buy...or just wanna chat about. If you can add to the list...do it up!

Dragon's Lair

Mr. T

Wheeled Warriors

WWF: Anyone remember the "official" name of this?

Anyone remember the "Monster Truck" cartoon?

Pole Position

Here's one that wasn't exactly "2nd tier" but I'm not sure if it's "1st tier" either....Plastic Man. Damnit I wish there was a Plastic Man dvd!

I didn't find any official DVDs of it, but apparently there are VHS tapes:

You mean you never had the urge to spill something hot on yourself and turn into a 2nd generation Firebird? What gives?! :)

I think that was an ABC deal and if I'm not mistaken came on in the same hr as Dragon's Lair...I'm trying to remember what other whacky crap they had going on.

I remember also seeing Space Ghost (Not the talk show, the actual cartoon with the kids in space and stuff)

PitViper
02-12-2011, 11:57 AM
Oh yeah, Space Ghost was awesome...I remember almost being bummed out when I found out it was talk show/spoof...I thought we were getting real Space Ghost again.

Then again it had it's funny moments.

You remember the one Hanna Barbera toon that was sorta like a He-Man rip off?....He had a sword sorta like Darth Maul's...rode a horse, wore gold armor...I think it started the "G"

No it wasn't Thundaar...damn I checked a HB cartoon list and it wasn't on it.

I believe he raised the sword over his head and blades came out at both ends...

While I search that....Pac-Man (a cartoon and game so great I forced myself to like it's disgusting cereal!)

Wow!! Rambo and the Freedom Forces!!

It's 11 AM, too early to bust out my Rambo figures and a 24oz can??

I don't remember how good the cartoon was, I just remember it. The toys on the other hand are without a doubt SUPER unsung.

PitViper
02-12-2011, 12:11 PM
I just watched the Thundaar intro.

Ok, 1st of all it would be RIDICULOUS for MOTU to deny a bit of "influence"

2nd of all...A light saber?...seriously Thundaar?

Yes,It was based off of games by the game complany,Acclaim.I think it was called the Power Team.If I rmemeber right it was like Captain N but backwords.The game characters come out of the game the kid is playing into our world.It had characters from Narce,Bigfoot,and a basket ball game.For what I remember.

Herculoids and Space Ghost are really late 60's and early 70's cartoons..they had a few episodes tooled and aired in the early 80s but they are definitely not in the same era as 80s toons..that's my opinion at least.

Nah you're right...alot of that HB stuff is older.

I don't think we were really talking about the years as much as we were the popularity.

If I'm not mistaken, didn't Space Ghost get a small run in the early 80's on NBC?--a revamp?

Bionic Six and Mighty Orbots comes to my mind as some 2nd tier cartoons.

that was long time away in the future and that it was really going to happen.

That was cool too...just the aestethics of the whole show...that damned intro seemed to be moving so fast and powerful! TC had that feel to it too, and yeah I love TC but Silverhawks being in space and all...and really they just looked "different".

TC is great, but in it's own way it has a MOTU feel to it.

Silverhawks was just...out there. I can remember not watching it at 1st, then a few episodes...then being really excited to watch it.
