I've always enjoyed the Sunbow cartoons, even though the stories are abit sci fi or crazy at times.

The problem is many folks are watching these cartoons today and judging them as an adult. We may think they are stupid today but I can guarantee that many of us rushed home after school back in the day to watch these things even when we knew it would be just another stupid episode rerun. Obviously the show had some appeal to us back when we didn't have the critical thinking skills of a 30 year old.

Thats what they were going for, kids are dumb. They will watch or buy anything. Focus less on those terrible episodes and more on the ones you like. Im a huge star trek fan, and I have been watching the seasons on dvd and let me tell you; after every episode I have a moment where Ill think to myself. Wow that was a good episode, or wow that was terrible, wtf?

As a kid, I had no problem suspending my disbelief and buying in to the conceits of the show as a whole. As an adult, I can pick out the clunkers a little easier, but still love every episode like I was 10 again.

it seems regular networks don't put as many cartoons on either. I can remember coming home from school and there were always cartoons on. nowadays there are judge shows and talk shows in those slots on the same channels (I'm talking regular non-cable, broadcast channels). even on Saturdays it's different. it used to be that almost every broadcast channel had cartoons on Saturday morning, now very few do. Fox has all education type kids shows on now and they didn't last year that I can remember. I don't know. things change and it was a different time back then, that's for sure.
as far as the Joe cartoon specifically...yea, many of the stories are silly and some even seemed that way as a kid, but I still enjoyed them. heck, I'm enjoying re-watching them now. it was just great to have a cartoon to go with the GI Joe for me (I had the toys before the cartoon). it was just really neat to me despite the sillyness.

It's funny... I always said we watched these with rose-colored glasses. I thought the same thing, but honestly, the series had its ups & downs... anything starring Quick Kick is generally a down with his less-than-awesome Humphrey Bogart impersonations.
There are a lot of little inside jokes & comments that went right over my head as a kid that I enjoy now.
