    Talking Cartoons of the 80's

    I was born in '82 and definitely grew up with the cartoons of the 80's. So I know that I am about to get those surreal nostlagic feelings brewing. Which one did you just have to wake up for/rush home to. And which network had the best lineup on Saturday mornings?

    It was all about She-Ra!

    Re: Cartoons of the 80's

    I have vivid memories of my time spent at this day care where kids like me with working parents would go before and after school (it was within walking distance of my elementary). There was always a conflict over wether we were gonna whacth what the boys wanted (G.I. Joe, He-man, Transformers, etc) or what the girls wanted (Jem, My Little Pony, etc). Those were the days...

    I miss getting up for Saturday morning cartoons. I would still do it even as an adult if they still showed quality cartoons on Saturday mornings.

    Re: Cartoons of the 80's

    yeah...Saturday morning cartoons these days seem pretty bland...i know that 80's cartoons were just marketing vehicles but today they just seem more boring...as for my favorite...has to be Robotech...I've got most of them on DVD now...and I can actually still watch them...

    Re: Cartoons of the 80's

    I always had to watch PeeWee's Playhouse on Saturday mornings. Ooh - that Cowboy Curtis was worth watching all alone!
    Thundercats was big for my son then, also Glowfriends and Potato Head Kids.

    I watched Looney Tunes and Disney cartoons when I was young. Back in the last ice age.

    I'm with you Momzilla (back in the last ice age). I loved PeeWee's Playhouse, but my favorites were Bullwinkle and Looney Tunes.

    The TV cartoons of the 80's were particularly bad, it seemed (I had to work on some of the worst after college). At least until The Simpsons and Family Dog came on the scene in the late part of the decade. The animated parts of Pee Wee's Playhouse were good, though.

    Re: Cartoons of the 80's

    Well, I was born in 1974 so...

    I remember watching alot of the old Hanna Barbara cartoons... The Hair Bear Bunch, Captain Caveman, Scooby Doo, Jabber Jaw, Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound, Snaggle Puss, Josie & the *****cats... Also alot of old Tom & Jerry Loony Tunes/Merrie Melodies as well as the infamous Disney shorts (Silly Symphonies, et al).

    I LOVED the Banana Splits and those roller skating birds too.

    I also remember watching the Smurfs, Kidd Video, Paw Paws (little Indian bears), Fat Albert, Biscuits (little midevial puppies) & Monchichis. Oh yeah... and Strawberry Shortcake.

    Re: Cartoons of the 80's

    The end-all, be-all for me was, is, and always will be Scooby Doo. My brother and I used to physically fight over who got the tv at 3 when our mom was done watching General Hospital. I always won, and eventually, my mother issued a solid parental decree that I was to watch Scooby at 3 and he could watch what he wanted after that.

    Re: Cartoons of the 80's

    Anyone else remember when there was a Gummi Bear cartoon?


    I Loved Rainbow Brite, Smurfs, She-ra, Snorks (or was it Snorkels?), Alvin & the Chipmunks, Inspector Gadget, Jem.

    Does anyone remember a cartoon that had like furry creatures that lived in trees or something? I know, that's not much to go on, but I started having weird flashbacks to a cartoon when I read this thread and I can't remember what it was. It isn't listed here, and I have searched a bunch of sites and haven't seen it. Maybe it was my imagination.
