Eighties Goodness

If you grew up watching cartoons during the eighties then you’ve no doubt noticed how some of that period’s most beloved shows are now being turned into Hollywood blockbusters. What with the sequel to the Transformers movie and GI Joe coming to theaters soon, and Thundercats and Voltron just looming over the horizon, those of us who’re wetting our pants in anticipation will have more than enough to aid in our reversion to childhood. So then how about those other shows that were on during that same timeframe? You know, all the derivative copycat cartoons that jumped on the bandwagon of existing for the sole purpose of selling toys?

Not ringing any bells? Maybe this list will jog your memory then…

      Now THAT would be interesting!! I’d love to see that redone! As a toon or a flick. It could be like the insect version of Avatar!!

    What about Exo-Squad? Don’t get me wrong, for the most part I am definitely down w/the choices, M.A.S.K. and SilverHawks being my favs on the list. Still, Exo-Squad was the ish!!

      Definitely. Was a bit deep, dark and political for kids but a great show and it was very well done.

    love Mask, if they do a 90s list, I think Exosquad should be #1 on there

    the ThunderCats didn’t go throughout the galaxy to fight, it was pretty much just on their planet from what i remember…although this is going back a ways now…
    as for the leader thing…well…of course there is going to be a leader…how many groups do you know of that DON’T have a leader and actually function?

      A new planet was found and it was named New Thundera and they travelled back and forth between Third Earth and there.
