Oh my god, that's right! Chuck Norris DID have his own cartoon!… Wow… People in the 80's must have been on crack…

And didn't they make a movie off of the littles?

Wow…

I feel sorry for the 80's people. I mean, I watched some pretty bad shows as a kid, but THESE. Geezus.

Though the Thundercats Intro is pretty cool animation-wise.

Everything that came outta the 80s should be ashamed of themselves. Including myself (1986).

Hguyver: Actually, I didn't even know Chuck Norris has his own cartoon either. There are a number of 80's American/European cartoon shown in the clip on top that is unknown to me.

ccs1989: I'm an 80's kid and I do admit that when I was a kid, I don't enjoy any of the 80's cartoon at all except for a few anime and a classic dark European cartoon about WWII. LoL. At least the 90's cartoon has better storyline but some of the 90's character designs were too horrendous to watch (Biker Mice From Mars, Ren & Stimpy, etc.).

fern: Nothing to be ashamed about. :P You have no idea how many crazy 80's kid worshipped these bad 80's cartoon. Now, that's creepy.

And here're some of the openings for the popular 80's anime. But there are many other titles I no longer recall anymore:

Mospeada:


Macross:


Dr. Slump:


Minky Momo (Gigi in English):


Mahou no Yousei Pelsia:


Honey Honey:


Lum (Not sure if it's 80's):


Sei Juushi Bismark (Sabre Rider in English):
Japanese intro and ending


American intro

I remember having a video of this really old anime about a blue haired guy with a transforming motorcycle. It was in Chinese so I couldn't understand it. Ten years later, I found out the name. Genesis Climber Mospaeda. Cheers Eunice.



Oh, don't forget Iron Fist Chinmi. Unfortuanately, there's no clips of that on YouTube. Seach it on wikipedia.

I remember watching Volte V, which was awesomesauce.



Oh, and don't forget DuckTales.

I liked Candy Candy! I still would, I guess, if I could get hold of a clip or tape.

I used to have a bunch of ‘My Little Pony’ toys. I started avoiding them once my sister realized that the hard plastic made them pretty effective projectiles.

Aw, come on! You guys didn't enjoy Inspector Gadget?! Inspector Gadget rocked!

And now for some food for thought:

What if Metal Gear, Halo, or Time Crisis was turned into one of those shows?

If Metal Gear, Halo, or Time Crisis came out in the 80's or early 90's they might have been made in to cheesy saturday cartoon shows. … Oh wait, the original Metal gear DID come out in the 80's didn't it? Well if they had made a cartoon version of it, it probably would have replace Snake's guns with lasers that even if they did hit someone the person probably would have surived. Just like G.I. Joe.

I liked Inspector Gadget, even now for the campy-ness. Besides, the theme was catchy! “wowsers!”

If you're in your 20's and had Nickeloden you watched this show.

You're also going to have that theme song stuck in your head for the next week

The animation may not have been the best, but i'd prefer any of these classics to the commercialized, Politically Correct, Mind-Numbing crap of today.

Notice how about 99% of all the animated shows that played on network TV sucked ass? I can hardly think of an original cartoon that played on ABC, NBC, or CBS on Saturday mornings that wasn't just horrible. The only decent ones were the ones that were extended editions of shows that were ALREADY playing on syndicated TV like Real Ghostbusters.

Depends on the time period. Animated shows in the 1970s and 1980s were pretty good, for the most part (think the original Scooby-Doo, Schoolhouse Rock commercials, Thundarr the Barbarian, etc.). By the 1990s, I'd stopped watching Saturday morning cartoons, for the most part, so I'd probably agree with you there. I only watch now with my kids and most of what they watch is on Toon Disney, Cartoon Network or Boomarang.

I was never really a fan of Real Ghostbusters, but we all have different interests, eh? :)

All I know is that back then, I got up at 7:30 every saturday morning cause cartoons were actually worth watching. Nowadays, it's surprising if I get up before noon on a Saturday.

I meant during the 80s. They picked up a little in the early-mid 90s, but have been pretty much downhill since just before the turn of the century. They don't even play them on most networks anymore either.
