They could never do it Justice - do like i did and watched the originals, you can get the full series - worth it.

However if Square Enix (the makers of final fantasy) teamed up to mak it then you got quite a film.

I was not into the younger slap stick type of cartoon genre.
I liked the slightly more sophisticated ones.


Robotech owned!

Well being Japanese pretty much says it all.
But what I liked outside some of the action was it's realism where some of the stars would die and not come back.

made one think about consiquences

I think i know the one you mean. There were people or people like beings that lived inside us, like we were there world - could that be the one?

Any one remember Centurions.

I think the US army are now developing exo suites that allow soldiers to carry more faster..do a search for US army exo suits and see what turns up.
Just something else to think about.

yeah, thats right, all the different cells were little people, not an exciting cartoon but really strange.

i was a rather odd child apparently, i never really liked the manga stuff all that much. danger-mouse is about as exciting as i got.


EDIT:found it, boobs in the intro, no wonder i was hooked in

one thing I found odd about cartoons in the 80s since i was born in 1976 is the amount of racism involved in the wb cartoons. just one example is Buggs Bunny using "cotton pickin" all the time. One wb cartoon that I do think about a lot is the cartoon documentaries like under the see where dog fish barked and hammer head sharks pounded nails with their heads.... Oh and then their is G.I. Joe... loved it. What about M.A.S.K anyone remember that cartoon...


Yup I remember MASK...HA... thats old school.

Hell yea...i watched cartoons when i was kid even thou i am a 90s baby.

There are a few cartoons that trumped them all. GI JOE, Transformers, Gobots, In-humanoids, Bionic Six, Thunder Cats all that jazz.

But what's really funny are the commericals. Go watch some commericals for old toys for boys..there were violent to say the least and wouldn't be shown today.

What about Skeletor? Come on people!!! He-Man was just friggin' creepy.

Seriously though... the best show of the 80's was Star Blazers. Yeah, it was Japanese and dubbed... But they actually blew crap up and people actually (implied) died. Not at all like GI Joe, where Cobra Commander or Destro always jumped out of the exploding vehicle at the last second.

You want to talk about cool theme songs?

Thanks for the link to your thread but i'm feeling its starting to get a bit off topic to my OP and would like people to comment on what impact their favourite cartoons had o them. MCOG and Ullysses left me seeking knowledge and believing more in my own thoughts.

Sorry, i didn't mean to come across narky, sharing your favourites is great but i ALSO want to know how they affected you and if they were a contribution to who or where you are now? Did you feel looking back, they were trying to tell us something or to look a little deeper.


The most violent cartoon i watched in the 80's (from late 70's) Watership Down which now i feel has propaganda to it (i have a thread in RATS on this for anyone interested and has the subscription). Wonder how many of you watched that one??
