Don't know if anybody said this one or if the OP is only asking for daily/weekly cartoon series.......

It's from 1988 so it could qualify.

Akira

Cool thread OP

Very true, but if not these particular cartoons, then similar cartoons or tales/stories about similar subjects.

Obviously there are broad range of ages here on ATS so i doubt that massive percentages would have, perhaps just finding out if they liked this stuff as a kid would be as good...or watched similar programs that were around in their time.

That is great, it'd be cool to actually find this out - its like another missing piece of the jigsaw puzzle that for me is life. Life to me is a Jig-saw and eveyrone has a different Jig-saw puzzle. Its threads like this one which help me to find the missing pieces of my own life/puzzle. Sorry if thats sounds crazy, but it makes sense to me. I look forward to see what other questions are asked. Thankyou once again.

Great find.


Ideal criteia: Any cartoons from 80's that made an impression on you (key) so anything goes providing it is kids TV - doesn't have to animated - will stretch to early 90's.

Would the criteria fit that bill

Unfortunately, Akira was and is not a kids film.
It is a pretty graphic manga film.... a brilliant one at that, but definitely not for kids

Does "Heavy Metal" count?
That blew me away when I first watched it.

Oops, Hmmmn. I dont think watershipdown was aimed at kids either but i watched that too at a very young age. It was on at 6pm and my mum thought it was just another cartoon, geez if only they knew half of what i actually watched, ha,ha.



Great point though.

No but literally, Akira is R- rated i believe or an 18 in the uk and features rape, violence and pretty disturbing stuff..... i know a lot of kids stuff was pretty risque at the time and certainly not aimed at kids... but Akira is definitely not a kids film.... no more than south park or family guy or Meet the Feebles...

Does anyone remember a show where these children were trying to find these sort of golden puzzle pieces and had to fight little ewk type creatures? It might have been a show only made in Britain. It wasn't a cartoon but i saw this thread and hoped someone would remember it because it has been bugging me for years!

My friends and i used to be shown it in school, it was actually a very strange program but everyone i know from my class in that year saw it and remembers it, yet i cannot find anyone else who has! If someone can remember it please U2U me or post it here.

Cheers.

Your right, it doesn't count and i haven't seen it so i cannot comment. I had seen it hadn't been mentioned but stupidly didn't realise that it was adult manga. It did make me think of the stuff i did watch that i shouldn't have done so young.

Well ,maybe just because it's 18+ rated is the reason why i ,and a lot of kids my age, watched this movie when i was 14/15 years old , around 1990 ..(can't remember that well).

peace..

yep, definitely.

I think i saw some films and some anime/manga that i really didn't need to see at that age.
But i suppose I'm glad i did in a way,because I've always been pretty open and very interested in weird and wonderful things.... like many of the topics here.

Oh i agree definitely, I'm not saying it hasn't been watched by kids... i watched it myself as a kid, but the OP's description of kids cartoons are just that... the cartoons we watched as kids. Little half hour shows that were gripping and mesmerizing as a kid and really made you think and kept you glued.
