I think its quite funny how much the opening themes made the cartoons even better, I mean, it would be strange to hear this for example...

Captain Caveman
Bigfoot and WIldboy
Groovie Goolies
Shazam
Goober and the ghost chasers

And folks wonder why folks from my generation are all about bigfoot, UFOs, and ghosts...


Hi Advantage
I never thought about it but its true the cartoons you watched did bring in all the ideas of Bigfoot and ghosts..And barney i agree is the worst! thanks for your reply

The old Toons from the 60's, 70's and some 80's ones, plus shows like F Troop, Bewitched, Brady Bunch (Yuk) are all being re-run here in Oz on free to air HD Digital channels!!

Yep. I get to relive my childhood again as I slip further into my second childhood in old age... ain't life grand?


F Troop, Bewitched, Brady Bunch and a few of the others i hope never get re-run here i hated them then but they did bring alot of those back in movies that i never watched..
yep getting older does suck
thanks for the reply

Tom and Jerry- still being played, my daughters favorite.
Yogi Bear- Loved it
Whats that cartoon series that was on U.S.A. It was kinda like yogi bear but with car racing? I think it was on something like U.S.A cartoon express or something.
MASK- best toys
Ren and Stimpy- much later but worth noting
Whatever happened to count chocula cereal. I could go back in time with that stuff.


oh wow Tom and Jerry and Yogi Bear i almost forgot about them great cartoons!hm mm count chocula cereal i think they still make that cereal I'm not sure but it was good stuff..thanks for replying

Most awesome thread ever! Thanks for the trip down memory lane.

I grew up in the 80s and i remember the cartoons of that day had strong messages of friendship, loyalty, honesty and integrity. These themes were woven into engaging stories with dialogue and actual story lines.

In contrast, I sat down and watched some cartoons with my nephews the other day. I cant remember the name of the cartoon, but it was atrocious! The characters were rude to each other, there was no storyline, no point to any of the disconnected conversations that were taking place between the characters, and there was so much fast movement and flashing light, I felt like I was going to have an epileptic fit.

I feel sorry that my nephews will not get to experience cartoons in the same way I did at their age.


I think the cartoons of today are geared towards what the kids are into now and i agree some are atrocious i wonder what cartoons will be like 30 years from now yikes!

Well, not cartoons but American Bandstand on Saturday mornings, and The Monkees and The Partridge Family. Oh my gosh, my friends and I use to scream and sing and dance while watching.
