Oh wow. So many good memories out here already.
I loved the old Warner Bros cartoons. It was only when I got older that I realised that most of them were never meant for children. Of course, in apartheid South Africa you took what you could get and I learned a lot about old Hollywood from the references in the cartoons. I still use those references today. LOL. They were incredibly politically incorrect though. The WW2 ones are amazing propaganda. I have a full collection of banned Looney Tunes cartoons stored somewhere.
Then there’s Garfield and Friends… also loaded with gags not meant for kids but crazy funny. Every episode was a winner.
Anyone remember The Galaxy Rangers? Holy bionics, Batman! “Dedicated to preserving law and order across the new frontier”? Sign me up! Also: the most badass theme song of any cartoon ever. EVER. And yeah…it was better than Bravestarr.
I could go on and on with this (Atom Ant, The Herculoids (Tara…unf), The Ghostbusters, Bionic Six, GI Joe, Mask, Centurions, Spiral Zone, Dino Riders, Sabre Rider, He-Man, Wacky Races, The Groovy Goonies, The Archies, Top Cat, Dastardly and Muttley, etc) but I’m gonna end with a perpetual classic:
Thanks for a great trip down memory lane. I think I’m gonna spend the rest of the day YouTubing episodes of these cartoons.
BTW: @JRCarter gets a massive like for including Defenders of The Earth!!! One of the best shows ever! I so wanted to be Mandrake.
