PostPosted: Mon May 30, 2005 4:59 pm    Post subject: The General Retro/Popular Cartoon Thread Reply with quote
NOTE: This thread has been renamed to adopt dicussion about cartoons in general rather then just retro.

It'd like the take a trip down memory lane for a moment and recall the many memorable cartoons that had come and gone. I'll try and recall them in chronological order.

They are:

Popeye
The spinach muchin' sailor. How could we forget. It is the earliest cartoon I can recall.

Betty Boop (various)
The first ever sexy cartoon character.

Looney Toons
Need I say more?

Super-man
The classic super hero. First shown in theatres in 1941.

The Flintsones
A Stone-Age family.

The Jetsons
A Space-Age family.

Smoggies
An anti-pollution cartoon. Probably from the 70's.

Scooby-doo
A gang of teens who solve mysteries.

Roger Ramjet
A dim-witted crime fighting American squadron leader who pops pills to enhance his strength.

Speed Racer
Go Speed Go!

Astro-Boy
The English adaptation of Tezuka's Mighty Atom anime.

DinoRiders
Like Smoggies, I only vaguely remember this cartoon.

Dennis the Menace
This cartoon bugged me and still does.

The Chipmunks
All singing, all dancing rodents. They seriously need a revival.

G.I. Joe
I was never really into this show as a kid. It was mostly friends who enjoyed it.

Transformers
a rockin' robot show from the 80's. You all know the one.

Voltron
I had only seen a very small amount of this show. What I'd seen has stayed with me.

Robotech
The English adaption of a number of Macross anime. Again, I only vaguely remember it from back then. A great robot show never the less.

Inspector Gadget
A Dic cartoon. Originally a French production. I believe it was animated in Japan. Everyone knows Inspector Gadget.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Turtles in the half shell - TURTLE POWER!

Care Bears
I try not to think about it.

The Legend of Zelda
A Dic cartoon of the popular Nintendo game. It's so damn amusing.

The Super Mario Bros show
Again, a Dic cartoon. And again, based on a popular Nintendo game.

Super Ted
A spin on the super hero cartoon. Featured a super hero teddy bear.

Banana-man
Similar to the above. Featured a boy who ate bananas to become a super hero.

Batman: TAS
I love Batman. How could I not enjoy this cartoon.

X-men
I can't beleive I left this out.

Might Max
A mighty kid, named Max, who journeyed into other dimensions.

Biker Mice from Mars
A gang of rock'n'roll martian mice crush land of earth. "Let's Rock and ride!"

Earthworm Jim
"Earthworm Jim... Ah I forget the rest.

The Tick
"SPOOON!"

Eek the Cat
"Really?"

Spider-man
Not the original but the 90's cartoon.

Technoman
The English adaptation of Tekkaman Blade.

Captain Simian & The Space Monkey
Best monkey cartoon ever.

Beast Wars Transformers
An awesome Transformers spin-off by Mainframe.

The Dream Stone
I can vaguely remember this cartoon but can't recall what I enjoyed about it.

Discworld
An animated series based on the Discworld novels by Terry Pratchett.

Rocko's Modern Life
"That was a Hoot!"

Rugrats
Little tots always ready for an adventure.

Aah! Real Monsters
High school for monster.

Hey Arnold!
A kid with a football-shaped head dealing with urban life.




I'll add more as I remember them.

Anyone else is free to add shows I've neglected to mention or have not seen. Also feel free to discuss any of the cartoons I've mentioned and those I have not.

Along with the X-Men series from the early 90's, we need season box sets. Now.

These were not made for the kids, so much as the comic fans. At least, earlier on they were (Batman went crap when they changed it to Gotham Knights, for the most part).

I remember most of the series you listed, some of them only the titles though.

And: Widget. All I remember is he was purple alien, he could change shape, and I loved the show.

Two anime that were important when I was young - Prince Planet and Marine Boy. Unfortunately, no-one seems to remember them now. (Not to mention The Amazing Three, which is probably best forgotten.)

I thought PP was better than Astro Boy, although it's been a long time since I've seen either. And it fell back too often on the tiresome plot device of forgetting to recharge his pendant just when he needed it (like every episode). I heard that there's some reason you never see it anymore, but can't remember what it was (licencing?).

It's a pity MB seems to have vanished into the ether, however. There was a reference to it in the anime of Excel Saga, but that's about the only acknowledgement of it I've seen.

When these series were on, we were aware that they were made in Japan, but didn't realise that they were actually Japanese cartoons - everything was "made in Japan" at the time, and we tended to assume that this was just another instance of that (like The Flintstones was produced in Sydney).

those 3 you listed there rohan were never released on tv locally here in australia if they were it is most likely that the title in question were released under another name, i think all 3 titles have been floating around in the r1 market for a few years now..

as far as i know the sydney bit with the flintstones relates to the to live action flick that was shot 5-10 years ago as for the cartoon series i'm not sure on, though i think the flintstones meet the jetsons movie may have been made downunder..

Sorry, I'm not sure what you mean - they were definitely on TV - that's the only way I could have seen them back then (this was years before VHS - back then, Super 8 was the only format you could own a cartoon in). MB was on on Saturday mornings, A3 and PP on weekday afternoons. (Kimba, I think, was on on Saturday evenings.)

I can't vouch for the Flintstones cartoon having been produced here, but I once read that it was.

since i wasn't around in the early 70's i can't comment on what was on the tv then, though i do remember watching kimba as a kid...

for those tv shows you weree talking about they may be out region 1 dvd, they could also been released under another name, as anime tends to get renamed every 10-15 years or so, that's is if there is a surviving print in existance for all 3 anime shows you are talking rohan...

Beast Wars was definately never shown on Network Ten. Beast Wars original started in a afternoon timeslot (3:30 PM I think) on Seven and later on either Cartoon Connection or the Big Breakfast on Seven.
The programming for each TV station is often different between states, but TV series/movies aren't shown on multiple channels at once. Unless you are in country area, where you get a mix of various channels, instead of all 3 commercial TV stations.

Your memory of old cartoons on TV seems quite bad, as you listed the wrong channels for several cartoon series.

most of what i've i watched was in the country of WA there was only 2 tv stations for the country then that was the ABC or GWN between 1980- late 1985, what was being aired in the city i have no clue on for the period of time as i had very limited contact with the city til we moved up in late 85.

so some cartoon's and anime shows i've seen have been aired on multiple tv stations...

as stated in my couple of posts that is a very tv legend what's been aired in WA in the 20 - 25 years on free to air tv, some series have also been on foxtel...

DinoRiders was kinda cool. I still got the vhs of the first episode i think. It's probably moulding somewhere in the back corner of our tape cupboard. It had cool Tyco toy ads on it too!!

Prince Planet, Marine Boy and the Amazing Three were all shown on Australian Tv i can remember watching them in the mid 60s, with Astroboy, Speed Racer, Gigantor and Kimba the white lion.
In fact they were the earliest Anime i ever saw (even if i wasn't aware they were anime until many years later -mid 70s)
also last time i was in Tokyo (sept 03) i saw DVD collections for Prince Popi (Prince Planet), and Tetsuwan 28 (Gigantor), next time (feb 06) i might even buy them.

Yeah, Tranzor Z had such a move. It was called "Rocket Punch". Just the lower half of his arms shot off. The arms also had razors that could slide out from both sides, and this form of attack was called "Razor Punch".

Mmmm... I remember some of those; growing up in country NSW during the 80's meant only 2 stations, so some of those I don't know.

One I've not seen mentioned is Pandamonium. It involved some kids searching for the pieces of a broken crystal-thing that when reassembled would destroy evil or somehing. There were also some Pandas that could join together to become a giant super panda.

Anyone else remember it, or know more?

Apparently there is a new Biker Mice from Mars series set for next year.

Also, does anyone remember Captain Simian & The Space Monkeys or Bucky O'Hare?

And does anyone of a clue what Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go! might be?

Biker Mice, now that was a show


Apparently there is a new Biker Mice from Mars series set for next year.

Also, does anyone remember Captain Simian & The Space Monkeys or Bucky O'Hare?

And does anyone of a clue what Super Robot Monkey Team Hyperforce Go! might be?
I remember Bucky O'Hare and Captain Simian&the space monkeys.

I remember it too. I never liked it much, though, as I recall.

I liked it as a kid, though nowadays I'd probably find it boring.

I remember when Channel 7 used to air it in the mornings.

ZOMG! My first Sticky! ALRIGHT!

Now, I know it isn't retro nor do I think it's all that popular, but does anyone else enjoy Atomic Betty as much as I do?

Gosh people what parts of Australia did you grow up in??? I was lucky enough to see a lot of the shows you've mentioned but there are some CLASSICS not yet named:

1. The Yearling:

Search or pull up some of my older posts on why this is one of the greatest shows of my lifetime! I saw this at least 2 times through on tv in about 1985. Unforgettable. Criminally forgotten, like I always say it's like Ghibli in a TV series.

2. The Wonderful Wizard Of OZ

3. Belle & Sebastian

...and that's just the anime. Vikki The Viking was also excellent (very addictive) and more will come to mind another time perhaps.

How about we list what we've been watching lately?

It can be something you catch regularly such as morning and afternoon cartoons or something that has caught your attention or even something you've rediscovered.

My list:
- Atomic Betty (ABC, RollerCoaster - Monday)
- The Fairly Odd Parents (ABC, RollerCoaster - Wednesday)
- Bounty Hamster (ABC, RollerCoaster - Thursday?)
- American Dragon (Prime, Saturday Disney - Saturday)
- The Proud Family (Prime, Morning club? - Saturday)
- Totally Spies (Ten, Cheez TV - Weekdays?)

I've been trying to unearth some Mighty Max tapes but, alas, they continue to elude me.

Loved Belle and Sebastian... didn't he have a tiney dog he kept in his pocket?

Apparently, along the same lines was the Dog from Flanders

Also... I've always thoguth the Smoggies were from the early 90s... before Captain Planet, but definitly around the whole pollution theme. I'm glad someone else remembers them too.

I recall Roger Ramjet all too clearly... unfortunately.

Also... Bullwinkle

Can't recall if anyone mentioned Smurfs and what about the Gummi Bears and their Gummi Berry juice? The cute little bears that bounce around after taking a swig!

Oh... and they did do a cartoon on the Ewoks! I think also the Gremlins.

Yup! I certainly remember it too. I was beginning to think I was the only one here that did. Also, you're probably right as I watched Smoggies during the 90's. It may not be as old as I thought. There is almost no info online about this show unfortunately.

On another note: C'mon dudes! Some of you must watch modern cartoons as well.

I know there isn't much to discuss on modern cartoons. Just list any of the shows you've caught recently.

Oh, and sadly The Fairly Odd Parents have ended it's run on ABC for this year. It'll return in 2006

Yep. Sebastian did have a dog in his pocket which I think was called Poochie. See Poochie on Belle's head below if you can!



What do we have to do to get this on DVD?

"Victor and Hugo" "Avenger Penguins" "Count Duckula" and "Danger Mouse"

I can't believe no one's said "The Real Ghostbusters". That was the best cartoon back in the day. And you call yourselves children of the 80's. For SHAME!

They don't have to be. This thread is for Retro and Popular cartoon shows.

I bought and still own many Street Shark toys.

Unfortunately many of the American toy-tie-in shows are no competition for the Japanese counterparts. The new TNMT series seems to be the most successful thus far.

Even though I had absolutely no interest in the toys I still liked that show.
