But the American toy-tie-ins were always way more sophisticated than the ones stemming from Japan now. Taking the two most successful, TMNT vs Pokemon, there's far more going on intellectually than Pokemon, and it's probably going right over kids heads.

Oh, me too. I totally dug that one. The theme song really rocks.

I also have a Skeleton Warrior action figure.

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.
True, I kind of consider them retro though I mean it was a fair while back when they first came out and all that though.
Street Sharks wasn't that bad anyway.
Swat Kats was Hanana Barbera but a fairly serious one still I think.

Even though I had absolutely no interest in the toys I still liked that show.
Same here I liked it over the CGI series, ick hated that one in truth.

Another mid 90's cartoon I forgot to mention was "Gargoyles". that show (along with skeleton warriors, batman and x-men) ruled.

I wish I could find some dvds of any of these.

Got all the episodes on video... but I believe I have watched it to death... so now, I'm getting the DVD pack.. yes, there are DVDs of the series. But, I don't think I'll be getting hte Pheonix Saga... for some reason, I couldn't stand that! aaah.. yes, I can go on and on about the X-Men! Sorry... I'll stop now (breathe slowly...)

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?


Oh.. cool! Poochie... speaking of Poochie... remember the cartoon "Poochie".. the pink dog with fluffly ears... around the same time as the Care Bears and My Little Pony (I love my little pony)

ANd Fuzzguitar... I'm right there with ya' in trying to get this on DVD...

I recall Gargoyles. I have a Gargoyles action figure. That was one awesome show. Season 1 has been released in America.

Batman: The Animated Series is probably my favourite cartoon from my childhood. I really, really want the DVDs for this series. We don't have the season collections like they do in America.

X-Men was great. I wouldn't mind picking up the DVDs for this.

Does anyone know if the Justice League is available on R4?

I unearthed some old tapes today. On them I found Spider-Man, Gargoyles, Beast Wars and Street Sharks.

Man, they don't make cartoons like they did then. Honestly, not much compares to what we had back them. Gargoyles blew me away.

The rest were pretty decent - EXCEPT! Street Sharks. Which is possibly one of the dumbest cartoons I've ever witnessed.

Also, I remember Conan The Barbarian series. I hated that show. I also didn't like He-Man very much either.

Oh, thanks Kirben. It's a wonder they don't release the Teen Titan DVDs here. Teen Titans is more popular, right?

Agreed... they don't make cartoons like they used to... but different generation.

Agreed - Street Sharks was rather pitiful.

No one mentioned Teenage Mutant Ninga Turtles! Way cool!

I loved Danger Mouse. I still have the story arc where the earth gets covered in custard and DM and Penfold accidentally fly off the edge of the universe. Comic gold, seriously.

Also, does anyone remember Johnny Quest?

As for popular/current cartoons, my favourites are Angry Beavers and Invader Zim Very Happy

Edit: I've been struggling to remember a series that used to be on ABC (around the same time they were playing Tintin). It was about a chinese boy and a european(?) girl who were born at exactly the same hour/day, and when they held hands they could conjure some mysterious power. Had something to do wtih the Moon Goddess I believe. I remember loving the show but my memory is absoluetly shot when it comes to recalling any details. Does it sound familliar to anyone?

I not long recalled Discworld. I love that series!

Death was the best character of all.

Oh, and who could forget Earthworm Jim!

I didn't know Earthworm Jim started out as a video game character. Interesting.

Yet another Silverhawks free thread, how does this happen?

I loved Ulysses 31 and always wanted to see the Discworld stuff.

Unfortunately I'm not familiar with either Silverhawks or Ulysses 31. Before my time I guess.

Feel free to tell us more about it.

Their is another thread about Silverhawks on the board which is great but it's basically about a group of bird themed cyborgs who just happen to be great muso's they have generic fights with a bad guy named Mon'Star. It was the cartoon made before Thundercats and had the same voice talent etc.

http://madboards.madman.com.au/viewtopic.php?t=18003

Ulysses 31 is a fantastic French animation about a 31st century Ulysses character zooming around the universe trying to get home to his wife before she has to remarry. I think it mainly follows "The Odyssey" ie Ulysses kills the Cyclops and Zeus punishes him and the crew by stranding them with no direction home only it's set in space.

As per usual with me, I'm about to mention three shows that are NOT Anime, are NOT popular and were on the ABC over the last ten years or so.....

Orson And Olivia - Brother and sister street kids. Can't remember much more than that. Last seen, I think, in 1994.

Mot - This kid has a big monster named Mot living with him. Crazy adventures ensues. From the makers of the above cartoon, altho I only know this coz they snuck in a picture of them as a background "gag". Last seen 1995.

Tupu - Feral girl living in Central Park in NYC and the Mayor's son is the only one who knows about her. Similar in style to the above cartoons, but I don't think it's from the same studio. Last seen in 2005, so there's bound to be info on the net, right? Wrong! One fleeting reference to the fact that it was in production in 2003. I'm crossing my fingers that the ABC will repeat this again soon.
___________________________________________________________

Hey, I've got strange taste, OK? My fave cartoons of the mid 90's were "Twins Of Destiny", "Rocko's Modern Life", "Aaahh!!! Real Monsters", "Victor And Hugo", "Animaniacs", "Batman: The Animated Series" (which, if I remember correctly, was just titled "Batman" on screen) and the endless repeates of Merrie Melodies and Looney Tunes cartoons which, alas, have ended.

Now let's go back to the 80's and I liked "He Man", "She-Ra", "Gummi Bears", "Duck Tales", "Kimba The White Lion" (1960's dub), "Fat Albert And Friends", "The Mysterious Cities Of Gold", "The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz", "Belle And Sebastian", "Jimbo And The Jetset", "Bananaman", "The Read And The Blue" (claymation), "Quaqua" (an origami stop-motion animation duck!), "Ulysses 31", "Battle Of The Planets", "The Banana Splits" (people count this as a cartoon, but only 7 of it's 22 minutes per episode were animated, featuring the Arabian Knights and the Three Muskateers), "The Merrie Melodies Show" (and I just LOVED watching the scrathed film, too!), "Huckleberry Hound", "The Flinstones", "The Jetsons", "Ghostbusters" (not the "Real Ghostbusters" but the Filmation series screened on the ABC), "Willow The Wisp", "The Magic Roundabout", "The Mr. Men" (narrated by Arthur Loew of "Dad's Army" fame), the old, old stop-motion animated version of "Noddy" narrated by Richard Briers (of "The Good Life" fame), "Count Duckula", "Danger Mouse" (in original 5 minute format and the 10 minute format), "Superted" (The UK version - the Amrican version sucked!), the endless repeats of Merrie Melodies and Loony Tunes cartoons and, although this is 1990, it was made in 1989 so it counts as 80's in my books: "The Completely Mental Misadventures Of Ed Grimley" starring Martin Short as Ed Grimley..... it ran for a mere seven episodes, was hideously unpopular (I was the only one at school who liked it - and I loved it!) and even the very annoying live action segment "Count Floyd's Scary Stories" (which sucked more than a marathon of "Teletubbies" would!) did not stop me from watching it!

I remeber Mot and I've seen Tupu. I liked both those shows. Tupu has all the makings of a great kids show. Strange it was unpopular. Perhaps it's a few years late?

Tutenstein was a similar show. It also only got little attention.

For those who don't know (which is probably everyone here!) "Tutenstien" was commissioned by (but not produced by) The Discovery Channel for their "Discovery Kids" section, to be played back-to-back with "Kenny The Shark".

"Tutenstien" is currently playing on Nickelodeon, and is available on DVD from Magna Pacific.

For me recently I found an old one of sorts not the Super Mario Brothers cartoon.
But instead "Super Mario World" cartoon series on DVD $10 per DVD I got all 3 of them in the store, took them home and watched the episodes.
It wasn't bad Yoshi was cute, funny, refered to things in 3rd person and always ate things.
The animation was ok considering the time it was made.

The plots were simple all episodes were 10 mins long, 5 episodes per disc.
There were some Captain N the Gamemaster show on some of the episodes too.

I would recommend it only if you liked the old Mario Brothers show(like me)

I've noticed an increase in old cartoon shows making it to DVD. They practically dominate the kid's section now.

I picked up a two DVD pack of Batman: TAS. I've watched volume 1 so far.

I spent most of today riding around town looking the Samurai Jack DVD. I must own it.

C.O.P.S, B.A.D (Bureau of Alien Detectors) and my all time favourite "The animals of farthing wood".

I remember those.
I also LOVED the MIB series that was cool and funny.

I was wondering if anyone could tell me the names of a couple of shows I used to watch on the ABC when I was younger. One had a big red ball of clay that was continuously battling with a little blue ball of clay. The other was about a guy who was drawn out of a single line (like a silhouette). I don't know if he talked in a foreign language or just spoke jibberish, but every time he said something, a hand would come onto the screen and draw something for him to interact with.
They weren't main shows, just five minute fillers, sort of like AEIOU.

Also, can anyone tell me where I can find an informative site on the old Wizard of Oz cartoon, that's in English?

Sounds like Morph and La Linea.

I don't know what the French title was, but I'm pretty sure the ABC subtitled it as "The Red and Blue". There was great piss-take of it on the Micallef Programme

Thanks very much for La Linea. That was indeed the show I was trying to remember. As for the balls of clay, you're right about the Micallef Programme lampooning it a few years ago; although, I had forgotten about that too.

Sounds like Spartakus and the Sun Beneath the Sea.

Centurions is currently screening Monday to Thursday on Boomerang by Cartoon Network, along with The New Adventures Of Captain Planet, The Real Adventures Of Johnny Quest and The Fantastic Four at 8pm, billed as Boomeraction!

La Linea is available to download (probably illegally) from some site that I have forgotten the URL of..... the link provided here will take you to Wikipedia

I could go on and on and on - especially having seen "Morph" and "AEIOU" mentioned..... anybody remember "Portland Bill", "Captain Pugwash", "Will Quaqua" (spelling could be wrong, but it was a little kid duck and he always had wasp porridge for breakfast), the old Wstern Woods films (icluding "Pierre" who didn't care and the original "Courduroy"), "Gumby".....has anybody noticed that nearly everything I've listed was on the ABC? It's probably coz I hated commericals!

And don't forget David The Gnome which is now available on DVD in the UK

.....and will be in my collection in just a few weeks!

It's TV time!
