    I'm not sure if this one's been mentioned, but I watched it pretty regularly.

    Spoiler:



    The characters were all NES characters, and the lead was a real guy with a zapper that was warped into their video game word. Pretty awesome.

    This was a big one for me too. Sure I'm not alone there.

    I've actually been trying to remember what this show I used to watch when I was really young was called. It was before cable, and we all just had our local signals. Anyway it was a cartoon with fantasy subject matter, and it had 4 main characters. One was a male warrior/knight, one was like a big barbarian with a club, one was a female warrior with big heavy armor, and the other was a wizard who floated in a little basket, kinda like yoda did in the new trilogy at times. It was also a set story line across a few seasons, so each episode was to be continued like the X-Men show was. I wish I could remember the name. It was awesome. My brother and I watched it every Saturday morning.

    This was a really good one too:



    Each of them had their own special armor that I want to say gave them powers somehow related to their individual personalities? I can't remember. There were a bunch of guys with swords and cool armor though, and that was really what mattered.

    So many forgotten shows are coming back to me now that I'm thinking about it. I bet I could fill a page of this thread.

    Wow :shock: never thought I would see this thread again.

    I remember seeing something about that show a couple of months ago when I walked by a garage sale. Should have picked it up, I thought it wasn't going to be that good.

    King Arthur and the Knights of Justice.

    I saw a VHS copy of it at garage sale, it was around 5 dollars.

    I'm not sure how entertaining it would be for a grown man. Or I guess however old you are. It was cool when I was 10 years old, but I'm not sure I could sit and watch it now. A good example of that is the X-Men cartoon. I remember that cartoon being absolutely amazing. It felt like it had really mature elements, like it had story lines from the comics where they killed characters permanently and brutally, and the love triangle between Wolverine, Jean Grey, and Cyclops was really prominent, but maybe a year ago I downloaded the entire series and tried to watch it and it really was meant for a younger audience. The nostalgia was enough for about the first season, but then I lost interest and never watched the rest.

    The Tick is still the best cartoon ever made though. If you ever get a chance to watch that one do it. It's timeless

    ^What?

    Yeah, I think you need a child's perspective to see it as a more mature series. That's really what made them good they were made for kids but they were able to work in a few mature elements to make the kids, at the time, feel like they were being treated with a little more respect.

    Yup. I like to think that the cartoons we had in the 80s and 90s had a lot more depth than some things that are around these days. Partially because people working in creative fields that targeted a young audience didn't have to walk on the PC egg shells they do today.

    I would have to completely agree with you on that. Hell, if I ever have a kid I'll show them the old cartoon batman show and Animaniacs. Those shows made my childhood.

    I never watched much of the Ninja Turtles I saw the third movie and never looked any further into the craze.

    Looney Tunes, you can't go wrong with Looney Tunes, that's all I can say about it.

    The first movie is really the only one worth watching, which can be said about a lot of things. It really could have just been a stand alone film, even if there had never been a cartoon or comic. It introduces the characters, and the whole setting of the story, and has some deep character development. Has drama with some emotional depth, as well as action. All in all it really felt like the core Ninja Turtle experience. See it sometime if you decide to give it another shot. The cartoon was a whole other story though. It was probably nearly as clutch in my childhood as the G.I. Joe franchise.

    I'm sure I could watch the first movie now and enjoy it, while the second, third, and however many they've made since really catered more directly to children. Got all silly and comic and nonsensical.

    I was never into G.I. Joe but I'll have to look for a copy of the original movie somewhere and give it another chance.

    The G.I. Joe toys and cartoons were amazing in the 80s. Some of the most amazing toys I had. Check this thing out. It was 8 feet long I think? The vehicles and figures were crazy. I had the chinook helicopter, and it was huge. Sat like 15 figures in seats and on mounted guns and things, and it sits on like 1/5 of that things deck.

    When I was growing up we had a lot of wooded property, and there are endless possibilities for toy wars in place like that. My friends and I used to build these huge intricate bases for them that would have like places for them to parachute from trees off of, and ziplines we'd make out of fishing line, rubber bands, and paper clips that would connect tree bases together. We had a lot of fun.

    I just rewatched the first Ninja Turtles movie for the first time in probably a decade. It's not quite as serious as I remember it, but I stand by what I said about it being worth watching if you're not familiar with the series and want to be. It's a fun movie. The only real cheese is right in the beginning when they're first introduced and every time pizza is mentioned, but that stuff is clearly there to help children identify with them. If you can get past that stuff then I think you'll enjoy it.

    One of the best old shows on Cartoon Network, in my opinion.
