          So many good ones were missed. The Get Along Gang, Shirt Tales, Kissyfur, Foofur, The Popples, Fluppy Dogs. To name a few.

              The Jetsons when they brought back the series in 1985. (Same year I was born.)

              The comparison of the show from both decades is pretty remarkable.

              60's:



              80's:

                There still must be some hidden gems... I remember back then a buddy and i counted up to over 100 shows from that time. Anyway..

                I'm looking for the titel of a show or someone else who maybe can shed some light on this vague memory: I remember a japanese/american show with some girl as protagonist - and there was a strange mysterious cat leading her way into some hidden underground structure - AND there was music - later being used by Tarantino in Kill Bill. That's all that left after 30 years. It aired in europe on Sky Channel or Sky One.

                Does this ring a bell for someone?

                  Gobots
                  Series based on a line of Transformer knock-offs aimed at young children, as they were very easy to transform. The show basically followed the same plot as Transformers, but was aimed at younger children.


                  I know it's already been mentioned in this thread, but Gobots were definitely not Transformer knock-offs. The Gobots were released in the US in 1983. Transformers came out in 1984.

                    Hi everyone, do you remember the Mr.T cartoon (Live action Mr. T would talk at the end of the program on ethical choices and other dilemmas the team face in the episodes).
                    A Saturday morning show called the "Comic Strip" I believe it consisted of Karate Kat, Tiger sharks, and Camp Mini Monsters.
                    I also remember:
                    Big Foot and the Muscle Machines
                    The get along gang
                    Incredible Hulk
                    Glow worms or glow friends

                        Hi I'm new.
                        Thanks so much for making this list! I was trYing to remember an old 80s cartoon about teenage monsters. I was going nuts! I found this list and the answer was Gravedale High!

                        I read the rest of this list and I realized that some of these shows are actually Japanese anime.


                        Robotech is Macross in Japan.
                        Voltron is Go Lion in Japan.
                        Transformers: Has the same name in Japan.

                        This show could be considered as "technically" anime since the animation was done in Japan.

                        JEM: The animation was done by Toei if I remember correctly.

                            Guys, help me out.

                            When I was a kid in Mexico, there was this cartoon show about a little knight that rode a grasshopper, and his squire was a roly-poly bug (he might’ve been a ladybug, I honestly don’t remember). They would go into battle with other bugs. I don’t think the cartoon itself was Mexican, but I could never really tell, since I don’t remember them actually speaking; they always made funny noises to each other, kinda like the Minions, in Despicable Me (so they might’ve been speaking a different language). I watched the show in the late 80’s, but it might’ve been older than that.
                            I really wish I had more info to go off of, but this is all I remember. I vaguely remember what the knight looked like, so I put a picture of him here, in hopes that someone can help me identify him.
                            Help me out, dudes! And thanks in advance!

                            -Joe

                              I vaguely remember a show in the 80's called Jamie and the magic torch. I haven't seen that mentioned. Also wind in the williws. Was the animated version in the 80's or 90's?

                                Possibly the French cartoon by Jean Image,

                                  What about The Puppy's new Adventures? It's so rare today! I know some of you remembered the Scooby and Scrappy Doo/Puppy Hour.

                                    Dont forget The puppies new adventures, which became the puppies further adventures.

                                      The Simpsons
                                      first aired in 1989
                                      The adventures of this famous family in yellow started in the late 1980s. 'Nough said!

                                      What the list doesn't contain (yet) is a cartoon I used to watch as a kid on Sunday mornings (on DJ Kat with a "K" and a baby Linda de Mol). It was about this blonde boy and his very-R2D2-robot friend (and maybe others kids?) solving stuff. Can anyone help me identify this cartoon?

                                        Possibly this series from the creator of

                                          I don't think anyone mentioned the 1982-1984 Little Rascals animated series yet. Same for Richie Rich. I really liked the animated Rascals greatly, even though it got low ratings (though it did run for two seasons on ABC). It's a shame it never aired in the U.S. since ABC cancelled the series in 1984, though I did learn tbat the real life actor who played Porky in the Black and white series filed a lawsuit against Hanna-Barbera Studios for using his likeliness without his consent, and I am not sure if the series not seen in the U.S. since 1984 has anything to do with the lawsuit or settlement conditions. Either way, I really hope the Little Rascals animated series gets a DVD release, though it's wishful thinking for now.
