Those great shows.

Some of the lesser remembered shows of my childhood.
March 12, 2007
Sure, everyone always talks about G.I. Joe, the Transformers, Thundercats, but what about the lesser talked about cartoons that brought us so much joy on weekday afternoons and Saturday mornings?

How about Jaycee and the Wheel Warriors? Who can forget Jaycee and the gang running across the universe trying to avoid SawBoss, while looking for his father?

How about the Visionaries? A time when technology had failed mankind and an era of magic had regained control. I personally always wanted to be the bear.

Of course, no article would be complete without those two great British imports brought to us courtesy of Nickelodeon. I am talking about Danger Mouse and Count Duckula. Many a rainy Sunday afternoon I spent with these two great shows from across the pond.

If you were a superhero fan, maybe you watched Captain Planet, or Defenders of the Earth, or maybe even the Inhumanoids.

Now some of you might recall in a previous article, I bashed some Japanese cartoons. Some of you might think that I don’t like Japanamation. (As it was called when I was growing up) This is not true. I loved G-Force (Battle of the Planets) and of course, Voltron.

Now, there were some cartoony shows as well. Ducktales was great, as were the Gummybears. Disney had some great cartoons in the early 90’s, Darkwing, Chip ‘n Dale
Rescue Rangers, and Gargoyles.

But I would have to say my favorite cartoon of this time was M.A.S.K. I guess little boys just love cars with guns on them. I always wanted a car like Matt Striker’s. I can’t believe all cars today aren’t gull wings.

In closing, I know this article isn’t the most laid out and the best prepared. It is not intended as such. It is a journey down a side path of memory lane. I hope this article rekindles some memories of things you have forgotten. Feel free to add other shows in the user comments as well. Thank you.
