10 80’s Cartoons We Couldn’t Live Without

Remember the television shows we all used to watch growing up in the 80’s? Get ready to take a step back into the past to revisit some of those great shows that we just couldn’t live without. In no particular order:

10 – Inspector Gadget

Who didn’t love inspector gadget? When I was a kid I wanted his hat that had a helicopter in it that was awesome!

9 – Transformers

I had the toys and watch the cartoons religiously when I was about 5 or so. Watching Optimus Prime save the day, day in day out never got old!

8 – Ghostbusters Animated Series

Ghostbusters! na-na-na-na-na….nanananana!!

7 – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

No anchovies dudes!

6 – Voltron

I remember the gang, Lance, Pidge, Captain Keith, Sven…i loved Sven, maybe because he was funny to me at the time. He was a Norwegian fighter pilot who piloted the blue Lion…who doesn’t love a show with lots of mech type machines…bit of a rip of Transformers, but we loved it all the same!

5 – Banana man

Go Bananaman, save us from the horrible apple man. I tell you what, this show was awesome when I was 3 or 4 but looking at it now has made me realize how crap it really was. I could come up with a better show after 20 beers! (Table cloth vs kitchen sink!…its a hit!)

4 – Captain Planet (early 90’s but it was awesome wasn’t it!)

Captain Planet. He’s a hero. Gonna take pollution down to zero! At least the show had some educational value. 20 years later, who would have thought all that info we got on the environment would hold up so well!

3 – The Jetsons

This show taught me so much at such a young age. It was the first place I learned the number 1 fact of life. You work for your money, then you get home and it’s your wife’s to keep!

2- M.A.S.K

M.A.S.K! Another one of those “I want to be like Transformers” shows. But I liked it, with the flying cards and helicopter bikes, it was great. Another show based on an 80’s comic book.

1 – The Simpsons

The Simpsons…everyone know the Simpsons. Starting in 1989 this show was absolutely responsible for moulding the 20 something’s of today’s society into what they are today. Most people found their sense of humour through the Simpsons and so many jokes in the show made their way into popular culture. As the show continues to this day (some episodes more questionable than others) all in all perhaps the best animated series of all time!
