It was so beautifully 80s.  Future archaelogists could just watch an episode and know so much about that epoch.  Reboot was a pretty decent show in relation to videogames as well.


Yeah but the 80s were evil.
Use quote boxes damn you! Like this ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Faugh! The 80s werent evil. Well, the two years I spent living in the 80s didnt seem too evil... maybe because I only had basic perception skills :P

Back on topic: There was a donkey kong cartoon? What the crap? The old DK or the new DK?

You're only 16? I thought you were in your 30's. Anyway, the DK thing had a lot of the newer characters, like Diddy Kong and King Kroc.

actually i think pokemon was a card game (or something) first, ad then it was a show, and finally a computer game... whatever.  these things tend to bring in huge revenues no matter how much loathing they inspire.

I have been told
not by one but two of my lovers
that I've got a heart of gold
but I'm unable to share it with others
They call me a poet who'll never have a poem
a tiger with no taste for bone
I'm the wonderful wonderful wizard who's waltzing alone

Ahem, I am in fact 17. 1990 does not qualify as the 80s. That wiki is blank by the way.

Pokemon was a game first, the cards definitely came after, as did the tv show.
Proof: The original games (red and blue) are highly inconsistant with the TV series which is why they then brough out yellow version to cash in. Pokemon was probably a non-dubbed cartoon in japan before the game was released in the US or Europe, causing confusion.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Oh, whoops. For some reason, the last parenthesis was not included in the URL. Here it is again:

I'm sure it was already mentioned, but the Legend of Zelda cartoon was just released on DVD.

That show and Mario were my childhood life. Mainly because my mom played Zelda and Mario throughout her pregnancy and my whole childhood, so we go way back.

Wow, this makes me realize how long it's been since I was an active user here.

Damn, I don't remember ever watching more than half the cartoons mentioned here. I do have to say I have found memories of Captain N.=)
Also, I remember watching some really good Street Fighter cartoons, so I guess they can't ALL be bad.
Currently playing:

Rocket Slime (DS)             Guitar Hero II (PS2)
Resistance (PS3)               Zelda (Wii)

So many good games, so little time...
