    Last week I posted best sandwich,which was pretty cool sounded like peanut butter was a winner!
    This time Im wondering bout the best retro cartoons,I was born in the 80's and I still think the best cartoons were back then and also my daughter who's 7 has watched some of them online and has been hooked!
    Funny looking for them online and listening to the theme tunes......ahhhhhhhhh reminising!!!
    Heres my top 3

    1,Captain Planet
    2,The littles
    3,Denver the last dinosaur

    Yeah pretty sad and there were heaps more but I think these were the ones I ALWAYS watched.

    The 80s were awesome, certainly one of the best times to be a young kid.

    Were the Super Mario Bros cartoons done in the 80s? If so, they're number one for me. Then Transformers. Then...hm...Defenders Of The Earth.

    1. He-Man. Two male synonyms strapped together. What could be better thana cartoon where a wimpy guy becomes suddenly invincible and ends the show with no effort what-so-ever. He-Man could kick the ass off modern heroes.

    2. Dungeons and Dragons. 4 kids fall into an alternate dimension after riding on a rollercoaster. What's really interesting is that the show remained entertaining only becaause of how thoroughly useless the characters were. They spent most of the show running away from things.

    3. Thundercats! Part man, part cat. This team of sci-fi fantasy warriors spawned the most widely remember LINE in a theme song.
    Thun-der, thun-der, thun-der, thun-der CATS!! (Kick ass!):D:D:D
     
  4. Joshua Tree

    Joshua Tree Remain In Light

    1. Hong Kong Phooey
    2. Whacky Races
    3. Captain Caveman

    yeah, the best cartoons were definitely in the 70's man :)

    I knew I was getting old when I found out a co-worker of mine was 18 - and had been born in 1990. He'd not even been alive in the 1980s.

    Where is my pension book? :(
