This can be after school shows, stuff you watched while you were eating dinner, Saturday morning cartoons, movies etc.

lets put it this way....if it was on the T.V., your parents knew were to find you.

I have so many things I loved to watch but to kick this off I'll only name one

Kung Fu Theater on Saturday mornings....there was just something wicked cool about the way those guys could throw their voice 2 seconds into the future.

seems like a good thread to ask
long shot but im sure someone remembers
cartoon circa early 80's
it was in space with some kid flying thru space looking for his dad. the bad guys were part plant and part vehicle. like one bad guy was a black car with a buzzsaw on the top that grew out of a vine. lots things like that

That weapon will replace your tongue. You will learn to speak through it. And your poetry will now be written with blood.

A bit UK centric but I used to love

Danger Mouse

Count Duckula

Trap Door

Knightmare

you can't tell from the intro but this was a kid's game show involving virtual reality, the contestants had to go through a number of quests and puzzles and things to win the game....or fall though a hole and die

Press Gang

The BBC Narnia series

I can also remember watching Battle of the Planets very early in the morning, along with Jason and the Wheelies, The Secret Life of Gnomes, Defenders of the Earth, Transformers. Dungeons and Dragons, oh and ThunderCats too!
ah nostalgia :yay:

I'm pretty sure that was Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors

(which for some reason I thought was called Jason and the wheelies :lol: maybe it was a different name here or everyone called it that for some long forgotten reason :lol: )

That seems vaguely familiar...
I guess it was whatever was on depending what age you are.
For me it was.
G.I.Joe, He-Man, Transformers, Thundercats, Ducktales, Animaniacs/Tiny Toons...
I will still watch any (good) superhero cartoon to this day.
