    Old cartoons

    Post  WhiteBoy on July 28th 2010, 11:15 am

    Speaking of old superhero cartoons (in another thread)...I gotta share this. We rent Scooby Doo DVD's for the kids all the time because they love Scooby Doo (and rightfully so). Well we got one or two in that are of the Scooby Doo/Dyno Mutt hour where it has one episode of Scooby and one of Blue Falcon/Dyno Mutt. Sorry, I have a pretty silly sense of humor, but DynoMutt is a little over the top for me. Anyway, the kids love it and have been going around pretending they're Blue Falcon, etc...it's pretty funny to watch them.

    Anyone remember these cartoons?

    Blue Falcon rocks! Can't remember why, but he was the bomb. Thought that dog was always taking up space, though.

    Was that the same as or related to Battle of the Planets? I can't keep up with American versions of Japanese cartoons that may or may not have been renamed in the UK...

    I watched a few episodes of this again recently on late night boomerang. Loved it as a kid and I think it's a property ripe for an update with a serious tone. A comic book or dark toned animated movie would be the bomb.

    I'm not sure if G-Force was the same as Battle of the Planets. I think Whiteboy said it was. It was also called Gatchaman.

    Was the Star Trek cartoon really that bad? I’ve always wanted to watch it but never got around to checking it out. As a Star Trek fan I must watch all of Star Trek, no matter how painful it gets. Right?

    Duck Tales was great.

    The Star Trek cartoon was actually pretty good. Like most cartoons, it was a victim of limited animation. As an example, I remember one episode where Uhura is running, but her arms are held tight to her side.

    Let's get esoteric, does anyone remeber th Kids Super Power Hour with Shazam?

    Not much love for the Star Trek animated show? Sad And I thought it was up for an award at one point (a positive award, not razzie type). I remember Thundarr. I also remember another show called Galtar and the Golden Lance, which I still think has a pretty dramatic opening title sequence.

    No one's mentioned some of the great classics of the 80's? G.I. Joe, Transformers, He-Man, Thundercats? Robotech, Voltron?
