Saturday Morning Embarassments (younger members?)

Postby Quatermass » Thu Sep 01, 2011 10:43 am

Okay, so, children of the eighties and nineties, are there any Saturday morning embrass-...ahem, cartoons that you've come back to later and thought, how the hell did I like this?

Well, recently, coming back to the Transformers franchise, the old G1 cartoons, I thought, how the hell did I ever enjoy this crap? It makes even the worst of Doctor Who look like Shakespeare.
I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.

Got a full set of Battle of the Planets carttons and couldn't believe how awful it was. Pure crap. On the other hand watched some of The Mysterious Cities of Gold and it was as great as i remembered. :D

To be fair, Battle of the Planets was a bit of a hatchet job of an original Japanese series. They cut out all sorts of profanity and graphic violence and added that stupid R2 D2 wannabe robot to fill in the gaps. :lol:

Tried Ren and Stimpy again recently. Grosser and less funny than I remember. I'm getting old!

Hell no. Dogtanian is great . I have the special edition with the Karaoke bouncing ball sound track.
Classic.

Nearly as good a sound track as Ulysees 31
