If you’re an 80s kid like myself then this post may get you feeling all nostalgic!
Back in the old days you had to wait until Saturday mornings or once a week at 4pm on a weekday to get a fix of your favourite cartoon. You didn’t have the luxury of streaming or downloading whenever you felt like watching it back then!
I remember classic animated shows such as Transformers, He-Man and Thundercats, which where usually tied into some toy and merchandising range. I suppose that while the shows where only a limited time you could fill the void and make your own adventures with your toy Skeletor and Optimus Prime action figures.
A lot of the best cartoons have made a comeback over the decades and some have never gone away, but just evolved such as Transformers, Turtles and My Little Pony. Some even managed to make it onto the big screen with live-action motion pictures too!
80s cartoons had such a feel about them, they were great and most of the modern-day animated shows just can’t compete with their awesomeness. Check out our previous post The 10 Best Cartoons of the 80s to see what I mean!
