It’s another #throwbackthursday and today, we are going down memory lane to those cartoons we watched back in the days on our old school TV set. Yes! Remember those TV sets with funny buttons that look more like a cupboard? (LOL). Let’s #throwback to those cartoons we watched.
Voltron: Defender of the Universe is an American animated television series that features a team of astronauts who pilot a giant Super Robot known as “Voltron”. Initially produced as a joint venture between World Events Productions and Toei Animation, the original television series aired in syndication from September 10, 1984 to November 18, 1985. Remember the theme song? We do.
Jonny Quest is a cartoon franchise that revolves around a boy named Jonny Quest who accompanies his scientist father on extraordinary adventures. The franchise started with a 1964–1965 television series and has come to include two subsequent television series, two television films, and three computer games. The love for this cartoon was epic back in the days.
Atom Ant is a superhero ant who operated out of an anthill in the countryside, where he possessed such things as a mainframe computer and exercise equipment. His powers mostly consisted of the ability to fly, super speed, incredible strength, and invulnerability. Did you shout the catchphrase “Up and at ’em, Atom Ant!”? He was often contacted by the police, who sent him out on an assignment.
“SuperTed” was created by Mike Young in 1978 for his son to help him overcome his fear of the dark (super dad he was). Later Mike decided to put the stories into book form. Superted originally was a bear from the woods who was also afraid of the dark, until one day Mother Nature gave him a magic word which gives him superpowers and transforms him into SuperTed.
The cartoon revolves around the adventures of three girls with superpowers: Blossom (pink), Bubbles (blue), and Buttercup (green) using their powers to defend their town from villains and giant monsters.
The series centres on Johnny Bravo, a muscular, boorish, and dimwitted self-proclaimed womaniser with a pompadour hairstyle and an Elvis-like voice.
This popular animated series from the mid-1980s tells the saga of a fearless, globe-trotting special missions force called G.I. Joe, which works to combat Cobra, an organisation with an evil commander bent on world domination. Whenever trouble breaks out around the world, either on land or sea, G.I. Joe is there, ready to battle for ideals that America values.
Pinky and the Brain
Many of the Pinky and the Brain episodes occur in the 1990s at Acme Labs, located in some large American city underneath a suspension bridge. Pinky and Brain have genetically enhanced laboratory mice who reside in a cage in the Acme Labs research facility. Brain is self-centered and scheming; Pinky is good-natured but feeble minded
Cow and Chicken
The cartoon focuses on the misadventures of two unlikely yet somehow biological siblings: the sweet-natured, dim, ecstatic anthropomorphic Cow and her cynical older brother Chicken. The two are often caught in escapades with their flamboyant enemy, the Red Guy, who disguises himself under various personas to attempt to scam the two.
The Pink Panther
The Pink Panther is a series of comedy-mystery films featuring an inept French police detective, Inspector Jacques Clouseau. The series began with the release of The Pink Panther (1963).
