I am a child of the 80’s and to be honest I think that the 80’s and some of the 90’s had the best kids tv programs when compared to what’s on now a days. (kor how old did I sound then). So here is my top 10 (in no particular order – I know it goes against the idea of a top ten but this is my blog so ha), maybe it’ll bring back some memories for you too:
- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – A top cartoon, managed to get 3 turtle action figures back in the day, I really should have kept them, as apparently the original 1’s are now collectables.
- Thundercats – A top cartoon, I can’t really remember much about it but I do remember it was fab.
- The Racoons – I remember watching this most saturday mornings before Going Live or Live & Kicking started.
- Count Duckula – A fab program I used to watch when I got home from school. Voiced by David Jason
- BananMan – Can’t really remember much about it but a fun cartoon.
- The Raggy Dolls
- Inspector Gadget – A top cartoon and a very recognisable theme tune. Also in addition to this it’s worth looking up a chap called Greg Patillo and his beat boxing flute playing version of the opening theme tune. Check him out on YouTube
- The Jetsons
- Johnny Bravo – Very 90’s a fab cartoon character, very cool.
I’d love to know some of your favourites. Why not leave a comment telling me your favourite cartoons as a child.
