Having grown up in the 80’s I have an affinity for all things from that great decade. As a kid , one of the best things I can remember about the 80’s is the great selection of Saturday morning cartoons that was on television. Classics such as Transformers, He-Man and the Thundercats and they often tied in with some kind of toys and merchandising which every kid pestered their parents for. Some of these cartoons have made a comeback over the last couple of decades and some have even made it onto the big screen in recent years.

I really don’t believe that modern cartoons of today can live up to the awesomeness of classic 80’s cartoon series! In this collection you may find some familiar and maybe not so familiar faces but hopefully they will kick off a feeling of nostaglia for those who grew up in the great 80’s.

    Thank you for such a amazing read. I wish that I had more enjoyable but I would like to add something to the theme. If you enjoy old cartoons I have came across on to a site that gives you the ability to watch cartoon jem for free. It’s pretty cool. I just watched a pup named scooby-doo. You guys should check this out.
