The Ten Best Cartoons From The 80s

To be perfectly honest this concept isn’t all that new.   But you know something?  I was watching The Cartoon Network the other day and I was surprised at how technologically advanced cartoons are today.   It actually made me miss the good old days of animation.

Now it’s like cartoons look human.  I miss the days when I would watch cartoons.  Those days for me were the 80s.   So I figured I’d share the ten cartoons I watched most back then.

Here are the ten best cartoons from the 80s….

The Smurfs


Easily one of the most classic cartoons of all time let alone the 80s.  I can’t say I’m happy that they released a movie with Katy Perry but what can you do?

He-Man:  Masters of the Universe


I mean I think as adults we were all kind of surprised that the show is a front for homosexuality but if you can get past that you realize it’s still an awesome show.

Thundercats


These were my favorites.   I do hope that whatever movie eventually comes out will do the series justice.

Ducktales


Not only was the show awesome but it lent itself to one of the best Nintendo games of all time:  Ducktales II.

Transformers


Come on.  Like I’d miss this one?

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles


Here’s another cartoon that produced a pretty awesome Nintendo game.    Who would have known that Turtles would be that popular?

GI Joe


I was never really into G.I. Joe stuff as a kid but I can’t argue with the masses here.  If I left this off the list I’d be destroyed by you commenters.

Alvin and the Chipmunks


Granted the show literally started in the 60s but come on.  From 1983-1990 Alvin and his crew were entertaining all of us nearly every day of the week.

Inspector Gadget


Is the theme song in your head yet?  It sure as hell is in mine.   Can you believe Matthew Broderick played this guy?

Dungeons and Dragons


Frankly I loved this more on the 80s computer and the board game,  but the show kicked ass as well.

*Shout outs to M.A.S.K,  Muppet Babies, and Spiderman and his Friends
