and never forget: the 80ies brought us great shows, like knightrider or the a team.
i love those shows, especially a team. they're totally trashy...

apart from that, please make them go away again, if hair bands are going to become successfull again, i think i'm gonna puke.
oh wait, i guess hair bands/britney spears ... the musicial difference (from the quality point of view) doesn't exist...

I was watching those late-night GI Joe airing a couple of months back, and yeah, they were prety lousy. I was pretty shocked, though, to learn that Star Trek: TNG stole a plot from GI Joe.

the 80's bought us Fry and That Guy. Never bad mouth them again  tongue

Also both me and Holly and various other PEELers and PEELettes were born in that age so don't you dare start bad mouthing the 80's.

Also Neighbours rules  tongue and The Simpsons started in the 80's too - 1987 if you include the shorts.

Personally I think the 00's are pretty crap so far.

I like good old 80s! Back then cars were rear wheel drive and they got V eight engine. Gas was much cheaper, Michael Jackson was popstar( I am just kidding) and everything were much better those days.

The eighties were one of the most drawn out and hopelessly pointless decades to date. Bad music, way too much transfetitation, and really really bad fads.

I remember the Thundercats. I used to watch them on one of them Saturaday morning TV programs back when I was a young 'un  smile

And I keep seeing people wearing Danger Mouse t-shirts as well Nurdy. Maybe its gonna be one of them crap new fashions  roll eyes

Aside from that I have no problems with the 80's. I was born in the 80's afterall so it was a pretty good decade for me  wink I dont remember much of it though. I was 6 when the 80's finished so I dont remember all that much about it. I remember more about the 90's  smile

I watched Thundercats and G.I. Joe. Also, the anime The Knights of Saint Seya and Fist of the North Star. 
About the last one: All the blood... Exploding heads.
I remember one ep where they had to armwrestle, and on both sides of the table there were circular saws.
I was 3, 4 or 5 years old...

Yow! It's like Tool Time gone horribly wrong!

American cars in the 80's were bad. Econo-boxes everywhere! The Mustang! It's all from the aftermath of the 70's fuel crisis. At least it allowed Asia to take a huge piece of the market.

TV wise, I watched Transformers and G.I. Joe, and preferred G.I. Joe. But hey, don't forget about the Ninja Turtles! It was the awesomest show to come out of the 80's. You cannot forget Michaelangelo.

Shoulder pads, Dynasty, man, that show sucked.  Wasn't there a plot where one of the characters was abducted by aliens?

I say good on them! DangerMouse is by far the best British children's show ever, and stands up as one of the best worldwide. All thanks to the 80's.

Yeah, if not for the 80's you wouldn't have me!!!

Why are you looking at me like that???

Brilliant thing about Dangermouse, was that there's loads of bits which are just eyes against black background.

This was because CosgroveHall had no money, and they could do hours and hours of this very cheaply.  Which was why they always had DM and Penfold in the dark.

Also this was the reason why everything was set in the Arctic.

I've got nothing against Dangermouse at all and used to watch it a lot when I was younger. When people go around wearing dangermouse t-shirts because they like it, then thats cool. Its just when people start thinking that they're the in thing and wear them for the hell of it even if they have no clue who Dangermouse is, then it becomes a crap fashion thing  smile

Apart from that, Dangermouse is great! ROCK ON!!  big grin

I really hate those Rubik's Cubes that the actual plastic was colored. It makes it impossible to peel off the stickers and solve the puzzle to the amazement to your friends. Damn Rubik's Cube.

If I remember correctly, I think www.x-entertainment.com  has an article on Rubik, the Amazing Cube (or whatever it's called) on one of its old "worst cartoons ever made" articles. It was right up there with the Happy Days cartoon, which thanks to god, I have never seen.

No, but the kicker was the talking dog: "Mr. Cool". That's the sign of a load of crap right there.

I remember Ovide Video, I think that was an 80's cartoon. Do a Google Search and you may find the theme for it.

Maybe the Rubik's video is just cleverly played in reverse, who knows.

Now Count Duckula, that was a good program!  smile
I got a Count Duckula video for my birthday when I was about 7 or something and I've still got it. A few months back I actually watched it and its pretty funny. When I was younger I never understood the humour but I appreciate it now and its a great program  smile
