The Toons of Yesteryear... Nostalgia

A random conversation at work this evening, sparked of a rather nostalgic moment for me and my coworkers as we recalled the cartoons of our childhood. Yes, the days when we were carefree and the only important things were playing with our friends and of course watching cartoons! I can still recall heading home from school as the bell rang and making a mad dash with my friends to get home to watch my favorite cartoon, and waking up early on Saturday mornings for the cartoon block. I just can't help that feeling of nostalgia as I look back in mind at those days, even though it makes me realize how old I am now.

As a kid of the 80's and only had one television station at the time, Jamaica Broadcasting Company (JBC), I was exposed to a mixture of cartoons from the 80's and some from much earlier. So here are my top 10 greatest cartoons from my early childhood, you can click on the links to see the intro for the cartoons as the post would be too long if I added them all:

  1. Silver Hawks
  2. Transformers
  3. Thunder Cats
  4. Jayce and the Wheel Warriors
  5. He-Man and the Masters of the Universe
  6. Flintstones
  7. Tom & Jerry
  8. Popeye the Sailor
  9. Tiger Sharks
  10. Pink Panther
Those are my top cartoons, but I know you all used to watch at least few cartoons in your younger days, so what are your favorite cartoons?

All my favs are in your top ten Stunner, except for GI Joe and MASK.

ooh my gosh, one of your best blog posts ever. A few days ago me and my friends were having a heated debate on which old school cartoons were the best. I dounloaded many of the starting themes and shared them with my friends on their mp3 players.

Of course my vote went to Thundercats!

WOW... I love that panther ...WOW...
