As a child of the '80s, we had a wide range to choose from in terms of what cartoons we could watch. I had tons of favorites, but below were my absolute faves. Add your memories to the comments section and tell me what your favorite cartoons were!:
Rainbow Brite was a cartoon I would watch over and over. I had dolls and coloring books and bedsheets and everything imaginable of this cartoon.
The premise of the show was Rainbow Brite and the Color Kids fight to protect the world's color from the evil Murky Dismal and his inept sidekick, Lurky. Rainbow Brites real name was Wisp. She also has a talking horse named Starlight in the show. As a child I wanted a horse like hers, haha. The color sprites mine color crystals, which Rainbow uses to add color to the world. Twink is the head sprite who often accompanies Rainbow on her adventures.
He-Man And The Masters Of The Universe:
This show can still be seen on Quibo and is shown at 12AM. I still watch this show to this day. This show has tons of sexual innuendos as I am now finding out. Its hilarious to watch now and to see what we didn't see as kids. The storyline and plot of the show is as follows:
In the mythical land of Eternia, the kingdom is fighting a great evil in the form of Skeletor and his minions. Prince Adam secretly uses the powers granted him to transform himself into He-Man and his scaredy-cat Cringer into the armored Battlecat. His famous battleshout is, "By the power of Greyskull, I Have The Power!" His friends and allies include Man-At-Arms and his daughter Teela, The Sorceress, and red-cloaked magician Orko.
She-RA, Princess Of Power:
She-Ra was another favorite of mine as a kid and can still be seen on Quibo, directly after He-Man. She-Ra was He-Mans sister and the storyline is as follows:
Princess Adora was kidnapped as a child and taken to the planet Etheria, where she was brainwashed to do the bidding of the evil Horde. He-Man entered Etheria to look for his lost sister, Adora. Eventually she learns who she is, the real nature of the Horde is revealed, and Adora turns against them. She gains the Sword of Protection, which allows her to turn into She-Ra. As She-ra she demonstrates incredible strength, speed, and agility, can telepathically speak to animals, and can heal with a touch. Adora chooses to use her newfound power to free Etheria from the grip of the evil Hordak and his Horde. Her allies include Glimmer, Bow, Lightrope, Madame Razz, and Kowl. Episodes included a "Where's Loo-kee?" segment, where children were encouraged to find the creature in a scene. At the end of each episode, Lookee would show up with a positive message for kids.
The Berenstain Bears:
I was obsessed with The Berenstain Bears as a kid and had coloring books, and books galore of them. I would have them read to me every night as a child before going to sleep and my favorite one was the moving day book. The plot and storyline of the show is as follows:
Papa Q., Mama, Brother, and Sister Bear live in a tree in Beartown. Other characters include Grizzly and Gran, the kids grandparents, and Raffish Ralph and Weasel McGreed, whose evil schemes often end up interfering with everyone's plans. Based on the children's books by Stan and Jan Berenstain.
