Saturday Morning Cartoons: 1980s Volume 1 DVD Review

Saturday Morning Cartoons: 1980s Volume 1 DVD Review


Synopsis: Action. Intrigue. Celebrity stars. Adorable critters. Dude, Saturday mornings were awesome! Be a couch potato and relive the trippendicular 'toons of the way cool '80s! Go mental with Martin Short's immortal Ed Grimley, kick butt with Chuck Norris and save the day with Mister T. Take it medieval with Dragon's Lair and Galtar and the Golden Lance, then travel to an Earth reborn from cosmic destruction in Thundarr the Barbarian. For laughs, Tex Avery lends his genius to The Kwicky Koala Show (Avery's final work), and The Flintstones Kids will crack you up. Need to chill? Cuddle up to The Biskitts and Monchhichis for mega-cute action. No kidding: this wicked 2-Disc Collection is totally boss.

Review: This collection IS totally boss, as the above synopsis states.  We've reviewed the 1960s and 1970s Saturday Morning Cartoons DVD collections in the past, but now we're getting into more familiar territory.  These are the cartoons that I watched as a kid.  Well, they're the obscure ones, at least.   The 1980s were rife with amazing animation from Thundercats and Ghostbusters to He-Man, GI Joe and Silverhawks.  This set collects a lot of the b-class cartoons, the ones that never get DVD releases!  

We're looking at a DVD collection here that features (wait for it) Mr. T!   Thats right, the Mr. T. Cartoon.  Not only that but Chuck Norris?!  There is nothing more wicked than a DVD set that has Mr. T. AND Chuck Norris.  You just can't beat that with a stick.  There are also a few good quality cartoons that made it on here like the often overlooked Flintstone Kids.  The disc has something for everyone and most importantly as a parent, my kids can watch all of these!  

I highly recommend this to any animation fan and most certainly to anyone that grew up during the 1980s.  Its a great flashback and a fun piece of history to own.

Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars
