I was a little old for Saturday morning cartoons in the 80s. I was in my 20s. But I caught the occasional episode and usually had fun for the fifteen minutes or so that it lasted. I remember the Mister T cartoon, the Hulk cartoon, the Spider-Friends cartoon, and the Hulk Hogan cartoon. Did you watch any of those? What other Saturday morning cartoons from the 80s did you watch? Or, if you were too young to watch them when they first aired, did you catch any of them on DVD or the Cartoon Network or Nickelodeon or anywhere else a vintage cartoon might be found?

I especially liked the Mister T cartoon. It was inspirational. There was always some sort of "you can do it" or "do your best" or "don't give up" message. I don't recall watching the Hulk Hogan cartoon but I bet it was equally inspirational with probably the same sort of messages.

Oh wow - there was even a Chuck Norris cartoon in 1986.

I even watched the Smurfs now and then. And Thundarr the Barbarian.




I became a fan of real wrestling in the 80s but not the cartoon, I never saw it. Likewise I was an A-Team fan but never saw the Mr. T cartoon. I was a big fan of Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends. I liked the Stan Lee narration. I liked that they had an episode where a video game character come to life. I liked the Swarm, a sentient bee colony.

I mostly watched Transformers, G.I. Joe, Voltron, Real Ghostbusters, and Tranzor Z. We had a local show where they ran the old Looney Tunes, Chip N Dale, Woody Woodpecker, etc.
