Try again the real Jonny Quest was from 1964 and one of the greatest shows ever, and the original 24 or 25 episodes still hold up.....all the other stuff was crap. 60s cartoons the BEST.......

Space Ghost, Herculoids, Birdman, Shazzam, Samson, The Impossibles, Moby Dick, Frankenstien Jr, The Beatles Cartoon, Rocky and Bulwinkle, Couragous Cat, Mighty Mouse, Galaxy Trio, Flintstones, The Jetsons, the Amazing Spiderman (the GREAT one from 1967 everything after rubbish), Marvel Super Heros, Clutch Cargo.....god it goes on......the 60s was the golden age!!!!!!

Anyone remember the newspaper comic Arnold?

If Kevin McCormick had stayed with it, he would be a bizillionaire by now. He killed off Arnold after 6 years and that was that.

He became a pastor of all things with his wicked sense of humor. Last we heard in Rochester MI the hometown of someone named Madonna Ciccone.

1960's. One of the first prime time cartoons (was on ABC).

And it was Johnny not Johny. (Edit no, it is Jonny. )

P.S. Has anyone seen Bandit?

Fearsome Forehand 09-17-2012 06:22 PM

1980's: Pee Wee Herman.

Crime Story with Dennis Farina. Awesome show.

And who could forget Lynch's Twin Peaks? Weirdest network show ever.

What's Happening is from the 1970's: Rerun is dead now as is the mother and Shirley. Everyone else is still around. Sort of a lame show but there were only 3 networks so not to much choice then. There was a forgettable spin off in the 1980's What's Happening Now.

I remember a bunch of BBC TV shows (mostly comedies). Yes, Minister.
Fawlty Towers. Sherlock Holmes.

There was this German detective serial, dubbed in English, quite good except for the nasal voice -- IIRC the same one nasal voice was used to dub all the male voices and it got on my nerves.

Then there was another German serial about some funny games played between different cities of Germany.

Then there was Star Trek (ugh!).

Just double checked the box set...it's Jonny!!!!

Oh and Bandit is sitting right next to me here.....I've had 3 dogs carry that name.

Hee hee. Mighty Isis. :p
Superfriends?

Aren't lots of these on Nick-at-Nite and Cartoon Network now ...?

gavna 09-17-2012 09:14 PM

80s TV shows...............

Miami Vice

Totally changed the tone and look of TV and movies......also helped revitalize Miami and make it cool again......city had huge image issues and lost its place as a goto destination in the 70s.

Crime Story (also made by Michael Mann and his Miami Vice team) was great
Quantum Leap
Twin Peaks
Cheers
Magnum PI
Married with Children
The Simpsons
Night Court
The A Team

I won't rehash those mentioned so far...here's a few more

Sitcoms: King was The Cosby Show; honorable mentions go to Golden Girls and Family Ties.

Drama/Detective/Prime-time Soaps: Murder She Wrote, Hill Street Blues, Dallas (started in 70's but "Who Shot J.R.?" aired in '80), Dynasty, 21 Jump Street, and Matlock.

Too bad the reboot of the Thundercats was so short-lived.

Great first episode but then it was all down hill from there.

Those in charge of the new series were so focused on character development, they completely forgot the importance of action.

The new Lion-O had nearly zero strength, agility, and fighting skills. Anyone can sneak up on this cat from behind and capture him. Well, most of his enemies (now bigger and stronger) don't even need to sneak up on him. They can subdue him with the greatest of ease.

The new Tigra is portrayed as a better fighter than Lion-O but still no match for any of Thundercats' enemies. He resorts to using a gun.

The new Cheetarah looked really good in the first two episodes, but in subsequent episodes she gets ambushed and captured easily time and time again. And what's with all her flirtation?

The new Panthro loses both of his arms? And has the worst fear of heights?

Lastly, the Sword of Omens is an inferior product to the Sword of Plundaar (Mumra's sword) and is made from scrap metal left over from the Sword of Plundaar? The focus shifted from the Sword of Omens to a number of "stones" that can arm Lion-O with the silliest looking armor. Even when armed, there's still no action worth watching. They should have just copied the fight sequences from the old Thundercats.

Re-run the 80's Thundercats. I'll watch that over the new one any day.
