        Some greats you got there. You should get Voltron, Captain Nintendo, Super Mario Bros, Gummy Bears, Smurfs, and I could go on. They sure as hell dont make cartoons like they used to.

          Voltron is gonna be one of the one's i get next for sure. I love the packaging for it too, as the season sets come in die-cast cases.

              Jem and the Holograms....I ordered that one today. Shout Factory has the complete series out. I remember watching it along with a bunch of other cartoon shows right before school in the morning. My sister had all the dolls. The show was great and entertaining to both girls and boys.

                What the hell was that cartoon that used to come on in the 80s that was a slight ripoff of transformers where the main villain was a motorcycle and sometimes the good and bad robots united to take out someone else.

                  Here's the intro for Jem, to jog your memory a bit more Bear Jew....

                  "Jem and the Holograms" "She-Ra" and "It's Punky Brewster" were the only girl themed shows i would ever watch, and they were great.....just quality entertainment.

                      Jem was awesome! I had forgotten about it and stumbled across it on netflix. Fraggle Rock is my absolute favorite 'childhood show' though.

                      When I've gone back and re-watched some shows from my childhood and I didn't realize how dark they were. Kinda makes sense though

                        I was actually wondering if it was gobots. I remember them being mentioned in Clerks 2 being called the "Kmart of transformers"

                          I loved Fraggle Rock, it was one of my all time favorite kid shows and I think I had a crush on Red..

                            Alot of kids shows in the 80's were dark, but that's because back then they had balls....not like the shit being force fed to kids today. Thank god for DVD's!


                            Oh and yeah, Fraggle Rock was awesome, both live action and animated.

                              Yeah, alot of the kids i knew growing up couldn't afford Transformers, so they had Gobots.
