damn forgot Bionic Six... and don't worry Russ, Im getting to the 60's and 70's next, aside from the H-B collections and a few random releases, these are the most overlooked eras when it comes to tv animation and it's a shame because the 60's especially turned out so many quality series. I'll get to that though.

I would love to see Hulk Hogan's Rock N Wrestling again. I hope DIC puts it on DVD. I only saw one episode and it was more then 10 years ago but it was awesome it had Hulk Hogan and the other wrestlers busting ghosts in this haunted mansion. As a huge ghostbuster fan it was cool to see.

Looking at this list, I can't believe how many of these I don't have any memory of! Shirt Tales?

Where these on the big 3 networks? I thought I was a voracious Saturday morning cartoon watcher, but this list is knocking me out!

Also, is Galaxy high the weird outer space Fonzie/happy days cartoon? No one I know remembers it, but I used to love it. the Fonz had a gang, and one of them looks like Sid vicious, with spiked hair and a pair of those new wave sunglasses that looked like cylon eyes.

No, Galaxy High was about two kids from Earth, Doyle and Amy, who were chosen to attend GH. It only lasted two seasons.

Opening theme lyrics:

Doyle was a high school star
everybody thought he'd go real far.
But he didn't give a lick about the classes he took
You know he just wasn't interested in his books.

Amy was the smartest girl in school
not very popular, not very cool.
Two kids will be chosen from Earth
to go to school at Galaxy High.

Traveling millions of miles through space
To go to school in a far out place
Amy is the sweetheart, Doyle's got a lot to learn.
Here at Galaxy High!

The show included characters like Booey Bubblehead, whose head was transparent, and Beef Bonk, who wore a shirt with the phrase "Earth Sucks" on it.

Boys outnumbered girls at GH, so Amy had everything provided for her, but Doyle had to get a job.

What about Mighty Man and Yukk, Goldie Gold and Action Jack, Fangface?
I did'nt see those titles. Posted Image

I always wanted to see the human version of Princess Ariel, she was the coolest! They should've made a live-action movie/tv series of Thundarr. Or better yet a game!Posted Image

I never went anyway on saturday morning until Spider-Man And His Amazing Friends/The Incredible Hulk and Thundarr were over! And that included going every other week to toysrus to spend my $5.00-$10.00 allowance on Star Wars figures. Posted Image
These came on late in the morning about 10:00-11:30 in my area I think, which was great since all the other channels had sports or news on at that time.
Disney please put Spider-Man And His Amazing Friends on DVD!!!!


I will NEVER buy ANY politically corrected/edited DVD!

Tory... Wow!!!

I've added all your requests, making this the most unrealistic DVD wishlist ever composed! Posted Image

The He-Man specials as well as the Police Academy series were already listed up there, I always thought Captain Caveman was a late 70's production... I've added that as well!

As for Betty Boop, that "special" was merely an odd cut & splice compilation project of colorized theatrical shorts from the 1930's so I've decided not to add that since the animation itself was not produced in the 80's, nor should it ever have been made... I've gotta draw the line somewhere!

:}


Oh, and Randy - all the series' you listed could be found under "The Plastic Man Comedy-Adventure Show"!

Alf Tales

This was a whole other cartoon series which (IMHO) was better, featuring somewhat fractured fairytales (ala Jack & The Beanstalk as told through the eyes of Alf) Alf, the live action puppet, would introduce the cartoons.
