Saturday Morning Cartoons: 1980s, Vol. 1 on DVD

While we cannot get all the box set of the shows we loved as kids, Warner Bros keeps putting out these compilations of Saturday Morning Cartoons that certainly whet my appetite. The 1960s and 1970s were great sets, but the one I have been waiting for has finally come out, the 1980s! I picked mine up last week and watched it on Saturday morning it was like traveling back in time.

According to the set:

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!

    Dragon’s Lair really brought a smile to my face when I watched the second disc this weekend, good to see old friends. I also really enjoyed the Galtar episode, that particular show was not carried on the stations in my neck of the woods. The opening had a very Don Bluth feel to it.
