I was born in 1987, hence 2 years ago mario, but I did get born in a time where other good franchises are born such as:

-final fantasy
-mega man
-ys

Awesome stuff.

Dude, now I know why I didn't find women very attractive until circa 1991 (I was 10), the ideal woman in the 80s was butt ugly. Too much makeup, eye shadow, and fake crimp-curly hair. I'm glad my sexual coming of age was in the 90s.

And dude, I'm a metalhead too... but go back and look at those pictures of Bruce, Dio, Geoff Tate, and all the big metal gods during the 80s. They may have sounded like the smooth, sleek edges of Thor's mighty hammer. But they LOOKED like dorky man-whores in plastic pants.

All visual media during the 80s went to hell, too. It was a great decade... but only made better by keeping your eyes closed.

Why is everyone forgetting that the 1980s was the best decade ever for cartoons?  Need I mention Transformers, Voltron, Mighty Orbots, Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors, MASK, Mysterious Cities of Gold, Ulysses 3030, Beverly Hills Teens, Muppet Babies, He-Man, GI Joe, Jem, BlackStar, Bigfoot and the Muscle Machines, Visionaries, Inhumanoids, COPS, Dungeons and Dragons, Star Fleet, Spiderman and his Amazing Friends, Bravestarr, Bionic Six, The Raccoons, Centurions, Dragon's Lair, She-Ra, Sky Commanders...

Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors

Oh, my. This, thank you. I thought this was a fever dream I had when I had Pneumonia as a kid. Nice to know it actually exists.

I was going to mock the list till I saw Jem and the Holograms

Fun fact.  Speaking of 80's rock/pop sensation, Jem....  sound familiar?? (it should, it's relevant to Jem).  Your fun fact of the day.

Nah.  I'm indirectly one.  My father has been one since they won the cup before this year (so...since 1960).  Basically, in my house, it was "either love the Blackhawks, or you're sleeping outside with the dog...!"

Jem was a great cartoon.  Some of the plotlines were heavy (like when the orphanage the band supported burned to the ground and one of the kids nearly died in the blaze).  Because Jem was a girls' cartoon and gender identification was so important back when I was a kid, I was a closet Jem fan.  I think any cartoon based on Hasbro toy in the 1980s was great: Transformers, GI Joe, Jem. 

And Wild Arms 3 is one of the few times where I prefer the English vocal intro the Japanese one. 

Oh and how could I forget about one of the best things Disney ever put on TV: The Gummi Bears!  New Adventures of Winnie The Pooh were great too.

I'm 32 (born in '78) so I lived on 80s cartoons.

Because everybody knows that it was the 90's was the greatest decade for cartoons ever. The Adventures of Batman and Robin, Gargoyles, Pirates of Dark Water, SatAM Sonic the Hedgehog, The Tick, Animaniacs, Freakazoid, Earthworm Jim, Mega Man, Aladdin, Goof Troop, X-Men, Superman the Animated Series, and Batman Beyond just to name a few...

Plus thanks to improving technology we also had computer animated shows such as Reboot and Beast Wars.


Also say what you will about 80's fashion but 90's fashion wasn't much of an improvement either (Overalls and FUCKING FLANNAL!!!).

In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

Someone earlier mentioned weird Michael Jackson as from the 80s and all I can say is that the 80s had Thriller and that negates EVERYTHING bad about Michael Jackson.
