So I've slowly been introducing my son (age 5) to the awesomeness that is 80's cartoons (some 90's too). There have been some hits and misses along the way.

Hits
G1 Transformers
M.A.S.K.
SilverHawks
Bionic 6
Gargoyles
X-Men: TAS

Misses
Dino Riders
C.O.P.S.
Go-Bots (no loss there)
ThunderCats (I'll have to try this one again)

To Be Watched
Centurions
Visionaries
Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors


I know there are tons more. What am I missing? What else can I show him?

You're missing three of the four biggest cartoons of the 80s: GI Joe, He-Man and Voltron.

Also, Inspector Gadget.

Don't forget Super Friends. It ran from 1973-1986 so it must have had something going for it.


The following stores are all stores that I've dealt with or have become friends with through the forums and I highly recommend them all.

If we're dipping into the '70s, I'd also suggest Space Ghost, Herculoids and the original Jonny Quest, one of the greatest cartoons ever.

Believe it or not those are all cartoons from the 60s not 70s - Now for a good 70s cartoon - Scooby Doo Where Are You

A lot of what I would have suggested has already been listed (Pirates Of Dark Water, Skeleton Warriors, Space Ghost, TMNT,)
How about:
The Tick, Hulk Hogans Rock and Roll cartoon(whatever its called. its been awhile), Swamp Thing, Toxic Avenger, Pac Man, Garfield, New Adventures Of Mighty Mouse, Conan The Adventurer, Captain N The Game Master, The Super Mario cartoons, Sonic The Hedgehog, Robocop, Tales from The Cryptkeeper, Rambo. Odd how many R rated violent movies got turned into cartoons.

a lot of the old disney shows were good

Chip n' Dale Rescue Rangers
Duck Tales
Tale Spin
Gummie Bears

Dungeons and Dragons was good and still holds up

Not many stations carried Star Blazers but that was pretty good along with Battle of the Planets those were early 80's late 70's

Pac Man and Q bert had cartoons too which were okayish

I second Ronin Warriors. You might have to play to what he likes , b/c I just plain don't know what a little boy/girl these days would like.
