now are you talking about the first groovie goolies, with Sabrina the Teenage Witch, the second, where it was all about them, or are you talking about the third, anthological groovie goolies, where the goolies were exclusive to host segments, where they introduced lesser cartoons, including "Fraidy Cat" "Wacky & Packy" and animated versions of "Gilligan's Island", "My Favorite Martian", and "Lassie"?


Neither. Here in the UK they were packaged along with the Banana Splits.

Damn, I never got to see "Drac Pack" as I was 2 years old at the time and couldn't remember anything. However, if by some chance an anime-influenced redo was introduced, I'd be so into it.

Chris Columbus was also involved with "Galaxy High", if you can believe it.

Another one that comes to mind is "Lady Lovely Locks", which makes me wish they came to a satisfying end with the cursed prince. I felt so bad for him, and her being so oblivious to the fact her dog is actually a cursed prince...I just wanted it to end with her breaking the spell!!!! That's the one thing that bugs me about American cartoons-they never have an ending most of the time.

But, as for me, I've been digging on the live action stuff from the '70s, as whacked out as hell.

OK here’s one I need help on remembering. It was a Dutch cartoon (I think) where everything was drawn in a scrolling sandbox. The music had kids singing... la,lala.. Every ep was only a few minutes long and always ended in the sand hero running back home.


Does anyone know what that show was? I can never remember the name and so far no one knows what the hell I'm talking about. Any help?

Defenders of the earth rocked...

Fractured Fairy Tales was part of that show. Damn, that was hysterical. Always ended with a pun on the classis ending ie: 'and they lived snappily ever after'.

Remember Mr. Peabody's really bad puns? Ah, I miss the wee white one...


Hold on a second. I never watched Underdog or Tennesee Tuxedo, but I distinctly remember watching Dudley Doo Right, Mr. Peabody, and Fractured Fairy Tales as part of the Rocky and Bullwinkle show. Somebody better esplain.

Ok, so the talk about the Yamato in the Capital Ships thread got me thinking about Star Blazers (aka Space Battleship Yamato). I did love this show as a kid, my parents rented the videos for me all the time.

Has anyone rewatched these lately, do they hold up?

We're leaving Mother Earth
To save the human race
Our Star Blazers!

Searching for a distant star
Heading off to Iscandar
Leaving all we love behind
Who knows what dangers we'll find?

We must be strong and brave
Our home we've got to save
If we don't in just one year
Mother Earth will disappear

Fighting with the Gamilons
We won't stop until we've won
Then we'll return and when we arrive

Need a little help with trying to find a couple of cartoons and wondered if anyone could point me in the right direction as to where i may be able to find them... They are seperate episodes, so it might not be too easy...

One of them is an episode featuring Droopy where he had to look after a cat and for some reason he wasn't allowed to make any noise, as such he kept going to the outskirts of the town and screamed (usually in pain) for one reason or another... he also expressed his screams down the phone at some point too... bit vague really but not as vague as...

There was a cartoon where a guy was in prison and he dug himself a tunnel out of the prison and ended up in a truck where he hid inside a television that was then taken to the wardens house.... He had to pretend to be doing lots of different programmes as the warden turned the television over... it was very good, especially the part where he dug the tunnel and had to count the number of spoonfulls of mud that he took out, including eating a few when he almost got caught...

Would be really happy if someone knew either of these and could point me in the right direction... Thanks for the time...

This one is Deputy Droopy. It's essentially a rehash of another Tex Avery cartoon, Rock-a-Bye Bear.

The other one kinda rings a bell...it sounds like another Avery toon, but I'm not sure.

Well, I think many Old School Toons Rockz.... I don´t think about what toon is better than others, ´cause i can say every toon had the value to be remembered for all.

About that, I can say too the Transformers movie isn't cool because Optimus isn't that truck I like from the toon of '84.

It is all...

Inhumanoids is the shit! I have them on DVD!

The series was so fucking cool, very Lovecraftian and some parts not really ment for kids.

If the 80's toon to movie trend continues, I'd love to see a live action INHUMANOIDS..

The show was produced in Quebec, and was called Les Voyages du tortillard

It played on TVO in the 70's as The Secret Railroad, and was essentially The Yellow Submarine of children’s television - the first time I took lysergic acid diethylamide I felt like I had been there before...thanks to huge portions of this toon served to me daily from the age of 3 to about 9.

Very true. In fact, when I heard the rumblings about 1-18-08 being a potential Lovecraft/Cthulu story I was psyched(since proven wrong), then I thought it might be an Inhumanoids movie. Most likely not, however. Pity, since Tendril I think was influenced by the character Cthulu.

Thing is I'd never heard of Cthulu or of Lovecraft's work until a few years ago(aside from the Metallica song Call of Cthulu) I often wonder if such a film could be possible..........

The best toons on Nick were Lost Cities of Gold (I need this on DVD), David the Gnome (just cuz it was fucked), Danger Mouse/Duckula (duh) and Belle & Sebastian.

No, I am not forgetting about Bananaman. Rather, I AM forgetting about it, because it was just NOT GOOD.
