Saturday Morning Cartoons: 1980s DVD

Back in the ’80s, you were a kid and just about the only thing you wanted to do was sit in your pajamas and watch cartoons. Now it’s the 2010s, you’re a full-grown adult and just about the only thing you want to do is… sit in your pajamas and watch cartoons.

But whatever, we call it animation now, which makes the whole thing way more mature.

To relive the root of your addiction, check out the new 2-disc DVD compilation Saturday Morning Cartoons: 1980s ($19.98) a four-hour reminder of your Saturday morning stare-a-thons. The animation lineup includes: Mister T, Chuck Norris: Karate Kommandos, The Completely Mental Misadventures of Ed Grimley, The Flintstone Kids, Monchhichis, Kwicky Koala Show, Galtar and the Golden Lance, Dragon’s Lair and the always awesome Thundarr the Barbarian. Although each cartoon sadly only has one episode on the discs, it’s still a nostalgia marathon. Remember how weird it was that Mr. T coached a gymnastic team? Remember how Thundarr’s blond bob haircut totally got copied by that punk He-Man? (From GeekChicDaily)
