Please watch in 360p. If you see a problem, press "Show more" below and read the FAQ. The end of the video has credits that will give names to the shows used here. Thanks for all the wonderful comments and ratings! I don't know how long this video will last though, lol.
To all the 80s Kids: Enjoy my tribute while you can and may it bring back a flood of happy memories like running home after school or waking up early Saturday mornings to see these great shows. Smile (even shed a tear), your childhood is waving at you and still lives ^_^
Q: Some of the dates in the credits look off...Are they right?
A: I got the dates from Wikipedia back in 2007 so it's the fault of the editors there if the credits are wrong. And besides, the video's been up here for years; changes can't be made no matter how big of a deal people make of the dates x)
Q: Why are Superfriends and Captain Planet in the video when their years aren't in the 80s?
A: I watched Superfriends in the 80s and I saw a preview show of Captain Planet in 1989 so I let them in. The same goes for Tranzor Z (originally Mazinger Z) which first aired in another decade and country, but finally reached where I lived sometime in the 80s.
Q: I thought Dragon's Lair was just a game?
A: One afternoon, they showed the whole game played through seemlessly on cable. Good enough to be cartoon for me (even if it was brief) so I say it makes the cut. After the upload, I've been told by fans of this video that it was an actual series so hey that works out :)
Q: Why is the quality of the video so rough?
A: It's a combination of my inexperienced exporting settings and old VHS cassette tapes.
Q: How come you don't respond to comments like you used to back in the day?
A: I only stop by in youtube for a brief moment because I got lots to do in the day. But my responses would pretty much be the same for your awesome comments: "Thank you so much and it was my pleasure making this for you." =)
Q: You forgot some! What about M.A.S.K., Centurions, Voltron Vehicle Force, Silverhawks, Turbo Teen, Pawpaw Bears, etc., etc., etc???
A: What you see in the video is what I could get at the time and also what went best with the music x)
Q: Will you ever make a version of this tribute with some (if not all) of the missing 80s cartoons people ask you to include?
A: If this gets more than 5 million views and I'm still around, I'll seriously consider starting another version for you all ;)
Q: What game is that at the end of the credits?
A: Guild Wars (the ninja was what I played as while my friend who helped me find shows preferred a red elementalist).
If you liked this video, go to my channel and you can check out the others i put together and subscribe to receive notices on new ones that i come out with. Take care, everyone!
