Reliving Days of Old...

By the power of Greyskull!.....

When I was young, every time I heard that line it would send a chill up my spine and I felt like I was right there beside He-man fighting Skeletor and his henchmen. As much as I spent my days wandering through the fields and forests of Brownville, I spent my fair share of time watching the best cartoons of the last few generations. He - Man, Voltron, Thundercats, G.I. Joe, Those were the heroes of my youth. (Hell, I even dressed up as He-man for my 4th Halloween. I made a mighty fine one too I might add)

The cartoons of today are despicable to say the least. The villians are far from villainous and their worst crime is stealing some poor kids ipod or knocking out a cellphone tower. Whatever happened to trying to destroy the universe?

Over the last year or so and many hours perusing the internet and different stores (plus a little help from netflix) I have found whole seasons of my favorite cartoons. I have spent a few hours of late reliving my childhood and I've gotta say, it's GREAT! I never did realize how poor the cartoons of the youth today were until I could compare them to the lates and greats of my time.

So what I want to know is what were your favorite shows growing up? What was that special show that you could watch and it would totally make you forget about the world around you? What epic animated story made you feel like you were the gallant hero?

If you haven't relived some of your fond childhood memories lately I hope this post will inspire you to take a step back and dive in head first. Trust me, you'll love it!

Thundercats, Hoooooooooooooooooooooooo!
