Guest Post: 80's Cartoons with The Chatty Mommy

Hi everyone! I am The Chatty Mommy and I am so happy to be here today at Wattlebird.

My kids have been enjoying some old cartoons on some throwback networks lately. Imagine my 7 yr. old's surprise when I knew the JEM theme song. I might just be cool after all.
So, without further ado:

Denver the Last Dinosaur

Alvin and the Chipmunks

Duck Tales

The Jetsons

  1. LOVE!!
    jem and the holograms, smurfs, danger mouse and thundercats were my faves.

  2. Love it! We played Ninja Turtles in my front yard all the time. I was Michaelangelo, because my dad had a pair of wooden nunchucks that I had no skill with. Injuries abounded. It was rad.

  3. haha! so funny! i have been working on a post about how much i am loving the 'teletoon retro' station. my current obsession is 'scooby doo'. can't get enough!


  4. wat about she ra???? oh man....those were awesome cartoons!!!!

  5. Oh my gosh I loved all of the above. Turtles was actually my favorite and to this day I will argue with others on who the best turtle really is. Haha.

    Also I was watching some fabulous JEM reruns the other day. I wanted to have pink hair because of her.

  6. My favourite is definitely turtles, I have a special place in my heart for Donatello!

    I've only seen bits and pieces of Jem and Rainbow Brite when I was younger but I might have to get all the series and watch them now :)

  7. Aww! I used to watch almost all of those shows! Although I wasnt a child of the 80's I still watched them and enjoyed them very much as a kid! Great Post (Oh and Rainbow Bright seriously was the best ever!):D

  8. I used to love SMURFS, MUPPET BABIES, GARFIELD, and of course TMNT... I had a "thing" for April O'Neil.

    Like Jana, I also pretended to be Michaelangelo. My friends would come over and we would unmercifully beat the crap out of one another... until the pizza showed up!

  9. I loved Jem! in canada we had a cartoon called THE RACCOONS, that was my favorite!

  10. Ha! I remember going to the TMNT movie in the theater as a kid! Love them.

  11. Ahhhh, walk down memory lane:-) Goodness, what happened to all of the good cartoons?! xoxo

  12. I loved Rescue Rangers! Were they 80's or 90's?

  13. omg!
    Love them all! But favourites were The Thundercats and Ninja Turtles. Love the 80s!!!!

  14. How about the monchichis? I loved Rainbow Brite!

  15. Loved Smurfs (have to see the movie...), Rainbow Bright, Jetsons, Flinstones and does anyone remember Fraggle Rock!?


Leave a note! I love to hear from you!
