  1. GGGGIIII JOEEEE!!!!! Sure, transformers was nice, but you gotta love the endless cast of characters from GIJOE. So many badguys, everyone has guns and lasers and bombs and nobody ever manages to HIT anything with them.

    Robotech was by far the best overall for me thou.

    I also liked the toy connections despite the fact that is what so many cartoons were made for. I LIKED the idea of being able to get figures of my favorite guys and gear and having my own adventures. I should have ran a GIJOE RPG game now that I think of it.

    1. We are having issues with Feedburner in that it is not registering our feed anymore, which in turn affects our iTunes account. Hopefully this will be resolved soon. In the meantime you can listen here, on Stitcher, or on Spreaker.

  2. Growing up in a house where westerns and pirate shows were top priority, I feel the need to mention two of my top cartoons. Marshal BraveStar and Pirates of Dark Water. These two shows gave me some ideas for games and plots.
