10 awesome cartoons you might have forgotten about

Take a trip down memory lane to revisit the shows you grew up with

Ahh the 80s and 90s… decades when we couldn’t really remember anything else besides cartoons, because that’s all kids thought about.

Admit it, you woke up early on weekend mornings just to catch the weekend cartoons, which is why we put this nostalgic piece together.

There were too many to fit into one article though, so look out for part two next week. Read on, and try not to miss your childhood too badly.

Biker Mice from Mars

We don’t know why the Curiosity rover hasn’t found them yet, but we’re pretty sure there’s life on Mars. And they’re giant mice dressed in leather, riding motorcycles to fight evil fish-men.

Captain Planet and the Planeteers

A cartoon meant to make children care more about the environment, we’d like to think Captain Planet was somewhat successful, and still unforgettably entertaining. We still don’t know what Heart does, though. 


A cartoon way ahead of its time in terms of humour – and maybe slightly too adult for kids – we couldn’t help but love Wakko, Yakko, and Dot. A treasure trove of zany, irreverant humour with great characters.
