The 80's were a great year for kids cartoons. When we all used to race home from school, kick off our shoes and sit in front of the TV, normally before doing our homework and watch our favourite program. As a child of the 80's, looking back over the cartoons that where watched whilst growing up has not only brought back some brilliant memories, it has filled my head with all the\u00a0 catchy theme tunes from each program (The Raccoons theme tune is still a favourite). So sit back and reminisce as it's time to relive your childhood with the awesome cartoons we all watched in the 80's. Willo The Wisp Narrated by the late Kenneth Williams, Willo the Wisp is a spirit who tells us what's been going on down at Doyley Wood. Doyley Wood is where friends Mavis Cruet, Arthur, The Moog, The Beast, Carwash and Evil Edna live. We have vague recollections that this was always on just before the news. \u00a0SuperTed Super Ted was not your normal teddy bear, after being given some cosmic dust from Spotty Man and being brought to life, Mother Nature gave him superpowers to help him fight evil in the guise of Texas Pete. The Raccoons With one of the best cartoon theme tunes ever, The Raccoons was about a family of raccoons who lived in the Evergreen Forest which is threatened by the greedy Cyril Sneer and the adventures they had. Danger Mouse Danger Mouse is the greatest secret agent in the world. With his trusty sidekick Penfold, they must follow Colonel K's orders and save the world. The Mysterious Cities of Gold The mysterious Cities of Gold was a fantastic cartoon that followed the adventures of a Spanish boy called Estaban who goes on a voyage to the new world to find the elusive city of Gold with his Father in the 1500's. This was so popular that if you sent off for the song sheet you could sing along with it with Phillip Schofield in the Children's BBC Broom Cupboard. If you can't remember, watch this nostalgia inducing clip before carrying on! Dogtanian And The Three Muskerhounds Dogtanian was the sword fighting dog we all used to love. Together with his three Muskerhounds they form a team of the finest sword fighters in France to protect the King. One for and all for one, Muskerhounds are always ready! The Raggy Dolls Sad Sack, Dotty, Hi-Fi, Lucy, Back-To-Front, Claude, Princess and Ragamuffin made up the Raggy Dolls. They were the imperfect dolls in Mr Grimes toy factory that end up in the reject bin but come to life when no one is looking. Count Duckula Count Duckula was the short, green, vegetarian Vampire duck, living in Castle Drakula\u00a0with Nanny and Igor. Inspector Gadget 'Go-Gadget-Go', Inspector Gadget the famous cyborg police inspector. With a love for Gadgets (the clues in the title), he has lots of cases to solve with the help from Penny his niece and her dog. He-Man and the Masters of the Universe He-Man's mission is to save the planet Eternia and protect the Castle Grayskull against the evil forces of Skeletor. It also had some amazing toys to go along with it too after all the show was made around the toy line, luckily it was awesome! ThunderCats This sci-fi cartoon follows the battle of a group of eight cat-like humanoids who live on a planet called Third Earth and battle the evil forces of Mumm-Ra. Bananaman Based on the life of nerdy boy Eric Twinge, the boy who lived at Acacia Road. Whenever Eric\u00a0eats a banana he turned into his alter-ego Bananaman. BraveStarr Set in a wild west frontier in the future, this classic cartoon was a big hit in the 80's with a toy line as well. You can read more about it here. Transformers Two opposing factions of transforming alien robots, engage in a battle that has the fate of Earth in its balance. This was wildly popular in the 80's and the toys were hugely popular and it got its own animated movie. Dennis Dennis was the lovable brat, who constantly used to wind up his neighbour Mr Wilson. In the US he is known as Dennis the Menace but over the in the UK its just Dennis we presume because it would have confused Beano fans. Alvin and the Chipmunks Brothers Alvin, Simon and Theodore are the chipmunks who can't help but get into trouble. They live with Dave (their adopted human) and along with a stint in Hollywood these squeaky voiced delinquents are still entertaining kids today. Ducktales The globe-trotting, treasure hunting, money making adventure of billionaire Scrooge McDuck and his nephews was great fun to watch after school. You can now watch them all again if you have Disney+. The Real Ghostbusters The cartoon series that followed the hit film Ghostbusters follows Peter, Winston, Egor and Ray as they get rid of ghosts, this time with the help from Slimer. The Care Bears The Care Bears live up in the clouds in a place called Care-a-Lot. They travel around the world on Missions in Caring.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Michael Angelo, Donetello, Leonardo and Raphel are the pizza loving Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles who live in the sewers with their master Splinter. Together with their friend April O'Neil they save the world from their arch enemy Shredder. TMNT was a global phenomenon back in the day and is still going strong today. Denver The Last Dinosaur Denver the skateboarding dinosaur who was released from his egg by a group of friends who then have to protect him from concert promoter Morton Fizzback who wants to use the dinosaur to make money. She-Ra She-Ra is the most powerful woman in the Universe who has to defeat the Evil Horde so the planet Etheria can be free. Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers Chip and Dale are the chipmunk detectives the 'Rescue Rangers' who used to get up to mischief with their friends Gadget, Monterey Jack and Zipper. Pole Position Two teenage stunt car driving siblings do amazing stunts in their robot talking cars and once they've done this they go on and fight crime. An Absolute classic with a theme tune nearly as good as The Raccoons. What was your favourite\u00a080's cartoon? Have we missed it out? Let us know in the comments below.
