Popular 80's Cartoons

Cartoons From the 1980s

Remember the great 80's cartoons, especially the catchy 80's cartoon theme songs? I personally liked Ducktales, Inspector Gadget, Rescue Rangers, and Muppet Babies. But I know that He-Man, Jem, G.I. Joe, Thundarr the Barbarian, and Transformers were also very popular cartoons from the 80s. Does anyone else remember David the Gnome? The dad from Happy Days, Tom Bosley, did the voice I think.

80s cartoons ran the gamut. There was something for everyone. I even used to catch myself getting ensnared in front of the tv with the kids. Maybe that doesn't say much for my intelligence level, who knows? Ha! But there truly was something for everyone. You could watch the super sweet Care Bears, Smurfs, and Little Bear. You could have adventure with G.I. Joe, Transformers, and Thundarr the Barbarian. And there was a bit in between with shows like Rescue Rangers, Jem, and Ducktales. Then there were the truly quirky and unique 80s cartoons like Inspector Gadget and Count Duckula. Kids today don't know what they're missing.

Relive your memories by watching and listening to these snippets of 80s cartoons theme songs and opening credits of popular cartoons. There are also some 80s cartoon episodes to watch. More 80's cartoons will be added a little at a time.

Care Bears- An 80s Decade Cartoon Phenomenon

Even if you didn't like the cuddly, cute, giggling Care Bears, you have to admit that they were an absolute essential part of 80s culture. Remember how they each had their own symbol on their tummies to give a hint of their personalities?

Heck, when I was in school in the navy, someone had even painted a huge mural of the Care Bears on our 'dorm' wall. You couldn't go into a store without seeing Care Bears- stuffed toys, t-shirts, cards, posters, they were everywhere! Pretty good results for a greeting card company, don't you think? Yeah, that's right. Care Bears were actually created by the American Greetings card company.

Remember all of the Care Bears names?

There originally were 10 Care Bears, and their names in alpabetical order include:
Bedtime Bear, Birthday Bear, Cheer Bear, Friend Bear, Funshine Bear, Good Luck Bear, Grumpy Bear, Love-a-Lot Bear, Tenderheart Bear, and Wish Bear. Many more were added throughout the years.

80s Cartoons Theme Songs

It's hard to beat theme songs of 80s cartoons. I couldn't pick a single one, but I may jog some memories with the following list of some awesome 80s cartoon songs:

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

A few snippets-

"They're the world's most fearsome fighting team (We're really hip!)
They're heroes in a half-shell and they're green (Hey - get a grip!)
When the evil Shredder attacks
These Turtle boys don't cut him no slack!"...

"Heroes in a half shell- Turtle Power!"

How about the Inspector Gadget cartoon theme song? One of the best parts to this cool cartoon song was the funky music. And the sirens going off in the very beginning. You remember it, don't you? Other than Go, Gadget, Go, and Inspector Gadget Whoo Hoo, that was about all of the lyrics, but still...

Transformers Cartoon Theme Song from the 80s
"Robots in disguise, More than meets the eye"

Alvin and the Chipmunks
Okay, I have a soft spot for the Chipmunks, but it's a great song.

"Watch out, cause here we come!
It's been awhile, but we're back with style..."

"We'll bring you action, and satisfaction."


Chip 'N Dale
"There's no case too big, no case too small
When you need help, just call
Ch-Ch-Ch-Chip n Dale, Rescue Rangers!
Ch-Ch-Ch-Chip n Dale,
When there's danger"...

"Not since Watson and Mr. Holmes
Have two minds so fine
Looked under every stone"...

"No, no, it never fails
They'll take the clues
And find the wheres and whys and whos"...

C'mon now, that's songwriting gold!

Smurfs Cartoon Theme Song
You gotta smile when you hear those horns blowing at the beginning!

Ducktales theme song is just catchy-
"Ducktales, Woo- oo!"

Darkwing Duck-
"Let's Get Dangerous!" He was so cool, and so was his song, sexy even.


Muppet Babies Theme Song
You know you love it!
"Muppet Babies, we make our dreams come true
Muppet babies, we'll do the same for you!"

Honorable Mentions:
Heathcliff
Jem
GI Joe

I think you must be a little younger than me, those are all programs that my younger brother liked. One of my favourites was Battle of the Planets - do you remember that one?

Dan Sai Kid,

Actually these cartoons are after my time. I watched these with my kids, though, and fell in love with them.

I remember watching Saturday morning shows that weren't cartoons at all, like Shazam! and Isis. Remember those? And of course, the classics like The Jetsons, Scooby Doo, and Porky Pig. I'll try to find Battle of the Planets for you.

Yeah great hub, as a child of the 80's I remember a fair few of these, but among them all either he-man or thundercats stood out for me, I had most of the action figures..and still do today!! Ah! 80's nostalgia, and today it is brain rotting fan fair on the box, no wonder the worlds in a state, not up to standard cartoons anymore!!

Waynet,

I wholeheartedly agree. I'm going to search and find some more 80s cartoons. I'm missing some of the more popular ones.

I agree waynet - Thundercats was a standout. One of my best friends was obsessed with He-Man & She-Ra.

Hey Waynet and Livelonger,

I did it. I found the first episode of the Thundercats. You can watch the full-length Thundercats episode online free with the link I posted above under the cartoon video clip with the Thundercats opening theme song.


Mario Mijan 9 years ago

ATTENTION ALL CENTURIONS FANS!!!This is definitely a great cartoon, with all the technology it needs. It deserves to be on DVD.There is an online petition for this show, that is trying to convince the people that own the show to release them on DVD which is very cool, if we get many requests from fans and others, then maybe our dream will come true.http://www.petitiononline.com/6600F/petition.html

Mattie B,

I have the opening theme song to Ulysses 31 on a video here. But to tell the truth, I don't remember this 80s cartoon. Now I'm going to have to go check it out. ;-)

Dear Angela Harris

This site brings back memories. The thundercats used to be my favorite show and now I am glad that I get to watch it again. I was wondering if you ever thought about posting Alvin and the chipmunks. I heard it was considered to be a popular 80s show and I have seen maybe two episodes and thought it was very good.


laura 9 years ago

can u get alvin and the chipmunks?


Shelly Parker 8 years ago

This was fantastic so glad i came across this, one other 80's cartoon was Rainbow Brite with all the sprites who were always battling against Murky and Lurky who took all the colours from the world. rainbow Brite and the Colour kids used to go and put them all back again there with the help of their sprites!!!!

Going to an 80's fancy dress Party at the end of November and would really love to be able to get a really good 80s cartoon costume, Has anybody seen any that are reasonably priced??


Angela Harris profile image

Angela Harris 8 years ago from Around the USA Author

Thanks for reminding me about Alvin and the Chipmunks. How could I forget about them?

I'll see if I can find more information about an 80s costume.

Very cool idea! All of these are after my time. I was a "Hong Kong Phooey" "Sigmund and the Sea Monsters" "Land of the Lost" "Captain Kool and the Kongs" "Groovy Ghoulies" 70's generation. But I loved this hub, and passed the link on to some friends I know will get a kick out of it.

BTW, I grew up in Brooklyn just a few blocks from Scot Baio. I think about him this time of year, beause I remember trick or treating at his house every year as a kid. Blast from the past...

Jessie 8 years ago

HELP!!! My little brother and I were having a discussion about cartoons he and I watched in the 80's. He watched all the typical "car" ones. He mentioned one that was about a type of superhero that was trying to always stop a bad guy who would plant "seeds". The seeds would end up destroying an area and the "fruit" that would grow was a car or bus or semi-truck. He insists it is NOT Captain Planet. Any ideas? Thanks.

robertjcb 7 years ago

It would be nice if the tv stations would bring back the cartoons that we grew up too. I think they are scared to because all of the new ones that came out would slip in the rateings. Then toy manufacturers would have to start producing the old toys again. You know it is a sad wold we live in when people take away the things that mean the most to us.

There was a fluffy ball that was purple and had a tail, and the object of the movie was to collect shapes and go from scene to scene building things with the shapes you collect. You had to build a boat and save a mermaid and then build a key. there was a pirate with a bird on his sholder and you went down into a sub underwater. it wasn't animated but more like felt characters being pulled around on strings.

George 7 years ago

I'm trying to remember the name of a cartoon I used to watch it the early 90's. It was set on a tropical island which was inhabited by trolls (the toys with the upright hair), and every episode an evil lady in red who was their enemy would come past on a steam ship with two guys who were her henchmen, and try to take over the island. Anyone remember this?


Mana 6 years ago

I remember a cartoon in the late 80s/early 90s where small people with colored hair (looked somewhat like trolls, but not exactly) lived on a tropical Island. I think its the same one you're asking about..with the evil skinny lady on the steam boat and a chubby guy as her henchman. I've been trying to figure out the name of this one for years!!

DJ Impakt 6 years ago

Okay, here's some answers to some of the questions you retro-junkies keep asking for: The show with the 4 teens who had a ship that turned into a Phoenix was "G-Force" aka Gatchaman in Japanese; the Smurfs were short, blue and only wore white pants and hats (except for smurfette) and were always trying to stay hidden from Gargamel and his cat Azreal; Pole-Position, Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, Frogger and Q-Bert made up the Saturday Arcade based on the arcade games from that era; Turbo Teen was the boy who was chased by the maniac in the monster truck into a science lab with his Corvette into a photon lazer of some sort that fused them together, and when he got hot he would turn into the car, cold again, and (you guessed it) back into a boy who had two best friends; The Wuzzles was a Disney cartoon that combined two animals or an animal and an insect to create another such as Bumble-Lion; Monchichies were little monkey like creatures that lived together in trees and had darker versions that didn't like their happiness; seems people have forgotten all about the Shirt Tales that lived in a tree in the zoo near a park and wore little T-shirts that would word the expressions of what was going on (memorable creatures with names like Bogie the orangutan who talked a little like Humphrey Bogart or Tiger who was just that and happened to be the leader; Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors was always battling the evil Sawboss looking for his father across the universe; Snorks were the underwater version of smurfs with hoses that grew out of the top of their heads, and they came in different colors; Fantastic Max was the baby who had the coolest mohawk and had a pull-string alien "toy" and not a rope friend as described by Annette above, but a robot with a bow-tie that was always trying to help keep max out of trouble (the martian could always turn the sand box into a rocket with magic); Dungeons and Dragons took the game to a whole new level by taking five kids from the real world via a Dungeons and Dragons roller coaster into the Dragonmaster's world and making each one a character from the game, so-to-speak, and giving them aide from the Dungeonmaster to find their way home (they did make it home once, but had to go back to stop the Dragonmaster from taking over our world); there was the Batman animated series based on the movie with Michael Keaton; another Disney series called Marsupalami about a very weird creature that looked like a cross between a monkey and a cheeta with something like a 25ft. tail who had a gorilla for a companion with a purple T-shirt (the gorilla not the other thing); glow worms which were colorful bedtime buddies that was a cute show that helped kids fall asleep better (don't remember too much of the underlying premis); Mr. Potatohead and family based on the toy series; Robotech (early anime for America) from the 70's brought into the 80's about an alien race that lost one of their ships in the "90's", and earth built a city around it, used their technology to create new types of fighter planes that could fly in outer space, but then accidentally used the crashlanded ships technology to warp to the outer part of our solar system (with an annoying song...AAAAAUUUUUGGGHHH!!!... by the lovable Min May); Lazer-Tag had a girl from the 21st century come back to the past to save her ancestor from being destroyed by an evil scientist who wanted the technology for himself based on the popular toy of the time to boost sales; who can forget Inspector Gadget whose lovable antics always got him into a situation that involved the evil power M.A.D. run by the ruthless Dr. Claw whose face was always hidden and only showed the gloved fist with the spiked wrist band, madcat his side kick, and Gadget's saving grace in the guise of Penny his booksmart niece who always had her computer book (the first laptop ever) and Brain the lovable family dog with a communications collar for keeping in touch with Penny for those tough situations (by the way, how does a fully mechanical man have a niece anyways???); He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, from Eternia, always a classic (the hair does raise some questions, though, no matter Prince Adam or the hero); and so many more. And all this from just remembering. I try to stay nostalgic and love reminiscing about my child hood days. And to the few of you above, you're right, why don't they have the messages like in the olden days? Kids today wouldn't know a good moral if it came up and asked to help them. We're too involved in what's the other person want from me? How about just helping and not getting. I'll try to think of some more to help out, but right now my brain ran into "Cartooners Block", heh-heh! L8Rz!!!

You hear the song, "The more we get together together together...the more we get together the happier we'll be!" And soon, all of the toys are holdings hands with children and dancing and singing together. PLEASE! I will lose my mind if I don't figure this out.

Anyone remember a cartoon maybe 80's or maybe 90's, with a bunch of female bears?? I remember one bear was realy awesome at hula-hooping, and they had to save an amusement park by getting more honey? Seems like honey was their fuel or energy source or something. It may have been just a one time video or movie, but it's really been bugging me for the past few years that I can't remember.

Dan 6 years ago

Does anyone remember the name of this cartoon? All I can remember is that there was this girl, and it was like she lived alone on some moon. She was lonely and eventually figured out a way to catch shooting stars in a butterfly net or something, and she'd travel to other planets. I don't remember much more than that. It's been driving me nuts trying to figure out what that was.

Hello everyone,

user rea7adversae made a comment about an 80's cartoon movie 4 months ago and didn't get any reply I think. He mentioned something about a movie that some creatures were scared by some giant green monsters and they went for aid for a human scientist. I remember the monsters stealing dreams or the children (can't remember) during the night in human cities when people were asleep. I remember that at the end of the movie the giant monsters get trapped in some giant chamber in a city. I wish someone would be able to aid with a name for this movie. The movie was shown in Disney Channel. Another movie shown at the same time, and sorry for this but I can't remember barely anything about it. All I recall is that there was one of the main characters, which was a small blue monster with a single horn, a kinda lion's tale and it had I think a type of Emo haircut. HOpe someone can aid me!

Hi, I'm trying to figure out the title of an anime that was out in the early 80's. It was about a princess that lived in a spaceship and had 3 warriors that protected her. They usually went into their small space crafts that detached from the spaceship whenever they went out to fight evil guys. One of the warriors that a thing around his head and the princess could use a device that could cause him pain. Please help! A million thanks!

Can anyone remember a cartoon, think it was about 50 minutes long ( I had it on video from Woolworths), about a brother and sister who are stuck at home on a rainy day and then two dogs come along. They sing songs, think one was called It's a Dog's Life and another Where's Everybody Going?. I can even remember how the songs go. I can't find anything about it, let me know if it rings a bell with you!

ALEJANDRO and rea7adversae

The one with the green things and something stealing dreams I think was probably Moondreamers. They rode on flying leaves right? The bad guy was a massive talking dragon on a throne in a volcanic cave. He had an assistant called Erpgore who'd come up with the evil plans.

DAN The one about the princess catching balls of light in a net is actually The Little Prince (or maybe te littlest prince). It's from a childrens book of the same name.

Silverhawks cartoon- there was Cowboy the pilot, Buzz Saw, and Bluegrass, I think. Copperkid was the golden one you remember. I hope that is the 80s cartoon you're searching for. I added the Silverhawks intro theme video for you.

Hi all,

Can anyone help me with info/titles of two 80's cartoons (?!) that my folks use to rent for me from our local video store around the mid 80's?

Both are vague, but the first had an old man of sorts that use to enter open windows of children and either steal their dreams, Christmas presents or the children themselves?!! In addition to this I remember, one child being taken to, I think, a junk yard? It use to scare the $hit out of me but, in a Zelda from Terrahawks way, I couldn't help but watch!  

The second, what I'm now led to believe, is a Japanese style cartoon that featured a boy and a female golden robot?

Would be great to see these again! Others I loved where 'The Snorks', 'Galaxy High' and 'Alfred J. Kwak'

-This is my first time to this fantastic Hub of yours.-

I have been looking for two animated films from my child hood. i don't know when they were made but i must have seen them in the late '80s or early '90s.

the first one is done in similar animation to the felix movie, about a bunch of bouncing ball people in space. i think they were on a ship and trying to escape something. my first thought was that it was called "great balls of fire" or "balls of fire," something like that.

The other was more anime style, about a small man living in the sea with the marine life and a small woman living on the land with the land creatures. long story short, they fall in love but cant live within each others worlds. In the end they both sacrifice themselves.

If anybody can help me i would greatly appreciate it. Im tired of no one knowing what im talking about.

Thank you!

foxtrotp 5 years ago

These two are driving ME crazy!

Both were animations shown in the late 1980s/early 1990s at insomniac times on channel 4.

The first, which i'm desperate to see again, was about a cat that got woken up by a hideous ringing alarm clock. he was scrabbling to switch it off, but the perspective kept on changing, so for example the bunched-up carpet would flip over, and he would be sailing on the sea in a boat. It might have been czech or hungarian or something, and there were no words, only music.

And i know the second was an award-winning Canadian animation - again, no words, only fiddle music. it began with a man chopping a tree down, and then the tree got turned into different things - a cradle for a baby, a rocking horse when the child got older, a rocking chair when the child was an old man, and very possibly a coffin when the child eventually died - but i might have made that last one up!

Anyone know anything about these two animations? thanks in advance :)

Not sure if any of you remember this, but I distinctly recall a cartoon in the 80's where the Three Little Pigs were actually henchman to the main villain. The only thing I remember is them finding something on a radar reminiscent to a submarine sonar, which opened up the episode.

Also, I thought the Monchichis had a blue furry character with two heads. I guess that's from another cartoon set in the jungle. I could've sworn it also involved a jungle treehouse. The rest of the characters were furry animals.

Im looking for two cartoons. the first one is a cartoon in which I think its a bear cub that lands on an island and is raised by the inhabitants and when hes grown he goes in search of his family in a plain with his friend. and the other a boy that finds a machine that makes monsters insects for him and there is a scientist that wants to use it to make bad monsters.


Chaz 4 years ago

The cartoon starts off with a mom and shes doing laundry and her son a young boy somehow catches or finds a green creature stealing his sock or his hat (he may even had built a trap). He ends up finding an underground underworld under his house or bed etc that is basically a place where these creatures steal lots of "lost" things or forgotten things or maybe even all the left things of pairs, gloves, shoes, etc I'm not sure. Hey may even have had his sister with him at some point or showed her this world. I'm pretty sure this aired on the Disney channel sometime in the 90's possibly but I'm having trouble finding leads. The cartoon seemed to be about explaining where "lost" things go etc. Thanks everyone I know I am close!

Jrodtheman 3 years ago

Ok, I've read thru all these posts and can't find what I'm looking for. Here's the 80's (I assume) cartoon/show I can't remember the name of: All I can remember is there being some kind of ship - I don't think it took place in space, just to narrow it down - I think the ship had a mast that could be lowered and swapped with another type (maybe metal?) to do whatever they did in the show. There was a control panel of some kind that was used to select the mast they needed. I remember one scene that someone walked into a warehouse/bar/somewhere and one of the other characters was sitting on top of a stack of barrels/crates/etc. Also, I'm assuming at the end, they for some reason have to push the big red self destruct button on the control panel, and the ship is destroyed. Sorry it's so vague... my assumption is that this was from 1983 on, since I wouldn't have been around yet to see it. And the fact I barely remember it would mean I was quite young. My guess is a range from 1983-88, assuming what I saw wasn't already in re-runs from years past.

Any help would be great!!! Thanks.

Jared Chapman 3 years ago

An early 1990's Channel 4 Animated series or film about a Tiger or Bear who talked and wore clothes, seemed to have a swamp in it as the setting I remember-a pier anyway. The character was called something like 'Sandercan'. A bit like Talespin in setting but more serious. Anyone have any ideas?


Jason 2 years ago

Jared Chapman, I believe the show you are remembering is Kissyfur. It took me decades to find info about it online, but I eventually even found a VHS tape of some episodes... with the plastic wrap still on it! (I also found a VHS of Robotix) ...Sadly, none of the episodes were any that I remembered. It took place in a swamp and the main characters were Kissyfur, his father (who drove a paddle boat), and Kissyfur's friends.

I was disappointed that this didn't bring in Centurions. But I can watch that show anytime I want. But here is one I doubt any of you will remember, as no one seems to. It was about a group of kid-like girls (NOT Strawberry Shortcake) but who were small enough to have bugs as friends. They road a centipede? who was like a close friend and kid was a toddler. They met up with an old friend who had essentially "gone bad" (for whatever that was worth in this story) who was kinda like Vidia from the Tinkerbell movies, and I believe was living near a lake. They also had to compete against some witch or something I believe. I know FOR A FACT that the intro music was, "Everybody Wants To Rule the World," but NOWHERE can I find it listed as being used for a cartoon anything like this.

The Dan Sai Kid--Battle of the Planets used to be my all time favorite cartoon. I used to "fly" around the campus l=with my schoolmates. I will always remember those cartoons, because of Casey Kasem. His voice was very popular.

Here is a link to the history of the show. You can find the videos on YOUTUBE, and once in a while, at your favorite movie store. IE SUNCOAST GIFTS. I found the complete cartoons on DVD for around $200.00 or so at the time. I didn't have any money, or I would have snagged them up.
