Saturday Morning Cartoons

Hey all,

Yet again we will delve into our collective childhood to rummage through old memories of the past. Today I bring an entry that has two intros. But are at the same time very different. ( You'll understand better when you'll watch them. ) So without further ado, I present to you:

The Real Ghostbusters

And also: Ghostbusters

I can actually hear you say: "What the frak?!". I know, I was very confused too when I was younger. Especially since I really loved the GhostBusters movie. You can imagine my surprise the first time I saw two GhostBusters show in the TV Guide and was treated to two very different shows. I just thought it would be double the proton pack fun. The second show turned out to have a Gorilla in it.

Still, Ghostbusters had it's own thing going for it. And I have to admit it was pretty interesting none the less. In fact, I think my dad preferred this one instead of The Real Ghostbusters show with Peter, Ray, Egon and Winston. It was based on a live-action television show for kids in the 70's called The Ghost Busters.

Apparently there was a big brou-ha-ha made about the licensing of the name when it came time to make the cartoons. So the cartoon based on the movie was named the Real Ghostbusters just to differentiate the two series.

So now you know... and knowing is half the battle. ^w^

Until then, this is me signing out

Saturday Morning Cartoons

Hey all,

Time again for another entry of SMC. Today's SMC is something pretty much everyone knows about. And to show how popular this character was, I'll show you the intro three times in different languages.

Astro boy

Tetsuwan Atomu

Astro le Petit Robot

If you've never heard of him, I suggest you go back to the rock you've been living under all this time. ^w^

Until then, this is me signing off.

P.S.: Don't worry. I'm working on other stuff as well. It's just with this I have something to talk about every week. You know kinda get my creative juices flowing.

Saturday Morning Cartoons

Hey all,

It's saturday again. And here's another intro for you guys to watch. This week I chose something that, at the time, didn't know was anime. I'm sure a lot of you had cartoons like that. But anyway, here goes.


Robotech is a united states adaptation of the early Macross anime universe. It basically took three separate series and mashed them into one. Robotech represents what is wrong with bringing an anime states side. However, the contents of the series was still pretty interesting and in many respects, Robotech is considered as being responsible for igniting anime fandom in North America.

Here's the Japanese intro of the first series just for kicks. ^-^

Until then, this is me signing off.
