    I feel bad for anyone who tries to watch this now. Loved it as a kid. As an adult, I don't know how I lasted more than 10 minutes back then.

    I remember watching a single episode of this a few years ago on Boomerang simply because I was bored.

    I only remember just how bad I thought it was. It's probably on par with some modern crap like Flapjack.

    I remember this show it was followed by Mario chasing Donkey Kong and his son's seach for him. Then either Rubix cube, Q-bert, Pole Position or Turbo Teen.

    I haven't seen this since I was a kid, and this thread made me want to look it up on youtube to see how bad it was. First episode I saw, the opening scene showed the city, and zoomed in on this building.

    Normally I roll my eyes when people see subliminal or hidden sexual images in things, but this had to be intentional. I can't unsee it. :lol

    Some things are better left in our childhood memories. I don't want to know how bad this show actually is. Or the Dukes of Hazard cartoon, or the Dragon's Lair cartoon, etc. etc.

    All I can say is "Why?"

    Seriously was there a huge call for it? I can see TF , GI Joe, or MASK. But Pac-Man?

    I vaguely remember seeing this on TV in 1983/84, but I can't remember anything from it.

    I want it.

    This is the future! In the future we should have everything, big or small.

    Seriously though it's not about huge demand, it's about niche titles. There are people like myself that will snap up releases like this in a heartbeat. If they can release it, I say why not? All these media companies have huge catalogs, but don't take advantage of them. Even at the height of DVD only about 1/3 of catalog titles actually made it to DVD. US cartoons have done far worse.

    It's a dream come true for me. It's because of this program that I have Thundarr the Barbarian, and will have Pac-man... which has been on my wants list since I started collecting DVDs back in '02. And, it's my only hope of seeing an official release of Mighty Orbots. I'm also hopeing for Wheelie and the Chopper Bunch, Clue Club, and Jana of the Jungle.

    I vaguely remember it in the reruns as a kid. and prepare to feel bad because im gonna look for some episodes. pray for me.

    THIS! OH FOR THE LOVE OF ALL HOLY THINGS, THIS!

    EDIT
    Well, i watched 3 episodes including the only episode i actually remembered "The Great Pac-Quake" and there are so many things i could say that could express how i feel right now.
    I wasn't that bright as a kid. but who can say that they really were. I'm now going to try to erase this show from my head.

    oh.
    my.
    god.

    i'd rather have Thundarr.

    this show was worse than The Littles, Rubik's Cube and Monchichis...

    even makes me long fgr Hulk Hogan's Rock 'N Wrestling.
