    Dukes of Hazzard & The A-Team come to mind right away, and so do Bloodsport & the Princess Bride if we're counting movies.

    I do miss the 80s. I get a funny feeling when my daughter watches an episode of jem or when i go to a con and spot silverhawks. I love 80s music as well. It seemed like a really happy and innocent time. Howard the duck! I loved that movie as a kid.

    The 2 things I miss most about the 80's were no cell-phones and no internet (more or less). Granted I used both of them each day, but I'd gladly give them both if they would just dis-appear.

    So do I and if it was ever put on dvd I would buy it for sure. I know boomerang was playing the series for awhile and I DVR'd it so I can watch it anytime I want now.I want the figures as well if Hasbro would pull them out of limbo state and make them again.

    I remember back in 1983, we bought our first VCR. It was a Toshiba and it was big and heavy.

    I remember watching "Dynasty" on ABC.

    Well, with my age I could go on forever about what I love from the 80's, but a majority of it has been said here, there or somewhere before, except I want a Jayce and the wheeled warriors remake dern it.

    I hate my phone sometimes :(

    The 80's had some good stuff, but the best cartoons award belongs to the early 90's. I mean; Batman, Superman, Spider-Man, X-Men, The Tick, Animaniacs, Beast Wars, Tiny Toons, Gargoyles, Beavis and Butt-Head, and the good seasons of The Simpsons.

    I miss the cartoons's toys and music of the 80's. I was a little kid then and it was so nice turning on oh say MTV and there was "Gasp" Music video's not a hundred show about teen moms and other such show. I really miss watching series like night rider and Hunter and all the other. I love golden girls and empty nest and all. Saturday morning I really miss cartoons were so good and entertaining then.

    The 80s rocked. Action shows on tv left and right, saturday morning cartoons, kung fu theater, going outside to play with toy guns that looked real. What sucks is tv never could capture the real life 80s so I keep getting a mix of hi def memories and neon high hair memories.

    What? No mention of Airwolf or Knight Rider? How dare you! LOL!

    God yes I miss the 80's tv show. Back when it was real and not full of un-reality reality crap.
