    So growing up, anybody have any memories of some of the most godawful cartoons ever made?

    I grew up in the 80's, so I have a whole cornucopia of crap to choose from. I wouldn't even know where to begin...

    ... oh wait... Gilligan's Planet. Gilligans... freaking... Planet. Yes, this existed. I used to watch it when I was about five years old. Gilligan's Island... in outer space. In my teen and adult years, none of my friends believed me this existed. They thought I was high or something and I would be the butt of their jokes for years because of this.

    Then one day, back in 1999, I found a copy of this cartoon on VHS at Movie Trader Company. I gathered my friends, popped it in, pointed to the screen, and said "HA!!!! I TOLD YOU I WASN'T HALLUCINATING!!!"

    And yes, it was really really awful.

    MC Hammer's cartoon Hammerman.

    Hammer Man - YouTube

    You have to have SEEN it to believe there was something like that that existed. You can't really believe it, but you keep watching...

    Naw I can believe that, considering this was the early 90's and somehow everyone became termporarily retarded.

    I watched Hammerman back in the day, I think it was briefly in the same school holiday block as SBTB over here.

    I agree. I have a term for that. Stupidfun. Basically anything that's dumb as hell, but still enjoyable to watch. Like Dumb and Dumber or anything by Paul WS Anderson.

    I had completely forgotten that show even existed. Now, you've dredged up those long repressed memories.

    I will get you, for this. :p

    Pac-Man was a turd.
    just like Rubik's Cube, Monchichis, The Littles, The Happy Days Cartoon (yeah...shivers)

    and if any of you primitive screwheads disses Thundarr, we can step outside and settle this.
    (hint, it was AWESOME!)

    Speaking of 'toons based off of arcade games, I was a big fan of the Dragon's Lair cartoon as a kid. My memories are so positive, that I don't want to ruin/taint them by rewatching it now :lol

    I liked Thundarr, it had a certain charm to it.

    I watched a few episodes of it. Heck, it was even dubbed in our language. I hated it.

    Also, what's up with Ren and Stimpy? Other toons I considered awful are Captain America, He-Man, and others I can't remember.

    I imagine most of them, even by the standards of the day, were bloody awful. Nothing springs to mind as being totally shit thought.

    He-Man is pretty awful. The '90s had a slew of stinkers like James Bond, Jr., Captain Planet, Attack of the Killer Tomatoes, Extreme Ghostbusters, Where in the World is Carmen San Diego, X-Men, etc.
