I've been meaning to get that Mario show for the longest time! :)

I remember loving the cartoon portions of it, but not so much the live action stuff. Though, that was a long time ago, and I hear that they were actually funny, so who knows.

It was "cute." :P Something to watch after school, anyway. :wink:


Also, for some reason I always really enjoy seeing bits of the 1993 Bob Hopkins/John Leguizamo film. Still can't believe it came from Disney....:P
Anyway, it's a fun film. :)

I can't remember too well either, but I think the Mario guy was actually a former wrestler at the time who decided to act as well. They had cute little skits for about 7 minutes that were fun to watch. :)

Also, speaking of 80's stuff, not exactly a cartoon but wonderful anyway:

That's the way I remember it being, too.

With the way he looked, I believe it. Was it only 7 minutes? I could've sworn it was longer. :?

Wasn't sure where to put this but apparently this was a "tatoo" (I guess temporary) seen at the Comic-Con: (thanks to Cartoon Brew)

I'm trying to find the name of an old Nickelodeon cartoon...

Post by johnbegayjr » November 14th, 2007, 6:37 am

To all,

I'm trying to find the name of an old Nickelodeon cartoon that ran in the 1980s. What I remember most about it was that the cartoon was based in London, England and featured a detective or some crime-fighting duo or team. I know that there was a rather big character in there but I don't remember the names of any of the characters or of course, the title of the show itself. If this show is familiar or sounds familiar, please post a reply and would like to be able to find out the name to this show. Thanks.

- John :?

Very rare "Making of The Real Ghostbusters" British documentary from 1989!! :)

(I posted part 2 since it has more about the cartoon--part 1 focuses a lot on the films.)

cute film on real ghostbusters, i watched that a lot.

My favorite was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles though, and I love Jem and the Holograms. That is my favorite 80s cartoon even though I didn't watch it when I was little I can't get enough of it now. I really wish they would release the last season/bunch of episodes.

Oh, he's called "Stiffanbond" now, so he can necro-resurrect more generically titled threads to post sales-spam signatures onto. Just to keep thread-locks updated. :P
(At least when he isn't "Tish Peli", or whatever new post-bump account he'll be next week.)
