Beverly Hills Teens rings a bell. If anything I see a little "Alvin" influence in it. ;)

The only cartoons on that list that I don't recall having seen are Visionaries, MoonDreamers and Inhumanoids.

I actually dug Bravestarr more than He-Man, at the time. Galtar and Blackstar were pretty fun, too. Thundarr the Barbarian (not on the list) was probably my favorite of that 'sci-fi/sword & sorcery mashup' genre, though. :mrgreen:

Wuzzles!

Hands down for me. Great writing, fun vocals, totally underrated one-off single season perfection. As a companion, the Fluppy Dogs pilot/special is also a must for those fans of the start of the Disney Afternoon style of animated programming.

Definitely a tie between DuckTales and The Real Ghostbusters.
:wink:

DuckTales is great, especially that theme song! Woo-oo.

For me, my favorite 80's 'toon would probably be Alvin and the Chipmunks. Though not as "cute" as The Alvin Show, it was a worthy follow-up.

Yeah, how can anyone not love a song that opens with the line: “Life is like a hurricane, here in Duckburg!” lol. :wink:

Yeah, 80s Alvin definitely had some good episodes, particularly the special where they find their real mom. :cry:

I only saw the original Alvin show when they showed the “Christmas don’t be late” special on TV. I thought the different look/feel/voices was kinda strange, but I remember liking it too. :)


(The Simpsons parody: “Melvin and the Squirrels” was hilarious though. “Mel-vin!” :lol: )
