    I'm currently watching this with my Daughter, bout half way though. She's loving it.

    I agree it has aged well, but also uncannily good even watching it as an Adult. The synth score is brilliant

    Ren & Stimpy is my most memorable as an older kid

    You mean Fireball XL5 or Stingray?

    I wasn't alive for the first run of any of Gerry's shows. ;)

    John K (Ren & Stimpy creator) was a super weird guy, and by all accounts equal parts amazing and terrible to work with. I genuinely think he was a little insane, but it's obvious to me that Ren & Stimpy set a standard for animation in the same way Mickey Mouse and Bugs Bunny did in their respective eras.

    I remember how much adults at the time HATED Ren & Stimpy, calling it filth and trash. I'm a huge fan of the absurd and surreal, so it was exactly the sort of thing I loved.

    My most memorable parts were with kawalski (sp?) "And what do you want to drink"? "MEAT".

    And the Stimpy's conscience one where Ren kept getting the crap beat out of him.

    Also can't forget the baboon guarding the pork faces.

    SuperTed, Banana Man, DangerMouse, Roger Ramjet, Rocky & Bullwinkle and Inspector Gadget (+ Wind in the Willows, The Goodies, Monkey Magic, Sooty & Sweep, Ringo's Thomas and Mr Squiggle) sure bring back memories of after school/homework viewing. WB cartoons on Saturday morning with Daffy Road Runner were a weekend routine, in later years Animainacs, Pinky & The Brain, Duck Tales and Aladdin were enjoyable as well.

    I barely remember Ulysses and the Mysterious Cities of Gold, just flashes of some scenes and mostly the large emotional effect those shows had on me at the time. I went though a phase of attempting to re-watch a lot of childhood shows and introduce them to my kids, some have not aged well (TMNT, lion voltron, Transformers animated movies and the He-man live action movie) while others like Mysterious Cities and Astro Boy have stood the test of time.


    Notable video's that haven't been posted yet...






    I'd forgotten all about this one - Silver Hawks. Laser guitar battles, need I say more?



    I know this is getting off topic however my wife grew up watching Dragonball on TV, also there's a decent age gap between myself and youngest siblings and we religiously VHS'd and watched Cheez TV & DBZ together...

    I used to love that show. As kids we'd play-act it with friends in the pool, doing his flips and stuff.

    What a bunch of nerds. :lol:
