All through the ’80s, TV networks would toss everything out on Saturday morning to check out what works. While a few shows progressed towards becoming hits and produced franchises that have endured decades, many were gone much too early. We should pause for a minute to look at 15 cartoons from the ’80s that you’ve most likely overlooked. However, they may hold a unique place in your heart!
15. SILVERHAWKS (1986)
After the achievement of “Thundercats,” creators Rankin and Bass chose to make “Silverhawks.” The show depicts a gathering of people from the far future. They fight adversaries in space with their glossy, winged metallic suits. The characters are portrayed as “partly metal, and partly real.” While a large portion of the Silverhawks had wings and could fly, one of the team, Lt. Colonel Bluegrass didn’t have wings. Rather, he battled adversaries with his weapons, a super-powered guitar and a rope. “Silverhawks” includes practically precisely the same voice cast as “Thundercats.” While “Silverhawks” just lasted for season, they created 65 episodes, a Marvel-produced comic book series, and a full toy line, which was exceptionally popular with children.
14. M.A.S.K. (1985-86)
“M.A.S.K” was created in partnership between DIC and Kenner. It’s a a show about a team called the Mobile Armored Strike Kommand who battled the malicious team known as V.E.N.O.M. (Viscious Evil Network of Mayhem). All the individuals in M.A.S.K. wore MASKS! This show went on for two seasons from 1985 to 1986. Although the show didn’t last as long as “G.I. Joes” or “Transformers,” the toys sold extremely well. Furthermore, it still holds an exceptional place in many fans’ hearts.
