The 80’s kids were blessed with all sorts of amazing things that today’s kids would never understand. The current generation is only using the evolved version of the stuff that took birth in 80’s and early 90s; they can never know the excitement of having the dial-up Internet connection, the early Nintendo video games or the worth of Saturday morning cartoons.
Everything is in abundance in this era, and people have so many options no matter what field it is. Today’s kids don’t have Saturday Morning cartoons; on the contrary, they have a ton of channels that air cartoon 24/7. They don’t have to repeat the same video games these days. Instead, they try to finish their games faster so that they can jump on to the next big thing.
There is no time to sit back and daydream in today’s world. Everybody in such a hurry that people forget to relish the present moments like we used to do back in the day. We don’t like to sit back and contemplate on matters because in this present age investing time in making decisions is considered out of fashion, if things are not instant they are labeled as useless.
Saturday morning cartoons held a pre-eminent position in the hearts of the 80’s kids; it was something that we waited for the whole week. We grew up with excellent shows like G.I Joe, Thundercats, Transformers and other thrilling cartoons of the 80’s. Those cartoons indirectly taught us, how to separate good from evil, and they nourished our thought-process with sound values while giving us the most bad-ass adventures in their usual 23-minute runs. Today’s cartoons are too kiddish, and they focus purely on getting the attention of kids, but they don’t necessarily impart anything productive in their personalities.
We had the best babes in the cartoon world; seriously there is no match. Those were the times where government regulations didn’t push creators to make cartoon characters more “unrealistic” so that the impressionable kids can identify the animations as work of fiction. Now, I don’t want to open the can of worms to discuss if these regulations are required or not? But the lack of these censorship rules in our days gave us the most charming cartoon heroines and villainess.
That’s the reason; even today you can easily find a 35-year-old admiring a fan-art of April O’Neil from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as she was the ultimate crush of countless young boys in the US and beyond. April is not the only protagonist that made us feel that way; there were many strong, beautiful, stylish and glamorous female personalities in the toons that would rob your heart in a single episode.
Those female characters were not “damsel in distress” they took up the charge and fought with their male counterparts shoulder-to-shoulder to beat the diverse list of interesting villains.
We wanted to bring back those lovely memories of our readers in this post by creating a compilation of the best live-action adaptation of the most attractive female characters from the 80’s cartoons. Here they are, relive your memories, fellas:-
