    It's not IT related. And I shouldn't buy it. But I want to so badly.

    http://www.play.com/DVD/DVD/PROD/3-/570637/Trap_Door_Series_1_2/Product.html

    There are so many DVDs now that'll help me regress to childhood - Wacky Races, Bucky O Hare, and I already own Tom & Jerry collection.

    So, above are the cartoons that made me tick as a young 'un. How about anyone else?

    LOL. Nostalgia means different things to different people. For my money, Jonny Quest (original version) was the best action cartoon ever made. I did give in to temptation and buy an older British TV series (only ran two seasons, though) about The Invisible Man. It's dated of course, but still good fun and the special effects aren't bad considering what they had to work with back then. It was made in the late 50s but didn't make it to my side of the pond until the mid 60s. I only remember bits and pieces of the show and it was interesting watching it again as an adult. Ah...the good ol' days. :wink:

    LOL

    'Ulysses 31' - I remember it well. With his little robot 'Nono'

    By Christ there was some crap around in the 80s. Anyone remember 'Battle Of The Planets', or 'The Mysterious Cities Of Gold' or (whisper it quietly, devotees won't hear a word against it) Dogtanian?

    Amazing that anyone who grew up in the 80s managed to achieve anything approaching a semblance of normalcy with the tosh we used to watch.

    I used ta love Battle of the Planets.. it was also called soemthing else like ZOLTAN! with all the voices red dubbed to make a differnet story from the originals.

    Dogtanian was ok but not special...

    And on Saturdays there was always "TERROHAWKS" with Windsor Davies as the Ball robot Sargent!!!

    Is it any wonder i've grown up warped and strange??

    LOL, I loved just about every 80's cartoon mentioned so far. I think I must have watched a lot of TV as a kid because I remember some of these way better than my friends. Some of them are still wheeled out on the digital cartoon channels every now and again. I bought a DVD collection a couple of years ago with Willo' The Wisp, Dangermouse, Duckula, Chorlton and the Wheelies and Jamie and the Magic Torch. Class. Of course, the greatest was Transformers. I gaze longingly at the DVD box set every time I'm in HMV. Maybe one day...

    As for books, I just dug out all my old kids books from my Mum's attic for my little 'un. The Hungary Caterpillar, Beatrix Potter, Mr. Men, Wind in the Willows...They don't make them like they used to.:D

    Transformers passed me by. I'm just a tiny bit too old to have been caught up in it (I think i missed it by about two years).

    My brother was absolutely devoted though - him and his mates had all of 'em.

    One of his best friends had Optimus Prime and (true story), was going home one day, crossing the road outside my house, and got hit by a car (don't worry, the kid survived). he got tossed, like, 10 feet in the air and came down with a broken leg and broken arm. Ambulance is called, the kid gets wheeled into the back of it and all he can say is 'Where's my Optimus Prime?' (it got knocked out of his hand when he got hit).

    Madness - the kid's lying there in what must be absolute agony, and all he can think about is his bloody Transformer!
