Let’s be honest, these baddies were the real reason you tuned in every weekday afternoon.
Watch in horror as two people who were born in ‘89 and ‘92 and somehow managed to attain adulthood encounter ’80s action cartoons for the first time. How do you not know who He-Man is???
It was all for a very good cause, but it was just so dark.
Would you believe there is a link between Baby Kermit on Muppet Babies and Megatron on Transformers?!
Did we really need an animated version of Laverne & Shirley?
Can you prove you were raised in the greatest decade to be a kid: the ’80s?!
Are you a natural leader like He-Man or a quirky individual like Rainbow Brite?
These songs are guaranteed to have you bouncing here and there and everywhere.
In the 1980s, nothing was more important to kids than character-themed merchandise. Also, BRB, eBaying He-Man and the Masters of the Universe bedsheets.
The folks over at Screen Junkies have compiled a video of some well-known celebrities that you might not know voiced classic cartoon characters.
These disturbing images created by DeviantART user Tohad — for his “BADASS” series — might just destroy your childhood.
Sure, you remember The Smurfs, Jem, and Transformers, but what about Beverly Hills Teens?
Seriously, what was really going on between She-Ra and He-Man?
It’s showtime, obviously.
You’ll probably want to eat a big bowl of cereal while reading this post.
This list is definitive proof that there was no better decade for toys than the ‘80s. (Note: toy lines are listed in no particular order.)
Jem in the iPad age? Love it.
Signs that you were raised in the greatest decade to be a kid: the ’80s! Step aside, ’90s kids. Just step aside.
Cosplay costumes done right! Some of these costumes will blow you away.
This was the original Beverly Hills, 90210, but way, way more ridiculous.
Was Jem an ’80s cartoon a crystal ball into the future? Dare you to say you wouldn’t pay to see this live-action remake.
This is not a trick question. Remember this gem from the late ’80s? If not, it’s because there were only two seasons. Probably because of budget problems.
Or making it awesome, depending on your irony threshold. Still no ugly Chanukah sweaters.
A coffeeshop called Espresso Royale employs a talented artist named Sara Jahn. She creates these awesome depictions of turtles and other 80s-era icons getting their caffeine fix.
Watchful guardians or ferocious beasts? You decide.
This video is the new litmus test for friendship. Don’t think it’s totally radical? GTFO.

Cartoons these days cover a variety of subjects, but there is only one subject that 80’s cartoons dealt with better than any other decade. Genocide!
