Not even gonna lie. I loved Hammerman and Pro Stars...but I'd pretty much watch anything during 1984-1992 when Batman came along and suddenly, I had standards...lol
YES!!! That show was awesome! One of the highlights of the Kid's WB lineup, before the merger with UPN.Vault Citizen said:Granted he might not have heard of it but I'm surprised that Bob didn't mention the Jackie Chan cartoon. For those of who you don't know it starred a guy named Jackie Chan who worked as an archeologist and knew Kung fu. He worked in his uncle's house, looked after his niece and fought both mystical villains and criminal organisations. At the end of each episode Jackie Chan (the real one) would answer a question about himself.
Argh, Ninja'ed!lazinesslord said:I'm surprised you didn't mention "Jackie Chan Adventures." Which, by the way, was awesome! It had some of the coolest action sequences, it made use of Chinese/ other Eastern mythologies and settings, and it had a kid sidekick character that wasn't completely annoying (or at least I didn't think so). Heck, one could make the argument that Jackie Chan's cartoon helped bring about other, similar cartoons like "Avatar: The Last Airbender." So yeah, Jackie Chan+Cartoon=Awesome.
puff ball said:how was the Jackie Chan show left out of this. i mean it was at-least half way decent, and far more recent then anything else on the list.
Sweet, another Laser Time listener! *hi-fives*Stabby Joe said:While these cartoons in themselves are weird, the fact this was a "thing" at all for a period still baffles me.
That Ali cartoon in particular is just surreal.
I've heard of many of these during an episode of Laser Time podcast ( http://www.lasertimepodcast.com/2012/05/28/laser-time-animated-vanity/ ) and actually seeing them in action here makes it all the more strange...
...I do wonder how the Governater would have turned out in the long run.
Random trivia time!ShirowShirow said:I liked "Jackie Chan Adventures" (I'm too old to add "When I was a kid" to that) but the first thing that came to mind for me was the Puffy Ami Yumi Show. Apparently Teen Titans was so popular another show got greenlit based on the popularity of its' theme song alone.
Yeah, I remember the Jackie Chan cartoon was successful enough to the mid 00's.kailus13 said:
