Never heard of any of them!
Ullise? Ulysses 42 you mean? With the stupid red robot and the really annoying theme tune? Yeah, very funny. And add Battle of the Planets to that list.
Plastic, it is indeed written Ulysses. Thank you for correcting that. But it is Ulysses 31 and not 42. Smile Smilie
My favourite was Goldorack and Captain Hadock (alias Albator).

These are Japanese cartoons, except for Captain Flam which was American. The main theme of the stories is somewhat the same: the Earth being threatened by evil creatures, robots or 'humanoides'.

I don't think I ever saw Battle of the Planets.

I have done some research on the internet and it seems I have been giving you the French names (I used to watch these cartoons on a French TV channel).
Goldorack should be known as Grandizer in English, Albator is Captain Harlock (and not Hadock) and Captain Flam is called Captain Future in English.

I used to watch Battle of the Planets. Is it still screened somewhere in the world.

I thought it was quite good actually. Especially the bit about Kronus being Mark(?) 's father. I always felt sorry for Keops, the little kid who talked funny. The best visual bit was the firey pheonix.

The helmets and costumes were a bit over the top though.

Anyone seen Mummies Alive? About a group of mummies that come to life to serve the purpose of good and save the world and all that and to protect some little kid who is supposed to be the heir to the throne of egypt or something. Some good humour.

Lets not even get into transformers or those toxic waste creatures.
Whoa! gnampie! You've just named a load of cartoons I've never heard of...mind you, I mainlt watched fantasy cartoons, like He-Man, Thundercats and Dungeons & Dragons.
Oh, Allyssa? Don't even get me started on Mummies Alive, I just love that Disturbed Smilie

*just being annoying* : Halo: what's a spleen? Ha Ha Ha Smilie
Seriously: I have no idea!

I never watched any of these cartoons, I guess, because I never heard of them! Ignore Smilie
Whats a spleen? I dunno *goes to Yahoo and looks up "spleen"* Aha! Check this out TomBombadillo
Quote:
The spleen is a large organ of the lymphatic system working with the thymus, lymph and bone marrow. It is located on the left side of the body between the fundus of the stomach and the diaphragm, and weighs between 4-16 ounces. It is vulnerable to being injured by fractures of the 9th, 10th, and 11th ribs, and it is one of the few organs whose metabolic rate isn’t controlled by the thyroid.

...ewww, sounds yucky, I still like useing the word Spleen though, it sounds funny Very Big Grin Smilie



Link 'o' Spleen!

Aha. Thanks Halo. But what's that got to do with your sig. (still dontgetit). Paranoid Smilie Think I'm going a bit gaga. (well, going...) Wary Smilie
Thundercats! *rofl* Now that was funny, as was He-man and D&D. Battle of the Planets is still shown on Bravo, and was really, really bad. Given that they ripped off Ming the Merciless from Flash Gordon. Captain Haddock was the guy who always said "Blistering Barnacles" in Tintin wasn't he?
Yes, you're right about Captain Haddock Plastic.

The cartoons I was refering to were on TV from 1977 till 1985 (or something like that) at least in Belgium and France. They were very popular at the time. He-man and D&D came later I think. So maybe that's why you never heard of them. Anyway, in case you're interested, each year at New Year's Eve they are playing some episodes at a French TV channel.
The story of Captain Harlock is very beautiful!
I know these cartoons are also known in Canada and somehow the French versions are better compared to the English versions.

You can look for more information on following website:

77-85 is my time for cartoons Gnamps, so I just don't think we got them over here. Either that or I just didn't watch them.

Not much really. I just like saying SPLEEN! Big Smile Smilie
Aha. So it's all right if I don't get your point? :P
Fine by me

Hehehe! Spleeeeeeeeen! Ha Ha Ha Smilie Disturbed Smilie
Hey! Anybody watch Mobile Suit Gundam? I don't get to watch it very often because it is on at 1 a.m in the morning on Cartoon Network on Saturday nights. I also have the movies on video. It has some similarities to Star Wars. Smile Smilie
Well my favourites were Pole Postion (the talking race cars), Legend of the 5 Cities of Gold, Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors, He-Man, Transformers, Ulyesse 31, ThunderCats and Dungeons & Dragons. The 80's were the best time to be a kid because you had the best cartoons. Who agrees with me.

As Optimus Prime would often say "Autobots Roll out"
I remember Pole Position but I don't think I was really fanatical about it. He-Man, Transformers and Thundercats were my Shakespeare when I was a wee lad in the eighties. And actually in that order too, followed by my final kiddy-cartoon obsession, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Big Laugh Smilie There were many others (Voltron, Tranzor-Z, Gummi Bears, Duck Tales, etc., etc.)interspersed throughout but those were the main ones.

Never heard of Wheeled Warriors or Ulysses 31 and I never knew there was a Dungeons & Dragons cartoon.

What was that one with the Rain Laser Gun or whatever? 'Member, with the great big starship? I think it might have been one of those anime jobs...

Pretty much I watched all those cartoons and still do in some cases D&D is on Fox kids.
Does anybody remeber those cartoon films were they were in space and they all wore helmets with visors that came down, the lead character wore red, the bird wore pink and there was a guy who wore green and one in blue. There was about seven of them and I can't remeber the name if anyone knows it please say so or it will drive me insane, well even more insane.

Battle of the Planets,Ross, they were repeating it on sky at one point, d@mn but it looks dated now, I used to love that.

I was just old enough to catch the tail end of the 80's cartoons...the early 90's had great cartoons, too, though...(Darkwing Duck!)

Ringfacwen, I loved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Ducktales... Big Smile Smilie
I loved the Ducktales too, because they were the animated characters I liked best from the from the Mickey Mouse Comic books that my sister had a subscription to in the fifties. Scrouge McDuck vs the Beagle Boys were fun too, but I liked best the adventures that Scrouge McDuck took Huey, Dewey, and Louie upon.
