My 1980s just kept spreading because it's a 40th anniversary of the decade in which it's the golden age of animated entertainment. Love it, man.

I recognized 90% of them before I saw the list. My childhood had the best cartoons.

I love Camp Candy because I find it adorable. John Candy is funny and has cute pudgy face. I love kidd Video because it's crazy and awesome. I also G1 MLP because it's beautiful just like G4 MLP. Fuck you, G1 MLP haters, you're so ungrateful that you should ashamed of yourselves!
