Totally 80s by J-Scott-Campbell Totally 80s by J-Scott-Campbell
An "oldie" but a "goodie"! This originally appeared back in Wizard magazine #136 in 2002 as the opening spread to an article entitled "80's EXTREME!"

Pencil line-art by ME! Digital colors by the talented Matt Milla!

UPDATE!: (Robert Stack: "Unsolved Mysteries" voice!)

"Woooaaahhh!!!" Over 30,000 views and about 500 comments in 24 hours!!! And without being an "Official Daily Deviation"! You guys are the BEST!! Ok, just a few additional general replies:

* The robot looking, armored guy in black on the far right is a "Micronaut"! I agree, I didn't think he was in the same league as the rest, but the editors at Wizard magazine insisted he be there for some reason, so, "there you go!"

* I too have a soft spot for SilverHawks, M.A.S.K, The REAL Ghostbusters, Bravestar, and even Jem!, My little Pony & Rainbow Brite (Lol!) but this was the list that we came up with as a group! Maybe I'll have to do a "Totally 80's" II (Yes, with roman numerals, 'cause that's SO f**kin' 80's!!! ;-P!) Make your suggestions be heard!

* Yes, "Battle of the Planets" (or "G-FORCE" as it will ALWAYS be known to THIS big kid!) was probably more 70's, you're right...

* YES, there IS a Robotech back there!

* Comments that mentioned Mrs PacMan, finding the Rubik's cube, and specifically taking the time to locate ALL 4 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, give yourselves a GOLD STAR, You guys RULE!

And for a little "SeX-ay 80's"...

Ok I want to frame this and put it on my wall! Please tell me I can find a print somewhere that is legal?

The big six of 80s cartoons for me have always been GI Joe, He Man and the Masters of the Universe, Thundercats, Transformers, Voltron, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Still, I'm surprised no one has mentioned C.O.P.S. here. I hear a bit about it, but it's truly noteworthy.

Wow, this takes me back. The Micronaut was the only one I didn't recognize. Of course I only know the names of the Care Bears and Strawberry's cat because I have a three-year-old daughter and those two franchises are back in style. I just love Papa Smurf's expression!

You should seriously consider making a comic book of your own based off of all the characters in this picture in one filthy hot hot heat mash-up.
It could be absolute nonsense, but with your art and these characters -- you can't go wrong.
JRTHEDEVIANTARTIST Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2012
You took the words right out of my mouth,you should have had Bravestarr,The Real Ghostbusters,M.A.S.K.,SilverHawks,Jem,My Little Pony,Rainbow Brite,Muppet Babies,She-Ra:Princess Of Power,Super Ted,Inspector Gadget,The Wuzzles,The Snorks,Alf,Felix The Cat,The Fraggles,Duck Tales,Dragon`s Lair,Mr.T,Visionaries,Pound Puppies,Mario Bros.,Garfield And Friends,The Get-Along Gang,Chuck Norris:Karate Kommandos,Bucky O`Hare,Alvin And The Chipmunks,Dinoriders,Droids,Dungeons And Dragons,Ewoks,Donkey Kong,Bettlejuice,Punky Brewster,The Sooby Doo Cartoon that aired in the 80s,C.O.P.S,Madballs,Dennis The Menace,Teddy Ruxpin,Thundarr The Barbarian,Jayce And The Wheeled Warriors,Gummi Bears,Astro Boy,Chip N`Dale:Rescue Rangers,Danger Mouse,The Adevntures Of Paddington Bear,The New Adventures Of Winnie The Pooh,The Jetsons,Richie Rich,TigerSharks,Galaxy Rangers,Go
-Bots,The Karate Kid,Galtar And The Golden Lance,Rambo, RoboCop(the 1980s were an amazing time,I can`t remember any other time period where R-Rated Movies like Ramobo and RoboCop would get turned into Kid-Friendly Cartoons).

I love this ''Totally 80s Collage''of Classic 1980s Cartoons you`ve done.If I have enough room left on my walls(because I`m getting many framed pictureds for my place),I`ll get a copy of this framed for my walls,too.Yeah,you really should do a ''Totally 80s II.'' Also,have you thought about doing a ''Totally 80s'' Collage for 80s Movies?That would be awesome! So would a ''Totally 90s'' Collage for 90s Cartoons and 90s Movies! Any one who can make a Care Bear look bad ass and cute and cuddly at the same time is a great artist,in my book! I love a lot of your work and this doesn`t disappoint,either.Great Work!

I love how the red Care Bear is like "take that you frigging impossible devil puzzle!"

As a hungarian, very good to see the Rubik's cube on a magnificent comic artist's page. :) Great works, keep it up!
