Western Cartoons of the 80’s

He-Man & The Masters of The Universe

Adam would pull out his sword, yell, “By the power of Greyskull..”, transform into He-Man then end up beating the living daylights out of evil-doers.

  1. OMG! Memorries of pre 1990’s KTV and UHF/VHF programming!

    Also memorries or the Video Club, Matchmox, IVC, and Al-7izam Al-Azraq stores where I used to go to get video tapes!

  2. I didn’t watch any arabic shows when I was younger!

    I definitely watched Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, I even have pictures in the costume.

    Inspector Gadget <3

    The rest was Seseme Street and Barney. Good times!

  3. Thank you Photoflow :]

    The Stallion, yes I recall my stack of video tapes. I think I had them all memorized too.

    Fallen Angel, LOL, I didn’t mention any arabic anime but, yes they were great as well.

  6. Finally! & I thought I was the only one that didn’t grow up watching Arabic cartoons.. What you did? Dammit! Anyway I was always HeMan & my sister Shera (for obvious reasons), but I also remember spending countless hours imitating Bugs Bunny, shouting ‘Beep Beep’ & trying to memorize all the Carebears.. Maybe it was just me then :P

  7. Dear 3baid,

    I loved how you so wonderfully put this post into a historical context, and tied it to such a huge event in Kuwaiti history. We all each have stories of that time, and tie things like the movies, music or cartoons ( as you have) we were occupied with to it.

    LOL, the kids of my generation in Kuwait have our own cartoons and shows imprinted upon us too, since we were tiny tots at a time when KTV2 used to come on and go off at certain times of the day, so each program or cartoon was studied with great attention and was absolutely precious !


    Those were the days….. ;)


  8. Laialy, You called? :P

    Erzulie, Yes Kabamaru is classic :) I can’t recall any particular episodes though, I just remember that he loves eating a lot.

    7tenths, My favorite looney tunes characters were the road runner :D

    Dear Ms. Baker, I remember the KTV2 days quiet well. They had Austrailian cartoons like Blinky Bill!

  9. Ahh yes, I was in the UK during that time as well. I watched ALL of those cartoons every single day plus more. We used to tape them and watch them over and over again. We still have the tapes. :D :D :D

    My mouth used to water watching the Turtles eat their pizza. I remember the *I CRAVE PIZZA .. NO MORE..* episode like the back of my hand.

    Heman and Sheera. I LOVED the villains in that cartoon.

    Thundercats!! My brother and I had the toy swords and action figures oo kenna nel3ab Thundercats bil bait. I lovvvve Mumraaa.. the ever living. His sa3abeel was always visible when he opened his mouth to scream or to laugh. :D

    Ahhh wonderful, wonderful memories. I’m just so happy I was alive during those times because these days the humour is different and the cartoons are just weird. I know, because I still watch, even though I’m 18. :P
