Flashback to 80s cartoons

"By what creeps, what crawls, by what does not,
Let all that grows recede and rot.

Does the quote above sound familiar to you? What about this...

"Three suns aligned, pour forth their light,
And fill the archer's bow with might.

To measure change, we need to have a reference point. What better reference point that the 80s, when life, I believe, was simple and the world was still so innocent. "We are the World" was *the* song. We, as the world, cared for one another.

Ah, let us not talk about depressing stuffs on this blog, at least not today anyway. You can get enough of them in the newspapers.

Let us talk about the two quoted items above. They were taken from a cartoon series which I enjoyed very much. If I recalled correctly, they were screen in Malaysia back in 1988 or 1989, when I was in the final years of my primary school.

There were also other equally memorable cartoon series during that time. I remember faithfully following cartoons like Transformers, Thundercats, Jem and even M.A.S.K.!

Still wondering where the quotes came from? Well, they are from the cartoon series Visionaries. Anyone seen it before? :)

Fast forward to present day. We have equally good cartoons as well, though I have to say that I have not been able to really follow them closely. Among the more popular ones are Naruto, Bleach, Ragnarok, etc... Noticed they are all animes? Animes seems to be the *IN* thing. For more information on animes, you can check out this site. Oh, I intentionally left out names like Southpark, etc... I don't think they make a lasting impression like the 80s cartoon mentioned earlier.

Anyway, for those who want to take the short trip down memory lane, here are some sites you can visit...





By the way, in case you have not heard, Transformers: The Movie is coming in 2007.

Sorry... I just remembered. The series is called Challenge of Gobots.

Speaking of 80s cartoon series, anyone else remember this line:
"Power Extreme"

It's from Centurions.

Then there's also "Captain Power".
