    Dude, those were the best cartoons ever! I think even My Little Pony was better than most of the saturday morning cartoons today. Also, they have started to re-make He-Man, how cool is that? :cool:

    I remember when I was a kid, I had to wake up around 6am every saturday and sunday not to miss all those cool shows from sky channels :D

    Those were the days..
  11. Haha! Fortunately I've been prepared for this....

    is my website about everything 80s (or everything I could think of)...

    . . . and of course, "Breaking 2: Electric Boogaloo" :D :cool: :p

    Anytime a sequel (the first one, anyway) comes out, I gotta tack on "Electric Boogaloo" to it.

    Reagan getting shot and surviving broke the Presidential curse!

    Can't forget Footloose, the movie that spawned "The Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon".

    no doubt there will be exceptions, then again...

    "Mr. Corleone, do you deny that you are in fact the leader of the nefarious hip-hop crew, Electric Boogaloo?"

    "It's a complete falsehood, so step off Senator."

    (a breakdancing battle breaks out in the courtroom)

    ok, there are exceptions :D
