Does anyone remember the cartoons about the vehicles that turned into other types of vehicles?

I used to have a car whose wheels turned in and wings came out, and a motorcycle that turned into a helicopter.


Also, does anyone remember the little freakish wrestling guys? About 1.5" tall big muscles, sometimes extra arms. They made a few cartoons about both of these.
Magic is doing improbable things with odd items that, under normal circumstances, would be unnessecary and quite often undesirable.

(Do you say "Who's" when talking about a thing?)


You wouldn't say "who's" even if you were talking about a person in this situation. "Whose" is the possessive form of who (or maybe which, in the case of an inanimate object). "Who's" is a contraction of "who is" or "who has."

I think this is the first helpful thing I've posted on here!

And yes, I belive the little men you refer to were called simply "MUSCLE MEN." They were the Pokemon of the mid 80's. Ha!

Muscle men! I wish I still had mine...

"contraction" and "possessive" are made up words and you know it.

You and me both. I have no idea how many of those my poor parents had to purchase, but it was a lot. Now they are rotting in some garbage dump. Yay capitalism!

"they're" not rotting... the PVC those things are made of will last FOREVER!

Ah, yes! Speed Racer and Johnny Quest (the original incarnation, not the POS from the 1990's), two of my favorites from the past. Haven't heard anyone mention Marine Boy in a long time. Just wish I could have gotten hold of some of that special gum so that I, too, could breath underwater!

I really liked Batman: The Animated Series when he did all his cases alone.

Right now, two of my favorites are Avatar: The Last Airbender and Jimmy Neutron, Boy Genius, both on Nickelodeon!

How many think that some of the best stuff comes from Japan? I've seen a lot of good (and equally strange) anime over the years. Two "oldies but goodies" were Astro Boy and Kimba the White Lion.

can't stand! I understand how clever they're being, but I can't stand this show!

My wife and kids were major fans, it was all right.

watched quite a bit, got tired of it. Looking forward to the movie.

Quote:
Family Guy

again, they're clever, but go that one step past funny into annoying. I like the flashbacks and any time they get Brian and Stewie together.

Quote:
Beavis and Butthead

one episode, where they got involved with a cult, made me laugh, otherwise no.
Daria was funnier.

Quote:
Futurama

almost consistantly funny. I <hate> when cartoons make me cry though. (The space bee episode or Fry and Leela's wedding for example. I've never seen the "Fry's dog" episode and hope I never do!)

Quote:
Dragonball Z


Too much fighting and screaming for me. 20 minute battles stretched out over three weeks with the lead character running along a bridge the whole time!

If you chose to disagree with me I will report your posts and try to get you banned.

There are others of course. Before you post them I would like to remind you that if I don't agree, I will try to get you banned. Also I may try yo get myself banned for Pokemon (Which I still like, but feel kind of odd about liking) And Powerpuff Girls which is really cool, but crosses that line of manliness.....


I await my fate with clean hands and composure.

I want a copy of the "Cats of Phantom Blvd." with "Andy Loud Webby."

And I agree with the poster above who mentioned "Batman Beyond." I thought the whole animated Batman idea was going to jump the shark when they suggested that, but it worked big time!

I haven't got a clue. Actually, I might know it, and I might feel like a total idiot when I'm told.

Actually, I <do> have a short list.

Danny Phantom
Power Puff Girls
Batman - The Animated Series
Batman Beyond
Animaniacs

There are probably many others, but I can't think of them off the top of my head.

I can tell you though that it's doubtful any of them were Hanna/Barbara TV cartoons.

Rugrats - David Regal

He has also written some episodes of Rocket Power another cartoon...
...and of course my favorite sitcom "Dharma and Greg", but then that is off topic, so Josh will be out to get me banned.

Josh you can PM me about it.

He may have, considering it's the same production crew.. I know of the other per a conversation with him over a BLT and onion rings.
